We rented this house for a New Year's ski gathering of 10 family members. Four (2 adults, 2 children) from Maine, four (2 adults, 2 children) from New Jersey, and 2 adults from Massachusetts. We chose southern VT because it would be an equal drive time from both NJ and ME. We chose the house based on its proximity to both Stratton and Mount Snow. As nice as the pictures are, they didn't do it justice. This house is more beautiful and spacious than the pictures portrayed. The owner, Keith was more than accommodating and responsive to our needs. The house is very clean and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, without sacrificing anything. The clean outdoor hot tub and warm storage closet with several built-in boot warmers were a huge added benefit! I would definitely recommend this house to friends and I will likely rent it again next year!
My family and I have rented dozens of beach houses; but with an important birthday over the President's Day weekend I decided to embrace winter and ski; leading us to the Vermont Family Ski Lodge. What a great decision! Although there was record snow and subzero temperatures, the minute we lit a fire in the huge stone fireplace we were cozy and warm. Well situated between 3 different ski slopes it was all we could ask for. The house was wonderful, all the amenities listed were there, and the hot tub was a special treat in the cold cold temps. The owner could not have been more helpful, giving us directions to the nearest stores, restaurant tips, and fully stocking wood for the fireplace, our favorite gathering spot after a day out in the cold. The beautiful setting amidst the Green Mountain National Forest was a natural wonder. Best birthday ever! Who knows - - maybe we'll start skipping the beach.
Stayed here with small family for four weeks over Christmas 2012. Two young teenagers, two German Shepherds as well; walked every evening, hiked back into woods. No neighbors or houses visible from house. Woods stretch back forever on front and rear of house. Way beyond our expectations which were very high. The house is extremely comfortable, very well heated--the fireplace cannot be beat. Internet connection which I needed for my business was excellent. Stratton village just a couple miles to the left, Wardsboro a couple to the right. Fantastic isolated location on mountain, woods all around. We saw a Moose! Owner was best we ever rented from--checked in to be sure we had everything we needed, answered all our questions. The home was clean and very well laid out, the main room was spacious, windows all round, beautiful snow fall visible from every window. Brand new outdoor hot tub a real fun experience in a snowfall! We have stayed at many homeaway properties all over and at all times of year and this one way exceeded our every expectation. I really cannot say enough about how much fun and relaxing and enjoyable it was to stay here.
The property was well maintained, clean and prepared. Everything worked well. The owner checked in to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. I strongly endorse this vacation property.
World class golf courses. X-country/snowmobile trails leave from property.
