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.
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.
