Our family vacation home for many years. But now our adult children and their families are scattered across the USA and unable to come often. We enjoy sharing our house with others.

Phyllis Beveridge purchased this house in 1984

A great place to just hang out, walk to lake, use of canoe. Nice local walking and access to bike-able trails. Or use as a base for hiking, skiing, golfing and visiting the valley as well as day trips to nearby small towns, museums and the outlet stores in Manchester. Or for driving to enjoy the beauty of the area, typical architecture and covered bridges.

The charm of an A-frame, great kitchen. Walk to lake. Be sure to buy some of the locally made maple syrup from the Wheeler farm roadside stand - the best maple syrup in the world!

We had a terrific time staying at this beautiful house near Lake Raponda! We absolutely loved the big fireplace. Rooms were very comfortable, with plenty of room for all 10 of us. Easy and beautiful ride around the lake to get to Mount Snow, about 15 min away. Would love to come back and experience this house in the summer months. Thank you Phyllis for sharing your home with us.

Perfect

This is the perfect house for a big family. The three bedrooms downstairs were the perfect size to sleep six comfortably. It was nice to have the two bedrooms upstairs also. Plenty of room for everyone. The living area was fantastic with its large fireplace in the center of the room. Plenty of seating for all to enjoy. One thing to keep in mind when booking this A-frame is the spiral staircase. It was very difficult to get a suitcase up the stairs. Also if you are a large person you might have a difficult time maneuvering these stairs.. Very tight squeeze for an average size person. All in all though this house is perfect.

Not very impressed with the house.

The house was very outdated except for the kitchen. There were mouse traps and pest control devices in every room. The spiral staircase was so narrow and the steps were so narrow that none of us - including our kids - could go up or down without problems.
Owner's Response: Sorry this renter was disappointed in the house. The pictures on the site are accurate – an eclectic mix of furniture of various vintages and a classic 1960's A-frame -- with a new kitchen. And yes the stairs are narrow as seen on site … something I point out in our response to inquiries. Once you get the knack they are not difficult but are not appropriate for someone with mobility issues. We gutted the ground floor and redid all the walls a few years ago. Since then we have been proactive to prevent mice from settling into our house for the winter - a common problem in Vermont. Mousetraps (a total of 5) and plug-in sonar mouse deterrents. Someone checks the traps weekly. This seems to be working. We have no evidence of mice living in our house

I rented this house along with 7 of my friends over President's Day weekend. The house was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The kitchen was newly renovated and had all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook a feast. Mount Snow was only a 15 minute drive away. We had a great time and can't wait to return next year!

Highly Recommend! Already planning on coming back!

Rented for 2 nights and quickly decided to stay a third. The house is beautifully maintained and has just the right amount of cozy VT feel. Very clean, wonderful new kitchen and two decks. Such an easy ride to Mt Snow. The fireplace is GREAT! Table is large enough so that even if you have the max amount of people at the house you can all sit down for a nice meal together. Owner is very nice and so easy to contact and answers all questions. Great for a ski trip but I would have been happy just snow shoeing around the property too. We also went snowmobiling which was great.

Already hoping to come back during the summer. You could tell that the deck would be perfect and the surrounding area is beautiful. Highly recommend.
