Not too fancy. Where to stay?

Not too fancy. Where to stay?

I thought I was going to get away sooner, but now I am definitely getting a 3 day getaway Oct. 15- 17. I have never stayed in the Berkshires, and I think that a kind of new relationship needs a new venue. Hiking, outdoors, good eats and drinks, lively, fun not too young or old, not too confined but not the mainstream type. Help! Seems like my choices are too small and fancy or too run of the mill or outdated motel. I don't mind spending $100 or so for a nice room and maybe some vittles but don't want a shared bathroom or somebody right next door with old, paper-thin walls and creaky bedsprings.

If you check booking.com you will find a number of places in the Berkshires in your price range. Some of them look like the creaky floor outdated motel type, but there are a few that look nice and with good reviews.

$100 is a low budget for peak Autumn travel season. I think you'll need to increase your budget, or just have fun "roughing it" with a more very rustic place, or old-school motel.
