The landmark Berkshire lake with an island nature preserve, Tanglewood, and ambience that says all is right with the world. The waters of Stockbridge Bowl have glimmered in the Berkshire sun for thousands of years. Originally scoured from the landscape by ice age glaciers, the lake has an attractiveness about it that defies description. This ethereal quality extends beyond the lake’s physical charm to include the feeling of the place. It’s as if a sense of peace and well-being hangs over the water like a vapor that is breathed in as you paddle, instilling quiet contentment.
