About Charles Harris

The Mettawee house was originally purchased by the owners as a vacation home. The owners loved the Danby location, and the local residents were incredibly friendly. The indoor pool was a great feature, that isn't found in many homes - particularly in Vermont! The owners like the property so much that they decided to share it with others so that they could experience the gorgeous setting, incredible views, and unique Vermont experience.

Why Charles Harris chose Stratton and Bromley Ski Areas

Welcome to Vermont! In the Green Mountains State, you'll find famous fall foliage, renowned maple syrup and the most snow on the east coast. But there is so much more too: enjoy local food at restaurants and farmers’ markets, savor the revered beer culture, meet world-class artisans, explore endless recreational opportunities, rejuvenate at the spa, learn at noteworthy historic sites and above all, please stay awhile… Vermont’s attributes will continue to reveal themselves to you in honest and inspiring ways.

Vermonters are known for their independent-thinking, friendliness, sportiness, and resourcefulness. The state’s residents love the land and are committed to preserving, as well as sharing it. Vermont’s agricultural traditions have created open working landscapes amid a backdrop of mountains, many of which make up the nation’s first through-hiking trail, the Long Trail.

While it’s easy to spend days simply taking in the scenery, it’s even more rewarding to become a part of it. It’s easy to explore backs roads and well-maintained trails by bicycle. Go for a run or walk along busy downtown paths or quiet villages with covered bridges. Drop into a halfpipe on your skis or snowboard and share the trail with local Olympians. Cast a line in a lake or stream, or relax beachside at a pristine state park. Whatever the day brings, the night is sure to deliver a solid night’s rest - whether you choose to camp under the stars, cozy up under a quilt at an inn, or appreciate the thread-count at a luxurious resort.

In Vermont, one thing is beautifully certain: The seasons will change. And with that change, so does the landscape, the recreation, and the way of life. With every season comes new opportunities to explore the world around you. Welcome to a state that is truly never out of season.

What makes this house unique

Unique Benefits:

Swimming in the indoor pool in the middle of a snow storm

Unparalleled views of the mountains

Night-time sky - more stars than you have seen before

No other people, houses or cars around - it's really quiet!

Wonderful place for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for a weekend in Vermont! The house was very clean upon arrival and we used the kitchen to prepare meals all weekend. The location has gorgeous views and is just a short drive from Manchester for restaurants, grocery stores, outlets, and more. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all felt at home for the weekend away. Would definitely return!

A great place to hang out with friends!

  • 5 of 5

The Mettawee house was the perfect setting for our weekend get away Bachelorette party. Clean, comfortable, and spacious, we used the common rooms during the day for lounging and games and still all had a private space to retreat to at night. It was cold outside but the pool was a comfortable temperature and there are great views from every window. Would definitely use again!!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time with friends saying at the Mettawee house. We used the well appointed kitchen to make a few meals, got to go swimming in the indoor pool, and slept well in comfortable rooms. Everything we needed was there! I only wish we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful views, Amazing accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Littlebranch for 2 nights and 3 days. Although the weather was cold, the warmth of the property and the kindness of the owners made for an unforgettable stay. The owners were very communicative throughout the process, and the house is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Our guests enjoyed the indoor pool and made use of all of the rooms, which were clean and hospitable. We will definitely stay here in the future! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. The two houses together make a great place for a larger group or groups, with two separate houses, different things to do at each house, and an expanse of open space. The pool at the Mettawee house can be used by guests at both houses when the properties are rented together. The two houses are about 300 feet apart. Thank you again for the fantastic review!

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL, SPACIOUS PROPERTY .As a child I spent summers with my grandparent in Vermont. My children are born Floridians so before they become too old to travel with mom I wanted them to see the real Vermont. Just spectacular! I thought we might be too late for the changing leaves- but it was just perfect. Spacious well equipped home. We were a party of nine and home was more than enough. Plenty of things to do, SHOPPING, horseback riding, exploring- but also away from it all for privacy. The indoor pool was the icing on the cake for the kids. The owner Charles was great, very attentive throughout the reservation process and through our stay.

Perfect setting for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful family reunion (12 adults and 11 children) at the two Mettawee properties. The website description was well-done and accurate, making it easy to imagine us staying there. The amenities were high-end, the property was immaculate and our adult kids were thrilled with the layout and location. Our grandkids enjoyed playing ball and flashlight tag at night on the well manicured lawns.

The Mettawee House has the huge master suite next to the pool - a real treat for one of our CA based families. The pool room is spacious and well equipped. The two upstairs bedrooms are cozy and comfortable for sleeping. No one wanted to use the twin beds in the windowless basement room, but the ping-pong table was well used. There is a spacious deck with plenty of seating and a superior grill.  The kitchen is well equipped, and the adjacent pantry is very convenient.  The appliances are top-of-the-line, helping to make cooking a pleasure.  There is also a large but cozy living room/library with a fireplace.
