Don’t let the name fool you. When the ice melts at Mount Snow, it’s obvious why the Green Mountains were named such, and the mountain resort and surrounding area make a great warm weather baby boomer travel destination.
After a 3.5-hour drive from Poughkeepsie, your first stop should the scenic chair lift ride where you’ll take in the views of a spectacular section of the Green Mountain National Forest.
Later, gear up for golf, hiking, biking or festival visits in a countryside that offers as much to do in summer or fall as in the cold.
Mount Snow, both the name of a mountain and a ski area, is located at the midway point of southern Vermont’s scenic and historic Molly Stark By-Way in the small town of West Dover, just north of Wilmington. You’ll find a range of accommodations in the area, from the larger Grand Summit Hotel at Mount Snow to smaller hotels, lodges and bed and breakfasts.

Right at Vermont's closest big mountain – Mount Snow - to major metro areas, Timber Creek is a townhouse community cloistered among 125 acres of wooded glades.
Timber Creek is space. Enough space to comfortably spread out in beautifully appointed two to five bedroom townhouses. Wood burning fireplaces in spacious living rooms, large windows with views of sky, trees and mountains, efficient kitchens with modern conveniences, large master bedrooms, bathrooms on every floor, some with whirlpool tubs, washers and dryer and plenty of storage. Some units have hot tubs and saunas. All units have decks and patios facing the woods and the mountains. Walks are shoveled, roads are cleared and wood is delivered to your porch.
The slopes are only a few minutes away by Timber Creek’s designated shuttle. Snow shoeing and cross country skiing is available right at Timber Creek. And, when you have enjoyed the outdoors, you can come inside the Sugarhouse for a soak in the hot tub or a swim in the pool, a game of racquet ball or a work out in the fitness room. Or, you can just relax in the library or lounge which features Wi-Fi.
With four seasons, -ever-changing vistas, shopping, dining and culture, Timber Creek is the perfect escape from the everyday busy life. Whether you are looking to become an owner or rent one of the units – we welcome you to visit our community.
Timber Creek is directly across the road from Mount Snow on Route 100, just a few miles north of the town of Dover, Vermont and less than two hours from Hartford, two and a half hours from Boston and a little over four hours from New York City by car. Rail, air and bus connections are available.
