Enchanting 4 bd, 2.5 bath home located on 5+ acres in beautiful wooded setting

Welcome to our ski home! The home is situated on 5+ acres in a picturesque wooded setting just minutes away from Killington and Pico ski areas. Guests will fall in love with the home's spacious layout and unique architectural details.

The home has plenty of entertainment options for adults and children, including books, DVDs, board games, a Wii game system, a regulation size ping pong table, wireless cable internet, and two large flat screen TVs with DVD players.

About John Ralston

My wife and I recently moved to New England and fell in love with Killington while exploring VT. We were blown away by the wonderful people, the breathtaking scenery, and the proximity to year-round activities and entertainment.

Why John Ralston chose Vermont

We were enchanted with our home the first time we saw it. Inside and out, it is everything we ever wanted in a vacation property: it has modern updates and conveniences, an open and spacious layout, and is tucked away in a private and beautiful setting.

What makes this house unique

The home has many unique architectural details, including a bowed roof, two large Rumford fireplaces, custom interior window shutters, wavy glass window panes, wide plank hardwood floors, and custom wood doors, framing and paneling.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on a long weekend with a group of 9. The house fit our needs perfectly. It was extremely clean on our arrival. Everything worked well and the kitchen was well appointed. The heat worked fine. The drive way had been plowed and sanded on our arrival, which was in a bad rain storm in Feb. The road could have turned icy but it was manageable with front wheel drive cars. The house is very nice, not overly fancy, comfortable. All of the furniture and beds were very comfortable. The linens were all clean and the beds furnished with warm coverlets. The towels were in abundance, the bathrooms were fine, plenty of hot water. We liked the Great room for ping pong and TV and the living room with fireplace was a nice extra space for quieter gatherings. It was really a very nice place, very close to Killington, you can be at the lodge in 10 minutes, on the lift in 30. The owners were very good communicators and friendly, we had no issues at all. I would definitely rent it again.

Perfect Vermont Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this house justice, it is more wonderful and more spacious then you can imagine. We were three families with children ranging from 10 to 15. They had an entire portion of the house to sleep and hangout. The design and set up was perfect. The acreage is stunning and we had a wonderful time inside and out. Skiing all day at Killington and then returning to the tranquility of a beautiful fire in a natural, peaceful setting. John was a pleasure to deal with and we will definitely stay again!

Wonderful winter VT getaway for a large group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

Fellow college alumni and I ventured up to Killington from NYC for a weekend reunion and some time on the slopes. The house owners were wonderful in coordinating prior to and easy to reach when we had questions during the weekend. All beds were made, kitchen utensils readily available, etc. so that it was clear the owners had prepared the house for our visit. The house is located less than 10 min from Killington and several restaurants; we chose to eat in and found ingredients at a local market. I would recommend this relaxing getaway to any group looking to visit VT.

Great house, great experience!

  • 5 of 5

From my first contact with the homeowner, to arrival, and through departure, my experience with this home and its owners was incredible. Simply stated, the home is beautiful, with plenty of room for the 9 adults that were in my group, in a beautiful wooded (snowy) setting, close to skiing. Everything in the house was clean, organized, and made for a carefree trip. Aside from the house itself, I couldn't have been more pleased with my interactions with the homeowners. I would and will be staying here again.
