Happy New Year

Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had wonderful holidays full of love, health and happiness! I’ll be looking forward to fitting into all the pairs of pants I put away while feasting throughout the holidays, preferably sometime in 2014. J This is a good time to plan your getaways and vacations with us! Business is busy since we’ve had a couple of GREAT ski days here in the Berkshires. We always have discounted Jiminy tickets available here at the office.  Be sure to ask about them at check-in because they sold out VERY quickly last weekend. According to the forecast, it should be snowing everyday this week which should make for a quality ski and snowboard week. You can also check Jiminy’s snow report at to be sure! And last but not least, events going on this week in the Berkshires and surrounding areas are as follows:

Starts January 1
Daily until January 2, 2014
29th Annual Festival of Trees: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Travel through time at the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, MA during Festival of Trees 2013: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow and celebrate the Museum’s 110th anniversary!
