Our family was looking for a place to stay in Vermont for a week in August. All the places we found gave us a quote that was at least $500 more than what Dan provided us with. We thought it was too good to be true, especially considering the size of the house. It has so many rooms that we all had our own private space for a week. Upon our arrival, we were all pleasantly surprised by the condition of the house. It was very clean, with all the comforts of home. We were so impressed by the kitchen, which was stocked with everything we could possibly need in order to cook a meal. Since we don't eat out and prefer to cook our own food, this was a huge plus. I was going to bring a blender with me, yet decided against it. Amazingly, there was a decent blender in the house which worked great so I made smoothies for afternoon snacks. We also took advantage of the Netflix service available to us. It had any kind of movie you could think of, and it was a really nice way to spend an evening. The hot tub was phenomenal. We've never had the pleasure of using one, so this was such a treat. The owner left clear instruction that anyone can follow. The house had working internet connection which was a huge convenience because we could look up any directions we wanted online. Dan gave us tons of info regarding activities, grocery stores, nearby attractions, restaurants, etc. Initially, we were skeptical about the hiking trails in the area. Fortunately, Dan assured us that there were tons of hiking trails to choose from. We were no disappointed. There's the Long Trail, Appalachian Trail, side trails, lake trails, waterfall, trails to the top of the mountain. This area is hiker's paradise, yet it's so conveniently located to Killington, which has the stores and restaurants one might need. The house itself is in Stockbridge, which is a charming small town. We loved the location of the house because it was not too far from the main road. We didn't have to drive a mile or two on a narrow dirt road, and that was a blessing because we have a Honda Civic not an SUV. Overall, the house is a dream and Dan is a pleasure to deal with. So helpful and polite, always just a phone call away if needed. I highly recommend this rental!!!! Thank You for a wonderful Vacation!
