Overview

Waitsfield House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to THE SNOWS NEST, a year-round vacation home in Vermont's beautiful Green Mountains. We just had a terrific ski season in the Valley, but an equally terrific summer is not far behind. We love skiing but mmm, Vermont in the summer is amazing! Your base for weddings, graduations, cultural activities or athletic competitions or just a fresh air getaway.

Want to hit your reset button? REALLY need that R&R? Want to play hard, eat well, and fall asleep at night with that wonderful tired feeling that only time in the out-of-doors can bring you? Want to relax and be silly and have fun and leave all the day in, day out monotony behind, if only for a short while? Give yourself a break and refresh, recharge, reconnect, relax, regress! Tell the adult in you to take a hike! (really ...)

Some rentals are pretty bare bones. We plan for you to enjoy every minute of your stay in Vermont with all sorts of comforts and amusements. We have EVERYTHING you want. Three good-sized bedrooms sleep 6, 1.5 baths, air conditioning, large rear deck with with a full retractable awning, covered front porch, fully furnished, 3.5 acres with diurnal pond (good for frogs, not for swimming). Off beautiful Common Road east of town. Views to the west. Please look at the pictures, as they say it all, it's very livable. Our home is designed for YEAR ROUND fun and relaxation; for family and social gatherings.

Open floor plan, warm tones, radiant heat floors, gas-burning fireplace. Appliances include gas stove, d/w, microwave, full w/d. Air conditioning.

This house has been continually upgraded every year since we bought in 2008. Even if you've been before, chances are you'll find something new. We can't stop feathering our nest.

If you MUST work while on vacation, we offer a PC with DSL Internet and workspace and WIFI for your own computer. Just don't work too hard.

YOUR CHILDREN AND FLEA-FREE, WELL BEHAVED PETS ARE WELCOME.

We strongly discourage smoking, but if you must, outdoors ONLY, and dispose of butts appropriately.

About SM Reilly

The kittens, Cosmo and Moxie, and I welcome you. Animals rule! We love well-behaved, flea-free pets with the exception of some dog breeds (sorry, our insurance requires it). We realize there are good dogs and bad dogs out there of every breed, but the following breeds are generally acknowledged to carry the greatest risk ...pit bulls, akitas, rottweilers, chow chows, presa canarios, or any wolf/dog combination. Mixed breeds fine (who doesn't love a mutt).

SM Reilly purchased this house in 2008

Why SM Reilly chose Waitsfield

No better place on the planet than the State of Vermont! Sure, great skiing, but great all year round too with the wonderful outdoors yours for hiking, biking, fishing, tennis/golf, birdwatching, we just can't list it all ... get away from the daily grind, Vermont will help you hit your reset button!

What makes this house unique

The entire house is planned to be a walk in/walk out operation - just pack your suitcase, and stop at the grocery store, everything else you need is here already. It is clean, and furnished specifically for family and social gatherings. Enjoy the unspoiled and varied scenery for dog walking, biking, or just kick back on the front or back decks and watch the wildlife. Waitsfield can cover all your shopping needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall rating of overall rental experience is a 10 out of a possible 10. [Why?] It is a lovely, comfortable home. It was a comfort for our tired bodies after skiing!



We would love a couple of a chairs on the decks - ones that can stay out in the snow.



It's a great location nd you have lovely neighbors [the neighbors have horses who like carrots from strangers].



Overall value for the money spent 10 out of 10 where 10 is "excellent."

Wonderful Long Weekend at Snowsnest

  • 5 of 5

What a cozy, well-appointed, place to stay while visiting the Mad River Valley, VT! We gathered here for a small family reunion and 40th birthday party for our son. The open floor plan of the living area was just perfect for family and guests. The gas fireplace and radiant heat floors kept us warm and relaxed as we watched the snow falling outside. The kitchen was great for cooking and we made good use of all the supplies that the owners had so graciously left in place for our use.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Snowsnest. The three year old enjoyed the reading nook, books for her age group, the bunk beds, and toys in her room. The adults were very comfortable and warm in their bedrooms. Next time we'll bring our dog. There is even an outside doghouse for her use. This place has everything!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 loved this home in the hills of Waitsfield. We even had a nice snowfall while we stayed. The radiant floors are the best! Everything was clean and in good shape. Even had spare dog bed for our 4 legged family member Stewart who loved the house and the yard as well. Would love to come back!

Lovely house in perfect Vermont setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long Columbus Day weekend here. The house is beautiful, comfortable, clean, and well appointed with all the modern comforts of home. The location is pristine and views of Mad River Valley and Sugarbush are spectacular. The owner is very attentive and really wants vacationers to enjoy their time without worrying about anything. Looking forward to returning!
