Very steep staircase -(open on one side)-from upstairs bedrooms to downstairs (bathroom), not recommended for small toddlers etc. No air conditioning, but most Vermonters do not feel the need, as nights are cool and we believe in open windows and fresh air. There are Fans in every room and brand new windows with good screens. Only 7 miles or easy 10 minutes to Vermont Summer Festival- Horse Show.
This cottage is part of Battenkill Farm, originally a Morgan horse farm long ago. Battenkill Farm has been owned by the Perkins family and the Orvis Company for over 40 years. All the other buildings on the farm are private residences. The cottage is known as Brook Trout Cottage and is just across the road from the famous Battenkill River. Permission to Fly fish on the River may be granted from the Orvis Company Store located just 2 or so miles away.
Lovely country setting for walking or bicycling. Hiking up to the Hildene Estate located down the road and up the hill.
We felt right at home in this cute little cottage. It has a well equipped kitchen plus washer and dryer which was so convenient after staying in hotels for two weeks. The only bathroom is on the first floor which wasn't a problem for us, but it is good to note for anyone unsteady on stairs at night. We would definitely choose to stay in this cottage on any return trips to Manchester, VT.
The cottage is clean and well-supplied, with charming touches throughout. The owner has accurately described the stair situation, so be sure it will work for you. It is close to Manchester, but not a walk away. The mountains across the road are a pretty view and sometimes, the cows stroll by. We have been coming to this area for many a year, and it is as beautiful as ever!
Our rental at the cottage was wonderful. We found the property very attractive, well-maintained, beautifully furnished and clean and comfortable. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay.
Everything you need in a nice little package. Super clean and comfortable.
We were delighted with our stay in this cottage. It provided comfortable living and sleeping space for our family of five. The kitchen was well supplied with pots, pans, dishes, coffee maker, microwave and everything else needed for cooking and eating....no dishwasher. The living area had board games and books as well as tv for those cold Vermont evenings. And there was WiFi access as well. It is about 2.5 miles from town. We enjoyed the country setting, but some might prefer to be in town to walk around.
The well equipped eat in kitchen is good sized and works well for four people. Beds and chairs are comfortable. The view of the Green Mountains is tranquil and lets you know you are on vacation. Just look out for the drainage ditch by the driveway when you pull in the dark of night!
