About Rosemary Gillespie

We have been skiing as a family and with a group of friends for 20 years. We love the Mt Snow area

Rosemary Gillespie purchased this house in 2001

Why Rosemary Gillespie chose West Dover

This house is well appointed, easily accommodates a family style crowd and is just minutes from everything that the valley has to offer.

What makes this house unique

We love the proximity to Mt Snow and all that the village has to offer for restaurants, shops and the grocery store. It really is convenient to everything! I am also in love with our wrap around post and beam porch and really wide stair entry. It accommodates a large crowd entering and exiting.

My family and I have traveled to the Northeast for the last 5 years. This is the prettiest, best maintained, cleanest home we have ever stayed in. The owner was friendly and helpful at all times. There were 13 of us staying in the home, consisting of 7 adults and 6 children; - five different households. There were more than enough bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped. The house is very centrally located with market and restaurants nearby.

Great location. Good house

  • 3 of 5

Pros: location, # of rooms, large deck, large front room to keep equipment

Cons: really hard to maintain room temperature. Really uncontrollably hot at times even with heat on low. Self serve garbage was very inconvenient, bring your own cooking supplies - Pots pans cutlery etc. Stove/oven unit needs to be updated. Water pressure not good.

Perfect Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the red house! We came for a week and shared the house with my sisters and their families. This house just keeps going and going so even the babies got their own rooms and everyone was comfortable. The full kitchen was great for making festive diners to share or easy breakfast for the niece and nephew while the grownups slept in. There is plenty of space to hang out and spend time together. Even while folks are hanging out in the common areas, it is very quiet in each of the bedrooms. There were bedrooms in the basement, and on the whole second floor. The top floor is finished as a place to socialize or a giant room with en suite. It has the most amazing views of the mountain! No need for a conditions report, you could check the weather by looking out the windows. I loved waking up to that view. The house is on a quiet street but just a few turns from West Dover's main road. There are all kinds of restaurants and shops nice and close, some walkable and lots more a short drive away. There is also super easy access to amazing hiking, a peaceful mountain pond, horseback riding and a wide array of ski areas. We will totally be back for a winter visit!

Location, Location, Location!

This house is in a perfect location. Close to restaurants, stores and Mt Snow. The back deck and wrap around porch are huge. Plenty of bedrooms and a well stocked kitchen with all the utensils and appliances that you would need to make a meal. The owners checked in with us after our arrival to make sure there wasn't anything else we needed. We will definitely be back!

Great home for family & friends in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Red House first for a winter season, then as a year-round second home, and we loved it! With its freshly renovated interior and exterior, tasteful decor and family friendly spacing (adults on the open-space kitchen/ living room first floor; kids can play their games on third floor), it was the perfect second home for a family like ours that likes to entertain friends. The close proximity to Mt Snow (< 1 mile) and the Hermitage (< 3 miles) is perfect for true skiers, plus you are close to many restaurants. The owners are always reachable, very hands-on and reliable, and always friendly. Can't think of a better place to recommend!

Splendid Mount Snow Ski House for seasonal rental

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic venue for a large family or multiple couple retreat. We rented this property multiple times as a seasonal rental with many special memories made here. The house handles big groups well as it's multiple living areas allow a large crowd to spread out. All bedrooms are very quiet as the house is well insulated. Beautiful gas fireplace and deck with a convenient location close to the mountain, restaurants and bars. Being two minutes away from the mountain made it super convenient to drop off of our children in the Mount Snow competition program at a very early hour each day and come back to the house for coffee and breakfast before our own ski day. The owner was delightful to work with and was always very responsive to our inquiries and needs. I miss our seasons at the "Red House" now that our children are grown, but I would highly recommend this property for others looking for a seasonal rental in the Mount Snow area.
