About Vincent Connolly

Hello!

Thanks for visiting the Killington Mountain House website. I've owned and managed this property for the past 10 years and it's brought great excitement for me and my family. I'm passionate about snowboarding, mountain biking and snowmobiling- Vermont proved to be a very special getaway for me since I was a child growing up in New Jersey. Over the years I've called Killington and Burlington Vermont home and eventually made my way out west to Steamboat Springs and now Evergreen Colorado.

I manage this house with the help of a great team that includes my neighbor Gerald/Caretaker, Rose/Cleaning Lady and Andy/Handyman. I'm constantly upgrading the property to ensure that there is a great vacation experience for the families, groups and businesses that I rent to.

I've worked in the athletic/action sports industry for the past 25 years - starting at Princeton Ski Shop where I was the snowboard buyer and GM. Later I worked for Ride Snowboards as a Tech Rep and then moved to Steamboat Springs to work for Boa Technology. My passion for snowboarding took me back to Vermont to work for Burton Snowboards and now I'm back in Colorado as the Global Category Director at Boa Technology in Denver.

My wife Moriah is from Morrisville Vermont and we recently had our 1st child Grace Connolly. Life is great and we get back to Vermont often to see family, friends and the Killington Mountain House.

I'm available 24/7 so please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about he house or the Killington area.

Cheers,

Vincent Connolly

Great Experience with the owner and the property

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home the 1st weekend of June 2009. Working with the owner was very easy, as he was quick to respond and very professional. (Due to my career, 90% of the communication was done via e-mail). The house was in excellent condition when we arrived. It was very clean, well organized and had everything you would need (towels, Toilet Paper, kitchen appliances, Stereos, firewood, etc.) The location was just as the owner had described - my group was looking for a large home, where we could spent evenings in the backyard without disturbing the neighbors.I've rented homes in Killington Vt for the last few years, but this was one of the best. Very satisfied customer.

We created memories in this home that will last us all a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to vacation at any time of the year. Extremely spacious, yet homey. The owners are very friendly as they communicated back and forth with us prior to our arrival. They even went as far as sending us emails throughout our stay to ensure that we were satisfied (as we were). The Killington area has plenty to do, but is a quiet scenic getaway at the same time.

Better than I hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here for a 3 day weekend in late spring and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Myself and 26 of my friends came for a bachelor party weekend and the house was bigger than expected. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and do there own thing. The big yard was a bonus, we had tons of space to set up the yard games during the day and sit by the fire pit at night. Vincent was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. I am an advid skier and look forward to renting this space again in the winter!

Perfect place for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here recently with a large group of friends for a long weekend away. PLENTY of sleeping space made this a great location for us. There is also big game/living room upstairs, which came in handy for the one rainy day we had during our stay. Vincent was very helpful and easy to communicate with.

Perfect Experience! Fantastic Property and Owner!!

  • 5 of 5

I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS RENTAL PROPERTY ENOUGH - IT WAS EVERYTHING WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR AND MORE.

Myself and 25 of my friends rented the house for 4 nights over MLK weekend, arriving Thursday night. While the house may seem small when you pull in the driveway, as soon as we walked in we were in awe - the place is amazing. The living areas were PLENTY big enough for our entire group, and could have comfortably held more - the upstairs lounge/bar was a favorite the entire weekend. Everything was just as described; location was convenient to the town and the mountain (10-15 minute drive, and the shuttles were willing to drive out and pick us up on Saturday night), the hot tub was great and clean, the grill was loaded with gas and ready to go, the bonfire was stocked with wood.

If you have a group as big as ours, you have to be prepared for the 2.5 bathrooms being an inconvenience to some, but if you plan for it and know what you're getting into you can definitely make it work (would also not hurt for people to bring towels, although there were quite a few in the house).

What separates Vincent from many owners was his attentiveness and responsiveness to questions and problems. The ONLY issue we had was the internet not working the Thursday night we arrived. Vincent was completely on top of it from the moment I called him, and got us both on the phone with the cable company to sort out the issue. He was understanding of how important internet is in a remote area with bad cell service and did everything in his power to get the problem resolved as quickly as possible.

If we ever do another trip to Killington with a group this size, we will most certainly look to rent this property again.
