We got on the road at 7 am and arrived at our first stop, the Huntington Country Store in Huntington MA. This was a good time to stretch our legs and get Dave some coffee. It’s a great place, with lots of fresh baked goodies, as well as a very nice gift shop.
Our 2nd stop was at the Littleville Dam, at Littleville Lake, in Huntington MA.
Our 3rd stop of the day was at Chesterfield Gorge, which was amazing!
Our 4th stop was at the Chesterfield General Store and Café, where we had a really good lunch.
Our 5th stop was at the Three Sisters Sanctuary in Goshen MA. This place is SO cool!! A Must See when you are in the area.

Our 6th stop was at Chapel Falls in Ashfield MA
We then headed to our Airbnb in North Adams MA. We stayed in a unit in the Flat Iron Building. I would definitely recommend this host, who has a couple different listings. It’s located right in town with lots of things to see and do.

Sunday’s travel map
It was a short but jammed packed weekend. We walked a lot and saw some beautiful scenery and waterfalls. We had a great time exploring this area and only saw a very small part of this part of MA, with the time that we had. Unfortunately, Mount Greylock was closed. They are open from May to Oct. I spoke with a park ranger, who said that there was 3 feet of snow at the top of mountain. It looks like we need to go back at some point to see more.
There is so much beauty in this country, make sure get out and see it!
