Great House for a Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house with some friends for a Ski Weekend. House is real close to Lincoln Peak and even closer (maybe 3 minutes) to Mt Ellen. The house itself is no frills but very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with the basics and even has a dishwasher. Nice table for a large group and comfortable living room for relaxing in after a hard day of skiing. The wood stove cranks and gets the house quite warm. There's also a piano which is great for those late night sing-alongs. Would definitely recommend this place.

Perfect place for our large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The old house is a perfect place to spend a winter vacation in Vermont. The owner's have thought of just about everything to make the renter's stay comfortable. Being located near Sugarbush worked great and allowed us non-skiers to take lunch to the mountain for the skiers. The openness of the living area allowed us all to be "together" when we were all at the house together at days end. The entry/laundry room was a great place for all of the wet boots and coats( and the cold temperatures) before entering the main house. It was also a great place to store any extra coolers, etc. The younger family members enjoyed having their own space in the bunk room. Thanks to the owners for creating this warm, comfortable environment for our family vacation.

Very comfortable and roomy

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a lovely weekend at this farmhouse so we could attend a family wedding. The kitchen is beautiful and modern and very well stocked with utensils and pots and pans, etc. The beds are very comfortable and the house very nicely decorated and very clean. It's great for a group, because you can hang around the dining room table and another group can hang in the living room. There are two full bathrooms. There's a piano and a wood stove. Though it was a cold and rainy weekend, we were warm and cozy. The owner is very responsive. Everyone loved it!

Great comfy house for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in the Red Farmhouse. The location was perfect for our team during GMSR. There were plenty of beds for all and space for the bikes. The back yard was so peaceful and a great spot for morning coffee or afternoon beer. The dining room was the perfect size for our group and with the kitchen right there you never missed out on the fun bc you were cooking.

The house is great and we really enjoyed it over our weekend there. Thanks so much for sharing with us. We definitely recommend the house!

Had a great visit to the valley. Location was super convenient. House was clean and had everything we needed. No shortage of towels or pillows. Even had a few fans for the hot summer months, although we did bring some along. Owners instructions were detailed and clear. Thanks for a great stay. We'll be back next year.
