What Past Guests Are Saying
Vt Mini Ski Trip
This rustic country cottage was exactly as described. It worked out very nicely for our small group. It was great not having to be concerned about packing and bringing clean linens. The bathroom was spacious and clean. We were able to enjoy home cooked meals is the nice kitchen.
The hot tub was a huge hit with the teens in our group. The location was very peaceful and quiet. It was a great place to take a long walk. It was a quick and easy ride to Smuggler's Notch.
We had some issues with heat that caught the owners unaware. They did what was in their power to address the issue and was proactive in compensating us for the inconvenience caused.
The only other thing that I found a little uncomfortable was the large number of spider webs throughout the cottage. A thorough cleaning of the ceilings would address that issue.
Great Ski or Relaxation Vacation Spot
This place was perfect for what we wanted an economical beautiful place in a quiet area. We had a great time the place was very clean and the owners were extremely accommodating and friendly. It was only 15 minutes from smugglers notch and every mornings drive was beautiful and a drive through a winter wonderland. I would recommend this place to anyone and hope to revisit again in the future. (I don't think I will be able to ever ski again without a hot tub)
