We travelled to Williamstown to attend out son's graduation from Williams College. Finding accommodations for 10 people proved to be challenging, but we were very lucky to find this beautiful home. Surrounded by gorgeous views, the house is warm and inviting and so well appointed: it was everything that was advertised and more. Greg was wonderful to deal with and made sure our stay was worry free. We enjoyed our stay immensely wished we could have stayed longer and will return again (maybe during ski season!) Thanks Greg
I would highly recommend anyone looking for a family vacation in the Berkshires to stay here. The home was exceptionally well-appointed and laid out perfectly for our extended family. Not only were the adults comfortable, but so were the kids. There were beautiful views, restaurants and activities on site, and the home was conveniently located. To top off the great experience, the home owner was very attentive and made our stay a wonderful family getaway.
We were a group of 8 adults getting together for a girls get-away weekend, and picked the Berkshires due to proximity between New York and Boston. We had a great time! The house was bright, clean, open and spacious. Even with 8 of us, we never felt we were on top of one another. The house has well-appointed, with plenty of towels, linens and every appliance you could possibly want in the kitchen! Greg was super responsive and helpful, and the house book gave us some great tips of things to do in the area. I would highly recommend this property!
We were two families with 3 kids staying at the house. It is specious, well equipped, very clean and comfortable.
Best stay, so far, in Jiminy Peak. We will come back here again.
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!
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!
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!
