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 Wilmington

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.

Very nice and cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice experience in Kate's home, everything worked perfectly. Located perfectly in the woods, about 10 - 15 minutes away from Mount Snow base. Nice fireplace and cozy beds.

Cozy little house, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in the evenings after morning skiing. We enjoyed the absolute cleanliness of the property, the wood fire (the draft of the horn wasn't great but enough to keep the smoke out), the games (ping pong - you may want to bring your own balls if you are a good player, and minute charades), a video (the AV equipment is good and easy to use - cables are already handy to plug-in you VGA or HDMI equipped laptop, or feed your own music through a standard 3.5 mm audio jack into the provided amplifier and speakers). The hostess was nice enough to check up on us on the phone and make sure that we are fine after we arrived. The instructions about what to do on check-in and check-out were clear and conveniently posted.

A very cozy home with everything you need to enjoy Vermont and be comfortable hanging around.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! We had an incredible time staying at your home and skiing. Everything about the house exceeded expectations. Fortunately the driveway was all plowed when we got there since there was a lot of snow fall during our trip. With all the snowing going on outside it was nice and cozy by the fireplace while we cooked dinner and played games. We all very much enjoyed our stay.

This had nothing to do with the housr, but wanted to mention the help from the community. The second night we were there a snow storm was just finishing up when we left Stratton Mountain (normally about 40 minutes away). This made for a pretty awful ride home, especially when we got to Chimney Top and our SUV got stuck spinning out on an ice covered hill and couldn't move. Fortunately a plow from the community came by and saw us. They laid sand down and plowed around us to help us get out of our situation and led us down another path back to the house. We could not have gotten out of there without them. They were so helpful and kind.

Anyways, the stay was great. My group of friends and myself hope we can get back up there some day and stay again.

Wonderful house in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Kate's place is clean, comfortable and spacious. The place suited our family gathering well, and we enjoyed the nearby towns and visited Mt Snow, about 20 min away, to asses our interest in skiing there during ski season. Looks like a lot of skiable terrain and nice layout.

The place had everything we needed, and Kate called to make sure we were all settled and having a good time.

Perfection is the only term that fits

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful home for several weeks. It was comfortable, and suited my every possible need, as well as being beautifully situated and beautifully decorated. The owner was very quick yo reply for any question or small problem. The kitchen was well stocked with just about any pot or utensil one might need. It was so nice to have a recliner in front of the fireplace and a TV in the bedroom. The surroundings were beautiful and wonderfully quiet. The bed was very comfortable and even had a selection of pillows that would suit anyone. The house was sparkling clean. Honestly, I hated to leave. I definitely will book this lovely home again. I would give it ten stars if I could!
