Thank you for sharing Elysian Fields with us

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at Elysian Fields & were greeted by Jack the caretaker. Jack was very friendly and gave us a tour of the property. He assured us he was only a phone call away should we need him for anything.

It was one of the hottest weeks in July but was able to stay cool by enjoying our morning & evening swims in the crystal clear pool water. The A/C throughout the house kept us very comfortable.

We were 5 adults and this large home had more than enough room for all of us. The bedrooms were great & we all appreciated having our own bathrooms. My husband & I took the 1st floor master which was great for us as it is hard for me to climb stairs. Don’t worry about bringing reading materials as there were plenty of books and magazines that would keep you reading all week. Loved the antiques & the many paintings throughout the house.

We enjoyed grilling & eating on the enclosed porch. Most days we had a nice breeze come thru the porch. The property is beautiful - we enjoyed listening to the birds singing & hear the bull frogs calling out to each other. An egret landed in the pond one day. We watched the wild turkeys & their chicks walking in the grassy fields daily. We even saw 4 deer - 2 doe & 2 babies running thru the fields early one morning. If you like to see nature up close and lots of quiet time – you’ll definitely find it here.

We’ve rented from HomeAway for many years & have never been disappointed with the houses we rented. It was a fun & relaxing week for us & we never needed to call the caretaker for anything.

Owner's Response: Carols review is fine with us-!!-I might just mention that we are PET FRIENDLY--and Her two dogs were welcome. Our Wolfie was very agreeable to Her dogs using his tie-outs, front and rear of the house. The large screened porch, on the North end of the home, mostly away from the sun, is great not only for the Guests, but also the pets!!----In Carols email to us, She indicated: "I'm sure we'll be back another time & would probably like to stay in the Winter1"

A wonderful vist to Elysian Fields

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Elysian Fields was wonderful! The gentlemen who own this property made us feel like we were friends coming for a visit. The house was clean and neat and most welcoming and very comfortable. A lovely porch on the side of the kitchen provided a wonderful area for us to share our meals! The kitchen was well stocked (unlike many previous rentals) including a waffle iron! The pool and hot tub were delightful and a wonderful amenity for the few rainy moments we had while there. Our 5 grandchildren had a blast in the pool especially at the end of the day! The yard was neatly mowed and provided areas for the kids to run and toss a ball.........and then there was the pond to explore and find the many bullfrogs!

We were a lovely drive outside of Arlington VT and Manchester as well as Lake George, NY! I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to have time to relax and unwind. And the scenery was spectacular!

Elysian Fields

  • 5 of 5

For many years, we have spent most of our vacations renting houses. I don't remember a more comfortable, more well maintained, or more well appointed property. We had a fairly large group: 6 adults and 6 kids. All 3 couples had a room with a private bath, and there was still plenty of room for the kids. And the pool was wonderful.

The area, and the landscape around the house, were just beautiful.

We can't wait to go back..

Room for One and All

  • 5 of 5

Our college reunion group of eight experienced a fabulous stay at Elysian Fields. Each woman had her own beautifully decorated bedroom with t.v., good lighting for reading, and a full bath. Common areas were cozy and spacious, clean and chock full of amenities, such as t.v. plus catalog of dvds and videos, a fully-stocked kitchen, and indoor pool with jaccuzzi. The owners responded with care and were quite helpful, even leaving us a jar of honey produced in hives surrounding the house. Activities in the area kept us busy -- even a monastery with The Best Cheesecake!! The house is eclectic and kitschy, cozy and warm, and perfect for a family reunion, ski trip, or any occasion. We all think very fondly on our time at Elysian Fields and would recommend to anyone.
