VINTAGE GRAFTON HOME PERFECT FOR FAMILY VACATION

Grafton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This 1840's home was built as a single family home, then converted to a bed and breakfast before becoming a single family home once again. After many renovations, cosmetic upgrades, and material changes, the house maintains it's vintage New England charm while providing modern day amenities. With four bedrooms, including one with bunk beds, and four and a half baths, there is plenty of room to vacation with your family and friends. The first floor has two lovely family rooms, a dining room, and a renovated eat-in kitchen. Off the back of the kitchen are both an enclosed and open porch for additional living space. As well, there is a large mud-room off the garage which also can serve as an exercise room. Other amenities include laundry on the first floor and printer/fax/scanner on the network. The yard is spacious and provides additional room for entertaining as well as access to the Saxton River. The house is a short walk to the Village of Grafton with the Grafton Inn and Restaurant, art galleries, general store, tennis courts, Mack's Place Eatery, museums and more.

We are the Case family - Brian and Charlene and our three young boys. When we are not in Vermont, our main residence is in Somers, Connecticut. We enjoy road and mountain biking, skiing, hiking, soccer, and hockey (the boys). Brian is an investment manager while Charlene is an Ob/Gyn.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

After renting in Grafton, Vermont for a couple of winters, we decided to find a home of our own. We have enjoyed the close proximity to Grafton Ponds for cross country skiing and are looking forward to exploring more of the area during the other seasons as well. The town is quiet and well-maintained, the locals friendly, and the pace a bit slower than what we experience at home.

Both of us have extended family in the New England area with whom we enjoy spending vacation time. As well, we have many friends who share our love of the outdoors. We have such great memories of time away with these loved ones, away from the hustle and bustle of our every day lives. The house is a quiet retreat where we play games, have meals, and just reconnect. We really enjoy being just minutes from the cross country skiing at Grafton Ponds where there is also a tubing hill, a new biathalon course, and swimming and mountain biking in the warmer weather.

My wife and I and our small dog spent a week in this property in late August, 2012. Grafton had been recommended as a neat town by one of our friends so we decided to give it a try. Certainly, Grafton exceeded our expectations. We were 'busy' everyday--OK, sometimes that meant a 2 hour breakfast at Mack's Deli visiting with the locals!! It was such fun.

The house is great. While there were only two of us, we seemed to have used every room! Great kitchen, living room and den. Everything was provided---even more than we should have expected.

For those unfamiliar to this area, there are a lot of interesting small towns within 30 minutes in all directions. You can stay as active as you choose. Very relaxing stay.

The setting is terrific--right on a little creek and handy to every nearby town.

House is wonderful! Beautiful New England farmhouse, comfortably furnished. Kitchen is modern and fully equipped, games for the kids, lots of spaces to congregate in small groups. We had a full house and cottage, and there was still plenty of space for everyone. Sun room and screened porch were delightful sitting areas. We were there for our son's wedding, and the lovely setting really felt like vacation. Owners are very accommodating. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone, either for summer in New England or skiing in the winter.

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5
Fourteen of us enjoyed a family reunion at this lovely old home in Grafton. The bedrooms were comfortable and we piled 7 (with room for one more) children into the bunk room. It was nice having separate bathrooms for the room with twin beds and the room with a queen. Although there was no snow, as we had hoped, we entertained ourselves with hikes in the area. We also enjoyed bowling and swimming in Springfield, as well as the bookstore in Chester. We spent much more time indoors than anticipated, playing games etc. We kept quieter activities in the library, more chatty groupings in the living room, and both the kitchen and dining tables were great places for playing games, doing crafts, as well as lots of eating. It was very comfortable for all of us. The whole process of finding, reserving, planning, and then enjoying our stay was well supported by the owners, and the communication was prompt, direct, and easy. The house was cozy yet spacious enough for the 14 of us. Thank you for a great family reunion.

Exactly What We Were Hoping For

  • 5 of 5
Great location in Grafton Village. Sweet, user and definitely kid friendly house. We cooked and ate out on the porch every night. The owner has planned and thought everything quite well. The house is clean, spacious and very comfortable. We were all very impressed and grateful. Thank you!
