Description of the Craftsbury vacation home rental
WE NOW OFFER WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS!!

Our Craftsbury Home is located on 76 acres, in picturesque Craftsbury Commmon, Vermont. Craftsbury Common is a small town set in the emerald green, rolling hills of the North East Kingdom, surrounded by great hiking opportunities, lakes, rivers and is the home of the renowned Craftsbury Outdoor Center, famous for it's cross country ski trails and skulling camps. Just down the road in Albany you will find the Craftsbury Outdoor Camp at Hosmer Point.

It is under an hour's drive to four different ski resorts and spas, including Stowe, Smuggler's Notch, Burke and Jay Peak. Local lakes include the magnificent Lake Willoughby, Lake Memphremagog, Big Hosmer, Caspian Lake, Crystal Lake, The Green River Reservoir and Lake Eligo. Bring your shells, your kayaks, your rowboats, your wind-surfers and mountain bikes for summertime fun and your skis, snowshoes and snowmobiles in the wintertime.

If you prefer quiet, viewing wildlife, contemplation, organic food and homemade cheeses; perhaps an evening out enjoying a local concert at The Music Box or attending the Craftsbury Chamber Players or delighting at the Concerts on the Green; browsing our local wares (organic of course!) at the farmer's market in the summertime, thawing out in the jacuzzi jetted tub after a day of skiing, or imbibing in a cup of hot cider in front of the fireplace; sitting at the small game table in the living room for a lively game of Pictionary or Scrabble, our former home in Craftsbury can provide all of this for you.

Our warm, spacious and inviting home offers a unique hexagonal shape, filled with light from large windows facing south and west. The heart of the home is an 8 foot diameter rock chimney located in the center of the home, seated in the foundation and extending from the 14 ft ceilinged basement all the way up to the to upstairs bedrooms. It provides a fireplace in the sunken living room and a fireplace in the upstairs bath, which also includes a Jacuzzi jetted tub. There are also 3 bedrooms upstairs, two with double beds and the master bedroom has a king sized bed. Each bedroom has a small portable cot stored in the closet for additional sleepers. There is an additional bathroom with claw foot tub & shower downstairs, off of the foyer.

The kitchen and dining room are open. The kitchen is fully stocked with a stove, griddle, oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer. All fine linens are provided for your sleeping pleasure.

There is parking for one car in the garage and there is ample parking in the driveway.

There is a TV in the master bedroom and in the living room, each with a DVD player for you to watch your favorite movies, whether you bring them with you or rent them at either of the Craftsbury Stores. The C-Village store provides gas for your car and both country stores have a wonderful deli for your country outings and groceries for your pantry.

Every season has it’s own special activities, it’s own sights and smells, it’s own types of laughter and wonder. Whether you need play time, rest time or healing time...

Magic awaits you…

We were very pleased with this rental unit as it was very private and relaxing with a very tranquil feel. We loved the home because it felt like it was our home! There was plenty of space and room to move around in without bumping into each other. There were multiple amenities to many to mention ! Would recommend this property to anyone and would love to return in the future!

My husband and i like to go away every year around our Anniversary, and we have very exact criteria that we like met in our rentals. First, we like remote properties. Being up in the NEK, this one was spot on. Also, we like privacy, and this one fit the bill with no neighbors being within eyesight of the property. No dogs barking, no neighbors talking, not even airplane or car noises. (the house is located next to last on a dead end road, there seems to be a auto repair shop a ways down on the end, but we saw very little traffic). The house had a wonderful view of mountains and rolling hills, and at night the area was extremely dark and quiet. Excellent star gazing! We put a blanket outside and lay on our backs and enjoyed stars. When we arrived, the house was clean and well aired. We came on the off season, so we expected the closed up smell that we usually get apon renting this time of year. But this house smelled fresh and clean. There was a couple of nice bouquets of fresh flowers left for us, as well as an assortment of local foods that we were surprised and delighted to have received. THe owner left us a message that the microwave had died before we got there and if we needed a replacement she would have one brought over asap. We really didn’t need it as I wasn’t really cooking, but the gesture was appreciated. Nice to know that the owners were there at a moments notice to fix things. We ate out as much as possible, being our anniversary and I wanted to do very little cooking, and i would recommend the Railroad st restaurant in the nearby town. The bee’s knees was also a nice place to eat breakfast. The house had a sunken living room with a large fireplace, and a large supply of firewood was left for our use. A smaller upstairs fireplace in the bathroom was a delight, and I had a bath every night I was there with a fire going. (btw two people can fit in the bath. ;) ). The house had a rustic feel but eclectic decorating style that I really appreciated. We sat every night on the porch with a few drinks enjoying the peace and quiet, and would recommend this place if you just want the same. Besides a good window cleaning, there wasn't any cons that i could come up with. I didn’t see any lawn chairs around, and that would have been nice to sit in the yard. But thats about it. HIGHLY RECOMENEDED

Our stay was a wonderful one, we did in fact had to deal with unfortunate weather circumstances that affected our stay but Margarita was very accommodating and kind. She made every effort to make our stay an enjoyable one. We definitely want to come back every year. We loved waking up to the gorgeous view every morning. Her lot seems endless & its just beautiful to see all the trees and snow. In addition, we simply loved where her home is located...very close to Stowe and close to Jay Peak. I really felt centralized. Had a great time!!!!

This house is unreal in the winter time. It's surrounded by woods and more snow than you can imagine. It is so peaceful and quite to come back to after a day at Jay. And the fireplace is just what you need while watching a movie. I highly recommend this place!

This was our second stay at this beautiful house and we had an even better time than last year. My kids enjoyed the toys and instruments at the house and we had a blast sledding and snowshoeing without having to drive anywhere. We will back next yearour third year in a row!

We went with teenage children and had a truly fantastic time as a family. From the moment we walked in, till the time we left, we had a relaxing but fun time. The house was impecible, warm and inviting. Attention to every detail. We sat outside having our coffee looking at the mountains every morning. Waking up to the view of tree tops and mountains in each bedroom which was filled with light, started the day. Soaking the sore muscles from hiking and visiting the number of swimming holes that are throughout Vermont in the jaccuzi in the master bathroom was a nice benefit. We played soccer in the yard, card games, board games, went to Stowe, close to Montreal, you can do as much or as little as you want. Great location, beautiful home. We are coming back !!
