Berkshires Shirakaba is a Japanese-American mini resort, located in the northwest corner of the Berkshire Hills in Massachusetts.

It sits on on a 21+ acre hill that is private and peaceful. We have a 9' x 39' indoor swimming pool, a far-infared sauna and a Sundace 6 person spa.

Each Suite has its own mini fridge, microwave and Japanese hot pot for our complimentary teas. Your non alchoholic beverages will also be in your mini fridge before your arrival. We do not have a liquor license, so feel free to BYOB.

Both suites have western bedrooms with memory foam, king size mattresses. We only have 2 suites that each have a private Japanese tatami mat room. You are welcome to eat your made to order Japanese or western breakfast at a low zataku table as room service or use this peaceful area to read, meditate, or utilize or free wifi service.

Each suite has a full private bathroom and the Take No Ma - Bamboo suite also has a bathtub, while the Matsu No Ma - Pine Suite has a walk-in shower for two. All bathrooms and lavatories at Shirakaba have asian toilet seats. Toiletries are provided for guests and to compliment our Green award we also now offer Healthy Home brand toxic-free products for our guests' use.

Guests can also choose the optional massages. Massages can be enjoyed at several locations at Shirakaba: in your suite, or in the pool room> And during the summer, the perfect place for couples massages is out at the gazebo. Shirakaba has won the Best Inn and Most Romantic Getaway award 4 years in a row and is consistently high ranked on Trip Advisor winning its Platinum Green Leaders Award yearly.

There is a beautiful gazebo a 5 minute walk from the house that overlooks the berkshire hills and is a perfect setting for weddings with up to 20 guests.

It is a favorite place for intimate weddings, honeymoons, birthday and anniversary celebrations and can be decorated in all your favorite colors. Your hosts' discreet presence will provide you with daily offerings of baked good you choose before your arrival and a large selection of hand made frozen delights.

There is also a vast library of DVDs and CD available and streaming Netflix as well.

One of Shirakaba's most popular amenities is our optional 6 course Japanese dinner event. It usually takes about 2-3 hours and our record is 5 1/2 hours.

In warmer months, you'll begin your dinner with your appetizer out at the gazebo, with a gorgeous view of the Berkshire hills. In warmer months you can also finish you meal out on the deck at the firepit under the starlit Berkshire sky.

The Berkshires offer a multitude of cultural and outdoor attractions, and Bonanza Bus Lines offer service to Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where Louise will shuttle you to and from. There is also a grocery and liquor store right near by so you will not have to bring as much.
