THE INN AT KENT FALLS is the perfect Winter Vacation Destination. Our spectacular fall foliage has passed and the last leaf has fallen.
This means that the traffic is gone and that you can enjoy the Inn and its surroundings at a leisurely pace with fewer crowds.
With the change of seasons a ray of light shines as we approach the holidays and New Year. Kent still offers plenty to do and see with a host of
fabulous shops, gallery openings and the best winter views of the Litchfield Hills. As you think of gift giving this year please be sure to notice that the Inn has gift certificates and remember that the shops in Kent are known for their excellent service and creative and complimentary gift wrapping.

Another favorite of mine is taking advantage of the cross country ski trails near the Inn and either snowshoeing or skiing amongst thousands of acres of protected land and forest. Back Country Outfitters can outfit you in the rental gear that you will need. In addition to skiing there are my favorite winter hikes. Explore the thousands of acres of protected land at Kent Falls, Pond Mountain and Macedonia Brook State Forest, all within minutes from the inn.
ABOUT MOHAWK MOUNTAIN
In 1947, Skiing Hall of Fame member, Walt Schoenknecht, created Mohawk Mountain Ski Area amidst the beauty of the Southern Berkshire Mountain. The following winter he invented snowmaking, which is currently used at winter resorts throughout the world.
