This recently finished home is created for valued getaway time, and access to local mountain resort activity. This is a special location, a short climb off rte. 100, about five miles south of rte. 4, and the Killington gondola. Okemo mountain is not far, back down rte. 100, and Echo lake is close by.
Surrounded by pines and birches, the many windows, including a living room front over two stories in height, provide picturesque woodsy views. This is a resort home in a sporty location.
Special selection of materials included a large central floor area of Vermont slate, surrounded by dark stained oak with radiant floor heat. Each bedroom and bath display designer attention to quality and detail. Each of the two larger bedrooms has a queen size bed. The third bedroom has two twin beds.
A spacious and comfortable dining area was planned for special meals, and the kitchen, along with all new appliances, features cookware and dishes chosen for owner use, uncommon in rental property.
The living room area has 32 ' HD television, with a wide Direct TV package. There is five speaker surround sound stereo. And the washer/ dryer is available for guest use.
So, enjoy this home as an owner would, and make several hours on-site part of your stay.

I have done real estate work centered around property management for over thirty years, including work in several ski resorts. For about ten years I owned and operated a hotel, and short-term rental business in Aspen, CO.
Stuart Potter purchased this house in 2009
I grew up Greenwich, CT. My family spent winter weekends and school vacations at Killington, along with family friends with the same routine. I became involved in this property before subdividing the land, selling lots, and designing and building this home. Over the years, I have been, off and on, a resident, part-time resident, and vacationer in the area, since shortly after Killington first opened.
This property is my home for about three weeks at the beginning of the ski season, and for the same period of time at the end of the season. On a daily basis, I am able to ski, maintain a base for work, and renew contact, mostly at area restaurants, with many lifelong friends.
What a great 4 day weekend the pictures definitely don't do it justice - a beautiful home indeed. Very clean and well kept. Short drive to killington. Everything was perfect - my only downfall was no fireplace and no hot tub.
Overall everything was great and we all enjoyed this home and the weekend.
Thank you for everything Stuart. You were more than accommodating.
Bathroom toilet downstairs a mess....kitchen stove full of grease, downstairs floors had stains and in addition 2 days later we became aware of a rat. I woke up at 3am and 5am to the noise of a rat inside the house. Owners' response was not to worry it will go away with deterrents on the house....The kitchen sink had a leak, 2 out of the 3 kitchen lights were not working. I had a video and pictures to support this. I just want this person to do something about this because the next guest will very likely have the same issues.
We had a great experience at this house! We were here with our two children and friends from college (and their two children). There was plenty of space for all of us and the space was very comfortable. The pictures absolutely do not do it justice! Wifi, satellite TV, laundry and a fully equipped kitchen were a huge plus!
The only thing that would make this house better (if it's even possible) would be shades/curtains on the bedroom windows and deck furniture for outdoor eating/hanging.
3 couples (6 of us) had a fantastic week stay at this cabin. Stuart was incredibly accommodating, the cabin had everything that we needed, and location is perfect. Short drive to Killington Gondola, Long Trail Brewery, ski shows, etc.!
Would def go back again!
We had a great time at your place. The location was beautiful and very convient only a few minutes to Killington and Wodstock. Stewart , thanks again for all your help.
Excellent property for a weekend ski trip to Killington - minutes to the Skyeship Gondola. I could even see using this for a trip to Okemo if you wanted. Very well maintained with modern appliances. Nice master bedroom + bath combo. Only downfall (minor) is that one has to drive to the main access road for dining/nightlife. Could really use a hot tub for a couples getaway (albeit one can understand the potential for maintenance w/ these).
Centrally located for all area destinations and year-round activities, this home is an easy 11 mi. drive north of the town of Ludlow at the base of Okemo Mountain, and a 5 mi. drive to the Killington Skyeship gondola, continuing up rte. 100. Bear Mountain an the other Killington base lodges are a short drive up the Killington East Road from there.
At the base of the road, .3 mi. downhill, rte. 100 skirts Echo Lake. During the summer season access to swimming, canoeing, etc. is nearby, and the immediate area offers scenic hiking and biking routes. Ludlow has shopping, and several excellent restauant choices. The towns of Plymouth, by the historic Coolidge home, Woodstock, Queechee, and others noted for Inns, antiques, other favorites of Vermont shopping are easily reachable, without traffic, by scenic state highway.
All of Killington, including Bear Mtn. Snowshed, and the Killington Golf course via the Killington East road that originates at the Skyeship gondola parking area, is close by. Many regular locations for music, and outdoor festivals are easily accessed. This is a quality central location for getting to activities in all directions, for summer and fall as well as winter.
