Great home base for skiing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights, and skied at three different areas. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed. There are several nice, local places to eat. We made good use of the kitchen, as well as enjoyed the local restaurant scene. It was nice to come home to a quiet neighborhood at night. Harvey was a very attentive and generous host. We hope to come back in the future!

Comfortable place for a small group

  • 4 of 5

This is our second year staying at this property with our small group for a ski trip. Harvey is very easy to work with starting with the reservation process to check-out. The house is well stocked with all the basic necessities. Harvey kindly provided coffee, milk, and o.j. The beds are comfortable and bedrooms are spacious. Harvey checked the hot tub daily, and was enjoyed by our group. Harvey genuinely cares about his guest's stay, and is available to assist as needed. We would stay at this property again. Thank you for a pleasant weekend.

Comfortable, clean, & convenient

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed an excellent family vacation at Harvey and Myriam's guesthouse. The property is located at the end of a small, quiet neighborhood and has lovely local views of the Mad River Valley. Even though our hosts were travelling abroad, they made sure that we had local contacts in the event of any difficulties (there were none). Harvey also went out of his way to periodically check-in with us via email to be certain that we were having a great stay. At 1600 square feet, the guesthouse is amazingly spacious with ample room for the 4 adults and 2 small children in our group. The house was very clean and comfortable. In addition, the house was well stocked with all the supplies one would need outside of food. If we visited the area for another family trip, we would certainly book this property again!
