Wonderful home in quiet, beautiful surroundings.

To return after a day’s skiing, gaze across a mountain vista, light the fire and cozy in for a home cooked evening meal knowing that you can do it all again tomorrow – bliss.
This beautiful, immaculate house has a very homely feel to it. The large windows afford fantastic views across the mountains and there is a wonderful feeling of space throughout. The view of the night sky from the outdoor firepit was fantastically clear and sledding down the hill from here was fast and fun.
Direct access to the inside through the two car garage is a definite plus, likewise having dry, warm gear for the next day, courtesy of the drying room. The kitchen is very well equipped with a large array of cooking utensils plus an extensive range of spices on offer, so you don’t end up having to buy them. We found plenty of novel and interesting games to play in the evenings sat around the fire, including the classics like scrabble.
The owners have set this house up with great attention to detail - for instance, the digital outside temperature gauge allowed us each morning to get a good idea of the likely conditions on the resort slopes, as they are at roughly the same elevation. The twenty minute ride to the lifts offers fantastic views, and the choice of skiing is excellent. If you don’t know the area, head for Killington for more challenging runs, and Okemo for long, rolling blues, where access via Jackson Gore is the more civilised approach.
Overall, we could find nothing much to fault about this home nestled in the hills - it is everything the description implies. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable location at a very reasonable price, but still within easy reach of some great skiing and restaurants. And if
we had to recommend one, it would be the restaurant at the Simon Pearce Pottery just outside Woodstock.
