Beautiful place! Patricia and Scott were very nice, and thoughtful. We were given fresh eggs and Orange Juice for breakfast. The cottage was very clean, well stocked, and felt larger inside then expected. We really enjoyed our stay here, thanks!

Cottage was perfect for the four of us (two adults a pre-teen and a teenager). The attic area provided plenty of room for the kids. Cross country skied around the picture perfect farm and had fun sledding on the hills. Skied at Sugarbush. Internet access was great. Enjoyed our break and hope to return in the Summer.

The perfect Vermont experience. This cabin is very cozy, clean, and homey, and is equipped with every amenity you should need. Even though the house is right on top of the cottage, your hosts respect your privacy. I really liked that fact that it is pretty much located right in the middle of Vermont, so I could head out and explore Vermont attractions in any direction. Just an overall enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

The Perfect Spot

I stayed here with two friends while we were celebrating our 20th Friendiversary. It was perfect in every way.

The cottage was charming indeed. Two bedrooms (I guess technically a bedroom and a loft), one bath, living room, kitchen, and porch. The listing says it sleeps four, but I think it arguably sleeps five if you have two people to a bed and one on the couch. I spent two very comfortable nights on that couch.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking accouterments and we were pleasantly surprised to find orange juice, cream, and coffee there for our use. We made dinner there every night.

The property was gorgeous and Pat and Scott were incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts. There were dogs on the property and chickens running around. As an added bonus at the time we were there, there were five-day old puppies to peep at.

We truly had a wonderful time here. The property is gorgeous, the cottage is charming and comfortable, and Pat and Scott are very hospitable.

Wonderfully Peaceful and Hospitable

We were two couples who were vacationing together and stayed at the yellow cottage for three nights. Pat and Scott were welcoming and gracious, and helpful in identifying area possibilities. The bird feeders in front of the main house were fun to watch as we sat on the cottage porch or lawn chairs. Having a window AC was helpful as there was a heat wave during our stay, though we did open up at night. The cottage itself was fully equipped for cooking, though with the hot weather we only did so one night. Great proximity to both Waitsfield and Sugarbush to the south, and the Waterbury area to the north.

Notes:
CrossHaven Cottage is located on a working farm. It is well equipped, but pretty much a 'fend for yourself' accommodation. By that we mean that there is no wait-staff or housekeeping other than when guest depart. We will do everything we can to be hospitable and love getting to know our guests. But, the animals have to eat, the hay has to be cut, and so on. We prefer couples / friends who will appreciate the specialness of CrossHaven Farm and enjoy its beauty and access to many of the wonderful attractions in the Mad River / Stowe / Montpelier area -- and beyond throughout Vermont.
