About Matthew and Rachel Brace

Matt and Rachel have been living in Vermont full time since 2003. We purchased this home in 2005 and it has been a labor of love to fix it up over the past 10 years. We relocated to Concord, MA and have opened up The Roxbury for rent. We hope that people wishing to have the true Vermont Experience will check it out!

Why Matthew and Rachel Brace chose Sugarbush, Mad River Glen

The Roxbury is simply a house with character! It is a huge contemporary ski house built in 1972. Great for dinner parties, spending time with friends and family relaxing on the couch in front of a burning fire in the winter or on one of the many decks during the summer. We are located close enough to Sugarbush to make it a steal but far enough away to make it a real getaway. There are many times we both stop and take a moment to look around at this house - we are very lucky to have found this bit of heaven in Vermont.

We are 8 minutes from Norwich University, a 15-20 minute ride over a scenic mountain road to the Mad River Valley/Sugarbush area and 25 minutes from downtown Montpelier. Beautiful scenery surrounds us!

What makes this house unique

Many cozy nooks to spend by yourself or with another. Quiet location with many trees but plenty of sun to relax on the deck too. Central location to the Warren/Waitsfield/Sugarbush /Norwich University area but also only 25 minutes from Montpelier.

Guests have access to all Vermont has to offer from skiing (downhill and cross country), hiking, biking, swimming, sightseeing, eating, relaxing and more!

Great house! Just what you think of when imaging a Vermont mountain vacation house.

The house was perfect for us - a group of three couples looking to get together for a long weekend. The house was very clean and had a great living room and kitchen. The owners were very helpful and prompt in answering our questions leading up to our trip. The house is nice and secluded, but just a short 20-minute ride to Sugarbush.

Welcoming and Well-Equipped

  • 5 of 5

Each year, seven of my closest friends and I rent a property in Vermont and ski at a local resort. Of all the homes we've enjoyed, The Roxbury was by far the most comfortable and inviting. The owners were friendly and were always immediately available when questions arose. The views from the home were stunning and Sugarbush Ski Resort was a relatively short drive away. If ever we find ourselves looking to ski Sugarbush in the future, we know that we will have a place to call home. Thanks Matthew and Rachel!

Our stay at this property was beyond our expectations.The location of the house was on the end of the road with lots of privacy, a ready to use hut tub AND it was all conveniently located 15-20min away from a ski resort! The owners, Rachel and Matt, were very considerate to us arriving a little early due to a snowstorm, and had the place well prepared earlier then the anticipated check-in time. The atmosphere of the property was very cozy, the house was clean with all the essentials, tons of cooking supplies, including a grill which came in handy for a New Year's dinner. Both owners were easily reachable when we had questions, and their care for their guests was very noticeable upon arrival. I would definitely consider coming back for another stay and would highly recommend it to my family and friends! - D.A.C. Family.

cozy ski chalet

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay in Roxbury! Matthew and Rachel are terrific hosts and everything was wonderful! From the amazingly comfortable beds to the plentiful towels for the hot tub. Everything was in working order and couldn't have been easier. We had PLENTY of space to spread out and we didn't feel confined! There were 3 full bedrooms in addition to the sleeping loft, which our kids loved. AND we could bring our dog, which was priceless. We loved the Xbox and work-out room! There were plentiful supplies for cooking! We were very close to Sugarbush as well as close to great restaurants. We will surely be back!

Owner's Response: If we could have designed the perfect guest these folks were them! They treated our house as if it was their own - which is all we ever ask any of our wonderful guests. They were even kind enough to help out with the laundry as we had a very quick turnaround due to a nice big snowstorm. We hope to have these folks back anytime they wish to come! Great experience!

This couldn't have been more perfect for our family. It truly is a hidden gem. We had 7 adults 2 kids and a dog. The house was very clean, you could not tell that they allowed pets. The open floor plan with the large kitchen dining room and living allowed us to stay close but out of each others way. The kitchen was completely stocked with pots, pans and utensils allowing us to cook our big breakfast both mornings. Not only would I recommend this location to family and friends our family is already talking about returning! On a personal note the owner calls all of his rentals after they inquire about his property which I thought was more professional they just emails.

As always, my family had a wonderful stay at the Roxbury! Matt and Rachel went out of their way to make sure we had everything we need. It really feels like home every time we come to Vermont and stay here but with a few added perks, the hot tub and the beautiful Vermont scenery especially in the Fall are wonderful. Thanks for everything, hope to stay agin soon. Lori D.

We allow dogs because we are dog owners ourselves. However, we ask that you pick after your pet!! Unless your pet goes into the woods - we expect ALL waste to be picked up. It is not acceptable to allow your pet to go all over the lawn and/or driveway. You will not receive all of your deposit back if you do not clean up after your pet!

Please tell us a bit about yourself and your party when you do a request for booking. We like to know who our potential guests are ... where they are coming from, how many people, ages, etc.
