This place was great! We booked a last minute road trip and wanted to avoid chain hotels if possible. We found this VRBO that allowed 1 night stays (most have a 2 night minimum) and it looked decent. The pictures are a good representation of the place. It's not perfect, but we didn't want perfect. We wanted a secluded, charming, rustic, house that felt like Vermont.. this was it! Highly recommended.
A very charming property in the woods between Grafton and Chester, this home was originally a tiny New England schoolhouse! The small house has a sweet energy and is conveniently located alongside a quiet, and seldom travelled Vermont country road on the very corner of its wooded acreage. There is a wonderful kitchen; open living/dining; small downstairs bedroom and a large upstairs bedroom area. The bathroom has a jacuzzi tub, though we didn't use it. Ceilings are surprisingly high and the space is bright and airy. The renovation was smart and well thought out, and the interior is nicely appointed with the needed basics. Best features are the working cast iron wood stove; the outside deck; and the exposed raw birch rafters on the second floor.
We loved staying here! It is a perfect set-up staying with our grandchildren as there is lots of room for sleeping & play. There are plenty of games and books included for all ages. We used the croquet set, hammock and grill outdoors. The house is charming and inviting, I would definitely stay here again! Actually, I want to LIVE there! The host is very accommodating -- we had to contact her with a question and she was very congenial and helpful. There is one bathroom but the 6 of us had no issues taking turns.
The rental was clean and in good shape. The wifi did not work but most of our group was happy to disconnect for a day.
The description states the property is on 22 acres. We did not get to utilize the land as it was hard to identify where trails may have been.
Our family rented this cozy cottage for a few days in late December, planning to ski at nearby Magic Mountain. When that resort was closed, we were happy to discover that Okemo is also nearby and had a great time skiing. We also enjoyed a wonderful tour of Plummer's Sugar House and a hike in the woods near the cottage. The cottage itself was beautiful, clean, and very well kept, with everything we needed. The kitchen was very well set up with a full size stove, all the pots, pans, cookie sheets and pizza pans we needed to cook. The place was also warm and very comfortable. The loft was great for our kids and we were impressed that the extra sleeping spots were actually mattresses, not folding cots. Someone even came and plowed out the parking spots after it snowed!
