  • perfect for our needs

    "Very cute and charming cottage with history. I loved the historical information on the schoolhouse, since I grew up in Brownsville."

  • Great week of skiing

    "My wife, 2 kids and I stayed at this house for the Christmas week to enjoy the skiing at nearby Okemo and Killington - both about 30-40min away. We could not have been happier and more comfortable! First and foremost, the house is beautiful. While the pictures on this page are nice they don't compare to the real thing - plenty of space for the 4 of us, great views of mountains, newly renovated, comfy living room with fireplace (perfect after skiing), very high valted ceiling - felt like a chalet in the Swiss mountains. We were happily surprised to find a lot of treats/holiday decor upon arrival. Lastly, Carolyn and Chris are really great people - very accommodating, available and with lots of great ideas, tips, ski advice, etc. - We were very happy and will be coming back."

  • Perfect Autumn at High Shelter Farm

    "High Shelter Farm is the epitome of perfection. In addition, Grace, the host, is the personification of elegance. Since the family resides on the premises, nothing is wanting & questions are answered when asked. All this, and more, is there just for you. Clearly, this 270-acre paradise is the finest property we have yet to rent, regardless of location or price. If you’re looking for privacy, peace and solitude, this is the place. If you want a vacation property nearby to major resorts, look no further. If you’re looking for awesome scenic views from inside or outside the premises, this is it. If you want a winter wonderland, we would believe that you’d find it here. Randy, Grace’s husband, told us that we hit peak-week for autumn foliage. If it can get any better than we experienced, we can’t imagine where that could possibly be. We took so many gorgeous photos just traversing the ½ mile driveway that it took over 30 minutes just to make it up to the house. Another ½ hour melted away as we drove from the house back to the highway, snap, snap, snapping all the while. When hiking on well-marked trails, or coming and going, we were always treated to antics of Tess & Liza, beautiful, young & playful farm pups that never seemed to run out of bubbly energy. Ranch-raised apples were plentiful to feed Molly & Summer, the appreciative donkeys that always brayed when we were spotted. Nearby ducks, chickens, and sheep added to the ambiance along with fresh eggs, a king-size bed with an excellent mattress, large bathroom with 2 sinks, BBQ grill on a private patio, internet access, & fresh flowers. Oh, we were invited to & did partake of the many herbs, fresh each day, for our salads. Large-scale maps, lists of things to see and do were right at hand. While motoring to explore the surrounding countryside & mountains, we were greeted by Vermont beauty and hospitality everywhere we went. But we were constantly beckoned back early each day to enjoy all that High Shelter offered. What could be better?"
