Wells Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3BR/3BA/Sleeps 2 to 10

The perfect country retreat. Vermont's famous fresh air from the 20 acres of tranquil woodlands and trails surrounding this spacious, comfortable, cheery country house. Picture windows and a wrap-around deck look over Hidden Valley's miles of hills, fields and streams into the next state. With 3600 square feet of living space, the house offers several gathering areas, including two separate living rooms, a game table area, a dining area and a sociable kitchen. Marvelous for retreats, reunions, family gatherings, writers and artists. Great for three couples, one per floor. Furnished down to the cookbooks. There are games galore, hundreds of well-chosen books and over 200 movies on video. Artisan stonemason Simon Shultz created magnificent two-story stone columns that support the outside deck and, at the heart of the chalet, a spectacular three-story stone core with two fireplaces. A charming spiral staircase connects all three floors.

Sleeping accommodations: The total number of beds in the chalet are: two twin beds, two queen beds, two queen sofa beds. The two twin beds are in the ground floor bedroom, the main floor bedroom has one queen bed, the third floor bedroom has a queen bed. The chalet has two livings rooms, one on the ground floor and one on the main floor. The ground floor living room has a queen sofa bed that can sleep two persons. The main floor living room also has a queen sofa bed that can sleep two people.

All within an hour: learn Fly Fishing at the Orvis Fly Fishing School or visit the American Museum of Fly Fishing in historic Manchester village: the Norman Rockwell Exhibition, where Norman Rockwell's models are your tour guides, at the Arlington Gallery in Arlington, hometown of Norman Rockwell 1939-53, on historic Route 7A; the world- famous Simon Pearce Glass-Blowing workshop and restaurant in Quechee, VT and the noted Billings Farm Museum in Woodstock, VT.

Beautiful secluded chalet in the deep forests of Vermont. Beautiful setting. Plenty of room with everything you would need for a pleasant stay. There were just four of us staying there so there was plenty of room and privacy with bedrooms and bathrooms on each floor. We did not do a lot of cooking but the kitchen was well equipped for what we did and more. The view from the deck and front windows was awesome.

The owner was very helpful and provided us with some great suggestions for sightseeing.

The was a great selection of videos, books and games.

If you have any trouble with stairs I would not recommend this house. It has three levels accessible by a spiral staircase. Not a bad thing but just need to be aware of the stairs.
Owner's Response: What a beautifully written review. It makes us so happy when our guests really enjoy the chalet (and, as you say, it's beautiful view).

Wedding accommodations away from home

  • Submitted: Jul 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The place was very clean, tidy, and worked out very well for our purposes. Very spacious and each bedroom very private. Great having three separate bathrooms on each level, and laundry if we needed it (which we did). Kitchen was spacious enough for three people to be working on a home cooked meal all at the same time. Good assortment of kitchen utensils and pans. Adequate refrigerator space and two ovens. We arrived on a a very hot summer day but the fans that were avaialbe in each room and windows that were able to be opened as well as doors onto the deck made it possible to get air moving throughout the space. Enjoyed our stay very much!

A perfect weekend

We enjoyed this chalet so much, the place is cozy and very beautiful. The sunsets are beautiful and the place is bathed in an apparent serenity. We were 4 adults and 4 kids and everybodys had a wonderful weekend. I must say that it was a pleasure to do business with the Rye chalet, good communication with the owner. Everything was so easy and positive.

Thanks

Nous avons passé une super fin de semaine au chalet Rye. Il est superbe, la vue est incroyable. Nous avons fait de belles randonnées en famille. Bref, je le recommande vraiment. Vous ne le regretterez pas, c'est franchement un des chalets les plus confortable que j'ai loué. Il y avait aisément de la place pour coucher 8 personnes et l'endroit est également très propre. Les proprios sont très gentils et faire affaire avec eux a été un plaisir. Nous y retournerons certainement.
Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup. We look forward to your return.
