My response time: I always respond promptly to any inquiry by phone or e-mail. My spam catcher occasionally stops these e-mails from getting to me, so if you don't hear back quickly, please try calling.
The area: Cavendish is a quiet town, located 7 miles from Ludlow and the Okemo Ski Resort. The Cottage at Stone Walls is situated on 75 acres outside of the village. There are many historic, tourist, and outdoor attractions in the area, but if you want peace and quiet, you have only to stay around the property and you will not be disturbed. Writing tables in every room, beautiful sunny views to inspire you. Plenty of room for your children to play and run around outside, tire swings, hammocks, etc.
References: I would be happy to put you in contact with previous guests of the Cottage, many of whom return year after year.
10 minutes to Okemo, easy access Ascutney, Bromley and Killington/Pico.
Wonderful walks in the woods, bicycling through back roads, holing up to read a good book (or write one!)
Horseback riding is not far away, and there are several golf courses in the area.
30 minutes to Woodstock, perhaps for a delicious meal at the Woodstock Inn or dinner at Simon Pearce just a few miles farther on the road. The Children's Science Museum is less than an hour north, between Norwich and Hanover. Other villages to visit: Chester, Weston, Grafton, to name a few.
Walk down the side road to the 20-mile stream and the flat rocks or a favorite swimming hole. Take your drinks and picnic to the dock at the small pond on the property and just enjoy the day.
It's also a relaxing place to stay while helping your son or daughter consider colleges in the area!
Whatever your desire for a getaway in New England, The Cottage at Stone Walls will welcome you.
Golf: I am not a golfer, but know there are golf courses in the area (Woodstock, Weathersfield, Ludlow/Tyson). I'd be happy to help you if this is what you are interested in doing during your visit.
Ski: Okemo Ski area is about 10-15 minutes from here.. Also within an hour are Killington, Bromley, Stratton, and Magic Mountain Ski areas. We are approximately 2 hours from Stowe.
