Its clear the owners have taken great care in the home and everything was as described. Easy trip to Mount Snow and PLENTY of parking including a garage.

  • Gem of a Cabin

    "This cabin is in an amazing location for views and peacefulness. We hiked and canoed right there, and, being on the top of the hill, the views every morning were breathtaking. Loved the fireplace and the Barr Natural Reserve walking distance from the front door. Looking forward to going back soon."

  • We Never Grew Tired of the View!

    "August 2014: We love The Ridge (have rented in the community a few times before) for the views, the quiet, and the space flexibility. This is our first time with this unit and the property headline is very accurate. Because this is an end unit, and particularly due to its siting in relation to the next group of units, it offers an exceptionally broad view as well as the extra natural light. The property is very clean, nicely furnished and very well stocked (pots & pans, cooking utensils, serving pieces, plates & silverware, and sheets and towels), reflecting that the unit is not a full time rental. We are a small family with one 10 year old daughter who occasionally had a friend visit. There was also a third bedroom with its own bath for the occasions when we had a couple visit for the weekend or for a few days. Although the unit isn't exceptionally large in square footage, there was plenty of space for all. The main floor living/dining/kitchen areas feel spacious due to the high ceilings. There are plenty of instructions in the unit about how things work and things to do in the area. The owners are very accessible, helpful, and accommodating. The Ridge has a quiet pool with a view as well. It's a nice feature for families as children (and adults) like to use it in between doing other activities or for quiet relaxation."
