About This Listing
Our spacious house is great for multi-family trips or larger groups, in a secluded location near Mount Snow. Kid-friendly and good for adults too. Enjoy the large deck and garden through the spring, summer, and fall!
Enjoy the run of a five bedroom house on an acre of land near the Mount Snow resort in southern Vermont.
The house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac among trees, overlooking a bend in the Deerfield river. It's a ten-minute drive to the slopes of Mount Snow, and a further half-hour to Stratton.
It sleeps ten in two kings, one queen, and two double twin bedrooms. (There's a sofabed, too, for an extra guest.)
So it's great for large groups or multi-family use.
The house is child-friendly with a cot and high chair as well of stacks of toys and other distractions (the two living areas each have TV, DVD players, and video games).
Our cleaners prep the house with fresh linens before every visit and tidy up afterwards, so you can rest assured it's ready for you. We also provide a 24/7 number you can use to reach a local property manager in case of any emergencies.
The main kitchen (remodeled in 2007) has a microwave, large fridge/freezer, gas oven and grill, coffee maker, waffle iron, and enough utensils to satisfy a master chef. We even have recipe books in the library should you feel adventurous.
The house is just minutes from a well-stocked grocery/deli that opens 8am-8pm every day of the year, so you don't need to go far to hunt down dinner!
The dining table ordinarily seats up to eight but can be extended to seat 10. We have tableware for 18 people as well as loads of glasses and mugs. And yes, there is a dishwasher!
There's lots to do in nearby Wilmington and West Dover...
Year-round: Lots of dining, shopping, and sightseeing choices.
Winter: Skiing and boarding at Mount Snow; snowmobiles all around.
Summer: Several courses within a few minutes' drive, and the house is just minutes from watersports and the beach (!) at Lake Raponda. There's fishing, too, but get a permit.
For Mount Snow ski pass info and equipment rental rates, see MountSnow-(website hidden) (airbnb strips out links!). The mountain is just 10 minutes drive up Route 100.
We've owned this house since 2004 and we still use it regularly ourselves. Friends and family love visiting.
Come see for yourself!
No smoking in the house. Other than that, please just treat the house as if it were your own.
Small dogs are OK.
We can be flexible on check-in and check-out times - just ask.
Keys are held in a lockbox and we'll give directions after the booking is completed.
On departure, we ask you to leave all trash inside the garage for later collection.
If you need any recommendations for dining or other activities, please ask.
Spent the weekend here with my friends and really enjoyed the place! It was very cozy and the 10 of us fit comfortably! Colin was very responsive with emails and easy to talk to.
Colin was a very accommodating and responsive host. We emailed him around midnight when the hot tub wasn't warming up and he quickly responded to help us troubleshoot. The house was great and fit 10 people very comfortably and was only a 15 minute drive to the base of Mt Snow
Fabulous house, well equipped and spacious. Colin is very responsive and we enjoyed our stay immensely.
Great house for 2 families (8 people). Convenient location 10 minutes from Mt Snow. Cute towns (Dover, Wilmington) very nearby. Responsive host. Kitchen stocked with plenty of supplies. Books and games around the house. Clean. Hot tub was a nice kicker. Fantastic snow in VT this year!
Great house for a ski trip! We had 10 people sleep comfortably in the house for 4 days. It was clean when we arrived with linens and towels provided. It sits on a very secluded spot of land and has a beautiful deck and hot tub. It's an easy 10 mins down route 100 to Mount Snow. Would definitely rent again!
This is the 3rd time my friends and I are staying at this house. We love it!
We usually go during October to catch the Oktoberfest and pretty leaves.
The house is huge and very practical. There are 2 very big rooms and a full bathroom upstairs, 2 rooms and a bathroom downstairs on the first floor and a massive living/bedroom/bathroom downstairs. Every room has its independent heating system which is really important. The kitchen is fully stacked with all the essentials and there is a big dining table so you can cook a big meal and enjoy a night in.The fireplace and the hot tub are the most popular features among my friends.If you want to be unsocial, the house has wifi as well. It comes in handy as the cell reception in the area is spotty.
The house is in Wilmington which is a cute little town and is pretty close to Bennington (gotta check out the village chocolate shoppe and the crazy russian girls bakery) and West Dover (good food at 1846 tavern) and Mount Snow. If you have kids (or animal lovers) in the group, check out the Adams Farm. If you like your wine, try the Honora Vineyards.
The owner is pretty laid back and he keeps the house well maintained and clean. In summary, we love this house and every trip we had there.
About the Host, Colin
I'm a Scotsman who calls NYC home. I've lived here since the mid-90s although I had a four-year stint in Hong Kong. I used to work for a big bank but I quit a few years ago.
I like soccer (both playing and watching), snowboarding, going to the theater, and good music (e.g. Jesus & Mary Chain, Sigur Ros, Franz Ferdinand, St Etienne). I'm also an Apple fanboy - I've even published an app.
