Very charming, cozy, private home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this charming home. The property was nice and private and had everything we needed. There was more than enough room for the both of us and our 2 dogs. Mike was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. We went to both Okemo and Killington during our stay, just a short drive. We had a wonderful relaxing vacation and will definitely be back!

A Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic and was both affordable and cozy! Standing almost completely alone, the house was very private with no interruptions. There was plenty of wood stocked for the wood stoves and the household was overall a clean environment. Being only twenty minutes from Shaw's and Okemo, the house is easily accessible to popular vacation day trips but still resides in a quiet town. My friends and I had a blast and I would highly recommend the property.

Cozy Vermont Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was cozy with a nice kitchen. The queen bed was very comfortable. Food supplies were available including awesome Vermont beer ! The drive to Okemo Mt. is very picturesque . The owner communicated well with us.

The Country Girl Diner on our way back home was top notch . Best corned beef hash ever and real maple syrup on excellent french toast .
