  • Wonderful!!

    "A lovely home with every perk thought of ahead of time! We spent our fourth vacation there and are already planning our fifth. The home owners are responsive to any questions and the home is clean and so comfortable. Sit by the fire, soak in the hot tub, throw something good on the grill, watch any one of hundreds of movies to choose from or sit on the deck with wine and look at the millions of stars while thinking about taking to the slopes or riding through lovely towns nearby. What more could you want?"

  • Excellent Time in Vermont!

    "Just wanted to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed our stay at your house. We had a wonderful time! You provided everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable, Your house is well decorated and truly a "Vermont style" house...it is also larger than the pictures would indicate. There were 8 of us and no one felt hemmed in. We all had plenty of room to move around. Kyacking was a hit as was the ground floor tv that let my son watch the World Cup. I would recommend this house without reservation."

  • AMAZING HOME

    "The house was perfect for a Thanksgiving vacation getaway. It was very warm and comfortable. The pictures of the house were great, but seeing in person was breathtaking. I would recommend this home to anyone needing to relax."

A quiet stroll in the woods on a carpet of red and gold makes you feel like you've escaped into a dream world for a while.
