About Kate

We purchased our first studio condo at the base of Mt. Snow in 2001 to enjoy family vacations, hiking and skiing. In 2005 our daughter attended college nearby and worked at the mountain. We decided it was time to upgrade to a larger 1 bedroom condo for increased space.

Why Kate chose Mount Snow Area

We realized how much we enjoyed spending time in the Mt. Snow area and decided to purchase a home where we could all spend time together and have room to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Our home is in a great four season resort. There's hiking, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, tennis, swimming, and so much more! There's something for everyone, every season!

Our home is warm and inviting and meticulously kept. Start your day with a cup of coffee relaxing in the sun room. End your day grilling on the large deck or lounging in hammock with a good book. You'll be surrounded by the quiet and serene forest. Whatever your pleasure, enjoy it from our Vermont country home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kate-- Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your place in Vermont! It was comfortable, cozy and we enjoyed it so much. We definitely will keep you in mind for another family get together. It's a nice half way drive for us to meet our son. The mud wasn't so bad. We came home to tons of mud in Old Forge and a lake in our back yard!! It was a brutal winter and it's going to be a long messy mud season!

Thank you again.

Perfect get away home!

  • 5 of 5

Went to this home for a weekend of skiing at mount snow. Perfect distance from the mountain. We weren't sure what to expect but the house was more than what we could ask for. House had everything we needed from cooking supplies to board games to firewood. The owner, Kate, was more than helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. Would recommend this house to anyone and will definitely rent from this house again.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Presidents Day weekend here and had great time. We were two families with three young children (7, 3, and 0yr old), and the stay couldn't have been more comfortable. We skied in Mt. Snow one day, but the other days were way too cold to go to the mountain, so instead, we enjoyed the indoor swimming pool, hot tub, billiard, and ping pong at the clubhouse. It was perfect for a -15 degree weather day. The ping pong table in the basement of the house was also a hit with a 7 years old. Kitchen was clean and well stocked with knives, pots and pans, and simple dishes, making eating-in easy and enjoyable, too. The owner Kate was very responsive and helpful - even promptly shipping a cellphone charger I left back to me! Thank you very much for our wonderful stay.

"Welcome Home!"

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay here. The house was beautiful. Our family absolutely loved it. It was a short drive to town to enjoy the local shops and restaurants. It is less than 10 minutes. The view was fantastic and we enjoyed our morning coffee out on the enclosed sun-porch. There was tons of firewood and we felt right at home. The view from the house was beautiful as the location is very scenic. Kate took the time to make sure our stay was comfortable and responded promptly to any questions. Thank you so very much for your hospitality!!! You truly made your house our home. I would highly recommend this house to others and I would be happy to return there in the future. 

Ideal VT Home

  • 5 of 5

After owning a place not more than five minutes away for many years, we were excited to return to the Mt. Snow area with family visiting from the Midwest. Kate's home was absolutely perfect for four adults, four teenagers and a toddler. It was warm, cozy and very well appointed. I rented my former condo on VRBO for several years and understand the challenges in creating a seasonal rental property that is also your second home. It was perfect for relaxing after long days on the mountain. We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen and even used the BBQ in Dec! The ping pong table in the basement was a hit. And there was swimming/hot tub, etc.. a short drive away at the community clubhouse. I highly recommend this home and plan on returning again. A+ Kate.

Five Stars!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 adults, 2 young children) loved our stay at this fantastic home. It was well stocked, very clean, and super cozy. From the good size bedrooms and Vermont-style decor, to the wood fireplace and cozy carpeted floors (which were in excellent condition)...this home felt like our little home away from home. It was so nice to come "home" after a day of skiing (Mt. Snow is a quick 15 minute drive!) or sightseeing and just relax and make some great family ski trip memories. Kate was an absolute pleasure to work with - very nice and very responsive to any question that I had leading up to our stay. She even called the night of our arrival to check in and see how we were doing and if we had any further questions. In all the years I've rented homes, I've never had an owner who was so attentive. Thank you Kate for being so wonderful to work with and for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We will absolutely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jaime, for those wonderful words. We take pride in making our home an enjoyable experience for our vacationing guests. As vacation home renters ourselves, we know how important it is to be relaxed and comfortable when you return from a busy day. Our convenient location to downtown Wilmington, Mt. Snow and the surrounding lakes and golfing only adds to the experience any time of year. We look forward to seeing you again!
