Wonderful retreat in scenic Vermont
My boyfriend and I rented this fabulous cabin for a week in June. We loved our stay! The house has everything you need for a relaxing, comfortable vacation. It is creatively decorated and features a lot of nice personal touches throughout. Although there were only 2 of us, the house has enough beds to accomodate several people.
Outside, there's a nice deck with a large grill, and several chairs and a porch swing. Further across the yard is a fire which was nice to hang out by and make S'Mores at night. There is also a set of stairs on the edge of the property that descends down to a beautiful running river. You can fly fish for trout in the river, and there is calm area where you can swim, as well. The location (Chester, VT) is about 10 miles from Springfield. It serves as an excellent base for day trips to Manchester, Woodstock, Burlington, etc.
Locally, we enjoyed a nice dinner at a Scottish pub in town, and often bought deli items at Lisias, which has good food at reasonable prices. There are also several nice antique stores in the area, which were great fun to explore. The abundance of scenic drives in the area provided us with several days of spectacular sightseeing - I think we put 900 miles on the car just driving around Vermont.
The cabin would serve as an excellent base for winter activities, too, since there are an abundance of ski resorts and snowmobile trails in central Vermont. And I can imagine how beautiful the area is in the fall when the foliage is at its peak. But no matter what time of year you visit, this cabin is a perfect retreat for you and your family. Clean, comfortable, quiet and cozy with all the ammenities of home. I happily recommend this property to all. Thanks Roy!
