Wonderful house for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

The location was amazing, a quiet street near a lovely, small town. The house was comfortable and very clean. We had a handful of things go wrong for us, but it really was just bad luck and bad timing, and the hosts handled it quickly, politely, and fairly. In the summertime, when we were there, the mosquitoes were a problem. But the house has a lovely screened in porch. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. So glad you enjoyed your vacation. Again, we are sorry for the inconveniences. Our new washer and dryer were delivered and my husband was able to fix the kitchen sink. Thank you for leaving our home in such great shape. Come again! Kathy

Very comfortable, bright, cheerful, well appointed family house !

  • 5 of 5

This home suited our needs perfectly. Six of us, 3 generations, (ages 1 1/2 to 71) had plenty of space and privacy. There were toys and a booster chair at the table left out for us as the owner knew we were bringing young grandchildren. We were close to everything we wanted to visit, yet had woods around us to explore and collect things. Loved the spring peepers in the ponds ! We appreciated the brochures left out on the dining room table---lots of Vermont information. Pool table in the basement gave the older ones a perfect evening activity, while young ones had space to roll around on the carpeted floor. Easy cleanup too before we left. Many thanks to the Badura family for welcoming us to their home. Can we come again ? !

Great Time in Bristol!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy's home was truly wonderful. It has all the amenities anyone could want or need in a beautiful and secluded area. Welcomed by a bottle of wine. The house is clean, warm, and incredibly unique. The views from the many windows are gorgeous, the kitchen has everything you would need to make any meal you can think of, this was a fantastic stay and I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Kathy!

A hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Private, secluded in the woods, well equipped, beds were all comfortable, home was cozy and a great layout. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Kathy was very helpful and accommodating. The grocery and pharmacy was a few short miles away in Bristol. Every time we walked into the house you just wanted to sit back and relax and enjoy the scenery. I would highly recommend this home to any vacationers or visitors. I would love to go back for another vacation there.
