Great amount of space for our large group!

  • 4 of 5

Kate’s home in Barnard worked out very well for a large group of old, dear friends in town for my wedding. The home is right next door to my in-laws’s, just up the road (or lovely trail) from Silver Lake, and on a most beautiful property so location was absolutely perfect. Our 12 guests all had plenty of space and we enjoyed cooking in the open kitchen which was equipped with everything we needed to make and serve big meals for the gang. An extra refrigerator in the garage also came in handy as did the inner tubes we found in there! Great for river trips and for lounging on the water at the lake.

We enjoyed the fire pit outside and used the grill a couple of times too! The home could definitely use a fresh coat of paint and after a very hot and humid week a couple of the rooms had a strong musty odor which meant some couples stayed in a larger shared room instead of in there own personal space. By the end of the week the mustiness had begun to subside. Hopefully this will be addressed by the owner since it was truly the only thing that was disappointing about the rental. Regardless, Kate’s caretaker/housekeeper, Deb was helpful, kind and communicative and all of my guests left satisfied and deeply happy to have been able to spend so much quality time together in such a beautiful locale. There has even been talk of returning next year if Kate and Deb will have us! ;-)

Unique house for great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for President's Day weekend and it was perfect for two families and our kids. The house has a classic Vermont feel, complete with two wood stoves for great fires, a nice kitchen and large table for family meals. Plus the kids loved the upstairs "bunk room". Also close to skiing at Suicide Six or Pico/Killington. We loved it!

Our stay was quite relaxing! Away from it all surrounded with snow! A winter wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this lodge! There was plenty of wood supply to keep us warm while enjoying the fireplace as we play board games! The boys when skiing while others hang out around the house-sledding and playing! We really enjoyed our time together and the lodge was a quaint place to spend a great family time!! Thanks so much for everything including being so flexible with our check in and check out time!! The owner and caretaker were fabulous and considerate! Highly recommended!

The house was great. It was perfect for us as we were a family of 12 with some little

ones who could all sleep in one room. Thanks for sharing your

house with us. Skiing was only 6 miles away.

Perfect country getaway

  • 5 of 5

My VT getaway was with a few of my friends and the location and house did not let us down. More then enough space for us all to practice yoga in the morning and hang out in the evening. If the mosquito's cooperated, there was even a fire pit and chairs in the back yard. The house was clean, beds comfortable and was ready for our arrival. Check in/out was very easy. Woodstock only a few minutes away was a classically cute New England town! You must schedule a visit to Sugar Glider Kitchen if you come here with a group of girlfriends! We would stay here again.

Wonderful Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

The Balaban family house is a wonderful and magical place that is fully stocked and ready to host. The unique design creates space for folks to connect and the outdoor space is an great extension of the house. Would highly recommend it for anyone (and especially those that have a large number of people to sleep).
