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 .

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Went for a long weekend w/ another couple and had a great relaxing weekend. The house is warm and cozy w/ everything you need to stay and many restaurants close by. Loved The Country Girl Diner for Breakfast. Took a 20 minute ride to Okemo. No skiing yet and we're not skiers anyway, but the ride was beautiful for sight seeing. We basically stayed in by a warm fire, watched some football and played some Jenga (that was there). We found the beds very comfortable and slept great. I would highly recommend this cozy little get away to anyone.

The perfect vacation rental - clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this rental for a long weekend and it was perfect! So cozy and felt right at home. You're in close distance from the town center & have great privacy as well. The backyard is adorable; surrounded by a large, well- kept garden, along with a patio table & chair set - perfect for a cookout, or just a relaxing night sitting outside :) Highly recommend!
