                        This is the second time our family of 5 has spent New Year's Eve in this lovely house. The listing can not possibly describe the breath-taking scenery that surrounds it... it is absolutely pristine and spectacular. The backyard is the Green Mountain National Forest and outdoor opportunities are out your backdoor. Most of our days were spent skiing (cross country at Blueberry Hill or downhill at Middlebury Snow Bowl). We relaxed in the evenings in the cozy living room with a fire and family games. We are smitten with the area and the location / setting of this special house, and we love the fact that it has not been over-improved with trendy things. The authenticity is charming, and given that we were on vacation, none of us minded washing dishes! Not even my 14 year old! Brandon is a very quaint Vermont town with everything you need. We certainly look forward to returning.

                        no satellite photo can truly tell you what a sweeping look you have uphill to the east. if you walk up that hill you have an unspoiled look back at 4 rolling peaks. the roomy kitchen opens to the comfy screened in porch which has a stone-tiled floor making a nice transition to the outside. the layout of the house gives each bedroom its own unique corner. a very settled soulful house. the location is also super if you are interested in trails and swimming spots. you can get around fine without dipping into the valley.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, romantic getaway, pet owners, families with young children, adventure seekers, girls getaway.

                        This home served our needs in the small town of Goshen Vermont. My husband and I were in the area for a wedding with two small children and my mother. We needed enough bedrooms and a kitchen, which the local bed and breakfasts could not provide. By the end of the weekend we could smile at our rental but when we first arrived we were not very impressed. An instruction packet that was sent to us after we signed the contract and just a couple of weeks before our arrival details the many quirks this house as including pests and a foul sewage smell that emanates in the living room at all times. Had we read this prior to signing the contract we may not have elected to stay there. We did see mice in the kitchen, and we were unable to sit in the living room or watch tv due to the musty smell and the smell of what I think was the septic system. There is no cell service or Internet but there is a convenient house phone. The property was beautiful, the home has great potential but needs some TLC form the owners It has low water pressure, temperamental toilets, loose faucets, musty upholstery and bedspreads, push button electrical switches so probably very old wiring. The house is quite remote on a dirt road, if you're just looking for a place to sleep and enjoy the quiet and scenery - then it's good, but if cleanliness and creature comforts are important to you, this might not be the place for you. Approximately 10 minutes from Brandon VT

                        Owner response: We have replaced the management for this property as the visitors experience was not acceptable. We have offered them a refund. In addition, it should be noted that in six years, this is the only negative review. We hope in the future, any guest will contact us immediately if an issue arises while at the property. Our visitor information sheet lists both a rental manager and a local handyman with phone numbers so guests may immediately have any issue corrected.

                        Our family so enjoyed the beautiful home and property- it was truly a home away from home and provided us with everything we needed for a relaxing and fun vacation.
