The Perfect Escape!
The screen door to the patio stuck a little. That's it. Period. Otherwise, this place was perfect! Three adults (two seniors), two children, and one dog spent a spectacular week at Tofu's Retreat ("TR")! The property is huge (think backyard, front yard, pool, and football field (besides property in the woods)! The house is great. While nothing is as comfortable as home, TR was beautiful and great. If the house included just the remarkable screened in room (not porch but spectacular wood paneled room) and second floor wrap-around porch looking over the pool (picture taking a deep breath and enjoying morning coffee or an evening glass(es) of wine. The pool was perfect and having the heating option was great on our one cool day. Everything you need is there. There's plenty of exploring to do in the beautiful little town of Alford, and Great Barrington is an easy 10 minute drive with great restaurants, CVS, grocery stores and a great town center to answer all of your needs. Most importantly, TR's owners, Jeff and Greg, were amazing. They were accessible for all of my dumb questions and incredibly kind and caring about everything! They took a genuine and vested interest in my dog, who was going through chemotherapy (they made sure that I had the number for the best vet nearby and an emergency vet!). We loved TR and would highly recommend it!
Quiet and peaceful
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.
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.
