West Stockbridge, on the western border of the Berkshires and New York State, may not have the historic renown of its big sister, Stockbridge, but in recent years it has gained a reputation as a hip, up-and-coming Berkshire town with an unusual demographic mix of young families, established professionals, international emigrees, and retirees. In its charming downtown, a retail center features markets and shops, a noteworthy dining scene, and a burgeoning visual arts community.
There’s plenty to do outdoors in West Stockbridge, which was settled on the banks of the Williams River. Go fishing, boating, canoeing, and kayaking on one of the many lakes and streams or on secluded Card Pond. Pick your own apples, blueberries, and pumpkins at several of the local farms, or stock up on fresh produce at the West Stockbridge Farmers’ Market in the summer. Or take a cooking or foraging class at Williamsville Inn, tour the many art and craft galleries, or select a book to enjoy outside on the porch with a cup of tea or hand-roasted coffee at Six Depot Café and Roastery.
