About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 Baths Plus Den/Game Room Sleeps 8, Ski Mt. Views And Riverfront

The River House is all about location with this adorable chalet located one mile (2 min car ride!) from Mount Snow in West Dover, Vermont and only 15-20 minutes from Stratton Ski Resort. This is an amazing vacation rental for any season. In the winter, step out onto your front porch for beautiful and majestic views of Mount Snow. The 'Moover', which is the free transportation system, will pick you up close by the house! No need to even drive to the mountain! In spring and summer, enjoy the soothing sounds of the river that passes right under the deck off the back of the home. You can cool off and take a refreshing dip in the river, or at night, you can simply relax with friends near the fire pit in the yard. The autumn leaves put on a spectacular show, and the amazing hiking trails (within walking distance) are a simple way to enjoy the foliage. There are safe paths for rollerblading, running, or biking trails across the street from the home. The Valley Trails, Crosstown Trails, and Mount Snow trailheads are all very close to the house. Fine dining, casual dining, and nightlife are all within walking distance as well. So whether you're seeking a relaxing or adventure filled vacation, The River House is the perfect spot to be your home away from home! Great for couples, a group of friends or families.

A Perfect Meet-Up Location

  • 5 of 5

Caught up with old friends (with kids). Great location and the River House had everything we needed. We spent most of our time at Mt. Snow and was very convenient to/from Mountain. Would rent again. Thank you Jess and Calla!

Adorable, convenient and clean cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay we had in West Dover! This home was the perfect retreat for the winter vacation we were looking for. We brought our kids from Florida to see snow for the first time, and we were so happy when we pulled up to the cottage. The house is cozy, clean and Calla and Jess were so accommodating and informative with what we needed to do to make our stay comfortable. The layout is perfect for a family with children because the downstairs area had two bedrooms, a den with TV, air hockey and darts, a bathroom and a mudroom entrance perfect for coming in and out of the cold snow. We ventured out to Mt. Snow each day and after a long day of fun winter activities, we lit the fireplace and relaxed. Some nights we ordered in and other nights we went out to eat. All activities that we did and restaurants we went to were within a 5 minute convenient! The Last Chair has excellent food and an attached game room for the kids to play in while the adults lingered and talked. TC's has specials each night and the food there was delicious too. We will certainly be back to West Dover and will plan to stay in the same house's a winner for sure!

River house is THE place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that I had looked into numerous houses to stay at in Vermont, and I can unequivocally say we made the right choice! Calla and Jess answered every question quickly prior to our arrival and even supplied a very detailed summary of restaurants and activities in the area. The house itself was perfect for my family of three and our friends' family of four to coexist comfortably. The house was decorated beautifully down to every detail. We all enjoyed swimming in the river, the fire pit and air hockey! We loved that we were so close to restaurants, shopping and assorted activities but yet felt very away from it all! Also, our deposit was returned within three days. We all can't wait to go time for even longer!

Convenient location, cozy house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for a girl's weekend in VT! The owners were very helpful and communicative leading up to the trip and we found the house to be clean and very well-maintained upon arrival. Some things we loved: the open layout upstairs, the fireplace and the proximity to Mount Snow/the shuttle. Overall, my friends and I were very happy with our stay. I recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay for a ski weekend this winter!
