About Meg Ramsey
We are a family that loves Vermont and the outdoors.
Meg Ramsey purchased this House in 1985
Why Meg Ramsey chose West Dover
We love Vermont and own several properties here. When our family grew too large for this house we kept it to share with family and friends.
What makes this House unique
We are golfers, skiers, kayakers, hikers and mountain bikers. This home is close to everything as well as being a comfortable haven to just hang out and watch the world go by.

Stellar location, ok house
We would give the house 3.5 stars. The house was definitely as advertised and provides lots of sleeping space and hanging out space. Also great for multiple cars in the driveway though we only had one. Location was great for quick access to the mountain for skiing but beware that in snowy conditions getting up the hill to the house can be challenging. Even in an SUV we stalled out.
While the actual space was great, it did not appear very clean. We found a lot of debris and bugs on the ground and dust on the counters. The bath towels that were provided were stained even if they were clean, which wasn't a great impression. There were also no trash bags even though there were very specific instructions on how to put out the trash and what types of bags to use.
The heat was left off when we got in and it took a day for it to really heat the house after we turned it on. We were freezing, wearing multiple layers. I understand leaving it off when no one is there, but when you expect guests in below 0 temperatures, it should be turned back on in advance.
All in all it was ok. The owners were definitely very responsive and helpful so I do hope presentation continues to improve to keep people staying.
