  • One of a kind place!

    "My wife and I spent a week here in October. We did several day trips all over the area, but each time we pulled in the driveway we said, 'it just doesn't get any better than this". You can see for miles and not see another house in your view. Very peaceful and relaxing. Enjoyed eating the local produce from the farmers market. How can you capture in a photo or express with a few words the dynamic beauty and peacefulness of this place? You just have to experience it, and I hope we get to do it again."

  • Wonderful Cottage and Helpful Hosts

    "My husband and I just spent an extended ski vacation in Norma and Joe's comfortable, clean and thoughtfully furnished cottage. The description and pictures give a good idea of what is there. We hope to return next winter for another ski vacation. Norma and Joe were very hospitable. The refrigerator was stocked with eggs, milk, OJ and Coffee. And there was fresh fruit on the table. They were ready to offer suggestions about activities and lent us snowshoes one day for a walk on a nearby trail. They also kept us in baked "goodies" which we really enjoyed. I cooked every day and the kitchen is very well stocked. I always had the pot, pan or utensil I needed. And they provide flour, sugar, oil, vinegar, spices. It was so nice to be able to cook our meals. The internet signal was strong and we loved the DirectTV with the Tennis Channel. It was a real luxury for us. The cottage sits on a slight rise just off a town maintained, paved road. This is very important in Vermont during "mud season." And the crushed stone driveway was well-maintained. The bed was comfortable with lots of pillows and quilts. The bedrooms (and bath) have small built-in heaters which keep you toasty when the temperature gets below zero. There are plenty of carpets and throw rugs also. So bring your warm slippers and enjoy this lovely cottage."

  • charming vermont hideaway

    "Guest Book note 12/28/11 ~ "Anne- You were so helpful from the first phone call. Your cottage is great. My husband I have been coming up to Dorset since we met. His Aunt and cousin live up here and we love it. We've always stayed at their house but this Christmas it was full so I found your cottage. Well, I think you got us! I want to stay here every time from now on. We have 2 kids and this gave us the perfect space. Home Away from home. And you seem to know exactly what we needed. The house had everything and was super cozy and the mini xmas tree in the window was very sweet. Thank you and we'll probably be back soon. Much happiness in the new year!! ...""
