                                                              Skip and Esther have a cozy home that was built with love. The location is perfect for Bromley skiing as well as Manchester shopping. The kitchen is well equipped. The mattresses could use a little updating, but other than that no complaints.

                                                              This place is just beautiful and historic in everyway

                                                              We loved everything about our trip. It was absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

                                                              Impressively rustic but efficient home in private setting off main route.

                                                              Six adults and two young children had plenty of space in this lovely restoration. Home is definitely charmingly rustic but w/ all necessities, nice cotton linens, warm wool blankets, quality furnishings etc. Small sledding hill in front yard, challenging hike or ski Appalachian/Long trail to top of Bromley Mtn., short drive to ski Bromley or Stratton, six miles to all you'll need in lovely Manchester Center. Some little chores before departure but we were happy to do for the welcoming and accommodating owners, Ester & Skip.

                                                              Perfect Vermont Christmas

                                                              We stayed here for Christmas 2017 with three adults (mom, dad, grandma) and four kids (age 9, 6, 3, and 1). The place was beautifully decorate with a tree (~16 ft.) and lights. The kids loved the location and playing in the snow. It snowed about 12-inches while we were there, and we went over to Bromley mountain to go skiing a couple days. Bromley is about 2-miles away, and it's a super-fun-chill-friendly resort.

                                                              Thanks so much Ira and Ester!

                                                              Perfect getaway! Close to Manchester, beautiful barn style cabin

                                                              My husband and I and our English cocker spaniel puppy had one of our favorite weekends at this beautiful home! From breakfast in the sunroom each morning, to cozy nights by the fire, this cabin is the perfect getaway! The beds are incredibly comfortable and the property is within walking distance to hikes on the Appalachian Trail. We went canoeing and saw lots of wildlife during the mornings and went shopping in town during the day. Fantastic hosts, extremely well designed Home ( cooking gear for all your needs!) and a truly ideal location just a few minutes from Manchester. We can not wait to come back during ski season! Thank you so much for having us!!

                                                              Our home away from home.

                                                              We have stayed with Esther and Its for the past four years. We have come to think of them as family, the are truly wonderful people. We have stayed at all three of there properties and they each have a special something which comes from their owners. This year they surprised us with a Christmas tree at the barn which made our time there so special. Can't wait to go back. If we win the lotto I would make them an offer to buy this barn and the cottage, because we have fallen in love with this place. It is truly our home away from home. Thanks to two very special people. Geralyn a d Michael
