The house is a true ski house built in 1971 with old style ski house charm, one of the first true ski houses at Burke Mountain, with amazing views of Willoughby Gap. The highest house on the mountain with on/ off access both biking and skiing. The most incredible field stone fireplace to warm you up after a day. Mountain Bikers could not ask for a better start to the day with trailhead start from three of Kingdom Trails best downhill runs only a 2 minute peddle away. Ski Tune and bike repair area, exterior bike washing station and repair area. Great deck to share stories about the days events riding the Kingdom Trails. Brand new state of the art Kitchen with soapstone counter tops and wood from the local region making up the cabinets.
Years ago we were introduced to Brett’s house and Burke Mtn. as a ski destination. However in the past year I have been introduced to the Summer months and now it is difficult to pick a favorite season!
The house has everything you could ask for: a cozy great room centered around a an enormous fieldstone fireplace, an open plan gourmet kitchen tailor made for epic family gatherings, a foosball table for the kids (and adults!) and gorgeous views of sunsets over Willoughby Notch.
In the Summer: aside from hiking trails just steps out the front door, the house is situated in the middle of Vermont’s Kingdom Trails network. There’s fantastic scenery and over 100 miles of maintained mountain biking trails catering to all levels. After a full day of riding, après biking at the Tiki Bar in downtown East Burke under the setting sun can’t be beat!
In the Winter: hands-down, staying slope-side is the greatest way to spend a family ski vacation (no packing & unpacking the car with the kids’ gear!) The house is ski-in / ski-out, and Burke Mtn.’s varied terrain has something for everyone. Just up the hill from the house is the mountain’s local watering hole (Bear Den) where you can grab a drink and hear local music amongst Burke's welcoming, tight-knit skiing community. Then it’s a short ski home to end the day with a relaxing family meal around the rustic farmer’s table and doze-off by the fireplace. Heaven!
We stayed for a weekend of mountain biking, couldn't have asked for a better rental. The view is spectacular, and the house has everything we needed, even a bike wash station. Love the large screen TV, the big kitchen, the fireplace and fooz ball.
We stayed there as a group of 7 mountain bikers.
We had a great week-end. The view is amazing from the balcony.
Kitchen has everything, really functionnal.
Big screen TV, WiFi, doc station for iPhone...
There is a lot of storage for our bikes inside the mechanical room.
The trails starts right from the chalet. (up and down)
Will be booking again next year!
Chalet très agréable, chaleureux, éclairé et fonctionnel. L'ambiance est idéale pour un groupe d'amis avec une zone cuisinette très moderne, la salon cathédral doté d'un superbe foyer et la possibilité de laisser tous le stock de vélo au sous-sol via une porte indépendante.
Situé en milieu de montagne, vous avez également accès directement aux pistes de vélo en montagne.
Seul petit inconvénient pour ceux qui veulent rouler dans les Kingdom Trails, idéalement laisser un véhicule au village pour éviter les 4 km de montée par la route pour revenir au chalet... peu significatif toutefois.
Profitez-en aussi !
Great stay with my gang of MTB'ers, room for everyone, big kitchen for communal meals, excellent fireplace for warming up, foosball table for impromptu tournaments, Apple TV for watching Redbull Rampage, and a bike washing station for hosing down your muddy steed after a long day on the trails. Fantastic time had by all and look forward to doing it again next year.
Slope side on/off to Burke Mountain skiing and Trail side to Kingdom Trails “Knightslayer”, be the first on in the morning from the top. This is one of the first homes built trail side in Burke Mountain with amazing views, and probably the best fireplace in Vermont and view of the Gap.
Other Activities: Snowshoeing, Nordic Skiing, Relaxing
