We knew we'd found a great place when the road narrowed, we arrived in the driveway and we saw the view! The home was warm, comfortable and plenty spacious for our multigenerational family vacation. A long sledding hill outside the door, a dead-end country road for cross country skiing, a kitchen roomy enough for a couple of cooks, and 3- season porches that we're warm in the morning sun were all major pluses. A note with a package filled with the makings for s'mores, and marshmallow sticks by the fireplace were nice welcoming touches. Michael (the owner) contacted us mid-week to make sure everything was okay for us.
Brattleboro is nearby and offers excellent food. We highly recommend Three Stones (make reservations; it's tiny) and Amy's Bakery Arts Cafe. We were delighted by the Brattleboro Museum's annual domino tumble. There are also lots of interesting shops, which we did not explore during this visit. For yarn enthusiasts, a tour of the Green Mountain Spinnery in Putney was very interesting.
We think the property and the area would be beautiful places to be in any season.
