This was our second stay at your beautiful home. Once again we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We look forward to returning the next year.Thank you.
We loved this house and we would definitely be coming back. It is in a very quite and nice area and the house has everything a family would need and look for. It was just a nice place to kick back and relax and if you have kids to let them enjoy some board games. I have never had such a carefree stay anywhere.
This is the second winter season that we have taken this house and we have had a great experience both times. It really is very child friendly. We don't bring any toys with us anymore because the house is well "stocked" with toys for children aged 3-4 and above. The house is about 12-15mins away from the Stratton Mountain drop off point and which makes it an easy daily commute to the slopes.
The house was exactly as it was described in the listing. It was clean and well maintained. Owners were very responsive and made the process very easy. The house had everything you need in the kitchen and a cabinet full of games to play. The basement was a great space for kids to play even though we didn't use it. The WiFi was a nice bonus. I would definately stay here again and would recommend it to others.
We LOVE this house, and look forward to renting it again in the future! The house is clean and bright, and offered more than enough living space for our family of four. It has a crib and clean linens and towels, and the washer and dryer are very handy. Our two boys loved the games, books, movies, and toys that are there for our use. Also the house is only minutes from Stratton mountain. We also found the home owners to be extremely pleasant and easy to rent from. Overall, this place is FANTASTIC!
The house is surrounded by mature forest and has a century-old stonewall crossing the property. Build a snowman on the front lawn in winter or enjoy a game of badminton in summer. Build a castle in the sandbox. Admire crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils and tulips that bloom in the flower garden in May/June or pick delicious blackberries in Aug/Sept. Stratton (15 minutes) offers hiking, skiing, golf, horseback riding, kids camp, gondola rides, etc. Bromley, Magic, Okemo and Mt. Snow mountains are all within 40-minute drive. Jamaica State Park is only 5 minutes away. It offers playground, trails, swimming hole, biking, fishing. Also, twice a year, the park hosts water releases for white-water enthusiasts. Manchester (25 minutes) is home to outlet shops, fine restaurants, movie theater, art center, etc.
Other Activities: In the fall, we love to relax on the deck or front lawn or hike in the nearby Jamaica State Park. Our favorite activity any time of the year but especially in the fall is to take a gondola up Stratton mtn and then take a ~20 min hike to the tower to take in a breathtaking 360 view of the mountains and the foliage changing color. In winter we go skiing on Stratton and Bromley. Lately, the kids are into skate skiing, and we use the Viking Nordic Center ~20 min away to cross country ski. In summer we like to gather strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries or drive 15 min to Townshend Dam to swim in the lake and play at the playground or drive few minutes to Ball Mtn Lake Dam for the beautiful views or to Jamaica State Park for hiking and swimming and playing at the playground.
