"We stayed for several weeks at this lovely vacation home. Just as the caretaker promised it had a magical quality to it. Upon first arriving you will find a sweet farmhouse surrounded by green hills and fields, along the Green River. The house is spacious and comfortable, full of the artifacts of an interesting family life. The bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of linens, the sunny bathrooms have deep soak tubs, the living areas are lived-in in a good way, and the kitchen has absolutely everything you need for small family meals or feasts. We came to relax, spend time together as a family and with friends, and explore the quiet beauty of the area. No big attractions, no bling, no fancy restaurants, not much night life -- but great walks and bike rides, covered bridges, interesting historical explorations, fresh farm food at local markets, and most of all a quiet little river to play in. We took our young son to the river at least once a day to play on the rocks, swim, make leaf boats or hunt for salamanders. We went to bed listening to the running river and a chorus of crickets. The stars at night, oh my!! We biked to the covered bridge in Vermont at least twice and week and had a picnic before returning. The caretaker took care of every little thing that came up quickly and graciously. He is a wonderful source of information about many things! We explored the area towns with their beauty and arts, but our favorite days were spent reading in the house, doing yoga on the porch, playing by the river, grilling outside, and going to sleep to the wondrous night sounds."
