About Kit Olivi
Newly retired history teacher, mother of three, who finally made it back to full time living in beloved Vermont. But I am off to see the world and visit my grandchildren. So be my guest and enjoy the beautiful location, away from the fray, yet close to town and mountain skiing.
Kit Olivi purchased this House in 1990

Country setting, uncluttered, unique classic home. Hearing the river and the wind blowing the trees, enjoying the fragrance of a woodburning stove wafting through the air, you cant beat it.

Cozy house with rustic charms
Charming old house, comfortable and cozy; some of the rooms could benefit from a renovation (not shown on the pictures). We experienced some misunderstanding with the owner as we couldn't find a welcome note explaining some basic things about the property. Overall we unfortunately didn't feel very welcome in her house.
It is always uncomfortable for owner to report a lack of respect by guests. This could have been avoided if the house rules were followed.
First, guests carelessly failed to turn off the propane fireplace properly. The instructions are clear and simple. This caused problems and an annoyance for guests.
Second , the kitchen stove top was just plain filthy, crusted with food, and the kitchen floor looked as if no one ever wiped their feet. Instructions say, leave kitchen floor broom clean.- not a footprint collage.
As to the lack of instructions upon arrival this was due to the failure to replace the old instructions with a new booklet now available. I apologize for the property managers failure to drop off the new and now complete booklet. It was my responsibility as owner, to see that it was there.
I am afraid that all and all the guests were not respectful and did not follow guidelines. Thank you, Kit
Sweet and very homey accommodations to stay for a long weekend with friends. We enjoyed the comfortable beds and well-equipped kitchen. It was thoughtful of Kit, the owner, to leave some breakfast ingredients to get us started. The location is nice for peace and quiet. There are plenty of hikes as well as nice dirt road jogging/walking about 15 minutes drive south of the house
Most excellent guests. They were a pleasure to host, kind and considerate.
We loved the house! Great setting—and my kids loved the fast internet service for all of their “nature setting selfies”. We would enjoy staying there again for sure!
The house was beautiful and so was the property. I really enjoyed my winter vacation with my son and dogs. Will definitely be back
We had a great time!
What a lovely home!
Hello and thank you for being wonderful and respectful guests. I was informed by the cleaning staff that the house was in perfect order. Unfortunately I did not personally see the house as I was away. Other guests came before I returned.
Thank you and come back when the weather is better.
Cozy and quaint!
This house was just what we wanted for a weekend away in October. The house had everything you need for cooking and cleaning. We were comfortable and cozy! The directions for using the fire place and the wood stove were great. Close to Manchester!
