Our impression on arriving: WOW!

  • 5 of 5

The house, a few miles from Waitsfield, was beautifully sited, large yard, ample deck, well-laid out floor-plan, excellent amenities. Surrounded by woods. One moose sighting on the edge of the trees. Really, a very nice home away from home. Owners: helpful, friendly and responsive! We've already recommended it to friends and plan to return. Nearby were hiking trails, fine restaurants, like the Hyde Away, and great shopping. It was quiet, not many houses up on the hillside. Whether it was glasses, or dishes, or cookware, it was ample! Even gates to put up for a pet or children. And, comfortable sofa and chairs, as well as good lighting! Being centrally located in Vermont, it's easy to take day trips to other areas like Stow or Burlington or Middlebury, and the famous Warren Store.

Great location and home

  • 5 of 5

David was great. From the quick response to my questions to making sure the heat was on prior to arrival. The house was perfect for me and my family, plenty of room for all the kids to include toys and games for the kids. Small hill for the kids to sled on and view of Sugarbush.

We rented the house over Columbus Day weekend with our 2 dogs. Comfortably sleeps 6, lots of room in the backyard for our dogs to run around. Perfect location to Waitsfield, Sugarbush, Stowe. Beautiful views. Owner was very responsive and flexible with our asks. I would definitely rent from them again! Thanks Dave!

Very accurate description of home and surrounds!

  • 4 of 5

It was a most pleasant week in the Green mountains enhanced by this neat home! Everything we needed for this get away was provided-EVERYTHING! We even had a beautiful bouquet of lilies that greeted us as we walked in. Having had fireplace always in our home \s for many years ,it was really great to build a roaring fire in the fireplace each evening which was quite easy with all the kindling and dry wood provided. It was indeed our Home away from home! And David was a great communicator and most responsive in getting arrangements made. Congrats on your home-keep it up!

Great location for relaxation and exploring!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on a quiet road in the mountains! Within 30 - 40 minutes of several other towns in each direction, such as Stowe, makes it a perfect location as a 'base camp' for the week. We also stayed in town a couple of days and I found hiking at Camel Hump Mountain (great view to NY). Also close enough to Fort Ticonderoga in order to make a day trip.

In Waitsfield; we found a couple of great local coffee shops to start the day; The Sweet Spot and Three Mountain Cafe. My wife and mother in-law spent a morning shopping in town as well. Lots of fresh produce can be found as well. On Saturday the center of town had a market with many local craftsman selling their products; had to try the 'Maple Soda' - great! You have to have lunch at The Mad Taco! For a casual dinner go to The Blue Stone and try the maple wings and for something more formal The Tucker Hill Inn.

If you are skier/snowboarder this is an ideal location. I believe I counted 3 ski areas within 15 - 20 minutes of the house and I know Stowe was a little further north.

Mountain biking is big in this area as well and I found great hiking at Camel Hump Mountain and the Green Mountains are close by as well.

The house itself was cozy and just right for our family. I have a 7 month and 2 year old. The gates were perfect to baby proof the stairs and my daughter loved the available toys, movies and books which was great because we didn't need to pack a lot to keep her occupied. The house was clean and organized. The beds were very comfortable, a big deal for my wife. We found the cookware and dishes in the kitchen to make meals.

The yard was great as well! My dog ran until she was exhausted. Loved laying in the sun on the deck and sat in the yard as I enjoyed listening to the breeze. We also enjoyed smores around the fire pit.

Looking forward to finding time to get away again soon and will certainly be considering staying here again.

The Perfect basecamp in Mad River Valley!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented Dave's house in Waitsfield and we love it. From the location on one of the Valley's most beautiful roads, to the spotlessness of the house, and the peaceful quiet of the area, it's the perfect place to kick back and enjoy all that Vermont and the Valley have to offer. The house is cozy and comfortable, great for a couple, or families/friends with a whole second living area and bedroom on the lower level that give you enough space to spread out and relax.

Dave is great to deal with, always prompt in communication and concerned that you have what you need to make your stay perfect.

Mad River Valley in the summer is a dream, here are a few of our favorite spots: Waitsfield Farmers Market on Saturdays, lounging, hiking, fishing or tubing along the River and of course, Mad Taco for the best mexican around, Mad River Taste for the inside scoop on all things beer and cheese in VT. So central, it's an easy drive to Stowe, Burlington, the Northeast Kingdom and of course Waterbury for a stop at Pro Pig or boating at the Waterbury Reservoir.

All we can say is: book early and often, and have a great time!
