Great Location for Skiers

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here last winter for a ski vacation and loved it. There was plenty of room for sleeping, playing, relaxing and spreading out our ski gear to dry each night by the fire. It has all the amenities of home with a full kitchen, dishwasher and washer and dryer. The bed in the master bedroom is a Queen sized Beautyrest and sooo comfortable.

It's a quick 2 minute walk into town for pizza and wings and there's a great diner just a short drive down the road. There is a nice sized grocery store in town as well. It was only 25 minutes to Stratton with other ski areas nearby. We skied all day and then came home and made snowmen and snowforts by porchlight and the kids fell into bed after dinner.

We've also been in the fall and the kids loved the little creek in the back yard and all of the woods to explore. We found a great hike up the mountain to see the lama farm and work off dinner. A very pretty area to explore.

We've booked several weeks this year and can't wait to get back.

Beautiful Antique Village Home

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place with every modern convenience. The kitchen is gorgeous, the Living Room warm and cozy, too many great things to name. It feels like visiting a friends home in small town Vermont. The kids will love the multi-level yard and rope swing from a huge maple tree. We loved sitting at night by the fire pit under the stars. We love this place, it is our third time here and we will be back for sure! Thanks to the Purdy Family.

Perfect ski house base

  • 5 of 5
The house perfectly met our needs for our visits to Okemo, Mt Snow, and Statton. The mix of bedrooms and futons for the kids matched the folks we had. The kitchen was beautiful and fully equipped. We loved the large living room for hanging out apres ski and watching the Olympics.
Communication with Becky, the owner was easy and quick. Thanks, Becky!
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Vermont Country House

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful vintage farmhouse on a country road made for a perfect multi-generational family getaway. Good size house was very clean with lots of flexibility for sleeping arangements. Walking distance to the Townshend green and short drive to Stratton ski mountain. Loved being able to ski all day and be back "home" eating a family meal by 7:00pm. Can't wait to come back next month.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
The property was well maintained. It felt as we were spending the weekend at a friend's house. Enjoyed a couple of nights playing games (games provided) by the fire and drinking hot cocoa after a long day snowboarding (20 mins away). My friends told me what a beautiful place it was and they were all glad I asked them to come enjoy the vacation with me. Easy to get to. No cellphone signal, but we didn't mind.

A wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5
We have spent 10 days in this house in February 2010. It has everything for a good vacation rental: reliable broadband internet, bright cozy bedrooms, great kitchen with quality cookware, lots of games for kids. But the most important thing is location. It is close enough to Stratton, Bromley, Okemo, Mount Snow and a wonderful cross country place Grafton Ponds. It is also close to great restaurants in Jamaica and Newfane. We loved it there.
