About Francine or Eric
We are Eric and Francine Chittenden, and we each grew up in Vermont. Eric is an ancestor of Vermont's 1st Governor, Thomas Chittenden. Francine was born in Quebec, and thus her 1st language is French. We both grew up on dairy farms. We got married in 1973, and founded the Cold Hollow Cider Mill in 1974, which rapidly evolved into one of Vermont's premier 'must-see' attractions. In 1980 we created Governor Tom's restaurant, an immensely popular eatery for 8 years. We sold the cider mill in 2000 to Paul & Gail Brown so that we could fulfill our growing 'bucket lists.' The mill continues to be very successful. Currently Eric holds a license to sail as Captain on the largest ships in the world, and works primarily on the Hawaiian run as a deck officer. Francine is Director of Human Resources for the Vermont Foodbank.
Francine or Eric purchased this Estate in 2000

Nice property, good accommodations, friendly owners
We were only there for a weekend but had no complaints. The owners were helpful but unobtrusive, and the house was really nice.
Beautiful property/Will be back
The owner was wonderful, we were there to celebrate my sisters bachelorette party so you can imagine we weren’t the quietest group and she was accommodating and provided us with everything we could possibly need. The housing had all the amenities you could need, was clean, and the property was absolutely gorgeous. Huge yard, lakefront access, and views for days! Will be returning with my kiddos! Perfect for a family or personal getaway! Great price also.
Spectacular Summer Fun and Relaxation
I wanted a very special place for celebrating my 70th (and a half) birthday. And I wasn't disappointed. I choose this location because my three granddaughters are competitive swimmers and total water babies. They spent at least a half day each day in the water swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and paddling. When not in the water, the pool table was a hit. I had read in one of the reviews that a family never left the estate. That was almost true for us - only half day out at two bookstores. Otherwise everything we needed was right there. The hot tub was very refreshing after swimming in the lake and being outside afforded great views of the mountains. Eric had given us a wonderfully informative tour when we arrived and fully welcomed us. Francine brought down her waffle maker and griddle when I asked for one and offered us herbs from her organic garden. The property is well groomed - the walking trail delightful - we saw herons and deer. The beds were comfortable and plenty of bathrooms and towels! Though the weather cooperated for us, there are outdoor roofed areas if it does rain. We definitely recommend this property and will return again.
What an amazing property! Eric and Francine were super sweet, and made sure we had everything we needed. All I know is next time I'm staying for a full week...the weekend was not enough time to make use if all the amenities.
The house was very nice.
We had a great time. Tons of amenities, and a beautiful location. If you're staying near Stowe and want to be on the water, this is the best place to be!
Awesome winter getaway and snowboard house and planning on coming this summer!!
The owners Francine and Eric are great and very accommodating! The dining table is perfect for our group of ten board/card game table. Hot tub is maintained and was cleaned just for us. Everything was clean and plenty of toiletries if you forgot them. Definitely a top notch rental!!
