About Alice Woods

We are both scientists, have traveled extensively and lived abroad. We love exploration and adventure but always enjoy coming back to our home base for sharing, peace and quiet, and familiar comfort. We especially enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, snow sports, bird watching, canoeing, and star gazing. All these interests attracted us to this area on the NY/VT line.

Alice Woods purchased this house in 2008

Why Alice Woods chose Granville

This area has a great variety of activities, all within a short drive. Great for a change of pace to meet any mood!

What makes this house unique

Spacious and comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms, and wonderful great room make this an ideal place to relax with family and friends. There is a fantastic view to enjoy, both rural and mountain landscapes. Wonderful ravine with cascading stream, and a pond to attract wildlife. All this can be enjoyed from the comfort of the deck, the all-weather porch, or a short stroll outside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to thank you again for sharing your Granville home with us. It's such a comfortable place to relax, away from the daily list of things back home. It has really brought out the best in everyone, from the daily 'family game night' to making cookies together to just everyone hanging around downstairs. We've begun to notice when we come to visit that our kids really appreciate the same things that we do. Now we know that some of the teenage years were just a crazy abberation and our values have set in. Quite an unexpected bonus for a simple family vacation.

Fall Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of this home do not show the beautiful craftmanship and attention to detail that has went itno it. I have reted many homes for family getaways and this was hands down the most beautiful in my opinion. It is very clean and organized with many things labeled. The caretaker was wonderful and even suggested a route which was more scenic with less traffic. The view is spectacular, one I wouldn't hesitate to call a "million dollar view." The house well set up for a large family or three couples. The fireplace made things cozy and inviting and also warmed the place up quite a bit. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to just get away for a quiet and relaxing get away.

Fantastic place to create new memories

  • 5 of 5
My family and I travelled from CT and stayed here for 5 nights. What an incredible experience. The house is absolutely beautiful, the grounds are serene, and the view off the porch of the Green Mountains is breathtaking. The place literally has everything you could ask for and more. We went on several side trips locally to pick berries, go fishing, and eat out - everything is easy to access, yet the property is set back on a hill in its own little paradise. Alice is a pleasure to rent from, and was extremely responsive when we asked questions or exchanged emails prior to our trip. I highly recommend staying here...we will definitely return.

whatta getaway

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Alice for a beautiful house in a beautiful location. Everything about your home spreaks quality and comfort. From the granite top kitchen counters, and appliances to the ultra comfortable mattresses. Most of all we enjoyed our walks on your land. We saw turkeys, fox, vultures, an eagle and of course so many deer. Let's not forget the star lit nights from your porch. We got an added bonus one night and were treated to a few shooting stars.
For those who enjoy nature and still be about 30min from Vermont or Lake george. This is the place to be. Beats a motel or hotel everytime.

A Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with our opportunity to spend time at this beautiful house before dropping our son off at camp. The house is gorgeous and is immaculate, and the property is simply wonderful -- the pictures don't even do justice to the property! We were looking for a relaxing weekend, and it couldn't have been better.

We enjoyed reading and relaxing in the great room, watching a movie upstairs, sitting on the deck overlooking the pond and taking relaxing and peaceful walks on the property. I have already started to think about whether we will be able to plan another trip in the future.

Being in the house really felt like being in a home, and we managed to find the time there restorative. In fact, we probably spent more time in the house than we originally intended since it was so comfortable.

I hope that we will be able to come back and visit again. Thank you so much for sharing your home and giving us a wonderful opportunity to unwind.

Beautiful vacation house

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful long weekend at this house, and enjoyed cross-country skiing and hiking in the Green Mountains. The house was clean, comfortable and well-furnished, and equipped with everything we could wish for. We enjoyed sitting in the great open living room, filled with light and affording lovely views. I appreciated not having to bring linens and towels. The owner replied to emails quickly and offered helpful advice. I would definitely recommend this property to others, and would happily stay there again.
