The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with Saran wrap.
The western Massachusetts town of Lee is known as the "Gateway to the Berkshires." It was named after Charles Lee, a general in the American Revolutionary War. Set in a quiet valley on the Housatonic River, the town lies in an area noted both for its mountainous landscape and thriving arts scene. Since the 19th century, artists as well as writers including Herman Melville and Edith Wharton sought solace and inspiration in the Berkshires. The tradition continues today at a number of repertory theaters and world-class museums.
There's also plenty to keep outdoor enthusiasts busy. Thirteen miles from the hotel stands Mount Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts. It's crisscrossed by 70 miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails, including part of the Appalachian Trail. Boaters and swimmers, meanwhile, flock to Laurel Lake, located one block from the inn. And the nearby Berkshire Botanical Garden encompasses 15 acres of native plants and topiaries sculpted to resemble notable Transcendentalists.

A cobblestone path leads up to the front door of this canary-yellow Dutch Colonial inn, which is tucked amid the Berkshire Hills. Inside, the rooms reflect the building's turn-of-the-century roots with period furnishings that include four-poster beds, button-back chairs, and lace curtains. Some rooms have fireplaces to help keep you warm on chilly nights. A local family runs the inn, and it's easy to see personal touches throughout. The onsite restaurant, for instance, serves a homestyle menu that focuses on farm-to-table fare. Diners can fill up on herb-stuffed trout and old-fashioned meat loaf with wild mushroom gravy to the sounds of live jazz and piano music.
The inn is conveniently close to several attractions in the Berkshires. It's a short drive from the Norman Rockwell Museum, family-owned wineries, and several area ski sites that are popular in the winter or after summer's first snowfall.
