Learn about Gardens of the Berkshires.

Some gardens flaunt their knowledge of geometry. Some wish you to know how much work was involved. Some verge on the wild at heart. Experience them all on a tour of our gardens from west to east.  

Ashintully Gardens, Tyringham, MA
Surrounded by forested hills, the gardens were designed by composer John S. McLennan, Jr. A stream traversed by two bridges, rambling lawns, a cathedral of deciduous trees, and a central fountain create a soothing harmony. A short trail ascends to the ruins of Ashintully’s original mansion, where walkers enjoy fine views of the valley.

Mytoi Gardens, Chappaquiddick Island, MA
Nestled within Chappaquiddick Island on Martha's Vineyard, emerald-like, is the intimate Japanese-style garden, Mytoi, which offers natural serenity and a place of contemplation to visitors who venture here. Sheltered by a lovely pine grove, the preserve includes a small pond and island, non-native and native flowers and plants, footpaths leading past a birch walk and stone garden, and a trail winding toward Poucha Pond and the salt marsh.
