Overview

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.

Family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for the use of your home during our family gathering to celebrate our sister.

The house accomidated us so that we could be together and be comfortable.

The outdoor space in the summer was perfect for gathering around the fire pit and on the large outdoor deck. Perfect place for family to gather for pot luck dinner.

Spectacular view of Mt Ellen and the property allowed for alot of privacy.

We were lucky enough to be sitting on the deck enjoying morning coffee when Mama Bear and her three cubs came past out back in the woods.

We were careful to keep all trash in mark cans and nothing outside so they just past by in am and were no problem but we did keep our distance.

I will say there are quiet a few stairs so it can be a challenge for some as it is a four story home. Thank you. It was a

beautiful summer weekend

Much bigger than the description

  • 5 of 5

This was a great set up for our large family reunion. There are a total of 5 very usable bedrooms spanning several floors. There is also a bedroom in the basement that can be used if needed. The views from the house are amazing and the location was great! Tobin was very easy to work with. We hope to return next year!

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

This place is excellent for large families and groups. Plenty of sleeping space for multiple guests and room for entertainment. Not far from Sugarbush Resort. There is a shuttle service that runs the main road in front of the place but unless you have clear roads and nice conditions they don't like to stop the bus on the hill so they won't pick you up, which would have made this place even better.

Perfect House For Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely perfect for anything you could want out of a group ski getaway. More than enough beds/space where no one felt crammed in and enough amenities to satisfy every person's needs. Cozy living room, large kitchen, grill, overall cleanliness are just a short list of all the good that comes with this house. Owner is extremely responsive and leaves clear directions for the house and making the stress of planning a vacation very easy. I would absolutely stay here again and my group would follow right behind. Not enough good words for this property. Careful driving up if you happen to hit some snow, which we did when we got to the mountain as the drive can get steep and blustery. Driving can get pretty crazy, but that made for some stellar conditions on the mountain! Deli/Market and bar located very close. Highly recommend!
