I coach a high school soccer team, and every summer we take our returning varsity players on a bonding trip. It's not easy finding a place that sleeps 12 or 13 -- but this was perfect. The house is warm and welcoming, with lots of different areas to interact but spacious enough so that it never felt crowded. There is every amenity imaginable, in a gorgeous setting. The cookout in the backyard overlooking the mountains was a real highlight. We kayaked on the nearby reservoir, did a trail run on a nearby mountain, enjoyed the very friendly town of Waterbury, and went to Burlington and Colchester for a ropes course and paintball. We could not have asked for more, and the owners are very eager to work with. To mix sports metaphors, our soccer team hit a grand slam with this property.
