For over 25 years the Vittori family, owners of the Garden Gables Inn, have owned and farmed this historic property in nearby Richmond, just a few minutes away on the other side of the Lenox Ridge. Hilltop Orchards is a quintessential example of the open space and scenic views that make the Berkshire landscape so special. Visitors enjoy our farm winery and retail store, with wine tasting of award-winning Furnace Brook Wines offered year-round. The Hilltop Nordic Center provides over 3 miles of trails—professionally designed by Olympian John Morton—that offer beautiful 20-mile views and wooded glens. Fun for all levels of ability.
In season enjoy pick-your-own apples, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking, which are complimentary for Garden Gables Inn guests. Cross-country skis and snowshoe equipment are available for rent at the Nordic Center.
