  • Secluded Vermont Cabin

    "Even before we arrived at the cabin, the owner was most responsive in answering my questions which is why I chose this cabin for our vacation. As soon as I walked in, I felt right a home as the photos accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. The property was clean but some trimming of the greenery facing the road could have been trimmed so that we had a better view of the lake. The description is that it is secluded, which to some extent it is, but it is also adjacent to Scenic Route 100, so there could be a lot of car and motorcycle noise during the day. However, the location was most convenient as it afforded us access to many other parts of Vermont to explore and to hike. The biggest town, Ludlow, with shopping and restaurants, was about 15 minutes away. Everything we needed for a week's stay in a vacation cottage was provided. The cabin had a dock but it had gotten damaged in the July 4th rains just before our stay, making it unusable. The owner was generous enough to give us a discount on our rental fee for the week, which was unexpected. Should we return to Vermont for a vacation, we would certainly consider staying here again."

  • 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."

  • Nice stay

    "Thanks for an enjoyable ski vacation. House was pleasantly more beautiful, comfortable and well kept than the pictures show. Excellent communication. Two minor things were that the home was freezing when we arrived and that we couldn't get the brand new coffee maker to work even with the owner's prompt responses to our complaints. Hopefully it'll work for the next guests. Lovely home. Would recommend to others and we will keep in mind the next time we go to Okemo."

  • Family Bonding Weekend

    "My Family and I have been vacationing on Columbus Day weekend in this part of Vermont for the last 25 years. This year we had to find a new property, using VRBO before, I started searching the site. To make a long story short, I kept coming back to this house. We are so glad we did! I would recommend this house to all looking for a home full of Luxury, comfort and warmth, all rolled into one. From the furniture, upscaled kitchen, bedding, linens, hot tub, sauna, game room and the magnificent Fireplace. We couldn't ask for anything more. Nick, the owner and I shared many e-mails, he answered any and all questions. Nick even called me as I was traveling back to Connecticut the day of our arrival to check in with me and to let me know the house was ready for my family. He, and his wife Camille left great information on the house, and Things To Do for those who don't know the area. With everyone's busy life it was a great place to come together, forget about life and get caught up with the family. Again, I would highly recommend this property, in fact I have already booked it for next year!"
