Guestbook comments from the owner

This note was left in our kitchen after a party of 11 rented our house for a week in February.



Dear Lisa and Mike,

Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful home. It is stunningly gorgeous but more importantly it is so warm and welcoming. It is clear that these walls have been full of love and life for many years! We had an amazing time! Be well.

So much beauty and fun.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week-long family reunion at this beautiful farmhouse. My children and grandchildren gathered from all around the country in July to enjoy the beauty and activities that this corner of Vermont has to offer. Lisa and Mike gave us terrific suggestions for hiking, cycling, mountain biking (even lent us their bikes), canoeing and places to get great food. We had a wonderful, full week. It helped that the weather was perfect. We spent the evenings cooking together in the well-stocked kitchen and eating outside on the beautiful porch overlooking Lisa's gorgeous gardens and Mt. Mansfield. The house had plenty of room for the 9 adults and two toddlers that my family is right now. A great week!

Owner's Response: Thanks Maria! It was great to see how much you all enjoyed the house, property and surroundings! You and your family seemed to balance out relaxation time and activity really well. Hope you can come back another time...maybe make our home your annual family-reunion spot!

Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had never skied Smuggler's Notch and wanted a long winter weekend with our two children in College. Two of their friends joined us so we had 6 in the house. We fit with room to spare. Big reason we chose this VRBO spot is that they let us bring our dog. Skiing was good but just not a good winter for anywhere in the Northeast. Mountain was very close and easy to get to. The old farmhouse is loaded with character and the agricultural vistas against MT Mansfield are spectacular. Immediate trail access was perfect for walking the dog. Everything we needed was in the home. We would certainly consider a return trip, both for skiing or for mountain biking. Although we did not meet Lisa and Mike they had a friend check in our first evening and they were readily available via phone if needed. Thanks for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: So glad you and your party had a good time at our house despite our lack of snow! Sorry Mike and I did not get to meet you. I'm glad we may have a chance to do so next year! Think snow!! (You are welcome to come try our mountain biking trails during the warmer months too!)

What a wonderful place for our family get-together!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven adults rented Lisa and Mike's place for four days in August so we could all be together for a significant family birthday. When we arrived, Lisa and Mike helped us settle in, and we felt immediately at home. The house was perfect for us, with with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and excellent places to gather for socializing and meals. The kitchen had everything we needed. The house is in Pleasant Valley, one of the most peaceful and beautiful valleys in the state of Vermont, and the deck has an absolutely stunning view of Mt. Mansfield (even more lovely than the photo on the website, as a prior reviewer states). The other plus was being able to engage Lisa to lead us in a combo Yoga/Pilates session one morning - what a treat! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to have your family stay at our home! Thanks so much for inviting me to lead you through a yoga/pilates class in the yoga studio. It was an honor to have such enthusiasm and gratitude in both our home and class. Mike and I hope to see you all again in the future! Namaste!

Awesome Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice to this lovely home. The rooms are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked. (love that coffee maker). The gardens and grounds are so beautiful and well-maintained. Wish I was back in that porch hammock. Thanks Lisa and Mike.

Ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Mike and Lisa's for part of our spring break ski trip in March. We were 2 families with four young kids and there was more than enough room for everyone. The kids burned off whatever energy was left after skiing by playing in the yoga room while the adults made dinner. The kitchen had everything we needed and the layout of the house gave everyone somewhere to relax for a bit if they wanted. It was an easy 10 minute drive to Smuggler's and everyone agreed it beat staying at the resort. Soaking up a bit of warm afternoon sun outside on the porch after this cold winter was a welcome bonus. We've rented a lot of houses and cottages in the eastern US and Canada over the years and this is one worth coming back to, it was exactly what we were looking for.

Happy New Year!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the week with our family of 15 up at Lisa & Mike's and had a great time! The house and location were perfect for our group. We spent most days skiing at Smuggs, along with hiking, sledding and brewery/winery tour. Mike was a great resource for all fun things to do in Vermont! Hope to go back soon and get some mountain biking in.
