About Tom & Susan

Tom & Susan are both workaholics. Tom’s an active scientist and Susan’s a homemaker, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and wonderful ballroom dancer – hence the Ballroom on the top floor.

Tom bought the property in 2009 and removed the 1977 modular home that was there. He designed and built what you see today. It's a work in progress and continues to grow.

It is a large but simple spacious lived in comfortable country home. The main and top floor have 10 foot ceilings and the Ballroom has a 16 foot high cathedral ceiling. There are wood stoves throughout and free firewood. All kitchens have gas stoves (Tom likes to cook).

When the house is done we’ll start on the conversion of the post and beam barn.

Tom & Susan purchased this house in 2009

Why Tom & Susan chose Hancock

North Hancock is a pristine rural area nestled in the Beautiful Berkshires yet very close to everything – just minutes from Jiminy Peak, Tanglewood, Theaters, Museums, The Mass Pike, The Taconic State Parkway, Colleges, Pittsfield, Albany, etc. It’s 2 ½ hours from Boston and 3 hours from NYC. It is also less than 1 ½ hours from Mt Snow and many other ski resorts.

What makes this house unique

Brand New, owner/builder occupied, with panoramic views.

Walking distance to Jiminy Peak.

Great rental on a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this beautiful apartment! I spent two nights in the red apartment ( 1 bedroom) with my husband and toddler. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and generous. A fresh fruit basket on arrival was a nice touch. It was definitely like staying with family as another reviewer mentioned. The view from the sun room is amazing, and the entire property is very well maintained. The area is a little isolated ( what we wanted!) but there is a pub/ tavern and convenience store less than a mile away. Grocery store about a 20 min drive. There is also a farm next door and my son had a great time visiting the animals and playing on the grounds. This is a beautiful spot for a quiet weekend getaway. We will hopefully be back!

Stay here!!

  • 5 of 5
After reading the reviews, and communicating with Tom, I decided to book a trip for us to go to Jiminy Peak. The four of us (myself, my wife and our two daughters ages 8 and 5) stayed in the "Blonde Apartment" for 2 nights. For those of you that are on the fence, get off of it and book your stay here!! View of Jiminy Peak right out the front window. The apartment was so clean and well appointed, you would never have thought that anyone had EVER stayed there before. The main living area was open and spacious and had two pullout sofa's. If there was one thing that I would change to enhance the experience, it would be to put blinds and or shades on the front windows. Currently there are none, and the kids were awake as soon as the sun came up. Being so close to the mountain, I was able to get in a few runs and then came back to the apartment to get the kids. Tom and Susan were super nice, so much so it was almost like staying with family, and no I am NOT exaggerating. I will absolutely stay here again.

Beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I just returned from a weekend in the Berkshires. We stayed in the Blond Apartment. Tom was especially helpful! He came to get us when we arrived because we were unable to make it up the hill with our car after the snow storm. A fire was lit when we arrived, and Tom came down the second day to help is light another fire. Tom provided specific instructions for the apartment and additional information about the area via email. The house is situated on the top of a hill across from Jiminy Peak Ski Resort. While my boyfriend and I do not ski, it was still a beautiful sight. I hope that I will be able to return to explore the area in nicer weather. Thank you Tom and Nancy for your hospitality!

GREAT EXPERIENCE !

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I traveled from NYC for the weekend to get a few runs in @ Jiminy Peak & we had such a nice time. Tom was GREAT ! He was very welcoming and extremely helpful. Tom and his wife Susan have a HUGE home and its very well taken care of. She was so nice to welcome us with a basket of fruit. I would definitely go back for another a visit & highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a getaway.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family or four (two adults and two children) who stayed in Tom and Susan's Blond Apartment over the Thanksgiving holiday. The apartment is spacious, clean, and very comfortable. There was plenty of firewood for the stove, cable and Netflix for the kids, and a beautiful view of Jiminy Peak from the windows. Tom and Susan welcomed us with a basket of fruit, and literally gave us a carton of milk for the kids. Tom texted if we needed anything from the grocery store ... really, it was like staying with family. Just a short drive to Jiminy. Will definitely book again!

Great place; gracious,accomodating hosts

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for seventeen days in Tom and Susan's spacious, very well-equipped, and perfectly maintained property while visiting our daughter and family in Williamstown. The "blonde" apartment was ideal for the two of us as a "home away from home." The location is definitely rural, but less than 20 minutes from Williamstown's quaintness and Pittsfield's shopping. A restaurant, pub, and convenience store are across the road at Jiminy Peak, and a farm store is almost next door. Tom and Susan are warm and friendly people who take their renters' comfort and satisfaction very seriously. We are regular visitors to the area, but Tom pointed out some new hiking trails and places we hadn't previously explored. All in all, it was a great rental experience in a place we strongly recommend, run by two folks that we now count among our friends.
