Beautiful Historic Vermont Home

  • 5 of 5

This home has a great first floor flow that has ample space for an extended family to spread out and enjoy. It is a historic home with charming original structures and updated modern conveniences. The master on the main floor was perfect for my husband, who struggles with stairs. The first floor has a half bathroom near the kitchen and a full bathroom, with a tub and a walk in shower, that is accessible from the master bedroom or the living room. There is also a dining room, family room and a screened back porch. The second floor has three bedrooms and a bathroom with a walk in shower. The grounds are lovely and include a private back patio that gets great sunshine, a large side yard and lots of flower beds.

The kitchen has great workspace and is well stocked with tools and housewares. We enjoyed cooking together or just gathering and chatting there.

The location is ideal for a quiet getaway in southern Vermont. There are many things to see or do within a 20 minute drive. The owner was very communicative and helpful. My extended adult family had a great vacation there. We did not need to use the heat and can not comment on cold weather comforts. We will come again soon.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this lovely Vermont home! A very quiet and peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

The Homeowners have outdone themselves and have made their vacation home comfortable and convenient. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. After a quick visit to the farmers market, which was wonderful, on Saturday morning in Londonderry, we were all set. The bedding and linens provided were very nice and there were plenty! The beds and furniture were comfortable with several comfy places to curl up and read a good book. We enjoyed the screened in porch for reading and relaxing. The views were beautiful and we loved the perennial gardens that surrounded the house! We enjoyed all the local restaurants, especially SoLo, a farm to table restaurant located in South Londonderry! The dining was exquisite! There is a stable nearby and we enjoyed watching the riders when they were out. We found several antique stores and an adorable quilt shop on our journey to Weston. The Vermont Country Store in Weston was a lot of fun! Make sure to try a Maple Cremee when you are there! We also enjoyed the village of Dorset the town square was not only scenic but adorable. We did a little shopping in Manchester which has all the conveniences that you would need. We had a wonderful time and hope to visit again!

Owners were very kind and prompt and answering all our questions.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for the family gathering place I'd hope it would be. Attended my daughter's wedding in the area and want a place where we could gather, relax, and recharge. Very accommodating and spacious home with all the amenities you need. Owners were fantastic from beginning to end. Would stay here again in a heartbeat

Exceeding Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Although the photos genuinely represent this home, they don't capture the peace and tranquility one experiences once in the home. It has a way of simultaneously feeling roomy and cozy~and despite the beautiful dining room, we found ourselves eating almost every meal in the kitchen with the small fireplace and drinking our coffee in the comfortable chairs. While on vacation, we typically look forward to wood-burning fireplaces, however, aside from in the kitchen, we found ourselves enjoying the sheer convenience of the gas fireplace in the family room. I could have spent every morning soaking in the antique claw-foot tub with the spa like hot water~ but then we would have missed walking around the property, shopping and just enjoying how beautiful Vermont is. The only additional amenity that we could have asked for is a small cable upgrade to access some of the networks with movies. Since my husband and I both work Monday through Saturday, we really look forward to relaxing with a movie or two while away on vacation. With that said, we would still be excited to stay again and recommend without reservation.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! House was clean and adorable! Our dogs absolutely loved the yard and wandering through the garden paths. The house is set close to the road compared to the pictures, but the side yard is so large that there was no fear of the dogs going near the road. We plan to come back in the future.

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for an extended weekend getaway. It is a lovely historic home with beautiful grounds and nice privacy. It is well situated within minutes of the local grocery store (Clarks IGA) and the charming town center with other dining options. The house is very spacious with a master BR on the first floor and other bedroom upstairs. The kitchen was well stocked for our cooking needs and had all the modern amenities. The highlight for us was the screened in porch area where we could relax and dine to our heart's content. We loved the general area for exploring especially with Lowell Lake basically next door. The flowers in the property were beautiful and we enjoyed walking around the yard with our dogs. The owners have done a nice job decorating to keep the integrity of this 1803 home. Also the owner Nancy was a pleasure to work with. It was so hard to leave this amazing place. We can't wait to come back again!
