                                                          Perfect Thanksgiving in a Beautiful Home

                                                          Sarah G.New York, NY

                                                          This house is extraordinary and perfect for large groups. We were 11 and fit very comfortably. The house is so huge! It also has so many unique features and it lovingly appointed. The beds were extremely comfortable, and there is every modern luxury. We loved hanging out in the "tavern" with the big fireplace to play chess and poker. We also loved what we dubbed the "ballroom" with the dance floor and wraparound windows. The dining room table was perfect for our large party. We had a very memorable Thanksgiving and plan on returning to the very special Plantation House!

                                                          Great space for a large group!

                                                          Barbara C.

                                                          We had a group of 10 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of space for everyone and beautiful views. We had a great day at the mountain zip lining, mountain biking and coastering, went for some lovely walks and enjoyed the ability to fit all of us around one big dining room table.

                                                          We loved it

                                                          Barbara S.

                                                          The Plantation House was a beautiful, incredibly spacious home with a gorgeous

                                                          view and an extremely helpful host family.

                                                          We had a great time!

                                                          Cousins Bike Ride

                                                          Bob D.

                                                          This house was perfect for our group of cousins to get together for a weekend. Large bedrooms , clean bathrooms and a great kitchen area. At night you can sit out on the back deck and enjoy watching deer out in the meadow. Sue was very easy to contact and work with through the entire process. I would recommend any large group to stay and enjoy this house.

                                                          Great Find!

                                                          Pat G.

                                                          What a beautiful, well cared for property! It was immaculate, tastefully decorated, and spacious. We were here with our children, their spouses, and our grandchildren on the occasion of a family wedding. We had more than enough room for the ten of us to enjoy one another or sneak off to read and relax. Despite questionable weather, we managed to take advantage of mountain biking, a mountain coaster, and a rope course. We spent a delightful 1.5 hours at Mass MOCA. The proximity of these activities were possible while attending all of the wedding functions.

                                                          12 is the Magic number!

                                                          Catherine S.

                                                          If you have 12 people in your group and need a place to stay, look no further! The time that I spent in this house with my friends and family was nothing less than magical! The house is big enough for everyone to have space but also has its own peaceful sense of intimacy about it.

                                                          The joy we had when we gathered around the dining room table is a treasured memory. I am so thankful that we stayed here.
