GREAT VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the property in October and found it to be really comfortable with fantastic views of the Adirondacks. It is in a quiet, rural setting, yet is close to some good restaurants in Vergennes.

Owner's Response: My thanks to K-Row from Austin, TX! (She is very gracious and was a very respectful and considerate tenant, too!)

I believe that she also enjoyed some rather nice bits of nature--both around the house & property, and on some of her hikes and biking tours, too.

I might add that in addition to some good restaurants in Vergennes, that if you add another 10 minutes to one's drive in either direction that there are another 8+ fine dining establishments!

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our stay! The setting is beautiful--views from the deck with mountains and rolling hills in the background are terrific and the bird feeders attract charming visitors. Vergennes has great restaurants and we enjoyed exploring other nearby towns as well. Finally, the owner was very thoughtful and responsive.

All together, we loved staying here and recommend it without reservation.

GREAT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time that we have rented this property for vacation. This is a wonderful house, well appointed, well equipped, peaceful and quiet, and close to great shops and restaurants. The property is beautiful and the vegetable garden is spectacular. The owner is accessible and so pleasant to deal with. Our two dogs loved it as well.

Look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: I would also like to add that our 12,000 square-foot organic vegetable garden is a central part of Vermont Organic Gardens and its bountiful offerings whose produce has been part of many area eateries and homes! For other possible tenants, please ask us about our seasonal options for renting rooms while Andrea and I are here, too.
