Some reviews from former guests:
"I think "Fabulous Inviting Vermont Vacation Home" said it all and we couldn't agree more. Well maintained blend of the old and the new. Conveniently located for people coming from different directions and close to all the ski areas/attractions/restaurants/etc. Excellent communications with the owner---quick and clear. Definitely a do again."
"This was my 2nd trip to this wonderful, warm, inviting former B&B.; It reminds me of the old days when I would look forward ro visiting grandmas warm loving home. The house is huge, very comfortably furnished, has a large inviting fireplace, open LR, DR Kitchen are so everyone can be together but also has a seperate studyon the far side of the staicase and 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor for those that need a nap or quiet time...plenty of room to spread out highly recommended."
"Charming, former Bed & Breakfast....absolutely immaculate, comfy beds etc....so charming you may be tempted to just relax , & enjoy the ambiance. Great location."
"My family, adult children/ friends and family dog stayed at this lovely home MLK weekend 2011 and had a fabulous time. As soon as I opened the door I knew we had selected the right place. We were greeted with freshly baked sweet bread, a nicely scented candle,and a bottle of red wine . The moment I walked in I felt like I had come home. This home, built in the 1800’s is very comfortable and welcoming. It has the perfect balance of old time charm with the wide plank hardwood floors, exposed beam ceilings and a humungous wood burning stove, as well as modern amenities such as a nicely stocked kitchen, very comfortable beds with warm bedding, abundant linens and modern baths. The house has an wide open first floor with a brick-floor kitchen, very large wooden dining table, a spacious living area with plenty of sofas, chairs, rockers, TV and that wonderful fireplace. Also has a cozy library around the comer and 4 nice sized bedrooms all located on the 2nd floor- nice that the BR’s are separate for those that needed quiet time after a day of skiing. Even though I brought groceries there were things I forgot and thankfully these items were stocked in the kitchen. I had asked the owner if they had other- than- down bedding due to allergies and they were very responsive to our needs; all beds were made up with cozy hypoallergenic linens. The owners are located on the premises but you would never know it. They are in another “house/addition” that is separated by a large barn style garage. It was nice having them there as my husband can attest. He managed to lock himself out of the house at 7:30AM and all the knocking and door bell ringing didn’t wake any of us (too much skiing and good food the day before) Luckily he was able to contact the owners who let him back him… Good thing because it was about 10 degrees outside. This house is ideally located a short drive to several major ski areas as well the shopping outlets in Manchester. Restaurants and grocery shopping are conveniently close by. We had a great time skiing during the day, coming home to a roaring fire, watching TV, playing board games and visiting local shops & restaurants. Everything was perfect, cozy, comfortable, warm. We hated to leave. And we look forward to a return visit. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice get-away. Cindy and family
