About Kris

I own another wonderful log cabin just 25 miles north of this gorgeous place! We have been renting it for 13 years. We have many requests every year for a larger rental for larger families and this is it! Join us at our Lodge! Where nature is 'everywhere'

Kris purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Kris chose Middlebury

I have ALWAYS LOVED this part of Vermont! Just gorgeous! And when this opportunity came up to actually be able to buy a place here we were thrilled! With the river just across the road and being near the lake and skiing it was a perfect fit for our large extended family! and the beauty of the area plus the Mossalamoo recreational are right there and being so close to Middlebury also made it a perfect fit. It is a fun place! which was what we were looking for, we have 5 kids and 10 grand children and we wanted a vacation home that we could bring each family to, close to the river and skiing in the winter. This was a perfect for us and we thought many other families might enoy it to.

What makes this lodge unique

When I first drove up my mouth dropped open! It was LOVE at first sight and I had not even entered the house yet! For years I had taken this scenic Route and always thought what a beautiful part of Vermont it was. BUT upon entering this home my heart started to race! all the gorgeous details and Fun the builder had poured into this home. The wonderful surprises! like the stone work inside that drops two floors into the livingroom! and the SECRET ROOM! just to start! It was like walking into my dream fun vacation home! yet a it is warm inviting and HAPPY. All the windows and light, And just the FEEL made me say YES! And the AREA so beautiful! We feel blessed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house! Perfect for large groups and for entertaining.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, children, etc.). It was perfect! It's spacious, with large bedrooms and plenty of entertaining space. The house is well-stocked for a large group (plenty of dishes, pots, towels, etc.) and there are a ton of extras (games, videos, a game room, etc.). The owners couldn't have been nicer. They promptly and cheerfully answered every question we had (we had a lot!). They also made sure the driveway was regularly plowed (it snowed quite a bit while we were there). The bedroom situation is a little unusual, but the owner fully describes the bedrooms in the listing. We had such a good time that my parents want to rent the house next year for a family reunion and my son's friends want to rent it for a college reunion! I'm sure we'll be back!

Beautiful winter weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the great pleasure of staying in this beautiful house from January 16 through January 19 with 12 of my friends. We are all between the ages of 27 and 30 and this was the perfect winter weekend getaway!

Let me start by saying that when we drove up to the snow covered house we immediately were in awe with how gorgeous and secluded it was. Stepping inside, we were even more blown away by the vast amount of space! The first floor has a huge game room (with a dance stage...that's right...a stage to dance on), a pool table, a foosball table and a bar. The main floor has a beautiful living room complete with comfortable furniture and so much space for all of us! We even got to enjoy the Patriots beat the Colts in the AFC Championship game :) There is a spacious bedroom on the first floor as well, along with a dining area, a kitchen and a living room.

On the third floor, there are even more bedrooms...and all of a great size. We even had complete access to the washer and dryer on the floor (which came in handy to wash everyone's towels throughout the weekend). There is also a lofted area above the third floor with additional beds and sleeping space. Again...I can't stress enough how much space there was for all of us...we were more than impressed.

One thing that was a bummer was that the "master bedroom" didn't have complete privacy, as the people staying in the lofted area can see down into the bedroom. That said, however, I know that the owners are currently renovating that room area.

The hot tub off the kitchen is FANTASTIC. What is a better way of spending an evening in the snow than in a hot tub...while the snow is falling from the sky? Amazing. Quiet. Lovely.

I can't stress enough how much space this place had for all of was perfect.

We did go skiing one of the days as well. We avoided driving an hour to go to the "popular" ski mountains and drove just 2 miles down the street to Snow Bowl mountain. It was PERFECT! We didn't have to wait in any lines...the conditions were great with mostly powder..and there were so many trails open. The lift tickets and rental prices were at least half the price of some of the major mountains was great. Some of my friends also checked out the local breweries in town...lots of fun things to do!

To top it all off...the owners of the house are so sweet and Kris was a pleasure to work with leading up to our stay. We all agree....can't wait to go back next year!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We never thought of the platform as a dance stage LOL! it will be made for a ground game but I guess yes, you could dance on it :) The open to cathedral ceiling bedroom will be enclosed soon, We have been trying to figure out how to do it without loosing the charm and beauty of the lofted ceiling. We have! And will be doing that soon. The house is our family vacation home and we all love it. It is perfect for family and friends as you found out. The snow Bowl is our favorite! one of the reasons we bought this house! close and great! and hardly ever long lines for the great skiing and snowboarding. Thanks Again

The Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to check out this rental and found it to be the most amazing rental out there. Spacious, you can bring the whole family and not be on top of each other. Wildlife, if you like seeing deer, bear, moose and other wild life this is the place to watch them come down to drink in the river across the street or graze on the lawns. Great place to hold a small wedding, family reunion, weekend get away. There are plenty of places in the house to curl up with a good book, play games with the kids or just get in some relaxation. If you like hiking there are plenty of trails in the National Forest, along the river and in the wooded areas. Skiing is so close to the house as well as great restaurants in the nearby town. I can't wait to go back for another visit and bring my whole family.

Amazing Rental Property

  • 4 of 5

What an amazing rental property! This house is to die for and great for family reunions, small weddings, girls weekend or get a few couples together to enjoy some time away. There are so many rooms, nooks and crannies and places to enjoy a quiet moment or full out family fun. I love leaving the windows open and hearing the brook from across the road and curling up with a good book. There is something for everyone here. Since this is a new rental property be one of the first to experience this rental. The house mixes the old with the new and is so comfortable and homey. Call Kris to ask questions and hear all about this wonderful property.

Gorgeous house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is so much more than the listing can show you. We drove up at night and the house looked amazing lit up from the outside! Inside, we were surprised to find just how large it was and also extremely inviting for it's size! The beds were luxurious and the amenities were just as described. We enjoyed the river across the road for skipping stones with the kids and fishing at the Sugar Hill Reservoir (only 5 minutes down Goshen Road). Driving up scenic RT 125, we discovered the Robert Frost Interpretive Trail (3 minutes away) and Texas Falls (also 5 minutes) - a hiking spot with amazing waterfalls! This home is located perfectly because you are only 5 minutes away from multiple grocery stores, local (delicious!) restaurants and more in downtown Middlebury but you are still situated in the Green Mountain National Forest. We couldn't have been more pleased!! We are planning on returning soon with family - its the perfect rental for a family get together. We also plan to come in the winter for skiing as the miles and miles of cross country and snowshoe trails surround the location as well as the Middlebury Snow Bowl, the perfect size resort for our family! Highly, highly recommend!
