Enjoy the peaceful beauty of the Berkshires at Oak 'n Spruce Resort. Situated amid 320 acres at the foot of Beartown State Forest, the resort offers a par-three executive golf course, two tennis courts, a freshwater stream packed with trout, two indoor heated pools, an Olympic-sized outdoor pool, as well as a full health club, basketball, horseshoes, pool table, ping pong, and even an indoor movie theater!
The nearby town of Stockbridge is home to the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Berkshire Theater Festival, and historic homes. Summer offers ballet, Tanglewood, (the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra), and theater.
In winter, enjoy cross-country skiing on-site, or for downhill skiing, visit Butternut Basin, Brodie Mountain, and Jiminy Peak. You will fall in love with the gentle beauty of this New England, and all that the area has to offer.
DOGS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!!! There are rules, and a fee. You must bring proof of up date innoculations and there is a $75 per pet fee. A bargain when you consider how much boarding costs, and how tough it is on some dogs. Size does not matter so bring your pets and enjoy your vacation!Oak 'n Spruce Resort

The resort has really "spruced" itself up the last couple of years. There are new trees and flower beds, that add a really nice touch to the grounds. They also have altered their registration entrance dramatically - giving it a more modern, "spiffy", look. I actually liked the way it used to be - it was smaller and felt "comfy" to me. However the new, larger, entrance and registration area are definitely more modern, and there is considerably more space inside.
They also have been adding new "Presidential" Units. These are larger, brighter buildings than the newer buildings that they had been adding previously. The Presidential units are still 2 bedroom, with exactly the same floorplan as the "newer units" - but have more room and more closets. However, the units in the newer buildings that they were erecting before the presidentials, are quite different from the older units there. They are much more modern, with everything on 1 level, which is more convenient. They are brighter, with an open, flowing floorplan, and better use of space than the older units, which have a totally different design.

I own many time shares, not all Gold Crown. This is definitely a simple resort, but in a great area that I love to go to before school begins. The air is cool and clean at night and Tanglewood and the small theaters in the area are wonderful. How much time do I spend in the unit? Not much! Though I do enjoy the full kitchen for when I stop and shop at the organic and fresh markets, espeically Guido's!
So I was lucky to see one last year for sale on redweek.com for the week that I have been exchanging for--for more than ten years--when I can get it. I met and cultivated a friend there ten or more years ago when I ended up traveling single, when they had the restaurant on the premisis (it was a great place to meet people--but not used often enough, I guess for the expense.)
Two years ago, I took my Mom up for two weeks and we had a ball, too. They allow dogs now, so herl ittle bishon frissee could join us, too. Mom was happy staying in for the evenings as I ran to Tanglewood and plays and there were many antique stores, plays, and music during the day as well--as well as small towns to investigate with wonderful restaurants to have lunch. The local airports are close for friends who might fly in, and there is so much to do!
I have exchanged for two weeks this year, and now own one week at the same time, which I will have to place in RCI if I do not rent it out! Now, as an owner, I do not have to worry about not being able to enjoy the Berkshires in August.

Have stayed here several times and am now an owner. The resort is located in an exceptional are and during the summer there are so many things to do for all ages. The units are well equipt, in excellent condition and there are many amenities. We have found staff to be helpful and responsive (immediate replacement of a light bulb). We often have friends and family with us and they share our views of the resort.

I was vacationing in the area in June 2007 and decided to visit this resort to see what it was like.
This resort is still selling units. They are expanding and adding more units.
The resort is on both sides of a road with the offices and a few newer units on one side.
Some of the newer units on the "office side" are similar to units usually found in Florida and are quite fancy. We saw a 2-BR on this side of the road which was quite lovely.
Most of the units were on the other side of the road and were more of a "middle class" style. There was a recreation center and a pool with the units being tiered around it on a hillside. They were also building new units on this side of the road.
We saw a 1-BR and a 2-BR on this side. They were a reasonable size but not overly large. The units we visited were obviously the "Show Units" and the decorations were new and up- to-date. The 1-BR units were on one floor but the 2-BR units were on two floors. They all had small balconies.
The clubhouse was quite extensive and offered two indoor pools, but hadn't been updated recently and was looking a little worn.
Since the styles of the units varied greatly, it would be difficult knowing which style unit you were exchanging into. We were there in mid-June and there were children everywhere. The closer to the outdoor pool you were, the noisier it was.
If you are looking for solitude this probably isn't the resort to choose unless you go off- season. But, if you have children and want a place with a lot of activities, this resort would be appropriate.
I am giving it a 3-Star based on appearances only.

Super Relaxing resort. Have gone twice and had a great time both visits. During the fall the foliage can not be beat, just driving around the rural streets is enjoyable. There is also apple picking, shopping, and hiking nearby.
My other visit was during the winter (Feb 05), it was very quiet during the week with only a few people using the indoor pool. There was construction going on but that just shows me they are continuing to update and improve. Did not effect my visit at all.
Plenty to do in the area and the Sweet Basil Grill is a Must go for excellent Italian in a quaint New England style house. The resort looked to have plenty to do during the summer for familys with onsite miniture golf, par 3 executive golf cource, playground and plenty of nature trails. The units themselves were fine, full kitchen, spacious rooms. There was not a VCR but we brought a portable DVD player with us. You can also rent one. Jacuzzi in the master bedroom is great.. You should try this resort if you want a nice peaceful getaway to the heart of New England country. A true vacation from life.
