Rustic Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and perfectly rustic! It fits perfectly in the backdrop of a Vermont winter. The house is a short walk to restaurants, shopping or whatever is needed for a weekend get-away. The house has plenty of room and a quaint wood burning stove kept the house warm and cozy. If you ski or snowboard it’s a 20 minute drive to Stratton MT or a 5 minute drive to family friendly Bromley MT. My family and I enjoyed our stay in VT and the house was the perfect compliment. We all agreed we would return to rent this house!

Wonderful getaway with a variety of amenities

  • 5 of 5

We came for the long Easter weekend and had a lovely time. The farmhouse is rustic and charming, and very nicely equipped with the comforts of home. It's also just steps away from a multitude of restaurants, cafes, shops, a supermarket, and the best small town new/used bookstore I've ever visited. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Manchester Center is famous for its high-end outlet stores (, so we spent some time shopping for bargains. Our favorite activity was a spectacular hike on the Lye Brook Falls Trail, which is just a mile or two outside of Manchester (

We found the house to be very clean and well maintained. The beds were really comfortable and all of the systems (heating, kitchen, shower) worked perfectly. I highly recommend it and hope to return for another visit.

This was a perfect house for us while attending the Vermont Summer Festival.

A-1 location, walking distance from the heart of the Town, between the horse show grounds and the fabulous quarry for end of day refreshing swim.

Sue was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end.

Spacious, well equipped and comfortable: this house is a real gem.

Hope to stay there again in 2013!

Great location and cozy property!

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying at his rustic retreat in walking distance to town. My kids loved being able to walk to town for meals, bookstore visits and just to do something. Two Cow Lane is very charming and is stocked with all you will need. The layout is very unique, as it is a restored barn, and ideal for a vacation in Vermont. You won't be disappointed!

Perfect spot for Vt Summer Festival Horse Show

  • 5 of 5

You can't ask for a better location. We were walking distance to town and all the outlets and a 10 minute drive to the Horse Show grounds. Also, the quarry swimming hole is ten minutes up the road as well.

The house is clean, well kept and the owners were very easy to deal with. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the area
