Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms plus loft, Sleeps 7 , Child And Pet Friendly

Drive up the country road, over the roaring gorge of the Williams River, past farms and hillsides. Turn onto the long driveway, pass the sparkling pond. The air is fresh, the view is beautiful, and the house is comfortable. You have arrived.

Let the kids run off their energy in the huge, mowed lawn, while you read that novel in the hammock or go fishing in the pond. Take a nice nature hike, cool off in the pond, throw dinner on the grill, then build a campfire, roast some marshmallows, look up at the stars.

No kids? Grab a bottle of wine and some nice aged Vermont cheddar, sit in the Adirondack chairs, watch while hummingbirds come to the gardens and wait for deer to emerge from the forest. Cook a romantic meal in the well equipped kitchen, then snuggle up to a fire in the stone fireplace.

Inside, with classic and antique furnishings, you'll feel right at home surrounded by the stone and wood elements, while the art stimulates your mind and spirit.

This house is all that it should be inside, and more than you can imagine outside, with nature and opportunity abundant.

The Vermont Country Lodge: Our new favorite place

5 of 5

We booked the Vermont Country Lodge for a weekend getaway. Our goal was to spend a weekend in Vermont with a fireplace and a quiet place to write. What we arrive to was so much more than I imagined. It was dark when we arrived, maybe not the best way to get there, as the road in is narrow and bumpy, but it made for a wonderful next day.

From the massive stone step at the back door, to the gorgeous stone work on the fireplace and rough-hewn wide plank floors, I was so happy not to be in a cookie cutter hotel. The walls were adorned with pieces of art, many painted by the owner, as well as unexpected touches—a fishing pole, a didgeridoo, a dream catcher. We have rented other private residences and felt as if it wasn't ours or worse, wasn't very clean, this was so different. We both felt privileged to have this special place entrusted to us.

The post and beam elements and the way the cabin sits on the land communicate a sense of this place having been here for many, many years. Sitting on the front porch, swinging in the hammock and simply walking the grounds was the perfect way to unplug (that being said, the wi-fi worked like a charm). The wind moves through the leaves creating the most pleasant and calming swishing sound.

The bedding was incredible, with flannel sheets and weighty duvets. The eclectic furnishings made me exclaim in delight on more than one occasion. I simply cannot say enough good things about this place.

If your hope is to experience Vermont in a comfortable and memorable way, you cannot go wrong with this location.

Quiet and expansive

5 of 5

Thank you for the opportunity to rent your lovely home in VT. We had an awesome and relaxing time. It's hard and expensive to travel with four kids of all different ages (18, 17, 13 and 16 mths), so your home and amenities was exactly what we needed. Enough space for each of us to have our own space, internet for the teenagers, play some badminton, relax on the porch and allow the baby to wander around the yard without the fear of him going into the street. Even though the only thing we caught in the pond was a turtle we still had fun trying. It was perfect.

There are a TON of toys in the ottoman. We didn't notice them until the morning that we were leaving. I never thought to open it, I only opened when we were leaving to make sure the kids didn't put something inside and behold all the toys!

Great property in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Even though it was raining most of the time, the kids couldn't resist playing in the large wonderful yard. The long driveway is an exciting walk for young children. The house itself is comfortable. The back porch is a perfect place to sit in the morning watching the fog on the pond. I hope to be able to come back again.

Magical

We had such a wonderful time there. We were a total of 5. 2 adults, a child and 2 teens. The home is comfortable, well done, spacious, beautifully-decorated, and fully- equipped with all we needed. Thank you again!

Very nice, scenic house

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with two friends to do an amateur radio contest from one weekend and we had a great time. There's two bedrooms plus two other beds so it's easy for people who aren't related to share the place. The kitchen is fully stocked. The front porch is really nice, and the yard is huge and open. There's plenty of room to run around. The downstairs is not large, and it's all one big room so if someone wants to watch TV you can't really get away from that. However, the outdoors is huge and I think that's probably where you should be spending your time anyway.

The only minor complaint is that there's just the one bathroom. It could get really busy if you have several people staying at one time.

Moms' weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed for a much needed weekend away to relax with our pups. Had such a great time here. It's far enough away, yet close enough to be worth the drive. The house was well kept. We had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the property was perfect for a hike and the dogs to roam. We will definitely come back!

Comfortable and quiet winter get away!

  • 5 of 5

The cabins location was perfect to enjoy a quiet and relaxing vacation. The cabin is cozy and offered plenty of room to relax by the fire with a fully stocked kitchen for cooking and baking. Surrounding woods offered many easy and snowy hikes for myself and dog. Perfect location and layout, I highly recommend.

Snowy Christmas family retreat stay.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights in this lovely cabin with our 2 teenage kids & 2 dogs. The perfect blend of quaint rustic charm, quiet scenic location, and modern conveniences. Loved the stone fire and wood burning stove. Played board games, watched movies, played in the snow & had some quality family time. Great hike with our dogs to the top of the hill. Well equipped cabin with artistic decor. Everything you need is here. We had a foot of snow during our stay but kept nice and warm & cozy in the cabin and were plowed out by the next door neighbor by our time to leave. Quaint town of Chester is nearby & the Vermont Country Store is just down the road. Thanks Brandi & Mike for letting us stay in your lovely well maintained cabin.
