Charming home, great for group visits

  • 4 of 5

My group stayed in this home for a girl's ski weekend and had a wonderful time! The home was well appointed with plenty of linens and kitchen supplies for a group of 7 women. We all LOVED the decor and style of the home - the pictures do not do it justice! Chris had the fireplace on and a bottle of wine for us when we arrived which was a nice touch. We were about 40 minutes from Killington and 15 minutes from Rutland where there were many shops and restaurants and a few grocery stores. We didn't end up bringing our dog, but it was nice that the home was dog friendly (we weren't a huge fan of the dog enclosure in the basement however - seemed kind of like a doggy prison). Overall, we would definitely come back again and would recommend this home for people traveling in groups.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. I liked the part about the indoor dog kennel being like "a doggie prison." Many of our visiting guests bring multiple dogs so this climate controlled kennel is more like a room featuring a flat screen tv so they can watch Animal Planet while being kept safe and sound until their owners return. Large enough for a few dogs and with a full size 8ft ceiling. Thanks again

Perfect for multiple families w/ teens

  • 5 of 5

We were 9, including 6 teens plus a dog. The house is beautiful, spacious, well laid out and very comfortable. We cooked most of our meals in the modern kitchen, or on the grill outside, w/ plenty of seats all around.

The spring fed soaking tub got lots and lots of use. The fire pit was wonderful in the evening and the carriage house was a great spot for the kids. What a treat! Our dog loved to roam the yard and it was great to be able to walk her along beautiful roads. Very close to gorgeous White Rocks park, swimming holes and Elfin Lake.

Christopher is an excellent host, very knowledgeable about the area and attentive when any needs arose We hope to stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend this rental.

Wonderful place! Modern, comfortable, deluxe home in picturesque town

  • 5 of 5

Wow did we love this house! We rented it with another family, in total we were 4 adults with 2 kids. There was ample space and we would have been comfortable with even more people. Unlike most of what you can find in VT, it's fully renovated with nice modern furniture and it's also dog friendly. The layout was perfect for kids! The backyard is awesome with the little pool, picnic table, and porch. The downstairs is open floor plan so it's great for cooking and hanging out. The owner is so so nice and accommodating! He even took us to a river for gold panning and showed the kids how to do it. He couldn't have been nicer. The little beach at Elfin Lake (2 minute drive) was awesome because it has a nice shallow grade for little kids. It also has a nice sandy beach that kept everyone entertained for a whole afternoon. We've already rented this gem again for another weekend this summer. Love love love this place!
