Awesome mountain chalet

Awesome Mountain Chalet

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This place is amazing! The moment I stepped out of the truck and heard the trickling water, I fell in love. The place has a lot of character and was perfect for our family and friends. The walk to the front door, the stone floored foyer, the exposed wooden beams and stone fireplace with the cast cantilevered concrete mantle all come together to create a truly special place.

We had a total of 7 but could've had 2 more in beds. Two living areas and both with views, efficient and warm heat, every amenity needed, excellent sheets, towels, utensils, it was all there. Nothing but good things to hear from us.

The sledding hill is a blast. Perfect pitch, long and right outside the door. We came off the mountain each day and the kids were as pumped to go home to sled and board down the hill as they were to hit the slopes each day.

John was great to work with and we will definitely be visiting again.

Perfect place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property with our two children (ages 8 and 10) and another couple and their two children (ages 10 and 12). We had a wonderful time / experience and found the home to be spacious and comfortable.

Everything is exactly as advertised. The pictures, while fine, do not convey the full charm and warmth of the house. My wife and I slept well in the upstairs bedroom (comfy bed, slept like a baby) while the kids were in a room with bunk-beds. The other couple was in the downstairs room while their kids slept on the 2nd floor, in an additional bedroom. As John points out in his description, it was great to have sheets and towels at our disposal.

When staying in another persons home, I am always sensitive to the kitchen and the living area. Specifically, will it have the pots, pans and other utensils required for a good breakfast before skiing and will there be a comfy spot to sit apres-ski? Happy to report a resounding yes for both.

My secret aspiration is to open a diner, so I am a bit finicky about have the right gear. Thankfully, i was not disappointed. Founds all the pots, pans, etc, that were need for a combination of omelette, bacon, and excellent egg sandwiches for breakfast before we headed out to Killington (under 15 minutes away).

At the end of the day, we stopped at the General Store (three minutes from the house) to buy two six-packs of Long Trail (purchased "Stand Out" and "Sick Day", to commemorate an awesome ski day. My buddy and I sat by the fire, drinking our beers and relishing the perfect day, while the kids played elsewhere. Could have easily spent the night in that exact spot, had it not before for dinner plans at another location.

All in all, it was a great place and made for a great weekend. Touching on a few of the 'tips for writing reviews' section:

- As detailed above, the listing description was accurate regarding location, layout, amenities, etc.

- The property was very clean and well maintained. You can tell the owners pour a lot of love and attention into this house.

- Did the owner provide good customer service? John couldn't have been nicer. He was more than responsive to any question I had, even provided guidance on which runs my kids should take (it was their first time at Killington).

- Would I recommend this property to a friend on relative. Definitely yes.

Have fun!

A group of us stayed at the house recently during a ski-weekend to Killington. The house is close to Killington, has beautful views and great accomodations. The owners were also a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend this house.

Amazing even in the Summer

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at this beautiful house two summers in a row and it is truly a slice of heaven! We absolutely LOVE it! We have small children and they also love the house itself and the field and creek out back. There's so much to do around Pittsfield, even in the summer months. The views are phenomenal, you can even see Killington mountain from the kitchen! I can't say enough great things about the property. It's always clean and completely ready for us. The design of the house is perfect for two large families, with quite a bit of room upstairs and on the bottom floor. The kitchen is great for cooking and the eating area is big enough to accommodate lots of people. We hope to continue visiting the area and plan to stay here again in the future. It's one of the most relaxing vacation rental properties I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy.

A Wonderful Family Christimas Weekend Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived on Friday night, exhausted from driving 5+ hours from NYC leading 2 other cars, my first impression was what a charming house under the dim light. Slowly unloading and walking towards the house passing a short "wooden bridge" and with the darkness surrounding the house, I felt like walking into a lake house. We have a party of 11 with varity ages (8 adults and 3 kids) and this house was perfect for us. The place was very clean with 5 bedrooms & 2 full baths, three levels with a well equiped kitchen and an incredible view.

The location of this house is about 10 minutes from Killington Ski Resort- Pico mountains which was the reason why I picked this place. On Saturday we had a great time at the mountain skiing/snowboarding and Sunday we left around 12:30pm trying to beat the blizzard which dumped roughly about 16 inches in NYC. I also wanted to mention that we appreciate very much that John(Owner) was very considerate and offered us to stay an additional day due to the blizzard conditions.

All-in-all this is a wonderful place to stay for our weekend and my family and I would love to come back in the future. No Doubt this is a great place to escape from the city life...I highly recommend this place!

Great Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5

I had the privaledge of renting this house in February of 2010. It was a mix of couples, singles and all from a variety of ages. What an escape this place was from the great days of skiing we had. The house is located 15 to 25 minutes away from Killington and Pico. The house was very clean and was everything you would want for a mountainside chalet. Everyone had a great time and were very impressed with the accommodations because looks can be very deceiving. The house looks small on the outside but it easily fit 9 of us comfortably. I highly recommend this place and will be making plans to go back in 2011. Owners were GREAT to work with in setting up the weekend.
