Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Very clean. Lots of amenities. Great location for Berkshires activities, i.e. Williamstown, Tanglewood, Mass MOCA, etc. Beautiful location among the mountains
Indoor and outdoor pool. Gym is okay. Enjoyed walking the hills around the property.

Room Tip: Nice to ask for room facing the forests.

The unit at this all-season resort is well-appointed with furnishings,, a full kitchen, and amenities such as hot coffee in the mornings and lemonade in the afternoons. It is family-friendly with a kiddie pool and playground as well as an assortment of activities suitable for young and old.

We used it as a place to eat, sleep, and relax while exploring museums and attractions in the area. It is our second return here. For skiers, it abuts Jiminy Peak. It is close to Williamstown and Pittsfield in the northern Berkshires but a bit of a drive from the southern and middle Berkshires even for food shopping and many restaurants.

Room Tip: One-bedroom units are spacious. Bring shampoo and body lotion for the bath.

We booked for two nites thru hotels.com with a dog. Upon arrival we discovered that Village knew nothing about our pet and wanted an addition $125 for two nites. The communications between hotels.com and vacation village were very poor. We canceled and left. Hoping we get our money back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff were very helpful and accomodating to our requests and needs. The room was clean, well decorated and spacious. They could do with a better frying pan and they were missing a baking sheet. They have lots of planned activites for kids. You can check out a large selection of DVDs for free. There are not any grocery stores close so be prepared to drive 20-25 minutes to go to Wal-Mart or Price Chopper. I would recommend skipping the Monday morning greet meeting. It is way TOO long and really doesn't give you good information. Just stopby by the desk in the front lobby to get your information. Driving around the Berkshires is a challenge as a lot of streets are not marked. Be sure to have a GPS. It is very close to Mt Greylock if you plan on doing any hiking.

Room Tip: Be sure to call ahead and they will try to meet your requests. Ask for a top floor corner if you can...

We rented a condo for a week and it was fantastic!! Our condo was spotless and well appointed. We've always had trouble finding accommodations in the Berkshires...many are over priced and musty. The staff were helpful and made it a point to check in with us to make sure everything was ok. Great place!! Will return many times!!

The one bedroom condo has a complete kitchen that is well supplied. The terrace is nice to have as well. Everything was clean and organized. We bought coffee filters, which were supplied. We didn't bring shampoo, and none is provided. It seems the condo resorts like to keep us guessing! It might be smart to call ahead, but I usually don't so maybe I like surprises. The laundry room on our floor has two washers and two dryers. You need to supply your own soap. The comforter on the bed is nice, but I like having an extra blanket I can drag to the couch. The fireplace is a hologram! No heat unless you have a very active imagination. Overall, this is a nice resort with everything you need. I recommend the nature trail on site. It is a nice walk trough the wooded area on the property.

Room Tip: There are multiple buildings, three of which accept pets. I think the views are nicer on the second...
