“The Guy Earle House really can't be beat in terms of coziness, spaciousness, location, and price. We had a big group of friends up for a ski trip to Okemo and the house was the perfect base to fuel up and get all geared up while enjoying each other's company in a picturesque VT village with tons of room to spread out, and it was the perfect landing spot at the end of a big day to cook, play games, sit by the fire, lounge, and sleep in a peaceful house for the next day. The house has more than a large group could ever need, from ample seating areas, linens, dishes and cookware, basic pantry items, and lots of windows to brighten short winter days. Kathy and her husband were super attentive and communicative way ahead of our stay. They were so detailed that we didn't ever need to reach out to them--every need was simply anticipated and taken care of! We'll definitely consider staying here again!”

“This lovingly restored 1850s Vermont farmhouse will not disappoint. Staying at this home will surely be the highlight of your trip (second only to the beauty of the changing leaves). Krystina and Doug are wonderful hosts and live nearby in case you have any questions. Communication was fantastic and the recommendations for local places to visit was invaluable. My family and I enjoyed a reunion at this home and staying here worked out perfectly for that purpose. We hope to return one day!”

“Hugh and Nancy’s ‘Granny Flat’ was the perfect landing zone after a day skiing at Okemo. It’s peaceful and remote yet a 10-15 minute drive to lots of great attractions and restaurants. The property was fun to explore with a neat hike and maple syrup sugar operation on site. We would definitely recommend staying here!”
