Guestbook comments from the owner

Rina... You have a beautiful house. Our entire family enjoyed the stay at your comfortable and inviting home. Everything was very clean, wonderfully decorated, and well thought out. The kids played ping pong and watched TV as the adults cooked and talked by the fire. Thanks for allowing us to rent your home. Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to do it again soon.

Great family spot

  • 5 of 5

We brought my 95 year old mom, and 7 family members aged 23-72. Everyone found a cozy place to sleep, plenty of space to get away from the crowd, and wonderful communal spaces. My mom could watch the birds and also enjoy the action in the kitchen from her wheelchair in the light filled living room. The main floor suited her perfectly, with only one step into the house or on to the deck. She could not get down to the water or the downstairs portion of the house, but never felt left out of the action.

Lake Pauline is fairly small, but we loved that there were no motor boats to contend with when we swam or canoed. Ludlow is 6 minutes away, so provisioning was easy...and after we realized that Maple Creemees were a three minute walk, well, lets just say we ate a lot of ice cream.

Rina responded quickly when we had a question. Her home is very well equiped and taken care of. Do chwck with her if you are bringing a handicapped person to make sure it fits that person's particular needs.

We would comeback in a heartbeat!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

There were people in our group and the feeeling was unanimous, this is the ideal ski house for those wishing to go to Okemo. Plenty of room and all the extra touches that made it feel like we were in our own home. I can highly recommend this home and hope to be back next season.

"We want to live here forever"

  • 5 of 5

That's what my kids said when we were leaving. "We want to live here forever.'" So great. Lovely home, great experience, owner was helpful, loved every detail of the home, and I would love to go back. Highly recommend it. We live in Florida so going to Vermont in February was intense but so worth it. There is a hill next to the house (I'm assuming it's part of the driveway) and it was covered in snow. We spent more time going down that hill than at the resport. I'm glad we did the resort since it was our first time ever BUT did NOT need to. All the fun we needed was at the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ernesto. You were a pleasure to have and I'm so glad your stay was great. I appreciate how well you took care of the house and glad the sleds were put to use on our sledding hill. You are welcome to return anytime. Thank you!

Beautiful summer home on a quiet lake great owner

  • 5 of 5

Along with a few friends, our grown daughter and her boyfriend we spent the week starting August 14 in your home on Lake Pauline. We had a terrific time and really enjoyed being in the house which is so comfortably and attractively furnished and appointed.

We especially appreciated the gift of wine and coffee you provided and the other many courtesies you and your staff provided for us. We have rented homes in the Berkshires and Vermont a number of times over the last 10 years but have not found anyone who goes to such lengths to make their guests feel so welcome. We really appreciated those touches.

And the fishing for Bass in Lake Pauline was pretty good.

So thanks and best regards,

Dee-Ann and David Fox

Owner's Response: Thank you Dee-Ann and David. I am so glad you appreciated my home. I strive to make everyone's vacation as seamless and comfortable as possible. The house is also my second home and sharing it with other families has been a joyful experience. I hope you visit us again soon. Thank you, Rina

Beautiful house, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a summer weekend here and had a great time. The house is beautifully maintained and decorated, and very spacious. The kitchen has everything you need, and the barbecue right on the porch is great (we got a lot of use out of it). We spent a lot of time using the kayak and canoes on the lake. The owner, Rina, has obviously taken great care of the place, and was very helpful via email. I would highly recommend this place to anyone with a large family (or multiple families) looking to spend some time in nature! We certainly hope to come back!
