Welcome to Lee  Thank you for visiting our warm and charming village by the meandering Housatonic River, in a valley with breath taking views in the leafy Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts.    Throughout the seasons world class music, dance, theater, museums, and historic homes are all within easy driving distance. Outdoor activities abound on our gentle slopes, country roads and glimmering lakes. In autumn the leaves change to a dazzling array of colors unique to the northeast region of the country. Ski areas are nearby when winter turns snowy white; spring brings the fantastic rebirth of our fields, farms, and hillsides.    Lodging, food, drinks, shopping, and outdoor activities are here to suit every taste and to fit every budget. Volunteers will assist you at the Lee Visitor Information Center at the Town Park, open Monday-Saturday from 10:00-4:00 pm during the spring/summer/fall seasons.    The mission of the Lee Chamber of Commerce is to promote the town, not only as a vacation destination, but also as the site of a strong business community, well-regarded school system, and a vibrant and committed citizenry. We at the Chamber are here to assist in all areas; supporting our local business owners, artisans and visitors alike as well as preserving our robust sense of community and small-town values.   Lee exudes a healthy and delightful atmosphere in which to live, learn, shop, visit, enjoy nature, and conduct business. Welcome to our classically quaint New England town of Lee, we’re open year ‘round for your enjoyment.  Yours truly,   Robert Healey Board President, Lee Chamber of Commerce Owner, Chambery Inn

One of the Berkshire’s most famous residents says that when he returns from his world travels and drives west toward exit two on I-90 in Lee, his “blood pressure returns to normal.” Let’s call it the “Berkshire Effect,” a sense of well-being engendered by the verdant hills and the meandering rivers. The rich cultural offerings—the world’s greatest music played by one of the leading symphony orchestras, the nation’s most famous dance festival, high quality theater offerings, outstanding museums, historic homes and so much more—further the sense that all is right with the world. Inspired by this sense of balance, National Geographic named the Berkshires one of the top ten most authentic places in the world for visitors. In the same vein, we love to tell the tale of a West Coast woman visiting a Boston hotel who asked the concierge what to see on her brief two-day trip to the Berkshires. No press agent could have come up with a better answer: “Go to Lenox, it’s a marvelous boutique; go to Stockbridge, it’s a classic photo op; then go to Lee, it’s the real Berkshires.” May we invite you to come see “The Real Berkshires?”
