GORGEOUS, PEACEFUL, YET NEAR LOTS OF FUN

  • 5 of 5
My husband, dog and I were lucky enough to stay here over New Years for 2009. The house, acreage and peaceful setting were perfectly described here, but it was even better than we hoped. It's got beautiful light from windows on all sides; a cozy woodstove to read/nap by; a warm hot tub to thaw you out after a long snowshoe or cross-country outting, and a tv/dvd player if the quiet gets to be too much. We loved the house and our dog did, too- he romped around outside and loved the nearby trails. The owners were extremely responsive- we couldn't figure out how to use the hot tub (just needed to know which switch!) and they responded immediately to our questions. They also provided great meal and activity options- we followed many of their trail suggestions and food recommendations and were well pleased. The kitchen has everything you need- full stove, oven and dishwasher (nice to have when you are on vacation), and there's a Shaws Market and local/ organic food market easily reachable nearby. If you don't feel like cooking, the nearby options are plentiful, tasy and span from cheap eats to a very nice night out. The house is very close to vermont institution Vermont Flatbread Co. in one direction, and the New England Culinary Institute's restaturant and lunch/bistro place in Montepelier (no more than 20 minutes away).

Though we don't have kids and we came in the winter, I'd highly recommend this to couples and families alike, for any season. I have no doubt that the mountain view would be beautiful in fall foliage splendor, and the house is near cross country and downhill skiing for winter, great swimming holes and local fun activities for summer, plus the house would easily accomodate more than just two. Like the other review here, not only would we recommend this place, we can't wait to come back!

A TOASTY HAVEN FOR A WONDERFUL SKI RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful vacation rental. It's hard for the pictures to really do it justice. The home itself is really lovely: beautiful architecture, bright and warm, a nice big kitchen with modern appliances, and lots of space to spread out. Not to mention the jet bath! The location was just what we were after: it's on a private piece of land, away from town, making it feel like a real retreat, but an easy 20-25 minute drive to Sugarbush / Mad River Glen ski hills (plus, bonus, the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream factory!), and just a few minutes from shops and restaurants. We really felt like we got lucky to stay at this spot. The owners are also very courteous and helpful. This would be a really great spot as well for a family with space for kids. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a holiday rental in this area.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming up to VT to ski for a couple of years and stayed at a local hotel. We got tired of listening to other guests come in at all hours of the night, as this does not make for very good skiing the next day, and so we decided to look for something a bit more peaceful and with more room. A friend recommended VRBO as she uses it all the time. After looking and looking and not finding anything reasonably priced, I finally found this house. It is just what we were looking for: reasonably priced, spacious, dog friendly, clean, and close to Sugarbush. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. For me and my family, it was in the perfect location. There are lovely roads for walking the dog and on the way back to the house, there is a grocery store in Waitsfield where we could pick up dinner. It is easy to get to and the owners were very helpful. I'm looking forward to coming back next winter.

PEACEFUL AND QUIET, PERFECT VERMONT!

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome time! Thank you so much for sharing your house with us, we loved the location, it was close enough to all the places we love up there yet far enough off the main roads, peaceful and quiet. Your house was perfect, clean and comfortable and that woodstove kept it so toasty! We went for an adventurous snow shoe up bald mountain, wonderful view of camels hump up there! One of my favorite moments was when the cows came out Sunday morning while we were making blueberry pancakes and bacon we had picked up at the Montpelier Farmers Market. They trotted down the hill towards the house and to their watering hole by the road, cows and calves , while the big bull stood on the hill watching over them! it was Vermont picture perfect! The doggies are also very grateful you allowed them to stay too!

GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
This home was really a lovely escape for my family. The home was well kept and suited our needs perfectly in the accommodations and the layout. There is one bedroom and bathroom on one end of the house and another pair of bedrooms and bathroom on the other end. The first bedroom was for friends of ours and the other side was for us and our child. We were able to be awake early with our child and not wake our friends. There was ample room to spread out, yet the room configuration was close enough to reach everyone quickly. The home was really quiet and was nice to come back to after a day of activities surrounded by people. There is no cell service within the house. It was really great to be unplugged from everything!

Mike and Caroline were extremely easy to work with. Forthcoming with answers and information to all of our questions. Very responsive via email for any of our needs. Overall we experienced no issues with them or the house and would recommend this to friends.

PERFECT SPOT TO RELAX!

  • 4 of 5
Our family of three plus dog had a wonderful time at Mike and Caroline's home. It was very clean, comfortable and warm. The full size kitchen, ample dining area and wood burning stove made it complete! It is a perfect location to get away from it all, but so close to skiing. We especially enjoyed long walks down the country road. I must add that our dog LOVED the neighbors cows! We had a wonderful stay -two times- thanks to the owners graciousness when my husband threw his back out skiing. We hope to return again! Thanks to you both!
