Nice house but a few things you need to be aware of

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean, well maintained and comfortable inside. It is suitable for 2-3 families with enough bathrooms and plenty of seating for dinner and areas to relax. The kitchen was well furbished and had basic supplies.

The house was about 20-25 minutes away from the Killington Ski Resort and about 5-10 minutes from the Mountain Top Resort cross-country ski area, with ice skating and sledding.

Guests should be aware of the lay-out of the upstairs rooms. Three bedrooms were interconnecting which meant there was limited privacy for people in first two rooms.

There were a couple of things that we were not happy about.

When we reserved the house, we indicated that we were 14 people. The house was advertised as sleeping 12-14 people. When we called a few days before arriving to confirm the lay-out of the bed rooms, we were informed that one bedroom was for the use of the owner only and would cost an extra $300 if we wanted to use it. We ended up with 2 people sleeping on couches as a result.

Also, we were given the wrong code for the lock box, which meant that the first people from our group arriving were out in the dark and cold trying to get in. Since there was no cell phone connection, they had to drive a mile or so down the road in order to call us. When we called the agency to get the correct number, they seemed unsure as to the correct code.

Many wonderful stays at this Traditional Farm Home for all seasons.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we always have in this perfect getaway home; it's always a great way to escape. Whether it's in the winter, with the snow and coziness of the home, or summer, enjoying the reservoir and the great lawn. Our family and friends have created wonderful memories. This home is far enough away from all the craziness of the Killington access rd. but yet a short drive to Ski and Hike this beautiful area. I recommend families to use it for Reunions, Skiing & Kayaking.
