“Great Option for small pets”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We spent Christmas week here to use as a closer location for family visiting over the holidays and it worked out well. This is the second time I've stayed through time share points and brought my small dog and it is nice to have somewhere to bring my dog along when trying to burn up time share points when you do not want to fly for a getaway. There is a nice trail to walk your dog and the dog building is on its own so you are next to people who are aware they are in the pet building. The resort is nice if you are a skier in the winter or looking to engage in all the wonderful arts that the Bershires offers in the summer. The highest caliber summer theatre I have ever encountered and I am picky! A good central location to many things but not much near the resort...it sits deep in the country in the mountains.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony that has a good view...some do, some don't.

Just returned from this resort. I had read several reviews before booking and found them to be accurate. We requested a unit close to the main lodge as we were bringing our 2 and 4 year old granddaughters and wanted to use the indoor pool.
The unit was in excellent condition and provided us everything we needed. The laundry room on each floor-free to use just bring your own detergent-was very handy. The DVD player in the main living area was a nice touch. With IPads we generally bring whatever we need but did use the DVD player for a movie one evening.
The heating unit worked exceptionally well. The walls are indeed a bit thin but to be expected in this type of unit. I brought music to play for the girls at night so they didn’t hear the noise from the halls or above us.
Internet was one thing that really didn’t work well. Although they advertise WiFi it must only work well in the lodge area. Again, not a significant problem for us as we have unlimited data on my IPad but if you are planning a working holiday you may need to inquire in advance of the options available for better service.
This resort is very close to Jiminy Peek if you are going for a ski vacation.
Pros of the resort: Friendly staff. Very well kept exercise area and indoor pool. The game room looked to be in good condition although we didn’t go into it.
Units provide everything advertised and provided a nice view of the woods. Other units have different views so if that’s important to you call in advance and request what you want.
Cons. Although the indoor pool is very nice it is just not easy to access in the winter. Having to dress up little ones in their winter gear and then walk to the pool in the very cold temperatures is just too inconvenient. This is not a complaint but rather something you might like to know if you are planning a trip in the winter with toddlers. The views from the pool are truly beautiful and you can see the skiers across the way at Jiminy Peak. No convenience store onsite. However we drove to Jiminy Peek and bought what we needed at their country store. Thankfully they had diapers too as somehow that bag didn’t make it to the car before departure!
Overall we would return here but next time in the summer. The area has many places to explore and Pittsfield is only about 15 minute drive. We had no trouble finding some nearby restaurants that were good. The fall foliage must be beautiful here as well.

Room Tip: If indoor pool is important to you ask for unit near the main lodge. Building 10 was great for proxi...

My kids and I stayed here with my boyfriend and his family over New Year's week. We had both an A and B suite which were attached and gave each group a bit of privacy while allowing togetherness.

The rooms were fairly spacious while being cozy, the bed was comfortable and I would definitely stay there again.

It was very well appointed and the kitchen had just about everything we needed, except a cookie sheet for heating up appetizers that we had brought. (We improvised and just used foil.)

The pool and clubhouse area were clean and a nice treat after skiing.

The resort is so close to Jiminy Peak that we went back for lunch during our ski days.

We vacationed for a week which included Thanksgiving day and reserved the A/B units. From check-in to check-out we had a wonderful experience at this lovely resort. We all noticed the cleanliness and well stocked units. The staff and crew are doing a spectacular job with maintaining this place. Awesome view of Jiminy Peak, at dark, during their snow making time was captivating. Our entire family enjoyed swimming in the clean pool. Appreciated the warm water and warm air temperature. I requested a tea kettle and it appeared with in moments! We had a great time and we will be back.

Room Tip: We had end units, on the first floor, and found this very quiet. We requested this ahead since we...

We spend long weekend here with fresh mountain air, hot outdoor jacuzzi, fireplace and quietness nobody can beat. Partial kitchen, we stayed in B-style unit. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we'll try to return in nearest future.

We have stayed here over Thanksgiving twice and enjoyed it each time.
The units are modern, clean and well serviced. The club house offers a gym, indoor pool, outdoor hot tub, a roaring fire, game room and free DVD movies for your room.
The location next to Jimini Peak is ideal for skiing.
The A unit offers a full kitchen with all the amenities and a large jacuzzi tub. This A unit also has the larger dining area and larger dining table. I would recommend this unit if travelling with family as it offers more "elbow" room.

Room Tip: Ask for an A unit. You may also request a unit that looks onto the woods or the mountain for the be...

The staff overall--excellent. The units good with all that u need to carry on daily routine. The fireplaces are not real (disappointment). When I called I was assured that the fireplaces are gas...not. They are electric and definitely rated ambience only. We rented a lockout unit...room w/full kitchen and room w/kitchen w/hot plate. Both units very clean and totally supplied..kitchen supplies, towels, iron and board, linens, vacuum. They were extremely clean. Issue w/ice maker was addressed within 15 mins (replaced). Didn't use pool, but fitness center was definitely adequate and clean. Location excellent. Parking excellent. We received early email from concierge regarding thanksgiving options. Definitely a plus. Txsgiving at Wheatleigh with review to follow. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If u want a mountain view make a request. Several options. Pets can be accommodated
