Great ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our group of 13 has stayed at this property. The home is spacious and we never felt like we were on top of each other. The kids played Foosball, while the adults hung by the fire and watched the snow fall! The kitchen was recently renovated and has everything the chef in your group could ask for. We did received a significant amount of snow during our trip, which was perfect; the driveway was cleared as well as the roads leading into the property. We hope to be back again!

Excellent--this was our senior ski group's 4th stay in the house and hope to return next year.

  • 4 of 5

The owners did a great job remodeling the kitchen and making additional updates which pleased the members of our entire group.

As it is in VT the cellular and wifi service can be less than what your needs may be but it can be a plus if you just want to "disconnect" for your getaway.

Perfect home for families to gather

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped, beautiful, spacious home with a floor plan that brings large groups together. Our extended family loved it! Just bring slippers or socks with rubber soles to navigate the hardwood stairs. Everything else is provided:-)

Beautiful house at a great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a party of 10 whoe rented this house for our New Years weekend. The house is beautiful, very well built, and the location is great too - a winter wonderland in the woods, close to the Stratton mountain resort. This house has a brand new kitchen, a beautiful living room with large windows and plenty of light and nice views. All the bedrooms are great too, with comfortable beds.

Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the house and the area a lot. Would love to return in the future.

Great family ski get away!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a large family get away. The bedrooms are spread out nicely, making it easy to house children and multiple families. We also really appreciated the multiple bathrooms with showers or tubs making getting ready in the mornings seamless. The barstools in the kitchen accommodated all of the children in our party well for quick pre-ski breakfasts and the beautiful long dining table next to the fireplace made dinners feel cozy and warm. We really look forward to returning!

"New" house in poor condition

  • 2 of 5

The positives: This house is huge and plenty big enough for a large family to spread out. It is in a great location near multiple ski spots and great hiking spots, it's well-equipped with TVs, nice linens, and plenty of dishes and silverware.

The cons: The house has a lot of damage from previous renters which I photographed and sent to the owner upon arrival and later as I discovered it. Some folks may not mind the "lived-in" look, but to us it looked like a fraternity party had happened before we got there. For example: A broken stair spindle, broken couch, broken bench, missing interior doorknob to a bathroom (which trapped a child for a period of time), multiple cracked windows, missing front stoop tiles, broken or missing baseboard heater covers, multiple holes in walls even around switch plate covers, non-functional grills, missing or broken drawer fronts in the kitchen, not functional water/ice dispensers on the refrigerator (not hooked up yet). There were also mouse droppings in front of the refrigerator and flies on the windowsill which the owner attributed to the unseasonable warm temperatures. Even more repulsive than the mouse droppings was the black, rotten wood around the UN-CLEANABLE kitchen sink.

With all the issues described and pictures sent, the only things the owner finally responded to were the flies (warm weather), the missing smoke detectors in the ceiling (apparently others were wall-mounted) , the refrigerator ice/water not yet being hooked up, and the grills which she hadn't expected anyone to want to use. Nothing else was acknowledged. She offered a refund on the cleaning service but I did not take her up on it. The lion's share of the issues had nothing to do with cleaning and everything to do with poor maintenance.

Owner's Response: This is our family home, which we love and enjoy. The home is 5000 sq. feet, with massive post and beam construction and huge windows that look out at enormous old growth pine trees. It is a very special Vermont spot. We know of no home in the Stratton area where two families can gather with plenty of room (unless you want to spend crazy money). Most of our guests are return customers. We have high quality bedding, which is always cleaned, and we have a wonderful local family who maintains the property if we are not there. We will be putting in a new kitchen this spring. While we are proud of the home, If you want to study every nook and cranny of a 5000 sq. foot home then you will find minor issues. A hotel would have been more appropriate for a guest like this. It was very upsetting to us to receive such a negative comment. Another member of her party called my husband on Christmas eve, and my husband spent hours trying to help them. He contacted us the next day and thanked us. Peace and Love!
