    We were very excited to find this property! Our family is from Westminster and we’ve outgrown guest rooms and couches. Renting two hotel rooms in Bratt or Springfield or Keene has been a drag. This was great! Everyone got their own bed, plenty of bathrooms and showers, quiet setting. Beautiful views, and just a few minutes to both grandparents!The teens had fun trying to figure out who Ted Williams was and looking up the family’s histories. House is full of memorabilia for Ted and his wife. A bear game by one of the mornings to poke through the trash, we didn’t see him, but were then glued to the windows hoping to see him come back.Definitely coming back here every visit to VT!

  • Cool Place!


    We enjoyed our couple of days at cabin! Location was great for us, the views were awesome, and the memorabilia would make anyone a Red Sox fan!

    The woodwork was amazing and the house was filled will lots of small detail. Thank you for a great stay!

  • A Must for Red Sox Fans


    We stayed here during a recent trip to the area for golfing. While not baseball enthusiasts, we very much enjoyed the Ted Williams and Red Sox theme. So much history and memorabilia, it was also educational! You could feel the passion his family had when renovating and decorating the place.The view was fantastic and the location was easy to access and find.The house was very clean and accommodating. It had all the utensils we needed, including a coffee bar.We hope to stay again next year!

    Unfortunately, we didn't have the best weather, but this space was still amazing!!! Communication was easy with the owners, and they were very responsive. I loved how things were labeled for ease. This was a perfect and beautiful getaway
