Vermont Condo in the Heart of Ski Country

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 0 - 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This well maintained and family friendly two bedroom condo located in the Mad River Valley is the perfect place for a winter getaway into the Green Mountains of Vermont. Enjoy the best that Vermont has to offer: easy access to both Sugarbush Resort and Mad River Glen Ski Area, cross country skiing and snowshoeing on the Catamount trails, snowmobiling on the VAST (Vermont Association of Snow Travelers) marked trails and more! Both Sugarbush and Mad River Glen have daycare available and outstanding ski school programs for adults and children of any level.

Centrally located makes for easy day trips to Burlington, Stowe, Waterbury, and other Vermont attractions. Less than an hour drive into Burlington provides all the shopping, restaurants and attractions, like the aquarium and Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, that the great little city has to offer.

There is always something available to do, but if you just want to put your feet up and relax, there is no better place than being in the heart of the Green Mountain State Forest.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do (Sorry, we do not entertain winter seasonal rentals).

About Christine

I have been coming up to Vermont for over 30 years for skiing and summer vacations. I raised four daughters, all who learned to ski at Sugarbush and Mad River Glen and who now bring their families up to enjoy the serenity of the Green Mountains.

Christine purchased this condo in 1996

Why Christine chose Waitsfield

After skiing many mountains throughout northern New England, I kept returning to the Sugarbush/Mad River area. I chose the Battleground for its central location to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen but also for the summer features it offered (swimming pool, tennis courts, playground, hiking trail access) which made it the perfect summer vacation spot with my daughters.

What makes this condo unique

Besides the easy access to skiing and hiking, it is the little gems of the property that my family loves - the easy hike up an old logging road to the beaver pond and seeing moose tracks, catching butterflies while picking wildflowers, the mountain streams where the kids would catch brook trout with their butterfly nets. This is a place where memories are made.

Perfect Ski Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Battleground #61 was awesome. The wood burning stove made us feel very cozy in the midst of a snow storm. This condo is a great location for ski bums. Just minutes from Sugarbush mountains and about an hour away from Smuggler's Notch. Would definitely stay here again.

ski trip

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location for skiing. Clean, well maintained and pleasant. Mad River Glen and Mt Ellen were around 4 miles away with Sugarbush about 7 or 8. We would gladly stay there again.

Wonderful location for ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at this condo. Beds were comfortable and towels generous. The wood stove was a nice treat. Everything was in good condition.

It's wonderfully positioned to enjoy Sugarbush and Mad River Glen and it was a easy commute to Burlington when we returned my oldest son to UVM.

We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Clean organized home perfect for a ski weekend.

The place was well equipped for us to hang out, cook, sleep, etc. Christine was easy to get ahold of and the location is great for both Lincoln and Mt. Ellen!

Where Family & Childhood Memories are Made!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our experience and stay at this wonderful, cozy and quintessential Vermont ski condo! We had high expectations based on our knowledge of the area and the outstanding reviews - and they were all exceeded.

First of all, we had seamless communications with the owners. They were prompt and detailed and answered all our questions. The transactions were smooth and timely. So check that box off now if it's something that is important to you! But while I'm on the subject, I have to note how much we appreciated the incredibly detailed information the owners transmitted to us about how to use virtually everything in the condo: wood burning stove, wifi, heater, trash and recycling, electricity, you name it. They left nothing to chance. We really appreciated the attention to detail regarding how to maximize and fully enjoy our stay at the condo.

But now for the fun stuff, the condo itself is awesome! I grew up staying in condos in the Mad River Valley and skiing at Mad River Glen every February. Now that we have kids that ski, I wanted to recreate that experience and pass it on. This cozy condo was the perfect place! The family space is centered around the family room with a vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove (did I mention how easy it was to use thanks to the instructions :-) But it is very open too. You can see all the kids from the kitchen and dining room. The two pullout futons are perfect in case your friends or nearby family pop over for the night. And the upstairs rooms and beds are comfortable and roomy!

One of the greatest things about this particular unit at the Battlegrounds is that it backs right up to the Mill Brook! That is unique. If you have young kids, it's perfect for exploring nature. When we we not skiing, we were back behind the condo watching the kiddos forming unforgettable memories along the stones and shore of the Mill Brook. While next winter's ice flows will probably knock down the many rock cairns my boys built along the shore, they can always dream about seeing them again next year.

We came at a perfect time in the early spring to enjoy both skiing at Sugarbush (Mad River was closed) and hiking along the brook. But midwinter would no doubt offer incredible snowshoeing right out the back deck. And if you need a few items, a general store and a supermarket are right down the road. We loved everything about this perfect Vermont condo and look forward to more stays in the years ahead.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I will have to look for your boys' stone cairns the next time we are up! We love walking along the creek when it is running low enough. Hope to see you again!

Cozy condo

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for skiing at MRG and Sugarbush. The condo had access to great snowshoeing and hiking trails. It was perfect for our week stay- with a fully stocked kitchen for cooking and plenty of comfy hang out space. We loved everything about it!
