Great House for Large NYE Group

  • 5 of 5

For the past 5 or so years, a large group of friends gets together for New Years. It was unanimous that this house was our favorite rental, and could be our go-to house moving forward. Very large and spacious. Plenty of common area space for both one (very) large group or to break off into smaller groups. Enough beds for 20 people (assuming you have some couples/share beds).

Kim was very responsive and the entire rental process was hassle-free. House was clean and stocked with the essentials.

Our group didn't ski but you can see the mountain from the kitchen. Couldn't recommend this house more.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our yearly family reunion.

There were 15 of us in the home.

This was our first experience with a home away rental and we loved it.

The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed.

The accommodations were great and it was a lot of fun being able

to cook together and spend time in this large comfortable home.

The owner and realtor were very accessible when we had a question. It was an all around great rental.

Ski Trip with Large Group

  • 5 of 5

This was our group's 3rd year renting this home. We can't say enough great things about the place - it's spacious, clean, close to Jiminy Peak, and accommodates our large group of around 20 people each year. We will continue renting this home every year as long as it's available!

Thanksgiving/Wedding Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate Thanksgiving and my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The rambling house was perfect and spacious for all 16 of us. The huge family room was perfect for our celebration and the big kitchen/dining room area was great for dinner and breakfast. I would recommend this house to anyone for a family reunion. It would also be a great house to rent for families looking for a ski week or weekend.

I also want to add that dealing with Kim was a pleasure. I have rented through HomeAway and VRBO a few times and I can honestly say that Kim provided the most attention than any of the others. She was proactive in reaching out to me a few days before our stay and then again on the day of our arrival. Dealing with someone who is so attentive makes the whole experience much less stressful.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this house don't do it justice. This house was unbelievable! We had a family group of 22 celebrating my father's 88th birthday. 4 families with kids plus grandparents. Very comfortable beds, house was immaculate, bathrooms spotless! Everything you could possibly need for cooking which we did all weekend, as well as plenty of towels for all. The kitchen table was enormous, perfect for everyone eating together & playing games after dinner. The fireplace & pellet stove were awesome and kept the house comfortably warm (along with thermostats in almost every bedroom). The welcome booklet explained everything for us. The leather couches in the huge living room were also very cozy. The mud room was awesome for loading & unloading all our belongings. No one felt crowded or had to wait for the bathrooms. We didn't want the weekend to come to an end. This house was super!

This vacation rental was AMAZING in every way! Clean, oversized, and well furnished! Only a minute away from Jiminy Ski Resort was so convenient. Highly recommend this rental and we will sure to be back.
