A Christmas Memory

  • 5 of 5

Hardly a day goes by that we do not talk about the wonderful month we spent in Vermont at this home. Our children had never seen snow, and boy did they see lots of it. The place could not have been nicer. So much open space and lots and lots of windows. We would spend the morning drinking coffee and watching the birds snack at the birdhouse, while our two young children were safely playing on the large wrap around deck. There were endless opportunities for exploration around the large lot. I can only imagine how much fun we would have in the summer with the creek. Although we did have fun throwing snow and ice into the creek and watch it melt away. The house is away from any noise, you are basically the last house on the street. We saw wild turkey on morning walks. We were also centrally located to many activities and quaint little towns. The owner was so helpful with suggestions of activities, places to eat (the brewery was fabulous) and just checking in to see if there was anything we ever needed. The house was very clean and the kitchen was awesome! We made dinner every night and sat around the large dining room table. The wood burning stove was fun for making smores. We can not wait to go again and see what summer time holds for us. I hope we can get this house again because during our month stay this place became our home.

3rd time visit as good as the rest

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! Sitting on the deck overlooking the valley is so relaxing. The evenings are quiet except for the stars popping out overhead. The house is well equipped for cooking with the kitchen overlooking the great room. The bedrooms have nice beds. Whole house was clean and well maintained. The 3-mile ride up the dirt / gravel road is all so worthwhile. Hope to be back in 2-years!

Very nice house with great views

  • 5 of 5

This house has ample space for two families or a semi large group.

Kitchen has everything you need.

Bathrooms also have lots of towels and even shampoo.

The drive up the road is long about 3 miles.

However, we enjoyed the privacy.

Eat breakfast and/ or lunch at the Maple Diner.

There is also a pizza place at the beginning of the road that had an extensive menu.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this home.

Peaceful retreat in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful well maintained property. Very clean with tastefully updated furniture and amenities. We greatly enjoyed our week there. Peaceful location but close enough to enjoy and experience local attractions. Charming town of Woodstock, Calvin Coolidge's birthplace and home, hiking trails and beauty abounds.

We would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a lovely home away from home. The owners are wonderful to work with. Thank you to the Seals family for making your families vacation chalet available to us.

Amazing!!! Plan to be back again !!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying this review was LONG overdue !!! Mason is a great guy. I stay in Vermont for a week once a winter for 5 years now and he has by far been the best owner to work with! The house has everything you could need. It is perfectly secluded and has the great feel of privacy and is Vermont style living at its best. The property has a nice open area and hill right next to the house, all you have to do is cross the wonderful creek running past the house. You can sled and fool around for hours. Next you get to the way the house is arranged. Its perfect ! The kitchen and living room are technically on the second floor, with that said they are adjoining with a wide open area with tremendous ceilings. It also has the only thing that could make the "hang out" area better is the beautiful wrap around deck circling the house by the living room dinning room and kitchen. Not far from town, food or the mountian. Great house! Even better owner!

Thanks Mason EVERYBODY had a GREAT TIME
