Where the Berkshires meet Litchfield County and the Hudson Valley...
CANAAN, CT stands at the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains and northeast of the Hudson Valley in peaceful Litchfield County.
Stunning and serene vistas reveal themselves all around as you drive our windy roads. The view from our house alone includes warm-colored sunsets each evening as the sun retreats beyond the mountains in the distance.
Here are just a few of the local activities...
Horseback Riding. An avid horsewoman herself, Director Megan Wyrick has a close relationship with Riga Meadow Equestrian Center where she can schedule private lessons for those interested.
Haystack Mountain. The 34 foot high stone tower at the summit of Haystack allows visitors to see Long Island Sound, the Berkshires, and peaks in Massachusetts and New York. Climb in the early evening for majestic sunsets.
Moon In the Pond Farm. This educational non-profit farm is the perfect way to take advantage of your time in the Berkshires and connect with the land. Accepting volunteers of all levels, volunteer one day a week, or just one day.
Bartholomew’s Cobble. This enchanting National Natural Landmark is located in Sheffield, MA just North of the state line. There are trails along the Housatonic River populated only by ferns, wildflowers and wildlife.
Butler Sculpture Park. This seasonal outdoor sculpture park is only one of a few single-sculptor designed parks. On forty acres, a gentle path takes you around 45 large-scale sculptures nestled among the greenery. On most days you'll see the sculptor Robert Butler actively working in his open studio. Stop to say hello as he loves to answer questions about his work.
Skiing and Snowboarding. In the winter months our area is a hub for ski enthusiasts. Butternut, Catamount and Mohawk Mountain are all a short drive from Eden Hill and a fun opportunity to go on a day trip with fellow residents.
Yoga. There are six separate yoga studios within 20 minutes of Eden Hill offering everything from vigorous flow to passive restorative yoga.
Kripalu. The benchmark of excellence in Wellness and Yoga practice. Kripalu offers special rates for anyone who lives within 30 miles with a special Yoga Dance class for just $5 and Wednesday day passes for $50.
Farmer's Markets. Every local town including Canaan has a weekly market. Featuring local produce, artisanal treats and often live music. During the winter Great Barrington's farmer's market heads indoors for special Holiday Farmer's Markets.
Nutritionist. We have several nutritionists we recommend to residents, each with a different background & approach to best suit individual preferences and needs.
