The most comfortable rental experience

  • 5 of 5

Superb location, impressive professional kitchen and fully stocked pantry, more than enough sleeping room for our large group, a few minutes' drive to Sugarbush. Bryant is an awesome host! He's super friendly and really cares about making his guests' experience pleasant and memorable. I would recommend this to anyone, and I would come back myself whenever I return to Sugarbush!

terrible ,we were supposed to stay for 2 days we left after 5 hours , house was a mess ,fridge was full of the owners old slimy foods ,the place smelled like it wasn't cleaned thoroughly in 20 years ,no privacy at all,when i booked this house the owner told me that he lived in a side apartment and that we would have complete privacy when we got there we had anything but privacy he and his friend were sitting on our deck walking through the house(that we rented) and then he notified me 3 hours after we arrived that we would be sharing the ,kitchen ,deck and bathroom with the owners,there were 3 other doorways that could not be locked to secure our privacy and keep them out ,we left because the house was a mess and we did not feel safe ,this was my worst rental experience ever

Owner's Response: Very happy to see this group of thugs leave. Their original inquiry said they wanted to have a nature filled weekend.Next email they said they had a skeet shooting machine and if it would be ok to skeet shoot.I wrote back and said that it would be ok as we have allowed skeet shooting here in the past.They arrived early Friday afternoon,went out to our field and started shooting.They were not skeet shooting they were shooting very loud high caliber pistols at targets for hours until I had to ask them to stop, as neighbors were complaining.I told them they could skeet shoot, not target shoot with high caliber pistols.They said they would only skeet shoot starting the next day. Told them there are shooting clubs in the area and they asked for information on that. I researched got the information and went to back door to tell them.I never just walked through their rental.I stepped in to relay information on local gun clubs.I never said we shared kitchen.Listing states that renters have use of downstairs bathroom( private back apartment bathroom we allow quests to use that connects to main part of house.).They never said anything to us about any problems.We did not know that they had left until the next day.I think it is very ironic that the reviewer states they did not feel safe because they could not lock themselves in, having an arsenal of weapons with them.We were the ones who did not feel safe after the person who rented our house asked me if I knew if he could purchase guns here in Vermont with a New York license. This is a wonderful place to enjoy a nature filled weekend, apparently that's not what they wanted.
