Who Gets The Hermitage Club?

The Hermitage Club, the luxurious private ski club and resort near Mount Snow in southern Vermont, is going up for auction on March 20 along with the lifts and trails of Haystack Ski Mountain. Bids are due by March 16 and Keen-Summit Capital Partners LLC has all the details.

The Hermitage Club came to life in  2011 with a stunning  80,000-square- foot timber-frame clubhouse with plush carpets,$15,000 worth of antler chandeliers,  private lockers done in polished wood,  a vast, elegant dining area, fitness center and spa. Six lifts covered 45 trails, including the nation’s first six-passenger, heated Doppelmayr bubble lift.

The classic Inn at Sawmill Farm of West Dover was added to the property to house guests in 21  elegant rooms. The nearby Deerfield Valley airport was refurbished so guests could fly in on private planes.

Hermitage Club and the slopes and lifts of Haystack Mountain are up for sale.

It was all available to members only— those willing to pay the $65,000.  as well as fees on top of that (such as $1500 for a locker rental) for a “Family Legacy Membership.”

Now, the ski area, clubhouse and resort will be up for auction.  In addition to 834 acres with developable plots, the assets include:

The Hermitage Club and Haystack Ski Mountain: A new 80,000 square-foot lodge/clubhouse with a  full-service spa, bar and restaurant area, mahogany lockers,  indoor pool, bowling, retail and theater.

Ski area and lifts: The lifts include the heated Barnstormer six-pack double chair, two quad chairs and two triples.

The Hermitage Golf Club & Golf Course Clubhouse:

A stalking horse has been named and the opening bids are set at $4,290,000 and with the heated, six-person Barnstormer lift, $8,060,000.
