Come away to the ancient hills and cool forests we call the Berkshires. Leave the busy city and escape into Shirakaba, voted the Best Romantic Getaway, and Best Inn in the Berkshires 3 years in a row. Breathe our clean air, drink our clear water, toss your head back and see stars as if you'd never seen them before.
Stay at a bed and breakfast in the Berkshires like you’ve never seen before. Berkshires Shirakaba is a Japanese-American guest house set high on a wooded ridgetop in the far western Massachusetts village of New Ashford. With only two suites, optional traditional Japanese dinners, made to order western, including vegan and gluten-free options or Japanese breakfast, optional massages, a private indoor swimming pool and 6 person Sundance Spa it has been called "more a resort" than a Bed and Breakfast
As you come up the winding drive, look for the elegant white birches that give Shirakaba its Japanese name. It's a fitting choice for this most gracious guest house. Lose yourself in the middle of nature, take a short walk out to the gazebo to enjoy the night sky as only possible away from city lights. Then return to enjoy a peaceful, pampered, and restful stay.
