About Maureen

My husband and I have been avid outdoors-people our entire lives. Unfortunately our career paths didn't lead us to being able to live in the wilderness. We have vacationed in Vermont year after year, and after having lived in Europe and experienced the Alps...we had to have a piece of the mountains for ourselves. Our children are huge skiers and love the summer water sports and hiking/biking that Vermont offers...and of course, Bromley's summer fun park! We hope that our home is as wonderful a retreat for you as it is for us; leaving reality behind for a stay in a mountain hideaway!

Maureen purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Maureen chose South Londonderry

If we could live in Vermont full time, we would!!! We bought this home to have a piece of paradise and the fresh air and ability to relax and enjoy nature. And to get our 10 acres of land that everyone dreams of.

Perfect winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We booked the property for a group of 3 families with 6 adults and 5 kids.

The house is beautiful and very spacious.

We had plenty of room for everyone and actually we could have had another family with us.

The house is at the end of the road so there is no traffic at all...

Stratton Ski resort is just 15 minutes from the house.

We would recommend it for large groups with kids.

Another perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this property and as good as we all remembered it, I think we now appreciate it even more.

Here are the catchwords you should take away from reading this review:

Large with room for 15 without feeling crowded; lovingly maintained; surround-sound entertainment system with iPod auxiliary source adapter; 3 1/2 baths with tons of hot water; fully stocked kitchen tools including an immersion blender for sauces; caretakers that are local and always available.

On top of it all, we had the first significant snow of this wacky winter so it couldn't have been any better.

Great house with lots of space.

  • 4 of 5

The living room with windows on three sides and a cathedral ceiling are a magnificent gathering place for friends and family. The owners and caretaker were great.

Owner's Response: We are are so happy that you enjoyed the house. Sorry that the weather wasn't better for your family vacation. I am happy that my caretaker could resolve the detector problem and keep you at ease about your safety. Please think of us again when vising Vermont.

The perfect ski house

  • 5 of 5

Really nice, well maintained property, feels like new. Many lovely details, the owners put their hearts into it, truly a home away from home. We had a group of 10 adults and 2 children and never felt closed-in (roomy). Been skiing/traveling over 50 years and this place is up with the best.

For alpine skiing, Magic Mt. is minutes away and deserted. The Stratton crowd frowns at the mere mention (good God, no high speed chairs?) but don't be fooled, it's like a private mountain and what Vermont was like before skiing became synonymous with real estate development schemes.

In fairness, both Bromley and Stratton are close and have all the amenities of world-class ski resorts, including excellent child-care/learn to ski programs.

All of this within 4 hours of NY/NJ. My early.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this property in both the summer and winter. Both were equally wonderful. All the modern amenities you have at your own home and so much space to spread out. It's a great mountain property with lots of privacy. Close to the mountains and shopping. I hope to be able to stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights ,8 guys over 45 & 2 of us over 60. Lots of room for all of us. The beds are great & the layout is perfect , kitchen & family room are large with room for all.

Pictures on web site do not do this place justice.

Recommended for old guys , can't go wrong.

the property is located off of Thompsonburg Road in South Londonderry. The closest shopping center is in the village of Londonderry, a short 5 minute or so drive. There are restaurants and post office, bank and hardware store, etc..all within a 5-7 minute drive. Manchester is 20 minutes away and Weston is about 15 minutes..from late spring to mid-autumn, the saturday farmer's market is a must-do..right in town.

Other Activities: snowboarding, wildlife viewing, mini golf, shopping, kayaking, snowmobiling, skiing- both nordic and downhill, snow shoeing, trekking, canoeing,

Golf: There are several golf courses in the area. Stratton mountain has its own golf school for people of all ages.

Ski: stratton, bromley, magic and okemo

All are within 30 minutes. Magic is 5 minutes (max), bromley and stratton are 15 minutes and okemo is 30 minutes from the property.

The Dorset Horse Show during July is about 25 minutes away and this home is a great getaway to relax after the long hot days of competition.
