Modern stays in Massachusetts
In the Berkshires, Stonover Farm is a contemporary oasis in a landscape awash with calico, taffeta, and lace. The owners lived in Los Angeles for 23 years before opening this B&B, which might account for the stripped down elegance of the decor and the first-class attention to details, such as bathrooms with two-headed showers, deep soaking tubs, and marble benches. The sprawling stone and wood farmhouse, circa 1900, has been completely renovated yet maintains a country feel with stone fireplaces, library, greenhouse, and breakfast room overlooking a duck pond. The inn can only accommodate 10 guests, guaranteeing a high pamper factor. A bonus: Its less than a mile to Tanglewood, and two miles from Lenox Village.
