We loved this house! One of the nicest we have stayed in. It was so beautiful, well appointed, clean, and tastefully decorated. We also loved the apple trees and the miniature donkeys next door. We will definitely be back next year!!
This property is amazing. The home is located just 5 min from Middlebury and a perfect location! The home had three great bedrooms - and room for more on a pull out couch and a futon located in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen was brand new and well equipped with all the cooking utensils one could ever need. Brand new feel to the entire home and beautiful location! I would highly recommend this home to a family or multiple couples. We will come back for sure!
What a beautiful home outside of Middlebury! The setting was so charming with the apple trees and the neighboring miniature donkeys. Everything was so comfortable in the house. The kitchen was well equipped. We were there at the height of apple season and enjoyed cooking a few cobblers. We enjoyed walking with our dog on Cider Mill Road and around the Middlebury TAM.
Our second stay and we loved it. The location is rural, private, but ten munutes from Middlebury. Good resturants,
Beautiful college town.
The house is new and beautiful, friendly neighbors, (cute small donkeys) and apple trees on the property. Lucky for us
The apples were ripe.

We were in town for a swim meet at Middlebury College and stayed with two other couples. The space was perfect! The home is clearly a labor of love and the custom work is beautiful. The location was great, close to the college and also a perfect street to walk on and enjoy the views. We highly recommend staying here!
A group of us, 2 couples, stayed for a short weekend getaway in January. This house is absolutely perfect for a quiet retreat when you need to unwind. The amenities are fantastic, the house is perfectly comfortable, and the details in the home show how much care and pride the owner takes in the property. Between cooking a great breakfast with local products to watching the cathedral mules in the pen in the farm next door, this home was exactly what we were looking for. I recommend this property to anyone, from families planning a trip or friends looking for a quick weekend vacation. Whenever I visit this side of Vermont, I will return to this home.
Middlebury is in the heart of the Champlain Valley and accessible to many diverse activities. The college town offers great restaurants, galleries, shopping, theatre and movies. Cultural and sporting venues are close at hand. Several ski resorts are less than 1 hour away. Year round climbing in the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks are superb. Lake Champlain is 10 minutes west. Burlington is 45 minutes north with exceptional restaurants, entertainment, and spectacular views along Lake Champlain.
