Mixed review

  • 4 of 5

A mixed review. We have stayed in 4 other houses in the greater Woodstock area so we know the area. We have been traveling to Woodstock for 40 years.

The house is comfortable and located in a wonderful area. Great for walks, hikes and drives through some of the most scenic country roads in the area. It is very quiet and peaceful. We loved this area located in the heart of Green Mountain Horse Association.

It has 4 nice bedrooms. The bedrooms for kids are cute.

The amenities could be improved. The TV is ancient. The remote controllers do not work well. The kitchen is sparsely appointed. The WiFi is a problem. It is out of date, works intermittently and is very very slow. That was constantly a problem for us. All of these deficiencies could be easily corrected. The house is for sale at a bargain price.

The agent in charge was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay.

Quirky house but wonderful area

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice home in a wonderful location. Unfortunately we had some serious issues with it. First of all, the basement family room was unusable do to very heavy mold smell. We could not use the dining room area at all because the lighting was not working, and the washing machine was broken. The rental agent was helpful but explained that things don't get fixed all that quickly in this area. So, we had to make three trips to the coin operated laundry in the town (which he compensated us for).

The house is comfortable and well equipped. The big bright open spaces on the first floor were very nice. Perhaps the biggest problem with the house is that there is only one bathroom serving all the bedrooms upstairs. The other full bath was useless since it was located by the back door on the first floor. Strange. The stairs to the second floor bedrooms are quite steep. Toddlers and elderly would find them to be a problem.

This home is in a very picturesque area. It is close to the Green Mountain Horse Assn. but not really all that convenient to Woodstock itself. Best guess is that it is about a 20-25 minute drive. GPS will get you close to the house, but is about 1/4 mile off. Better signage would be appreciated. The driveway is dirt and somewhat steep. I suspect that four wheel drive would be required in winter.

The booking process is a bit cumbersome. Because the house is for sale, rentals are handled by a real estate agent. They do not use the Homeaway payment system or online rental agreement. You must mail a paper check and sign a rental agreement. Getting our deposit back proved to be a protracted process. Apparently their online banking system did not work....finally they mailed out a check. I counted the back and forth emails and was surprised to see more than 20 to sort out the rental, problems with the property, and the deposit.

Enjoying the beauty in this Vermont home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying in this wonderful home with very good friends and their family. Loved the peacefulness of the area and being so close to the charming town of Woodstock. Spent time walking, hiking, horseback riding and just relaxing. Great way to escape the craziness of life.The house had everything we needed and felt so comfortable staying all week. Looking forward to coming back to enjoy the foliage this coming fall.

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming and well maintained home. Beautifully decorated with antique skis and four poster beds. Very comfortable for two families to share. Great location close to adorable town of Woodstock -- great shops and restaurants, and even a spa and healthclub! Awesome for a ski vacation -- Local mountain Suicide Six is perfect for families and its Short ride to skiing at Killington and Pico, and just a little further to Okemo. Property borders on GMHC trails for hiking and snowshoeing. Highly reccomend! Can't wait to go back next winter!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had very high hopes for the late ski trip with our family and this was the perfect choice! Close to the slopes and cross country skiing and also perfect distance to in town for the quaint charm of Woodstock. ( Must try the Kedron Valley Inn- local farm to table cuisine and that porch is beckoning when we return for leaf peeping :-). The open floorplan and woodburning stove helped to make it the perfect family trip ( even our teenagers were in love with the house and the town ). The owners were a pleasure to deal with and thought of every little touch. The house was immaculate and felt more like a home away from home than a generic rental property!Thank you for sharing your wonderful property and we will be back to see the leaves change!
