Overview

About the property

One Of Killington’s Few Truly High-End Large Luxury Homes Is Now Available

Available to families and couples only, MountainView boasts breathtaking, unobstructed, panoramic vistas of Killington, Rams Head, Snowdon, Skypeak and Pico from almost every room in this 5800sf luxury home. No expense has been spared in creating the accommodations that will provide your family a very memorable experience. MountainView is minutes to the slopes and directly in the heart of Downtown Killington. It is within a mile of a grocer, various dining establishments and nightlife.

This large home provides three levels of luxury and comfort. The main floor features a vast, open floor plan that incorporates the kitchen, dining room, living room and sun room. All wrapped around a large stone fireplace. Floor to ceiling sliding patio doors showcase the amazing views. A large open gourmet kitchen, with an island and cooktop, is ideal for entertaining large groups. The kitchen is equipped with new skillets, sauce pans, baking pans, roosting pans and utensils. Mountain View is a chefs nirvana. We also can arrange for an onsite chef to grocery shop, prepare your meal and clean-up after your gourmet dinner.

Visit the lower level, with its floor to ceiling patio doors and breathtaking mountain views. This level includes a custom bar with captain chairs, plasma TV, wet bar, ice maker and fridge. Watch the skiers while playing on the Olhausen Slate pool table, or workout on the top-of-the-line universal gym. Slip into the five person sauna, or play a game of pinball on the Stein “Pirates of the Caribbean” limited edition pinball machine. Walk outside to the wrap around lighted staircase that leads to your private Hot tub patio featuring a Hotspring’s eight person Grande Spa, the largest in the Hotspring’s line. Don’t worry, your views of the mountain are still breathtaking as you relax in the fresh hot water, added for your rental prior to your arrival.

Get ready for a good night sleep. Each bed in MountainView is the most luxurious Simmons Beautyrest money can buy. There are six bedrooms. Two have king beds and their own private bath. One has a queen bed with a private bath. One bedroom has four twin beds and a private bath. One bedroom has a queen bed, adjacent to a bedroom with two bunk beds (two twins and two full-size beds). These two bedrooms share a bathroom.

The large entry foyer with abundant seating, is great space to get the kids ready for a day of skiing. It is connected to a two bay insulated and heated garage. MountainView has a large wood burning fireplace. (We provide the firewood.) Your one dilemma? Do you sit in the sun-drenched luxurious home all morning relaxing, listening to the crackle of the fire and absorbing the amazing views……..or do you ski? If you do decide to stay home and relax, we can schedule onsite masseuse.

About Bob McGovern

My wife Erin and I purchased MountainView in 2000. It was completely renovated at a cost of over 750k. No expense was spared throughout the years maintaining this luxury house. We have had 15 years of enjoyment with our family and friends. Our son is now in high school, and his sport schedules limit our ability to visit this amazing home. It is now time to let other families enjoy this one of a kind Killington property.

Bob McGovern purchased this house in 2000

Why Bob McGovern chose Killington Area

We purchased MountianView when our son was a year old. We have shared many holidays and seasons with our family and friends in this spectacular home. Our son, and our friends children learned how to ski at both Killington Mountain and Pico Ski Resort. Snowmen, Snowball fights and "snow football" were regular happenings in the front yard. Always followed by hot cocoa and a warm fire.

In the summer Killington has so much to offer. There are many lakes in the area, hiking, swimming, kayaking, golfing and so many more wonderful activities that would fill our summer vacations. The front yard has hosted many wiffleball games, flag football and water balloon fights. Local art fairs, beer and wine festivals and the amazing farmers market that is only 15 minutes away. The breezy mountain air always seems to be the perfect temperature.

The Fall brought other traditions. Apple and pumpkin picking, Corn Mazes, hiking, the Vermont State Fair, and of course the breathtaking foliage. The always colorful mountain range that sits right outside the windows. This special house shaped our son's childhood, and created lasting memories for all of us who spent time together there.

What makes this house unique

The homes many bedrooms with private baths make the house incredibly comfortable. Everyone has their private area, yet can come together in the many community areas throughout the house. Killington offers so many area activities and destinations, yet the house's many amenities allow a day at home to be a perfect vacation day. All in a home with a view that is unbeatable! Every room showcases the beautiful mountain range which is spectacular in every season.

Spacious Vermont Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mountain View is a lovely property, very spacious, well appointed and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the hot tub after our hikes in the mountains! I would recommend it to any large family or extended family. The grounds and flower beds were beautiful as well.

Perfect House with a Gorgeous View!

  • 5 of 5

We came up for our wedding week with a group of friends and family and had a wonderful time at the Mountain View house. Ski conditions were not the best which made us appreciate the house even more! There was plenty of space for the kids to play and multiple areas for the adults to relax and enjoy the view! The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and the dining table is large enough to fit everyone comfortably.

When we had a question about the hot tub the property manager, Heidi, was right on top of it and got back to us immediately. Everyone had a really great time and it absolutely made our wedding week so special!

Family Ski Week

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed the stay at this beautiful home-perfectly designed for our large family_14 in all stayed very comfortably in this house!

Very close to the ski trails and near enough to area restaurants and ski shops.

Recommend it for those families who may also have a large group that would like to stay together for a few days.

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our stay at Mountain View. We enjoyed an extended long weekend with our family and friends. This house had everything you could need and more! Dealing with the owner was a breeze and from the moment we arrived we knew we would never want to leave. The views were amazing, the hot tub was relaxing after a long day of skiing, the sauna, pool table, pinball machine and spacious accommodations were the icing on the cake. Highly recommend this property - and hope to rent it once again!

Excellent house and fantastic long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Our family (mom and dad and 3 out of 4 grown daughters and their signicant others plus one other couple) rented this beautiful home for a long weekend this past weekend. From the moment we arrived on Friday until we left this morning we enjoyed this large, well decorated, well thoughtout house. There was room for all of us and plenty to do. We played pool, had cocktails and dinner and the enjoyed the large fireplace in the living room. Saturday we had a great time shredding Killington which had great snow and Short lift lines. The kids loved the hot tub when we got back. Saturday night we had a great dinner at home and then piled into a free van to the Pickle Barrel. The snow storm started Saturday night and two of the family had to leave but the rest of us enjoyed epic snow and an empty mountain on Sunday until the wind became too much. We highly recommend this house. The owners were very easy to deal with and they have an onsite manager who was helpful And friendly. It was a very positive experience and we talked about renting it again next year.

Fun Family Time at Magnificent MountainView

  • 5 of 5

The house was all lit up to welcome us and was beautiful inside and out. The views were spectacular and enjoyed from most rooms in the house and from the hot tub. There was plenty of space and privacy for all and we enjoyed using the sauna, hot tub, pool table and pin ball machine. Bonus to have a heated garage, as well! In addition, the property manager, Heidi, got right back to us when we a couple of questions. I would highly recommend this property.
