It all adds up to a perfect combination of peace and quiet, accessibility, and convenience!

Comfortable country home.

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable country home with a lot of land. Perfect for a family to spread out. Peaceful setting, away from it all but with a good wifi connection. Comfortable beds. Loved the tub with a view upstairs. We loved that linens/towels were included, and the kitchen was well appointed with everything needed for food prep. We enjoyed wandering the property and exploring nearby towns.

Cozy and perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are very cozy and secluded, perfect for our group weekend getaway! Chris was very helpful and responsive, especially during a near blizzard, during which he called to make sure the driveway was plowed and we were able to get out cars out. We brought our pup who loved running around in the large backyard area while we took turns sledding down the hill. Kitchen was perfect for making a large meal for our group, especially after a day of skiing at nearby Mt. Snow!

Wonderful house, very clean, would definitely visit again.

Thank you!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, great property and location. The house was clean and fully stocked with linens, dishes and all the little things you tend to forget at home. We couldn't find some trails because of all the fresh snow but enjoyed the property nonetheless. About 30 minutes from Mount snow . Definitely would rent again.

Very cozy and roomy

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The house was about a 30 min drive to Mt Snow and quick 20 min to Wilmington. It reminded us of going to our grandmas house in Lake George, lots of things to look at and very well organized with plenty of clean sheets and linens.

Thank you!

Perfect ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent our NYE at this amazing property. We loved the fact that the house is kind of secluded and all you see around is only snow covered trees. The house is very clean and cozy, it has plenty of cookware, and we definitely enjoyed the master bedroom Jacuzzi. I should mention that our favorite spot was rocking chairs next to the fireplace, perfect setup for winter evening to enjoy glass of wine.

The house is very conveniently located, only 30 min drive to Mt. Snow. Also, the owner, Chris, is very polite and helpful, he replied to any question or request within an hour. We were very pleased with our stay, wish we had spend there more than just a weekend.
