Convenient location, great space for families
This was our second time staying at Vacation Village, for an annual family ski weekend at Jiminy Peak. Units are set up as separate one-bedroom suites; you can book either an “A” unit or a “B” unit. A units are larger than B units, in terms of square footage and kitchen (e.g., A unit has a full kitchen, B unit is more of a “kitchenette”). All units have gas fireplaces, tvs in living area (with dvd player) and bedroom, large (almost ridiculously so) bathrooms, pull-out sofabed in living area, full kitchen w/utensils, dishware and limited cookware in large unit (smaller has a glorified hot plate instead of a stove), small decks, community washer and dryer room available on each floor. There are in-bedroom jacuzzi tubs in the A units. You can also book adjoining A and B units, which makes it easy for families/friends traveling together to have room to spread out. That way, too, adults can be in one unit and kids in the other which is helpful for movietime, naptimes or early bedtimes. Value is decent, as we paid about $500 for the two units for a two-night weekend stay ($125/night per unit). Pros: Across the street from Jiminy Peak (though oddly, there’s no shuttle and no ski conditions info provided at the lobby desk about JP… though conditions are provided about other nearby ski areas). Room to spread out. Large central building with an indoor pool, outdoor hot tub, locker rooms, game room, comfortable lobby area with couches and fireplace. Less-than-great: Units are somewhat under-maintained. In our unit, none of the interior doors actually latched shut (problematic when bathroom doors flew open) and on the other unit the exterior door to the deck would not latch shut. No daily housekeeping services provided, though they are available for a fee. Good to know: If your unit is in a building a ways from the central building, you’ll be driving the kids to the pool. There are no elevators in the buildings so be prepared to do some schlepping of your gear. You’ll be required to bag your trash and put it in the outdoor bin, same with recyclables. You’ll also be required to strip beds and round up used towels, etc. upon departure. At check-in, your credit card will be charged a $100 security deposit, which gets refunded ostensibly when they inspect the unit after your departure.
Tips for Families
Room Tip: The lower the building number, the farther away from the main building (where the pool is).
