About Jivka Nenkova
Guest satisfaction and enjoyment of their time here at Heaven On Earth at Chimney Hill Resort are paramount to us. We love to travel and we know how important clean accommodations are - and to that end, we strive. We purchased the house with the intent to provide guests with a spectacular location and clean house, but at lower cost. The famous saying “You get what you paid for” does not apply here. Guests get substantially more than what they paid for. The house is a rustic cabin decorated as such and is very cozy and welcoming. We have an ABSOLUTELY NO SHOES INSIDE THE HOUSE rule. Feel free to bring slippers. We do not return the security deposit if we note that guests have been going inside with shoes. The ice skating rink is open all winter with skates and helmets available for the kids. The warming hut is great for mom and dad to keep the chill off while the kids skate! Our house is fully equipped with numerous amenities such as outdoor hot tub (nothing beats a long day of outdoor activities like a dip in the hot tub), foosball table, and plenty of movies and board games to choose from. We provide linens and towels free of charge (1 towel per guest). Well behaved dogs are welcome for additional $50 for up to 3 nights stays, $100 for 4-7 days, and $150 for 7-10 days. For long term guests, the dog fee will be determined according to the length of stay. Dogs must be kept off the furniture and beds. All dogs must be kept on a leash while outside (to avoid wild animal encounters). Please clean up after them before you leave. Additional $100 pet damage/cleaning fee will be charged should we find any damage or dog waste following inspection of the house and yard after you leave.
Why Jivka Nenkova chose Wilmington
We bought this property because it is located in a four season spectacular area. We wanted to provide to our family and extended family a place to go at any time of the year and be able to relax and recharge among beautiful nature. Our dream is to establish a retreat here for those looking for physical, mental, and spiritual rejuvenation. This place, the cabin and the Mountain Snow area, is a perfect setting to do this at any time of the year. The property is very special to us and we love to share it with others who find it special as well! "Heaven on Earth" at Chimney Hill Resort is placed in the heart of The Green Mountain region. It is also 1 h. 20 min. from Albany NY, 1 h. 20 min. from Monadnock Mountain (the most/second most climbed mountain in the World), 20 min from the closest point in New Hampshire, and the closest point in Canada is about 3.5-4 h . It is a popular destination for tourists from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. It allows you to quickly step into NH and shop "tax-free." It is a very easy, no traffic ride from any point in Massachusetts (we live there). It allows you to make day trips to Albany NY, Springfield and Pittsfield MA area (Berkshire Mountain), Keene NH, Monadnock Mountain in Jaffrey NH, and so much more. If you are brave and adventurous enough, you would even make a day trip to Montreal, Canada. There are hiking trails with starting points at Chimney Hill Resort. If you like hiking, your best treat will be Monadnock Mountain - imagine climbing the most climbed mountain in the World - it was a thrill for us!!!

Rustic cabin in the woods
Nice cabin in a convenient location. Near the lake and town.
Nice place, but many surprises upon arrival
We stayed at the cabin for a week with our older kids and dogs. While the property was nice and the location was great, there were many small surprises that detracted from our overall experience including: not enough towels, a broken drier (the homeowner knew it was “having problems “ previously but hadn’t replaced it), a smaller then expected hot tub, and a freezer more then 3/4 filled with the owners food.
The house is nice but a bit smaller than we would have liked. And the detailed guidelines were a bit excessive. This is a good property for a small group, or for a larger group that plans to be out of the house for most of the time. And renters should read the highly detailed guideline carefully so as not to encounter unwelcome surprises.
We are very surprised to read the ridiculous complaints from Lisanne. It appears that she and her group are a high maintenance and ungrateful people.
1. Towels - most hosts charge for providing linens and towels. We provide them free of charge and have 1 towel per guest. For being free of charge, that is all we do. THIS IS STATED ON OUR LISTING (by requesting to book, guests agree to accept what we provide)
2. The dryer - it had problems before, but what these guests experienced was a new issue that the cleaners discovered immediately before Lissane's arrival and we had no time to act. Had they used the public laundromat, we would have payed for it. The issue is resolved now.
3. The Hot Tub - we are not responsible for the guests' expectations for the size of the tub. We do not claim it to be large or small on our listing and these guests never asked for the specific size. Therefore they should have not been surprised by the actual size.
4. Freezer - we do keep food there as we use the property as well. But we provide a smaller freezer in the basement for guests to use if need it. This is stated in our guidelines which Lisanne complained about.
We allowed this group to bring 3 dogs, something that most hosts will not allow. One of our rules for dogs is to be kept off furniture. We were unpleasantly surprised to find dog hair all over the couches and the one in the basement has a cloth cover and it was extremely hard to get the hair off. The cover needed to be washed. Despite of that, we still gave Lizanne a good review since she had none and we did not want her first review to be negative. We also did not charge her damage deposit for the extra cleaning that had to be done because of the dog hair. As you can see, high maintenance and very ungrateful people. We've had groups of 15 people and NO ONE has ever complained that the house is too small (please refer to our reviews). Perhaps the 3 dogs in the same house made it a bit too tight for them. How much space do 6 people need??? After all, there are 2 living rooms and 5 bedrooms. (THIS IS ALSO STATED ON OUR LISTING and it is not our fault that these guests found it smaller than they would have liked it).
As you can see, there is nothing that the guests experienced, that is worth complaining about. Either the listed issues are stated on our listing and the guests agreed to them by booking, or they are just derived by their high maintenance and ungrateful personalities.
We went with our young adult children. We went swimming and kayaking 30 min away. We went tubing on the Deerfield River 40 min away. It was a VERY hot weekend. The house was hot, most slept in the basement bedrooms. I would suggest ceiling fans for all the bedrooms. We enjoyed the pool at the clubhouse. Hope to come again in the winter. The restaurants in town were great just get there early as they close by 9. We enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your suggestions Mary! We do have regular fans. Another way to cool the house is to keep all windows and the sliding door open.
We do hope that you will come back in the winter or at any time! Thank you for taking a good care of our cabin!!!
Beautiful home with a great location. Close to the mountain,restaurants and bars.
Thank you for your five-star review Brett. And thank you for appreciating our cabin for what it is - beautiful. We hope you come back!
Wonderful Ski House - Perfect for Family and Friends
This house is exactly as it appears. It's a charming ski house in a nice town, near Mount Snow. Plenty of bedrooms, nice open kitchen, great outdoor deck with hot-tub. I plan to stay again here with my family next year!
Thank you Jeff for the 5 star review. You were excellent group of people who are very respectful and very low maintenance. We are happy that you did see our cabin as what it is. We will gladly host you again!!! The area is beautiful and charming in other seasons as well. We hope you come back to see it soon. All the best to all of you!!!
Very nice place and the location is great. Make sure to have 4WD or AWD for the winter months like they say in the description otherwise you will get stuck. The hot tub is small and is ideal for 2-3 people, but you can fit more as long as you can get snug. Overall great experience and the owners helped us out with the pets. Would definitely stay again!
Thank you for the 5 stars Josh! The hot tub is designed as 6 persons tub, so you must have had some big people in your group. Hope you come back!
