My family and I arrived at Jiminy Peak for a 3 night/4 day ski mini-vacation. We originally checked into a one bedroom suite with kitchenette at the Country Inn, which is slopeside. We were disappointed at the size of the space in the one bedroom suite - the kitchenette was small with a mini-fridge, two burner stove, and small dishwasher. The living room had a pull out queen size bed, which when converted to a bed took up a majority of the living room. And the walls and ceiling were paper thin. After trying to put the kids down around 9 pm, there was a family above us that was just checking in. After repeated calls to the front desk, we were told security couldn't do anything until quiet hours started at 10 pm. So we had to listen to them bang around for an hour before security would do anything.

We checked out of the Inn the following morning and into a 2 bedroom with loft in the Country Village, a short walk to the Jiminy Cricket slope and lift. Huge step up. Full kitchen, two bathes, washer/dryer (makes it easy to minimize packing), and only a short walk to the Jiminy Cricket lift.

Overall, I felt the resort was a little dated and could use a facelift, but it kept with the rustic New England ski resort theme. The heated outdoor pool, while fun, was not the advertised 80 degrees (probably closer to 65). The outdoor hot tub was a little warmer, but not scalding hot, which was nice for the kids to be able to participate. The grounds were clean, JJ's Lodge and Patio had ample seating, even over the weekend.

Room Tip: Avoid the Country Inn (main onsite hotel) - the rooms are small and the walls are thin. The laundry is coin operated and not centrally located on every floor. The Country Village (townhome style units) was nicely furnished, had washer/dryer in the unit, and plenty of space to spread out.

We stayed at Country Village at Jiminy Peak in a 2 bedroom unit (2 couples) as part of an Extra Vacation through RCI, Country Village has two and three bedroom units in one story buildings in 8 separate areas--about 50 units.

Our week turned out fairly well after a very bad start. After reading the reviews, we called and asked for an updated, renovated unit, After checking in (which was a pleasure--pleasant staff, no time share hype or pressure) we were told we were in unit #85. This unit had to be one of the worst we have ever seen--the entrance had unpainted plywood ramps for handicapped (which we did not request). The ramps, door, etc looked ugly and uninviting. In the unit, there was old furniture, all the lamp shades were in bad shape--they had what looked like burn marks and holes, but it did have 3 flat screen TVs. In the closet of the master bedroom was bathroom equipment for the handicapped which took up half the space of the closet.

We called and complained and indicated that we wanted another unit. We talked to and met Kevin, the Time Share Coordinator, who told us that there had been a screw up and that was not the unit we were supposed to have but there was nothing he could do that day--we would have change units the next day. After a short time that decision was changed and we moved to unit #35 which was more up to date, new paint, more attractive. This unit had 2 TVs--not flat screen, but adequte; better furniture and even had a washer/dryer. There are two somewhat small bedrooms--one with a king sized bed, the other with 2 twin beds. There is only one bathroom for 4 adults--we made due, but it is obvious that it would be better to have 2 bathrooms for 4 adults in these 2 bedroom units (we learned that only 3 bedroom units have 2 bathrooms).

The unit had a full well stocked kitchen and a dishwasher. There is a wood patio is the rear with a lovely view and in #35 there was added privacy by having trees on both sides of the patio.

There is an outdoor pool and children's pool available to the Country Village units. We were also able to use the indoor hot tub and spa in the main building--the Country Inn. The Inn also has free wifi in the lobby--there is no wifi in the units.

The are different outdoor activities at Jiminy Peak for additional charges. There is also a Country Store that has some basic items--milk, wines, beer, bread, some packaged goods--not really a supermarket. To get food items for a weeks stay, you should go to a supermarket in Pittsfield, the closest large city. In addition, there are no gas stations around the resort, so tank up before coming here.

It is difficult to rate this place-our stay started poorly--Unit 85 was bad--it should be gutted and redone. I am surprised that Country Village would put anyone in that unit. However, we did enjoy our stay the rest of the week once we moved to another unit. We love this area in the Berkshires and it is easy to go north to Williamstown and Vermont; Mount Greylock is close by and the great towns of Lenox and Stockbridge are about 20 miles south.

In the end I thought about rating our stay very good because the problems were resolved, but I had such a bad reaction to unit #85 that I am giving the restort an average rating.

We booked at the last moment and were pleasantly surprised after the negative comments on trip advisor. There were four of us, adults, in a large condo unit not in the main hotel area. It was very quiet, had two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a large living room with a fold out couch and a full size kitchen with a washing machine and dryer. There is a John Harvard restaurant for food and a country store for odds and ends. The main reason to stay here is for fun outside adventure.
To mention a few, there is a ski lift and alpine side activity right on property. (You have to pay for the rides, not included for staying on the property). We were going to Richmond, Pittsfield, and Williamstown so we didn't do the rides. Jiminy Peak isn't near anything really, you will have a 20 minute ride to anything else. If you have children that like outside adventure this is a good weekend get away resort.

this is a perfect place to spend some days with your kids on the slopes. There is sufficient and friendly and dining- easy for us all to eat apres ski. Kids are skiing in a safe environment and really enjoyed it with their friends. They had enough freedom as well as safety - and had the time of their lives.

Room Tip: This is a family oriented ski resort- places have bedrooms & kitchenettes for convenience and cosiness.

We stayed at the Country Village over Martin Luther King weekend in 2013. I was concerned that the unit would be old, but it was lovely. It had been updated and even had a small jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. There was plenty of space in the foyer and the large living room for our skiing gear. The two bedrooms were comfortable - one with two twins and the other with a king bed.The staff was very friendly. The only inconvenience is that the units are a bit of a walk from the slopes. There was a new shuttle service, but it was $8 each way, so we opted to drive our car to the main parking area each day. We were in Village 3, which less than a 5 minute walk from the country store and the country inn, where John Hancock's restaurant is. We did opt to walk when we weren't carrying our ski gear. We would definitely stay here again.
