Killington house description

Set on a private road in the hills just north of Pittsfield, our house welcomes you - winter or summer. Right in the heart of the Northeast’s best winter-sports, it is very convenient to the Killington and Pico ski resorts. Sugarbush, Okemo, and the famous Mad River Glen are all within easy reach for day trips. For golfers, Vermont’s #1 public golf course, Green Mountain National, is only ten minutes away, and in addition to Killington's own course, there are about 20 other excellent courses within an hour’s drive.

The house is a comfortable and spacious (2,000+ sq.ft) three-bedroom contemporary split into four levels. It’s a perfect place to relax and have fun whether you’re on your own or with a group. With the large living area, the dining room and the den on different levels, the house caters to large numbers of people yet still affords privacy. While you soak up the heat of the big fieldstone fireplace upstairs, the gang could be watching TV or playing games downstairs.

The kitchen is big enough for family eat-in, and the dining room seats 10-12 comfortably. The two upper levels are especially bright and airy with high cathedral ceilings and numerous skylights. The two bedrooms on the lower middle level sleep 3 & 4 respectively and share a recently remodeled full bath. The master bedroom on the lower ground level sleeps 5 and has its own bathroom.

Though the ski areas and golf courses are probably the main attractions, there are a number of activities available right from the doorstep. Picturesque hiking/snowshoeing trails lead straight from the house into the vast forests of the Green Mountains. There are other trails nearby (no need to drive) that are suitable for cross country skiing or mountain biking. And if you’re into something even more vigorous, the Vermont snowmobile trail network (VAST) is accessible from less than a half mile away.

In addition to the above, there are facilities for tennis, racquetball, bungee jumping (yikes!), alpine slide, swimming, fishing streams, tubing, music, theater, shopping, and any number of other activities nearby.

Please visit the guest book/review section for comments and reviews that previous renters have made. This summer we will complete more improvements, and the property is again available for short-term rentals over summer and fall 2014 - and of course for the ’14-’15 ski season.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: I'm probably not your average Vermont vacation home landlord. Though I consider myself to be from New York City, I have lived and worked all over the world - but primarily with a focus on telecommunications in Africa. Though I may have only played a small part, I can lay claim to having contributed over the last 15 years to providing mobile telephone services to more than 300 million people on the continent. When I first started, there were fewer telephones in the whole of Africa than in Manhattan - mobile or otherwise! Still on the same crusade, I am now based in Burundi (of all places!) after having lived the previous twelve years in Holland, Spain and Egypt.

                  Why the Owner Chose Killington:
                  I have always been a skier. I started going up to Killington from New York in the early eighties, renting and organizing share houses to be able to afford the season's ski pass and the gas in my old Pontiac. On occasion I would bring my parents along and they decided they liked the area - especially in the fall and summer. Hence the decision to buy a house there - on condition that I help defray the costs by running it as a share house in the winter. It was great fun for many years but when I moved overseas again it was impractical to run as before. So I started renting it by the season, and now for short-termers as well. I now own the house and this website has been a real benefit to keeping the place going. Though the rent never really manages to pay all the bills, I get good reviews and they encourage me to invest in making the house more and more comfortable every year. When I'm lucky, I can occasionally squeeze in between the bookings and enjoy the place myself for a few days!
