Absolutely Stunning Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six decided to spend a week in VT and we were lucky enough to find this gem of a home. Though we were overly excited just from viewing the pictures and description here, when we arrived at the home we were blown away by the beauty and comfort afforded to us. When we walked in, it was so much more than what we had expected. This beautiful home was a dream come true for us all. The comfort, the peacefulness, the beauty, it was almost overwhelming at first. I could not pull myself away from the gorgeous view, especially since we came at the peak of autumn, with the fall colors in full force. This home is very conveniently located, only a short ride from Bromley, Magic Mt, and Okemo. It's also quite close to Manchester, with its outlet shopping and Chester with its quaint restaurants and shops.

We came with 2 children, and even though there was no TV, we found endless things to keep us occupied around the home. The large yard was a great place for the kids to run and play. Coming back in to the fireplace blazing, with plenty of seating for us all to relax around it, was a wonderful experience. With all the conveniences of home, including the full kitchen,

the laundry area, numerous bathrooms, the sauna, as well as the seemingly endless reading nooks & the privacy and quietness, who would ever want to stay at a hotel or inn.

We would go back in a heartbeat given the opportunity.

Some places we visited nearby:

Lowell Lake State Park for kayaking - Londonderry

Jake's Restaurant & Tavern - Londonderry

Up for Breakfast - Manchester

MacLaomainn's Scottish Pub - Chester

Gale Meadows Pond for kayaking - Winhall

Green Mountain Railroad for scenic train ride to Ludlow - Chester

Like a dream come true..

  • 5 of 5

6 of us decided to spend a week in VT, and we were lucky enough to find this gem of a home. Though we were overly excited just from viewing the pictures and description here on the website, when we arrived at the home we were blown away. When we walked in, it was so much more than what we had expected. This beautiful home was a dream come true for us all. The comfort, the peacefulness, the beauty, it was almost overwhelming at first. I could not pull myself away from the gorgeous view, especially since we came at the peak of autumn, with the fall colors in full force.

This home is very conveniently located, only a short ride from Bromley, Magic Mt, and Okemo. Also quite close to Manchester, with its outlet shopping, and Chester, with its quaint restaurants and shops. We came with 2 children, and even though there was no TV, we found endless things to keep us occupied around the home. The large yard was a great place for the kids to run and play.

With all the conveniences of home, including the full kitchen, the laundry area, numerous bathrooms, and also the sauna, and the seemingly endless reading nooks, the privacy and quietness, who would ever want to stay at a hotel or inn.

We spent some time kayaking at Lowell Lake, just a short distance from the home, and also Gale Meadows Pond, both of which had stunningly beautiful views, and a great experience in itself. Also the Green Mountain Scenic train ride leaves from Chester, only 15 minutes from the house, and was yet another great outing for our family.

I said numerous times during our vacation that this was the home of my dreams, and the experience will be something we will remember forever. There is no doubt that we will return back to the house on our next trip up north to VT, and I will be looking forward to that moment where I can walk out on the back porch with a cup of hot coffee in my hand, watching the sun rise over the beautiful mountain landscape, breathing in the cool fresh air, and enjoying the peace and quiet this home afforded us.

Highly recommend this lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this house the instant we walked in. It is much roomier and even more charming than in the pictures. We comfortably fit a couple, three young children and a grandparent. The backyard was great for sledding. The fireplaces were excellent. It was very comfortable and homey, and a great getaway. Loved all the books and games and decor.

The only advice I would give would be to have winter tires if you are coming in winter. The hill to the house is very steep and our minivan could not make it up in the fresh snow, though once the streets were sanded it was doable.
