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.

Second year stay as good as the first

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we stayed here and enjoyed a family reunion with my sisters and brother and their families. This home is clean and comfortable. Kathy is quickly responsive to any questions. Had dinner at the Bobcat Cafe in Bristol and maple creemees at the roadside stand for dessert. I grew up in VT and live showing my husband my childhood memories. this has become a perfect home base for us. Thanks Kathy!!

Bliss in the Pines

  • 5 of 5

A perfect retreat to go with a nice bottle of wine! Clean... clean... clean. I'm ashamed of how I keep my home after spending a glorious weekend here. Morning coffee while sitting out in the screened porch area - Heaven. I can't say enough about how pleasant of a stay we had. Thoughtful owners give this place its fifth star!

Had a great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice, clean, comfortable, and well kept house. Close enough to activities and secluded enough for privacy. The pool table was also a nice plus. The homeowners were great to exchange emails with and super helpful. Couldn't ask for more!

Beautiful Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful and clean the home was. Large open windows made you feel like you were outdoors while sitting in the living room. The kitchen had everything needed for all our meals. An added touch was the nice pool table in the basement for entertainment. It is nestled in the woods but conveniently located to all the quaint little towns in Vermont. We loved the home and hope when we come back that we can stay at this house again.
