Food Scene

Our good pals down at BG's make the most incredible quiche and bicuits you will ever have. They are open TH-SUN 8-4pm. Lunch there we have two favorites- the salami and fennel sandwich is fab and the special salad. Stumptown coffee and espresso drinks. Great atmosphere, locals like to gather here on the circle outside in the spring summer and fall.

Lord have mercy. If you like authentic mexican food that is FULL OF FLAVOR this is the place for you. Our close friend Cris is from Puebla in Mexico. He cooks from his heart and you will love his playfulness with spices and flavors. Tamales are increible, moist and easy to eat on the go. My favorite for lunch is the NAKED burrito, his burrito made without a tortilla. Succulant meats, rice, cilantro, fresh gauc, beans-- no gluten, sugar and you can ask to hold the dairy too.

Drinks & Nightlife

Angus and Gray, the proprietors of our new People's Pub set the friendly tone here in our new, beautifully renovated town pub. Aside from having delicious cocktails (my fav is the BEES KNEES and my husband the Manhattan) they have an incredible chef from Brooklyn serving up delicious food. You'll find staples like wings and burgers here-- and a lot more. In January every Thursday is OYSTER THURS and it's 1.00 for a fresh shucked oyster. Add a martini and your are in for a great night.

Love the Chatham Brewery for the best locally brewed beers and a great outdoor area to chill with a pint and some great pub food. Awesome place to hang after a nice bike ride. Loads of locals, lots of families. Try the FARMER'S DAUGHTER their signature rye IPA.

Parks & Nature

Just around the corner you will find a small but surprisingly wild park with a few hiking trails. To access Borden Pond from our house, turn right or left out of our driveway. If you are walking up Austertlitz St take a right on Jones Ave. Down Austerlitz, take a left. It's the road right behind our house. Walk toward the tennis courts. past the Courts there is a yellow private home. You can walk through the driveway and to the head of the trail through their yard. This is public access but be kind to our neighbors and leash your dog. you can take the low trail all the way to the end, where Rt 203 enters the town of Chatham. you can loop back through town.

About a five minute drive away, this beaucolic spot used to be a dairy farm. Now conserved by the Land Conservancy it's a great place to walk, without a lot of hills. A beautiful view of the surrounding berkshire foothills. Cross country ski or snowshoe in the winter here with the locals!

Arts & Culture

The Thompson Giroux Gallery is a great place to see exceptional artists show their work. Welcoming and without pretense, this gallery has become an institution in our small town; their rotating shows run for six weeks and feature fine art in different mediums. The openings are not to be missed social events with wine, cheese and tasty treats from The Taste Box up the road.

Joe's Berry Farm has been in operation for over 20 years. It's our favorite place to buy fresh veggies and greenhouse grown lettuce, greens and herbs. Joe and son Jonathan grow fresh greens year round!! They have grassfed meats (try Schober Farm grassfed burger!) and they also have milk eggs and bread.
