About Kevin

We are skiers! Summer time we frequent Mad/Chase/Mill River - two are within walking distance from back yard.

We are outdoor folks - picnic table, fire pit, chairs for outside - We like clean! We use this house and want it to be as clean and comfortable for you as for us. We have what we consider the finest cleaning crew in the Mad River Valley.

We've even had weddings in our yard - large, flat and professionally maintained, it's a great place to spend time with family and friends. In summer/fall, there are no other houses in view of the yard - very private.

Kevin purchased this house in 2003

Why Kevin chose Waitsfield

House is filled with light on all three levels.

Summertime yard is perfect for outdoor gatherings around fire pit next to hot tub and picnic table, plus deck with large grill off kitchen. Yard is perfect for Frisbee, sitting out on a warm day with woods all around - no neighbors can be seen in summer. Close to everything, even short walks in private neighborhood. Lot's of light in house east-facing living/kitchen and deck off kitchen.Great sunrises from living/kitchen area and deck with your coffee. Catemount Trail access from back yard.


This is the very best valley in Vermont! Better snow ( 300'+) from lake effect, NO stop lights, franchises, or cheesy motels for 30+ miles in Mad River Valley - VERY quiet year round, yet close to Stowe, Woodstock, Killington and 45 mins to Burlington! Montreal is 1.5-2 hrs drive.

What makes this house unique

Flat yard for kids adults who enjoy sitting outside, manicured professionally maintained lawn, hot tub and fireplace for year round enjoyment outside, Can see no houses in summertime.

Private community with 28 houses - no traffic. Good walking/snowshoeing paths behind house ( Catemount Trail) Marked!

2.5 miles to the famous Farmers Market in Waitsfield Village each Sat - 4 miles to Warren Store. Long Trail is accessed from either Appalachian Gap ( 4 miles) or Lincoln Gap ( 6 miles) over Mts Abraham, Lincoln, Ellen, General Stark and four minor peaks for easy drop off and pick up

Classic Vermont!

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were delightful, the house is roomy for a large group while maintaining a cozy feeling. Nicely stocked with pots and pans if you want to stay in and cook! The house is very close to the mountain, and the hot tub and fire pit make for a wonderful evening.

Great layout for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Stayed xmas week 2017 - temperatures were sub-zero most of the week. Although we anticipated being on the mountain for the majority of the daytime hours, this was not the case. The three level house provided ample space for three families inclusive of 8 Kids not to feel crammed. Many hours were spent playing board games and on the wii. Kids loved the hot tub but even some days it was too cold for that. The hot tub is not as far from the house as the pics reveal. Owners were great and very responsive.

Great big house!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came to celebrate the wedding of a friend getting married in Fayston and we had a wonderful weekend!!

The house is very close to Waitsfield, and we really enjoyed going to the farmers market in town and swimming at a local swimming hole.

The house has a ton of beds, and lot of space to relax. We enjoyed using the fire pit and the hot tub and the deck. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. Our host Kevin left really detailed instructions for everything and that made everything really easy.

We would definitely recommend staying here!

Comfortable home for a small family or a large crowd.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Vermont for the week to attend a family wedding. The home was a perfect fit for our family and dog. The kitchen was newly renovated and fully outfitted with anything that you might need. We loved the hot tub and fire pit as well. The owner, Kevin, went above and beyond and allowed our friends that were getting married to leave their camper in our driveway and even offered for them to plug in it to the garage. We appreciated that very much and the camper was ready for them to take off to their honeymoon in Nova Scotia after the wedding.

Great Ski House

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised. Kevin made sure we knew how to get into the house and what to expect. He also answered all of our questions and did so in a timely manner. Plenty of space for numerous adults and kids. The satellite tv was a big hit with the children after a long day skiing or sledding. The house is very close to the main access road to Sugarbush as well. We enjoyed eating at the Hyde Away Inn and the Blue Stone. Both are less than a five minute drive. If we were to complain about anything it would be that our minivan had a difficult time getting up the road and into the driveway. Four wheel driver wouldve been a big help. We would absolutely stay here again if we chose to go back to Sugarbush.
