Artsy Jiminy Peak Rental

Bedrooms 3
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 BR, 2 BA, sleeps 8, swimming pool, tennis, private deck w/ awning, weber grill

Beautiful Berkshire home with unique 'boutique hotel' style modern furnishings. This fabulous multi-level 3 bedroom house is equipped with everything you'd possibly need. Just pack your clothing!

We are conveniently located less than 2 miles from the slopes of Jiminy Peak and our property is a part of, and completely maintained by, Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort. No need to shovel snow!

Warm yourself in front of the fireplace on the beautiful, spacious leather sectional or double chaise lounge.

Enjoy the wonderful entertainment offerings in the loft. Sink into the luxurious 'Shabby Chic' sofa or relax on the leather armchair & ottoman, and watch cable TV or choose from our selection of DVDs and VCRs. Read a book from the mini-library, or play one of our many board games. Go on line with fast, free Wi-Fi.

The large, private deck has expansive mountain views. Children, and children at heart, can grab the sleds from our storage shed and sleigh down the "perfect hill" right off the deck!

Cook a full meal with a fully equipped kitchen. We even have a fondue pot, for the perfect meal after a day on the slopes.

We think you'll find the house a wonderful base to enjoy all that the Berkshires has to offer, not only during ski season, but all year long!

About Dale Freitas

I am a NYC public school teacher and my husband is an international correspondent for Brazilian media. 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. When we travel we prefer to stay in rental homes in lieu of the traditional hotel. We draw from the positive home stay experiences we've had, from Paris to a fishing village in Brazil, in order to offer our guests the same welcoming, at home feeling we so very much enjoyed.

Dale Freitas purchased this condo in 2002

Why Dale Freitas chose Hancock

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. Though we love the beach, remembering the anxiety from the constant traffic, driving to and from our past summer spot in the Hamptons, counter-acted the tranquility we were looking for near the ocean. We decided instead to buy this home in the Berkshire mountains, where we have found the tranquility we were looking for. There is absolutely no traffic to contend with, not on our drives up and down the Taconic State Parkway, and not in any of our travels from one town in the Berkshires to the other. And of course there's the fact that the Berkshires is a cultural haven, filled with everything from world class dance at Jacob's Pillow to New York Times reviewed theater, from the quaint Norman Rockwell museum to MASS MOCA, the largest contemporary art museum in the world.

We love the peace and quiet and all that the Berkshires has to offer, and are sure you will to.

What makes this condo unique

For ski lovers, the proximity of the house to the Jiminy Peak slopes, just 2 miles down the road, gets you to the mountain in no time.

But the 2 mile distance is just enough to afford you and your family space, privacy and a wonderfully peaceful environment.

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.

Comfy and homey, perfect for a group gathering

  • 5 of 5

Just as stated in the listing, the house is all it claims to be. We were a group of 7 girl-friends and had plenty of room to sleep, cook, and just hang out. It was very cold while we were there so plans had to be adapted and we were grateful for the coziness of the condo. Sleeping arrangements were all very comfortable. We didn't ski, but took advantage of the little gym and hot tub at Jiminy Peak, which is just minutes away. A few "downtown" areas are nearby in multiple directions, so the location is very versatile. The owner was easily reachable, attentive, and quick to respond. Highly recommend.

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. Though Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, is mainly known for it's skiing, the Berkshires has all-season activities and is also 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.
