The Wedding Weekend House

  • 5 of 5

We used Christopher's house in Wallingford as our "Wedding House" for a weekend. My daughter married the love of her life at the Wallingford Lodge and this house was perfect for the bride and groom, family, and friends to get ready for the wedding as well as an escape from the craziness of wedding setup. The house is conveniently located to restaurants and shops in Wallingford. The house is beautifully decorated, updated, meticulously clean with lots of room for relaxing with friends, playing pool, dipping your toes in the spring fed pool, cooking meals, you name it! Some of the groom's family also rented a house from Christopher and it was great to open the back gate to visit back and forth. The screened in porch provided extra living space and kept out the pesky Vermont bugs. The dog kennel in the basement was a hugh plus and Cedar June stayed cool and safe while we were out of the house. The only improvement I can think of is to have some grass within the fenced in area for the dog. Christopher was communicative and very flexible with our needs. I whole heartedly recommend this house to anyone spending some time in the area.

We absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Wallington was wonderful! The house is conveniently located near shops and is just a 25 minute drive from Okemo Mountain. The house is clean, organized, and spacious. There were 8 of us, (all adults,) who fit very comfortably with room to spare. We enjoyed playing pool and air hockey in the game room. We also enjoyed sitting outside by the fire. The house had all necessary amenities for cooking. The bedrooms had clean and comfortable bedding and the bathrooms were stocked with wash clothes, hand towels, and bath towels. Christopher was extremely accommodating and always available when needed. I can not say enough good things about our stay here! We will surely return!

Excellent stay for long ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at this house for a long ski weekend. The house was very comfortable and provided plenty of room for 7, and our dog. Everyone really enjoyed the game room for pool, air hockey and TV. The proximity to Okemo was ideal. The owner was very helpful, responsive and accommodating. We will definitely consider a return trip in the future.

Great Home in a Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few days on and around Thanksgiving here and had a great time. The home is a beautiful antique home with modern amenities and styling. Christopher was so helpful before and during the stay. So much attention to detail and all the things a guest would need to have a great experience. Great outdoor space with fire pit and seating; great rec room in back the teenagers claimed, to hangout and play air hockey, pool, and video games (brought their own PS4 and hooked to TV). Very nice kitchen area with a large table for our Thanksgiving dinner. Rutland 6 miles north and Manchester 19 miles south. Beautiful valley at the base of the Green Mountain range. If you want to experience Vermont, you can't go wrong here. Would go back!

Clean, well equipped, and friendly

  • 5 of 5

The house is kept very clean. It is right in the small town of Wallingford so you can walk to the local restaurants. Christopher works in the store next to the house and he was available for any questions, recommendations, etc. It is a very dog friendly house with a large screened in porch for lounging or a well set up back patio area for sitting around a fire, dining, relaxing. The pictures and description are true to form and has a very open feel. We will definitely rent this house again.

A great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful and very comfortable house. Christopher, the host, lived next door and was very personable and very knowledgeable about some of the local sights and places to visit. We spent the week at the. Vermont Summer Festival as well as swimming in Elfin lake and hiking.

The house was plenty big enough, had a beautiful back yard for relaxing around the fire and lots of space for relaxing in general.

We have two children and a dog and everyone loved their stay.

Will definitely be returning! Thank you Christopher for your wonderful hospitality!
