NOTE FOR TRAVELERS WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF FOUR:
The area in the vicinity of my home has many outdoor activities that would interest children four and older: hiking and swimming in the summer, skiing and playing in the snow in the winter. In addition, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science Nature Center and the Billings Farm and Museum are both are located near Woodstock on Route 4, approximately a half-hour drive east of my house and have many interesting activities that appeal to children. A rock climbing gym is located in Rutland, approximately a half-hour drive west of my house. All the public schools in my area have playgrounds. The one at the elementary school in Woodstock is brand new.
NOTE FOR TRAVELERS WITH BABIES OR YOUNG CHILDREN!
My home is not well-suited to guests with babies or young children. Travelers must bring their own crib, high chair, gates for the stairs, plastic covers for electrical outlets and any other equipment their baby or young child would need.
My house is far from baby-proof. None of the kitchen or bathroom base cabinets has a child lock. None of the electrical outlets has a cover. The house has five levels, each separated by an open half-flight of stairs. Extension cords are in use in every room and are connected to, among other things, lamps, radios, mp3 players and a light weight vacuum cleaner. Hot tub chemicals must be kept in the laundry room, up out of a young child’s reach. I also recommend that guests with babies or young children move the remote control units for the TVs and Blu-Ray players from the coffee tables to surfaces out of a baby's reach. I expect other hazards exist that I haven't mentioned. In short, guests with babies or young children will almost certainly need to be more vigilant than they are at home in order to keep their baby or young child safe in my home.
I live a two-hour drive from my mountain home and expect to continue to enjoy it with family and friends when the property is not booked. I completely refurbished the house and it was available to rent for the first time in February 2013. We enjoy the hot tub year round, adjusting the water temperature as the weather changes. Kids love the bubble jets and multi-colored lights in all seasons.
Jane Carol Glendinning purchased this house in 1993
The property is in a wonderful location to enjoy downhill skiing, riding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, and golf, hiking in the Green Mountains, biking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, hot air balloon rides, antiquing and much more at other times of the year.
The combination of privacy in the woods, great mountain views and convenient access to Killington Ski Area in the winter and other attractions and outdoor activities at other times of the year make this a wonderful mountain location.
A small parking area located 500 feet from my driveway makes it possible to ski onto Killington's Homestretch Ski Trail and ski down to the Skyeship to purchase lift tickets. At the end of the day, you can return to your car via Homestretch Ski Trail and drive a few hundred feet up to the house.
We stayed at this house for a ski weekend with friends and it was the perfect fit! Plenty of room for everyone, clean and convenient, and it was a pleasure working with the home owner. The house is super close to the mountain (one of the trails go right past the house) and right near downtown as well. We hung in one night and played board games by the fire. The other night we went downtown to listen to live music. It was a great trip & this house was perfect for what we were looking for!
This accomodation offered a wonderful relaxed setting for a holiday with family.
The accomodation was lovely, cosy and bright, well appointed and equipped, and very clean throughout. The owner had obviously thought out details carefully and was very helpful.
We especially enjoyed the quiet location, the cosy fireplace, and the very inviting hot-tub
that was sparkling clean. There were beautiful views of the Green Mountains, and we enjoyed exploring the area, which has something to offer for all seasons. We were pleased to find easy access nearby to hiking opportunities, and for those more adventuresome there
is nearby access to the Appalachian Trail.
We'd love to return and will certainly recommend you to others.
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this gorgeous and convenient Killington house. While die-hard skiers were still hitting the slopes, we chose to explore nearby hiking trails and shopping instead. Favourite spots included the Quechee Gorge (near the quaint shopping district of Woodstock) and Gifford Woods State Park, which is bisected by the Appalachian Trail. The fastidiously clean hot tub was the perfect antidote - and a great spot for cocktails - at the end of the day. Everyone we encountered was incredibly friendly and we definitely felt right at home. The lightening fast internet connection, the fire place and the large bathrooms were the cherry on the top. We look forward to returning!
The house is gorgeous and in perfect condition, with every detail thought out. It is truly ski-on / ski-off (right off the side of the trail Homestretch) and surrounded by beautiful woods. Hot tub was clean and worked wonderfully, separate heat controls in every room, great internet / electric connectivity, easy-to-use and stocked fireplace, large open great room, etc. Really a great deal for 8-10 people. If it is snowing the night you are arriving though just make sure your car can handle going up a hill in the snow to get to this house, otherwise it can be a bit of an adventure :)
Owner is also incredibly accommodating and helpful - she answered immediately any questions we had throughout the weekend and was very understanding with a little emergency we had (one of us lost our car keys) and had to stay extra to receive a replacement key). Recommended all-around.
This property surpassed my expectations. I rented with 7 other adults. The property is very well appointed and it accommodated 8 adults comfortably. The owner was very thorough and precise about her expectations of a renter (something I appreciate as a type "A" personality, I had no questions once I walked in the door...she leaves you notes everywhere)...True pride of ownership in this property.
The location was perfect for our group as we wanted to be somewhat remote from the downtown/or base lodge area, but not so far that it would take us too long to get there when we wanted to (5-10 minute drive to base lodge and 15 minute drive to restaurants and nightly entertainment). The outside hot tub is a great bonus. I will definitely utilize this property again.
The house was WONDERFUL. We had a group of 30 somthing adults looking to ski for the weekend and it was perfectly located (walk to the trail! basically a ski in - ski out property) and exactly what we wanted for our weekend in Killington. The house was clean, up to date and exactly as described. We will definitely be back!!
My home is located less than one mile from the Killington Mountain Resort Ski Area road to Bear Mountain lifts and base lodge;
You can watch skiers and snowboarders on Killington's Homestretch Trail from the house by day and snowcats grooming Homestretch after the lifts close.
Guests may also drive just 500 feet down Great Trail Road from my driveway and park in a small area adjacent to Killington’s Home Stretch Trail. Before the lifts open, guests can make first tracks skiing and snowboarding down the mountain to the Skyeship, one of Killington’s high-speed, heated gondolas, where lift tickets for Killington's five mountains are available.
If some members of a guest's party prefer to head home before others, they can ski back to their car, drive a few hundred yards up to my house, relax in the hot tub or in front of the wood-burning fireplace and pick the others up later in the day.
Photos of the Great Trail Road parking area and a view of the Home Stretch Ski Trail from the parking area are posted in this listing.
