The Mettawee house was originally purchased by the owners as a vacation home. The owners loved the Danby location, and the local residents were incredibly friendly. The indoor pool was a great feature, that isn't found in many homes - particularly in Vermont! The owners like the property so much that they decided to share it with others so that they could experience the gorgeous setting, incredible views, and unique Vermont experience.

Welcome to Vermont! In the Green Mountains State, you'll find famous fall foliage, renowned maple syrup and the most snow on the east coast. But there is so much more too: enjoy local food at restaurants and farmers’ markets, savor the revered beer culture, meet world-class artisans, explore endless recreational opportunities, rejuvenate at the spa, learn at noteworthy historic sites and above all, please stay awhile… Vermont’s attributes will continue to reveal themselves to you in honest and inspiring ways.

Vermonters are known for their independent-thinking, friendliness, sportiness, and resourcefulness. The state’s residents love the land and are committed to preserving, as well as sharing it. Vermont’s agricultural traditions have created open working landscapes amid a backdrop of mountains, many of which make up the nation’s first through-hiking trail, the Long Trail.

While it’s easy to spend days simply taking in the scenery, it’s even more rewarding to become a part of it. It’s easy to explore backs roads and well-maintained trails by bicycle. Go for a run or walk along busy downtown paths or quiet villages with covered bridges. Drop into a halfpipe on your skis or snowboard and share the trail with local Olympians. Cast a line in a lake or stream, or relax beachside at a pristine state park. Whatever the day brings, the night is sure to deliver a solid night’s rest - whether you choose to camp under the stars, cozy up under a quilt at an inn, or appreciate the thread-count at a luxurious resort.

In Vermont, one thing is beautifully certain: The seasons will change. And with that change, so does the landscape, the recreation, and the way of life. With every season comes new opportunities to explore the world around you. Welcome to a state that is truly never out of season.

We had a TOP NOTCH visit at this home for my sister's 50th Birthday! Large/Clean/Nicely Decorated. The beds comfortable, the bedding clean. My son has never slept so much (I'm sure the pool had a lot to do with that!). The indoor pool, WOW! Even larger than ever expected. The kids had a great sleigh riding hill as well with plenty of sleds in the garage. The kitchen MORE than well-quipped! Beautiful views from the kitchen and we would all love to come back in the Summer and sit outside. If you are looking to spend quality time with your people, this is the place!!! Thank you for above and beyond our expectations!

Foliage Trip

We stayed at this lovely house last weekend for the foliage. We were a group of friends (12 young adults 25-35) getting together from different states (NY, CT, MA …) and we had an amazing get-away.
In one word we loved the house. It’s beautiful, relaxing and clean. The house has all the amenities you need. It has a fully equipped kitchen, and we used the grill outside to BBQ. We enjoyed the indoor swimming pool at night and the beautiful deck outside with its great view in the morning to have our breakfast :)
We did 30 miles biking and enjoyed the beautiful foliage there. I have to add we saw the most beautiful sky in my life there, it was amazing.
We are planning to go back again for the ski season…. Can’t wait !!

PS: Organizing the trip with Charles was so easy and a smooth process.

Owner's Response: The fall foliage is spectacular at our location, as it is surrounded by a beautiful stretch of the Green Mountain National Forest, and Dorset Mountain. The night time sky is the clearest and the most brilliant display of stars that you may ever see.

Owner's Response: We frequently hear from our guests that their kids loved the pool. The pool is located inside an addition to the house, and is great during bad weather days or when you just want to have a day off from other activities. It ranges from four feet deep at the shallow end, to eight feet deep at the other end. There is plenty of seating inside the pool room to keep your eyes on the kids, and the room is surrounded by large windows with excellent views of the fields around the house and Dorset Mountain. In the winter, you can watch the snow fall while you are swimming. In the summer, you can open the sliding glass doors to the decks and patios and gardens that surround the pool room. It's a great place to relax and unwind, whether you are swimming or just watching!

Paradise in Vermont

We stayed at this Danby, Vermont property for a long weekend. Wish it could have been longer,but we were only there for a wedding. We will be back. It was such a comfortable, clean, relaxing home. All the amenities you need. If you bring children (or grown men yearning to watch football), be aware there is no television reception. It didn't bother us! We were overjoyed swimming in the indoor pool, lounging aroung the spacious pool area and playing board games. Definately visit Manchester for shopping and dining. Working out arrangements with Charles for our stay was a breeze. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

I stayed in this lovely home with my 4 best girlfriends for a fabulous get-away. We had such a wonderful time enjoying all that this house has to offer!

Everything is in great shape - new kitchen fully equipped for cooking (which we did often!), lovely bedrooms each with their own personality (the master suite is to die-for with a private bathroom), inviting family and living rooms with a toasty fireplace and bookshelves lined with reading and games for all! And the extreme bonuses of the indoor pool and downstairs ping-pong!

The scenery is breathtaking and provided a perfect backdrop for our weekend retreat.

I can't wait to come back!

What a beautiful place....scenery. accomodations, comfort and ease of access were all just perfect. The pool was an added bonus -- such an unusual treat, great for the kids after a day outside. Now that I've seen one season, I can't wait to plan a visit in the other three. The beauty and charm are incomparable. I don't know where I would be able to find another such place.
