Massachusetts mountain resorts offer spas, sports, & fun all year round

The Berkshires region of western Massachusetts is well-known and loved for summer music and theater, and its craggy peaks and valleys also are home to mountain resorts that make a splendid hideaway for a romantic getaway or a family vacation in all seasons.

Ski areas like Jiminy Peak, Wachusett, and Berkshire East welcome skiers and snow boarders to historic, comfortable and family-friendly peaks for snow sports. Even in winter, resort guests who are indoor-inclined will relish the joys of hot tub, sauna, exercise room, dining, and nearby galleries, shops, museums, and live music venues.

Summer and fall are rich with warm weather sports, swimming and hiking, scenic drives and lots of cultural outlets, like Tanglewood. Resorts that offer condos with multiple bedrooms are ideal for people gathering for reunions, weddings, and other big celebrations.

Mountains form a breathtaking backdrop for this relaxing resort

The beautiful, breathtaking Berkshires frame the Ponds at Foxhollow, a secluded resort on 223 acres. Of course the mountains mean great skiing, hiking, biking and just gazing – and you can do all that practically when you walk out the door of one of the resort’s 48 spacious, fireplaced condo units. But there are plenty of other activities at the resort, where a picturesque pond means relaxing canoe or rowboat trips and outdoor tennis, bocce and basketball courts mean outdoor fun for everyone. Enjoy the indoor or outdoor pools, hot tub, sauna and exercise room (or just soak in your unit’s Jacuzzi). A wine and cheese party is held every Friday in the resort’s gorgeous library and surrounding towns offer museums, concerts, arts and recreation activities.
