My wife and I stayed at this property with our two children (ages 8 and 10) and another couple and their two children (ages 10 and 12). We had a wonderful time / experience and found the home to be spacious and comfortable.
Everything is exactly as advertised. The pictures, while fine, do not convey the full charm and warmth of the house. My wife and I slept well in the upstairs bedroom (comfy bed, slept like a baby) while the kids were in a room with bunk-beds. The other couple was in the downstairs room while their kids slept on the 2nd floor, in an additional bedroom. As John points out in his description, it was great to have sheets and towels at our disposal.
When staying in another persons home, I am always sensitive to the kitchen and the living area. Specifically, will it have the pots, pans and other utensils required for a good breakfast before skiing and will there be a comfy spot to sit apres-ski? Happy to report a resounding yes for both.
My secret aspiration is to open a diner, so I am a bit finicky about have the right gear. Thankfully, i was not disappointed. Founds all the pots, pans, etc, that were need for a combination of omelette, bacon, and excellent egg sandwiches for breakfast before we headed out to Killington (under 15 minutes away).
At the end of the day, we stopped at the General Store (three minutes from the house) to buy two six-packs of Long Trail (purchased "Stand Out" and "Sick Day", to commemorate an awesome ski day. My buddy and I sat by the fire, drinking our beers and relishing the perfect day, while the kids played elsewhere. Could have easily spent the night in that exact spot, had it not before for dinner plans at another location.
All in all, it was a great place and made for a great weekend. Touching on a few of the 'tips for writing reviews' section:
- As detailed above, the listing description was accurate regarding location, layout, amenities, etc.
- The property was very clean and well maintained. You can tell the owners pour a lot of love and attention into this house.
- Did the owner provide good customer service? John couldn't have been nicer. He was more than responsive to any question I had, even provided guidance on which runs my kids should take (it was their first time at Killington).
- Would I recommend this property to a friend on relative. Definitely yes.
