Quiet little oasis in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

If you want a little piece of nature away from it all, this is it! Nestled in the Green Mountains, this little gem offers all the comforts you'll need for a great stay. On a quiet private road, about 5 minutes from the village of Bristol, you'll enjoy a relaxing time in this three level house. A private gazebo outback makes for stretching those nights a little longer. A fully stocked kitchen, large living area and a very clean and cozy backdrop for your perfect getaway. Besides Bristol, you're less than an hour away from Burlington, Waitsfield, Warren and Middlebury. Great stay, great owners, it's just perfect!

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, brother and I spent 5 glorious days at this lovely home. Private, clean, comfortable, we couldn't have asked for more. We sat out on the porch every day, enjoying the privacy and sounds of nature all around us. Three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms afforded us plenty of room. Washer and dryer, brand new, was perfect for doing laundry mid stay. Plenty of amenities like paper goods and soaps, thank you so much Kathy! This has to be the best place we have ever stayed in Vermont. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in your 'own house'? This is one of those homes we want to tell everyone about (and no one to keep it to ourselves!).

We will be back if you'll have us! Thank you!!

just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy's home far exceeded our expectations. It was as if we had a home in the woods of Vermont. Conveniently located to all we were visiting the area for and stocked with staples that we didn't have to run around looking for - our stay was wonderful. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
