WHAT A LOVELY HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The perfect layout. Peaceful, spacious, warm. Well-stocked, easy kitchen. A dining area that gets morning sun with a great view. Comfortable living room. Spacious upstairs with comfortable beds. The grounds are lovely. This is one of those reviews I consider not writing because I want to save it for myself!

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect cottage if you are looking to get away from it all and connect with the ones around you. The quiet nights help you relax as the fire warms you up. The owner was very helpful with the whole process and everything was taken care of. I will definitely be back next year.

MY KIND OF VERMONT

  • 5 of 5
We were absolutely content staying at Donna's homey and very spacious cottage... mmm the quiet, the scents of goldenrod, the green hills, the gorgeous ripe peaches just outside the door. The kitchen was perfect and we enjoyed cooking with fresh Vermont farm produce :) The view from the porch and virtually every room is beautiful. Very close and convenient to Bellows Falls and probably lots of other lovely places, but our mission was to drink in the quiet and peace and we didn't roam far. We will be back!

RELAXING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful retreat away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life. Everything you could want for in the cottage itself. My children and dog both loved it and were sad to leave. We hope to return in the future.

WONDERFUL WEEKEND TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to Rockingham was better than we could have ever imagined. The cottage was far enough down a dirt road to feel secluded, but definitely still close enough to do day trips without having to spend hours in the car. The place was clean and well stocked with games, maps, books, and snowshoes. Although we were warned multiple times about not having internet connection or TV, there was absolutely no need for it anyway! We made dinner in the kitchen and ate by the large window overlooking the field, while the gas fireplace kept the place warm.

In terms of things to do, we drove to Grafton one day and snow shoed at Grafton Ponds, then stopped in at the Grafton wine and cheese shop and sampled local cheeses and jams. The main street in Grafton is small, but nice for a quick stroll or dinner at the Inn. On the way back to the cottage, we drove through Saxon's River (another little town with a cute main street and Inn) and Bellow's Falls (more pubs and restaurants). Another day we drove through Chester to Londonderry for xc skiing at Viking, and the conditions were perfect. If you are in the mood for a delicious cookie and hot chocolate / chai / coffee etc - try the Moon Dog Cafe in Chester. To finish the day, we got gourmet soup at Smokin' Bowls, which is only minutes from the cottage on the main road.

Although we were there for the weekend of the big blizzard, Donna was frequently in touch making sure we made it safely and that the driveway got plowed (it did, by 8 am!!) This property was well worth every dollar, and we plan to return again. We have told many other family members about our getaway and feel confident they will all appreciate it as much as we did!!

SIMPLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Words can’t describe just how wonderful our weekend in Vermont was. This lovely cottage was the perfect setting for a rural getaway. Majestically perched upon a hill, this beautiful home was just what my boyfriend and I were looking for. The open setting (hardly any doors!), bay window and loft are all very charming features. We sat around the fire writing, reading and chatting. The lack of tv, internet and phone were a welcome change from the typical hustle and bustle of our lives. However, don’t let the lack of those modern amenities sway you. The kitchen was unbelievably well stocked with spices, appliances, and staple goods. The two bathrooms allowed us to get ready simultaneously and to get out of the house earlier to enjoy the many “attractions.” We went for a hike and a cheese tasting in Grafton, breakfast in Chester and in Bellows Falls, hot cocoa in Walpol, NH (Burdicks has a very decadent hot cocoa!) and get amazing soup at Smokin’ Bowls – a great little shack with an even better name and menu! There was enough to do locally (well, within 10 or so miles) if you are so inclined, but this beautiful home also entices you to stay in, crack open a good book and slow your life down for a little bit. Even places like the Harpoon brewery which was roughly 25 miles away was a great scenic drive up route 5. With any luck we will be returning to this charming, rustic cottage.
