About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths

Relax in our sun-filled living room in front of the fire or soothe your tired muscles in the hot tub! Skiing is just a mile away and our street is on the free shuttle line that runs through the Mount Snow Valley.

Our Non-Smoking home boasts of an open floor plan that makes it perfect for groups of friends or for your family. It's kid-friendly with games and videos. We also allow pets, so you can bring your well-behaved family dog, too! We have a run attached to the house that will work for a dog as big as a Lab and the house is on a low-volume, dead end street.

Best of all, you can walk down the street to some of the best pubs and restaurants in the Valley and we're less than a mile from the movie theater and shopping. Whether you come to ski or not, a great time is guaranteed!

About Ellen or George Ornato

We have owned the house since we were in our 20's, when we ran it as a 'share house' with friends. Our kids have grown up skiing at Mt. Snow and we've been fortunate to be able to share our house with others through rentals.

Ellen or George Ornato purchased this house in 1988

Why Ellen or George Ornato chose West Dover

We bought this house so that we'd have a convenient, relaxing, family-oriented home to stay in when skiing in Southern VT. It's perfect for two families or a group of friends & relatives.

What makes this house unique

We're a dog-friendly house in a quiet neighborhood. The local shuttle, the Moover, picks up at the bottom of our street and goes to Mt. Snow as well as into Downtown Wilmington. Our house is clean, open, and easy.

Perfect home for a family ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This home is 5 minutes to Mt. Snow, warm and cozy. We were 6 adults and our 2 yr. old grandson. Ellen and George were so accommodating, even purchasing a brand new pack n' plan and high chair for the baby! The kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of parking and comfortable beds.

The best amenity was the indoor hot tub! No running in the freezing cold in and out of the tub. Just what we needed for our old bones and a couple days on the slopes.

We would certainly rent again, even in the summer to go up for a couple rounds of golf!

Thank you Ellen and George!

Cozy and Clean House in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed in this house for NYE weekend and had a great time despite the negative temperatures!

Ellen was very quick to respond and make us aware of issues. When we arrived she let us know that the hot tub was not working and she was trying to get someone to come fix it. The property manager, John, ended up coming to the house on NYE day and was able to fix the hot tub which we really appreciated! The house itself was very clean and comfortable with plenty of sleeping and lounging space for our group. Although we opted out of skiing because of the frigid temperatures, the close proximity to ski mountains is another plus for anyone looking to have a ski weekend. I definitely recommend booking this property!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. It is located in the perfect spot to be away, but still have a small market, and restaurants close by. It is very close to many ski amenities, if that is the purpose of your visit. We came to see the leaves changing, and enjoyed the ride up, and the surrounding area. The stars at night were breath taking from the porch of the house.

The house is very clean, and well equipped with all you will need to enjoy your stay, without the need to over pack. We have rented properties before where we had to bring every single thing we would need, from toilet paper to dish towels...and this place had more than the basic stuff provided,which was really appreciated.

The fact that it was pet friendly made it all the more enjoyable for our whole family, our furbaby included.

Thank you for being willing to share your little Oasis with others...I would love to visit again in the future.
