More Than 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to have 5 glorious weeks this summer in this adorable and delightful cottage. First of all, the cottage is the perfect place for a summer or winter vacation for 4 people. Each of the bathrooms is en suite with large showers and even heated floors for winter use. The upstairs master b.r. is so special, it was an “experience” each time we walked up the spiral staircase to it; and to top it off, there is a Juliet balcony there; so when you open the door you have a perfect view of the mountains. The cottage has top-of-the-line appliances and a gas stove [a treat for us]. The beds were comfortable and the sheets soft [we are sheet snobs]. Because the living, dining area and kitchen are one large room, no one will miss out on the fun or the crackling fire in the fireplace! There is a huge back porch, overlooking the pool, the woods and the mountains beyond. It has a table seating 6, and a BBQ grill, so you can grill and enjoy your dinner outside too. Jay Peak is a few minutes up the mountain, offering more than just a water park. Take the tram up the mountain to the top and even have dinner up there on Friday nights. You are also only about 35 minutes from Canada, so remember your passports, as you will be treating yourself to a little bit of France in any of the border towns [like Sutton]. The owners of the cottage, Laurie and Les are THE perfect landlords and can answer any questions you may have. I would not hesitate to recommend On the Rocks to anyone, as you will not be disappointed. This French-style cottage is sheer heaven in the mountains of Vermont.

Great for getting away from everything

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and has all the conveniences. Beautiful kitchen and bathrooms. Large tv with dish for many channels. The spiral staircase is very cool and 2nd floor is very private. A little hard to get suitcase up though. Good trails at Anderson farm in walking distance.

Great vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great vacation at "On the Rocks" cottage. We enjoyed fishing on the Trout river, the indoor waterpark at Jay Peak, boating on Lake Champlain, hikes on the nearby trails and the kids had a great time in the pool! Its close proximity to Montreal made for an easy day trip. Les and Laurie were very accommodating regarding our requests. We highly recommend "On the Rocks" cottage and plan to visit again soon.

Perfect for our family! Safe and super fun for kids

  • 5 of 5

The minute our feet touched the stone steps we could feel the stress melting away. We have stayed in quite a few VRBO's and this one hands down is the best yet. Every detail was immaculate, and there is a lot of detail, from the handmade chandeliers to the waterfall faucet stone basin bathroom sink. The girls absolutely loved the European feel and super comfortable beds. The boys liked the spiral staircase and the incredible pristine pool steps away from the back door. We enjoyed great family dinners outside on the huge deck while listening to the relaxing sounds of nature in the backyard. In the evenings it was so quiet and the air was so clean and the rooms so comfortable all of us slept great. We enjoyed fun trips to the Shelburne Museum and other local attractions, but we mostly stayed at the cottage it was so relaxing. Les and Laurie were gracious hosts and every detail was cared for before our arrival. No one wanted to leave when it was time to go home!
