Our family stayed at Brigitte's house during the coldest days of Vermont in 2015. So cold that the ski mountains were closed. We were so happy in this charming house which kept us warm and together. The kitchen is fully functioning and looks out to the dining room. The master bedroom was large quite luxurious with the four-poster bed. There's one more bedroom which is very cozy and an open area with a mattress so it worked out perfectly for my two kids. The house is also filled with artifacts from around the world and gives it lots of personality. Brigitte is a very responsive owner and goes to great lengths to ensure a positive experience for her renters. We would come back in a heartbeat.
My 2 kids and I stayed at this wonderful spot during memorial day. The house was spotless, quiet and of course had the best view ever. Right on the Battenkill... the way life should be.
We stayed in this house with my parents and enjoyed it very much. It is well laid out, is light and uplifting and in a great location with regard to Arlington, VT. It is right on the Battenkill River. We could bike ride into Arlington, Kayak many miles of the river and fly fish adjacent to the property. Although on 313, traffic sounds did not detract from the experience. We have stayed in 3 other houses in VT over the past 8 years and if available, we would be returning to this one next year. A word about the Battenkill. It has the reputation of being one of the most difficult fly fishing rivers in the world and that reputation is well deserved. However, the owner recommended Tom Goodman a fly fishing guide with Battenkill Anglers who has fished the river for 40 years as a guide and I hired him. I would highly recommend anyone planning on fly fishing this river to Tom. He helped unlock mysteries of the Battenkill for me that I have not, in 8 years been able to do on my own. Again, we will go right back to this house and to Tom next year if both are available.
My wife and I, our baby, and my mom had an outstanding week at this charming home. The location cannot be topped. As a fly-fisherman I enjoyed good fishing right out back. My wife enjoyed sipping a glass of wine in a comfortable chair by the river each evening while I cast for wily brown trout. Walking distance to charming Arlington village. Easy driving to Manchester and its many shops and restaurants. A week was not enough time to even scratch the surface of all this area has to offer. The house itself is comfortable and charming. Plenty of room to spread out when you need some time to yourself (I personally loved the book-lined study for quiet reading). The spacious master bedroom was an oasis. The eclectic decor throughout is fun and stylish. The big expanse of green grass out the door leading down to the river is beautiful. We couldn't have been happier with our week.
We totally fell in love with this cosy Vermont home that is full of charm and character. We were lucky to have good weather and could enjoy breakfasts on the porch or by the stream. Arlington is a short walk away and is surrounded by gorgeous areas, between beautiful, historic Bennington and Manchester. There walked and hiked all around the area, towards covered bridges and lakes, and loved it all. We visited many places in the fall, but no other place was quite like this house in Arlington. It really felt like home. It was quiet, intimate, furnished with taste and practical intentions, very comfortable and close to a town that had everything we needed.
This house was perfect for our family, with awesome skiing at Bromley only about 20 minutes away and great shopping and activities in nearby Manchester. Although situated on a main road, you would never know it with the beautiful view of the Battenkill River from most of the windows in the house. We curled up next to the vintage wood stove every night, which provided a nice atmosphere and lots of warmth for board games and movies in the family room. The kitchen is great for making meals and having a glass of wine after skiing. Overall, we had a really nice family getaway at this quaint little home.
