Nature’s Best

  • 5 of 5

We picked the location so that we would have the chance to explore a new state and the real feel of nature. The kids enjoyed the pool and the open feel of the house. The attic was a huge hit and they ran free without any worries. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Thank you for a great weekend!

We LOVED this house!

  • 5 of 5

It might not look it, but this house is HUGE inside. It's got 5 real bedrooms, plus a loft. You could sleep a ton of folks here, and a tremendous living room.

It's been a few weeks since our stay, so I've probably forgotten some of the details, but the part that we all raved about is the fireplace. It's like an old (cornerstone says 1910!) fieldstone cooking fireplace and we were able to drag chairs to seat all 10 of us in a semi-circle and everyone got to enjoy the ambiance of a big ole fire.

The day of our arrival was bad weather, so we left early to allow for a slow drive, but the roads were in pretty good shape, so we arrived earlier than expected. After finding no key when we arrived, I called Diana, and within minutes, a truck was roaring up the driveway and we were handed the key. Pretty darn good customer service!

One other thing that our group loved was the beds. SOOOO darn comfortable. The mattresses must all be new, as well as the bedding. We all slept like babies!

One last thing that I really appreciated was the size of the dining table. It seems like a lot of houses for larger numbers of people have tables where not everyone can comfortably share a meal together. This table had ooodles of chairs to go around it and two extensions for the table itself.

Can you tell we really enjoyed the house? Our group usually does a camping trip in the late summer, but after staying at Diana's house and seeing the huge pool, we are rethinking tents and air mattresses.

Thanks for your hospitality, Diana!

Great experience and fun stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this rental. The house was clean and set up nicely. The open floor plan was beneficial for our large group. We were able to all hang out in the same room and eat together. The bedrooms were a decent size and no one felt cramped. The view from the patio and hot tub is amazing. I hope others enjoy this house just as much as we did. It made our Vermont trip that much more pleasing!

This house is so special- perfectly updated but maintaining the rustic touches. We stayed here with two other families for a ski vacation and the setup upstairs was perfect for three couples to have private space. We hope to come back in the summer and experience the pool on a hiking vacation.

Another great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting this house for years - the recent upgrade to the bathrooms and kitchen are a great addition - we stayed for 3 nights over Columbus Day weekend - 4 families with kids and a couple small dogs - it is amazing how easily this house accommodates 11 people (plus 1 baby and 1 toddler who don't really count as people) - very spacious - everything works well (plumbing, kitchen, fireplace with LOADS of wood) - kids love the hot tub - leaves were popping in the distance - we'll be back again for skiing, or summer swims, or spring walks, or autumn leaves. Thanks, Amsden House!

Loved the house, the pool, the hot tub, the view and the lively gift basket the caretaker left us!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this beautiful home and it's many bedrooms and spacious living area! So enjoyed the area especially zip lining at Okemo, an amazing dinner at So Lo Farmhouse, a play at the Weston Playhouse and a visit to nearby Woodstock! We plan to return to charming Amsden House again and again!
