Visit ArtCountry!

We don’t think there’s anywhere else quite like our corner of the world. Four incredible museums and an amazing theatre festival. Great hiking, biking, and river kayaking. Maple syrup. Exciting music, theater, and dance. Artisanal foods and craft beers. The Appalachian Trail. Farm stands and farm-to-table restaurants. Mountains, pastures, and endless beauty. Fresh air.

ArtCountry is nestled in the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts and at the foot of the Green Mountains in southern Vermont, less than three hours from New York and Boston. We have art and music all year round, but summer is especially lush. Check out these line ups:
