This Fiddlehead Condominium unit is a homey 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, 1st floor condo accommodates up to 6 adults comfortably.
The condo is complete with all the bells and whistles including a fireplace (wood included), 42 inch TV, DVD player, cable TV and wireless Internet connection. It has a fully equipped kitchen including a Bosch dishwasher, Krups cappuccino maker, and a washing machine and dryer.
The bedrooms are outfitted with one queen bed in the master, a twin-over-twin bunk with a trundle bed in the 2nd bedroom, and a queen pull out couch in the living room. The beds include all linens needed for a comfortable stay.
Also enjoy the game/recreation room equipped with a 15 ft shuffle board table, ping pong table and foosball table just steps away. Located next to the game room are 2 saunas and a 10 person indoor hot tub which may be needed after a good day on the mountain.
I have been heading up to VT since I was a kid and have rode all the mountains from J Peak to Mount Snow. I must say this place has it all for true fans of the up north. It has the best amenities like unlimited firewood (which is right outside the door), high end appliances (i like to cook), killer game rooms and sauna to unwind or entertain, huge TV and cable for chillin after a long day of riding. Real strong flow of water in the showers which is important to me.
When I hear others talking about their favorite mountain getting dumped on I usually add 30 to 50% to the amount that Sugarbush gets. It's just a little further up north than the rest of the popular mountains in VT so when there is a foot at say Stratton...there is more like 2 or 3 feet at Sugarbush, so you can't get better conditions anywhere!
I've also rented this place in the summer and enjoyed the cold nights and hot days in the sun. There is a killer pool and huge yard and mountain to hike or bike or fish or just pick up one of the guides the owners laid out to see what else is available. I dig the quad rentals!
The bar scene is choice there as well. Micro brewery's, high end restaurants, and then live music and cheap drink for when we want to tear up the town. The locals are all cool and it's no more than 10 min drive to any of these places from the condo.
This is exactly what youre looking for if you're a gamer. You walk across the parkling lot 1st thing in the morning and strap on your board or your skis and glide down to the lifts @ Mt Ellen. You dont even need to drive! From there you can take the 15minute cross mountain quad lift to Lincoln Peak. Its all access to some of the best trails I've ever been on in the NE. After experiencing last winters great snowfalls at both Sugarbush and the southern VT resorts, it like comparing apples to oranges. Sugarbush blew them away.
The condo complex has nice amenties, games for kids, ping pong, etc., plus hot tub, sauna, and plenty of firewood available. 2 baths is always key for a group, and the bedrooms and closets are big enough to keep your gear and live/sleep comfortably. Flat screen TV in living room.
location right on Mt Ellen (again you can ski down in 1 minute to Mt Ellen lifts right from condo parking lot)
Its about 1 minute drive to Mt Ellen parking lot
Its about 4 minute drive to Lincoln Peak (or use all mountain pass and take super quad lift from Mt Ellen to Lincoln peak.) It's a pretty cool lift ride across the mountain. Don't be suprised if you see wildlife on this ride.
If youre a family and want to get away for a weekend, this is a good place to do it with kids. the slopes arent super busy like down in southern VT. Its plenty comfortable for that, and very close to both mountains.
If youre an enthusiast like me, and dont care about bells and whistles, then it is also great because youre right next to mtns...plus the bells and whistles that come with the place are icing on the cake.
This well equipped condo was just perfect for our Fall weekend getaway. My wife and I were looking for place to spend a Fall weekend away from the rat race of Fairfield County CT and there couldn't have been a better place to go his time of year. A Friend recommended this site and we booked a weekend.
Upon arrival you could tell the property was well maintained an inviting. The Condo is very clean and comfortable. Although it was just two people, two couples or a large family (2+5) would have plenty of space to enjoy a comfortable visit.
The area was in peak Fall condition so the scenery was amazing. The condo is at the base of the ski area so looking down in to the valley was a spectacle.
I'm sure this would be great if your'e a skier the mountain is right out the door
My family of 5 rented last season and everything was great. The condo very clean, the location was perfect, the beds were comfortable and skiing was unmatched in the east. The kitchen had truly all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay and it was a plus to have a washing machine and dryer in the condo. The TV with the Xbox and DVD player was perfect for off the mountain entertainment. I recommend this property to all.
Ski out access to Mt Ellen (aka Sugarbush North). The ski out trail is located just steps from the Fiddlehead front door. From there, either go to the top of Mount Ellen, ride on the 9 minute traversing lift to Lincoln Peak (Sugarbush South) or pick up the shuttle for a quick ride to Sugarbush South base lodge.
