  • 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!

  • Vermont's Finest


    We arrived shortly after the southern Vermont area was hit by devastating flooding. Roads near the Splendid Splinter were being repaired and upgraded, but the Splinter was easily accessible and high and dry. The site has a beautiful overlook of the Connecticut River and New Hampshire. And that's before you go into the house.

    The house is a wonderful mix of old and new that commemorates Ted Williams (Boston Red Sox #9 Hall of famer,) his wife Delores, and their family. The house was renovated a couple of years ago and all kitchen appliances and bathrooms are high-end and modern. Everything you need, other than food, is supplied. The weather was hot, 80+, while we were there, but the central air conditioning kept us very comfortable indoors.

    We've rented other high quality places, but none have been better than this. I would go back any time. Maybe in colder weather so we could enjoy the woodstove and fireplaces. Lots to do in the area. We could easily have stayed more than five nights.

  • Family Reunion


    We rented both properties at the Splendid Splinter to celebrate a 50th anniversary as well as family reunion. The home is amazing with wonderful history as well as beautiful construction and finishes. It is peaceful and quiet with great views from the decks. I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the crowds but to have some rustic elegance while away.
