A Weekend of Theater, Dance & Art in the Berkshires: 8/25-8/27

200.00

ALL MAIN ROOMS IN THE HOUSE & SPOTS IN THE VAN ARE NOW SOLD OUT. BUT the Inn at Sweetwater Farm is in walking distance of our air bnb and can be booked directly via their site: https://www.innsweetwater.com/ (there are already a few members staying there). And two other car pool options, one leaving from Queens and another from the UES. Please book your shows/activities below ($200 total for all) and then email me at alex@womenofculture.org to arrange your transport. *Also, I will be organizing a gathering in July for all those signed up for the trip so we can get to know one another a little better before heading up to the Berkshires together :)*

****

Join us for the perfect weekend getaway to the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts, August 25-27th! Chock full of post card-perfect towns and mountain vistas, the Berkshires are just three hours from NYC and home to some of the country's finest cultural institutions.

Over the course of our two-night stay in a gorgeous rustic farmhouse in Great Barrington, we will take in dance at Jacob's Pillow, theater at Shakespeare & Company and fine art at MassMOCA. Plus a visit to Edith Wharton's self-designed summer estate, the Mount, delicious food, drinks and plenty of time to bond with fellow women of culture.

We will be leaving from and returning to Active Car Rental on 33rd St & 3rd Ave. The ride to the bnb is approximately 2.5 hours, and we will stop for lunch along the way. Return trip will be slightly longer (around 3.5 hours) as we will be leaving directly from MassMOCA.

This unique experience is only open to 6 very lucky Women of Culture, so make sure to reserve your spot ASAP! Full trip cost is $475/person + meals (includes transportation, accommodation and tickets/fees to all activities listed below) if paid in full before 6/11 at midnight OR $550 + meals if paid after 6/11 or in two payments of $275 each (one payment due to reserve and balance due on 8/25). All rooms are double-occupancy with shared bathrooms.

Please feel free to email me at alex@womenofculture.org with any questions. I can't wait to share this amazing experience with you!

Please note the Berkshires are fairly remote — there is no public transportation, and our rustic farmhouse accommodation is about a 7 minute drive from downtown Great Barrington. Uber and Lyft are available, but not as readily as in NYC, and you should not count on being able to walk places.

Great Barrington (home to our bnb) is approximately 2.5 hours (depending on traffic) from NYC, 20 minutes from Shakespeare & Company and the Mount (both in Lenox), 30 minutes from Jacob's Pillow (in Becket), and 60 minutes from MassMOCA (in North Adams).

We will leave directly from MassMOCA on Sunday, so the drive back to the city may be slightly longer (approximately 3.5 hours depending on traffic). Please let me know if you need to return by a certain time on Sunday, but I wouldn't plan on being home before 8pm just in case of traffic.

All payments are non-refundable, though you may transfer your spot to someone else. Please let me know if you would like to come but have any issue with the payment options/due dates.
