The SpaceThis space is ideal for the couple or person traveling alone who is inspired by nature. Whether you are traveling into the Berkshires to Kripalu for a workshop, visiting friends and family in the hill towns or greater Springfield area; here on business or just want some special time to yourself in a safe environment; the cozy cottage with the two ponds and brook located on three beautiful acres will offer you a visually serene experience! Sometimes we just need to get away and be pampered. Soaking in the Jacuzzi bathtub, sleeping late, home cooking and breakfast ready and waiting for you, walks in nature, listening to the babbling brook, driving up into the Berkshires for antiquing and quaint shopping maybe be just what your soul needs. Sometimes its nice to know there is someone you can talk with if you feel like company and someone who understands if you just want to be alone. There's a reason people choose to stay in someone's home and it's because it feels like 'home'. Unlike a lonely motel room, staying in a home offers warm hospitality, home cooking, quality conversations and a cozy ambiance with comfortable accommodations. Meeting new people and making friends across the globe is another wonderful feature for homes vs. motels. For women traveling alone it can offer a sense of safety and security. A home offers a warm "home" experience for any traveler.
