The rustic beauty of The Berkshires has inspired songwriters since the 19th century, drawing some of America's most beloved musicians to call this pocket of picturesque countryside home. This holiday season, there's a place for you at the hearth when you Escape to this snow-laden region for something magical to sing about: the Lenox Caroling Festival.

Score yourself a spot at this old-fashioned winter gala with a stay at one of several charming Berkshires hotels and inns.

Held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on December 7, 8, and 9, the annual Caroling Festival Weekend in the historic town of Lenox is a storybook winter scene come to life. Dozens of choirs from throughout the Northeast dot the street corners as they sing for prizes, while you meander about the shops and enjoy hot chocolate or mugs of mulled wine.

Whether you're here for the festive "Fa-la-la-la-las"or simply a seasonal New England retreat, each of the historic accommodations hits a high note with Gilded Age elegance—think claw-foot bathtubs, crackling fireplaces, and antique décor fit for a king—and high-tech creature comforts like fitness centers, hot tubs, and swanky spas.

"Occupying the far western end of the state, the Berkshires are only about 2½ hours by car from Boston and New York City, yet the region lives up to the storybook image of rural New England, with wooded hills, narrow winding roads, and compact historic villages," says a review from Fodor's.

Amid the snowy, holiday-themed streets to the award-winning restaurants in town, you'll demand an encore for this pitch-perfect New England Escape.

  • "All the better if your visit falls on one of those crystalline Berkshire nights when the wind lifts swirling snow from the dark fields and frozen lake, scattering it against the windowpanes."
