What's not to love
It's always hard finding the "perfect" vacation home. Very happy with this house. The owner Dave is very thoughtful and truly cares about the people staying at his place. When you walk in there is nothing showy about this house it is set up to feel like home away from home. Very inviting home, you knew after a long day out you can just kick off your shoes and relax.
Each year instead of buying a bunch of needless gifts, we take our adult son and his family on a vacation. The house provided two living areas one upstairs and one down, perfect for that me time.
Nothing negative to say, why point out little meaningless things it's not a hotel it's a home someone has opened up to share for your enjoyment. David and Gretchen have a wonderful home and we all personally thank you for sharing it with us.
Loved Our Stay Here
Another couple and we stayed here for several days. The house was very comfortable and everything was as advertised on the web site. The kitchen was fully stocked with pans, plates, etc including both Keurig and regular coffee pots, blender and more. Linens were more plentiful as well as needed supplies like dishwasher liquid. The location was good and the pictures of the cabin were accurate.
The owner, Dave Franks, was really great. His communications were always timely and clear. During one evening we had a tree limb fall on the electrical supply line to the house and we lost all power. Since it is an all electric house (water, heat, etc) and cold we were concerned about staying the night. Dave came up, coordinate getting electrical service to the house (within an hour) and made a number of calls to local inns in case we had to stay somewhere else. He stayed with us until the electrical was restored. We discovered later the phone line and internet had been impacted by the tree falling and he arranged for service as soon as possible; it was repaired by noon the next day. He was a joy to have as the home owner.
Overall a great place to stay in the area - we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Fantastic clean, comfy attractive home in the beautiful mountains of Vermont.
Wow..what a wonderful home! We were greeted with fresh flowers on arrival and went on to discover a very clean house that was beautifully decorated with a great Vermont theme including a working stone fireplace. Our group of two couples had plenty of room inside and out plus all the comforts of home! We loved grilling on the back deck and enjoying the peace and quite of the mountains! It was truly a comfy, relaxing vacation and a big thanks goes to the owners!
Comfy home for a family in a great location for fun!
We are a family of 5 with kids ages 4-10. This home and location were absolutely ideal. Its so tastefully decorated and so thoughtfully filled that it feels more like you're staying as the guest of a good friend than just renting a "place." There were all of the necessities in the kitchen and baths, and plenty of extras like great books for kids and adults, puzzles, games, and toys. It was meticulously clean. We had a glorious time visiting the swimming holes, picking blueberries at Knoll Farm just a couple minutes away, taking a Ben and Jerry's tour, hiking and enjoying the stars around the campfire at night. They left a whole notebook full of information about the area, including maps and brochures! If you're looking for a quiet stay in a beautiful place, this is it. The only thing that was slightly different than we expected was the view. There's several beautiful places to enjoy the mountain view nearby, but with the trees in the late summer, we couldn't really see the mountains. In the winter I'm sure it's beautiful!
Wonderful place to stay, we'll be back!
We spent a delightful week in this beautifully presented cottage in Vermont. Gorgeous vase of flowers on arrival. Perfectly secluded location with quick and easy access to nearby Waitsfield. It was unbelievably relaxing to hang out on the deck or in the yard. Our two dogs had a phenomenal vacation too, we love VT in part for its dog-friendly attitude. Definitely hope to return next summer and possibly in the winter.
Rob & Family were a pleasure to have at our Vacation Home & glad they enjoyed their stay. We hope they can make it back. Regards, Dave BTW, MY wife says thnaks for leaving the place so tidy ! Dave & Gretchen
Great house, close to everything.
We had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend hiking and eating great food! This house is close to great hiking trails and all the stores and restaraunts. The house was extremely clean and comfortable. It feels a lot bigger then it looks from the outside. The owners have thought of everything. Well stocked kitchen, lots of info about the area, clear instructions on how everything in the house works. We hope to be back for hiking or skiing!
