COZY PRIVATE COTTAGE ON SHEEP FARM

West Rupert Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom sleeps 3

Cozy private cottage on our sheep farm in the mountains of West Rupert. No other houses are visible from the cottage. Visitors have called it a retreat and an oasis. Warm weather sit in the Adirondack chairs on the patio overlooking the pristine year round brook. Cold weather fire up the wood-stove. We get lots of compliments on the book selection at the cottage - and several writers and artists have visited. The property provides a respite yet is within easy distance of Manchester and the Mountains and the surrounding area. We maintain 4 notebooks at the cottage filled with brochures about activities in the area ranging from sports, arts, shopping to dining etc. Although we did not lose power during Irene and Sandy the cottage now has its very own generator in case of power outage.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
For our anniversary, my husband and I only had a few "musts" in choosing our long weekend destination- scenic, secluded, a fireplace, and dog friendly. This location hit each one of those needs on the nose!

The owners went out of their way to ensure that guests of the cottage were provided with all the amenities necessary to make the stay enjoyable. Not only was the property clean, it was well stocked with binders of information (on nearby historic sites, restaurants, and grocery stores), books, kitchen goods, and linens. My husband and I did not arrive until late on our first night and were pleasantly surprised to find a voicemail from the owners on the answering machine welcoming us to the cottage and letting us know that they were available if we needed anything. It is gestures like that that make you want to return again and again!

Finally, I cannot express enough how wonderful this location is for dogs and their owners. As city dwellers, it is wonderful to stay in a location that is so welcoming to dogs. My husband and I found great joy in having our morning coffee outside while watching our golden retrievers happily bound through the snow only running back to the cottage for treats and the occasional pat on the head- luckily we have the pictures to remember it all by!

SUCH A TREASURE!

  • 5 of 5
I could not wait to get home and write this review because my husband, 2.5 year old and I had such an amazing weekend at this cottage. It is such a unique and special place - the beautiful wood interior with all the little doors, handles, latches - we felt like we were staying in a troll or fairy's home :) The setting is completely private and peaceful - located on a very quiet dirt road with no other houses in sight (although the owners house is just down the street should you need anything at all). The stream that babbles by the house, the private bridge, the streamside patio, the woodstove, the charcoal grill, deer sightings daily, and so much to do and see in the local area. We stayed 3 nights but could easily have filled a whole week with all we wanted to do. We were lucky that the Peru fair was running while we were there, which was great (although expect a lengthy wait to and from on the shuttle buses) and a true old country fair. We also visited the fabulous Dorset Farmer's Market and Merck Forest and Farmland (another hidden gem) as well as several country stores. The cabin comes with everything you could possibly need for your stay and we enjoyed staying in at night and cooking, although there appears to be a wealth of nice restaurant options in the area. Joanne called to check in and see if we needed anything and was extremely helpful and accessible. We absolutely loved this place and can't wait to go back.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing get away that would welcome our Clumber spaniel as well. This was the place! The cabin is charming and has absolutely everything you need. The patio is the perfect spot to enjoy the brook behind the house and have some wine and local cheese. Or just look at the amazing stars in the dark sky. Joanne and Ray have made every effort to make sure that the cabin is in order and there are several books with local information that just makes life easier. If you are looking for a vacation cabin in a beautiful area, this is the one. You will go back home relaxed and start planning your next trip back. A doe and her fawn wandered down the hill early in the morning and there was a flock of wild turkeys nearby. Our dog loved the freedom! I even bought some yarn from Joanne to make a hat and the yarn comes with a picture of the sheep the wool came fun. Great fun and relaxation all the way around.

CHARMING GETWAY

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what an amazing stay. This cottage has all the necessities of home, but none of the distractions. Everything is so clean and tidy. There was such wide variety of suggestions of places to go. My 4 year old son and I saw beautiful bridges, visited a quarry, picked fresh fruits and veggies at Merck Forest, played in the house-side brook, and soaked up the sun, stars, and nature. That was only the tip of the ice burg! Can not recommend this cozy cottage enough! Thank you Joanne, Ray, Chris, and Tarra! You had a part in making an lovely and memorable vacation. Hope to be back in the near future.

A PERFECT PLACE TO RELAX AND REVITALIZE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this picturesque cottage. The location is magical; the soothing sounds of the stream behind the cottage perfectly complement the tranquil setting. The property is well-stocked with everything you might need during your stay, whether kitchen utensils or a good book to read on the deck or in front of the fireplace. Joanne is terrific. From the time of our initial inquiries and all the way through to our arrival at the cottage, her replies to our questions were always prompt and helpful. There are notebooks in the cottage filled with brochures for nearby attractions, restaurants, and shopping. We had good intentions of visiting many of those places, but the lure of the cottage kept us entranced for much of our stay. The cottage is a perfect place to relax and revitalize. We definitely will visit again.

A LOVELY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for that trip away from it all, this is the place. It is comfortable and quiet with a lovely creek running through the yard providing the perfect soundtrack. There are things to do near by. Dorset and Manchester are close enough to provide all you need. Merck Forest and Farm is a great excursion close to home. But what you will really just want to do is sit and enjoy the calm.
