Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us staying over the weekend at your humble home. I really impress with all the antiques collected in this home, the typewriter and the phone really caught my eyes, took a picture on both of them. We had a lot of group activities, did not use the TV at all. Basement however, kind of scary haha. Overall it is a pleasant stay and may think we will have an opportunity returning here in the future.

Never had a more relaxing and engaging time with family. The atmosphere and antique laden furnishing lead to great family memories and conversation. Great proximity to ski areas as well. Especially for the younger family members

It was all and MORE than expected. It was like stepping back into my childhood or my parents childhood. It was spacious. We had our son and wife and 2 year old with us (who just happened to turn 2 at the Victorian house). She loved the freedom of all the "paths" through the house and having front and rear stairs. Our first night, my wife and I arrived alone and I admit at night, it was spooky. My wife even asked me to accompany her to the bathroom since we stayed in the bedroom farthest from the bathroom. After our son's arrival, the place warmed up and felt very comfortable (I think the ghosts of past tenants were VERY friendly). The host was very accomodating and our damage deposit was refunded promptly. I will recommend staying there and tasting a bit of the past. My only suggestion for improvement would be a few more plastic containers for leftovers. Thank you so much for letting us stay.

It's a really nice and clean house

  • 5 of 5

We had a New Year's Eve here, and it's really a nice house for ten people. Especially the kitchen is super clean and bid, we love it. The living room is also big enough for ten people hang out there. It is definitely a wonderful house for a vacation. Recommend!!!
