Great Place for Large Group

My friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as part of a reunion ski trip. The house is quite charming and spacious enough for our group of 11!

A charming country home, perfect for any getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful "base camp" for our annual ski trip. We're a close group of friends, but there was plenty of space for all of us to have our privacy — not to mention comfortable beds and multiple bathrooms. The setting is quaint and charming. The kitchen is equipped to make enough food for everyone to gather around the large dining-room table. And the fireplaces thawed us out after a long day of skiing. Definitely recommended!

Traditional New England Farmhouse delivers on charm, convenience and efficiency

  • 5 of 5

We had three adults and two young boys (age 10) who had a wonderful three-night stay in this cozy, convenient farmhouse. Modern necessities complemented old-school charm on the inside and 30 minutes to Mt. Snow for those of us who skiied. Perfect setting and I highly recommend for anyone who wants a genuine New England experience. Attention to detail by the owners was icing on the cake!
