In the Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R.Tolkien

the House of Elrond is described like this:

Frodo was now safe in the Last Homely House east of the Sea.

That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported

‘a perfect house, whether you liked food or sleep or story-telling,

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.
