Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house!

We have been renting houses in Mount Snow for the past few years and so far this has been our favorite. It is in a great location - close to the mountain and to a bunch of great restaurants! The owners were very quick to respond to any questions we had and also gave us great restaurant recommendations. The house was homey and very clean. I would definitely recommend to a friend or family looking for a wonderful, stress free Mount Snow vacation.

First class mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

Philip and Nora's home was everything and more than we expected. They did an excellent job in communicating all of the little details that we needed to know during our stay. The house was extremely clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Towels, bedding, etc were very nice quality which was really nice when you go in/out of the outdoor hot tub! Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare of our meals. There are sign with instructions everywhere so we knew things like recycling procedures, hot tub procedures, etc.. There are many brochures around the house with local activities, restaurants, places of interest which really helped.

Location, location, location! We were a ten minute drive from Mt Snow ski resort with short drives to grocery stores and best of all....a mile drive to Sticky Buns bakery! We visited every morning to get the freshly baked cinnamon buns just out of the oven!!

Philip and Nora were very responsive and communicated very well from the start of our booking to mailing our deposit the day after we departed. Unfortunately some of our activities had to be canceled due uncooperative weather. We planned a Christmas Eve sleigh ride at Adams Farm but because of the rain we had to cancel. Oh well!

As far as restaurants, we only ate out one evening and it was well worth it! Since we saved money on the lack of "snow related" activities, we decided to splurge on a dinner at the Deerhill Inn (about ten min drive just off Rt 100). Great atmosphere and the food was incredibly good. The staff was attentive and made our family Christmas Eve dinner one we keep talking about. It is a little pricey (entree around low - $30's). Great wine selection too! Like beef brisket? The most tender we have ever eaten. Desserts were a killer!

Five of us drove fifteen hours from Chicago for our stay and it was well worth it! Our only complaint....we had to drive fifteen hours back home!

Amazing winter vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a vacation home through homeaway.com. The homeowners were reliable and helpful throughout the entire process. The home was exactly as described, everything we wanted and much more. It was very comfortable and such a close drive to Mount Snow. It made for an ideal weekend of skiing and snowboarding the mountain! We couldn't have asked for a better host/house for our weekend getaway. Will definitely be looking to visit this home again next year!

Good place for a weekend away with the family

  • 4 of 5

This property worked well for or party of 9, including two teens and a four year old. We also had three dogs which Phil and Nora were nice enough to accommodate. The hot tub under the stars was nice as well as the numerous bathrooms.

I'm not sure the ad mentions that one bedroom is a loft, which my in laws used without issue, but light sleepers might have problems if others are up later.

All in all a good time.

Idyllic Weekend Gettaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and immaculate, modern but cozy. With the fireplace (there's plenty of firewood in the basement), the hot tub, and the foosball/ping pong table in the basement, you might not even care to venture out to all the recreational activities in the area. We did manage to swing by one of the nearby ski parks to take the gondola to the top of the mountain for some fall leaf-peeking, a lovely and surreal thing to do if you're there in autumn. We also managed to get in a bit of motorcycling, which happens to be fantastic in and around the West Dover area.

Philip was incredibly accommodating and friendly, communicative but never imposing. He made finding the house, getting into it, and getting out of it a breeze, all of which are so important when you're on a tight weekend vacation. Highly recommended.

Comfortable and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend here with 3 other friends and loved the house. It's clean, well maintained and very cozy. The hot tub is a great bonus too! With only 4 of us there was more than enough room and the kitchen has everything you could need/want to prepare meals. It's only a minute by car to the main road where you can find great diners, restaurants and bars, and although it wasn't ski season yet we were only a short distance from Mt.Snow where we were able to take a cable car up the mountain and admire the views. It's a beautiful area and the location of the house gives you easy access to everything. The owners were very helpful, friendly and prompt in their responses. I'd definitely come back again and recommend this place to anyone!
