Four of us (2 adults + 2 kids, 10 & 11yo) spent Presidents' Day long weekend here. It was a great experience and we are thinking of coming back for a week in summer as well. The surroundings are very beautiful - meadows, woods, pond and views of the mountains - quiet and secluded. The house is well equipped, comfortable and and tastefully decorated. It is a great place to get away from it all and admire scenic Green Mountains, but once you feel the pull of city offerings, 15 miles drive brings you to Manchester with planty of shopping and dining options. This was third year that we were in this area for a long winter weekend and the routine of horseback riding at Mountain View Ranch nearby, exploration of the winter woods, dining at our favorite spots in Manchester is well rehearsed and much anticipated. The trailheads connecting to Appalachian/Long Trail network are also few miles away and, as other reviewers noted, several skiing resorts are nearby as well. It might not be the most obvious/advertised destination, but it is a great spot to enjoy Vermont.
