Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

This is a secluded mountainside retreat. Perfect for a getaway for two and room enough for 5 it is located on nine private acres that sit just above the White River. It is only minutes from Killington, Okemo, Sugarbush and Pico. With Killington being only 14 miles away… it’s a skier’s delight!

The Chalet offers a fully equipped custom built kitchen, a gas powered VT Castings stove, 1 full bathroom, flat screen satellite TV in the living room, and 2 sleeping areas: 1 bedroom with a full size bed, and a private sleeping loft with a king size bed, plus the love seat in the living room pulls out to a twin size bed.

At the Chalet there are sleds for the two great sledding runs. Snow shoes are available also. Jump on your snow mobiles from the driveway and head out for a ride through the scenic mountain trails. If you’re a cross country ski lover you will enjoy the meadow trails nearby.

As breathtaking this area is in the winter, the spring, summer, and fall will capture a place in your heart. The babbling brook that runs through the property brings beautiful music to the bountiful lush green canopy of this part of the Green Mountains. Swimming, fishing, tubing, and walking along the White River are just a step outside the front door.

There are many nearby natural wonders that just have to be seen. Quechee Gorge, Texas Falls, and Moss Glen Falls are among a few of our favorites. The quaint New England towns of Woodstock, Quechee, Randolph, Barnard , and Rochester are a must to visit for shopping, antiquing, and restaurants. Nearby also offers Vermont Cabot Cheese outlet and Ben & Jerry’s.

Whether you are an active person that wants to celebrate the outdoors, a person looking for solitude that just wants to warm up next to a cozy fire, you will find this mountainside gem rejuvenating

About Janie Feinberg

My name is Janie Feinberg. I grew up on Long Island and went to Connecticut College for Women and Brooklyn College. I own a School Improvement company that administers to the needs of failing schools. I have two grown daughters and two fabulous granddaughters. I love animals and you will see a photo of my Golden Retriever, Frankie, who passed away a year ago.

Janie Feinberg purchased this chalet in 1968

Why Janie Feinberg chose Killington Area

What makes this piece of property unique! That is a very challenging task to complete without writing a book. In 1968, my then husband and I, NYC school teachers, were late in scheduling our Christmas ski vacation. We ended up at Laolke Lodge (turn left once you come across the river) a log ski house owned by Olive Pratt for the Christmas break and thus started our romance with Gaysville, VT. We fell in love with everybody and everything about Gaysville, VT. At the end of the season, Olive let us know that her brother had 11 acres of land on Vulture MT and was interested in selling the property. “Uncle Buddy” Pratt wanted a used VW bus and we traded that bus for 11 acres of land in 1968. During the winter of 1968-69, we met Uncle Chapin Pratt, and began plans for our log home. My husband and I camped on the land during the summer of 1969. We cut the trees, mixed the mortar, and I,personally, dug out the basement with a huge shovel. Our friends and I camped and everyday worked along side Uncle Chap’s workers. In 1970, we moved to Vermont and had our two girls and 2 dogs. Life happens and in 1982 I was forced to leave Vermont and move back to NY. I did not see our home again for 17years. In 1999, my two daughters and I returned to VT to discover that there had been three owners since I had sold my home. It had been abandoned for 2 winters and was going up on the market in 3 months if back taxes were not met. 3 months later we had our home back and because it was virtually destroyed being abandoned for 2 winters I got it back for what I sold it for! My son-in-law restores homes. Our home had been in two magazines. He looked at the pictures and restored our home. What a magical place it is. The two hand hewed beams in the kitchen and living room were done by Uncle Buddy with his axe. The stone work all came from a 150 year old barn that Uncle Chap tore down. The top log in the dining room was leveled by Wayne Pratt, Uncle Chape’s son, who had the use of only one ey

Amazing weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a small family. My son loved the upstairs sleeping nook and my husband and I had plenty of room in the bedroom. The house is very tastefully done, the design features are impecable. Kitchen came fully equipped and the gas burning heater made the house nice and toasty on a very cold Jan night. 25 min to killington on picturesque route 100. Our dog also loved the space and overall tranquility and made himself right at home. Would definitely stay again!

We loved staying in this cabin in the woods. Our dog enjoyed roaming the extensive property and stayed comfortably in cabin while we were away. Was convenient to skiing at Killington, 15 miles away (30 min drive). Very functional kitchen made meals easy. Den is cozy, we enjoyed watching TV as a family and playing games. The owner was very helpful throughout.

A perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Janie was so kind and the chalet was cozy and just what we needed. We were hoping for a quiet anniversary weekend and got just that! This listing was accurate, the property was clean, private, and clearly cared for. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Gorgeous cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. Ideal retreat for a romantic getaway. So far, one of the best houses in Vermont where we have been. Janie, the owner, is great. Near to killington to ski or Woodstock for a good dinner.

We will go back for sure
