Set on a private road in the hills just north of Pittsfield, our house welcomes you. In the heart of the Northeast’s best winter-sports, it is very convenient to the Killington and Pico ski resorts. Sugarbush, Okemo, and the famous Mad River Glen are all within easy reach.
The house is a comfortable and spacious (2,000+ sq.ft) three-bedroom contemporary split into four levels. It’s a perfect place to relax and have fun whether you’re on your own or with a group. With the large living area, the dining room and the den on different levels, the house caters to large numbers of people yet still affords privacy.
The kitchen is big enough for family eat-in, and the dining room seats 10-12. The two upper levels are especially bright with high cathedral ceilings and numerous skylights. The two bedrooms on the lower middle level sleep 3 & 4 respectively and share a full bath. The master bedroom on the lower ground level sleeps 5 and has its own bathroom.
Nice views, too!
The NorthEast's Best Skiing: The house is located in south-central Vermont, with easy access to a number of world-famous ski resorts.
The most well-known (and the closest) is Killington, which probably has more snowmaking than any other resort in the world. For that you get guaranteed skiing for all abilities from early November to late April.
Another couple of miles away is Pico - an excellent family-oriented resort.
Sugarbush is about 30 miles north, and the famed Mad River Glen is only a few miles further.
To the east, Okemo is about 35 miles.
Plenty of choice!!

Outdoor activities galore:
Thank you for letting us rent your home, we had an awesome time! It was my first time skiing in 60+ degree weather! The snow actually held up better than I thought, although all trails were makeshift moguls by 2pm which became pretty tiring, but we still had a blast. It was a beautiful weekend altogether and we really enjoyed the calmness, especially the sound of the nearby brook/stream.
