About Tudor House
The Tudor House itself, built circa 1890 by John Tudor, is listed in the Historic Registry of Places. With meticulous attention to detail, the home contains stunning original woodwork throughout. The bedrooms are either en-suite or have their own sitting rooms with views of Mt Greylock in the Berkshires of MA.
The common areas consist of bright, high ceiling gathering spaces containing ornate fireplaces that add to the overall ambiance. The kitchen, dining room, and breakfast nook are perfectly suited for nourishing the body, mind, and soul. Meals are lovingly prepared using organic, locally sourced ingredients.
Tudor House is a perfect place for respite, perhaps taking an individual sacred sabbatical or writers retreat, in conjunction with a Farm Stay. It is a place that mends the soul and rejuvenates the spirit.
“It is essential sometimes to go into retreat, to stop everything that you have been doing, to stop your experiences completely and look at them anew, not keep on repeating them like machines. You would then let fresh air into your mind. Wouldn’t you? This place must be of great beauty with trees, birds, and quietness, for beauty is truth and truth is goodness and love.”
