Why Paul chose Sunderland

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

HI - Our group of 12 did a last minute spring skiing trip from Boston.

House was perfect for our group - Tons of space - awesome antique fireplace and only 20 minutes to Bromley and 25 to Stratton.

Hope to return next ski season!

Nice and big house

  • 4 of 5

We liked the house. It is an old house and you can tell, but we knew that going in. The Paul Foucher, the property manager (or owner) was very helpful and understanding. We were a big group with kids and we had a great time. The only thing I could say it needs improvement are some of the chairs in the house are very old and brittle, and the house could be cleaner (there were a lot of dust in the drawers, crib, under and next to the beds, etc.).

Owner's Response: Hi Hiram - Thanks for your review. I am replacing those 3 antique chairs and instructed my cleaning team to dust more in the drawers and under/next to the beds, etc.

It’s all true!

  • 5 of 5

After spending the weekend with 8 adults & a few dogs there’s little I can add to the description of this rental, other than confirming all of the info is true, accurate, and that communication was fast, friendly and efficient. It’s a great house in a beautiful area, with plenty of room and a group-friendly layout. Despite its historic beauty, it kept plenty warm during some early season single-digit nights! We’ll definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks Brian for your great review! I noticed the outside temperature got down to 8 degrees your first night - glad to hear my newly installed furnace kept things toasty. I look forward to having you as a guest again.

Wonderful experience.

  • 4 of 5

This rustic home was perfect for our extended family's stay to attend a wedding. Plenty of room to hang out and it was close to shopping and dining venues. Would love to go back during other seasons and enjoy the beautiful scenery in this area.

Perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Everything was easy from the initial reservation, to communicating about some specific questions, to check in and check out. The house was perfect for our group-- so good to find a house with so many bedrooms appropriate for adult couples! I only wish we could've stayed a bit longer.
