5 Bedrooms plus loft. Upstairs: Bedroom 3 - 1 queen & 2 twins; Bedroom 4 - set of bunkbeds & 1 twin; Bedroom 5- 1 queen & 4 twins; Loft - 1 full and 1 twin. Downstairs: Bedroom 1 - 1 queen; Bedroom 2 - trundle bed (sleeps 2).
As advertised, there was everything at the house, except food and drink which we brought. The house was very clean and well maintained. The 5 children enjoyed sleeping together in the 5 bed bedroom. Plenty of comfortable sleeping available for the adults. All the amenities, hot tub (very clean), ping pong, foosball, darts, etc were heavily used.
The wood stove heated the main room very well, and was well stocked with seasoned wood.
The 10 skiers skied every day at Okemo which was a short 15 minute trip from the house.
The 4 non-skiers made a 20 mile trip to Quechee, where they enjoyed a visit to Simon Pearce, a restaurant and glass bowing facility located next to a waterfall. The glass products availble for purchase were pricey, but beautiful. They also visited Calvin Coolidge's Estate which was very close to the house.
Breakfast was the only meal ate out at THE CAFE AT DE-LIGHT in Ludlow which was very good.
I will strongly recommend The Snowy Owl Farmhouse to relatives and friends.
I organize an outdoor adventure group in NYC and was looking for a cabin around Killington for a group of ~16. Even before we arrived, Joan was excellent with communication and sent information in a timely manner. Upon arriving, the cabin was exactly what was advertised. There is plenty of room and beds and could easily sleep more than we had in the group. All the rooms, especially the kitchen, were well furnished and stocked with the basics. As if this wasn't enough, there is a game room downstairs and a hot tub. Everything is labeled and there are clear instructions how to use certain pieces of equipment (ie: hot tub, wood burning stove). Overall, if you are looking for a great cabin for a large group with all the amenities, look no further.
This is a beautiful property that easily accomodated 14 adults and 2 kids. House is gorgeous and extremely well-stocked, with nice linens, kitchen needs (2 refrigerators), shower supplies, and tons of toys for the kids to play with. Flat Screens in every room (including a large screen in living room). Perfect place for our annual VT Super Bowl / Ski Trip. Approx 20 minutes to Killington Base Lodge. Long Trail Brewing Co. is approx 2 miles up the road.
Joan was great to work with, very responsive and accomodating. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and will consider it for future ski trips. Excellent experience from beginning to end.
This was the second year that we stayed at the house. Three families with practically grown kids had plenty of room. House is stocked with everything in more than ample supply, towels, linnens, paper products, spices etc. Everything works and is in excellent condition. This is a unique house with character.
We skiied at both Okemo and Killington. Best possible location to split time between these two mountains.
Joan is the best to work with. She responds promptly, sends an abundance of information for the area and keeps you informed on everything that is going on. She even delivered snow right before our arrival and great skiing temperatures for our stay.
We look forward to visiting again next year
It's hard to find homes that can comfortably fit16 hockey moms, but this house was perfect. The sleeping arrangments couldn't be better (no pull out couches), and the dining area sat all 16. The living room was a little cozy for games and dancing, but we made it work with lots of laughter. Lots of great trails, and even a nice hilly road next door for the fitness buff. Owners are very nice to work with as well.
Perfectly situated between Okemo and Killington, the two best ski mountains in Vermont, makes an ideal location for winter and summer fun. The mountains offer all the winter sports and in the summer they have the great golf courses, water slide, and mountain bike riding on top of Killington. The house is on a snowmobile trail and next to a state park for hiking, mountain biking, x-country skiing, pan for gold and find ruins or you can take a long walk over to the Calvin Coolidge Homestead. Minutes away are the lakes for swimming, boating and fishing. Ten to fifteen minutes can put you on Long Trail or take you to beautiful Woodstock with its Billings Farm Museum, art galleries, fine restaurants, and shops. Also close to Appalachian Trail and rock climbing. In the other direction (30 min+) is the charming village of Weston with its country stores, Inns for fine dining and the Weston Playhouse. Come in the fall and enjoy the beautiful foliage. A great area to come to play or relax.
Other Activities: Also X-country ski, snowmobile, pan for gold, find old ruins, rock-climb, downhill ski, snowshoe, hike, antique shops, golf, water slides, bungee thin
Golf: Near Killington Golf, Woodstock and Okemo courses.
Ski: The house is between Okemo-Jackson Gore and Killington. Also close, Suicide Six and Pico.
