I charge an extra PET FEE of $10 per pet per night, however this site does not allow me to post it that way so when making plans please contact me and let me know and I can make the changes on your reservation. if you only have one pet and are staying 3 nights, the fee would be $30. I am willing to reduce the trash removal/cleaning rate for just two people staying, the fee would be $50 instead of the $100 standard fee, assuming only one bed is used and the towels that are used are kept to a minimum. if extra cleaning is necessary you will be charged accordingly.
I do my best to keep the rates down to encourage more rentals, however I believe my rates are fair, I am willing to reduce the per person charge when it involves younger children but I am unable to allow children to stay for free.
Check in time is anytime after 3 p.m. on the day of your arrival.
Check out time is noon on the day of your departure
purchased and updated the home with the intention of moving to VT, however I am unable to sell my home in MA so unfortunately I am renting out VT in the meantime.
dorrie maynard purchased this chalet in 2008
this property has tons of character and charm, there is not another house in sight, no street lights, no noise! I have people that study the stars stay here because it is so black at night there is a telescope at the house for those that want to take an up close peak at the activity in the sky.
great place to escape the insanity of the city and get lost in the positive energy of being in the woods!!!
My family and I have stayed at this home several times. It's a great location and the house is just wonderful. it is very clean and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable and the lay out is terrific with a great outdoor deck for BBQ and dining outdoors. The owner keeps this property in superb condition and has treated us very well. We will be back again !
I have visited this special place quite often. It is the perfect quiet getaway. A charming chalet with all of the comforts of home, close to ski areas including some great cross-country skiing, not far from quaint villages with shopping and good restaurants, also some great antiquing!
The house is clean and well equipped, the owner is kind and considerate, and always adds a special touch.
I have to add that I was totally content to be stranded there by myself in a major snowstorm - it was one of my favorite vacations!
I am looking forward to visiting during the spring, summer and fall seasons as well!
The four of us found this rental to be a perfect place to stay and explore the area. There are many wonderful restaurants and shops near by and the chalet itself is in a private location. We found it very charming and loved the upstairs bedrooms which were decorated nicely and the beds were very comfortable. We spent most of our time when we were not out and about in front of the lovely fireplace and the battery operated candles on the mantel and tables was a nice cozy touch. The owner had left us cheese, crackers and other things to nibble on when we arrived which we thought was very nice. We had a wonderful weekend and would love to do it again.
the home is charming, comfortable , clean and cozy.
I love it and recommend it!
The two separate vacations I spent with my girlfriend at this Brookside Chalet, I had a wonderful time. The kitchen was adequate, the linens were clean and plentiful, the entire place was kept in good order with a generous amount of firewood for the two well kept fireplaces. The owner and caretaker were friendly and helpful with our needs and had good recommendations for shops and attractions on and off the beaten path.
Will return again this Summer. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice, clean, quiet getaway.
We rented for the month of February, 2011. What a great place with excellent snowshoeing directly out the back door. The previous review just leaves me scratching my head (why wait 9 months to write the review?):
- Place is very cute, very homey
- Kitchen was very well stocked
- House was extremely clean...everything worked (appliances, internet, satellite TV, etc.).
- Comfortable furniture, very nice beds
- Owner was extremely accommodating and nice, put in wireless internet primarily at my request (I needed to be connected to work while up for Feb vacation week and the weekends)
- Very fairly priced and we paid for utilities, etc. as agreed to upfront (I know some places include utilities in the rent but this was clear that if we were renting for the month, we'd be responsible for utilities)
- Extremely convenient to Weston, Ludlow, Londonderry and Chester and the ski areas.
Family and friends who visited while we were up there also really liked the chalet. A great place to relax. We enjoyed ourselves and are looking into coming back next winter.
I don't get the previous review at all.
