About Kevin

We are skiers! Summer time we frequent Mad/Chase/Mill River - two are within walking distance from back yard.

We are outdoor folks - picnic table, fire pit, chairs for outside - We like clean! We use this house and want it to be as clean and comfortable for you as for us. We have what we consider the finest cleaning crew in the Mad River Valley.

Kevin purchased this house in 2003

Why Kevin chose Sugarbush Mountain

Winter:

This is the very best valley in Vermont! Better snow ( 300'+) from lake effect, NO stop lights, franchises, or cheesy motels for 30+ miles in Mad River Valley - VERY quiet year round, yet close to Stowe, Woodstock, Killington and 45 mins to Burlington! Montreal is 1.5-2 hrs drive.

Summertime yard is perfect for outdoor gatherings around fire pit next to hot tub and picnic table, plus deck with large grill off kitchen. Yard is perfect for Frisbee, sitting out on a warm day with woods all around - no neighbors can be seen in summer. Close to everything, even short walks in private neighborhood. Lot's of light in house east-facing living/kitchen and deck off kitchen.Great sunrises from living/kitchen area and deck with your coffee.

What makes this house unique

Flat yard for kids adults who enjoy sitting outside, manicured professionally maintained lawn, hot tub and fireplace for year round enjoyment outside, Can see no houses in summertime.

Private community with 28 houses - no traffic. Good walking/snowshoeing paths behind house ( Catemount Trail) Marked!

2.5 miles to the famous Farmers Market in Waitsfield Village each Sat - 4 miles to Warren Store. Long Trail is accessed from either Appalachian Gap ( 4 miles) or Lincoln Gap ( 6 miles) over Mts Abraham, Lincoln, Ellen, General Stark and four minor peaks for easy drop off and pick up

ideal for our family vacation minus snow and ski

  • 4 of 5

we loved this home-the layout, amenities including hot tub and firepit-felt like camp!

kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed meal prep and eating in the dining room.

TVs were great

library for reading and quiet worked well

great mud room and we needed it as it was muddy instead of snowy

we hope to return as a family when there is real snow to ski.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Alice, we wish we had more snow for you - we work very hard to make it a great place inside in the case of bad weather. The small villages close by and Catemount Trail out our back yard along with the fire pit and hot tub give options if low snow or not everyone in party skis or boards.

Respite/Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time to stay here. We love the warm and cozy feel of home. Fully stocked kitchen, plenty of beds and bathrooms. Very clean. Close proximity to farmers market, restaurants and hiking trails. Perfect for large groups that like private bedroom space and a really cool bunking room for traveling with kids and teenagers.

Perfect wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our two bridal parties AND their significant others (20 total) stayed here for our wedding weekend and could not have asked for a better set up! The house has one master suite (bedroom and full bathroom), which was perfect for my husband and me, and tons of sleeping space for a whole house full of adults! Having three FULL bathrooms was key. The fire pit and hot tub were such a great spot to hang out at night in addition to the good sized living room/dining room area.

The people living in the apartment above the garage were there on and off over the weekend, though we never saw them, just their car! This is the one thing I was a little worried about, but turned out to be a non-issue.

The owner was very responsive via email throughout the booking process, leading up to the event, and even afterward...when friends forgot some items in the house!

We highly recommend this property!

Nice outdoor deck, hot tub and firepit combo

  • 4 of 5

A few friends and I stayed here during mud season and enjoyed it. We were in town for Lawson's Finest Liquids 7th Anniversary Market/Party in nearby Waitsfield, where the beer was excellent - the whole surrounding area from Warren up through Waterbury, Hardwick and the Northeast Kingdom has amazing craft beer and spirits. The weather was nice enough to eat on the back deck just off the kitchen/main living room. We also took a dip in the hot tub which is right outside the garage (other side of house from the deck) and has a firepit ready and waiting to dry you off when you're done.

Ping pong in the garage was cool too.

Upstairs bedroom and bath were good. Middle level (it's a split level house) had two good living rooms, one of which shares an open concept with the dining area and kitchen (that opens up to the deck). Full bath on mid level too.

We mostly avoided the lower level since it had a musty smell. The tenant above the garage and the owners checked on it for us, and to them it was a normal basement/old house smell so we could have been overreacting. The owners and the housekeeper were extremely responsive to our concerns about the smell and had smell absorbing bags ("damp rid") at the house which we used to try to mask the smell.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mike. We did find some dampness from a washing machine area that we fixed, and we added 1st floor permanent ventilation in that laundry room which is the only room in the house with no windows. It had never been a problem in 12+ years of renting, so we gave Mike a complimentary night in the future and a partial refund. He was pleased and thanked us for the attention.

Perfect spot for a group trip

  • 5 of 5

I came up with a group of 15 for a long weekend over new years and this house was the perfect place for a big group gathering. It's enormous, there were far more beds than we used. The kitchen and living areas are bigger than they appear in photos. The house is very well stocked -- the kitchen is great and the property is awesome. There's a firepit next to the hot tub which was SO much fun -- everyone could be having fun outside at the same time, and sharp rivalries developed between the group in the hot tub and the hardcore cold-lovers by the firepit ;). And the area truly has something for everyone -- Mad River and Sugarbush feel like they're just around the corner. There's masses of cross country skiing, and for hiking, there's an access to the Long Trail ten minutes drive from the house. We loved it. Overall the house is in great condition (a friend with a very severe mold allergy had trouble in the basement, but felt fine in the rest of the house), and it's a total bargain for the number of people it fits, all the amenities, and being so close to skiing!

Roomy & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my bridal party during my wedding weekend and it perfectly fit our needs. There were beds to spare even with 12+ people staying over, and we weren't tripping all over each other the whole time. The owner is very easy to communicate with, as is the property manager, and I received detailed instructions with important details and expectations which answered any and all questions I had during my stay.

The house itself is cute and country and very well stocked with dishes and cookware, utensils, spices and basic cooking supplies, linens and towels, plus a lot of extras like a big hot tub, a fire pit, a ping pong table, multiple grills, and flat screen TV's in multiple rooms.

The only worry I had was that there is a tenant who lives above the garage in an apartment separate from the main house, but they were very accommodating and we very rarely even caught a glimpse of them.

Overall I would highly recommend this property especially to those looking to house large parties!
