Our home lies nestled among some of Vermont's most beautiful mountains. We are located 30 minutes from Burlington, Stowe, and Montpelier. We are also close great restaurants, excellent breweries, Ben & Jerry's, and many other wonderful attractions. We take great pride in providing our guests with a memorable and reliable experience.

We are located in wooded area bordering Camel’s Hump State park and Robbins Mountain wildlife management area. We have excellent hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing from our backyard and nearby.

About a half a mile from our house is Gillett pond, a 200-acre pond carved by glaciers millions of years ago. The pond is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors. It’s great for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, snowshoeing, skiing, ice skating, or just enjoying some fresh air and beautiful scenery. We have a canoe for guests to use.

About Lauren & Jeff

My wife and I, Lauren, currently live in Richmond, VT with our newly born daughter Abigail. We recently bought the house next door to make room for our growing family. My wife Lauren is a reading teacher and I'm a CPA. We are well established in our professions and are honest, reliable, responsive, and responsible. Lauren is an avid reader and likes working on picture projects and I enjoy home brewing and golfing. We enjoy all things outdoors, especially going for hikes from our back yard or canoeing in the pond just down the road. We are blessed to have found such a beautiful place to live and look forward to sharing it with our guests. Thank you for considering staying with us.

Lauren & Jeff purchased this house in 200

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was located perfectly for all of the plans we had for our vacation. The house was perfect for six adults - clean, modern and private. We will return!

Big Green With a Good Night's Sleep

  • 5 of 5

My daughter moved from here in Hillsdale NJ to Richmond VT about 3 years ago. We have been visiting her about 4 times per year since. Sometimes we are able to stay in her house and some times not. She has a new baby who turned 1 last month, so the party was the thing. Needing larger accommodations for our larger party (3 adults) we started our search by checking our stand-by places in Richmond. Graduations, weddings, and other springtime celebrations put quite a strain on housing availability there at this time of year. I thought of going to HomeAway in hopes of finding some unusual listings that might still be unbooked in March. Sure enough we found Jeff and Lauren's place, a beautiful, clean, up-to-date country home on a stunning property right across the Huntington river from my daughter's home.

For all our trips to Richmond, be had never used the route recommended by Jeff, It was direct, very beautiful and got us up there about 45 minutes sooner than our fastest other route.

The whole house is recently refreshed. The well water is clean and odorless. All of our needs were provided for and we had a great time. On the night before the big birthday party, we hosted a small dinner gathering at the house and had it catered by S. Burlington's Sugar Snap. We cleared the gathering with Jeff before setting it up and he graciously permitted our small get together (He also welcomed us on check-in day with a fresh batch of his own home-made chocolate chip cookies. Yum!) The dinner party was a smash hit and everyone had a great time.

I took a walk down to the pond one morning. Wow. Beautiful.

Because there was a lot of space in the house it made settling in and moving out very easy.

This is an absolute Gem. You get an authentic feel for 'Life in the Country' from staying here.

We will be looking for upcoming opportunities to return to this wonderful home for future visits to Richmond.

Thanks Jeff and Lauren!

wonder weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home nestled in the woods! We rented for the weekend to celebrate my daughter's graduation from UVM with our family. The location was ideal [not too far from Burlington] and Richmond is a quaint town with all that is needed. Jeff is very responsive and helpful. Wonderful weekend!!
