Why Paul chose Stratton and Bromley Ski Areas

My family has lived in Vermont for 8 generations and a relative visited this house 30 years ago when it was a B&B. I looked for a Vermont house for a few years and was fortunate to find this 18th century gem. The house has an interesting history and lots of character. The grounds are lovely and I love the view of Mt. Equinox. I hope you enjoy my home as much as I do.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Great view of Mt. Equinox

Exposed antique wood beams

House has great flow with neat taproom

Large manicured yard - good for kids to run around and play

Private, wooded backyard with large barn

Close to Manchester, Arlington and skiing

Great home for a big family Christmas

  • 4 of 5

We booked this house for us to spend Christmas with our children and grandchildren. We ranged in age from 1-1/2 to 62 years old. A wonderful, cozy house with plenty of room for all 11 of us with 2 dogs. Even the dogs had a blast playing outside in the snow! We had both fireplaces going constantly with wood that I preordered from Equinox Nursery. Paul was very responsive to all questions, and a neighbor quickly took care of the driveway when it got icy. All in all, a great visit and beautiful part of the country!

Great ski weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We spent the Washington Birthday weekend at this historic home with our three daughter and their families, including two toddlers. If you love old homes, cozy fireplaces and a fantastic view of Mt. Equinox, this is the house for you. Paul had excellent and very detailed directions for the house which was very helpful. He was very responsive to text and email questions. The very large living room proved to be the perfect gathering spot for all of us with the two babies in the middle with various blocks, books and items we brought with us. If you like old books, you could be kept busy for hours thumbing through them and enjoying some old games. The kitchen is not overly large so not too many cooks in the kitchen at one time. Paul had warned us the stairs to the second floor were steep and the wood floor slippery, and he was right. One baby stayed with her parents in the in-law bedroom suite off the back of the house, as that daughter is also pregnant, which worked out great. There had been a 20 inch snowfall a few days before our arrival but the house was all plowed out. Having babies in an old house that is not baby proofed, requires a bit of attention. The road the house is on can be a back way to the ski slopes if you want to avoid the Manchester traffic. It had fantastic views of lovely homes and fresh snow sure helped to give it a postcard look. A little ways down the road, in the opposite direction is a wonderful red covered bridge - Chiselville Bridge. I left my ipad on the bed when we packed up and Paul put me in touch with the property maintenance person. She mailed it right out to me and I was able to send her a check to reimburse her. I was so thankful. The house is large and can accommodate quite a few without bumping into each other. I think the fall would be a beautiful time to stay for some leaf peeping. The beds were made when we got there which was a nice touch.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

My coworkers and I enjoyed a long weekend at this wonderful farm house. This place has lots of character. The room layout worked great, the kitchen is set up well, the beds were comfortable and the fireplaces were a nice treat. Driving to Bromley, Magic and Stratton was painless and the town of Manchester was nice to explore.

All arrangements were easy and we look forward to returning some day.

House was great. Perfect for bringing your dog (big yard), playing board games, cooking a big group dinner and congregating around a wood fire.

A Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had booked the 1780 farm house for our daughters wedding at the Equinox. The owner, Paul provided us with detailed instructions for the house which came in very handy. Paul always responded to emails very quickly and was very flexible with check in and check out hours. The house and property are absolutely gorgeous. We had 10 people staying at the house and there was more then enough room. It is located about 5 miles from Manchester. You can park in town and visit all the wonderful shops and outlet stores. I would highly recommend staying at the farmhouse as it served all our needs beyond our expectations. Sitting on the front porch having a cup of coffee in the am and a cocktail in the evening was beyond relaxing. We would no doubt rent this property again................Thanks Ed & Karyn
