This is a true ski-in / ski-out condo. The slopeside location of Mountain Watch is ideal for a family or gathering of friends. From either deck off large master bedrooms, you can see your family getting on to the Villager lift. The Stratton Village restaurants and shops are just steps away. The condo is completely furnished with all linens, towels, pots, pans, cooking supplies, VCRs and DVDs, really everything from 'soup to nuts'. It also includes an outdoor grill for the truly adventuresome, who enjoy grilling in the bitter cold. On the main level is the kitchen, dining area, and a wood burning fireplace in living room. There are two large master bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and a private bath. In the loft, there are two twin beds, a bunk bed and a third full bath. One renter had returned for the same week for 8 years and then bought a place nearby. The condo is ideal for a large family or two couples with a few children. This should be a great winter.
Skiing and Snowboarding: Stratton Mountain is a great place for having a lot of fun with your family and friends. The snowmaking is the best in the east. The ski and snowboard lessons are terrific. The terrain is well groomed. Parks are plentiful. Stratton is a wonderful place for skiing and snowboarding. A number of telemarketing skiers are also making Stratton their home and you can see snowshoers all the time.
Stratton is almost perfect. The only downside (we can think of) for expert skiers, is that it has a few difficult double black diamond bumped slopes, but not the extreme runs found at Sugarbush or out west, for example. It is a big beautiful round mountain and a great place for a vacation. And it is only 3 hours from Conn., Westchester, Boston and 4 hours from Long Island and New Jersey (plus a little more for certain locations and stops).
This 'Mountain Watch' Penthouse unit is right at the base of the Villager lift at Stratton Mountain. It is also at the corner of the village and is on the Mountain side of the Stratton Access Road. You can ski from and to the unit from multiple directions. You can walk to Stratton Village where there are restaurants, ski and snowboard shops, a great deli and small market, jewelry, home furnishing, candy, photography and spa shops. Stratton is close to Manchester for outstanding turn of the century hotels, restaurants and great shopping in upscale outlets. Horseback riding and sleigh rides are at the Sunbowl and on Rt. 30. The Stratton Sports Club has indoor tennis and a full fitness center. This is a great place for winter vacations, especially where there are children (and adults) who want to be in short walking distance of everything.
