Killington Area House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 12

Fantastic Ski House! The living room, dining area and kitchen are all in one open area which is great for a large family/group - and all within 1 mile of the access Rd. There is a gorgeous new Sundance Hot Tub on the deck that overlooks the Vt forest preserve. Trails in forest lead to Kent pond which is great for cross country skiing, snowshoeing. The living area has a brick fireplace, french doors to the backyard, all new furniture, a 42' flat panel HD TV with cable, VCR, DVD player, stereo with CD player, a movie library. The renovated game room has new sectional sofa, 50' plasma TV, foosball table, darts & XBox (bring extra games) and board games. There are 5 bedrooms and three newly renovated full baths with on-demand hot water heater. The master bedrm has all new furniture & new mattress - and 4 other new mattresses in other bedrms. House has a great mud room downstairs and a new top-of-the-line washer/dryer.

This listing is posted and rented by the owners and we would love to share our ski house with you. We love to use it as much as we can, but recently family constraints make it difficult to do so. You will find a comfortable home with lots of amenities for everyone to enjoy!

About Marlene or Jim Hardy

I bought this house to share with all my friends who all skied together. Now, we are all married with small kids, so only get to use it occasionally.

Marlene or Jim Hardy purchased this house in 1997

Why Marlene or Jim Hardy chose Killington Area

Of all the ski resorts on the East coast, there is always snow at Killington.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank you for the fun and comfortable accommodations that were provided to us during our stay in Vermont. My friends 2 year old and the adults loved the xBox Kenect and we enjoyed the hot tub. We also loved the fact that the house is located away from the mail road up to the mountain but close enough that we could get there even in a snow storm! We will definitely be contacting you next winter to book your ski house again.

Can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at this Killington house, we knew our weekend would be a memorable one. The house is large and comfortable, a perfect ski chalet. There were nine of us, and we found the house to be perfect for us.

Due to a storm right before we arrived, the heater had reset itself and we woke up to a chilly house. I called Jim and he picked up right away, asking one or two questions before calling the heating company to fix the problem right away. Within an hour the house was toasty warm and those who chose not to ski were more than content. We appreciated Jim's quick response and immediate resolution to the problem. Not many owners are that fast and kind. It turned an issue into nothing more than a hiccup.

The kitchen has anything you can ask for, and we spent the evenings either in the hot tub or playing games in the den. Plenty of space for adults and children. And, although we did not come to the mountains to watch television, the big screen was fantastic to watch the Jets take down the Patriots!

No more than a 15 minute drive to Killington's slopes, we enjoyed the convenience and the amenities provided by this home. I'd whole-heartedly recommend this home for a getaway with friends or family. Jim and Marlene were excellent hosts, reaching out to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. We hope to return soon!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My group of 10 had a great visit and no issues what so ever during our stay. The house had plenty of room for our big group (including plenty of extra room for additional guest if you have a bigger party), a great game selection in their updated game room (bottom floor) and great hot tub perfect for after the slopes.

I would highly recommend staying at this house. On top of the location and house being perfect, Marlene and Jim made the whole process extremely easy and very welcoming. They always had a rapid response whether through email, text or phone, even though I did not have to contact once with any complaints.

Nice spacious home in the heart of Killington!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jim and Marlene's house was fantastic. It is exactly how it is described in the details of the house and got everything we were told. This house is great for a big family or group to stay in and enjoy the wonders of Killington, Vermont. The house is a 3 minute drive to Killington Access road where you will find many restaurants, bars, and fun for the children. The drive to the base of Killington mountain is approximately 8 minutes from Jim's house - Can't beat it. The house itself was very well kept and spacious. I loved the fireplace in the living room where they stock you with plenty of wood. There are 5 bedrooms with many beds for people to sleep comfortably and also three full bathrooms with showers which was great. The basement is completely finished with a big comfortable couch and huge tv. We also were able to enjoy the hot tub on the back deck that can fit a good amount of people. I would definitely recommend this house to a big group looking to ski or just get away for a week and I will be coming back soon.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! We had a wonderful time. Everything was explained perfectly ahead of time and there were no complications once we arrived. Condidtions were beautiful and the house is just a short drive to the mountain. The house itself is great, the entrway downstairs is perfect for all our gear. All the bedrooms were super comfortable and spacious, with no bunk beds like so many ski houses (we can not deal with bunk beds after a night at the Pickle Barrel). There was a group of 11 of us and it was very spacious, we could have comfortably fit more. We had a ton of fun, skied during the day and spent the nights at the Pickle Barrel (the house is within the Pickle Rider's pick up radius, HUGE plus!). My only complaint is that we should have stayed longer! Marlene and Jim were very accomodating with a last minute date change, so greatful for that. We will definitly be coming back, but next time we'll have to stay longer.

Great place not far from the mt. with a lot to do!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house! We got in on friday afternoon and left sunday. It is perfect for a weekend getaway. Plenty of beds/bedrooms to accommodate larger groups. Between the multiple tv's, premium cable, a vast collection of Disney classics on VHS, hot tub and endless board games you will never be bored in this house. It is about a 5 minute drive to the main ski area so not far at all. Every member of your group will have fun whether they like skiing or just sitting at home by the fire reading a book.

We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for family skiing vacation

Well laid out for our extended family, with nice central living/dining. Waffle maker was a big hit! Good location within easy reach of Killington and cross-country skiing locations. Hosts friendly and helpful.

Map

Car: recommended

Our house is one mile from Killington Access Road (one mile from the corner of Route 100 and Route 4 - Bills Country Store) - on the north side of Kent pond.

You are right near all the action of Killington' s restaurants and bars and slopes, and surrounded by the beauty of Vermont. You can also catch the Killington shuttle bus at the bottom of our street, if you don't want to drive to the slopes or bars and restaurants.

The property borders protected forest land which connects to the Mountain Meadows Cross Country Ski trails. You can ski or snowshoe right out the back door. In the summer, you can hike through to access Kent Pond (it is larger than you think).

If there is going to be snow anywhere on the east coast, Killington will have the most!!!

Other Activities: Dog sledding, tubing, canoeing

Ski: Our house is 1 mile from the Access road of Killington, Vermont. If there is snow in the northeast - Killington will have the most. It is great for all types of skiiers. We are also very close to Pico mountain (killington's sister mountain), too. So if you want a more relaxed ski experience, ski here as well. If you want to drive about an hour to experience something different, you can also access Sugarbush to the north or Okemo to the south.
