River House Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five with three boys ages 12, 10, and 8 that have vacationed in Vermont for a week the past few years to "unplug" from our busy lifestyle. This year we decided to make it two weeks and found the perfect house to do it in. Everything about our stay was absolutely wonderful, from the communication with Susan to building our own custom "spas" in the river. There are too many items to mention them all, but here a few of the highlights:

1) The description of river front heaven could not be more accurate. You have your own private play area for kids and adults. The water ranges from a couple inches to about couple feet in the main opening. The kids and their father transformed into engineers moving rocks here and there and just enjoying the cool mountain water. It provided hours upon hours of entertainment.

2) The sound of the flowing water invokes such a sense of tranquility! We left the doors and windows open at night to hear the river and we slept like babies.

3) There is a large open yard perfect for games. Susan so thoughtfully stocked the house with activities to augment those we brought ourselves. The boys played badmitton, volley ball, soccer, football, frisbee, catch with our dog, caught butterflies and crickets, and endless other games. When they got hot, they ran to the river to cool off. Then, back to the games!

4) There is a fire pit just next to the river where we spent almost every night making smores, telling stories, playing games and totally relaxing. I miss it already.

5) There is the coolest swimming hole on the property as well. There the water was about four feet deep (depends on the rains) and perfect for the kids to jump in and get carried by the waterflow. Even the dog got into the mix. This is also where our boys became geologists, since the rocks here are amazing. They scoured the grounds, finding everything from quartz to pirite to fools gold (and of course granite).

6) The house is not a long drive from the town of Bradford, where you can find a local coffee shop (great breakfast burritos), ice cream shops, a local book store, a convenience store (they sell worms), and a really cool waterfall. Alexanders restaurant was also very good.

The Wrights Mountain hikes are great and only a couple miles from the house. Check out Halls Lake where you can fish from the shore and catch Perch galore. Too many other awesome hikes to mention!

All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend!

Everyone loved it....again!

  • 5 of 5

Second time up here and just as awesome as we remembered. Nothing but wide open space for the dogs and kids to play. Far enough away for peace and quiet but close enough to get to everything if need be. Loved hanging out in the river all day, making smores at night in the fire pit, and the Fairlee Drive In Theatre. Just an absolutely great place to get away with the family. We are planning to go there a third time so that should say something!

Location is fantastic

  • 3 of 5

Great spot if you don't mind driving to see some of the tourist attractions. House was comfortable with pleasant surroundings. The swimming hole was an attraction for two of our days. Great location! I do need to share that the screen doors could use a bit of repair as we entertained lots of insects our first night there. We learned our lesson for the rest of the stay. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Rustic paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Really cool rustic house with wood burning stove for heating that did an amazing job. Beautiful grounds with a river that has a swimming hole.

There was a bottle of wine awaiting us on arrival and marshmallows and chocolate to use for smoors in the outside fire pit. A very warm welcome that was much appreciated. Loved our stay.
