Right from the property, glampers will be able to go for long, secluded hikes through the woods, as there are miles of trails, with abundant nature to spot. Those wishing to get involved in water sports and zip-lining can pay a visit to the nearby Zoar Outdoor Adventure resort, where they will find organized rafting, kayaking, and paddle boarding, as well as 11 zip lines, two sky bridges, and three rappels. During the colder months, the resort transforms into a winter wonderland, where guests can go skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. This is also the home of the Thunderbolt Mountain Coaster, which takes riders up 1,580 feet of uphill track through the forest before the cart disengages, and gravity takes over. The 3,870 feet of downhill track are designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing riders to slow speeds to a comfortable pace, or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels.
Guests looking for something a little more relaxing will be able to enjoy fantastic shopping and dining in the city of Pittsfield, where they will also find several museums and art galleries. Lovers of art and mindfulness will adore the accommodation's proximity to the Earthdance Community, an artist-run workshop, providing a dynamic mix of dance, somatic, and interdisciplinary arts training, with a focus on sustainable living, social justice, and community. This can be found only 10 minutes from the property.
A 20-minute car ride to the northeast of the property, glampers can discover the famous Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls. Originally built as a railway crossing in 1908, the bridge has now been transformed into a beautiful garden, with abundant colorful flowers. The town of Shelburne Falls is worth a visit in itself, as it's home to the Trolley Museum, which operates the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street Railway trolley car No. 10. Guests can also see the town's curious Glacial Potholes, a unique and fascinating rock formation.
