Why Edmund Apostle chose West Dover

My extended family of friends and I are all very close. Some of us have been friends since grade school, some from middle school, and the rest from high school. After everyone went away to college most of us returned home and picked up right where our friendships left off. Ever since then we have been together monthly, weekly, or daily…. As much as our lives will permit. Every winter for the last 10 years we have always done our annual “friends ski trip”.

In 2008 we began staying at this house and fell in love the moment we walked in. Every year we always talked about how great it would be to own a ski house of our own (or this one) where we could always go as a group and spend quality time together. After staying at houses and condos all over Vermont, mainly at Mt Snow, Stratton and Okemo, this house was our favorite.

Early 2011 saw the tragic loss of one of our best friends who was killed by a drunk driver. Our friend Dave was vibrant, smart, funny, was always bringing people together, was always smiling and loved to snowboard among other things. Dave was part of our group from the very beginning and a fixture on any ski & board trip.

One of Dave’s newest ventures that he was very excited about was to purchase a rental property with his soon to be fiancé just outside of Boston and as he told us, “begin to create his empire” At the time of Dave’s passing he had an accepted offer, was financed and was only waiting to close.

In the spirit of Dave and his “empire” I decided “why not buy the house we always talked about and secure a place for me and my friends to come to year after year…. A place we all loved, and a place we have all shared so many great memories!” Calls were made, deals were struck and as they say, the rest was history!

What makes this house unique

Large open spaces, close to the slopes and plenty of room for everyone to be together! 6+ bedrooms for plenty of privacy.

Great house, Great location, Great owner

  • 5 of 5

Started a ski trip this year. The house is extremely close to Mt Snow, being within the access road as listed. We had a group of 15 adults which the house accommodated. The house has a LOT of space; the great room is definitely enough room for everyone to hang around, playing games, etc. The hot tub was a great amenity to have after skiing. We are very satisfied with booking this listing.

The owner, Ed, is very responsive and easy to contact with any questions. Speedy return of security deposit. Thanks for a great weekend, we look forward to coming back.

Great gathering place for extended family!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered here to be together for my parents 65th wedding anniversary! The house was spacious for the 12 adults and one little one. We enjoyed the hot tub, foosball and ping pong as well as the large gathering space at the table to play games and eat.

The bedrooms were spread out and it gave us plenty of space so we didn't feel like we were on top of one another. My parents enjoyed the master suite on the 1st floor with the bathroom right off of it - which can also be open to the main house to utilize. There was also a queen room and room with 2 bunks on the first floor as well as another full bathroom. The lower level is like a completely different home with a kitchen set up, 2 full bathrooms, 2 queen rooms and a room with 2 twins. The ping pong table and small living area with TV is down there as well. From the first floor, there is a loft area that my young adult son utilized with 4 twin mattresses. There was so much space!

Ed was extremely accommodating and helpful during my reservation period and our stay and we appreciated that! I had to text Ed once during our stay and he got back to me immediately! Thanks Ed! :)

We are very thankful to have had this opportunity to bring our family together for such an occasion - how many people celebrate 65 years! Thanks for a great home Ed! Hopefully we will be back to visit again sometime! :)

We went up to Vermont to celebrate an early Friendsgiving and it will absolutely perfect.

The house is divine with all the amenities you'll need. It is big, beautifully decorate and Ed is very helpful and flexible. We quickly planned this trip and he answered every little questions always very quickly. We wish we could come back. If you planned a trip in Vermont be sure to book there! Thank you Ed for everything once again!!
