My partner and I spent two nights at Berhshires Shirakaba this past week and couldn't have had a better time. Our stay managed to combine the casual freedom of being at home with the pampered luxury of a great inn. We could not have felt more at home in Louise and Sadao's house: getting drinks from the fridge, using their Direct TV, and just generally hanging out around the beautiful property. But unlike being at home, our every need was attended to: all the food and drink we could handle (including an amazing selection of homemade ice creams), special robes to wear to the pool and hot tub (in addition to the yukata for the house), a load of laundry done for us, and a bag of goodies to take with us when we left. We had initially planned the weekend as an Explore-Western-Mass-Getaway (and it is a perfect home base for the Williamstown Theater Festival, Mass MoCA, Tanglewood, etc.), but loved it so much at the house that we ended up spending most of our time there, except for the two evening shows we already had tickets for. You will love it!
