Overview

West Dover House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths

Relax in our sun-filled living room in front of the fire or soothe your tired muscles in the hot tub! Skiing is just a mile away and our street is on the free shuttle line that runs through the Mount Snow Valley.

Our Non-Smoking home boasts of an open floor plan that makes it perfect for groups of friends or for your family. It's kid-friendly with games, toys, a high chair, and porta-crib available. We also allow pets, so you can bring your well-behaved family dog, too! We have a run attached to the house that will work for a dog as big as a Lab and the house is on a low-volume, dead end street.

Best of all, you can walk down the street to some of the best pubs and restaurants in the Valley and we're less than a mile from the movie theater and shopping. Whether you come to ski or not, a great time is guaranteed!

About Ellen or George Ornato

We have owned the house since we were in our 20's, when we ran it as a 'share house' with friends. Our kids have grown up skiing at Mt. Snow and we've been fortunate to be able to share our house with others through rentals.

Ellen or George Ornato purchased this house in 1988

Why Ellen or George Ornato chose Mount Snow Area

We bought this house so that we'd have a convenient, relaxing, family-oriented home to stay in when skiing in Southern VT. It's perfect for two families or a group of friends & relatives.

What makes this house unique

We're a dog-friendly house in a quiet neighborhood. The local shuttle, the Moover, picks up at the bottom of our street and goes to Mt. Snow as well as into Downtown Wilmington. Our house is clean, open, and easy.

Great ski house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our ski weekend at Mount Snow! You could not ask for a better location if you are not staying on the mountain. The restaurants and bars at the end of the road were also very convenient. Helpful notes were left around the house to help with things like heat, the woodstove, and hot tub! It was a wonderful weekend!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

House was in great location and was extremely comfortable for our family and dogs. Lots of room and very well equipped. We enjoyed a fire and hot tub a couple of times during our stay. House was clean and enjoyable. Owner was extremely pleasant and great to work with. We will definitely rent again. Thanks for the hospitality!

TM weekend!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this house for Tough Mudder weekend and it was perfect for our needs. Comfortable home close to the mountain, Mt. Snow Mover pickup at the end of the street, and a hot tub to relax in after the days events. The kitchen was properly equipped allowing us to cook all our meals in. We would rent here again.

Great Location...Needs an update

  • 3 of 5

I agree with some of the other comments made by other reviewers...the location is great...the place is clean enough...but overall, it's definitley a little worn...The TV should be made a flat screen (they are not too expensive anymore)...the broken chair removed downstairs (don't just put a sign on it requesting not to sit on it)...I would stay here again, based on the location, price/value it gave...but wouldn't be heartbroken if I had to try some where else.

Owner's Response: We agreed with Greta! We have just installed a new 55" Smart TV and have upgraded most of the furnishings. Last year we added wireless internet and changed out all the bedding & pillows. Each year there's something new. We appreciate the feedback!

Very close to entrance to VAST trail for snowmobiling. There are three restaurants at the entrance to our road, a short walk from the house. We are also on the MOOver shuttle, which runs loops between Mt. Snow and Downtown Wilmington.
