Recent Vermont reviews

  • Room for all

    "We stayed in this generously spacious house and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The owners are extremely helpful and prompt in all matters. The kitchen is enormous and very well laid out for large gatherings. The only issue we encountered was deciding which bedroom to sleep in! Dorset and neighboring Manchester are lovely towns to be explored while staying in the comforts of this charming Vermont home."

  • Ludlow house

    "The house was in an excellent location. It was situated one minute from the town of Ludlow and 5 minutes from the Okemo ski area. The house is surrounded by a lovely wooded area and there was quite a bit of privacy from any surrounding neighbors. The house was well maintained and very clean and well- equipped when we arrived. The structure of the home was attractive and really felt like a true ski area house, however the décor needs updating. Although the furniture was adequate, it was not particularly attractive and appeared quite dated. The master suite was quite comfortable and the mattresses in the master suite and in the bedroom with the twin beds were comfortable, The mattresses on the 4 bunk beds were quite hard and uncomfortable and we needed to pad them with blankets for our adult kids to sleep on them. The bunk bed mattresses are better suited to younger children. It was very convenient to have a full washer and dryer in the house. We needed to contact the owners once during our stay with a question about the fireplace and they were very responsive to our inquiry. I would recommend this house to a family with younger children, rather than adult children. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the house and with the maintenance of the house. The only recommendation that I would make is to update the décor, to make this lovely home more attractive."

  • Beyond Awesome!

    "When warm, gracious and welcoming hosts, lovely views, antique- without- being-overbearing appointed accommodations with breathing room for all, ease of exploration, and price come together... you have gold. This property and the hosts, Marsha and Dave, are gold. Our only place to stay when in the area!!!!"

  • Pictures Don't Do This Property Justice

    "This is a beautiful home - everything is clean, new and convenient. You can feel the love that went into decorating and building this home. It's an excellent rental property and the owners are great to work with. Further, there is room to sleep more than 8 - there is an extra living area upstairs and extra fold-out beds. the only think I knocked a star off for, was that it's a little bit of a drive from the mountain and Stowe (takes about 30 minutes to get to the mountain - about 15 minutes to get into main part of town). But we would definitely rent again."
