West Dover House Rental Photos and Description

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.

This home is updated throughout! 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, Living room, Dining room, laundry and an additional living room/den/game room.

First Bedroom: Queen bed

Second Bedroom: Queen bed,

Third Bedroom: 1 full/queen and 1 bunk with two twins

Den: has a pull out twin bed in couch

Living Room: Brand New Sectional and loveseat

Sleeps 6-9 very comfortably in beds. Additional sleeping areas are downstairs den and pull out love seat in main living room.

Sorry no full season rentals. The longest consecutive rent we can accommodate is one month at a time. As we like to keep our home pristine and always maintain it once a month to keep it in tip top shape.

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!

River House

  • 4 of 5

House was perfect. It had all we needed for the weekend. We were able to walk to most of the places we needed for food or drink and if we needed to drive, everything was just minutes away. It was a great weekend and I would recommend the house to anyone looking for a centrally located house with plenty of room. If there is one downside, it would be the $125.00 cleaning fee. I understand that a fee must be added but I do not know any house cleaner that charges that amount, especially since we left the house in the same condition we entered it. $125.00 is pretty steep to empty dishwasher/small garbage pails..vacuum and tighten a bedspread..

Owner's Response: We're sorry you felt the cleaning fee was unfair. The fee was clearly advertised on our site, as well as in the rental agreement. The fee pays for sanitation of all bathrooms, kitchen, floors, etc. and also it pays for trash pick up and recycling. This is also the going rate for cleanings in this area. We strive to make the house as clean, organized, and comfortable as possible for all our guests. We hope you had a great time at the River House despite your feelings about the fee. -Calla and Jess

Cozy Ski-Lodge in perfect Mt. Snow location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the River House! Great location right off one of the main roads in West Dover, but still tucked away and private-feeling, especially with the back deck that looks into the woods and the river. Interior of the house was cozy, and decked out with extra stuff to do when people got home for the night (board games, Apple TV, air hockey, etc). Added bonus was the cool ski-themed decor (a coatrack made of skis, sleds on the walls, and a few exterior chairs made of skis). Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words and noticing the hard work we put into making the ski chalet theme with an updated and modern feel. Hope to have you back again for the festival next year!
