My wife and our infant son escaped the city to Amsden, VT. The house was WAY more than we needed but perfectly suited in every way. The property is basically like a summer camp. Fire pit, pool, toys, fireplace, grass, hiking, river....My wife (sort of high maintenance) wished the pool was heated but who cares -- it was hot outside and the water was so refreshing. Great towns to explore with a short drive. Great hiking. The stars are incredible and the silence is recharging in the most spiritual sense. The owners are responsive, generous and take great pride in their home. Strongly recommend especially for a larger group like two families with several kids.
