“If you want to conquer pain, anxiety and stress in life, make it a point to visit great trees often and make a connection with them
. . .
Trees are great empaths. Trees have this unusual power to take your pain away, if you can establish a connection with them”
Hi from The Rookwood Inn and the beautiful Berkshires where today life is a lot slower and less hectic.
Media has been buzzing about the COVID-19 virus with stress, concern, uncertainty and anxiety on the rise. There is almost no place where you can go to escape the news! We have the same concerns and we’re extremely conscious of the need to stay safe and well.
According to the World Health Organization, the precautions are not only reminders of basic hygiene principles that we, and I’m sure you, observe every day, but also during this time how additional precautions should be practiced.
The Rookwood is committed to the health of you, your family and our staff.
If you’re wondering whether travel is possible during these uncertain times, I want to reassure you that we’re especially vigilant here at The Rookwood Inn, so if you choose to travel, you can relax and enjoy your stay here. Many of you can even avoid crowds and public transportation while you drive here in your own vehicle.
We are located in an area with little to no traffic and minimal industry so the air is clean. All of our windows can open so you may enjoy fresh air throughout the day and night.
Here are just a few of the additional ways we are responding to COVID-19:
- Until life becomes "normal" again, we will allow no more than 20 guests at the inn at any point in time
- We have doubled down on our already high standards and level of cleaning and use bleach solutions, antibacterial cleaners and sanitizers throughout the inn.
- Doorknobs, banisters, and other high touch areas are being wiped down multiple times each day.
- We have suspended serving breakfast buffet style so as to minimize the number of hands on utensils and people breathing on food.
- As always our dishes are washed and sanitized at very high temperatures.
- Since restaurants are open for takeout only we are ready to prepare up to three meals each day for you (24 hours notice please for lunch and dinner). If you desire, you can hibernate right here at the inn and be pampered.
We're open and ready to take good care of you
. Come hike, bike, and eat healthy food. Enjoy nature and the Botanic Gardens. Hug a tree. Did you know that exposure to nature reduces our levels of stress and anxiety? Migo, the inn dog, wants you to know that he is available for petting and cuddling.
If you've been told to work from home bring your laptop and phone, use our high speed WiFi, and work here surrounded by sounds of nature and let us take care of you.
We want to invite you to come and stay with us, if you are so inclined, during this stressful time in order to recharge and create happy memories here at The Rookwood Inn. Enjoy some time away to recharge and fill your body with some great fresh mountain air in our beautiful Berkshire Hills, enjoy delicious homemade immune supporting food and return to your 'normal' life feeling full of good health.
