About Ira Wickes

My wife and family took down a small barn in Warwick, NY. Trucked the hand-hewn beams to Vermont and built this cottage by hand. This little honeymoon cottage is a labor of love. Enjoy it with love!

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at the Honeymoon Cottage. The owners have gone to great lengths to make sure the house is stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. It was clean and very tastefully decorated with an antique feel. The decorations were absolutely charming and the "hearthy" feel was exactly the type of vibe we were looking for. Nothing could have been more perfect than the two fireplaces and the jacuzzi at the end of a long day of skiing. It meant so much that the owners called the check in the first night we were there. Thank you again, and we will definitely rent from these owners in the future.

Quaint, Rustic Cottage in VT

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a relaxing getaway for a few days and that is exactly what we got. The cottage is perfectly sized for a couple (and a dog, which the owners allowed us to bring). It is tucked away in the woods just a short distance off a local country road so it was very convenient to get to. The town of Manchester is a short 10 minute drive away and has some good local restaurants (try Mrs. Murphy's Donuts for breakfast!) along with a grocery store to pick up food if you wish to cook some meals yourself. Back at the cottage, we enjoyed lounging by the fire each night with some wine and a good book. We also made use of the Jacuzzi tube which helped relax our muscles after an afternoon hike on the Appalachian Trail to the top of Bromley Mountain. Access to the AT is about 100 or so yards out your front door which was really awesome. Overall, the cottage was what you would expect from rustic lodging tucked away in the woods. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days, DEFINITELY consider this place.

Lovely Rustic spot

  • 4 of 5

As advertised! A delightful cottage on a pond. I’m a writer and lived the quiet! The owners checked in on arrival and were great. There are great walking trails right there which my lab and I loved. The bedroom is beautiful, but fair warning, the staircase is half-log spiral to get there. I had to bunk in the living room. If your dog needs to be next to a human, that’s a little daunting. But, lovely cabin just 6 easy miles to Manchester!

Adorable cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Right on a lake with great decks and very quiet. Awesome location near casinos and Mystic Seaport and Aquarium. Very clean and very kind owner and manager. The only thing keeping this property from five stars is that it has lower water pressure. In the shower.

Perfect get away for your spouse and best friend

  • 5 of 5

We had been trying to find a place in Southern Vermont to get away in the winter with the luxury of bringing our best friend with us. The owners where very accommodating of our best friend and extremely easy going for having never met before. We where fortunate enough to have been there when there was a substantial amount of snow on the ground. It snow showered most of the weekend giving the real winter feel. We snow shoed with our dog a good portion of the time in the local area, and took full advantage of both fire places in the house to warm up later. The owners called us on our last day to make sure our stay was perfect and to answer any questions we had. Now nothing is ever absolutely perfect so if I had to make one minor complaint I would say maybe the kitchen utensils may use some replacement/updating. However, that would not effect my stars rating only because this was much better than most rentals I've stayed in. Lastly, being a honeymoon cottage this was a great place for us to get engaged with our best friend by our side. This cottage will always have a special place in our memory and we look forward to visiting again real soon.
