Our house sits peacefully in semi-seclusion with views in the heart of the Green Mountains. It has 5 bedrooms, 2 baths. Two minutes to skiing, five to town! This place has everything you need for a good time: Outdoor Hot Tub, fully and tastefully furnished, comfortable, down-covered beds, HDTV/VCRs/DVDs, stereo, laundry, Wi-Fi, close to town, private. The beautiful new kitchen is fully equipped for those who like to cook. It features granite counters, new appliances, and a center island which makes a wonderful social space with stools around it. Staples, cleaning supplies, spices, condiments, linens, etc. are all included. All you need to bring is your toothbrush and skis.
Pets are permitted with deposit.
Recent Remodeling: Several years ago we completed a major remodeling project which included more than doubling the size of the kitchen, putting in all new top-of-the-line appliances, new cabinets with granite countertops, a large center island with stools around it to sit and socialize with the cook, tiled floors, all tastefully decorated. This has dramatically changed the flow and feeling of the house, opening everything up and making it much more accommodating for large groups. Also, we have added a screened-in back porch and another deck that goes the entire East side of the house from front to back, connecting the back porch to the front deck. The hot tub is now sequestered at the back of this side deck next to the porch.
SKIING DETAILS:: This house is a stone's throw from the entrance to Sugarbush North, Mt. Ellen. It is about ten minutes to South. Also, going the other direction you are about 5 minutes to Mad River Glen, one of the most unique ski areas anywhere. For the children, we have sleds available that you can use right on the property or elsewhere. Snowshoeing and Nordic skiing is conveniently available, also: The Catamount trail is a quarter mile away, and other trails go up back of the house through the woods.
We are a couple nearing retirement who like to travel and have a large family of children and grandchildren plus friends we like to visit. Neither one of us ski much so renting our home seemed like a natural way to pay for our travels and help with our finances. We have been renting for some years now, and have had great luck with guests who have treated our property well and been very appreciative to rent a well-cared for home.

Where we are is a natural for ski rentals. German Flats Road, which is the road we turn out onto when leaving Hiddenwood, connects Sugarbush North to Sugarbush South, and Mad River Glen is only a few minutes away in the other direction. We're only two miles to town and approximately a half mile away from a popular restuarant. That plus the fact that we've put a lot of love and care in fixing up our home makes our place very desirable for family groups and adult renters.
We sit in the middle of a two-acre lot that has a large front yard, a small pond, and is surrounded by forest. You are in a secluded glen, even though our neighbors are only a short walk through the trees.
COZY COMFORTABLE and JUST LIKE HOME
We have rented many homes from Homeaway and VRBO and have never been in one that was so well equipped as this one. The owners literally left their home for us as if we were family. There was a plentiful supply of towels, linens, paper and cleaning products; an amazing array of kitchen appliances and cooking materials; lots of comfortable places to sit; enough bedrooms for our whole family; and even a playroom filled with toys and games for children of all ages. The hot tub was great. The location was great. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this rental and look forward to spending time here again, especially if there is tons of SNOW!!!
The house sits in privacy on two wooded acres with views and a hot tub. Sugarbush and Mad River Glen ski areas are minutes away. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails abound within easy walking distance. Nightlife, fine and casual dining, shopping, movie theater, live music, and spas all thrive in the Mad River Valley. Tennis, health club, swimming at the Bridges or Sugarbush Sports Center. This is a winter-only rental, with occasional exceptions.
Other Activities: kayaking, hiking mountain trails
