Cozy Mountain House
West Dover, Vermont
About the property
This is an endearingly cozy and comfortable home, minutes from Mt. Snow, that sleeps 14 and is a choice pick for a family or group of friends looking for a great location close to skiing in winter, having fun in spring and summer, or viewing the fall foliage in autumn. Since this home is close to everything, you won’t be spending your vacation in the car! And it has great amenities: an outdoor hot tub, a fireplace to keep cozy during the cold nights, and incredible views of the nearby mountains.
This home has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, which provides ample room for up to 14 guests to stay comfortably. The bunk beds are popular with the kids, the queen beds are perfect for couples and single adults, and all are very comfortable. Fresh linens, plenty of towels and paper products are provided.
Large windows allow in plenty of natural light and allow you to see the gorgeous mountain landscape from the comfort of inside your home. The deck has plenty of room for people to conversate, and the hot tub is spectacularly placed so you can see the vistas while you soak your muscles.
There is a grassy backyard which is perfect for kicking the soccer ball around, or having a catch with a football or baseball, or playing a fun game of tag with the kids.
The kitchen is ample and stocked with the things you will need to cook for your group. Next to the kitchen is the dining room and a family room with a fireplace, along with a flat screen TV. Every room has Wi-Fi, and there are plenty of places to curl up with a good book. The house is tastefully decorated and will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive.
The Perfect Day
Start the day by cooking up the crew a brunch in the kitchen so they have the fuel for the activities that are to come. Having a morning cup of coffee or tea while looking out over the mountains is also an experience which cannot be missed, better if you catch the sunrise as well! Then, it is time for fun. A quick drive brings you right to Mt. Snow, or if you are here in spring or summer, a quick ride will also bring you to the Mt. Snow golf course. You can also fish or have fun on any one of a number of lakes and rivers in the area, as well.
Since you are close to the mountain, you can come home for lunch, and rest up those muscles for another round or two of skiing. Or, if you are here during the farming season, find some fresh, organic produce for dinner, or grab some eggs to make tomorrow’s breakfast even better. Start a fire in the fireplace to fill the home with the wholesome warmth and glow of a wood fire, or you can relax once again in the hot tub. One particularly amazing experience is going into the hot tub while it is snowing, the sound of the flakes hitting the trees on their way down is magical. End the day curled up by the fire with your favorite beverage and a good book, or put on a movie or sports game, or you can have a board gaming night with the kids. Then it is off to bed, rest up for the next day of fun, adventure, and exploration!
Mt. Snow is so close that you can go skiing whenever the heart desires. Take lots of breaks, or you can spend the whole day at the mountain, however you feel, that is the benefit of renting this home, incredible convenience and choices. The Mt. Snow golf course is also nearby, which means you can grab your clubs and be taking warmup puts within minutes.
Everything you need to make your vacation a success is south on Route 100, there are grocery and convenience stores to stock your kitchen and refrigerator with your group’s favorite foods. Don’t forget to check out the local farms and cheese factories as well, and you can pair your meals and snacks with wines and beers you can find at local wineries and breweries, or in the shops. If you are staying during the berry picking season (June to October), that is an amazing way to taste the best that Vermont has to offer as well.
There are bars and restaurants that you can find along Route 100 as well, if you want someone else to do the cooking and mixology. There are stores to shop in, including galleries that have the works of local artists, perfect for picking up a gift or the next item or knick-knack for your home to act as a memento of your great vacation.
The lakes and rivers offer fishing, swimming in summer, rafting and tubing, and make a great place to relax, as well. There are also trails to explore, hike, or run, great ideas for those looking for exercise and to experience the amazing nature and weather Vermont has to offer. Also ideal for those looking to walk through a fall paradise, where you can smell, see, and hear the leaves changing and preparing for winter!
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, it is a perfect time to visit, and we know you will be happy!
