TO OUR WEBSITES
In 1778, English explorer Captain James Cook became the first European to discover the Hawaiian Islands... and the pineapple. Due to the shipping distance, in Great Britain and Europe, the scarce pineapple became the symbol of royal privilege. In the American colonies, fresh, dried, and candied fruits were largely used as a dessert. This fact made the "crowned fruit" the high symbol of social events thus meaning " welcome, friendship & hospitality.
Rated 5 of 5 Pineapples

The Inn at Richmond And Berkshire Equestrian Center
Authentically New England
Personal Functional Casual Cozy
"A Throwback to Historic Colonial Living" tm
While John Hancock was financing... Samual Adams was fomenting... and Thomas Jefferson was authoring our country's Declaration of Independence, craftsmen were hard at work creating this magnificent home which has been owned by prominent families for over two centuries. Now, centuries and decades later, our Berkshire estate stands as one of Western Massachusetts' treasures from the Revolutionary War Era.
Today, the rolling Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts provide a unique pastoral setting for TIARA EQUEST, where maples, meadows, and mountains frame our masterpiece of Colonial craftsmanship.
With its casual elegance and charm, our Colonial Equestrian Estate creates the perfect setting for a weekend getaway, a gathering with family or friends, an intimate or destination wedding, honeymoon, a corporate retreat, or more in The Berkshires.
The Inn and our on-site Berkshire Equestrian Center provide guests with a true change of pace… a country setting, which is a short drive from world renown cities such as New York and Boston, that provides access-within-minutes to favorite Berkshire attractions, restaurants, and shopping:
In Lenox / Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Company plus Canyon Ranch.
In Stockbridge / Norman Rockwell Museum, The Red Lion Inn, and Eden Hill. In Pittsfield / Herman Melville's Home, Museums & Theaters, plus fabulous Lakes.
In Northern Berkshire / Mass MOCA, Sterling Clark Museum, Williams College, Jiminy Peak, and more -- too numerous to name -- all throughout the Berkshires.
Enjoy TIARA EQUEST’s grounds and surrounds: Relax in our Terrace Garden... walk the property... visit and feed (which we will provide) the horses... hike Perry's Peak just up the road or hop on the Appalachian Trail to Mount Greylock... photograph / paint the vistas
-- create your own masterpiece! Most of all take advantage of our local knowledge. There is always much to do with too little time. Because...
The Berkshires are where nature sets the stage and culture, history & entertainment steal the show. The Berkshires are also where TIARA EQUEST is centrally located to provide a pleasurable, memorable stay. The totality of our property transforms one's spirit.
We look forward to your visit!
