Winter getaway/babymoon in Berkshires/Cooperstown?

My wife and I are planning a babymoon for mid-February, and want to visit the Cooperstown Baseball HOF. Are there things to do around there, or things to do in the Berkshires, that are pregnant-friendly and winter-friendly?

My wife is expecting a baby in April, and we are looking to go to the Berkshires/Cooperstown for a babymoon in February (Feb 15th-17th). We'd both like to visit Cooperstown baseball museum, and would probably do that on Sunday (flexible). Looking through a bunch of websites, it seems that a lot of things there would be closed. I've also started to look at Stockbridge / Williamstown as places to stay and things to do on over the weekend. I understand that the Berkshires and Cooperstown are around 2-2.5 hours away. We would leave early Sat. morning, so we could stop on the way to and from Boston on Sat. or Monday and spend Sunday in Cooperstown.
Would Cooperstown be worth it to stay for the entire weekend? The Longwood Inn looks nice, but we'd rather not be stuck with nothing to do in that region if most things are closed.
If not, should we stay somewhere else? Williamstown looks quaint - is the MOCA worth a visit?
Are there things to do in February in the Berkshires that don't involve cross country skiing or hiking? My wife will be fairly pregnant, so we can't do any activities like that. Bars/beer tasting/wine etc are unfortunately out of the question.
We are coming from Boston, so any recommendations farther away than Cooperstown might be too far.
