Cozy, cute house!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at this house. Its location is perfect; very quiet, surrounded by the mountain, yet close enough to the sweet town of Windham. Having a nice pond in its back yard, we really liked the house!

Spacious and serene

  • 5 of 5

I don't think the pictures do justice to how very attractive and spacious this home is. We had a wonderful time here with our family and there was enough space for everyone. It's an open floor plan which makes it conducive to socializing, while at the same time, there are two patio areas where one can go for quiet time. The pond is large enough to go kayaking in and the property is well kept and peaceful. This was exactly what we were looking for.

I couldn't wait to write this review. We stayed here for a weekend and we had a blast, waking up to the beautiful scenery this property offers is absolutely breathtaking, the house is very comfortable, clean, with all the amenities necessary, when they say "just bring toiletries and food" really that's really all you need. My daughter 4 and nephew 8 years old had so much fun playing on the grounds, we had fun in the pond with the kayaks and barbecuing in the back yard. I was concerned when we first arrived that there was no AC, however opening all the windows we didn't need it, the fresh mountain air was just perfect. Appreciate that the owner Kip was readily available for anything we needed. We definitely will be coming back and we recommend it. We had a family of ten and were very comfortable, grandparents enjoyed it very much and the owner was very nice to provide me with specific information of places we wanted to visit. Over all this is a great place to spend time with your family.

Great springtime getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for Memorial weekend 2016 and we had an awesome experience. The house is big and very welcoming. We had 8 adults and 6 small kids in our group, and we didn't even use all the bedrooms. The house had everything we need (kitchen utensils, linens, etc). But we mostly loved the outdoors... The property is very big, and felt safe letting the kids playing around. The private pond was the highlight, as we all spent lot of time swimming and paddling around (the kayaks were provided by the owner). Between the firepit by the lake, the shade under some trees, the big upstairs deck with the grill, it all made for a perfect weekend.
