This vacation rental is very charming and it is in a quiet and beautiful location. Bill is an excellent host and takes good care of his guests. He accommodated to our requests and responded very fast when contacted.
Our group had 4 children and 6 adults. There was enough room for all but the place has mostly futons and benches with mattresses. We felt the place should be decluttered to have more room available for the guests. We could all take our showers one a the time (even if there were two full bathrooms) due to water pressure issues.The main bathroom needs to be upgraded to make it cleaner for the guests. The were major cleaning and safety issues that are now being addressed by Bill so the future guests will be more comfortable and at ease at this place.
We loved that the kitchen is very well equipped with pans and dishes. There were very nice bbq grills available, baking supplies including hand mixers, ovens, as well as two fridges and plenty of bed linens and towels for the guests. There were many pillows too, although they are also due for a replacement.
Overall, we were happy with our stay but we all thought that a thorough maintenance routine will improve this place a lot.
Thank you Bill for keeping your home in such a magnificent mountain climate. Your house reminds me places that I have visited in my home country during my mountain trips. My whole crew shares the same feelings. I hope we will come back there soon.
Love this place, lots of different places for people to sleep, myself and the other guests took full advantage of the wood burning furnaces the entire weekend, always clean, we look forward to a weekend at Bills cabin every year!
Our family has been renting this very flexible house for a week or two each summer so long that the grandchildren think we own it. All three grandkids once slept in the "cave" while mom and dad slept in the master bedroom with attached deck for star gazing. Grandparents were downstairs with their own private one bedroom unit. Over time mom and dad have taken to the privacy downstairs, the girls (11 and 14) have spread out to the loft (once the special space for the spry auntie) and an alcove couch, while the boy (9) still loves the cave! Grandparents now have the master with desk and deck! Saw the "Super Moon" from there last summer. And the pancake breakfasts in the convenient kitchen, walks to the lake, berry picking, local hiking and browsing in quilt shops and book stores of nearby towns bring us back each year. I highly recommend this rental in the beautiful Vermont woods for summer holidays.
