My husband and I decided to take a weekend vacation in western MA. And we found this absolute treasure. We found ourselves in a different, simpler, uncluttered world of the BairdTavern. Carolyn provides warmth, welcome and wisdom,man's delicious home made apple butter with a sumptuous breakfast. I loved sitting in the kitchen and watching birds visit; the weather was old and icy, but warm and comfortable. Inside. I spent time knitting, spinning on my drop spindle, and talking about everything. Baird Tavern is situated along a main route to places in Lee, Stockbridge, and a host of treats in western MA. We left feeling like we had found the place for us to return. We also left feeling restored, enriched through the experience of touching history. This was our birthday weekend, and our present was discovering and enjoying Baird Tavern.
