Overview

Killington Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

The Matterhorn House offers a one-of-a-kind Vermont ski vacation experience, arguably boasting some of the most incredible mountain views of any property in all of the resort! The private slopeside setting on the Great Eastern ski trail (service by the Killington Skyeship Gondola) has inspired an interior design commitment that compliments the natural beauty of the home. And, of course, world class amenities and award winning customer support.

The eight person hot tub spa on your deck offers spectacular mountain views!! You can watch the skiers go by the house all day long and, at the end of the day, enjoy a memorable mountain experience with a parade of snow cats. There is a large cedar sauna inside of the house and the game room offers a slate pool table, a foosball table and darts. There is high speed wireless Internet and premium cable TV programming to support all your après ski needs. The oversized, wood burning fireplace is spectacular and we supply all the wood you can burn, including fire starters. We provide all bed, bath and hot tub linens, plus daily trash service, daily hot tub cleaning service and a whole host of property support services that allow you to focus on your visit. We'll manage all of the details!

The furniture, electronics and appointments are all first class. The full size kitchen is completely set up for your entertaining pleasures (pots & pans, glass wear, plate wear and flat wear) and the dinning room table is large enough for the entire group. The BBQ grill on your deck is connected to the gas supply of the house, and there is a washer & a dryer inside of the home. The Matterhorn was professionally designed and decorated with high end furniture and fixtures. The stereo system is ipod compatible.

For your convenience, we provide all soaps, detergents and paper products, as well as 24 hour occupancy support that assures a quality, hassle free vacation experience! This slopeside property is one-of-a-kind and is located on the number one novice ski trail in all of Killington and supported by the Killington Skyeship (eight person, high speed and HEATED!) Gondola!

Matterhorn House

  • 4 of 5

Nice house with plenty of room. A bit older. Not quite what it's hyped up to be on the website, but definitely workable.

Worst Winter Cottage Experience Ever

  • 1 of 5

My group of friends and I visit roughly 3-4 different ski resorts in North American every winter, we are very well traveled and very experienced with ski cottage rentals. Although the cottage was nice, the service was by far the worst we have ever experienced. As soon they had our money for the reservation they stopped answering our phone calls and replying to our emails. We had a group of 14 guests, and stayed in a cottage without a working dishwasher and a broken coffee machine. Although we called multiple times they never came to fix the issues. They also lied to us about the ski in ski out feature. The backside of the mountain where the cottage is located does not open till January 1st every year. Even though we asked them on the phone, they lied to us and told us it is a ski in ski out cottage. Terrible management and very poor service for such a high price, definitely not recommended.

Owner's Response: Your group checked into the Matterhorn House on the night of 12/17/14 and the next morning at 6:30am, I personally noticed that you had the front door of the Matterhorn House pinned in the "wide open" position. I was concerned given the time of morning and the fact that it was approximately 7 degrees (F) outside. I immediately walked up to the front door of the house and further discovered that the sliding glass door on the other side of the house was "wide open" as well. I announced myself several times at the front door and no one responded. When no one responded, I walked through the house in an effort to close the doors to protect the house from the freezing temperatures and discovered multiple signs of cigarette smoking that was done inside of the house prior to my arrival. No doubt your group opened up the front door and sliding glass door to "air out" the house, before everyone passed out... It looked like you had a very fun party inside of the Matterhorn House that night, as evidenced by all of the empty beer bottles and alcohol bottles and imported DJ sound equipment, however, the no smoking clause in our rental contract is not flexible. I am disappointed and surprised that seeing how your entire group was from Canada that you would actually leave house doors wide open to cover up your smoking inside of the house. Your group's behavior of leaving house windows open, while smoking inside of the house, continued throughout your stay... You also "surprised us" with your dog. That was not agreed to in your rental contract prior to your arrival. When I observed dog urine and feces on my floors of the Matterhorn House the morning of the "Wide Open Doors Event", well, I think that, well, your lack of respect for the property is unfortunate. The rental contract speaks to these issues. My inspection, verified by my staff and supporting evidence speaks to my discovery of your default under the terms of the rental contract that we entered into and agreed to prior to your arrival. Hopefully your group had fun. As a result of the issues outlined above, your security deposit is being forfeited.

Best House on the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Matterhorn now many times and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Great location, spectacular views, wonderful amenities, all you could ask for to make the most of your ski trip and the staff are the best. Loved every minute of it.

Regular Trailside guest

  • 5 of 5

I Just got back from our 15th stay at Trailside Village and will definitely be returning next year for our 16th. Everything you can think of was provided from the well stocked wood pile, with starters, to the luxurious linens and very well stocked kitchen. The hot tub, the electronics, the views, the service! Everything was perfect!!

Amazin Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was stunned from the views from the house. Nice place to spend time with friends and family. Plenty of room for everybody. The house was nice and clean. The staff was very helpful and assisting. Having a private hot-tub on the deck was a plus. The kids enjoyed the full size pool table in the game room. Overall we had a great time and wonderful experience. Definitely we will come back again.
