Overview

Waitsfield House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The SNOWS NEST is a short term rental vacation home available year round in Vermont's beautiful Green Mountains. No matter the season, this is your base for weddings, graduations, reunions, cultural activities or athletic competitions or as just a fresh air getaway for you and family/friends.

Play hard, eat well, sleep at night with that wonderful tired feeling that only time in the out-of-doors can bring you? Relax and reconnect, with yourself, with family, with friends. Be silly, have fun, unplug that phone, leave all the day in, day out routine behind. Refresh, recharge, regress! Tell the adult in you to take a hike! (really ...)

The Snows Nest is planned to have everything you need. Just pack your clothes, pick up some groceries and you're all set. The house is fully equipped, not only with necessities, but with books, games, videos, toys and yes, a blender. Three good-sized bedrooms sleep six, two bathrooms, air conditioning, large rear deck with with a full retractable awning, covered front porch, fully furnished, 3.5 acres with diurnal pond (good for frogs, not for swimming). Off beautiful Common Road east of town. Views to the west. Please look at the pictures, as they say it all, it's very livable. Our home is designed for YEAR ROUND fun and relaxation; for family and social gatherings.

Open floor plan, warm tones, radiant heat floors, gas-burning fireplace. Appliances include gas stove, d/w, microwave, full w/d. Air conditioning.

This house has been continually upgraded every year since we bought in 2008. Even if you've been before, chances are you'll find something new. We can't stop feathering our nest.

If you MUST work while on vacation, we offer DSL Internet with WIFI for your own computer. Just don't work too hard.

YOUR CHILDREN AND FLEA-FREE, WELL BEHAVED PETS ARE WELCOME.

We strongly discourage smoking, but if you must, outdoors ONLY, and dispose of butts appropriately.

We regret that the longest stay we can offer is six weeks, and would not include full months in the winter, as we use the house ourselves occasionally. We welcome inquiries from three nights to six weeks.

Keywords: single-family, home, ski, nature, foliage, outdoor, family, pet, dog, peaceful, getaway, sports, wedding, reunion, graduation, reunion, arts, athletics.

About SM Reilly

Cosmo, Moxie, and I welcome you. Animals rule! We love well-behaved, flea-free pets with the exception of some dog breeds (sorry, our insurance requires it). We realize there are good dogs and bad dogs out there of every breed, but the following breeds are generally acknowledged to carry the greatest risk ...pit bulls, akitas, rottweilers, chow chows, presa canarios, or any wolf/dog combination. Mixed breeds are fine (who doesn't love a mutt).

SM Reilly purchased this house in 2008

Why SM Reilly chose Sugarbush Mountain

No better place on the planet than the State of Vermont! Sure, great skiing, but great all year round with the wonderful outdoors yours for hiking, biking, fishing, tennis/golf, birdwatching, long hikes, kicking back on the east porch or the west deck, we just can't list it all ... get away from the daily grind, Vermont will help you hit your reset button!

What makes this house unique

We don't aim to be the fanciest house, but then, do you want to tiptoe through a showcase property, or let your kids and dogs off their leashes? We DO aim for comfort, convenience and fun. The entire house is planned to be a walk in/walk out operation - just pack your suitcase, and stop at the grocery store, everything else you need is here already. It is clean, and furnished specifically for family and social gatherings. Enjoy the unspoiled and varied scenery for dog walking, biking, or just kick back on the front or back decks and watch the wildlife. Waitsfield can cover all your shopping needs. Sorry, no rentals longer than six weeks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall rating of overall rental experience is a 10 out of a possible 10. [Why?] It is a lovely, comfortable home. It was a comfort for our tired bodies after skiing!



We would love a couple of a chairs on the decks - ones that can stay out in the snow.



It's a great location nd you have lovely neighbors [the neighbors have horses who like carrots from strangers].



Overall value for the money spent 10 out of 10 where 10 is "excellent."

Definitely a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We are senior citizens who just returned from a 2 week stay at "Snow's Nest". Not only is the house well equipped but as repeat renters we noted many things that had been updated and refreshed. The setting offers privacy and quiet with flowers and shade trees, but many tourist attractions are less than an hour's drive away. The expression "Shop Local" will take on new meaning when you visit the Waitsfield Farmer's Market or any of the businesses in town; folks are friendly and helpful. For anyone who has not been in Vermont in the summer - swimming holes in the Mad River are for all ages; you will drive through the Bridge St. covered bridge many times and we recommend parking and walking a short way to watch the activity under the bridge!

Perfect distance from town

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to feel secluded in the beautiful splendor around the house but only be a short drive to the covered bridges, restaurants, shops and ski resorts in the area. It was a nice compromise to relax and still have the conveniences needed when entertaining a family of 5.

The owner provided timely, detailed information that included anything and everything we could possibly need for our stay. The Home was in immaculate condition, in a quiet, private area that was easy to access and provided us with all we needed. The communication with the owner was instantaneous and seamless via email and phone if we needed it (we did not).. We would without hesitation, recommend this home, and owner. we were there with our Adult daughter, and the home had a well stocked, PG roster of Videos and Wifi access..Our well mannered dog was welcome and she had plenty of room in the yard and nearby, for plenty of exercise and entertainment. We were there in Mud season, but well equipped with 2 4wd vehicles and had no problems.

Great quiet house close to Sugarbush

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful ski weekend. The house was charming with all the necessary amenities. We cooked and had a great nice sleep after skiing all day. Location is great. It was nice to get away from it all. Short drive to town and Sugarbush. Our dog enjoyed the long walks in the woods and along the quiet roads. Thanks again.

Great family vacation in Vermont.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week away in Vermont. The house is great and has everything you need, and the location is outstanding. Very farmy area, tucked away in the Green Mountains. Just what we wanted.
