About Greg & Marie Quill

Our family likes to ski and snowboard, hike, go boating, kayaking, fishing. Southern Vermont and the Deerfield Valley offers all that and more.

Greg & Marie Quill purchased this house in 2008

Why Greg & Marie Quill chose West Dover

Mt. Snow offers fantastic skiing and snowboarding. We also wanted to be close by to take care of our home.

What makes this house unique

We love how close our home is to the mountain and how much room there is for everyone to spread out or gather around to play games or enjoy a nice dinner. Our home has nice, comfortable furnishings and decor, but everyone can feel relaxed and right at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying in your beautiful home! The setting is gorgeous. We had lots of snow which made for a perfect ski vacation. We will leave with some wonderful memories. What a great way to bring in the New Year.

Great home and Marie was very responsive throughout the entire booking process. We had a group of 10 with plenty of space for sleeping and hanging out. Hot tub a bonus. Definitely recommend it and will hopefully return!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this home and we had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space for 7 adults and 4 children. The kids had fun playing in the spacious backyard. And the kitchen had everything we needed.

Perfect stay for 8 adults looking to relax

  • 4 of 5

I originally had 11 adults set up for this trip and ended up only going with 8. It was the perfect weekend get away for a group of snowboarders. The hot tub was ideal after an entire day on the mountain, the table was the perfect size for a "family" dinner. Everything was clean and to the point.

Beautiful, spacious and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This home had more conveniences than any other home we have stayed in. Plenty of room for everyone. Lots of games and fun things in the basement. Love the huge master bedroom and the back deck with grill. Greg and Marie were awesome to deal with. We had an unfortunate incident with the stove and within a few hours a brand new stove was delivered. Thanks so much for renting your home home to us. CF Live Oak, FL

Southern Vermont at it's best!!

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us (4 adults, 4 children) had the pleasure of staying at the cottage for the long Columbus Day weekend. Everything was as advertised, a lot of space and sleeping areas, great activities, hot tub and fully loaded kitchen. This is a can't miss place to go if you love Vermont. Convenient to everything you will need to make your trip the best it can be. Owners were very responsive and easy to get a hold of. We also got our deposit back in a timely manner. My family and I would recommend this house to anyone.
