Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our custom built home is located in Killington on an acre of land, on a paved town road with other vacation homes. A second story has been added to make it bigger and even better.

The house now has a large kitchen-dining area on the first floor with a 24' cathedral ceiling and a large new Vermont Castings wood stove. Also on the first floor are 3 BRs, 1 &1/2 baths, an indoor sauna, and a shower room for two. A 'sun burst' pattern of antique skis and bamboo poles is displayed on one wall, with more antique skis and snowshoes displayed on other walls.

The new second floor has a bedroom, full bath, a living area which extends the length of the house (40') and includes a sleeping alcove with a Murphy bed. There are three sofas , several chairs and a recliner as well. The living area affords a winter view of the Green Mountains beyond the trees. A sliding glass door exits onto a large deck which descends to another deck facing the woods. The living area extends 17' into the house to a balcony overlooking the first floor dining area. The outdoor hot tub seats 4-5 comfortably, and is located on the upper deck.

The house is a five minute drive from the most popular lift areas, restaurants and night spots at Killington.

Summers are wonderful at Killington. Hike the Long Trail, take the lift up to the top of Killington with your mountain bike and ride the trails down, golf, swim, play tennis, or sit on the deck of the The Foundry, a great restaurant on the access road, and watch the sun set. If you're really feeling lazy, just sit on our deck, and listen to the breeze stir the leaves in the trees. In the evening, light a fire in the chiminea on the deck, and sit back and watch the flames, or look up and count shooting stars.

About Thano Schoppel

I am a retired New York City teacher, and my wife is a retired nurse.

Thano Schoppel purchased this house in 1980

Why Thano Schoppel chose Killington

We bought the property when we started skiing at Killington in 1968, and built our house in 1979-80. We added the second floor in 2003 to make room for our growing family.

What makes this house unique

When we were thinking about what kind of vacation house we wanted, we made the decision to make the living areas as large as possible. The location of our house makes it possible to get to the slopes and area nightlife in a matter of minutes, and yet allows for the kind of peace and quiet that a condo can't compete with.

Skiing Killington from the UK

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time in Vermont skiing. The house located in a very peacful location, surrounded by trees.The house was a great base for a family reunion and skiing holiday. We had three families (11 of us) staying for the week and the house was perfectly big enough to accomodate us all. Adequate shower and bathroom facilities even when returning exhausted from the slopes. The two lounge areas allowing the kids and adults to have their own space if wanted. The hot tub and sauna were well used and the computer with internet access was a particular hit with the kids, and a useful resource when we found our UK cell phones didn't pick up a signal in the mountains.The house is well situated for skiing - 5-10 min drive. We had two dumps of snow while there and the roads were snow ploughed very promptly ensuring no time was missed on the slopes and plenty of shovels to dig your car out. Plenty of restuarants and bars in Killington, but all need the car. House well equipped for self catering. On reflection there was nothing about the house that took away from the enjoyment of our holiday and would recommend to others.

Close to the mountain

  • 3 of 5

It was spacious & had lots of natural light but the cabin was not very clean (bedrooms were dusty with cobwebs too). We were especially pleased with how close we were to the mountain and the owner was responsive and sent all the detailed information prior to our trip. We enjoyed spring skiing with warm temps in February, this ski season was too short this year!
