A quiet, nice place to be

  • 5 of 5

This house was as advertised, clean and well-maintained, in a very quiet and private setting. Even the fireplace was prepared for lighting! Dave, the owner, was friendly and helpful. Since it is centrally located in the state, we were able to take many side trips.

This would be a great place for 2 couples (even a second fireplace on the lower level) or a couple with children, or just a cozy place for 2.

Wonderful Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful base for our September/October leaf peeping! We spent two and a half weeks at this super clean and comfortable home. Due to the variety of weather we had, we enjoyed the beautiful deck with its high-end grill and also the cozy fireplace. Just wish we had used the firepit; maybe next time, because we would certainly love to return.

We have been renting from VRBO/Homeaway for many years in New England and the Outer Banks, and we have never experienced a better stocked pantry/frig. Just about every condiment/spice was provided... so convenient. Even the bathrooms had your basics... shampoo, alcohol, peroxide, bandaids, etc.

David was super to work with. The clothes dryer broke while we were there and the next day we had a new dryer in the laundry room! Our four-year-old grandson who was among our guests (all of whom also loved the place) was thrilled with the toys and books provided. There are so many activities in the area, and the beautiful town of Waitsfield is just down the hill. Don't miss their farmer's market on Saturdays... one of the best in the state. The owners have provided brochures on just about everything to do in central and northern Vermont! We would highly recommend this property and hope to come back again.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David... We came with our newborn and 1 year old toddler. We figured that if we are going to have to change diapers and have sleepless nights we might as well do it in a beautiful place during maternity leave.

It was a wonderful vacation. I nursed the baby on a comfortable couch while looking at the peaceful forest around us. My husband took our toddler on walks which delighted him. We went to nearby family farms to look at the animals and bought locally grown eggs and produce.

The house had everything you could want. Toiletries, even first aid basics, a well equipped kitchen. Lots of toys and games for all ages... Our toddler loved the little car he could ride in, the Lego, and the toy animals. They even had a good selection of children's books!

The house was beautiful and tastefully set up. I highly recommend it!

Great home, great views, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had -we highly recommend a stay here! The house was attractive, clean and comfortable with well-equipped kitchen (we didn't even use the lower level but lots of room for kids). The location is quiet and peaceful and there is a trailhead about a 1/4mile at the end of the road and we started nearly every morning with a short hike. This was our first trip to VT and there was lots to do without having to drive far (hiking, shopping, dining out, etc) ; we have a plug-in car and were able to do most trips on electric miles (Owner Dave is glad to accommodate the recharging) . In the evenings, we especially enjoyed stargazing on the wide deck along the back of the house -the Milky Way was amazing! We were there for the Perseid meteor shower -fantastic to watch the meteors streaking across the sky.
