This beautiful house has high speed wireless Internet, and cable TV programming for the three plasma TV’s. The beds have all recently been updated with brand new Simmons Beautyrest Plush Mattresses along with all new sheets and linens.

About Bob and Erin McGovern

Bob and Erin have owned Brookside for the last six years. We were impressed with the properties privacy, the amazing mountain views, the enormous lawn, the brook which the kids love exploring in the summer, and the golf course frontage. We have had many wiffle ball and flag football games on the lawn. The brooks babbling song is so relaxing, and also provides many fun hours of fishing, and exploring for the kids. The house is perfect for family reunions and vacations with friends. The beautiful open kitchen has hosted many shared meals, and the three living areas has given plenty of space for adults and children to spread out. Our family and friends have enjoyed many holidays and weekends in Killington. Skiing in the winter, swimming, hiking and kayaking in the summer, and enjoying the beautiful foliage in the fall. We hope you love it as much as we have!

Bob and Erin McGovern purchased this house in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner


Brookside is awesome, car port used all weekend with the crazy snow, and jacuzzi is wonderful. The snow shoes were used, as was almost every bed, pan, and plate. Your kitchen is perfectly stocked. Thanks for fitting us in a day early and for accommodating the scheduling of President's Weekend. We couldn't have picked a more perfect location from the mountain and the shops.

Thank You,

Modern and spacious with all the right touches. This is our 3rd year at Brookside with a group of 9 and we will be back! Great kitchen and hot tub. Love the bubble hockey. Beds were comfortable. A few minutes to Killington and restaurants.

Great weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at Brookside despite the mediocre snow conditions at Killington . The home was fantastic! Spacious, clean, well appointed and stocked. The hot tub was great and we even made use of the fire pit. But, overall, we spent most of our time in the large kitchen/dining area. We made a fantastic communal dinner for 10 and had plenty of space and supplies to pull it off without a hitch. We even re-enacted a few "Big Chill" moments as we danced to Motown cleaning up after dinner.

Bookside is a great property. Thanks Bob and Erin for sharing!

Amazing Property Close To Mountain

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house which fit 10 people comfortably with all the amenities one would want for a ski trip. Hosts were very helpful when one of the gas fireplaces wouldn't light and came out to help relight the pilot. Overall a great find!

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I had a wonderful stay at this house. The kids had a lot of fun playing Monopoly and Poker. The kitchen had everything we needed.This house is located in a very good spot, it is close to the Killington ski resort. It only takes a few minutes to get there, it is also close to the place where I rented my skis. The house is also very big so it is easy for kids to play around and nobody will get hurt. I also really enjoyed the glorious view outside. I also like how the bed is memory foam,it is very comfortable. Finally, the hot tub is very,very hot and comfy I really enjoyed it. Everything is very well designed, I really enjoyed living in this vacation house!:) The owner is very nice and friendly. Always response very quickly. Highly recommended to everyone.

Perfect for a our family reunion...

  • 5 of 5

Brookside was amazing on hole 4 of Killington Golf Course... we loved sharing memories around the fire pit with family we hadn't seen in 9 plus years... soooo much room for everyone to sleep comfortably, very comfortably, with plenty of private space for everybody! The large open kitchen was perfect for anyone that wanted to join in the cooking and the outdoor BBQ was an added bonus for 4th of July festivities.. next to the Roaring Brook itself, the huge backyard was just wonderful.. we brought our own badminton, bocce and frisbees...plenty of yard to play them all at the same time.. oh yeah and the youngins collected over shot golf balls from the brook as well!! With family coming from Canada, New Jersey and Vermont , we will definitely be making this our gathering spot in the future. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!!

very clean, roomy property.

  • 5 of 5

Very well laid out floor plan provided plenty of room to group get together, yet privacy with various private spaces. Separate basement facilities with walk oitnto hot tub are favorable. Easy access to skiimgnand golf a plus. Heating very efficient. Fireplace sometimes caused some kick backnof smoke to house when fire dies down, due probably to shallow unit. An outside air spires to vent the fire would help mitigate this, but probably not practical at this point.

Layout of yard and views of mountain are spectacular. Bedding top notch and very comfortable.

Kitchen roomy and clean.

Owner's Response: Cracking a window slightly in living room resolves this issue. We will add this to the information sheet for property. Thank you.
