Louise and Sadao's hospitality is just as amazing as the other reviewers have said. And since we came back, my sweetie and I have told everyone they MUST go here for a weekend. The place is gorgeous: a japanese style home they built from the ground up. Visually, sweet. The breakfasts? I loved every morsel of the Japanese breakfast, but especially the homemade vegetables. And we both loved Louise's sweet rolls: a perfect taste of the midwest.
We also spent a lot of the rainy romantic weekend in the screened in porch. One afternoon, in the middle of stunning thunderstorms, it was set up for our side by side massages. And after showering and spending time in the hot tub, we came back upstairs for a relaxing, absolutely delicious multi-course Japanese dinner, expertly cooked by Sadao.
Add on to that the nearby Mass MOCA, Williams College, and the fabulous nearby farmstand and you have the perfect weekend for a pair of citified New Yorkers (or anyone else).
