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 completely 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 completely maintained by their management. No need to shovel snow! The large, private outdoor deck has expansive mountain views. 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 on a 'Shabby Chic' luxurious sofa or relax on the leather armchair & ottoman, and choose from our selection of DVDs and VCRs that you can view on the flat screen TV, (1 of 2). Read a book from the mini-library or play one of our many board games. Children, and children at heart, can grab the sleds from our storage shed and sleigh down the "perfect hill" right out the back door! Cook a full meal with a fully equipped kitchen. We even have a fondue pot! Go online with our fast, free Wi-Fi. 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 Jiminy Peak

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 vacations 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.

We had a great time at this comfortable place with a loft area and lots of natural sun situated 5 mins from Jiminy Peak. Well-documented instructions on how to use everything in the house as well as great things to see in the area was provided.

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.

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.
