Attractions Near The Bridges Resort & Tennis Club
If you like to golf, make sure to bring your clubs for a day of play on verdant greens with valley views at the par-18 Sugarbush Golf Course. At only a mile-and-a-half southeast, it makes for an easy day trip.
Nature appreciators and hiking enthusiasts will find plenty of nearby trails ranging from easy to strenuous, while the dense hardwood forest’s healthy wildlife population affords possible glimpses of black bears, white-tailed deer, skunks, raccoons, and other forest dwellers—be sure to bring your camera.
Just up Sugarbush Access Road, Sugarbush Ski Resort is one of New England’s largest ski resorts with over 4000 acres of terrain, making it an all-seasons destination for mountain-themed fun. During the winter, its 53 miles of trails come alive with downhill and Nordic skiers and allows for snowshoeing and snowmobile excursions into the backcountry. When warm weather returns and melts the snowpack, fly fishermen take to the swelling waters of the Mad River and once-frozen lakes to cast for bass, trout, and other native fish.
Warm temperatures also bring mountain bikers to the rocky single-track around the area and you’ll find one of the best trails at nearby Mt. Ellen, where you can ride a chair lift to the top with your bike. Spring and summer days are also perfect for casual drives along Route 100, which winds its way through colonial towns like tiny Pittsfield and bucolic Plymouth.
Whether you're looking to unplug and unwind far from city congestion or compete on courts and play in pools, you'll find it all at The Bridges Resort & Tennis Club. Book your stay today for an incredible New England vacation
