A David Sellers Masterpiece
With the architectural mastery of David Sellers, the Upper Pines Lodge is fully integrated into Mad River Valley’s natural terrain. David Sellers is a Vermont-based architect whose practice includes urban and community planning, furniture design, industrial design, and innovations in sustainable technology ranges. Mr Sellers was named one of '40 Outstanding Architects in the U.S. Under 40 Years Old' by the NY Architectural League in 1968 and 1978. He was also listed among the 100 foremost architects in the world by Architectural Digest's AD100 in 1992.
We fully enjoyed our stay at the Upper Pines Lodge. The cabin is unique, stunning and perfectly located very close to Lincol Peak/Sugarbush. All as advertised and more. We stayed with another family (4 adults, 5 young boys). Plenty of room for all, with a room to spare. The media room was a great gathering spot for the kids to watch movies etc., while the adults enjoyed time around the fire in the comfortable living/family room. We would stay again, and have no reservations recommending Upper Pines Lodge for a stay in the Mad River Valley any time of year.
10 of us made a plan to gather to celebrate the New Years in Warren, VT. I spent HOURS scouring for just the right home and must admit was giving up hope when I changed my parameters one last time and The Upper Pines Lodge appeared on my screen. With exactly room for 10 and happy to accept my two dogs I knew I had found "the one." 5 months later when we opened the door to Jack's lodge we could not have been more delighted. The house was warm and welcoming and the ideal backdrop for our New Year's Eve festivities. We skied most days and then rushed back to the home to relax, play games, and sip wine by the fire(s). We stashed the four kids on the top floor to sleep and, as city kids, they were over the moon happy to have their own private kid space. And the master suite was pretty much as big as our apartment. This home is NOT your average rental and the owner is uber attentive to the details about his home but also to you as a renter. He was always available for questions and even answered some questions before you had them - mind reader! It is a special place worthy of a special occasion or will make any occasion special just by being there.
From start to finish, a seamless experience. We felt welcomed, informed and very fortunate upon turning the key to the Lodge. It's unique features, cozy and ample living spaces, and proximity to the mountains as well as the delightful Vermont towns of Warren / Waitsfield made our Christmas week the magical one that it was. It was a perfect homebase for our family of four to entertain friends and relatives, all of whom were as charmed by the setting as we were. We'd love to return.
We spent 4 days at this beautiful home last week. It is truly like no other place we have stayed before!! The design is very unique and breathtaking! And, we were blown away by the awesome views of the changing colors on the mountain. The lighting throughout the house is a bit challenging but if you follow the owners instructions you can master it. It was very cold while we were there and we had a few issues with getting the house warm enough for Florida people!! The thermostats are remotely controlled by the owner so as not to waste electricity. Jack was so easy to contact and work with and tried very hard to please us by increasing the temperature. Lots and lots of room to spread out and give everyone their space yet cozy enough to sit around the fire and talk about our travels during the day. Beds all were wonderful and we slept very well. Cant say enough good things about this place. We truly had a wonderful "fall foliage" experience and staying in this beautiful home was the icing on the cake!!
Beautiful setting and well kept home. We had a wonderful stay at Upper Pines Lodge. Thank you!
We rented Upper Pines Lodge Labor Day weekend for a near bye wedding. 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, lots of living space, huge wrap around deck, cooks kitchen, and a brand new Webber grill. This house is as good as it looks. 5 minutes to Warren, 10 minutes to Waitsfield and 5 minutes to Sugarbush. Lots of great restaurants close by. Jack is a very thorough host and everything is exactly as he says it is. I highly recommend this beautiful lodge for any season; either for a family vacation or a group of friends. You'll want to come back. We do.
