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.

We also provide a canoe for your to use at the nearby lakes. Just bring some tie downs for your roof rack.

Great time at the River House

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the River House during Thanksgiving weekend. We had 2 families (2 adults, 3 adults and one child) in our party and there was a decent amount of space in the house to accommodate all of us. The property is right by the river, and we enjoyed having a morning coffee on the deck while listening to the sounds of the water. Some of us even took advantage of the swimming hole, which is right next to the house! At night, we've enjoyed our time by the fireplace.

The house is just a couple of miles from Mt Snow and within short walking distance to Sticky Fingers Bakery (another great place to check out). Calla and Jess were very nice and were able to accommodate an early check-in for us as we were traveling with a baby. Thank you!

Beautiful house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Tabakas have supplied everything needed to just walk in and begin enjoying. We had a fire outside the kids loved. Then, we had a fire inside to relax and enjoy the warmth. I loved their binder of things to do - we used it a lot!

The river and the deck were used a lot, too.

It’s just a wonderful place. Thank you for letting us stay there!!!!

Love, all the Selfs - Eddie, Elaine, Derek,

Kayla, and their kids, Adrianna and Lexi. We will have treasured memories at The River House!

A great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

House was so comfortable and clean, we've been to homes where it wasn't well kept but this house really was spotless and had everything we needed. The town is very quaint, the major stores are in town which can be a 10-15 minutes drive. We grilled out on the porch and The river running right under the house was our favorite part, so picturesque, the kids really had a great time splashing around in there. And at night we just lit the fire pit and roasted some smores and just relaxed with the sounds of the water rolling in the background....a great weekend getaway.

Excellent fun filled family stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so well equipped with everything you need! Kids loved the bunk beds and we loved falling asleep to the sounds of the water outside. It was a great home base to plot and decipher clues while doing the Green Mountain Adventure. Challenge! First time doing the challenge and we solved it!! The Saloon was a perfect place for a tasty lunch. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
