Early one March, one winter storm actually covered the first floor of many buildings. The chairs and the entrance area on the Villager lift had to be plowed out with a backhoe because they were under the snow. The deck in the middle of this Mountain Watch picture is actually a floor above ground level. To rent a condo, Contact Us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Stratton Mountainside Ski-In Condos
Stratton Mountain Lodging is often provided in individually owned condos, made available for weekend rentals.
The Mountainside Condos and Townhomes at Stratton are also called "Ski-In", "Slopeside" or "Trailside" units. These ski homes are all located on the right hand side of the access road (entering the Stratton Ski Resort). Several complexes are are close or in the Stratton Village. It is generally easy to get from them to the slope. However, there may be a block (or so) walk from any individual ski condo or home, depending on it's specific location in the Stratton Resort complex. Some mountainside units also have shuttle access to the Stratton Village base area.
The mountainside units are generally located at the base of Stratton Mountain (and not built up into the slopes as they are at Okemo, VT.) There are a number of Mountain Watch, Village Watch, OberTal, Slopeside and Landmark units for rent. Only a few of the high end Mountain Reach, Snowbridge and Solstice townhomes are ever available for rent. Please click on any of the photos below to go directly to the specific complex.

The top floor Mountain Watch Penthouse units have a third bath and a large loft, that is sometimes sub-divided into an additional third bedroom.
