TESTIMONIALS: We had a wonderful time this weekend. It felt like a home away from home. The location was great for us as we skied and snow boarded at Ascutney. The general store was great...MMMMM... Connor had a great 12th birthday and we had a great weekend. Thanks again.' -- The B. Family, CT, Jan 2008.

'We had an absolutely wonderful time. The house was so cute and cozy. It was convenient to so many things which we missed the last time we came and stayed at the Ascutney Mountain resort. We got a lot of snow while we were there which made for great ski conditions. We also got in some sight seeing. Woodstock is a great little town... We look forward to making another trip to Vermont in the near future.'--Tara Z. & family, NJ, Jan 08.

'What a great place to stay - so comfy & homey. We had a wonderful time, spending snowy days in the village. Loved seeing the alpacas and eating at the Irish pub with the kids. Thanks for sharing your home .' -- Don & Sue S. & kids, MA, Jan 2008.

Why James Reynolds chose Ascutney

Having come to Vermont since the early 1980's we finally made the committment to own our own slice of the Green Mountain state. We always liked the greater Woodstock area, and once we found this small village we knew it was right for us. We could walk to amenities and still hear the river from our porch. The fact that several movies have been filmed in this and surrounding towns, and that the 'most photographed farm in America' is only 4 miles away, attest to the area's beauty. We love it here!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a quaint Vermont spot! We loved it.

This is what a vacation should be. It's clear the owners have taken great care to renovate their sweet farmhouse. Contained all the amenities needed for a relaxing, carefree stay. Our goal was to teach the kids how to ski - we had 3 excellent days at Ascutney. Loved the children's clinics - even though it was Christmas vacation week, there were no crowds, they received loads of attention, and had a ball on the slopes. An easy 15 minute ride door to door.

We also conquered the sledding hill just across the street (hope the neighbors did not mind!) and thoroughly enjoyed the skating pond directly in our backyard. Left Reading feeling as though our family had stepped out of a Norman Rockwell review!

The owner's assessment was very clear. This IS a farmhouse. Not alot of glitz and glamour - downtown Reading can be missed in the blink of an eye. Just grab your slippers for the cool mornings on the hardwoods and prepare to simply relax and enjoy family dinners and game nights in the HUGE kitchen following the day's adventures!

Owner's Response: We've received many letters just like this, and I always feel the excitement of investigating this small village's many secret finds and hidden gems. Of course the surrounding area, as well, is filled with great destinations and day trips that make this spot a great base-of-operations. And yes, there is a Norman Rockwell Museum nearby, also!

The ideal VT getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home has been a favorite for us and we have returned for a number of years now. Beautiful, rustic decor, a wood stove for fending off the mid-winter chill, and set in a quaint village that has all of the necessities but none of the hubbub. Yet, it is an easy drive in any direction for activities of your choosing. A great getaway spot with helpful owners. A+

Thank you for sharing this lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and we just had a wonderful time. This home is just perfect for our needs and provides a great, cozy atmosphere. The listing accurately reflects the amenities of the home, and it is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this tastefully decorated home to others.

This time around, we enjoyed visiting Grafton Village (cheese company, art gallery, blacksmith shop, woodcarving artist), ice skating at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort, dining in Woodstock, visiting the Reading Country Store, and sitting around the wood stove. There was even more nearby that we had hoped to do but could not fit in during this trip. Maybe next time!

Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us!

Comfy and Clean...

  • 4 of 5

Let me start by saying this is a beautiful, very clean and comfy home. Every room was beautifully decorated and the beds were the most comfortable beds we have EVER slept in!!!

We stayed there at the end of July, so we visited the farmers store at the end of the road every day for the freshest produce. We also walked around the corner to pick berries and bought fresh smoked bacon at the general store. So many things to do in the area, we had never a dull moment!! If you go in the summer be sure to visit Echo Lake (a Vermont State Park in Ludlow) and climb Mt Ascutny... it is amazing!!

Our only problems with the house was that was no internet service available, and the air conditioning was an older window unit that was not installed. We just happened to be there the warmest week of the summer, but once we found some fans we were comfortable!! But the owner was available for our questions!

What a fun, relaxing trip!! We would absolutely consider coming back to this beautiful home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Wood & Mapes familes! We're so happy you had a great time with your children while visitting. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience while our internet was down, Comcast has come out to the house and assures us we are back up and running. The hiking trails on Mt. Ascutney really are spectacular and we are always pleased with Mr. Shaugnessy's butcher shop as he specializes in locally-raised meats and smokes and cut his own. Thanks again for your kind words, James & Michele.

A Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

While visiting some friends in Boston for two weeks we rented this farm house for a few days as a Vermont getaway. It was our groups first visit to Vermont and I would highly recommend it for European visitors.

We enjoyed our stay at the house, which was accurately described. The property was charming, very clean and well maintained and within a few miles of beautiful Woodstock and many other attractions. Our only regret was that we did not visit a little later in the year as we all love to ski.

The owner was helpful and friendly and the rental was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to experience a taste of the Vermont lifestyle.

We had a great trip to Vermont!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun time staying at this rental house, it was the perfect size for our group of 3 couples. While there we visited two breweries and had a great time driving through Woodstock and stopping at all the local farmers markets and small shops. The only thing we could have wished for was cable on the tv since we had a lots of sports fans in our group but we solved that by heading to Bentley's right in Woodstock to watch! The small store right across the street was great to grab a quick breakfast, the apple cider there was delicious. It was a relaxing weekend and the leaves were gorgeous!

Other Activities: hiking, petting zoo, apple orchard, cheese-making, site-seeing, shopping

Ski: The largest single-peak mountain east of the Mississippi is Mt. Ascutney which offers fabulous skiing & a new high-speed detachable quad. ASCUTNEY is five minutes over to the next village, but if you want some real challenging and greatly diverse skiing, you'll have to check out OKEMO (15 minutes), KILLINGTON (20 minutes), SUNNAPEE (1 hour). For something smaller, SUICIDE SIX is a nice nearby family resort (20 minutes).

In the last few years we've re-learned the pleasure of board games with friends and family, leisurely drinks with no place to worry about going to, and reading magazines for no particular reason at all. This home and its location really make one slow down from the frantic life and de-stress. The General Store across the street smokes their own bacon, and there are orchards to spend a lazy fall afternoon in, and maple syrup vendors & cheese-makers abound. Of course adventure is never far either and we recommend evening sleighrides, skiing, horse-back riding, snowmobiling, snowboarding, hiking, swimming and exploring. There's even the high-jump in the river up at 20-foot-hole! Sleep tight.
