Maggie purchased this house in 2005
We rented this home for a long weekend in Vermont. 3 familes including 7 children stayed comfortably at this lovely home. The big fireplace in the kitchen made that room a gathering spot for the adults. There was a large dining room big enough for our needs and the living room with its large comfortable cough and fireplace was a great place for the kids to play the Wii (we brought ours from home). We had all the non crib sleeping babies stay in the large bedroom on the second floor and it was a great set up for them.
The house is very charming. The location was good for us as well. Coming from Northern NJ we made the trip in just around 3 hours. The town of Manchester was enjoyable and picturesque, and Stratton and Bromly were short drives away.
We would definitely return for another trip in the future.
I have stayed here six times & love it. The house is roomy, warm & comfortable.It has a lovely view of the mountains from the long wall of windows in the dining room, kitchen & deck. The kitchen ,with its charm and large roaring fireplace and living room, with its own fireplace and large screen TV, will provide all the comfort and convenience you could need. While I have no little ones, there is an abundance of toys, games, books and puzzles for their enjoyment. There is also a bunk room offering plenty of room for them. I just love it!
I have stayed at this lovely home many times and it's great in any season. On our most recent trip, the early October leaves were bursting with color - breathtaking sight. The home is very comfortable, clean, nicely decorated and has everything you'll need during your stay. For yummy food, try Up For Breakfast and dinner at Ye Olde Tavern in Manchester - for fine dining, we like Mistral's. Take a ride to Weston (Vermont Country Store and Christmas Shoppe) or Woodstock, if you have the time. Love this place! - hope to return again next year.
From the moment you pull your car down the driveway, you know you've arrived at a special place. It has all the charm and amenities you would want in a vacation spot. We brought our three young children and had a wonderful long weekend of skiing, sledding, shopping, and relaxing with the fireplaces roaring. We especially loved the fireplace in the kitchen. What's better than drinking your morning coffee in front of the fire, or winding down after a long day on the slopes. The house is in a great location also! It's very close to Bromley and other ski areas and the outlet shopping is right in town. There are a number of great restaurants and memorable breakfast spots! We hope to return to this wonderful house again this winter.
I found this place such a beautiful place of, you might say a mix of yesterday and today. The kitchen was one of my favorite spots. The large old world fireplace was a treasure, along with the cobblestone type floor. Yet the kitchen had all the modern amenities as you would expect in a new home.
The view from the windows or back deck were so beautiful, you just wanted to sit and gaze and drink it all in. Whether you were all adults or a family with children, you could enjoy this spacious home in and out. You had plenty of room for the kids to have plenty of space of their own, along with space for adults to have your own space with a fire going in the living room, or kitchen if making coffee or meals, etc.
Close to shopping in Manchester, found wonderful shops including discount shops of name brand and designer clothes. Plenty of restaurants to select from as well, something for everyone.
All in all a delightful get-away. You will want to stay longer, and return again and again.
This is a very charming home with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is conveniently located yet still private with acres of land. The views are spectacular. We were able to go skiing one day and sledding the next - right in the back yard! We would definitely stay here again.
