I grew up in Albany, NY and have lived here all my life. I went to high school in Schenectady, NY and to the Empire State College for a four year degree. I have been an avid skier at Mad River Glen for years and have skied the West and Europe on several occasions.
Evelyn Pitt purchased this chalet in 1964
IMy husband and I skied Mad River Glen and loved it (we still do). My two sons grew up skiing there every weekend and holiday week all wiinter. My son (Jeffrey) still uses it most of the winter with his family. We decided to build a duplex with another couple; they were not quite ready, so we built in a single family Swiss Chalet in 1964. It was our builders first house. This property was part of land owned by the builder's family (Richard Brothers); they also sold land to the Green Mountain Valley School and several other lots on our 'hill'. We have always loved it and keep upgrading it.
The views from the living room decided us. We could see Sugarbush, Sugarbush North and Mad River Glen all from our front windows!!! That sold us on the property.
Our stay at this lake house was very enjoyable. We loved the space: very large deck and a fantastiac patio. The house was very clean and is almost brand new; everything is in good working order. Two bathrooms realy helps with 9 persons. The house sleeps 9 very easily and has a super kitchen with eating space. We made use of the dock even though we did not have a boat. The directions were great and we had no problems finding the house. The lake is beautiful and so large; it goes on and on. We look forward to returning soon; possibly in the fall with the foliage.
