Fun place, plenty of space and great location.

All was good - except there was one bed on third floor that looked as if it was slept in - the first floor bath floor was dirty and I needed to scrub it. Think you might need to check on the cleaning staff.

Rooms had dust & cob webs above beds. -not pleasant . shower not finished??

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed fireplace but heat came on at @2:00anm and we could not breath upstairs. Parking ok and a nice man blew snow out of drive Dover could get the truck out to drive around. Skiing was great a little cold and cloudy in the first day an Christmas but wonderful other days. Bus worked well. Friendly shops were enjoyed. Nice art too. Will pick a newer house better bathrooms & gas stove next time

Owner's Response: Oh no! So sorry to hear about the cob webs and dust. That is definitely not our standard of cleanliness and I will make sure to talk to our cleaners. The Ice House is a historic home, with a unique charm that most of our guests have enjoyed in the past. If you're looking for something more updated for your next stay, give us a call, we have options and we'd love to have you back!

Historical house

Interesting, historical house. Upstairs ceilings very low. Fun eclectic decor but house needs a good cleaning. Great location. Nice yard for children playing.
