There is very little traffic on the river road and only slightly more on nearby Route 5 so cycling, skating, walking, and jogging are safe for young and old.

Adjacent to the gazebo is a sunny seating area located for viewing the nearby pool. There are picnic tables on the lawns as well. Your private out door covered living area has a view of the playground, bonfire area and picnic tables. The large dock is a very quiet inviting place for a picnic, reading or having drinks in the evening.

traveler reviews for this springfield cottage rental

Guestbook Comment

Review submitted: October 17, 2006   Date of arrival: October 1, 2006

Our stay in the Christmas Cottage was wonderful. Our family included myself, my grown daughter, my 81 year old mom, and our dog. The cottage suited all of us beautifully. The foliage, views, and hospitality was spectacular. It was quiet, close enough to drive to other towns. Even a shopping trip for my daughter to Manchester outlets was only 45 minutes away. My mom enjoyed feeding the chickens. There were many craft fairs going on in neighboring towns that we visited. The Connecticut River Valley was just gorgeous. And Peter gave us a wonderful tour of his historic home. The house was lucky to get Peter and Sandra as homeowners, as they have restored it magnificently. I hate to tell too many people about this special place, because we surely want to return again soon. Maybe even venture up to pick out that special Christmas tree that my mom has her eye on!

End of Summer vacation!

Review submitted: September 12, 2012   Date of arrival: August 25, 2012

My family and I spent a week at the Christmas Cottage and had a wonderful time. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The weather was beautiful! There was plenty of room for the 6 of us (4 adults, 2 children). The house was clean and had everything you would need. The location was ideal, on the beautiful Connecticut River, and the views of the Vermont countryside and rows of Christmas tress from the cottage was picture perfect. My daughter had the best time fishing with her granddad off their pier, and canoeing with dad on the river. The owners Sandra & Peter, were really great, making sure we had everything we needed. Thank you so much!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, sight seeing

Great place to kick back and get away

Review submitted: August 16, 2012   Date of arrival: August 4, 2012

I took my wife, two small kids and mom here for the week and all of us, all ages, really found something to love. It's been newly redone and we were only the third guests to stay since the new addition was added on. It's a very relaxed, comfortable, open layout that suited us very well.

The kids loved chasing the chickens and getting up close to the alpacas and goats. We also went tubing, fishing and canoeing on the adjacent Connecticut River and had a blast. But for us the highlight was probably our son learning to ride a bike without training wheels. The street and property are so quiet and open he had plenty of room to practice his new skill, which he mastered on an old bike we found in the barn. The owner, Peter, who is the consummate gentlemen and very helpful with tips about activities, insisted we take the bike home with us as a remembrance of that moment.

Although the farm really feels "away from it all," there are a lot of fun things to do within an hour's drive from here. The kids loved the Montshire Museum of science, which is made for children and extremely well done. We also visited Hanover, home of Dartmouth, Woodstock, home of Billings Farm, and hiked down to Quichee Gorge which I'd highly recommend.

All in all, a great and unique experience. We wanted a relaxing week somewhere rustic, and we got it. You'll enjoy this place.
