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 Northeast Kingdom

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.

Cindy was a great hostess and made everything clear before our arrival. The home is clean, spacious, and ideally located on Burke Mountain. We had a great weekend. I'd recommend this home to anyone! Thanks Cindy.

Gorgeous and convenient location, great layout, comfortable and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for out 6 day stay. Our family of five adults had a fantastic stay this week. This home at 86 Woods Trail was on Burke Mountain with great views from a lovely wrap-around porch. It had three well equipped floors with three queen-sized beds (1 bedroom on first floor and two bedrooms on upstairs loft floor) and a full additional bedroom that we did not need with a lot of bunk beds and a trundle. The owner kindly allowed us to rent knowing we had a small well-behaved dog. Two of us are mountain bikers. The access to the downhill trails allowed us to stop home for lunch and water breaks with only 3 minute detours. For the single track at Kingdom trails, we would drive a few minutes into town, and ride - so convenient. Kingdom Trails biking trails themselves are so much fun! The rest of the family enjoyed hiking Burke Mountain, and spent hours about 30 minutes away enjoying Lake Willoughby's incredibly clear water. But back to the house... It is equipped with pool table, darts, board games of all types, books, blankets, pillows of various sizes and shapes for different preferences, every kitchen device pot/pan imaginable, an outdoor grill, washer/dryer, etc. We had all the conveniences of home in this gorgeous and fun location. I could not recommend this place more highly.

Beau spot en montagne

  • 4 of 5

Bien situé à flanc de montagne et assez vaste pour 10 personnes. Cependant, pas évident à localiser, il faut suivre les indications à la lettre, ne pas se fier au gps. Pour les riders, il faut être prêt à remonter en vélo la Mountain road à la fin de la journée. Excellent rapport qualité/prix.

Bike in - Bike out at Burke Mountain

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house, well maintained with an astonishing view.

Everything ready for a group of mountain bikers with direct access to Q-burke tracks. A lot of space outside to dry or prepare your gear and nice Weber grill outside to prepare your end-of-day meal. There is a little market down the road with nice and fresh steak.

The description of what is included and not was accurate. You must download the VRBO application to get all the information about the direction, check-in and check out, pretty smooth and easy. I recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I have double checked the description of what is included and believe it to be accurate. We are heading up this coming weekend so will check to ensure all we say we have is still at the house. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Great place to stay for a large group. Clean and great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location for mountain biking. Very thoughtful extras like hoses to wash the bikes and a shed to store them. Well equipped kitchen including a dish washer plus washer and dryer on first floor. Only thing was no air conditioning but house quickly cooled off by bedtime. Owner very quickly answered any questions we had by email. Would definitely stay there again.
