Great winter weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, cozy, and comfortable for hanging out after days of adventuring outside. Kitchen was well stocked and easy to use for full meal preps. Close to cute Vermont towns!

Great place for a ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Katharine's place for a quick ski trip to Stratton mountain. Although the mountain was about 45 minutes away, the house was a still a perfect accommodation for our group of 7. The kitchen was fully stocked with equipment needed to make a great dinner, the house was clean and roomy, and Katharine had left easy to understand instructions on how to operate everything in the house. Overall a wonderful stay!

Simple And all we needed :)

  • 5 of 5

Ideal for our family of four kids, our cousins came down from Okemo and agreed that the school house was awesome ! After a full day of skiing, we appreciated being able to return to our cozy home, play board games start a fire and feel cozy !

Adorable, picturesque and perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cabin and was in a perfect location. The area around the cabin was beautiful and became simply magical with the snowfall. The cabin had everything we needed, was clean and well heated. The one negative, if I had to pick one, was the lack of window dressings made for a less private feeling than I was necessarily comfortable with. Otherwise, I'd say everything was absolutely perfect! We'd definitely stay there again, but will bring a good robe next time! :)
