Homey Ski Chalet - Recently Renovated - Sleeps Eight

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Note: the home is now painted GREEN!!

This private home is loved by its owners, and it shows. Annual upgrades make this not-your-typical rental experience. Warm and homey, with many personal touches and amenities. The open kitchen/dining/living area invites long relaxed evenings. TVs in every bedroom allow for retreat, if desired. Loft office includes broadband connection to the Internet. A trundle bed which opens to king bed size is provided in the office/loft as well. Separate closets and dressers provided for renter's exclusive use.

We would prefer to share our home for the winter season with one renter family... and that renter would get all the premium dates, such as Christmas, MLK Weekend, and President's Weekend. Our needs amount to about 2 weeks out of the entire season which we negotiate at the convenience of our tenants.

This is truly a home to treat as one's own. If you are considering a season share, this is the place for you.

About Patt Reid

We are newly-retired ex-NYC residents who had a long career in the garment industry as textile artists. We continue to dabble in art and computer graphics. We are currently living in NJ primarily, but love to travel, so we might be found most anywhere.

Patt Reid purchased this house in 1983

Why Patt Reid chose West Dover

We purchased this house in Vermont because we both love to ski, even though we started late in life. We also love the people of Vermont and the calm life one enjoys there. We have spent so many wonderful holidays at the house with family and friends over these last 30+ years.

What makes this house unique

We love watching the leaves change in the fall. We love that we are close to the mountain for downhill skiing, but still around cross country trails and fabulous places to snowshoe. The small community where the house is located is quiet and away from the hustle of the highway. Since we both love cooking so much, the house is very well equipped. It's a most comfortable country home.

Amazing Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was cozy and stocked with all the cooking utensils we needed. Very close to Mount Snow, amazing skiing. Everyone said the shower/jacuzzi was life changing.

The house feels like your own and lived in, which is exactly what we wanted.

We, a group of 10 adults ...

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of 10 adults and 3 babies, had a fantastic experience at this place. As this is my first time to use a vacation rental, we've been a bit hesitant to decide a place to stay with only seeing its pictures, but when we arrived, we realized we chose the right place.

4 spacious bedrooms, 2 bath rooms, one loft and a queen size sofa bed in the living room. Enough blankets and pillows.

Looks like the house is recently renovated, very well maintained.

The owner, Patt, was very nice and accurate in everything. She prepared all the kitchen utensils that can be imagined, fire logs and BBQ logs, as well as several bottles of wine (we're not sure if the wines are for us, and we were very willing to pay after we opened it, but she never charged us). A nice BOSE home theater system is equipped. Electricity, heating and kitchen facility were perfect. Very convenient location, easy to find. Newly built Jacuzzi also.

Definitely we hope to come again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sam, glad you liked it. This was an off-season rental but we normally furnish just as well all year. However the wine was not intended! We'll be more careful in the future. So, the rest of you out there: don't expect it! Patt
