A Cure for Weariness

Rivendell - The Last Homely House
"That house was, as Bilbo reported long ago, 'a perfect house , whether you like food or sleep or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.' Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear, and sadness."
- J. R. R. Tolkien, Fellowship of the Ring

If the home of the elves is a bit too rarified, I suggest very strongly that of Farmer Maggot, Bamburlong.
