  • Perfect Setting for a Quiet Vt Weekend

    "This cabin is everything you might want to enjoy a beautiful laid back weekend in Vt. The location is perfect, the cabin simple yet so well equipped. We wanted for nothing - even ate most of our meals at home because the kitchen has everything! The waterfall and pond provide an added sense of peace . We did go into Woodstock (a short drive) and to the Barnard Country Store (great!) but mostly relaxed on the deck with a cup of coffee or in the comfort of the living room with a glass of wine and the warmth of a woodstove. Owners very helpful and delightful too!"

  • Nice Ski Condo

    "This was a nice, comfortable ski condo for a family of 4. Everything is there, the trails are a couple hundred yards but walkable in ski boots, the swimming pool is right across the street, the owners are friendly and responsive. And it is priced right. The fleece blankets / throws are the softest I have ever felt and we all wrapped ourselves up in them by the fire. The only downside is that it is a little worn around the edges, but whether that bothers you is a matter of opinion. Kitchen stuff could use an upgrade, knives weren't sharp, gadgets were old and not always clean, drawers were a little disorganized and sticky. The ski locker was filled with 5 or 6 foldable chairs and not easily used for guest skis (we had to move that stuff out into the condo and then replace it before leaving). Little things like that. Could it use a little makeover, organization or renovation? Sure. But in owner's defense, that seemed to be factored into the price and the unit was not misrepresented, so 5 stars. And since I do all the cooking and ski storage, I was the only one it bothered, everyone else thought it was great."

  • Fantastic Condo

    "The condo was everything that we had hoped for and was what had been promised. It's a true ski-on/off property which was what we had wanted. We could easily come in for lunch and those of us that wanted to end the day early could do so without inconveniencing the others. The amenities were as promised, fully functional kitchen, with everything we needed, great bathrooms, comfy beds, clean, spacious, etc. Another great feature was the close proximity to the sports centre. A quick walk and we were in the outdoor hot-tub. If we go back to Killington, this is where we will stay. We were five staying at the condo and we all loved it!"

  • Hands down, one of best places to book in Killington

    "If you're looking for a spacious, clean, fun and nice place to stay in Killington, the Racquetball house is your place. Simply put, the house was pristine clean when we arrived and has everything you need to make a week, night or weekend enjoyable. The Racquetball court added a whole new dimension of awesomeness, it was in great condition and easy to use when we got there. The location is right near all of the downtown bars and nightlife which made it quite easy to get to the bars. The hot tub was clean upon arrival as well. I would definitely recommend this place to any decent sized group of people (10-20) that want an enjoyable time in Killington. Again, simply superb house kept in great condition."
