    Came for the Lift Maintenance Seminar. The property was overall great, no major complaints. The two things that were less than ideal was a lot of the dishes were not clean, I'm guessing the previous guest put them away that way. And the hot tub water was low, we tried to fill it but the hose spigot was turned off.

    Other than that we had a great stay!

    Great location and condo. Very spacious and clean. Short walk to the slopes for ski in/out. Communication with owner was excellent.

  • Lovely family getaway in the Berkshires


    We stayed here in August of 2023 with a family group of 7 and it was an excellent set up. The great room had plenty of space for games, meals and TV watching and the downstairs den was a perfect video game space for the young adults. We really liked being at Jiminy Peak and did some hiking and the ropes course. I’m sure it would be ideal during ski season. We also explored the Berkshires nature (Mt. Greylock) and culture (Mass Museum of Contemporary Art, Tanglewood). It was a bit of a drive to the grocery store but there’s a nice convenience store with snacks and drinks at the base of Jiminy Peak. The owners were very thoughtful in providing all the information we needed and a nice gift basket on arrival. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Great house for family and friends right by the slopes of Jiminy Peak.


    This was a friends and family get-away for a milestone birthday--multiple families, multiple kids (including a baby). What we loved:- You can walk to the slopes, which you can also see as you sit in the hot tub on the deck and watch the night-skiers--perfection! - There is everything you need for babies / toddlers--a beautiful, spacious nook next to the master bedroom with a bed, a night-light, a sound-machine (that is so effective that we could party loudly downstairs without disturbing the baby), and an audio baby-monitor. The kitchen has baby cups, plates, utensils. There are even gates for stairs / play spaces, if you're into that. - Hosts are incredibly responsive and follow-up to make sure you're well taken care of. - The house is comfortable--plenty of rooms, all spaced out so no one is on top of anyone--there's a beautiful open area for social gatherings and meals. The only thing that was meh: Parking spots limited (we could fit 3-4 cars if we parked horizontally--though it was a pain to get in an out). Technically only two spaces and the rest have to park down at the mountain (a 15-20' walk or a quick 3 minute drive).
