About The Owner

We are a family of four (with two grown daughters) now spread between California and Florida, though we raised our children in Boston with summers in our Vermont house. Having retired to Florida, the house does not get as much use, and we decided it was time to share our special home on the Connecticut River with others!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1970

Why The Owner chose Vermont

Within easy reach of Boston, the setting was perfect for a peaceful weekend out of the city. With small children, the ability to let them roam the woods and river was priceless, while the river sports, hiking and tennis proved relaxing for adults as well.

What makes this cabin unique

A morning swim in the river, when the water is like glass and the birds are out, followed by coffee on the porch, is the perfect summer morning.

Foliage season is spectacular in this area, with the woods surrounding the house ablaze with color. Crisp morning hikes with leaves underfoot is a fall treat - try to take in the fall colors from the lookout point at the top of Chamberlin Mt, a 45 minute hike you can start from the front door!

Serene and scenic

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us rented the house while on a foliage vacation. This was the perfect house for us. Plenty of room and very comfortable. Off the beaten path it was a very quiet retreat. The scenery was spectacular! The trees were in full color and the view from the deck was breathtaking. We enjoyed our stay very much. House was clean and well stocked for our needs. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Happy times!

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of ten friends, had a great time staying at this place, which in addition to a beautiful view on the Connecticut river, has access to a community sand beach with plenty of beach chairs and kayaks. The house is very clean and well maintained. We were able to seat ten people at the dinner table and celebrated the last days of summer eating quality meat prepared on the outdoor grill. Unfortunately, we had only booked for two nights...

Best vacation property I've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my family and I have stayed at this lovely house. It is so perfect for us -- 4 adults and 2 children. We all enjoyed swimming, boating, tennis, hiking, cooking, eating, fishing, reading, talking, and just generally relaxing at Liz's house. The area is beautiful, the view is amazing, the river is a source of tranquility and fun. Unlike most rental houses, the kitchen, though small, is very well-equipped. We love it!!

Absolutely perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven spent four nights at this lovely vacation home and our only complaint was it wasn't enough time to enjoy everything it had to offer! Our 82 year old Dad loved relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view. The grandkids (ages 7 & 9) had a blast fishing and the nearby beach and clubhouse entertained them for hours. At night we marveled at the stars and lightning bugs and after sleeping soundly we all woke up to the peaceful sounds of birds. Everyone had plenty of space and the kitchen was incredibly well equipped with everything we needed to make meals and snacks. (Stock up at the Shaw's in Littleton, NH) On the one day it rained we all played board games and the kids found Calvin & Hobbes books in the children's room so everyone was relaxed and cozy. Liz was a wonderful host in answering emails prior to our visit and available to answer questions via phone. When it was time to leave the entire family only needed to ask her one question, "is it too early to book for next year?"

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect. This was our second time visiting in three years. The house has plenty of space and you absolutely can't beat the privacy of the home. The yard is perfect for kids and there is access to a community beach and clubhouse. The fishing is great in the area as well.

All in all a spectacular place for vacation that is reasonably priced and Liz is fantastic to work with!
