My father bought our home in 1958 and we continue to use it for a ski house. our children (age 12, 9, 4) ski race so we use the house most weekends, we live and work in Boston. In the summer we love the ocean, so rarely use the house in the summer
Charlotte Maynard purchased this house in 1958
The 2,000 acres it boarders is the best part, but also the fact that the kids and I can wander down to the village easily, go on great runs, and access all that waitsfield valley has to offer. It si also a stop for the shuttle that takes you around the village and then to the sugarbush resort
I recently had this guest in our house. Our ski house is a 4 bedroom house that sleeps 12 adjacent to 2000 acres of preserved forest and within walking distance to a quaint Vermont village. We were asking the whopping price of $92.85/night for 7 nights! This guest showed up and complained about the following:
The sponge was not new, the vacuum clean was in the downstairs bedroom instead of hidden, each bed was not made (I provide linens, but they are folded on each bed), the arm of one chair was ratty, one of the overhead lights was uneven, the landscaping was not to their liking, they could not "play frisbee" in the yard (which is a field BTW) and there was evidence of mice. The last issue was the only reasonable issue and, yes, even when I am there for ski season, I can find the occasion evidence of mice. The rest of the issues were ridiculous. Despite the fact that they reserved a whole week, they asked for their money back. I said fine, I do not need the money and do not want an unhappy tenant in my home, but then they decided to spend the night and use the internet, and THEN they demanded ALL their money back. I said I would charge them the one-night rate ($200) plus cleaning and then give them a $50 discount. They were incensed. When my cleaning lady showed up after they left they had moved a ton of stuff around, but most disturbing, they turned all my family photos face down?!??
Perfect place for a group to call home base during an adventure weekend. Plenty of parking, warm and cosy, well stocked with board games, what more could we ask? As others have stated, it's not fancy, but it's clean and comfortable. The house is pretty hidden from the road so I'd recommend arriving during the daytime if possible in order to see where you're going.
My husband and the groomsmen used the place for a guys evening the night before our wedding and then we stayed there the night of the wedding along with a bunch of friends who didn't want to make the drive back to Burlington. It was perfect.
It's not fancy, but it is cozy and charming with lots of (very comfortable) beds. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks!
This house was exactly as advertised with pictures up to date. If you are looking for a brand new house with all the bells and whistles, this is not the house. If you are looking for a place to crash and maybe enjoy a meal or 2 while in the beautiful area, this is the place. Very convenient to town!
