Not a typical rental. This A-frame style home has been in our family since it was built over 50 years ago. The open floor plan on the first floor brings family and friends together. The home is minutes from Mt. Snow and Carinthia. The house is 1/2 a mile from Carinthia lift at MT SNOW and about 1 mile from the main mountain. It is on a quiet and safe dirt road, surrounded by woods with access to trails for walking, hiking, biking X Country and snow mobiling. The parking area will accommodate many cars and trailers.
On the lower level is a very large mud room area (coats and boots do not pile up around the house and wet clothes can be hung to dry). There is a master bedroom with king-size bed and bath on this level, as well as a shop and laundry area.
On the first floor, the open floor plan includes the kitchen, dining area and living room. There is a game closet for good, old fashioned family fun, and plenty of books, but no TV, Cable or high speed internet. Off the living room is a large deck which is perfect for sunny lunches and afternoon cocktails, weather permitting. Windows in the Living Room look uphill into the woods. The first floor has the 'Honeymoon Suite' with a queen sized bed and a bath. There is also a second bathroom with a tub on the first floor.
The second floor has two bedrooms. One with three built in twin beds and the other with two built in twin beds and a full-size bed. Both rooms have ample closets and drawers under the beds for storage.
Keywords: Charming A frame ski house
This A frame house was built by our parents and we all learned to ski at Mt. Snow in the 1950s and love going up all year long as there are hiking and biking trails out the door and the main lodge at Mt Snow is a mile away, but the Carinthia Lodge is only 1/2 mile.
Carolyn Abernethy purchased this house in 1950
The house is great for cooking and entertaining. It is fully furnished and has a full shop and large parking lot and everything one needs for a great get away.
This is the true get away house with no tv, no internet, no nonsense.
Our 12-person Tough Mudder team stayed in this house for the weekend of Tough Mudder New England at Mount Snow for Friday and Saturday night.
The house is cozy and relaxing on a quiet street with lots of room for parking. The house is minutes from Carinthia and Mount Snow's main lodge, a dream for the winter months. The beds were comfortable (except the extra sofa bed, but that's to be expected) and the kitchen was well supplied. Everything in the house is labeled from light switches to drawers which is nice for travelers, don't have to guess where things belong. This house definitely has character and is very welcoming.
The only negative thing I have to say is that two days before our arrival through our departure date I have called and left several messages for the owner and still have not heard back. Communication with the owner up until then was great but I'm upset that she disappeared right before we left when we had important questions.
The toilet in the basement was also out of order which made things difficult.
We just stayed at this relaxing and beautiful A frame MLK weekend 2011. No TV was an advantage because we all played games and relaxed with great company. This home is perfect for anyone. Our age group was 14-65 and nobody had a complaint. We all went skiing during the day and then cooked a great meal where we all gathered in the living and dining room to eat. Afterward we would have game night or just read a book. There is much to do around the area such as hiking and seeing a movie. Also great places to eat. This home is definitely suitable for those who just want to relax and get a way.
My husband and I have been here numerous times but have never wanted to write a review because we don't want the secret out - THIS IS A FABULOUS PLACE TO VISIT. We like to come in the summer for golf, fishing and just some quite time away from the hussle and bustle of life. The pictures show a lot of snow so the skiing must be great. Don't break a leg!
We stayed at this wonderful A-frame President's weekend of 2007. We had a memorable ski getaway. The home was cozy, warm, and clean of course. My favorite room was the Honeymoon Suite. We definitely look forward to staying here again soon. Thanks to the owners: Carolyn & Family.
