Beautiful home and a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our two night stay at the red farmhouse was perfect. The house was extremely clean, well appointed with everything you would need, and such a great location. Only a few minutes away from Sugarbush (slightly closer to Mt. Ellen) and Mad River Glen and less than a 5 minute drive away from the town of Waitsfield, which has plenty of restaurants and a convenient grocery store. In prior years we've stayed at a variety of places just a few minutes away from here but this is going to be our #1 option going forward. The kitchen was recently re-done and we did quite a bit of cooking for our group. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. The owner was great and always responsive. As long as he keeps renting I will keep coming back, only next time hopefully for much longer! Thanks again!!!

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a FANTASTC place to stay, especially if you have a large group of folks. The house itself is very well maintained, with plenty of living and sleeping space. Beds were comfortable in all 5 bedrooms, and the owner provides plenty of towels and linens for everyone. There are 2 full baths, one on each floor, and as is typical for an older home it helps to stagger showers, but this wasn't a problem for us. We stayed here last week of December 2014 with our family (6 people) and another family (3 people) and did not feel cramped at all. Dining area seats 10 easily and 12 without much problem; owner provides several folding chairs in the laundry room as needed for additional guests. Laundry room also doubles as an entry way/boot room, to avoid tracking snow and mud into the house, and it held 8 sets of ski boot and 8 regular boots with room to spare. There is room for at least 3 cars in the driveway, we never tried to get a 4th car in but it might be possible.

The kitchen is very well equipped (pots, pans, other cooking essentials, full serving for 12+), and the owner also has the kitchen stocked with many staples that you are free to use and replenish (sugar, oil, vinegar, spices, coffee, etc.); this was critical for us as we arrived on Christmas eve and couldn't do a lot of shopping before all the stores closed, and of course we forgot a few key items.

The living room has comfortable couches and chairs, and the owner has a number of board games and puzzles for younger kids in the event the snow isn't falling, as well as wifi and cable TV. There is a wood stove for those that know how to use it, and a stereo (though must everyone had their own ipod and headphones, not sure we ever even tried it).

The location is great for skiers: on route 17 a few miles east of Mad River Glen, close to Sugarbush as well (though we only skied MRG while we were there), and <10 minutes from Waitsfield.

The owner is friendly and very easy to work with. I would absolutely stay here again.

Fabulous Ski House for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! We had everything we needed for our ski holiday. We love to cook and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped. There were ample sheets, blankets and pillows. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept well and skied hard every day. We really enjoyed relaxing in the living room with a lovely fire in the wood stove and plenty of space for playing board games and watching tv. As a large family it was so convenient to have a washer and dryer in the house. The mudroom was crucial to taking care of and storing our ski gear each night. It seems everything was thought of. We had a great vacation and look forward to coming back to the Red Ski House next winter.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been staying here in summer and winter for many years. We love the area any time of year, the valley really doesn't have an off season. In the summer the hiking and biking is the best and in the winter you cannot beat Sugarbush. The house is minutes from the mountain and minutes from great restaurants and taverns. The house is spotless, well appointed and very comfortable. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for New England charm and great outdoor activities year round.

Great in the off season

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here in June for an extended family get together. There were 2 grandparents, 4 parents and 4 kids - 10 of us in total. The house is located in a very convenient location. We are looking forward to a winter get away with skiing!
