Betsy and I lived in and loved the Mount Snow Valley and its people for 10 years prior to our move south as a pastoral family. We knew this would be the location of our future retirement home where our grown family and all our friends could comfortably gather to renew relationships and build new found community. As the sign says in the living room, 'Friends are the family you find along the way.' We hope you'll discover such warmth in this place.

Betsy and I are Massachusetts natives (Amherst & Braintree respectively). We met at college at the University of Massachusetts, setting our eyes on the future. Married one week after graduating, I then continued with my graduate degree in the area of Pastoral Ministry within a progressive denomination. Betsy's field has been greenhouse management. We take a rather pragmatic view of life, raising 3 kids to love the simple pleasures and to revel in the out of doors.It is one of the reasons our hearts leaped when we discovered the property only 11 miles from where we once lived. We knew it was the right place for our future home. And in 2010, construction got underway to fulfill a very big dream that we've long shared.

Ted & Betsy Newcomb purchased this house in 1993

As previously noted, we are outdoor people who love the environment and revel in the unique beauty of all the changing seasons. Each has a character uniquely its own. The wetland behind the house is an active ecosystem that enthralls visitors. Between activity in the pond, the interplay of color and shadows, floral beauty, a very dark night sky where the Milky Way band leaps out at you, and easy access to the two incredible mountains and their amenities just around the corner along with all the lakes and trails for outdoor enthusiasts, this is about as good as it gets in our mind's eye!

When preparing to build, we fell in love with a special design. It melded Betsy's dream of a Country Farm House with a lovely front porch with my vision of a hybrid Colonial. While we employed skilled framers and other trades people do what they do best, we (along with family and so many friends) have labored countless hours to finish interior and exterior to our liking. It has taken two years to get to this point often working just 1-1/2 days per week save for vacation time, but slowly the dream has been realized. Now we are pleased to share it with you!

FANTASTIC LOCATION - GREAT GOLF WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time here. Ted is a really nice guy and was easy to work with when getting everything ready to head up there. The house had plenty of room for our group. The pool table / bar area was great the first rainy night. The second night, we had a great time taking in the crazy Vermont sky at the fire pit. It was a little early for golf, but the Mt. Snow course was open and we had a great time there as well. Highly recommended - great place to stay in the area.

PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY IN THE MOUNT SNOW AREA

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at this home and definitely won't be our last. From the moment you open the door, the home welcomes you in. It is roomy and spacious, modern but not cold. It is very comfortable and clean as well. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of your culinary needs and the soapstone is a nice local touch. The two story windows in the great room offer beautiful Vermont views (sunrise is gorgeous). The fireplace is warm on those chilly winter nights. The washer and dryer come in handy for families travelling with little ones. The study is a nice bright room if you want to do some reading, and also contains many brochures on local daytrip spots (loved Adams Farm!). The beds are cozy and comfy after a long day skiing. The bathrooms are extremely clean and well placed throughout the home so a group won't ever feel like they are waiting in line. There is a pool table for the kids and adults to use and a big screen tv with surround sound for those who want to just kick back and relax. All in all, there is plenty to do for all generations of a family. We love this spot and plan to return again. My highest recommendations (and I am pretty picky with where I stay). I thank the owners for keeping their property so nice and being so lovely and accommodating.

GREAT VACATION, GORGEOUS HOME

  • 5 of 5
Thank you to Ted and Betsy! We had an amazing time at the Newcomb home. Even with the detailed description provided, when we arrived, the home was even more breathtaking than described. Beautiful mountain home with all of the amenities needed. I am a neat freak and the cleanliness of the home was fantastic. We felt right at home and had a wonderful vacation. I would absolutely recommend this home...just don't take the days we stay as we'll be returning each year forward :). Ted couldn't have been a better host...we got lost and he spent at least 15 minutes with us on the phone and then followed up with a call later on our first night ensuring everything met our expectations. Tranquil setting, a homey atmosphere and minutes to the slope...What could be better! Thanks Ted and Betsy!

GORGEOUS NEWLY-BULT PROPERTY, VERY COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5
This is a beautiful house in a great location, close to Mt Snow, Jamaica State Park, Harriman Reservoir and Wilmington with its restaurants. It is even better than its pictures suggest. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished, and clearly responsive to the tastes rather than being designed as a rental. The well-stocked kitchen is one obvious example. The expansive deck boasts views of a big pond. With beds for 13 people, it is great for a large family gathering or a group of friends. We were a group of six older guys out for a few days of hiking and paddling, and the house was a perfect base for us. My only complaint is the owner's insistence on using a rather expensive non-refundable insurance policy to protect against damage rather than a normal security deposit, without regard to the age and level of responsibility of the group staying there. That he did not provide towels (not even hand towels) was also a minor irritation. But all in all, I recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: We definitely appreciate our guests but subscribe to the HomeAway insurance policy as a standard procedure. We also send our guideline booklet to each renter which clearly outlines our provision of bedding (sheets/blankets/pillowcases) but that we DO NOT supply towels, suggesting guests bring their own. There have been no other concerns registered among our guests on this issue since we began rentals in Jan. 2013.

STUNNING

  • 5 of 5
The pictures for this property do not do it justice. When we arrived at this property and opened the front door, we were more than impressed. We then made our way to the deck and was amazed by the view. The property is clearly taken care of and in pristine condition. The house offers a lot of space for everyone spread out if desired. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and kept in communication. I would absolutely recommend this house to someone who is looking to stay in the area.

Four season, outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Just 3 miles north of Mount Snow's north entrance (no traffic). Stratton is only 11 miles NW. Very fine restaurants (Dover Forge) and pubs (Valley View Saloon) in West Dover & Wilmington await your discovery. Somerset Reservoir (the largest body of impounded water within VT) is nearby...a total wilderness experience on 11 mile lake. Kayakers...don't miss! Challenging golf courses with grand vistas at Haystack, Mount Snow and Stratton. Cross Country Ski/Snowshoe at Timber Creek or create your own trails in our adjacent National Forest. Appalachian Trail just 5 miles away. Foliage in the region is unparallelled generally from the final week of September through the 2nd week of October. Relax, Re-create, Reflect!

Notes:
A couple of moose ambled through the Beaver Pond in late Sept. 2012. You'll see a picture on our site to prove it. We've also been entertained by the beaver population in the pond. And a local black bear and cub have made their way along the back side of the house on their way to the pond. Can you say tranquility? To sit out back on the deck some 15' above the yard and feel the peace...priceless! Hike in nearby woods. Behold the expanse of the Milky Way in the dark Night Sky. Have ease of access to Mount Snow from the 'traffic lite' north side just 3 miles away. Enjoy the best that Vermont woodlands has to offer. For on site massage, contract with Marci Himelson with Mount Snow Massage (802) 464-5602. For on site sitters, contract with Deerfield Valley Sitters (802) 490-4729.
