About Maureen Donegan
Two sisters, Colleen Kelly and Mimi Donegan, and Mimi's husband, Mike Donegan, began building this home in 2008. It has truly been a labor of love! Our Irish heritage has contributed to the three of us being a bit clannish by nature, so when we decided to build, we wanted the house to be big enough for a large gathering of family and friends. We hope our home will be a place for you and your loved ones to enjoy for years to come!

Beautiful house, ideal location
Our stay here for a long ski weekend was perfect. The house is large enough to accommodate two families with multiple children (ages 6-17) comfortably, while still retaining a cozy 'home away from home' feeling. Games, puzzles, toys, books and magazines were available and appreciated by our diverse group. The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped -- plenty of cookware, dishes, cutlery, glasses, etc. (unlike other large rentals where I have stayed with only one pot or pan and fewer plates than beds!). The beds were comfortable; the bathrooms were clean and spacious. I honestly cannot think of anything the house was lacking or any problems we experienced. The house was a short drive to Okemo Mountain, Bromley and Manchester Village - making it easy for us to see and do a variety of activities during our stay. I certainly would recommend this property to friends and would stay here again.
Great house, great location, would like to rent again.
Really great place for a big group!!
Our second year at this place and we'd stay here again! Comfy, roomy, warm, well stocked kitchen, pool table/ping pong on lower level great for all! Three things to be aware of: 1. Be prepared for very steep drive. 2. We had to haul our own trash this year which is inconvenient if you want to ski and not go to transfer station, or if you don't have room in your car to take it home. Also we didn't bring trash bags and there were only a few at house so don't forget to pack or buy. 3. Slats on bunks are too short. Son fell through just sitting down. Check before you tuck in!
Thanks for the feedback! We are very sorry to hear about the bunkbed and truly hope your son was OK. We have arranged to have new slats installed and permanently secured so they can not be moved. Also, we apologize for the mix-up with the trash. We must have sent you the wrong version of our checkout list as our cleaners remove the trash for our rentals and have been doing so for more than a year now. We apologize for the inconvenience! Aside from these two issues, we certainly hope you enjoyed your stay in southern Vermont a few weekends ago.

The amenities were far beyond expectations. The house was beautiful, very spacious, and very accommodating. I am planning another trip to the area later on this year and I am hoping to book this house again if available. If you could send me some details about this I would greatly appreciate it.
Wonderful house and location
We stayed here for a foliage long weekend. The house is wonderful (the pictures cannot complete it do it justice). Nestled in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by the woods, but close to town/supermarket/restaurants, Manchester about 15-20 minutes away. The house easily accommodated 4 families with children (8 adults and 6 young kids). There are plenty of hikes to do 15-20 minutes away, there's Bromley Mountain with activities both summer and winter. The house has everything you would ever need and more - the kids enjoyed roasting marshmallows at the outdoor fire pit, playing horseshoes and swinging in the hammock. All in all a wonderful experience - we would definitely return when back in VT.
A little tricky to find but absolutely wonderful location. It's an ideal spot for people who want to gather and spend quality time together.
The house is 12 miles from Stratton, 15 miles from Okemo, 6 miles from Bromley Mountain and the Summer Fun Zone, 1 mile from Magic Mountain Skiing and Snow Tubing and 1/4 mile from the Viking Nordic Cross Country Ski Center. It is also 15 miles from shopping at Manchester Center, and 6 miles from Weston. The Appalachian Trail and Long Trail are nearby, Lowell Lake State Park is 1/2 mile away for canoeing, and there many great options for kayaking and fishing. Miles of Vermont back roads are great for long bike rides, runs, or drives to enjoy the foliage, and world class golf is only minutes away at Stratton, Equinox, and Tater Hill, just to name a few!
