A perfectly beautiful stay in a lovely Vermont home

  • 5 of 5

My family spent four days in this beautiful home through the weekend of our daughter's wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the accomodations! The owner was welcoming and immediately responsive to any questions or particular needs we expressed. The house is handsome, well appointed and maintained, sunny and set on an exquisitely landscaped property with wonderful views. We were completely comfortable and only wish we were able to stay longer!

Conveniently located near the highway and easily accessible to both Waterbury and Stowe, possibilities for activities in the area are limitless. In any season this is a perfect place from which to enjoy all Vermont offers.

We hope to return in the future when we will give ourselves more time for exploring the well maintained trails that wind through the property... A beautiful place to stay and a friendly, communicative and responsive owner to work with! Thank you, Susan!

A wonderful oasis in Waterbury

  • 5 of 5

From making our reservation to locking the door as we left for the last time, this was the best experience I have had with a VRBO owner and property! The home is large with plenty of space to spread out, yet wonderful sitting areas to spend time together as well. The weather did not cooperate for much outdoor exploring, but our brief initial walk around the property yielded fabulous views and great gathering places outdoors.

We plan on returning to this home over the years that our son is at Norwich, it is an amazing vacation home!

Great Location and Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Prime Fall Season. The location of the house is great! Less than 40mins to Downtown Burlington, Less than 20 mins to Downtown Stowe, and 5 mins to Downtown Waterbury. The owners we wonderful and efficient to deal with for the rental transaction. The house is awesome. Very comfortable! Plenty of places to relax. The basement was great for the 3 kids we had to play. Had a nice fire in the outside fire pit and sat around and watch the sun go down! The property is wonderful, the kids played on the swing set all weekend and loved it. We walked the trails around the property. We will plan another trip someday and stay at this place. Thanks for everything!!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home to stay in and perfect for the family gathering we had. It was very clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. There is a wonderful patio in the back overlooking the gardens with a gorgeous view of the mountains in the background. The home is tucked away yet close to everything we needed. Look forward to enjoying this home again.

Even better than everything we expected

  • 5 of 5

I coach a high school soccer team, and every summer we take our returning varsity players on a bonding trip. It's not easy finding a place that sleeps 12 or 13 -- but this was perfect. The house is warm and welcoming, with lots of different areas to interact but spacious enough so that it never felt crowded. There is every amenity imaginable, in a gorgeous setting. The cookout in the backyard overlooking the mountains was a real highlight. We kayaked on the nearby reservoir, did a trail run on a nearby mountain, enjoyed the very friendly town of Waterbury, and went to Burlington and Colchester for a ropes course and paintball. We could not have asked for more, and the owners are very eager to work with. To mix sports metaphors, our soccer team hit a grand slam with this property.

Great property for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying in this house. Everything was clean and neat. Bedrooms were comfortable and house was spacious. Waterbury is very convenient to Stowe, Burlington and Montpelier. The grounds were well landscaped and the multiple decks and seating areas gave us lots of options for morning coffee and evening wine time. We plan on renting again next year.
