Small in size but big in stature, Monterey is located on the Mill River in the southern Berkshires. This peaceful little town is ideal for lovers of wildlife, camping, and the outdoors. From the Monterey overlook at Beartown State Forest, you can take in one of the most spectacular views in all of the Berkshires, a panoramic vista of the 262-acre Lake Garfield and the rolling forests beyond.
In the summer and early fall, go swimming, boating, or fishing in Lake Garfield, or relax with a great book on the town beach. In the winter, explore Monterey’s many hiking and cross-country skiing trails. The town also boasts several small cafes and bakeries that are regarded as some of the best breakfast and lunch venues in Berkshire County. The hub of these—and the town itself—is the Monterey General Store, a local fixture since 1780 that sells locally-focused house-made foods, baked goods, pantry necessities, housewares, greeting cards, and a few fun surprises.
