Location

Car: Recommended

Hugging the Dover Brook between Mount Snow and Stratton near the Stratton-Arlington Road. Close to Vermont VAST snowmobile trails and HuskyWorks.com dogsled rides. Near Grout Pond (swimming, fishing and kayaking) and the Stratton Trail (hiking and nature discovery). Reasonable distance to larger Somerset and Harriman Reservoirs. On scenic Rt 100 (motorcycle and bicycle heaven!) in the village of West Wardsboro, VT. Spectacular views of the Milky Way and meteor showers at night.

Other Activities: snowshoeing, Catamount XC trail system, dogsled rides, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, kayaking, and hiking.

Golf: Challenging Mount Snow, Haystack and Stratton golf courses are all nearby.

Ski: Incredible skiing & snowboarding terrain at both Mt. Snow (4 quick miles from my ski house) and Stratton (10 easy miles from my ski house). Big Bromley and Magic Mountain are 35 minutes away. Okemo is 45 minutes away.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Vermonter's at heart! It always feels great to be at our relaxing cabin in Vermont.

Why the Owner Chose West Wardsboro:
Very convenient to get to Mount Snow and Stratton's Sunbowl lodge. Charming VT-style cabin is well-maintained.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace & quiet away from the ski lodge crowds yet only minutes away from restaurants and other attractions. Soothing babbling brook nearby and hiking/snowshoeing along logging trails in the woods behind my house.
