We rented this property last year for the season. It was a nice ride up to VT for the weekends from Boston (much closer than northern VT, and an easier ride with great restaurants along the way) Once we were there we always felt relaxed There are great family-friendly ski resorts nearby-we taught our 3.5 year old son to ski and he loved it! We cross-country skiied, went snow-shoeing, tried multiple restaurants (& breweries!!), visited farms for wagon rides, maple syrup farms, museums, the country store. The list goes on. TONS to do in the area. We are a young family with young kids. The house is an open floor plan, so great for kids to play but also be within site. The rooms are all cozy, and it was just an easy rental all around. We would rent again, but our son is now old enough to start sports programs in our area. Otherwise we would've snapped this up again. It's a great deal.
