Eastover is a retreat center sitting on a 600 acre sanctuary located minutes from downtown Lenox, Tanglewood Music Center, Shakespeare & Co., Kripalu Center, and other cultural venues in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. Dedicated primarily to the holistic community - holding many Qigong, Taichi, Yoga and Chinese Medicine retreats annually, we offer spacious workshop and program rooms with multiple meeting and studio facilities for teachers, groups, corporate training and retreats. The estate is designed around an evocative “Summer Cottage” and immerses you in a contemplative, holistic environment from the moment you enter its grounds - from its courtyards and terraces overlooking English and Japanese gardens, to its sun-drenched Terrace Café, inviting mix of manicured greens, meadows, woodland trails and breathtaking views of the Berkshire Mountains. Eastover offers a wide variety of spacious and comfortable overnight accommodations to fit any budget, from rustic, to luxurious; not your typical hotel or resort, our rooms are set up more like dorms for workshop attendees - they are simple, clean, and comfortable. Except for rooms located on the third floor of our mansion and on the second level of the Tally Ho building, all of them have private bathrooms.Tally Ho is our entertainment venue, an iconic gathering place loved for decades by people from the Berkshires and beyond. It is the largest indoor space in all of Berkshire County that is suitable for receptions, weddings, performances, workshops, lectures and corporate retreats. Newly renovated, it's equipped with a full kitchen, bar, state-of-the-art sound system and theatrical lighting.
Holding your corporate retreat at Eastover conveniently distances your staff - both figuratively and literally, from day-to-day distractions and allows for an ideal setting to conduct lectures, strategic planning and the like, all in an environment of tranquility and reflection. Ever considered the value of introducing corporate mindfulness to your workplace? Recognized for promoting productivity and improving employee performance, our Corporate Mindfulness Practice Retreats provide staff with the skills to respond appropriately to daily challenges and cultivate growth, innovation and creativity in the workplace. Being distinctly unique in style from a conventional hotel or conference center, on the Eastover grounds are five separate buildings, each with comfortable New England cottage-style rooms with "simple elegance" and varying amenities. In East Colonial, for example, we have eleven Deluxe rooms with amenities such as televisions, air conditioners, mini-refrigerators and hair dryers. On the other end of the spectrum, with many room styles in between, is our Bunkers facility, available during the summer months only, offering reduced amenities and air conditioning in each room. In addition to these choices, there are multi-bed dormitories, rustic three-room cottages, and very lovely accommodations available in our mansion as well. We have a beautiful heated indoor pool, sauna, massage facilities, qigong, yoga and mindfulness meditation classes. Fresh fruit, coffee, tea and a cold breakfast is included with your stay; a la carte hot meals can be ordered as well.
