    5/5

    Our stay was lovely. We had excellent communication with John prior to our arrival and check in was easy. We were surprised that the master bedroom was kind of separate from the other two so the extra privacy was nice. The books and board games available for use were a really nice touch and we left an extra to add to the collection upon our departure. The kitchen cabinets were incredibly well stocked with dishes. The view of the lake was incredible and if you're lucky you'll even catch a duck family going in and out for the day. Those are all the wonderful positives and we would absolutely stay here again. Here are some of the things we wish someone had shared in a review so we would have been prepared for but not by any means a deal breaker. It's out in the middle of no where, and when people say that they mean it really is 12 minutes to the nearest gas station (this gas station is incredibly well stocked but stop on your way in don't think you can just bop back out to get something) it is so nice to have this privacy and peace and quiet.

    Another positive, it really is very quiet, we didn't hear the road or the neighbors the whole time we were there.

    Because it is out in the middle of no where small critters are par for the course. There is evidence that the host does a lot to mitigate those friends from making themselves at home inside. We did not see any critters inside while there just the bait/repellant/plug ins/etc.

    The floor is a bit drafty (again we went to VT in the winter, it's cold there, but just to be prepared) the thermostat self adjusts to lower the temp and it got pretty chilly (some nights the thermostat dropped to 63) and we had to change it in the middle of the night. The hot water in the shower also doesn't get very hot, so if you like hot showers please be prepared you will not have one here (literally my son's and my husband's only complaint of the whole stay).

    Overall this really is lovely. The host was incredible and responsive. This was our first VRBO experience and it was a very positive one.

    We hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we did!

  • We wanted to go back five minutes after we left!

    5/5

    What a lovely spot! It was quiet and peaceful - just what we were looking for.

    The house was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed. The owner was very nice, responding quickly to a question we had and offering information on a local orchard we wouldn't have wanted to miss!

    We loved every minute of our stay and hope to come back next year. Five stars plus!

  • Perfect Home Base

    5/5

    We were attending a wedding at the Vermont Weddin Barn (an Alpaca farm) in Bridport and this was the perfect home base for our family of 4! The sunsets were beautiful on the lake and we really enjoyed the games and TV options during our down times.

    I agree with some of the reviews, it is more rustic than it looks in the photos but I had alerady read the reviews and expected that. We were comfortable and it was everything we needed!
