Overview

West Dover House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-24 in beds)

I only have a few Ski Weekends available:

Apr 10-12

Apr 17-19

With all the SNOW we have had this season I would not be surprised if Mt Snow added a few weekends on at the end of the season. They have done it in the past. That's why they always post a 'tentative' closing date.

The house is also available for weekday rentals. Check my calendar for availability.

There are 11 HD TV's through out the unit.

Including 4 in the living room, perfect for watching the NFL package or March Madness/ You can enjoy multiple shows or watch a movie on the big screen and you won't miss any games.

Ski Chalet with Scenic views of the valley and Mt Snow

The House has:

7 bedrooms (sleeps 18-24 people in beds)

5 full bathrooms

Full kitchen with all newer appliances

Billiard Room with Darts and HD Cable TV

4 HD TVs in the Living Room with Direct TV

5 other rooms with Cable and HD TV's

Large Jacuzzi that has TV and stereo

A private driveway that can accommodate 12-18 cars

Short distance to restaurants and ski resort

The house is located a 1/2 mile from the base of Mt Snow and is a 15 min drive to the center of downtown Wilmington! The house is close to Stratton, Bromley, Magic and Okemo. It is very charming and nicely decorated.-

Check the calendar for the most up to date availability.

The house is also available for weekday and week long rentals. Feel free to inquire about pricing.

Thanks!

About Bernie

I was born and raised in Chatham, NJ.

I graduated from the University of Connecticut.

I am a skier/snowboarder who likes to watch sports almost as much as I like playing them.

During the Winter I will be in the lower unit to help with any issues, take care of the hot tub, get you discounted lift tickets and help in any other way I can. If you don't need me you won't even know I'm there.

In the Summer I won't be on the premises, but will be available by phone. Most times I will have someone local to help out if necessary.

Bernie purchased this house in 2000

Why Bernie chose West Dover

Unlike a hotel where you pretty much stay in your room, the common areas of my house make the weekend as far as I'm concerned. It's great to watch sports, a movie, or play games. Great for big family gatherings or getting together with friends. I've hosted Wedding parties, Bachelor parties, Golf enthusiasts, Tough Mudders, Family reunions and friends who like to ski.

What makes this house unique

Discounted lift tickets

Close to Mt Snow (1/2 mile away)

THE perfect mountain house.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have been renting Bernie's (the owner) house for a long weekend ski-trip for 5 straight years dating back to 2011. There are so many reasons why this house is the perfect house to rent for large groups. There is ample sleeping space, multiple private 1-bed rooms and 4 or 5 rooms w/ multiple beds, a great common area connected to the kitchen w/ 4 TVs, a good number of board games, a nice game room w/ darts and pool or ping-pong. It has a true mountain house feel to it. It's only 1 mile from the house to the main lodge at Mount Snow. He keeps the house immaculately clean, provides you with all your bedding needs, provides towels...hot tub access, a couple nice decks, free wifi. The kitchen has just about all of the cooking or baking equipment you'd need. Bernie has always been attentive to any of our needs/requests. I can't say enough about how much my friends and I like this house. Bernie always takes a group picture of his renters and has their pictures posted all over the house, along with tons of cool sports memorabilia (especially if you're a Red Sox fan!). If you have a group of 10-24 people looking to rent a house near mount snow that is fun, large, well maintained and where you want truly feel like you are all staying together this is your house.

Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted to do a big get together in New England during the fall. We came from all over the country. We decided on this house because the size was a perfect fit for our large group. The house was so much more than just a place to lay our head at night.

We went hiking at nearby Mount Snow, it was only a 6 minute walk to the base lodge. Some played golf, and others played horse shoes and croquet at the house. All relaxed in the hot tub afterwards. The pictures of this house do not do it justice. We spent the first hour walking around looking at all the stuff on the walls… Amazing.

Our whole stay was great. From the flannel sheets on the comfy beds, to all the games in the backyard (the size of a football field), to the fire pit. I told the owner we had 22 people in our group and he had all the chairs circled around the fire pit for us. It was an enjoyable experience to say the least.

Bernie wasn't there, but was accommodating to all our needs, questions and phone calls. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Weekend in a Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful friends' weekend! We could not have asked for a better place. The location was perfect so close to the mountain, but still secluded enough to not feel enclosed. The owner is wonderful and very accommodating. We went up with 20, 24-25 year-olds and had a blast. The rooms are so fun and themed and everyday you will find something new and interesting to check out and read about and see. The skiing was great! The hot tub is a great addition and a must use when here. All around a great place and we would 100% come back! : )

A true vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going up to Mount Snow for the past 6 years, and I couldn't imagine going up there and not staying at Castle on Mt. We used to rent condos at the base of the mountain; however, once we experienced this house and the amazing hospitality, we immediately decided that we would never rent anywhere else again. Every year, for the past five years, we have made the trip up to Castle On Mt, bringing different crews of people with us every time. Everyone has the same reaction, and we love bringing them into this experience. As a guest in his house you don't have to worry about over loading the car with sheets, towels, or games; the house is fully stocked with everything you could imagine (including bins of candy). If you are lucky enough to get the host to do it... He cooks breakfast and dinner, it's an additional charge, but so worth it. No matter what time your group wants to get up and head over to the mountain, he is up with breakfast ready for you, so you can get a good meal in before hitting the slopes. He even gets great group rates for LIFT TICKETS at the mountain and will head out while you are eating breakfast to pick up your ski passes. We have never paid full price or waited on line to buy a ticket. Bunk will always make an appearance on the mountain, with his signature crazy hat, and will make sure your day is going well. When you get home from the mountain, relax in the hot tub and drink a couple of beers, while Bunk prepares dinner. It is a true vacation experience. No stress, no work, just fun!

This past season we made the trip twice. We rented the entire house one weekend, and brought all of our closest friends with us, to celebrate my husbands 30th birthday. We had such a blast that we booked again and brought up our families. Two completely different experiences, both amazing! We brought our 5 month old daughter, and my brother brought his 3 children (all under the age of 5). Bunk has pack n plays, highchairs, kids play tables, games, arcade games, movies, and more. The kids had a blast, and so did we. Castle on Mt is ready for any crowd, big or small, old or young, and I promise you, once you stay there you will never rent anywhere else at Mount Snow again.

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Awesome weekend at the Castle. Accommodations were perfect, food was great and the distance to the mountain can't be beat. There were so many distractions for my kids I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation. To top it all off the host taught my daughter how to turn on her snow board!

Thanks for a great time!

Vermonts finest!

  • 5 of 5

Bernie's hospitality and the friendly, cozy atmosphere of the house is simply

unmatched. In short, you can't beat this place...here's why:

The attention to detail is incredible. Look at the photos: Every room has a

theme, and the house is kept in perfect shape. More importantly, it FEELS like

you're in Vermont: It has the fireplace, the rustic wood interior, comfy beds with flannel sheets the indoor jacuzzi and the home cooked breakfast and dinners. He has an inordinate amount games throughout the house (including the original Frogger!), it's like no place my wife and I have ever

stayed at. Not sure he cooks for all the groups, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Location is awesome (it's a three minute ride to the base of the mountain), food is

ample and delicious (don't expect to lose weight upon visiting) and the host has

treated us like an old friend for the past seven years.

Five stars!
