                                                                      Absolutely perfect!

                                                                      I am writting this with a heavy heart because today is the last day of our week long family reunion at this farm. Our group of 15 included 8 children. Everyone will carry home lifetime memories from tractor rides, swimming holes, camp fires, zip lining, farm animals, hikes, amazing locavore dining and much much more. The farmhouse itself is perfect for hosting a large group. The remodled kitchen is a cooks dream with professional kitchen appliances (GE Monogram) with every need at hand. The views are stunning. Look no further for the perfect vacation home.

                                                                      Pastoral paradise


                                                                      Absolutely stunning, historic property. The views, environment and experience are classic Vermont. We have stayed at this home both in the summer and winter and each offers excellent proximity and opportunity to enjoy all that the MRV has to offer. Our children love running from the tennis court, to the pond - which is excellent for swimming. The home itself, is charming and the den / bar area is a particular draw with its large stone fireplace. As mentioned the kitchen has been updated with new appliances as well- yet still has the farmhouse feel we love. We have rented many homes over the past few years, and what makes the stay here stand apart from others, is the kindness and ease of renting from the owners. They are incredibly helpful and accommodating and should you need anything at all respond right away. We can't say enough about this truly special home.

                                                                      Great Setting for an Executive Retreat

                                                                      QE INCChicago, IL

                                                                      Pete and Hilary’s house was recommended by Janis Cooper of EQnimity for our executive leadership retreat. The property worked perfect for our group of eight people with great sleeping accommodations and multiple indoor/outdoor spaces to suit everyone’s needs. The working farm setting has a variety of livestock, including unique Scottish Highland cattle plus a clear view of Sugarbush Ski Resort directly across the valley. The house was comfortably furnished and the updated kitchen was well stocked with plenty of space to serve our guests. Pete and Hilary provided great support in helping us get things set up. An overall great experience and we look forward to returning next year.

                                                                      Cons- bad indoor air quality, old stained shag carpeting, kitchen has barely usable old electric range and an oven that was left with a greasy pan inside. Animal hair in house. Not for allergy sufferers.

                                                                      Everyone has difficult renters! Kitchen has been fully remodeled as of April 2015 with all new appliances, lighting and counters. There are no allergens in the house - we've had it checked, although we do use Jo Malone diffusers. We are certainly willing to remove them, or do anything else we can, to accommodate our guests!

                                                                      Great for families!

                                                                      De nadaBoston, MA

                                                                      I came to Pete and Hilary's house with a young infant, and this couldn't have been a better set up! We had plenty of space to spread out, but more importantly it was well appointed. From the highchair to the pack-n-play, they'd thought of everything! Hilary even let the kids feed the chickens and ride the tractor. What a great trip for everyone!
