This house provided us with peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting. It's not far from town, but even if you just want to hang out at home, this is the place. The house, the grounds, the flowers, the pool, all inviting you to just stay home and relax.

magical place

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at tofu's retreat last July. This was by far the nicest house that we ever rented in the berkshires. Everything was the best quality,from the chief's kitchen,to non chlorinated pool. A lot of love went into this house and we felt it.
