BEAUTIFUL HOME IN BERKSHIRES

  • 5 of 5
Two families with two young kids had a wonderful weekend at jiminy peak. The house is very nice and very well appointed. It was the perfect amount of space for us, well laid out and very clean and nicely furnished. The deck is great too and the surroundings are beautiful. The hosts were easy to work with; Greg was very kind and sent us recommendations of kid friendly places. We had a great time!

FABULOUS HOME WITH STUNNING VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
Finally, I’m writing this review that I’ve been planning to do for a few months:

We are a group of 8 women who decided to go to the Berkshires in October for our annual get together. What a beautiful surprise awaited us on the mountainside!

The house is just beautiful, set high on the hillside, with breathtaking views all around! The pictures don’t do it justice. As I walked inside, I couldn't believe the spaciousness and welcoming atmosphere! There is an emotional warmth about the home that is so inviting. It had exactly the kind of appearance I had searched for on the Internet when looking for our vacation spot.

As you walk inside on the main floor, the walls of glass make you feel like you’re outside! The open plan of the kitchen, dining and living room, complete with cathedral ceiling and wood-burning fireplace, was wonderful for our group to cook, chat and of course have cocktails. The wrap around deck off the dining and living room was perfect for getting some sun and fresh air. The upstairs master bedroom and bath is beautiful as were the downstairs bedrooms and bath. The beds and linens were so comfortable!

Everywhere were wonderful touches of family life, along with everything we needed for our stay. The house book listed everything you needed and all equipment worked flawlessly.

The resort was fun also! We went to their Spooky Night, which was at the top of the mountain. First you go through a scary house. Then they take you up the ski lift at night, which is beautiful with all the lights from the resorts and houses around, to a scary hayride at the top. What fun! There are restaurants around the resort and a country store, which made it convenient.

Greg, you were a pleasure to deal with. I wanted to thank you again for all of your help, and all the work you put into organizing the Concierge Info found at your home. We had an amazing time, and your Jiminy home was just PERFECT!

NOT YOUR TYPICAL RENTAL!!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home!!!! Our family of five stayed with another family of five. The accommodations were perfect- tons of space, great layout, everything you could need. It did not feel like a rental at all. The owners spared no expense furnishing and decorating their home. It has a wonderfully warm and cozy feel and we were so happy to spend time there when we weren't out and about. Williamstown has so much to offer, we loved exploring the area. You won't be disappointed!

PERFECT ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed here with good friends and their family of 5. This home is beautiful and decorated so nicely. The beds are super comfortable and there is plenty of room for all! The kitchen is filled with everything you need to prepare a yummy dinner with friends. The house is also very well maintained and very clean. The living area which is quite large and wide-open was perfect for all of the adults and kids to hang out in together. The family room also has spectacular views of the mountain and the outside deck will be such a welcome retreat come spring/summer. This home is also perfectly located near several popular attractions. Whether you are attending your child's graduation at Williams College or in the area to see a concert at Tanglewood...this home would make your getaway complete! Spacious, bright, tastetful and clean are just a few words that come to mind when I think of our stay at this mountain home!!

TRANQUIL, SUNNY AND SUBLIME!

  • 5 of 5
Particularly enjoyed hanging out on the sofas in the sunny great room with its high ceilings and views out over the mountain. Spacious, clean, very tastefully furnished. Good access to the mountain and trails at the end of the street. Plenty of beds, bathrooms, etc., kitchen has all of the necessities. We were there in ski season but I imagine that it must be great in the warmer weather to leave the doors to the deck open and enjoy the mountain breeze. Definitely coming back. Thank you!

Property is located in the Black Diamond Road section of Mountainside. It’s height above the base area gives it peace and quiet, as well as fantastic views that are not found in the lower Hemlock Village section of Mountainside. The elevation and exposure to the mountain also ensure a fresh breeze. It takes about five minutes to walk down to the base area. Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort is a fun place to be year-round. Non-winter activities include: Mountain Biking trails, Aerial ropes course & zip lines, Bungee Trampolines, Alpine Slide, Mountain Coaster, Bungee Swing, Climbing Wall, Chairlift access to summit, hiking trails, pools, tennis, dining, shops.

The house is 14 miles from Williamstown and a great “base camp” for Williams College activities. Very close to all Berkshire things to do: Tanglewood (19mi), Canyon Ranch (19mi), Cranwell (20mi), Great Barrington (32mi), and Edith Wharton’s The Mount (21mi). Also close to many public golf courses (only 14 miles to Taconic Golf Club, the #1 public course in Massachusetts), great rivers for fly fishing and white water rafting, amazing hiking trails, and miles of road and rail trails for biking. Wine tasting, hot air ballooning, rowing/sculling, fresh farm produce, amazing restaurants, cultural and recreation activities, and endless antiques/shops are all nearby. Pittsfield is 12 miles away for groceries and essentials. Or you can read a book and never leave!
