My family and I came to the Whitcomb Summit Retreat during early August of 2020 to escape the every day stress brought on by this wild year. We used to go camping at the Mohawk Trail State Forest down the road when we were all kids, but as our parents got older, staying at Whitcomb Summit was a more comfortable way to enjoy the area. Our stay this year was perfect. It was incredibly quiet and peaceful. The sunrises and cool blue evenings over looking the mountains were sights to behold. The rooms were immaculate. The beds were comfortable. My family and I had been coming up to Whitcomb Summit on and off for about 30 years and this is the best stay we've had there. It was incredibly difficult to leave and return home after our 2 nights. The owners were very communicative, accommodating, and knowledgable of the area. We hope to get back there as soon as we can. (Maybe even for the fall foliage if we're lucky!)

We stayed here at the end of October when the foliage had just ended. The view of the mountains was still amazing and we wished we still had the foliage. Our room actually had two rooms with two double beds, a TV, fridge/freezer, microwave, coat room, two desks, two nice chairs facing out at the mountain, and the most amazing stone tiled shower! It was a bit chilly and very windy and rainy the next day, but there were also deck chairs to be able to sit out on the porch. The office is a bit small, but we had the most amazing stay!

Found this Gem last minute! Great Views. Not a quiet area and room was not cleaned daily, however, now that I know this, I would stay again. Most attractions are in North Adams which isn’t too far to travel. It looks as if, at one time, there was a restaurant at site, but all worn down. Mountains and views galore and an awesome sunrise and sunset! Rooms certainly need updating.

Owners had my first review pulled because they didn’t like it. Presumably they claimed it couldn’t be proved I stayed there. Well I did and it wasn’t very good. The room are basically like sheds. There were flies everywhere (given the low temperatures - there must be a hygiene issue nearby for them to be surviving in such numbers) They got our room wrong. We told them we’d emailed them in February our choice but got back a rather sullen ‘our email don’t go back that far’ in response. To top it off, when we just wanted to get away the next morning - not only was there no hot water ... there was no water AT ALL. You couldn’t even flush the loo. This place has all the charm of a kids den in the woods made out of old pallets. With flies. Let’s see what excuse they approach Tripadvisor with now to get this review pulled rather than address the issues in how they describe the place online (and what they charge) versus the reality of what you’re going to get if you daft enough (like us) to stay here. I’ve added a picture I took whilst staying at this place so you (& Tripadvisor) can be sure I actually stayed there. It’s a panorama showing the view from upstairs and you can see the parking lot and picnic tables out front of the place.

I have to say the view from the hotel is simply breath taking. Sadly our stay at this hotel was the complete opposite. Booked the room back in February, exchanged emails with the owner and our rom was confirmed. When we arrived we were given a different room, I reminded Theresa of the exchange of emails and was told that her emails didn’t go back that far. In fairness she did change our room to a room on the top floor but not as big. Nice enough room with a duvet without a cover ( same as next door) and flies. Woke the next morning to no water. We could not flush the toilet or at that point grab a shower. Theresa and her husband did come to the property eventually to remedy the situation however by this time we were just pleased that we had only booked one night. As I have said great views but I would keep driving
