We couldn't have had nicer accommodations for a relaxing get together with our young adult children who gathered from different parts of the country for a week in Vermont. We had plenty of space for the nine of us (and our dog)! The location is quiet and private in a lovely woodsy setting. The living space is very comfortable and casual, yet elegant at the same time. We could eat out on the deck in short sleeves during the day and be cozy around the fireplace in the evening.
The kitchen was very well equipped, and there were 2 sizable grocery stores in nearby Manchester, so it was easy to prepare meals. There are lots of restaurants nearby as well. We enjoyed Chauncey's in Arlington, but all the restaurants looked inviting. There are also lots of interesting shops, galleries, and historic spots in the area--way too many to see in a week.
Our family also enjoyed boating, fishing, and hiking at nearby Hapgood Pond, just down the road from the house, and at Emerald Lake State Park, which is just north of Manchester. We didn't get a chance to try out the summer recreational options at Bromley ski area, but there was a lot to do there as well.
Overall, the location of this house is great because there is plenty to do and see in the area, but you can also just relax and have fun at the house. The owner was friendly and helpful, and the property was well maintained. I highly recommend this rental!
