We took our 3 children (4, 10 and 12) for a weekend getaway to see the fall leaves for the first time (we live in Texas where you don't get nearly as many fall colors). I wasn't quite sure what to expect, because many of our vacations are in more busy, big cities. But this was such a great experience, we've already booked it again for next year. First the house is absolutely beautiful. It is homey and comfortable with updated bathrooms and of course, an amazing kitchen. The property is perfect for a family - we brought a soccer ball to kick around the yard, but the house came stocked with board games, jigsaw puzzles, and little toys that our 4 year old delighted in finding. The hosts are the some of the most gracious of any HomeAway owners that I've ever met, and communication was always easy. But let me tell you how gracious - when we arrived, there was a cookbook for us to take home and a large bottle of the most delicious maple syrup I've ever tasted - so good we ordered more when we got home. The next morning, as we made breakfast, we had a knock on the door and someone delivered a fresh berry pie and a box of cookies from a nearby bakery. I mean, it doesn't get better. The beds were comfy, the house had plenty of towels (also a welcome thing not always found in rental properties). The house was spacious - we were a family of 5, but there could have been a second family of 5 sleeping comfortably with us. We drove into nearby Dorset and Manchester and then went the other direction the next day, but we enjoyed Dorset and Manchester the most. There were quaint restaurants and bookstores and the trees were just unbelievably gorgeous. We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace nightly and hot chocolate. It was the most relaxing vacation we've had in a long time and I am thrilled to be coming back. 10 thumbs up!
