Why John Frank chose Killington Area

After owning our previously Killington vacation home for 20 years, we had the opportunity to purchase this large modern home in a more private and relaxed section of town.

What makes this house unique

The Post & Beam design gives this home a wonderful rustic feel that seems to fit right in with the Vermont landscape. The homes towering cathedral ceilings, large windows and elevated private setting give visitors wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

Ideal house for a guys weekend get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

The house was large enough to sleep 15 guys comfortably and the 5 acres of property was large enough to host a weekend competition complete with Cornhole, BocceBall, Wiffleball Homerun Derby, Frisbee Golf and a closest to the pin competition on the 100 yard downhill golf hole over water. We took full advantage of the large kitchen which includes a beautiful rustic table that can seat 12 people as well as the barbeque, and firepit. John (the owner) was very easy to get in touch with and was happy to answer any questions we had before, during, and after our rental. We will definitely be back to rent this property again in the future!

Made for wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

We rented Estabrook house for our family's stay as we celebrated our daughter's marriage. The house is wonderful. It comfortably held our extended family, was large enough for a dinner/party for 30+, and in a beautifully landscaped woodland. The location was easy to find, and very private. Several people commented that the site would have been a great venue for the wedding itself. We agree.

It was also located centrally to the many activities in the area. As we packed to leave I heard someone ask, "When can we rent this again?"

Good location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed April vaca school week. House was clean, warm and cozy. Kids, parents and grandparents all slept in our rooms. 2 kitchens was a plus but not needed. Unfortunately due to weather the local golf courses were not yet open. Got in some great spring skiing at kiloington tho! Local hikes were also very close by.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here last year, and I realized that I never sent in my review! This place was absolutely lovely! The home is beautiful, there was a TON of space and plenty of heaters, the owner was extremely accommodating and allowed us to bring our border collie. Outside was just as good--it was quiet and far enough off the main roads that it felt secluded, but close enough to the mountain where it only took us maybe 10 minutes to get there and on the slopes. There was a beautiful view, and plenty of space for our dog to run (which, when you have a border collie, is always a concern!). Can't say enough good things about this place! If we have a chance to get out next year, we will definitely try to book again!

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We book an annual family vacation this year in beautiful Killington VT. 8 Adults, 2 kids under 7, 1 toddler, and 2 babies.

Easy to find at the end of a long uphill dirt driveway. Lots of trees, and we even saw a deer and a turkey! Arriving at the house, we noticed the lawn needed mowing badly. We wouldn't have minded if it was just adults, but we were traveling with young children who loved to play outside, so we were concerned about ticks. Called owner, and he had someone over in 15 minutes who mowed for us so we could enjoyed the huge lawn.

Space inside was large and open. Big kitchen island to put our groceries. Enough kitchen equipment to cook for all of us almost every night. We also used the grill on the deck. The sectional couch was nice, great for lounging after a day of activities. But the house overall could have been cleaner, and the downstairs was stuffy and musty. A dehumidifier could fix that, and a deep cleaning too.

5+ Stars! Incredible home, and experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using Home Away to reserve a vacation home, and if this experience is any indication of how all rentals booked through this site turn out—we are hooked! We reserved this home for the first week of July, to house a large group of our family and friends as we drove up from Virginia. We had a small wedding ceremony/elopement on Lake Bomoseen on the Fourth of July, and wanted to provide accommodations for the very few close family and friends that were joining us from out of state.

From the very beginning of our reservation oricess - through the return of our security deposit, the homeowner was a pleasure to work with. He was very patient with us as we ran into some small delays submitting the lease paperwork along with planning a wedding from out of state (complete chaos!). He was also incredibly thorough—mailing us a booklet weeks before our visit detailing everything we needed to know about the house during our stay.

We ended up with a good size group, with several couples as well as five kids (give or take). The house was incredibly spacious, with a whole additional living area downstairs (the bottom floor, of three floors total)! The kids loved having the downstairs living room separate from the adults (with their own full kitchen even), and the spacious and open living area/kitchen on the main floor hosted several family/group dinners.

The two bedrooms on the top floor with the full bath were very comfortable and welcoming, as well as the four additional bedrooms throughout the rest of the house. We took full advantage of the two decks and grill, as well as the fire pit that was provided.

Thank you so much for making the accommodations during our wedding so seamless and stress free, we are so grateful to have had such a wonderful experience in your home.
