Adorable Cozy Condo for a family of 5 but no more than 6 can fit comfortably. [If you love skiing and wish to book for 3 months or more contact the owner for 2018 winter months.] Located in Seasons trailside ski-in/ski-out condo village this is an actual slope-side unit. The perfect location is directly off a main ski trail. In winter, you ski-out from our condo building door down to the side trail (visible from the living room and balcony) to the first Mount Snow ski lift. No waiting for a ride, or for an elusive shuttle! You are so close you can come and go as you please. Ski home to eat a hearty lunch in your own condo, and be back to the slopes for the afternoon. When returning to the condo take the "season pass trail," where you will see a turn off and a sign that says "Expert skiers only". The sign's main function is to make you aware that the trail is narrowing in size when skiing directly back to the condo unit. Your other option is to take the wider trail that goes underneath the road (directly behind the condo) and brings you to a set of stairs that leads you to the front of the condo building. We are conveniently located next to the Seasons Sports Center. This condo unit conveniently has a private ski locker for your equipment. Inside, is a spacious open-plan accommodation for 6 people including a fully equipped kitchen. Eat at the breakfast bar or in the formal dining room. Enjoy cable on the large screen TV, wireless internet (wifi), DVD and stereo. Internet has just been upgraded for easy streaming. Get cozy next to a fire in the fieldstone fireplace - free firewood is provided outside the building in the wood house to the left of the building as you exit. The master bedroom features a cozy queen size bed, TV with cable, DVD and private bath with Jacuzzi/shower. A second full bath serves the twin bedroom (also with TV/cable and linens that turn the twins into a king bed) and the queen size pullout sofa in the living room. The washer/dryer is off the kitchen. This unit is five steps up from ground level rather than partly underground. This means bigger windows, lots of light, and a spacious feel. Our unit was completely repainted, carpeted, and in 2012. Bathrooms, window treatments, and living room were just updated in 2013! Linens are included and the unit contains an abundance of extra pillows and blankets, in addition to the new comforters and shams on the beds.
In the Evening! The fabulous Seasons Amenities Center is in very close proximity to the condo. It is the next building down from our building. It is an amazing Sports Center with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, hot tub, internet, sauna, exercise room, ping-pong, & foosball (small user fee). In the evening, you and your family may enjoy a game of ping pong before relaxing in the hot tub, sauna, and indoor pool (remember to bring bathing suits). In summer, the Amenities Center has a heated outdoor pool and tennis with free equipment loan. Or perhaps you'd rather unwind, curl up in front of a blazing fire in front of their very impressive fieldstone fireplace. However you decide to spend your time, you are sure to enjoy your stay!
Other Fun Activities: Enjoy beautiful mountain views from our windows or at the 18-hole championship Mount Snow Golf course. If you fly you may want to visit the private airport located at the golf course. Nearby Lake Whittingham offers canoe and kayak rentals and a scenic cruise.
We've long enjoyed a visit to the nearby Adams Family Farm including a daytime or evening sleigh ride (hayride in the fall) to a lovely cottage in the woods where steaming hot cocoa is served and someone always takes on the challenge of playing the working player piano. The Farm includes an extensive petting zoo for the kiddies and a shop with charming Vermont products.
The town of West Dover offers many excellent restaurants (Dot's for Breakfast, The Roadside, Dover Forge), several video stores, and a cinema showing 3 or 4 first-run movies at all times. Fifteen minutes away is Wilmington, a classic Vermont town with churches, shops selling Vermont crafts and antiques, additional fine and family restaurants, as well as a Shaw's supermarket and the True-Value 'hardware' store which is really a general store. The condo has "The Dish" magazine for you to make reservations.
In summary, this well-maintained condo will provide your family with the perfect home-away-from-home for a fun and memorable vacation or a romantic getaway for two!+ More
