The house was even better than the photos. Very well appointed kitchen, lots of movies and books, such an attractive and comfortable space. Perfect for a girls trip of cooking, cards, movies, and traipsing around in the snow. The owner was kind and very responsive:
We stayed here nearly a week over the 2019 Presidents' Day holiday, skiing at Burke and Stowe. There were eight in our party: three couples, two little kids, plus a dog.
Everyone had a wonderful time and Kevin was ever at-the-ready in case we had any questions or needs.
This place has sleeping possibilities for 14 as we counted them. (15, if you have and count a dog and use the large in-kitchen crate[!])
The sleeping arrangements are perfect for three or four couples and up to five-to-six kids. Three couples have three adjacent upstairs bedrooms served by the front staircase. Those three bedrooms are of different sizes and bed arrangements: the largest has a queen plus a twin, the next has a queen, and the smallest has a full. (Note that this last room is a bit tight, but certainly not too-so, and inasmuch as we were hosting we took it.) Served by a second staircase leading up from the wonderful kitchen/family room is what we think of as a dorm room with three twins, two of which are trundles, and which give this room nice sleeping for up to five kids or very-familiar singles/couples.
Connecting the three 'adult' bedrooms and the 'dorm room' is the second floor two-door bathroom (and yes, both doors lock).
Overall, this is an outstanding setup for a multi-generation family or close friends with kids.
The first floor is quite spacious, as the pictures show.
One couple can use (we didn't) a sofa sleeper in the sitting room.
Around this floor are three TVs: one in the kitchen/family room; one in what was likely once a dining room and is now a game room; yet another in the 'theater room', which is complete with half a dozen recliners for movie night. (Note that the kitchen and theater room TVs have Amazon Firesticks; we didn't use or check the third one.)
Both bathrooms are capable, and the cute use of plumbing parts on the first floor one deserves a chuckle! (But also note that they are plumbed in common so separate use of showers can preclude an unexpected dash of cold water.)
The main feature of the house is the wonderful kitchen/family room. It is well equipped and cozy-warm, with a perfect gas heating stove that is of current issue with an optional temp setting, and a giant eight-person+ picnic table that can bring everyone together at mealtime.
Bottom line: This is a delightful and very spacious home away from home (pun intended). Warm in winter, nicely and fully equipped, and with a caring and creative owner. Big five-star props!
