Welcome to THE SNOWS NEST, a year-round vacation home in Vermont's beautiful Green Mountains. We just had a terrific ski season in the Valley, but an equally terrific summer is not far off. We love skiing but mmm, Vermont in the summer is amazing! Your base for weddings, graduations, cultural activities or athletic competitions or just a fresh air getaway.
Want to hit your reset button? REALLY need that R&R? Want to play hard, eat well, and fall asleep at night with that wonderful tired feeling that only time in the out-of-doors can bring you? Want to relax and be silly and have fun and leave all the day in, day out monotony behind, if only for a short while? Give yourself a break and refresh, recharge, reconnect, relax, regress! Tell the adult in you to take a hike! (really ...)
Some rentals are pretty bare bones. We plan for you to enjoy every minute of your stay in Vermont with all sorts of comforts and amusements. We have EVERYTHING you want. Three good-sized bedrooms sleep 6, two bathrooms, air conditioning, large rear deck with with a full retractable awning, covered front porch, fully furnished, 3.5 acres with diurnal pond (good for frogs, not for swimming). Off beautiful Common Road east of town. Views to the west. Please look at the pictures, as they say it all, it's very livable. Our home is designed for YEAR ROUND fun and relaxation; for family and social gatherings.

YOUR CHILDREN AND FLEA-FREE, WELL BEHAVED PETS ARE WELCOME.
We strongly discourage smoking, but if you must, outdoors ONLY, and dispose of butts appropriately.
So long as they are flea-free and you scoop up after them. We have a doghouse, although we strongly discourage tying your animal up outside while you away from the property. Too many critters out there! Not fair to the dog....moreless

About the owner: The kittens, Cosmo and Moxie, and I welcome you. Animals rule! We love well-behaved, flea-free pets with the exception of some dog breeds (sorry, our insurance requires it). We realize there are good dogs and bad dogs out there of every breed, but the following breeds are generally acknowledged to carry the greatest risk ...pit bulls, akitas, rottweilers, chow chows, presa canarios, or any wolf/dog combination. Mixed breeds fine (who doesn't love a mutt).
Why the Owner Chose Waitsfield: No better place on the planet than the State of Vermont! Great skiing, but great all year round with the wonderful outdoors yours for hiking, biking, fishing, tennis/golf, birdwatching, we just can't list it all ... get away from the daily grind, Vermont will help you hit your reset button!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The entire house is planned to be a walk in/walk out operation - just pack your suitcase, and stop at the grocery store, everything else you need is here already. It is clean, and furnished specifically for family and social gatherings. Enjoy the unspoiled and varied scenery for dog walking, biking, or just kick back on the front or back decks and watch the wildlife. Waitsfield can cover all your shopping needs.
