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.

Spacious and comfortable get-away

  • 5 of 5

The "blond apartment" has a large common area with a great view of Jiminy Peak. All appliances were new and the kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. The owners were extremely helpful and available to answer questions. The apartment has one bedroom; the living room has 2 pull-out sofas. Relaxing, comfortable, clean, great location. I look forward to returning.

Comfortable and convenient to Jiminy Peak

  • 4 of 5

The owners, Tom and Susan, could not have been nicer. Tom responded to any inquiry via email almost immediately. They delivered a bowl of fruit upon our arrival. The blonde apartment was very spacious and we loved the wood burning stove. The kitchen was very nicely supplied.

5 STARS IN EVERY RESPECT

  • 5 of 5

I can only begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our 4 day stay at Tom and Susan's. Not only was it an apartment to die for, Tom and Susan are two of the most delightful people you will ever meet. Ultra helpful when needed yet invisible mostly so you can get on and enjoy what they have so meticulously created. I won't go on about how well the apartment is appointed or how wonderful the region is, the spectacular scenery and magnificent bush walks etc., I'll leave that for you to discover. Our only complaint was that we weren't told how wonderful it would be... we would have booked for much longer. Put simply, one of the highlights of our month long stay in the USA. Thank you Tom and Susan and Happy New Year to you both. Cheers from Australia

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed over Columbus Day weekend. Exactly as described. Very comfortable accomodations for our family of five. Well appointed kitchen, sparkling clean. The view from the front windows of Jiminy Peak were outstanding. Owners, Tom and Susan, greeted us shortly after our arrival.

Hope to return again soon.

Summer stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Red apartment for about ten days in July and loved it. My husband uses a wheelchair and walker to get around and he managed just fine. We particularly loved the sun room with its spectacular view of the peaks across the way. We were even treated to a rainbow!

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!
