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!

Great ski getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
