About Dale Freitas

I am a NYC public school teacher and my husband is an international correspondent. We have been married for 35 years and have spent that time living in both Brazil and the United States and love to travel all over the globe. We stay in rental homes, instead of the traditional hotel. We've found that having a true "home" base, gives us a much stronger sense of the culture of that particular destination.

Dale Freitas purchased this condo in 2002

Why Dale Freitas chose Berkshires

My husband and I bought this house in 2002. After 9/11 and a subsequent trip to Paris,(where we rented a stunning, modern apartment), we decided that we wanted to buy a weekend home, a special retreat, closer to home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Dale,

I want to thank you for the lovely stay at your condo. When we were about 10 miles away I remembered that we didn't sign the guest book as requested. Sorry about that--so here's an electronic version:

What a great place to stay! This is definitely not your average ski condo. It's more like a mini art gallery with high quality furnishings and interesting photographs, prints and objects d'art. Perfect location, stylish, clean and well stocked. We loved it. We had a great time skiing at Jiminy but also enjoyed the hiking trails at Mountain Meadows in nearby Williamstown. Williamstown has great shopping, too.

Thanks for everything.

Nice, clean condo in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an enjoyable stay at this property which is conveniently located to all points in the Berkshires. Home was clean, well-furnished and well organized. Sleeping arrangements are comfortable and quiet. The home possesses an unusual amount of artistic details for a rental, so I'd be wary of recommending it when young children are in tow. However, great for adults. We hope to return in the future.

Beautiful ski season rental

  • 5 of 5

This upcoming ski season will be the third season in a row that we have rented this condo from Thanksgiving to March. It is very comfortable, fully equipped and well maintained. The owners are always available. It is 2 or 3 minutes from Jiminy Peak and the area is well maintained by Jiminy. John Harvards and Powderhounds are two great restaurants at the mountain. Our family would highly recommend this property any time of the year.

Fantastic Ski Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for the month of February and loved it. Perfect for our family of 4 with plenty of room . The condo is very well maintained and fully equipped. The owners could not have been more helpful with any questions we had regarding how to operate electronics, etc in the home. The kids loved the sledding hill right behind the house and spent many hours after skiing riding the hill. The house is within minutes of Jiminy Peak and is close to many great restaurants. Highly Recommend.

Highly Recommend this Condo Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend here with our two teenage daughters. The condo was very comfortable, spacious, beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed (including board games which we hadn't played in years together!). We enjoyed playing tennis (which is on site) and took a great hike up in Mt. Greylock, which is nearby. We had a delicious meal at a restaurant in Williamstown, too. It was too quick and trip but hope to be back. I highly recommend this rental.

GREAT RENTAL! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for the last two years, from mid-December to mid-March. It is a great rental! The house is just one mile from the Jiminy Peak mountain, and there is an amazing hill in the backyard for sledding.

The inside layout is perfect. With 3 bedrooms, a loft, a pull-out couch in the master, and two trundle beds...there is a lot of room.

Great fireplace, loft area, nice furnishings...it was perfect for us. We really enjoyed our ski seasons up there.

This year we are moving to Vermont so we are not renting again for the 09-10 season. We will miss this place! We looked at many rentals in Jiminy Peak, and this one is by far the best. Rent it now!!!

The Berkshires has been referred to as the new Hamptons. The important difference is that you won't have to battle the traffic to or from the house. The Berkshires is a year-round cultural center. We are close to Williamstown with it's beautiful college setting and the Clarke Art Institute. Drive 5 minutes further to North Adams where Mass Moca (Museum of Contemporary Art) sits in a beautifully restored 19th century mill. Drive up to Manchester, Vt. for outlet shopping. Head in the opposite direction and visit Lenox, summer home of the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood, or Stockbridge with it's Norman Rockwell Museum. And of course, Jiminy Peak, which offers not only some of the best skiing available in the New England area but a variety of year-round activities to keep the entire family entertained. You'll find something for everyone in the wonderful Berkshires.
