About Cindy Ford

My parents built this house as their dream home. This is where my mom and dad retired to in the 90's. Our family has enjoyed this house for years and continue to do so when we can. We are a family of five who have deep attachments to the house. We enjoy sharing this with our children. My mother still lives at the property. When she rents the home out she visits with family. During the winter months the house is often blocked for our family to enjoy. We enjoy sharing the home with others. It is our getaway and when we are unable to use the house we like to share our piece of paradise with others..

Cindy Ford purchased this house in 1986

Why Cindy Ford chose Burke

My parents decided to build the house on Burke Mountain because we all fell in love with the charm and beauty of the area. They thought the skiing at Burke was unique with the trails through the woods. When you arrive in the Northeast Kingdom you feel as you have stepped back in time. The people are friendly and there is a since of community. My mom lives up there in the house most of the year and she is well looked after from those living up there.

Perfect house for MTB vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house perfectly fit our needs. Seven adults plus one dog stayed here for a long weekend of mountain biking at Kingdom Trails. The house is adorable and cozy and has plenty of space for people to not be on top of each other. The back deck was a huge bonus - we spent most of our time at the house out there - the view is beautiful and it's so quiet. The house is on a quiet, private road which was also nice. Plenty of space in the kitchen. Loved the basement area with pool table and lots of games and puzzles. Highly recommend this house rental!

correct place.

  • 3 of 5

Good view with this house and very good for many person love to play outside and inside. You can play pool when the temperarture is not good. Something very important to know. You need to come with beding and towel. Normaly is good to know before when you doing the reservation. I know that just the day before we come.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at this property a couple of years ago and had a nice time but this visit was a disappointment. The property has deteriorated with peeling wallpaper, grubby looking appliances, stains on the carpet, etc. Probably coloring our impressions unfavorably was the fact that the carpets had not been cleaned. There were crumbs and debris left on the floors. As well, the owner has stopped providing linens and towels. When I contacted the owner about these issues she was unhelpful, first saying that the cleaner hadn't come at all because she saw people in the house (we didn't arrive until 8 pm) then saying that the cleaner had cleaned everything then finally, in a third email saying that the vacuum cleaner had broken. She agreed to refund only half of the cleaning fee because she said the vacuum cleaner had only broken part way through the job! Incidentally, I used a perfectly functioning vacuum cleaner that I found in the basement while we were there.

A shame, because this is a nice house in a nice location with a great view. But it's looking a little tired.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately the vacuum did break as cleaner was cleaning and this has been addressed. During our multiple communications with this renter I was always very apologetic about the issues they had with the property. They were mostly upset about no linens and towels. As I did respond and was very apologetic but did point out that it was in the description of the property when they booked the home. This information is also provided in pre-information that is sent to the renter 14 days prior to date of renting. We are also very aware of the one bathroom that needs work due to wallpaper coming down. This will be done in the off season along with any other repairs or updates. We are also priced a bit lower than other properties our size due to not offering linens and towels at this time. The Jenair oven and stove is only a couple of years old, dishwasher is also only a few years old. Refrigerator is also in good working condition.

Great property

Lots of room for a group of 8+. The view from the deck provides a great sunset view. I will stay here again next year.
