About Tim & Lois
We are empty-nesters now parenting 2 large dogs, Guinness and Baxter. It's hard to tell who loves the Green Mountains more ... for us, it's a way to get away from our hectic jobs and get outside (one of Tim's favorite terms). For Guinness and Baxter, well ... their lives aren't so hectic but they do love the freedom of getting outside and having the run of 7 acres and river access!
Tim & Lois purchased this House in 2017
Why Tim & Lois chose Rochester
We spent some time in Rochester for a 3-day family wedding in 2016 and fell in love with the area. Tim loved the hiking and long valley views, and Lois loved the charm of downtown Rochester (and a few of the easier hiking trails). It was a special place and time for our extended family and we felt a deep connection to the area. For Tim, it reminded him of his native Scotland. (Yes, he is wearing a kilt in the photo.) For Lois, it was a great opportunity to unplug and get off the grid!
What makes this House unique
What sold us first on Songbird Haven was the expansive post-and-beam great room. The river access and 7 acres of fields with meadow and mountain views was a bonus! The house was comfortable and spacious and reminded us of the many two-family vacations we took (often with Lois' sister) when all of our kids were little. Hotels didn't work so well with kids (and a dog or 2) in tow, but having a comfortable home where we could spread out, cook in on occasion, and just relax with the family was the perfect formula. We saw Songbird Haven as a place where we could share the multi-family / friend vacation tradition and build new memories!

What a great house!
This house has it all !
The house is huge ( we are 5 people and we only used the “main floor”).
The house is based directly on the river overlooking the forest and all this 5 min drive from the Near town.
The house is very well equipped and designed for leisure .
Will come again for sure
Great base for Fall foliage.
Spacious and well provisioned home. Just off Route 100. Loved the babbling brook and the fire pit. Definitely recommend.
A beautiful home .....
....In a gorgeous location! This home was absolutely lovely. Big room, beautifully decorated and yet very cozy. There was plenty of space and everybody was very happy with our accommodations. We were in town for a wedding and it could not have been more beautiful. I would highly recommend it!
Green Mountains are Great
Wonderful property in the Green Mountains and expansive views and recreational activities. The home is very well stocked, private and offers an exceptional location for outdoor (and indoor) activities.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful space for our friends and family. I would happily stay at Songbird Haven again.
There were three separate families getting together for our own little reunion on this trip. One of the families had two thirteen year old girls, and the remaining families were just Mom & Dad, and we were all traveling with our family dog. In total there were eight of us and three dogs.
The house was definitely large enough that we all had plenty of room, to have our own 'private' spaces, with the living room and main kitchen area being the central gathering spaces for everyone to catch up on old times. We loved the fact that the owners went out of their way to make sure everything was thought of in case you forgot your toothpaste, toothbrush, etc. Plenty of movies for the girls to watch to keep them entertained downstairs, when we weren't walking along the spacious property, or exploring the river. Nice large TV on the main floor, although we have no idea if it works, there was never a downtime to turn it on, lol.
Overall we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more, we were able to go on long walks, explore and enjoy good company, all in a beautiful setting.
Songbird Haven is in the heart of the Green Mountains. Visit the Rochester Ranger Station for up to date information on trails. Adventures await!
