The Information Age—with a different cable necessary for each of the 20 devices you carry—can tie you down more than it sets you free. Unplug and recharge your batteries with an Escape to Thornewood Inn, located off the grid in the countryside of Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

Hit "return" and download a bottle of Champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling cider with a box of Chocolate Springs Chocolates from award-winning chocolatier Joshua Needleman upon your arrival.

Wake up your system each morning in your antique-appointed room with private bath, cable TV, and views overlooking the the beautiful Berkshire Hills and the Housatonic River. Then, move your mouse downstairs for a byte of a delicious daily full breakfast.

Refresh a page from simpler history with a visit to the nearby Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. Click through galleries of famous paintings that will reboot your memory of classic Americana while taking in exhibits that include Rockwell's iconic Saturday Evening Post covers as well as works from other artists, such as Curious George illustrators Margaret and H.A. Rey.

During the winter, exchange mountains of data for mountains of snow, and hit the slopes at Buttnernut Ski Basin—a SKI magazine top ten-rated family ski resort just 1.5 miles away from the inn—or toggle among four other ski-area options depending on your preference settings.

After completing the mainframe of your day, you'll want to savor a whole menu of dinner options at The Point Restaurant at Thornewood Inn, where you can experience in real time the spicy New England crab cakes or the all-natural grilled pork chops with sauerkraut, homemade applesauce, and mashed potatoes—all set to a playlist of live music streamed right to your table.

This isn't computer science. Save yourself a program crash and input relaxation so you can output stress—just press the Escape key before this vacation gets deleted.

  • "Thornewood Inn is charming and comfortable, and come evening, elegant with candles on every table in the large and lovely space that is the dining room. We loved the quirky collection of antiques... quite a feast for the eyes."
