Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this rental property or its owner. We were very impressed with how available, communicative, and hospitable she was. The location is a perfect getaway - located just a few minutes from the Vermont Country Store, which is a must-see! The house itself is very clean, organized, and well suited to accommodate your every need. Definitely a hidden gem!

House was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy long quiet mornings and peaceful dinners.

  • 4 of 5

Our only comments relate to location. There are 2 houses visible - both of which leave their lights on all night long and illuminate the upstairs bedroom accordingly. For privacy it would be nice to have curtains or shades - at least upstairs. Also, the house is directly on a road that services logging trucks so do be careful as they do not slow down for walkers!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of four friends really enjoyed our stay here. Our only regret was not being able to stay more than just the one night. It was just as described - and close to the cute town of Grafton. Will be back for a long stay some day.

Great Place to Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Love the house and the location! When we first got there we thought we were in the middle of nowhere…until I realized Okemo/ Jackson Gore were only 20-30 minutes away. Convenience stores and restaurants were even closer (10 minutes). Wi-Fi and all the modern amenities that make winding down in the evening so much easier. The house itself was beautiful and it was very obvious it was very well loved and taken care of. Also more than enough room for 2 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs. The "back yard" is full of woods and we spent several hours snow shoeing through it and letting the dogs wander around. Just a great alternative to doing the “resort” thing. I just wish we were able to stay longer. Next chance we can get to break away we will be back up there.

Cozy & sweet

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. It was in the single digits outside but we were always toasty inside. Our 4-year-old daughter said that her favorite part of our trip was sleeping. We spent lots of time lying on the comfy beds reading. The property is a quick drive to both Chester & Grafton. You can't really tell from the pictures, but the house is right on the road, which isn't busy but might not be ideal for very small wandering children.
