Four Corners is a three bedroom two-bathroom home located on the Handle Road less than 1/4 mile from the lifts at the Carinthia portion of Mount Snow. The home was built in the 1830's and has an old country farmhouse feel.
The first floor consists of a dining room, small kitchen, living room with wood stove insert, full bathroom, and bedroom with a queen sized bed and a single bed. The second floor has two bedrooms, one with a queen and a full, and the other with a full and a single bed. There is a full bathroom on the second floor.
The backyard is large and nice for a short snowshoe loop. Continue the hike past the log cabin and alongside a stream to backwoods snowshoe trails. In front of the house, on Handle, is the Valley trail. This trail travels alongside the road north to Carinthia. To the south it travels off road to the Valley Trail trails network. The land beyond the Handle Rd., in front of the home, comprises the Tannery Wetlands where there are trails that venture down to the North Branch of the Deerfield River.
The Hermitage is located on the same road as Four Corners about two miles south of the home. West Dover bars, restaurants, and supermarkets are located nearby on Tannery, Rte 100 and Handle Rd.
The home is a duplex. I usually stay in the other side of the home. The two sides are separated by a door in the kitchen, which remains closed. Each side has separate entrance/exits and are private.
The surrounding lands have been preserved through the Vermont Land Trust and the Tannery Wildlife Refuge. There is an animal travel corridor from the upland forest down to the Tannery Wetlands. This makes for interesting bear, deer, beaver, and other small animal sitings. There are a couple of small secret fishing holes nearby and several cold water streams travel throughout the forest.
This place was really great! A bunch of friends and I spent the New Years here at a last minute booking. The house has tons of charm, and is really cozy. The hot tub is amazing and there is plenty of room for sleeping. They also have little signs everywhere telling you how to use the showers/etc... a very nice touch.
The kitchen may be a little small but I wouldn't take anything away for that. Overall a wonderful experience!
Great home to rent as a family, multiple families, or with a group of friends! Home was warm even when it was -20 below zero on Presidents Day weekend! Kid friendly....(ages 6, 5, and 2) with beds that had guard rails (a very nice touch!).
The house was clean and whomever commented that the kitchen was Small, well obviously, does not live in an NYC apartment! Kitchen was large enough for us! We cooked 2 dinners for 8, and everything worked out perfectly! I would stay at this property again and will recommend this property to my friends!
My husband and I and our dog stayed here over Memorial weekend and we had a great time in spite of the rainy/chilly weather. We used the hot tub which was great. The house was very comfortable...Houdini felt right at home. It is rustic which is what we prefer coming from the country ourselves. We used the fireplace, but would have been warm if we'd turned the heat up instead. We had breakfast and lunch in and went out to dinner. (We would highly recommend Two Tannery Road restaurant.) The owner of Four Corners was very easy to work with and when we had a minor "technical" problem help was almost immediate.
My friends and I stayed at Four Corners during a recent ski trip. The house was lovely, with a rustic country feel. It was clean, the fireplace was roaring, and there was no shortage of hot water during the entire weekend (an important thing when it's 3 degrees outside!). Best of all, the owner was so kind to tow our cars out twice when we were stuck in the snow. Snow tires and/or 4WD highly recommended when there is snow on the ground. Very close to the Mt. Snow base lodge, a supermarket, and bars/restaurants. I would recommend Four Corners to anyone staying near Mt. Snow.
I must admit, I have spent most of my travels recently staying in hotels. I became a complacent traveler. I took a chance recently and decided to stay in a rented home, complete with the prospects of having a kitchen rather than room service. It was one of the best decisions I have made in a while. This is certainly a beautiful home, and it makes you feel like you are a part of Vermont. I enjoyed staying here so much more than being part of the endless shuffle through hotels, inns, and even rented condominiums. The house was a perfect getaway, complete with everything I needed. I enjoyed cooking my own dinners, lighting a fire, and relaxing in the living room or hot tub. I highly recommend this home if you are considering going to southern Vermont.
'Four Corners,' as we have come to affectionately call the house, is a consistently excellent vacation spot. In fact, this is the only location my family will visit when heading to Mount Snow! The historic property is chock full of interesting anecdotes (supplied in a handy visitor's guide) and the opportunity for good times. Obviously the proximity to the mountain is a major benefit, but there is so much more to do: the hot tub,the fireplaces, the beautifully furnished home has it all. There are also a great number of restaurants close by and a variety of other activites are available. As my fiance has commented during one of our many stays: "you'd have to be a real stick in the mud to not have a great time here!" I cannot recommend this property enough, you are bound to have a wonderful experience!
The quaint Vermont towns of West Dover and Wilmington are locales of activity for those that are not avid down-hillers. West Dover has a multitude of restaurants and bars as well as a community theater. Musical acts entertain crowds weekly at the Snow Barn and other après ski hot spots. Antique shops and hand-made craft stores dot the streets of downtown Wilmington. Four Corners provides immediate access to all of this excitement while still maintaining the charm of rural Vermont.
