Also, here are some recent REVIEWS of the Littlebranch property:
Lloyd - December 2016 - "the house is Amazing . . ."
Dan C - April 2016 - I very much enjoyed my stay at Littlebranch. There was a spacious kitchen and living/dining area; the beds (even the pull out couch beds) were very comfortable. And the location is very private and secluded so it's perfect for a relaxing getaway. It's ideal for someone looking for privacy and relaxation, or for hikers/trekkers, or for families looking for some family time. Ski resorts and summer activities in the Green Mtn National Forest are close by. I'd recommend it.
MK - April 2016 - We booked both properties for a joint bachelorette/bachelor weekend. The owners could not have been more generous and informative. The properties were incredible- clean, well-maintained, and extremely user-friendly. We had an absolute blast; I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice VT getaway!
Mayer - Oct. 2015 - We just had a wonderful family reunion (12 adults and 11 children) at the two Mettawee properties. The description of the houses in the brochures and online is quite accurate, making it easy to plan. Needless to say, the location is lovely and offers lots of privacy. The following pertains mainly to the Little Branch House. The marble entrance way to the basement is stunning and inviting. The house itself is well laid out, separating the roomy dining and living room area from the bedroom area. The large pieces of artwork found throughout the house are classy. The spacious kitchen is so well equipped that we ALL could eat at Little Branch without running out of plates, glasses or silverware. The six bedrooms are quite functional, furnished with hi-end bedding and decorated attractively. The air hockey table in the basement was a big hit with young and old. Since we rented both houses, the pool at the Mettawee House was available; it was an attraction for grandchildren and adults. To summarize, the two Mettawee properties were a perfect place to make our family reunion relaxing and memorable.
Christina - Aug. 2015 - LITTLEBRANCH – LARGE FOR FUN AND RELAXATION Littlebranch is a spacious house located on N. Main Street, less than two miles from the center of Danby and easily found by following the directions provided by the owner. The house sits partway up a gently sloping hill and faces mountains in the Green Mountain National Forest that can be seen over a driveway that is lined with shade trees. At the end of the drive at Littlebranch is a marble flagged patio that leads to a walk-in basement. After entering the basement featuring an entertainment and game room, a walk up a short flight of stairs leads in one direction to a suite of six bedrooms, including a master bedroom and bath, and in the other direction is a wide-open, single room, kitchen, dining, living room area. Around a corner is a quiet office retreat that overlooks pastureland in the rear and is furnished with a computer desk and excellent WiFi. A sliding door off the living area opens to a back yard deck containing a picnic table and a propane-fired grill. The kitchen area is equipped with modern appliances and a large island around which are stools - all ready to be used as a serving area or for casual eating. The dining area features a long table that comfortably seats 12. The living area has sofas and chairs, a stereo setup and a large plasma TV. The whole house is well-lighted and clean by any standard. The owner keeps the grounds well groomed and supplied the house with dishes, pots and pans and every kitchen utensil imaginable. Bathroom basics were on hand and, most important, in addition to those thoughtful considerations, the owner was on call to promptly and graciously attend to all our needs. We enjoyed blueberry picking and hiking in neighboring Dorset and a day at Bromley's Mountain Adventure Park. A supermarket and many restaurants from pizza, ice cream and sandwich shops to fine dining are in Manchester only 12 miles away. Alone, Littlebranch is a comfortable accommodation for a large group and, combined as a rental with the owner’s nearby Mettawee house, is a perfect location for a fairly good sized family reunion or relaxing vacation retreat. We, our children and their spouses and our grandchildren were thrilled with all that was offered. In our estimation, Littlebranch easily earned 5-Stars.
