The cottage is really nice, bright and definitely warm in the winter. The kitchen is well equipped for a cottage (microwave, decent selection of utensils, etc.). Bring bottled water and you will be set. There are a few staples in the cabinets, but I brought my own oils, spices, etc. The bed in the master bedroom is great!
I had a great week. Went alone, with my dog, and got a lot of writing done. I am not a nervous person about being alone in the country, but for those who are, this might be a good spot, because there are other houses quite close, but far enough away that you have great privacy. The property is quite large and the view to the north is lovely.
It's an excellent spot for x-country skiing, because there are two centres with groomed trails nearby. It is (sort of) midway between two small towns, one of which was the location for the Hitchcock film The Trouble with Harry. One of the key locations is actually just down the road.
We stayed here during Christmas and had a great time. The cottage is nice and the interior is eclectic which lots of work from local artists hanging on the wall. This made it feel very cozy much more so than a house styled through. The views out the panoramic windows were great and the location quiet. The surroundings are beautiful countryside and the XC skiing facility at the Craftsbury Outdoor center are top notch. (They managed to get decent trails during difficult weather conditions). Highly recommended!
Property was perfect for a small getaway. Clean and cozy and the owner was very quick to answer any questions. This part of Vermont is beautiful.
We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Cottage. It was peaceful and quiet, with a great outdoor space for our toddler to run around. WiFi signal was intermittent/slow - but all the more reason to 'unplug'and enjoy the beauty that is Northern Vermont. Having a washer/dryer and a full kitchen was a huge plus. The owner was accommodating with our flexible arrival time. Would definitely recommend!
We stayed at the cottage for a weekend with our two dogs. The cottage was clean, cozy, quiet, perfect for a getaway. The dogs enjoyed the large yard, and being farm people, we enjoyed the surrounding location in farm country. We were property hunting and just getting out of town for a bit. We found our way through the back roads to Parker Pie easily. John was easy to communicate with via email, and we had no issues with directions to or inside the cottage. We hope to visit again soon!
My husband and I stayed at Sunset Cottage for a glorious fall weekend. We brought our dog, who definitely loved playing in the huge, well groomed yard. We enjoyed eating an apple from the apple trees alongside the driveway. The cottage is clean and sunny, with lots of windows and a good basic kitchen and bathroom. The location is on a dirt road not far from a dairy farm. You get beautiful views of the mountains while driving to the cottage. It is a short drive to a small village; the Craftsbury General Store has excellent sandwiches and pizza, and a great selection of local beers. There is lovely scenery all around the area, but it is at least 20-30 minutes to a get to a small town (as opposed to a village with just a gas station, general store and post office), so it's best for those who really want to get away from it all. We appreciated that the owners are truly dog-friendly.
