Why Ashley chose Mount Snow Area

Perfect year-round retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this house for a week with our family (13 of us, ages 8 to 60's). We were thrilled with the property and cannot say enough. It is beautifully furnished throughout. Every possible need has been addressed, as well as so many extras we didn't expect. We've rented many vacation homes over the years; this was the most ideal for our large family with plenty of space to spread out.

The property is immaculately maintained. We had one little fluke with the dishwasher (our error) and Ashley answered our question promptly.

We all enjoyed the water crafts and the dock area. We had campfires a few nights and several of the boys spent a night lakeside in a tent we brought from home. The fishing was fun, right off the dock. There is a bit of a steep grade down to the lake from the house, not enough to prevent us all from enjoying that lake!

The grocery store (Shaw's) in the little town of Wilmington is close by and we enjoyed the little shops in the area. River Valley Market is a great specialty food store with high quality meats, produce, etc. Some of the grandchildren enjoyed Adams Farm nearby. Golf is nearby; the course near Mt. Snow has beautiful scenery and we didn't have any problem booking tee times.

We would recommend this property to all; it was a great family vacation!

My husband, a few couples and singles, and I stayed at the Ski Haus Friday to Monday and we had such a wonderful time. The home was stunning as was the view and property. There was plenty of room (12 people) for sleeping, eating and being alone when needed. The hottub was well worth the extra charge, it was clean and large. We really enjoyed everything about this home. I brought my own Keurig and an electric skillet because I wasn't sure what type of equipment would be available and being that I cooked for so many people I'm happy I did. There were cookie sheets and a cake pan, many pots and pans but they were in the smaller side so I did use my electric skillet a few times for dinner, but the provided equipment was perfect for breakfast and lunch and for smaller groups. After seeing this home in the winter we are all feigning to go back and see it for the summer! Thank you Ashley and your family for sharing your incredible home with us!

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to vacation at. My group of 9 adults and 6 kids had a wonderful time staying at this clean, nicely maintained home. We stuffed all of the kids in the bunk room and they spent most of the time downstairs playing ping pong and Foosball while the adults relaxed by the fireplace upstairs. Plenty of space to spread out. Having 3 full baths, one on each level, was so convenient. Ashley was very responsive to all of our inquiries. Plenty of snow so we had a great time skiing at Mt. Snow as well as sledding down the back hill to the lake. It looks like a great place for a summer vacation as well. I highly recommend this house.

Beautiful home for larger family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Ski Haus for a Fall family get-together. With 6 adults and 2 kids we had plenty of room for everyone. The foliage was at its peak while we were there and the view from the house was perfect. It was so nice to take advantage of the spacious dining table and while the three-season porch was chilly during our visit, it was a great place to take in the scenery.

The house has internet via satellite and I was worried that it wouldn't be able to handle the sheer number of devices that we had with us, but we got along nicely. There is no cable, but we watched netflix and with a little patience we were even able to stream a live show one night.

The foosball and ping pong tables were a huge hit with everyone, and the kitchen is well laid out to make meals for larger crowds.

Traveling into the adorable town of Wilmington was a quick and easy ride, and the shops there are really lovely. The Ski Haus was the perfect setting for our group and I'd love to visit again in the warmer weather to take advantage of the lake and all it has to offer.

Beautiful Waterfront House

  • 5 of 5

It was "wow" from the moment we walked in the front door. Beautiful views from the enclosed porch (we ate all our meals there) & from the lower deck where we had our before dinner drinks while cooking the majority of our evening meals on their Weber Grill. The bedrooms had the most comfortable beds & the entire house was decorated beautifully. We had so much fun down at the dock- whether it was just relaxing with a good book to read or out on the water with the kayaks & paddle boards that were provided. We highly recommend this property - we hated to leave.
