About Jack and Gayle Sanders

We have enjoyed family vacations and ski weekends in our Waterville Valley home for over three decades - skiing, playing tennis, hiking and more, all in this unique mountain resort community. Now with our children grown and living as far away as the West Coast, it is time to share our mountain home with adventurous travelers.

Jack and Gayle Sanders purchased this house in 1978

Why Jack and Gayle Sanders chose Waterville Valley Area

Our Waterville Valley house on Snow's Mountain has served our family well. It has plenty of room for active kids and is the perfect home base for all seasons with tennis courts at the bottom of the street, the Waterville Valley BBTS Training Center and Bag Jump at the base of Snow's Mountain and a hiking trail that goes right up our driveway. You can even access the Criterion cross country trail right below our driveway.

What makes this house unique

An original, post and beam, Yankee Barn home, our Waterville Valley home fits right in with its mountain setting. Old barn timbers and soaring windows looking out over the valley create a special feeling. You know that you're not back home in the city or suburbs.

Great place to stay while in the Valley.....

  • 5 of 5

Our family descended into the Valley to celebrate my mom's 90th birthday, so finding a comfortable house with lots of room was very important for us. This house was the answer for us. Everything we needed for our stay was there....lots of beds, plenty of room, well equipped kitchen and easy access to trails for hiking to work off all the food we ate. I would recommend these accommodations to anyone who is planning a visit to Waterville Valley.

Owner's Response: How wonderful that your family stayed together in comfort and celebrated your Mom's special birthday. We are continuously making improvements like our newly renovated kitchen. It is very gratifying to learn that our efforts make a difference. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the hiking. Snow's Mountain Trail goes right up our driveway making it hard to resist.

Snows Mountain House. A lovely and spacious mountain retreat

  • 4 of 5

My family has enjoyed spending Columbus day weekend for the last few years at Snows Mountain House and hope to continue to do so.

The property is large and comfortable and very clean and cozy. The amenities are more than ample.

Jack and Gayle are a delightful and gracious couple. They always leave a pineapple as a welcoming gesture.

Owner's Response: It has been a pleasure for us to have you and your family choose Snow's Mountain House for your annual get-together getaway. You prove that our house is big enough for grandparents, parents and kids to enjoy extended time together. The wooded, mountain setting is nature's playground for kids, in addition to all that Waterville Valley and the White Mountains have to offer. We look forward to your return this fall. Kitchen renovations have been completed. We think you will enjoy home cooked meals even more with the fabulous new custom cabinets. Thanks for being such gracious guests.

Great Mountain House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great mountain house. The style is fantastic, well done! The interior is decorated well, and it was very clean. The only thing is the stove could be updated, it works, but it's slow and takes a patient touch. The owner put thought into this rental, and it truly makes your visit easy, comfortable, and enjoyable.

Family fun in the snow

  • 5 of 5

We invited our family from Boston area for some fun in the snow during February vacation. Because there were 8 of us, we wanted to find a place that would be roomy and cozy. Well, Snow's Mountain was exactly what we were looking for! The house has plenty of open space (kitchen, dining rooms, and living room) along with plenty of bedrooms. The location is convenient to Nordic skiing trails (just down the street), hiking/snowshoeing (right behind the house) and Alpine skiing (about 10 minute drive). After a day of fun in the snow, we all enjoyed kicking back in front of the fireplace. What a wonderful "home away from home"! Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Excellent Mountain / Ski House

  • 5 of 5

Snow's Mountain House is perfect for a short or longer term stay. It is clean, well-maintained, spacious yet cozy and is ideally located in quiet woodland. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 3 kids, ages 13, 10 and 8, which were easily accommodated by this 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom house. The beds are very comfortable and the whole house is well heated. We particularly enjoyed the fact that the house was large enough for us to spread out and relax and enjoy the lounge area with wood stove and large brick fireplace and look out over the balcony at the valley and ski area beyond. The kitchen and bathrooms are well equipped and everything works! The owners are very easy to work with and very helpful. I highly recommend Snow's Mountain House.

Summer in Waterville

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house for a family getaway! It is very well equipped and comfortable for a large group. Great location near the center of the complex, yet very quiet. We had a wonderful trip and hope to do it again!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Karen. We're so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay. It is so peaceful at the house, yet the activities of Town Square are close by. Summertime in the mountains is lovely, but we are already thinking of the first snowfall and great skiing next winter.
