About Phyllis Beveridge

Our family vacation home for many years. But now our adult children and their families are scattered across the USA and unable to come often. We enjoy sharing our house with others.

Phyllis Beveridge purchased this house in 1984

Why Phyllis Beveridge chose Mount Snow Area

A great place to just hang out, walk to lake, use of canoe. Nice local walking and access to bike-able trails. Or use as a base for hiking, skiing, golfing and visiting the valley as well as day trips to nearby small towns, museums and the outlet stores in Manchester. Or for driving to enjoy the beauty of the area, typical architecture and covered bridges.

What makes this house unique

The charm of an A-frame, great kitchen. Walk to lake. Be sure to buy some of the locally made maple syrup from the Wheeler farm roadside stand - the best maple syrup in the world!

Nice home with great backyard patio and front deck, in a private, peaceful, treed space

  • 5 of 5

We went in summer.

The large open plan in the main living area made this home a fun place for our family get-together. The kitchen is updated, well stocked with plates, cups, bowls, dishes, pans, gadgets etc. and made cooking home-made meals convenient and easy. There is a large fridge, coffee pot, toaster oven microwave etc. We brought our own electric hot water kettle which helped a lot for our large group.

The beds are comfortable and adequate. The spiral staircase up to the loft sleeping area and down to the ground level sleeping quarters can be a challenge for elderly, very pregnant or other physically challenged folks. Phyllis the owner made that very clear up front so no surprises there. We did fine. It just means that if someone cannot negotiate the spiral stairs inside they can take the steps from the front deck to the downstairs level where three of the bedrooms are located.

Phyllis is very good with providing information and sent us documents with clear directions and information that may be needed. She was easy to reach and talk to every time.

You provide your own sheets and towels, soap and shampoo which was fine with us. We brought along kitchen towels, extra paper towels/ bathmats for our convenience. Two bathrooms are adequate in space and amenities. There are plenty of blankets and comforters in house; board games galore, toys for little kids. We did not use the canoe or kayaks as we stayed busy with other activities.

We did not see bears- which was a source of disappointment to the little kids and a relief for the adults.

The lake is a short walk away. The Humor Art Gallery nearby was fun on a rainy day. We enjoyed hiking the Molly Stark trail and Hogback. Went to classical music concerts at the Marlboro music festival (truly excellent). Checked out Brattleboro for a day out in the “city”. Berry picking, was a hit with the little ones. Food is great in the nearby restaurants in Wilmington. (Dot's has the best home-made bread ever); Ice cream at Wahoos.

Shaw’s the grocery store is very adequate for most of the things you may need to get.

The property is quite clean but could use some newer carpeting in the basement. Furniture is older and homey. This is not a hotel. Everyone had a great time. We couldn’t ask for more. And yeah, I would recommend it to friends.

Late Spring Family Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved this house! We stayed in late May, during mud/black fly season. We loved that the house had a big open floorplan - its much bigger than it looked in pictures! There were plenty of beds and rooms for all 8 of us! The location was perfect, and the neighborhood is great!

Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just great for us. Lots of room, great sunlight, nice and warm. It was close enough to Mt. Snow that we felt like we were right there, and close enough to everything else that we could get anywhere in a short time.

The only thing that was a bit odd were the stairs, which makes it hard to carry things up and down. But it really was a non-issue.

I'd recommend this place, for sure. There was great communication, so I had no questions about anything upon arrival. The house was clean, and everything was as expected or better.

Really, it's just a great house.

Wonderful family week at the lake!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the house, walking the path down to the beautiful lake to swim and canoe, exploring trails and riding our bikes. It was great to cook in the newly remodelled kitchen, and loved sharing meals around the spacious dining room table. The spaciousness of the main floor, with the openness from the kitchen to the dining room to the living room, to the deck, work very well for our family----we could be connected, while doing various activities (lots of monopoly and ScoobyDo for my granddaughter----she loved the supply of games and interesting treasures around the house, and building fairy houses in the back forest. Phyllis was very responsive and helpful, getting back to me right away for questions and suggestions-----it was a delight communicating with her. I loved the upstairs bedroom with all the windows facing the forest; the rest of the family preferred to be downstairs, where they didn't have to navigate the spiral staircase to get to the bathroom at night. This house and location provided just the vacation I was hoping for, traveling from Oregon to spend a quality week with my Vermont famiy.

Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is perfect for a weekend getaway. 10 of us rented this for a ski weekend and were not disappointed. While the weather was very cold, the central fireplace kept the cabin warm and cozy. This place is exactly as depicted. Kitchen was fully stocked and the rooms were spacious enough for all of us. The house has just enough space for everyone to enjoy their space, but great for gatherings. I just loved the charm of the pine walls, spiral staircase, and can't say enough how much the fireplace rocked! Short drive to Mt. Snow and downtown area. Great for snowshoeing as well. Phyllis was quick with email correspondence and easily reached if anything arose. We were short on firewood - no doubt from the insanely cold temps, and by the time we came back from a day at the mountain the firewood was replenished! She gives you a great guide for local food, shops, hiking, etc. A definite must for a nice weekend away!
