About Yvonne

We love Vermont! It is truly a 4 season destination. My husband has put his heart and soul into making the house very nice for our family. We occasionally rent to those that respect and appreciate the effort.

Yvonne purchased this house in 1996

Why Yvonne chose Killington

I spent many years renting different condos and houses in Vermont. This house is great because it offers so many different areas to relax and entertain. I love having my family and friends up to ski in the winter or to explore in the summer. Each summer we explore a different swimming hole that the kids love! This property has the places for the kids to play and explore outside whether its sledding, biking or just exploring the woods.

What makes this house unique

The windows in our house give you the feeling that you are outside enjoying natures beauty while sitting in front of fire with a nice glass of wine or hot cocoa. You can soak in the beauty of the Vermont landscape while you are relaxing on the coach or entertaining in the commercial kitchen. It allows your family & friends to gather in the different entertainment areas of the house and have that feeling of togetherness as a group but privacy when you need it. I think that is unique to renting a larger home as opposed to a hotel where you lose some of that in a common lobby or lounge area of a hotel. Thats why this house is perfect for family reunions and the like.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Yvonne:

Well we're home in NJ. Want to tell you what a wonderful time we had. We always enjoy going away as a family each year, but everyone loved your home. Hope everything was in order when we left. Sorry about the Martini glass. I'm glad I got to meet you. My husband enjoyed talking to your husband. Who knew we had something in common. :) Hope you got home safe! I'm sure we'll be in touch. Drop me a line anytime!

Love Dawn

Great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We had our cross country extended family get together. Everyone had a great time! The house and grounds are perfect for all ages, with enough bedrooms to keep everyone happy. Yvonne went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great.

Nice house, terrible management

  • 1 of 5

Example of my back and forth after a couple issues with the home. After her response I followed up multiple times with no resolution. Disappointing.

Hi Yvonne-

Hope all is well. We enjoyed our stay in Killington with a couple of exceptions:

1.) The carbon monoxide alarm kept being triggered at the front door. The alarm would go off until someone reset the system. I didn't see anything in the welcome letter on this front and it seriously inconvenienced our stay.

2.) The hot tub was drained by a service technician on the 2nd day. He refilled the tub but it obviously wasn't warm enough for people to use. This was a major part of the reason that we booked the home- it was stormy the 2nd day and we would have preferred to use the hot tub that we paid for.

Given 1.) and 2.) I'd like to request a refund for day 2. Please let me know if you will be able to accommodate.

Thanks,

Josh

Hi Josh:

How do you expect someone to correct any issues you are having when you say nothing? We easily could have called the alarm company or property management to address these issues so they could have been correctly immediately. Our property management company is excellent. For example, alarm company can do a reset remotely - takes five minutes. Second, the hot-tub servicer could have filled with hot water if you have any issue.

We can't read minds and all you had to do was text, email or call, but you didn't. I don't think its fair you are asking for a refund. I will call the property management and review the report of how the home was left and I will follow up with you. I really wish you would have said something......we heard nothing and could only assume everything was fine.

Best regards, Yvonne

Owner's Response: Josh Your disappointment is rooted in the fact you wanted a refund & free trip. You feel you should get a refund when you said "nothing" and stayed the entire time and your complaint is for two minor issues. It's unwarranted. Good luck in all your future endeavors.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We held our family reunion at the house, so there was a total of 18 people, from babies to great grandmother. It was a summer visit so we took advantage of the nearby Killington Adventure Center which was a lot of fun. The house is rustic, but comfortably furnishe and clean. It was warm and we had all of the windows open so it cooled down pretty well at night. The house is three levels, and the stairs are bit circular in nature, so a little steep and narrow, and therefore a bit difficult for the elderly to manage. The beds were all comfortable, there was plenty of seating in the living areas, and a huge picnic table where we could all sit to eat together (which became the favorite spot in the house). The kitchen has almost every size and kind of pot or pan you could want, and enough dishes for a group this size. The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and needs. We had an absolute fabulous time, with tons of laughter and joy, the house will always hold fond memories for us.
