Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Get away from it all in this beautiful cabin in the woods. Relax in a private location with 10 acres of land (including a brook!), but just minutes from everything the Mad River Valley has to offer. Modern amenities meet rustic beauty in this cozy home.

Radiant heat rises from VT slate floors to keep your feet toasty. In addition, the wood burning stove offers an open fire experience while providing added warmth. A modern eat-in kitchen with stunning views of Burnt Rock complements your morning coffee.

Master bedroom has a Queen bed. Second bedroom has a bunk bed as well as a trundeled twin, for a total of 4 twin mattresses. Large, comfortable sectional sofa or Queen-size air mattress provide additional sleeping space.

Home is located on a dirt road, so 4-wheel drive or good snow tires are recommended in the winter.

gorgeous location and area, had a few issues with house

  • 3 of 5

My husband, our dog and I stayed for a week july 1-8. We had a poor start to our stay. When we arrived Sat. evening, we found the house had not been cleaned. Kevin, the owner, was extremely responsive and apologetic, and he contacted the cleaners and got them in the next morning. But it was a real disappointment to start our trip, and we had to scramble to find a dog-friendly hotel room for the night and wasted some of our time dealing with it all. Again, Kevin was helpful in that also and reimbursed us the cost of the night's stay and the cleaning fee.

The area is beautiful!! We enjoyed lots of short hikes with our dog, and the rivers and streams were high, so it was handy for watering the dog on hikes. The yard was big enough to kick the tennis ball around for the dog and get her some exercise. Access roads to the house are incredibly steep mountain roads, which is great for a workout, but not for an easy walk. But well worth it.

As for the house, it's obviously a ski house, which is not a problem, but it needs a few upgrades to make it better for summer rental. There are several (3-4?) sliding glass doors, and several of them were permanently closed (i.e., wood bolted to floor inside runner to keep shut). Although it mostly stayed cool inside, one or two days were warmer than others, and it was difficult to get a breeze going. There were a few casement windows on one side, over the dining room table, but one of them had a broken crank handle. All windows/sliders that did open had screens but were full of cobwebs and dirty. It would be great if these got cleaned out and fixed up. It wasn't a major problem, but it definitely detracted from the comfort of the house. Also, we made the unfortunate discovery that one of the blankets had clearly - from the stench - been urinated on and then folded up and put away. We'd recommend a deep clean!

The house also felt run down in a few other regards -- dining room chairs were old and several broken - these really need replacing. Broken towel bar in the upstairs bathroom.

I don't want to point out only the negative aspects. Once the place got cleaned, the floors were beautiful and spotless -- and appliances worked fine. And Kevin even bought a brand new gas grill when I told him we would be using it a lot and he checked his and found it was on the fritz. Much appreciated! The place is totally private and quiet, deer came through the yard a few times. That aspect was perfect!

Hope this is helpful!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Sorry about the rough start to your stay. I just want to clarify that the sliding doors are not permanently closed. A former renter fabricated their own door stops. I thought they were pretty cool and have left them in since. The bolt allows you to more easily grab the stops to remove them from the door jam. I can see how you would have thought otherwise, but the doors do open. I do need to fix some of the screens, and will make sure the cleaning people do a better job with the window. I''ve found a new cleaning service since your stay. Not to make excuses, but I've had a hard time keeping up with things since my divorce a few years back. I am discounting the rates for the rest of the summer and will update the house through the rest of the summer and fall. I always give my cell number to renters and will help out in any way I can to make the stay better.

Great location, cozy, and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed this New Year's and had a great experience. (We only wish we had one more day!) We had two couples and two small children and everyone fit comfortably. We loved the wood stove that warmed the entire house, as well as the nice slate floors. We were lucky enough to have a fresh snowfall, so made sure we took advantage of sledding on the large property! The location was great. We could easily access Stowe, Sugarbush, and a number of other things to do like the Ben and Jerrys factory. The cabin was clean and the kitchen was spacious with great views. So much natural light! The only thing I would recommend is to be sure you have good snow tires or a car that handles snow well in Winter. We will definitely be back!

perfect home for ski vacation!

  • 4 of 5

House was cozy, very comfortable and a short ride to everything. Plows came to the property once a day which was all that was needed.

Loved the location, wished there was attention to detail.

  • 2 of 5

The location was great; quiet, country, lots to do in the Mad River Valley & close to all of northern Vermont.

Our disappointment regards the interior of the residence. It appeared that no one prepared for our arrival. Observations: there were damp towels in the kitchen. We brought them to the dryer to find a full load of wet towels in the dryer. The top of the stove was covered with grease. No hand soap in the bathrooms or kitchen sink. Could not start the grill. It appeared the tank was empty. The back up was empty. Dead batteries were not changed. A flashlight was left out for our use above the kitchen sink. Dead batteries. Clocks in the living area were conveniently located and not working. Dead batteries. We watched the Red Sox on NESN in the evening. The next night, we could not access the NESN station. I spoke with Kevin. He cut back on the cable without discussion/notification. After the phone discussion, he brought NESN back. Any one of these observations could be overlooked as as mistake. Our observations create a pattern of owner inattention.

10 days - quiet & comfort - some skiing and hiking

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the house is great, lots of light - just a good easy size with a nice flow - the radiant heat is cozy, the wood burning stove charming, great kitchen, beds comfortable, nice living room with a comfy couch - having my dog there with me made it perfect. the pictures dont do it justice! The snow wasn't great for skiing, but the weather was perfect for hiking - I would book again in a heartbeat.

Lovely, quiet home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Feeney Hollow. The location was perfect for us - quiet and secluded from it all, with a beautiful "babbling brook" behind the house. The only tricky part was getting there during "a mud"! But our 4-wheel drive got us through. It really is a lovely home and we look forward to being back there as soon as we can!
