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.

Had a blast
We had such a great experience staying at Thanos home. Everything was perfect; location to the mountain, bars, and restaurants. The one thing I did notice, inside the home was very clean but outside was dirty. On the lawn out front there was old strawberries and a bagel that had been sitting there for quite some time that was starting to mold. The back porch had some left over trash from the people before. Overall we had a great experience and we definitely stay again
We try to keep the outside of our house as clean as the inside I contacted Paulina to apologize for the trash. A few inconsiderate renters will toss things outside that are quickly covered by the snow in winter. I usually go up when the snow melts to police the property, but the virus situation forced me to stay home this year.
Gets the job done for a group ski trip
Large house with plenty of room for 9 adults. The hot tub, sauna and artisan well water were to die for, however the furniture overall was uncomfortable and tired. Would have been nice to have a comfy couch and a few comfy chairs to crash onto after a day on the slopes. Also, having 1 key for the house was difficult with 9 people, would have been nice to have a key pad door lock. As previously said in other reviews and in the property description, 4x4 drive is definitely needed for parking in the driveway and we even had one car get stuck in the parking pad. Just fyi, we fit 2 pickup trucks in the driveway and 3 cars in the parking pad. It didn't snow at all during our 5 night stay so I can only imagine what the parking would’ve been like had it snowed. Cabinets were fully stocked with kitchen utensils and gadgets which was very helpful but left little room to store food. Overall we really did love this house and will definitely rent again!
Great House - Great Location
I booked this house with a group of friends for a long weekend in early February and then again with my family in March and had a great stay both times. The house is comfortable with plenty of room to spread out and is a short drive to the Killington Road restaurants and the Ramshead and K1 base areas. Also, the hot tub and sauna deserve mentioning--both were great for unwinding after a day on the slopes! Thano was quick to respond to questions. I would definitely recommend staying here and plan to book again in the future.
We are always happy that our renters enjoy our Killington house as much as we do.
Great house, great location.
Close to the mountain
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!
