About the property

3 large bedrooms & private bunk areas sleeps 12

Welcome to our beloved family home in the Mad River Valley. Our house has a sense of seclusion but is close to just about everything. The surrounding landscape, rock formations and views make this the ideal base camp for your next family adventure in Vermont.

The house has 3 large primary bedrooms each with a warm and comfortable queen size bed and each bedroom has a unique and beautiful view. The master suite has a private covered deck and an attached master bath with a heated Jacuzzi tub. The view from every room is spectacular. Most have views of the summit of Mt Ellen. Additionally, there are several private bunk areas, one with a queen bed and 2 with 2 twin beds each. So the house can comfortably sleep 12 people. The kitchen is equipped with high-grade stainless steel appliances including a Wolf range, dishwasher and built-in convection microwave. Counter tops are granite, butcher block and stainless steel. The house has multiple levels so different groups can congregate in separate areas. There is a library of children’s DVDs and several games for the young ones as well as a pool and ping-pong table in the basement game room.

The den features a wood burning stone fireplace, leather couches, a large screen TV and patio doors that open onto a covered porch with spectacular views of the mountain. We have basic cable during the ski & summer seasons and the television is equipped with Netflix and a DVD player. NetFlix and Hulu provide access to many shows and the Hulu account has Showtime added to it. Cable is provided only in the main TV room. There are numerous DVDs and videotapes for all ages. The living room has comfortable leather couches, a warm gas fireplace and great views of the mountain. There is a large deck outside the living room and dining area that is great for dining on our bistro tables during the warmer seasons. You can watch the sun rise behind the house from either the kitchen or living room and at days end watch it set behind Mt Ellen. You can also sit on the Adirondack chairs located on the covered front porch in any season while you cook supper on the outdoor grille or just take in the great alpine views. There is a laundry room in the basement.

The shuttle stop is approximately a 100 yard walk but since the house is located just off German Flats road midway between Sugarbush north and south, driving to either base area is less than 5 minutes. There is 1 full bath on the first floor and a guest bath on the second floor where the main bedrooms are located. (3 baths in all) The famed Catamount Trail which is a winter only trail designated for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing is a short hike from the house. Snow shoes are available on loan from the owner at no charge upon request.

Quality bed and bath linens are provided. All cutlery, dishes and cookware are provided. Firewood is also provided. There is a coffee maker and Keurig machine for hot beverages.

About Tobin Koch

After having a Sugarbush condo while my children were growing up, I decided to build a house where we could all gather as they grew into their adult lives. We love it here winter, summer and in between. A fantastic place for recreation and relaxation in a peaceful setting.

Tobin Koch purchased this house in 2000

Why Tobin Koch chose Sugarbush Mountain

This house provides all the comforts of home away from home. Everything you want to do in Vermont is nearby. The towns of Waitsfield and Warren are pure Vermont. You have a great sense of privacy but also a sense of not being too far out.

What makes this house unique

The views and the surrounding landscape really set this house apart. You get great views of the morning sunrise and of the sunset at days end. It is ideal for families who have children of different ages because it has several gathering areas on different levels of the house with games, video viewing areas and a pool table for the teens.

Quiet, comfortable stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a base to hike and explore the Vermont fall mountain foliage, and this house fit or needs perfectly. A quiet secluded multi-level home with all the modern conveniences in a beautiful setting. And although we never met the owner in person, he gave us good information to explore the area and responded quickly to our questions via email. I'd recommend this VRBO to any friend, especially if they were considering a winter venue for downhill skiing.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was all we could have hoped for! Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, a well outfitted kitchen! A giant private yard, great deck and fire pit. The location is great for skiing or dinner in town. Tobin was great to work with. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Summer in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable and well equipped. Mountain views were great and my daughter enjoyed picking wild berries around the property. Evenings on the deck and around the fire pit were relaxing after a day of hiking.

Secluded, comfortable, and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house. It was big and comfortable enough for several family members to stay, yet still had a cozy feel. The location itself was wonderful - private and secluded but still central to so many activities and restaurants within Waitsfield and beyond (Waterbury, Burlington, etc.). The owner was very responsive to questions before and during our stay, and he went above and beyond to prepare for us - including providing a pack and play for our toddler - so nice that we didn't have to pack ours - AND he installed a baby gate for the stairs. We loved sitting out on the large deck for our morning coffee or an evening drink. The game room downstairs was a little smaller than we anticipated but it was still adequate. We felt right at home at this house and would highly recommend it to other visitors who are considering a vacation in this area of Vermont! We would stay here again!

Highly recommend the Tob-Inn

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past March. Needless to say this has been a winter to forget thanks to el nino. But we lucked out with a great week of skiing. The house is spacious, clean, and is stocked with lots essentials including a crock pot (slow cooker). The location is great almost centered between Lincoln Peak (Sugarbush South) and Mount Ellen (Sugarbush North). The owner, Tobin, is friendly and very responsive to inquiries. There are nice options to entertain your guests. You have a nice covered porch with a grill if you want to hang outside. There is a fireplace in the living room. And a pool table downstairs. The bedding was comfortable too. I highly recommend. 5 stars!
