I booked this property as a surprise birthday party for my husband's 50th. We had 11 people staying (5 adults, 6 kids under 16) so needed a large home to accommodate everyone.
I've booked on HomeAway quite a bit and this was one of the nicest properties we've stayed at. The listing is perfect, but the pictures don't do this home justice. Everything is super clean and designed and decorated with thought and care. The bedrooms and bathrooms are huge and plenty of room for larger groups without feeling claustrophobic. The home is well stocked with plenty of towels, kitchen gadgets and reading material.
The owners are phenomenal and very responsive to all my incessant questions and pestering. They even had a nice gift and birthday card for my husband, which was unexpected and a pleasant surprise. The welcome binder is fantastic and answers any questions you may have.
You will want to bring food with you as the closest major grocery store is about an 40 -50 minutes away. There are a couple of small convenience stores for dry goods and some frozen foods, all are reasonably priced.
Definitely hit Brault's meat market - prices are phenomenal and the native steaks were superb.
I would definitely and strongly recommend this property for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. The area is very remote, but welcoming for people who want to get away and enjoy nature. The skies at night are beautiful!
The internet service is spotty, but to be expected due to the location.
I can't say how much fun we had this weekend at this property. Plenty of room for the kids to run and play outside and a beautiful home for the adults to enjoy. It was absolute perfection and hope to return this winter to enjoy Jay Peak skiing.
