Cozy and comfortable!

This was a great rental for us. Four of us stayed for the week and were completely comfortable! Everything we needed as far as cooking utensils, pots, pans, dinnerware, glassware were provided and allowed us to cook all of our meals at home. Plenty of toilet paper and paper towels were also stocked for our use, as well as trash bags, cleaning supplies and fire starter logs.
The property is accurately described in the listing, as well. Since we came to ski/snowboard at Stratton, we enjoyed the quick drive to the mountain, and was impressed by the snow removal prior to our arrival and soon after we got a good bit of snow the first night of our stay (a plow came and cleared the whole area in front of the house as well as the road!) Shaw's supermarket was a short drive to Manchester center, and we also enjoyed the outlet stores in the area there. Although the sidewalks were icy downtown, we were able to park and brave the cold and walk to all the outlets. We ate one meal (lunch) out the whole week, and that was at Christos' Pizza and Pasta in Manchester Center...and it was excellent. If you like authentic Greek-Italian, this is a place you should try.
The ONLY (and very insignificant to us) thing we found that we didn't "like" about the rental was the lack of place to store the food we brought with us (that didn't need to be refrigerated). We got by just fine by using a box on the floor for storage though, no problem! I'd rather have kitchen amenities at hand than a place to put food, so like I said, not a big deal at all, but an FYI for future renters who might like to bring a rubber-maid or something similar for their non perishables.
Nothing beat coming home from the slopes at the end of the day to relax on the couch with our friends while the dogs lay in front of the fire. Cozy to say the least! I'm looking forward to next year already.
And a quick FYI as far as cellular service goes....between our group we had T-mobile (worked ok - roaming on AT&T), Sprint (worked ok), and Verizon (spotty phone service, bad data service). Just thought I would add that info because I know it's something I like to know before I go, and thought others might benefit!
