About Greg & Marie Quill

Our family likes to ski and snowboard, hike, go boating, kayaking, fishing. Southern Vermont and the Deerfield Valley offers all that and more.

Greg & Marie Quill purchased this house in 2008

Why Greg & Marie Quill chose West Dover

Mt. Snow offers fantastic skiing and snowboarding. We also wanted to be close by to take care of our home.

What makes this house unique

We love how close our home is to the mountain and how much room there is for everyone to spread out or gather around to play games or enjoy a nice dinner. Our home has nice, comfortable furnishings and decor, but everyone can feel relaxed and right at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying in your beautiful home! The setting is gorgeous. We had lots of snow which made for a perfect ski vacation. We will leave with some wonderful memories. What a great way to bring in the New Year.

Great retreat for couples

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Balsam Cottage for our couples (4) retreat. The kitchen was well stocked, and house has a great layout for game playing, cooking, hanging out, and relaxing in general. The long kitchen table was perfect and we enjoyed our meals together. We were fortunate to have nice weather so we enjoyed the deck and the outdoor fireplace as well. The owners were a pleasure to work with and they keep their home neat, up-to-date, and well provisioned for a collection of guests spanning many ages. With 8 adults, everyone found plenty to do with the hot-tub, pool table, dart board, and many of the board games on hand. I would definitely recommend this location for anyone looking for a great getaway.

Great house in peaceful environment

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time weekend in West Dover. We stayed at this property with 8 adults and I wouldn't recommend more than 9 if nobody wants to sleep on a couch. It took a while to establish the first contact to the owners, but everything worked perfectly from that point on. The communication was friendly adn effcient. The house description was accurate and there was no hidden cleaning fee. Towels and linens are included. The house itself offers everything you need: a well equipped kitchen, hot tub, pool table, 2 TVs, fireplace, grill, ... I would certainly recommend this place.

Great house - and nice quiet spot!

  • 5 of 5
This really is a great house. It is large, well-furnished, and well-stocked. The hot tub is great and so are all the games to play - pool, foosball, etc.

I stayed here with my 3 young adult children and a couple of friends for a week - everyone loved it. Plenty to do in the surrounding area as well.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 9 of my friends rented the house for Tough Mudder which took place at Mount Snow. The house is conveniently located about a half mile from Mount Snow which made getting to and from the mountain incredibly easy. The 9 of us slept comfortably and the hot tub hit the spot after a long day of running/climbing at Tough Mudder. The house had a great back deck for grilling and also had some nice space in the back yard for lawn games. Would highly recommend this house for anyone planning to run Tough Mudder or wanting to head up to Mount Snow for a ski weekend.

Great home base ski house for large families!

  • 5 of 5
The home was very clean and well organized. We were there to celebrate a special birthday and the accomodations were perfect. The kids (and adults) loved the game room and hot tub. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We were there with 4 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Would definitely rent again!
