The Birchwood Inn, Lenox MA

Veterans Day is one of the few Federal holidays that has not been moved to a Monday, which means a lot of us will not be going to work on Thursday, November 11. If you’re a veteran, you can have a free mini-vacation in the Berkshires courtesy of eleven B&Bs that are offering rooms at no charge to vets on Wednesday, November 10. The B&B for Vets program was launched last year in West Virginia, and now some 800 inns in 49 states are participating in the program. Rural Intelligence Road Trips“We are proud that so many of the Berkshire Visitors Bureau member inns and B&Bs [such as the Inn at Stockbridge, right] are taking part in this fantastic program,” says Laurie Klefos, president and CEO of the Berkshire Visitors Bureau. “I believe this is a great way for Berkshire County to show its support for our veterans and hope to continue and grow this as a Berkshire tradition.”
