Don't kid yourself, the Berkshires are muggy, too, in the summer.

Berkshires mugginess is not on a par with the Washington summer, as Jacob's Pillow is not situated in a swamp like Washington. Sounds like a great getaway to me.....interesting dance offerings! AND---not too far from Saratoga, so a trip to SPAC to see NYCB is a definite possiblity for a great dance-oriented vacation!!!!!

Sure, there are lots of links from the Jacob's Pillow page, but "user reviews" are most welcome!
For example, the weather in Saratoga when I was there about the same time of year in the 60's was quite muggy by day and verged on the chilly by midnight, when a breeze always came up. But that was then, a long time ago.

Lee (or Lennox?) Massachusetts, in the Berkshires in western part of the state. Tanglewood is right nearby.
Uh, for the geographically uninformed, where is Jacob's Pillow?
Unless you have a local friend who's willing to chauffeur you around, you need a car. The Berkshires have plenty of attractions where you can spend pleasant daytime hours. I enjoyed the Shaker village tour very much.

I also associate "Becket" with Jacob's Pillow, but looking at the map, that's a bit out of the way.
Lenox also has "The Mount" (Edith Wharton's home) and a number of other wonderful old homes, the Norman Rockwell museum. Route 7 has little dots all along, indicating a very, very scenic route.
