In old Stockbridge up on the hill. Beautiful gardens with some pretty rich history. If you spend a day in Stockbridge and you're into architecture it's worth it. The road it's one of the better ways to get to the Tanglewood concert hall if I remember correctly and there are tons of wonderful looking houses up on this ridge.
