Your hosts are Lynn and Otto who manage the house and live on the farm just down the road.
This beautiful home was designed and built by Otto's late parents. The house was a center of family life during my parent's time there. The Northeast Kingdom, this part of Vermont where we are located, is a place that must be experienced to be appreciated.
While just four of us stayed at this comfortable, charming home, the entire family gathered in Vermont made it the "hang out" place & dinner, brunch locations. It was so roomy and open, everybody had plenty of space, but we were all together and enjoying holiday cheer. I could go on-and-on about the hospitality of the Wurzburgs- they were so accommodating and provided us with the freshest eggs we've ever tasted! It's our plan to stay at this location any time we visit our family in Northern Vermont!
We had such a fabulous time and the home was exactly that - a home. Hours could be wasted snuggled up in front of the log burner just looking at the view. Otto and Lynn made sure nothing was too much trouble and we had everything we needed. Thank you very very much
Wonderfully comfortable and spacious home in a fantastic country setting. The kitchen has everything and we enjoyed being there so much we cooked all our meals. Otto and Lynn were very helpful and friendly and gave us yummy treats from their garden.The property is expansive and great for hiking and exploring. The night sky was amazing. Ideal house for a gathering of family and friends.
We have a great time in Vermont staying at this beautiful farmhouse. The location was convenient to skiing at Burke Mountain (15-20 minutes) and the area / views were outstanding. Otto and Lynn, who own the house, live right down the street and could not have been nicer giving us a quick tour of the house as we arrived along with some fresh maple syrup, invited our kids come see their chickens, sheep and geese.
The house is in great shape. There is plenty of room, extremely clean and it is stocked with different activities for the kids both inside (board games, DVD) and outside (logging trails) on the property. It was a great time and we look forward to coming back.
What a beautiful (and huge!) house in such a gorgeous landscape with breath-taking views! You will enjoy this family house, with so much attention to details in the decor, especially for all of you coming from Europe, you will recognize a piece of your homeland like we did. We are French and were quite very surprised to find a 1000 Bornes game so far from the mothership which brought back memories for us like a madeleine de Proust.
Large kitchen, plenty of light, warmth, eggs and syrup, thank you so much to the Wurzburg family for their very welcoming house and mind!
This has been our second stay in this wonderful vacation home. The first time, we spent 5 days in April, 2011. Now we had great 14 days of winterwonderland in this beautiful cozy, very well equipped and maintained house. And we are looking forward to our 3rd stay at the beginning of June. This house is like coming home: a perfect spot to relax and regenerate. This is not only because of the very cozy interior, the awesome panorama view out of the livingroom and wintergarden windows, the great library with a wonderful selection of a lot of interesting books, but especially the hospitality of the owners, who made us feel so welcome and at home - thank you very much! The house is located a few miles out of St. Johnsbury, the road is well maintained also in winter. Within 10 min. you are in town, within 20 min., you reach the Burke mountain ski area. Right out of the front door, you can find wonderful hiking trails where you can find poem tables attached to some trees.
The farm of the owners produce its own organic food, and if you like, you can get fresh eggs and vegetables. We can highly recommend this wonderful place! Juergen, Karen and Marion from Hannover, Germany
