    Family Gathering/Ski Trip
    I booked this property for a trip with my wife, our kids, and our extended family. The description of the property was accurate and Paul was very kind and responsive throughout the process from booking to checkout. Our stay was great, the house is absolutely gorgeous and the colonial-era architecture was a huge hit with us. We had 10 adults, 3 kids and a dog and the property easily accommodated us all. Location is great for skiing at the Southern VT ski areas especially Bromley and Stratton. I expect we'll be repeat customers!

    4/5 Good

    Rustic Vermont Loveliness
    We had a lovely stay in this home. It is very large and can accommodate a big group comfortably. We had some problems with the propane fireplace which was unfortunate as it left the kitchen area unbearably cold at times. The owner did send someone out twice, but a part needed to be ordered so what can you do. Also, the one fireplace that is in the most comfortable gathering space doesn’t work so fires weren’t really a sensible option. Otherwise, it has everything you need to cook and serve many people. This is a rustic house but the epitome of Vermont.

    4/5 Good

    Great for large group
    The property is an old farmhouse. There are 6 bedrooms upstairs, but be aware the steps are steep and somewhat narrow so children (who tend to run up and down stairs) and anyone who has any difficulty with stairs may find it a challenge. Also many of the chairs in the dining areas are quite old and seemingly fragile - some with caning - so not great for kids or more generous frames. The cookware is sparse and dated and the older Wolf gas stove is not the easiest to cook with. However we had an extended family of 13 and with all the bedrooms slept very comfortably.

    4/5 Good

    VT farmhouse
    The house was great for our a purposes- it has many bedrooms and fit a big group of us. The checkin process was also seamless and Paul was very helpful with any questions we had. My one comment is I think the mattresses/linens could use an update— some of them were a little old. Otherwise, the stay was great and I’d recommend to others looking for a Vermont getaway!

    5/5 Excellent

    Incredibly beautiful in Fall!
    My family had such a wonderful time enjoying this space and property. The house was quaint, but what made our stay was the yard. There's so much space for lawn games and an awesome fire pit. The flower garden is stunning, and during the autumn, the leaves and scenery are incredible!
