Had an absolutely splendid time at this cozy cabin in Manchester. My wife and I particularly enjoyed taking advantages of many Equinox attractions while not paying an Equinox rate - never mind how much more spacious it was than staying in a hotel! We particularly enjoyed the easy access to all of the hiking trails on Mt Equinox. The pond just up the road set against a gorgeous mountain backdrop was enough in itself to make the trip a success. Additionally, we found a great path just down the road through the woods that took us directly to the Equinox outdoor lounge. We enjoyed a copious amount of cocktails throughout the day and evening as we watched the sun set behind the mountain and the outdoor gas fire pit heat up the night. It was so nice being able to casually walk home without worrying about a tax or Ubers - which can be hard to come by in VT. Furthermore, there were a number of other quality restaurants we could walk to, such as the Copper Grouse at the Taconic Hotel and Mulligan's - what seemed to be a semi-local favorite pub. We ended one evening sitting on Adirondack chairs on the lawn, beverage and cigar (for myself) in hand, while the fire pit was blazing as we watch the stars light up the sky over the eastern mountain range. The cottage is adorable, spotless, and the owner, Bob, could not have been more helpful whenever we had a question/concern. Our escape from Manhattan was much needed, and once we arrived we did not get in the car again until our departure. The value here makes too much sense not to take advantage of it year after year. Definitely hoping to return again!
Cottage bliss!! Just loved staying in this well maintained spotless 2 bed room getaway. Updated kitchen and bath with heated floors that we loved waking up to on a cool crisp morning. No need for a car, you can walk to local restaurants, pubs and shopping or the Equinox Hotel to be pampered with a spa treatment. Go for a hike on the well marked trails with gorgeous panoramic views. Can not say enough about the accommodations, price can't be beat compared to the local hotels, a winner! The owner could not be more helpful, will definitely go back.
Whether you call it a cozy cottage or a ski chalet, this home's location is perfect! We strolled to and from the Equinox Resort for dinner and drinks. We enjoyed a 5 mile hike and soaked up the scenic views. The cottage itself is 2 stories with a comfortably sized living area on the first level with heated floors and nicely renovated Kitchen and Bath. There are 2 BRs upstairs. The cottage offers great value. Local hotels and inns are significantly more expensive. It's just a short drive to all of the outlets in the village. There are great restaurants and pubs nearby that the owner shared with us. He was very knowledgeable and responsive. We intend to return with friends once or twice during the winter months and probably next August when we can drive to Saratoga for thoroughbred racing. Can't say enough about this experience...
We just returned from a lovely few days at this adorable cottage. The property is located within walking distance to the Equinox Hotel where we enjoyed dinner and spa treatments. Perfect location for hiking Mount Equinox (just outside the front door) and a nice walk to shopping and local restaurants.
The cottage is very well maintained. Two bedrooms on the second floor and a living/dining room, kitchen and bath on the first floor. Lovely yard with mountain views. The kitchen and bathroom are new and spotless. The heated floors in the bathroom and kitchen were a pleasant surprise in the morning.
The local hotels charge twice the price of this cottage just for a room, so this place more than fit our budget. The owner was pleasant and very helpful with directions and suggestions for local dining. We will definitely be back.
When we arrived, I opened the freezer for ice and there was a large dead moth in the ice cube tray. The chandelier over the dining room table had cobwebs on it. When I went looking for a blanket for the pullout couch there was none in sight. When I opened the attic closet I found a large comforter thrown in a pile on the dusty, dirty floor. The bedroom was absolutely tiny, couldn't even open a suitcase in it and when I stood up I banged my head on the ceiling. The staircase was very steep and unsafe, as it had no railing at the top where you walked from the hall down the stairs. The TV in the family room was old and tiny, less than 20 inches across, so small that the several people seated in the room all had to sit on one sofa in order to view the program.The front and back doors had no curtains or shades, leaving the person sleeping on the pullout in the family room feeling very exposed. The coup de grace, for me, however, was when I went to make coffee the next morning and there was disgusting old coffee in the coffeemaker. In addition, the bathroom had neither soap ( even hotels provide soap) nor a cup to use. The molded shower floor was extremely slippery & should have had a rubber mat for safety. My prior experiences with VRBO were much more positive than this. This rental was expensive, uncomfortable, unclean, and unsatisfactory. My family left a full day before our rental ended due to our dissatisfaction with the accommodations. Forewarned is forearmed. I wish I had more accurate information before I rented.
The cottage is a lovely, charming abode and its central location can't be beat! We could walk to the Equinox hotel, shops or simply sit outside and enjoy the verdant yard. It's very relaxing and tastefully decorated. I've stayed here before and will do so again!
