About the property

7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 19-25 in beds)

The best day of the season may have been April 8th as we got a foot of Powder. Expecting another 5-8 inches on Thursday. Mt now is open through this weekend if you want to get out one more time before Spring. This past week it was more like February than April.

We had record breaking dumps of FRESHIES, and expect more this week, April is shaping up to be a great month for SNOW. I've already got 147 days on the mountain this season.

Ski Chalet with Scenic views of the valley and Mt Snow. The perfect house for a family get together, golf weekend, Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, Fantasy Drafts, Tough Mudder, Winery Tours, Family reunions or any other reason to get a good group of friends/family all in one place. The house is available for weekend, weekly or weekday rentals. Check my calendar for availability.

There are 11 HD TV's through out the house.

Including 3 in the living room (65", 32" & 32") perfect for watching the NFL & MLB package, Soccer or March Madness. You can enjoy multiple shows or watch a movie on the big screen and you won't miss any games.

The House has:

7 bedrooms (sleeps 19-25 people in beds)

5 full bathrooms

Full kitchen with all newer appliances

Billiards Room with Darts and HD Cable TV

3 HD TVs in the Living Room with Direct TV

5 other rooms with Cable and HD TV's

Large Jacuzzi that has Direct TV on 36" HDTV with stereo

A private driveway that can accommodate 15-20 cars

Short distance to restaurants and ski resort

The house is located a 1/2 mile from the base of Mt Snow and is a 15 min drive to the center of downtown Wilmington. The house is close to Stratton, Bromley, Magic and Okemo. It is very charming and nicely decorated.

Thanks for checking out the house and I look forward to accommodating you and your group!

**I can get DISCOUNTED LIFT TICKETS if needed.**

If I have the order early enough I can have the tickets the night before.

You can add days on to the front or back of weekends if they are open. The house can be rented Monday-Friday's as well.

About Bernie

I was born and raised in Chatham, NJ.

I graduated from the University of Connecticut.

I Skied/Boarded 130 days in 2016, 138 days in 2017, and I am on track for 150 this season.

I like to watch sports almost as much as I like playing them.

During the Winter I will be in the lower unit to help with any issues, take care of the hot tub, get you discounted lift tickets and help in any other way I can. If you don't need me you won't even know I'm there.

In the Summer I won't be on the premises, but will be available by phone. Most times I will have someone local to help out if necessary.

Bernie purchased this house in 2000

Why Bernie chose West Dover

Unlike a hotel where you pretty much stay in your room, the common areas of my house make the weekend as far as I'm concerned. It's great to watch sports, a movie, or play games. Great for big family gatherings or getting together with friends. I've hosted Wedding parties, Wineries Weekends, Bachelor & Bachelorette parties, Golf outings, Tough Mudders, Family reunions, College Reunions as well as people who like to ski. The large backyard can accommodate multiple games as well as a fire pit.

What makes this house unique

Huge yard with plenty of games.

Discounted lift tickets

Close to Mt Snow (1/2 mile away)

Who needs a fancy hotel where everyone is separated? My house has the best of both worlds… Plenty of space to hang out as a group, but enough space to be by yourself.

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Had a bachelor party that filled every bed in the place. The house is designed perfectly for events like this. All the guys loved the decor. Bernie provided a ton of yard games and other forms of entertainment. All in all, a great time. Would highly recommend the place to anyone looking to do something similar with a large group.

The Perfect Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Every year our club at RPI has an invitational cabin trip, but this has been the best one yet. We could not have been more pleased with Bernie's accommodations and the wonderful atmosphere of his chalet. Everyone was excited to explore the maze-like interior with different themes in every room. The outdoor accommodations were fantastic, as we used the firepit both nights and the outdoor game sets during the day. The kitchen was fully equipped to feed the entire group. The leaves were just starting to turn, making for a beautiful landscape and the location is also prime for day-trips throughout Southern VT. You will be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable, unique cabin no matter what the reason for your visit.

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than everything we expected. We had every bed filled and everyone that came was thrilled when they got there and checked the place out. Owner of the house was great and accommodating and allowed us to get in early. We will definitely be back.

Perfect bachelor party house

  • 5 of 5

We were at this house for a bachelor party in mid-June, and it couldn't have been more perfect for the occasion. More than enough space/bedrooms, great game room, gas grill, and huge yard stocked with games. Bernie was extremely helpful throughout. Will definitely try to make it back!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house this past weekend, July 15-18, and couldn't have had a better experience. I had a bachelor party group of 18, and this house had more than enough space and sleeping room to fit us all comfortably. The yard is perfect for BBQ and outdoor lawn games. We went white water rafting 45 minutes away in Charlemont and Cliff Jumping 30 minutes away in Halifax. I would highly recommend this place. Bernie, the owner, is very easy to deal with and a very nice man. Had a great time.

Bachelor Party Central

  • 5 of 5

I was a part of a group that rented this house in 2009 for a ski weekend. We had a blast then and the house was even better than I remembered it 6 years ago. We wanted a place to celebrate our friends bachelor party. We've all done Vegas before, we just wanted somewhere we could all hang out, throw some bags and drink some beers! The bachelor is a huge sports fan, which is why I had to track down this house. The owner even let us stay later on Sunday to watch all the NFL games. We got everything we wanted and more! I highly recommend this place for a guys weekend! The boys are still talking about it.
