Castle on a Cloud!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the "Grahall Castle" for a week in the summer for a family reunion; ages 88 to 14. Based on the photos and the renters' reviews our expectations were high. To say the house far exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. The house is a marvel, inside and out! It is obvious that a great deal of thought and love went into the design.There was plenty of room for everyone; bedrooms and bathrooms. Although the house is modern, the gathering rooms still had a warm cozy feel to them with big comfortable furniture; the library was a personal favorite. The views from the decks were spectacular, green mountains as far as the eye could see. The huge stone patio in front of the house was a great place to relax and survey the grounds and ponds. There is even a stone amphitheater in the back of the house! We had a magnificent stay and left with great memories. We will certainly return.

Stunning Mountain-Top Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family group of 14 adults and two little ones had the most relaxing and fun vacation at this architectural marvel. Every aspect of this modern adaptation of a castle is custom and frames the breathtaking mountain views. The huge yet warm rooms provided plenty of space for everyone to gather and also to have privacy. The peace in the midst of 300 acres on top of a mountain was palpable--there is total silence. Our large contingent of 20-something cousins had a ball playing foosball inside, and wiffle ball, frisbee, etc. on the huge flat lawn outside. We also rented a kayak and canoe, delivered to the property, which was fun for everyone. In short, this is the dream country retreat and we would happily return.

Inspiring Architecture, Nature, and Awesome Views!

  • 5 of 5
We saw orange salamanders, toads, and turkeys and heard barred owls. Our dogs swam in the beautiful moats. The privacy of this property made is such a retreat. The thoughtful, artistic architecture moved us completely to vacation mode. The views from upstairs are simply jaw dropping, and the indoor lights at night created a scene from Merlin or a Hobbit movie. The kitchen was wonderfully equipped and a pleasure to cook in. If we could choose anywhere to retire, it would be here. This is a place to get a change of routine, escape, and be inspired by your surroundings!

Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a group of friends for our annual snowboarding trip. The details of this home.. or should I say, castle was immaculate! The owners were very accommodating and immediately took care of an issue my group had during the first night of our stay. The dining room fit all of us at one table, which rarely happens on our trips. The view from the master room open lobby was grand. There was a dual oven which was helpful with getting breakfast and dinner out all at once. We basically spent most of our time in the kitchen, dining room and great room. This is definitely a must-book location. It's fairly close to Okemo Mountain. I am interested to experience this wonderful home in the summer and look forward to a future stay.

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a spacious home, tucked away from it all.

Make sure you drive an AWD during the winter to get up to this home!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
What a great time we had.
This house is just amazing, spacious, beautiful and as private as anyone could hope for. We were a group of 12, always rotating our meals and activities throughout the whole house just to use it all of it.
The outside space is as beautiful as the interior, bedrooms, bathrooms, library, balconies, living rooms and yes, the great fireplaces.
It integrates all the visitors as one family and there is no way to spend a better time than eating, drinking, watching TV and playing board games.
Thumbs up for the Grahall estate!

Fantastic weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this amazing home. There is ample living space for multiple families or groups. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals. And the property and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. We're looking forward to a return visit, for sure.
