Overview

About the property

3 bedroom plus loft, two baths, - close to ski mts., hourse show and town

This is a beautiful log home. It has three bedrooms plus loft and two full bathrooms. It sleeps 8 comfortably, 10 if you're all close friends. There are hardwood floors and cathedral ceilings around a gorgeous stone floor-to-ceiling fireplace. The kitchen is great and well stocked with updated appliances. There is a gas grill on the deck and stunning mountain views! There is a separate 2 bedroom apartment that is available for larger parties.

This is our family home that we very much enjoy using when we are not renting to guests. Because it's a log home, it has a lot of charm and Vermont 'warmth' to it. The logs and wood finishes throughout may have some aesthetics imperfections due to the aging of the logs, but we think this adds to the charm of the place.

Please come and relax. Enjoy the ski mountains (5 miles to Bromley), the horse show (10 minutes from the house in the summer) and all the amenities that the town has to offer including shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Each summer Manchester hosts an amazing international horse show. The house is only a couple of minutes from the show grounds. Additional activities include: walks in the woods, hikes, gulf, kayaking, river tubing, pond swimming, fishing, picnics, theater, and music festivals - the possibilities are endless.

If you like fine dining or family style, there are many chef owned and unique restaurants in town. How about pampering? Spas, yoga, massages, hair and nails; check out the many resort amenities in town that are open to the public. If shopping is your thing, there are outlet stores nestled in and among boutique shops and art galleries.

The town is so pretty! If you want to experience a bit of Old New England, head up to the village area where you can visit the Robert Todd Lincoln estate and then have a drink on the porch of the historic Equinox Hotel. After, take a walk along the gorgeous marble sidewalk and marvel at the mansions, some with old carriage houses all beautifully restored and maintained.

Manchester is close to the ski resorts that in the off-season offer golf, horseback riding, music, hiking, and the alpine slide among other activities.

Whether you want to relax in the beautiful home, or get out and visit the town, there is something for everyone. As the locals like to say, 'Relax, this is Vermont'.

A 17the year getogther of 10 lovely ladies!!

  • 5 of 5

The house and apartment were perfect for us. It was clean, well equipped, reasonably priced and cozy. All the beds were reported to be very comfortable. The location was surrounded in trees and beautiful views but close to Manchester and hiking trails. Our landlady Patti was very helpful getting this together. Her suggestions and flexibility was most appreciated. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Everything you need is there, and everything is close by.

  • 5 of 5

This place has a comfortable feel. We all slept well, and woke up rested. With 11 of us staying here there was ample space and comfortable beds. Also we were close to town. We would do it again.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Awesome experience at this house! Perfect for a relaxing weekend with friends! Thank you :) only subtracted a star bc a few more towels would have been good, trash bags in the house, and an unexpected furry visitor found deceased in our closet (although the welcome guide in the house mentioned this as a risk)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us, I'm glad you had a good time. I think perhaps you didn't peek into the linen closet next to the bathroom where we keep the supplies. Thanks for letting me know, I'll update the information sheet so that guests know where to find extra supplies including at least 12 bath-sized towels. We appreciate your visit and hope that you choose to visit again.

Roomy, well appointed home 10 mins from VSF

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, well appointed home. Good location relative to VSF, about 10 minutes away. Great communication with host. A/C in bedrooms very welcome, but the unit in the master bedroom was struggling. Highly recommend.
