RENT THIS HOUSE; 'enjoyed, such a nice place to stay' beautiful, spacious' 'wonderful' these are the comments of my renters for THE LAST TEN YEARS, UNTIL NOW. I rented my house to a person against my better judgement. I accepted PayPal for the first time because she said the event was a surprise for her husband. She explained that a check would spoil the surprise. Furthermore she wasn't able to swing the security/deposit. Finally, she convinced me to drop the rental price by $450 for sentimental reasons. I Never suspected that this person would slander me with false accusations after I accepted her personal appeals regarding her situation. Yes, SHE chewed me up, spit me out and SINCERELY WANTS to KILL my reputation, why?

On Friday early afternoon the whole of her group arrived to a fully operating house. Saturday late afternoon the water stopped running. This is when SHE AND HER HUSBAND ARRIVED.

I immediately contacted a highly regarded well drilling and maintenance company, whom arrived at my home promptly. The problem could have been solved in a matter of hours. But efforts getting to the pump failed because, it was buried under months of ice and snow.  

I immediately arranged full access to my neighboring health club (located less than 200 yards from my front door) with indoor heated olympic pool, spa facilities, jacuzzi etc. for the entire group, witch they accepted. This was my sincere effort to ease the burden on them.

In the morning heavy equipment was brought in to dig out and access the well and diagnose and fix the issue. Simultaneously a plumbing company and a master electrician were on site trying to fix the issue as well.

All three contractors collective efforts was a very a costly weekend emergency. But, I knew my guests comfort to be top priority. The three separate contractors assured me the issue could be diagnosed and fixed that day. Much to my dismay it wasn't to be that day. The problem was fixed the next morning.

In good faith I offered them an extended stay for no charge. Mt Snow Resort had better then ever prime time mid winter conditions. They declined.

In resolution I mailed her a letter of apology and a check sum of $1,000.00 for the compensation, with the understanding, cashing it was the full settlement. But, in spite top of all my decent offers, this person demanded a full refund for the nights they occupied my home in exchange for NOT posting a 'SCATHING' review. This was BLACKMAIL. This person also contacted Paypal to get refund money from me. Paypal DENIED their claims and sided with me. I did and do sincerely understand the inconvenience  they endured but, they did stay and use my home fully while enjoying the epic but frigid skiing Mount Snow resort had that weekend. T

Things happen to any one at any time, but, to Blackmail me and defame me is utterly illegal and just wrong.

YES, I am WOUNDED But not dying. Vermont is wonderful, MY HOUSE IS A HAPPY HOUSE and Running well.

Call me, You'll be glad, I assure you.

Robby

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE

  • 1 of 5
DO NOT STAY HERE!!! I reserved Robert's house for a surprise for my husband's 30th birthday. It was family members that were coming and we were excited for a nice relaxing weekend in VT. We were flying in from Atlanta and it took us quite some time to get there and money. I had wanted everything to go smoothly as I had been planning this for quite some time. We weren't able to make it in Friday night (we were staying Friday, Saturday, Sunday) because of the snow, but we made it up Saturday afternoon. When we got there Saturday, we noticed that the water was not working at all. Therefore, we could not flush the toilets, cook clean dishes, shower! We also had two small kids in the house and this made it extremely difficult for us. Robert promised to have it fixed that night....it was not. Then, he promised the next day....it was not. He kept on making promises and we had to spend most of our "vacation" shopping for water, trying to melt snow to put it in the toilets in order to flush them, letting repair men into the house, etc. It was NOT relaxing at all and definitely not enjoyable for any of us. The only reason we kept staying is because he kept promising it would be fixed and I would be out $2800. Save yourself the time and don't rent this house. I am sad that I flew all the way to VT for such an unpleasant experience.

I would have expected him to at least repay us for 2 nights of stay, but he refused to do that. He likes to talk in circles and even insinuated that this was OUR fault that the water was not working-how DARE he!

Save yourself the time and anguish and rent another house.

FAMILY SUMMER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a summer week to visit friends in Brattleboro and had a great time. The house is comfortable and has plenty of room and is situated in a beautiful, wooded setting. Also, the location is great for exploring the surrounding towns and Green Mtn. National Forest. We hiked, canoed, swam and enjoyed the little restaurants around the area. Highly recommended. We will be back.

WONDERFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My Bride and myself used this house for a week on our honeymoon and found it to be just what we were looking for. It is in a nice, quiet, scenic area, is very cozy (the fireplace is stocked with plenty of firewood), big (we didn't even use most of the house), is well stocked, having all the things we needed for daily use, has wonderful large decks to enjoy the cool Vermont air, a beautiful kitchen and eating area that is easy to cook with and serve meals in, and nice couches to relax on.

The house is kept really clean and does not feel like a rental, but like a family uses it, having many small, homey touches such as candles, wall decorations, fun/unique quotes and many other accents. There are many large windows and the heating is easy to use and even. The house is right off a highway so it is easy to get to and fro. All of southern and mid-Vermont is all about 30 minutes to an hour away.

Robby, the owner, truly desires to serve the renters and make sure the house is everything that would make their stay pleasant. He is in touch and good about communication before, during and after one's stay. Highly recommended if you desire a nice time in Vermont!!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
A group of 6 of us on motorcycle ride from CT. stayed in August. What a great house! Perfect location with every amenity possible. We had a blast in the HUGE hottub! More than enough room for a large group. The pictures DO NOT do the house justice. We are looking forward to staying again next year!!
Thank you Robbie for a great time!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This house is good find. It was a cozy house. We spent our New Years at the house. It was able to accomodate our party of 15. It had two bedrooms in the basement, one bedroom on the main floor and three rooms on the second floor. The house is about 3 minute car ride from Mount Snow so it's convenient if you want to take a break from skiing/snowboarding and warm up in the house for a bit. The hot tub was a plus after a long day of being on the slopes. The kitchen was great for cooking.
