We were two families sharing the home. The location is great, deep in the woods on a hill in south central VT, halfway between Brattleboro and Manchester. The accommodations were spacious and comfortable with great wifi and TVs with streaming readily available. Cell service was poor with 1-2 bars only on Verizon. There was a nice fireplace in the LR with ample wood stacked outside, but no kindling. It would be great if the owner provided a supply of kindling or fatwood or at least old newspapers to help start the fire. Otherwise, bring some kindling or fire starters with you. The heating system was easily adjusted and very comfortable. However, when we arrived there was very little water pressure and no hot water and the pressure dropped to zero after a few minutes, requiring that we call the national 800 number for support. It took a while for them to reach the local support person who was very helpful after calling back two hours later. The breaker for the electric water pump was flipped to off and needed only to be turned on. After we had water pressure, we still could not get hot water and that was very worrisome, but after a half hour or so we got more local help that explained that we needed to trigger the demand hot water heater by turning on the hot water in a sink in the lower level before we could get hot water in the kitchen and main floor bathroom. That was annoying and the only reason we did not give the house a five-start rating. However, we had no way to know that because we were unable to find a manual for renters left out to guide us for an introduction to the use of the home, appliances, etc. There may be one; we just could not locate it. Also, the home needs user instructions, prominently displayed. The electrical panel and hot water heater were in downstairs closets that were labeled, but the signs said not for guest access, giving a mixed message.
Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful house which was in all other respects clean and comfortable. However, unless the hot water situation was addressed and corrected, we might consider other locations because of the inconvenience. We would also prefer an 11 am check out time because we had to rush to get out by 10 am and were a little late leaving.
Everything was as advertised, the stay was amazing and it was a beautiful home.
A pleasant cabin with good beds, a well stocked kitchen and ample parking. We enjoyed our stay and if that way again, would probably stay here.
