The Beautiful Restaurant Tucked Away In A Massachusetts Forest Most People Don’t Know About
Nestled in the woods at the foot of Mount Race, this cozy Massachusetts restaurant has been a gathering spot for friends and family for almost 200 years. Even with such a long history, The Stagecoach Tavern at Race Brook Lodge is still very much a local secret.
Here’s why this hidden Massachusetts forest restaurant is worth finding.
The Stagecoach Tavern is part of Race Brook Lodge, a heavenly nature retreat in the forest.
This lodge is an utterly unique and enchanting place to escape off the beaten path.
The tavern is candlelit and oozes cozy atmosphere.
Its interior is almost all original. The early 17th-century hand-hewn beams and wide-plank floors are simply gorgeous.
Curl up by the cozy fire in the winter, or relax under the stars with a cool drink in their courtyard during the summer.
Their menu is seasonal, which means they source ingredients from local farms and get creative with the flavors of the moment.
However, you're always sure to find plenty of hearty, delicious tavern fare.
Try the beer-battered fish and chips with a malt aioli for a fun twist on a classic New England dish.
Vegetarian and gluten-free options are always on the menu as well.
There's also plenty of live music and dancing events at the tavern and Race Brook Lodge, especially during the spring and summer season.
You're just as likely to bump into a local farmer at the bar as you are an artist or traveler.
Stop by for dinner between 5 p.m. And 9 p.m., Thursday through Sunday.
You can find the Stagecoach Tavern on Route 41 in Sheffield, 864 South Undermountain Road. Racebrook Lodge also welcomes events and weddings. For more hidden dining gems, check out
