family ski house

  • 3 of 5

cozy family house. It could be updated with new comforters, pillows, etc. I would be nice to not have to bring sheets for everyone, given that we pay a cleaning fee. Location is great for skiing.

Great family fun

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a comfortable place to relax with friends and family this is it. Easy access off the main roads, great views, sledding right outside are a few things that stood out.

We had a group from ages 40-1 and everyone enjoyed themselves. Toys and games for the young kids, Netflix for tv time, and the ping pong table were highlights of the house itself.

Don't rent this house if you're expecting a pricey 5 star hotel luxury spa experience but for the price this is a great place. Thanks Maggie.

Great location, plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

A group of 12 of us (8 adults and 4 kids under the age of 7) stayed here May 2012. The location is great, right off of rt. 9 about 5 minutes from downtown Wilmington and close to Mt Snow. We had plenty of room for the whole party and were able to spread out on the three different levels, including the deck which has a fantastic view of Mt Snow.

The loft has a good selection of toys for little ones, puzzles, games etc. No problems with using the wifi and it was definitely used by most of the adults via smartphones and ipads throughout the weekend.

The only item I would mention if you have children is that the yard is very steep so would not recommend having them play outside in the backyard. This was no problem for us, the kids in our group played in the loft and on the deck and had plenty of space to run around.

We did go out on Fri night to the Mapleleaf Brewery in downtown Wilimington and were not impressed with the service (very slow). I would be willing to give them the benefit of the doubt since it was the Tough Mudder weekend, but we were there when the place was only half full and it still took 15 minutes to get our first drink order of only 2 drinks. And it only got worse from there. Food was ok, beer selection likewise. We cooked at the house rest of the weekend and had plenty of pots/pans etc for everything we cooked.

Great House - Fabulous Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house with a group of friends for a short ski weekend. It is a lovely home and was perfect for our group. The pictures definitely do not do it justice. Most of us have small children, and the house was even stocked with toys. Perfect for our weekend getaway - lots of natural warmth with the wood burning stove and fireplace downstairs. There are plenty of sheets, towels and pillows as well as many kitchen tools for easy cooking. We also had a serious ping-pong competition and had a blast!

Could have been better!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time except for snow conditions being really bad. House was very clean. Directions to home were a bit confusing but we found it. House needs more than 1 TV. currently only has 1 TV in LR but none in the game room or any of the bedrooms. House all needs better detail of bed lay out. Approx 12miles to Mount Snow, which is not what the description said either. House was nice, but def. not what we expected or as described on website.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes the house only has one TV and we have never had a negative comment about it, but perhaps we should consider adding another downstairs - actually this may be a great idea! Looking back at the website I noticed that the bed layout and details are very well described but I am happy to rewrite them to make even clearer. Thanks for your update on the distance to Mt.Snow as we listed 15 miles and you corrected us with 12 miles. This is a bonus! Yes unfortunately GPS does confuse directions in that area and that is why I email precise driving directions. Unfortunately you arrived late at night and I can appreciate your confusion. Best regards. Maggie

Perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this house! We had 10 adults (5 couples) and still had plenty of privacy and comfort. The house has a relaxing quality and was the perfect getaway for a skiing/snowboarding weekend. And the wood-burning stove was so warm and comforting. It was also nice that the grocery store was near by, because we spent a lot of time in the kitchen as well - cooking and baking. We absolutely loved our stay and would recommend it for a relaxing vacation.

About Maggie or Alex Pizzochero

We are a family with 3 kids, 2 are in their teens. We live full time in Chelmsford MA and take frequent trips to VT where we vacation throughout the year. It is our favorite place to meet up with friends and socialize.

Maggie or Alex Pizzochero purchased this house in 2009

Why Maggie or Alex Pizzochero chose Wilmington

Our 3 kids fell in love with the house as soon as they walked in. My husband and I love the spectacular views from the deck and the multilevel spacious feel to the house. The short walk to the lake is great for family trips to the beach. We use the lake alot to swim, kayak and some like to fish there as well. The sandy beach is a great place to relax and unwind and have a pick nick.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views of Mt. Snow and the valley

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Maggie!!

We had a fantastic time at your house!

Everybody had a comfortable place to sleep. Being city kids, we really appreciated and enjoyed the fireplace. It was so nice and cozy. The house was easy enough to get to and we had a nice view from the balcony, which we really enjoyed. The kitchen was pretty well equipped which made it easy for us as we cooked our own dinners. My only suggestion is to maybe switch to a higher wattage bulb for the light directly above the dining table. Otherwise, everything else was absolutely perfect for us! :)

We really appreciate you sharing your house with us. And we will look forward to staying there again.

Thanks so much Maggie & Alex!

Cheers :D
