About Owner/Property Manager

Our Vermont home is one we wish to share with others. While we live in NY our dream is to eventually live in this home on a full time basis. In the mean time, we have chosen to share it with others so it can be enjoyed by many.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2010

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Sugarbush Mountain

This property is best of both worlds, privacy and proximity. You can take a short or long hike right outside your front door, or curl up in front of the fire with a good book. You can do all of this while have all the amenities at your finger tips and just a couple of miles a way.

What makes this house unique

The are of Mad River Valley is a homey place, where the folks are friendly and the food and activities are plentiful. Whether you are staying during the winter, fall, spring or summer season you can't go wrong with the Mad River Valley.

Perfect ski house close to MRG and Sugarbush

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house was perfect for our stay during MLK weekend. It's perfectly designed for skiers with a well sized mud room area for boots and coats. Beautifully furnished, great wood stove, excellent kitchen, and the hot tub was exceptional. We were two families, could have fit a third. Right off of downtown waitsfield and very short ride to MRG, Sugarbush or Mt. Ellen. Owners were great with solid communication and clear house rules. Wonderful experience.

Wonderful Vermont Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house has all that is advertised...and more. The beautiful photos can't even really do it justice. It was the perfect summer HQ from which to explore the SO many fun things to see and do in Vermont in August - I can only imagine what it must be like in ski season! Our family of five relaxed the minute we walked through the door. It has all the amenities you could possibly need. The owner and property manager were super friendly and helpful, enabling us to experience local things we might have sadly otherwise missed. To give you the truest idea of whether we would recommend it or not....our kids were already talking about winter breaks when we pulled out of the driveway. Guess we better start planning soon! : ) Huge thanks to our lovely hosts - it was a terrific summer getaway.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is on a secluded dirt road just minutes from town and Sugarbush/Mad River skiing. The house is very comfortable and clean. The main level is large with an open layout for entertaining. The upper level has three bedrooms and the lower level has a large bunk room. The hot tub is very nice and worth the extra fee. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you possibly need. The owners were very friendly and quick to reply. All and all, this is a great rental!

Great time in Vermont for Christmas!

  • 4 of 5

This place is great. It is amazingly peaceful and quiet on top of a hill. The boys had fun outside climbing the rock and exploring. The first floor is very spacious and open, great for hanging out after a ski day. The kitchen is well appointed, we enjoyed cooking and using the spices. The rest of the house is well laid out for 2-3 families with a chance to get some alone time. We enjoyed the new hot tub, a great addition to soothe sore ski muscles. Debbie was very helpful in providing background information and answering questions while we were there.

The area is beautiful, we skied both Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, and hiked up Lincoln Gap on Christmas Day. The Butcher on Bridge Road has amazing cheeses from the Von Trapp family. All in all, we had a great time and hope we are able to come back next year. Next time we will bring both skis AND snowshoes.
