family friendly and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Kathy has a wonderful and comfortable home that is conveniently located to all the local sites. We were in Vermont to ski but also spent time in the nearby towns and villages. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

cozy and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Four family members recently stayed at Kathy's home and it was perfect to meet up with others for the wedding of our niece. The setting was so lovely and peaceful. A single doe wondered into the yard one morning snacking on some of the plethora of greenery around the home. Beds were comfortable and though we never cooked there, it looked like all the necessities were provided. Kathy also left us many condiments and a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio - thank you. Would recommend to others.

Perfect for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Kathy is an excellent host. Her home is beautifully located in what seems like an enchanted forest, yet it is located within a five minute drive to shopping, restaurants, and pubs. 15-20 minutes from Middlebury. It is truly a home away from home, with lots of inviting, comfortable space for spending time together. The home is perfectly appointed with everything you could need during your stay, I would highly recommend this location, and would make it my first choice when I am back in the area.

Great location, beautiful drive!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Kathy's home. Quiet, conveniently located, beautiful scenery. Much to our surprise, she must have a child or grandchild that was the around the same age as our 4-year-old, so he loved playing with all the toys!
