Hidden Gem in Southern Vermont!

Wow! We are just back from a ski weekend at this amazing loft in the no less amazing Woodstock village, and I must say that this was one of the most memorable rental experience in my life (and I have rented plenty of vacation houses, cottages, lofts, etc. ...). The place is super clean and even nicer and bigger than the photos suggest. The loft is super well equipped, with two walk-ins, washer and dryer, full kitchen, glasses, cutlery, etc. and everything is basically brand new. It even has a high end coffee machine, with coffee included, which is nice if you get in late and can't do grocery the first day. The owner is super welcoming, warm and available, but also extremely discrete. There are plenty of amazing restaurants in the 5-minutes away (on foot) Woodstock Village (our favorite by far being the amazing country Italian cuisine offered at Osteria Pane e Salute based on the owners' traveling experiences in Italy), plus numerous country stores and farmers markets nearby where you can make quality grocery shopping (local products such as cheese, bread, charcuteries and wines), or buy quality ready-to-eat full courses meals. In my experience, the only village in the green or white mountains (Vermont and NH) that provides as nice an overall experience as Woodstock might be Stowe, although Stowe is slightly more commercial and now less authentic than Woodstock. The loft is about 25 minutes from majestic Killington ski resort (and just 2 hours from Boston) which we found to be one of the best place to ski all types of terrains in an A1 environment (19 lifts, 7 parks (some of which the length of a full run!)). But the distance from the ski resort is was not an issue for us since most stores where you'll buy your grocery or wine are on this 25 min path. 5 stars for sure and we hope to be back soon!
