  • Wonderful weekend in Vermont

    "We returned to this wonderful house in the hills for a weekend’s skiing, and once again were really impressed by the cleanliness of the house and attention to detail shown by the owners. The small written instructions around the house cater for every eventuality, including how to light the log fire. There were holiday lights, garlands and wreaths scattered around and we felt really cozy as we sat watching Holiday Inn on the big TV screen. We tried a local restaurant (The Worthy Inn) in Woodstock, as recommended, and the food and beers were excellent. Well worth a visit, and Woodstock town looked beautiful in the snow. Once again, we were lucky to have fantastic skiing conditions – two feet of powder snow twenty minutes away at Killington - and it was a pleasure to come back to such a warm and inviting home at the end of each day, thank you."

  • Everything I thought it would be....and more

    "I stayed at this cozy little cabin in October. Ron was a great host. The cabin was exactly like the pictures show. Its remote, yet close to the General Store or a short drive to the next town. I loved my vacation, and this little slice of heaven so very much! Thank you for allowing me to stay in your cabin, and I hope to see you again soon! Happy Holidays :)"

  • Great rental right on the shuttle route!

    "My husband and I took our 11 and 13 year old skiing and stayed at this house. The house was very cozy and warm. The living room has a comfortable sectional so we could all stretch out after a long day of skiing in front of the flat screen. The house has a large ample kitchen open to the family room. The upstairs had two nice size bedrooms. The beds were comfortable and the back bedroom had sounds of the babbling brook behind which was very soothing. Overall the house was in very good condition. It looks as though it was recently painted and the bathroom upstairs look newly renovated. The house was spotlessly clean. The very best feature of all is that the shuttle goes to the front door and is like the first drop off at the end of the day. The shuttle passes at least every half hour. Only ski on ski off could surpass the convenience. We had a great stay and my kids asked when we could go to the house again. The owners were great and so easy to deal with and we will definitely be back."
