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!

Charming Green Mountains Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect get away in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

The house is what you'd expect, it's not super modern, but it's comfortable, charming and has the basics of what you need from a rental. Amazing lofted A frame ceiling, fire pit was a real treat, and kitchen was well equipped. I'd say the house was more geared towards a winter ski lodge than a summer get away. Saying that we had a great time with our two young boys over a week around Labor Day—they loved adventuring around the woodland property and canoeing on the lake.

Because of it's elevation, note that it's definitely a lot cooler than the surrounding area. It struggled to get above 70 during the week we were there in August/September, but then that was a pleasant relief from the mugginess of the city.

Old but Charming

  • 4 of 5

Property is as advertised and the owner was a pleasure to work with. The A-Frame home was perfect for our weekend. Beds were comfortable and in good shape. Kitchen has been updated and was a good size to cook for a dozen people. Lots of great deck space. Only negative, and its a minor one, is that some of the furnishings (especially outdoors) were old and need maintenance or replacing.

Owner's Response: We appreciate Tim’s comments. We were there the weekend after his stay to check things out. A very rainy spring and June this year --- which delayed our usual spring cleaning of the decks and outside teak furniture. This has been done. The outside furniture in need of repair or broken - a wicker set and a wooden rocker - were extra pieces that were stored in shed pending our taking them to town dump. Our handyman has a new assistant who did not know this. To be be sure this doesn’t happen again, we will label any thing in storage shed that is not for use. Inside, we have started a refinshing project to spruce up our older pieces. Thanks Tim. Phyllis

Great ski getaway!!!

Wonderful, spacious home with an incredible owner/host. We had a great time skiing at Mount Snow and were made to feel so at home that it truly was a vacation like no other. We hope to ski even more next season :)

Thanks, Phyllis for sharing your incredible ski home!

Picturesque, and Large, Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised. Large 5 bedroom A-Frame, near Mount Snow Ski Area. The house was clean, and well supplied. The central fireplace was my favorite part of the house. Our group spent the evenings around the fireplace, eating and playing games. The host was easy to contact, and ensured there were no issues.
