  • Retirement Trip

    "Vermont is beautiful in the fall. The whole state seems to be full of charming small towns. We have never visited a cleaner or more friendly place. One day we drove to Center Harbor NH, the site of Keepsake Quilting (I'm a quilter). The difference in the two places was astonishing. Stay in Vermont! We both loved the Shelburn Museum and getting to see Lake Champlain. We loved southern VT and mainly explored the small towns around Jamica. The house was just as lovely as promised, loved the gas fireplace stove, the kitchen well equipped, the tub lovely. My husband painted, took a million pictures, and we both RELAXED. Loved it, hated to leave."

  • Girls Weekend

    "Best "girls weekend" yet! My very best girlfriends/longtime friends and I have been getting together every Memorial Day weekend for over twenty years. We try to choose a place that will accommodate 8+/- people, have at least 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The Lodge provided us with all of that and more. It is spacious and quiet with spectacular views. The owners were wonderful and very gracious hosts offering helpful advice on places to visit, to eat, to shop and by suggesting fun/interesting activities. The ducks and chickens were entertaining to watch as we sipped coffee on the porch. The kayaking was great, as was sunning ourselves on the very private dock. The pool was inviting and the grounds well kept. This property is for everyone and I am already looking into a return visit with my family. Thank you for a pleasant stay."

  • Charming Cabin for our Winter-Escape

    "We spent New Year's week at this wonderful cabin to escape city life for awhile. The cabin is set on a beautiful wooded hillside next to a waterfall and looks out over a pristine pond and a very pretty rural landscape. There are two other cabins adjacent to the property but far enough away that we felt secluded with plenty of privacy. The cabin itself is warm, spacious, and well-decorated with tasteful furnishings. A really nice simple design. The bed linens were very soft. I cook a lot and I was so happy that the kitchen was appointed with everything I needed to prepare our meals. I especially appreciated all of the cooking utensils, measuring cups, and serving dishes. The cabin is heated by a gas fireplace which is set up on a thermostat. We were cozy and warm despite low temps outside. We also lit fires in the cast iron wood stove in the evenings. (Heaven.) There is a dvd player and folks might want to bring some movies to watch, but we were pretty happy just reading by the fire in the evenings. We went for long hikes every day - there are plenty of good hills/mountains to explore right near the cabin. We also popped into Woodstock for a dinner one night. It is a really great downtown. We decided not to ski while we were there but we could have easily done so at Suicide 6 or Killington. (There wasn't much snow cover the week we were there.) We enjoyed the hiking a lot - I think that we were sometimes trespassing on the edges of the Twin Farms Inn property nearby but no one seemed to mind. The owners of the cabin were great at answering questions promptly before we headed up there. Very nice to deal with. We liked it so much that we plan to go up again in the Spring or Summer and bring our two little girls. (The one thing that I would note is that you might actually need 4-wheel drive if you plan to go in the winter and you get hit with a snow storm. Parts of the road and driveway seem like they would be pretty steep if they got snow or ice-covered.)"

  • Best rental ever!

    "I've rented places in Vermont before, but none compare to this house. It's very clean and uncluttered, but still is fully equipped with everything you'd need. Our favorites being the grill, fire pit, comfy couches. Oh and the back deck is the spot for sunsets. Lots of stars at night and deer in the morning. The house is on a large open lot that feels private without being too secluded. The town of Chester is close by with lots of fun places to eat like, Smokin Bowls and Stone Pizza. We also found the Springfield Coop to be very affordable. Dan couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I felt more like I was visiting a friend's house, than at a rental. Only problem is one week there wasn't nearly long enough. Can't wait to go back!"
