  • Beautiful


    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

  • Wonderful Stay


    The visit was fantastic. The owner/manager of the property was very communicative and quick to respond with any questions. The place was a wonderful house to visit with friends. Plenty of space to gather in the kitchen/living room area. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you for a great time!

  • A Home Run for our family


    Ted Williams' onetime home turned out to be the perfect place for our little family reunion, with a variety of seating and sleeping arrangements indoors and expansive grounds outside. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen roomy and well stocked. Not everybody in our party cared about all the Wiliams-related artwork and memorabilia, but I was thrilled to be amongst it all -- and some of it is quite impressive. The location is secluded -- but so is practically everything in this part of Vermont, so the need to travel some distance for groceries, restaurants, etc. is a given. It's such a lovely area, you won't mind the drives. Anytime I'm bringing a large group of people to southeastern Vermont, I'll hope to book this house again.

  • So impressive!


    The Splendid Splinter is a real show piece! Everything the listing claims and then some! We had such a great stay and enjoyed every nook and cranny of memorabilia.

  • Wonderful home and property


    There was plenty of space inside and outside for kids to adventure while the adults could gather in the kitchen/living room area. Large dining room with the fireplace also gave the adults an area at night while kids slept to socialize. The bathtub and sauna were added bonuses, b the property grounds themselves were amazing to explore!
