Met our needs

  • 4 of 5

This house was just fine for our four adults, three kids and one dog. It was clean, but not pristine (again, fine for us!). Good location to ski Mad River and Sugarbush and get to all the Mad River Valley haunts. Comfortable to hang out in after a day in the snow. I would recommended that you have 4-wheel or all-wheel drive to get up the road to the house.

The one thing that we wish had been made clear to us is that this is NOT a whole house rental - there is a basement apartment that was occupied, various people going in and out, including at least two different dogs. There was no problem at all, just unexpected.

Overall, a good stay.

Nice location and enough beds...thats about it

  • 3 of 5

The house was overall a let down from our previous trip(Jay Peak). The house was clean with a BIG exception of the KITCHEN. We were planning on cooking since the ad said full kitchen. While there were plenty of plates silverware and glasses, there was no big pot(for pasta) or a large skillet. We expected that since the house can have 10 people sleep there. We ended up spending an additional $100 or so per person because we had to eat out. The other thing was there was rat droppings in the kitchen area and we had to wash all the dishes before we drank or ate our limited breakfast options. Overall if the kitchen was updated with some basic pots and pans and if the cabinets were cleaned it would be a 5 star.

  • 5 of 5

The home was overall clean,neat and efficient.

Fire wood supplied.I love that stone fire place! IT was perfect for what we were looking for. Everything in the home works and there was no hassles with anything.

I would definitely rent this place again!

Dated and dirty

  • 2 of 5

This property has the potential to be nice - if only it were clean. The shower had mold in it, there were cobwebs everywhere. Also, there are not 4 bedrooms - there are 3 bedrooms and a loft, which was very disappointing for those who had to stay in the loft. It is very close to Mount Ellen (not the main mountain).

The house is very skier friendly with a ski locker and an area for changing into and storing equipment. The fireplace was great as well.

Great location, nice property, owner was very helpful

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this property was very enjoyable. The owner (Gary) was very helpful especially in light of the poor skiing conditions this year and gave us several options for working around the conditions. Even though it was raining and icy on the slopes we thoroughly enjoyed our stay because the house is convenient to just about anywhere. When we had to stay in, we had a rustic, spacious, family area and open kitchen to relax in. Would definitely stay here again!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The fireplace was wonderful to sit around and warm up after a day of skiing. Plenty of storage room near the entry to hang your equipment and clothing to dry off for the night. Large open kitchen with bar stools on living room side to sit and hang out while dinner is cooking.

A little more information as far as layout: First floor has 1 BR with King bed and 1 Bathroom. Second floor has 3 BR. First BR has 2 Twins, Second bedroom has 1 Full, and the last and largest room has 3 twins. We had five cars in our group and they all fit in the parking area. There is a caretaker who lives in the basement of the house, I never saw or heard him though. Would stay again.
