Perfect setting for all family members, great for reunions, ladies' weekends, offers perfect mix of a tranquil environment, with restaurants and shopping in Manchester only minutes away. 10 mins to VT Summer Festival. Situated in Danby, Vermont, with Dorset Mountain on one side and the Green Mountain National Forest on the other, this property is surrounded by beautiful, rolling fields, woods, and farmland making it the perfect four-season family get away. Fall foliage is unsurpassed here, & seasonal activities abound. Environmentally-friendly accommodation. Dogs welcome.

This is a special house in a unique location. It is located in a spectacular Vermont setting. The pool is generally between 70 and 80 degrees, and is fabulous for year-round swimming and fun, especially for children.

Weather conditions can fluctuate rapidly as the house is located in a valley with tall mountains on two sides. For winter visitors, four wheel drive vehicles are recommended, but not required. You can access to multiple ski areas from this location.

Jeannie L, April 2016 - This home was the perfect place for a weekend in Vermont! The house was very clean upon arrival and we used the kitchen to prepare meals all weekend. The location has gorgeous views and is just a short drive from Manchester for restaurants, grocery stores, outlets, and more. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all felt at home for the weekend away. Would definitely return!

Suzanne F - Oct. 2015 - BEAUTIFUL, SPACIOUS PROPERTY .As a child I spent summers with my grandparent in Vermont. My children are born Floridians so before they become too old to travel with mom I wanted them to see the real Vermont. Just spectacular! I thought we might be too late for the changing leaves- but it was just perfect. Spacious well equipped home. We were a party of nine and home was more than enough. Plenty of things to do, SHOPPING, horseback riding, exploring- but also away from it all for privacy. The indoor pool was the icing on the cake for the kids. The owner Charles was great, very attentive throughout the reservation process and through our stay.

MY - Sept 2015 - Our third consecutive summer vacation at Mettawee was for two weeks rather than our usual one and provided more than double the relaxation. The wrap-around deck and patio offer a three-directional view as sun and shadow slow dance through the day. Favorites of ours: morning coffee on the deck as the rising sun chases away the eerily beautiful layers of fog from Green Mountain on the east and Dorset Mountain on the southwest; the sky from east to west as the sun sets; and the incredible stars at night, which included a shooting star this year and the sound of distant coyotes (seen only rarely, in the distance). Birds abound, including a very beautiful and very large hawk with banded tail and dark breast. And the humorous chipmunks . . . Solitude without isolation, indeed, with Danby sitting above Rt. 7, between Manchester and Rutland. We’ve been return renters at Mettawee since our first visit in the spring of 2011, and yet we continue to find nearby roads we have not yet explored. The house is all that is described on this and the Mettawee websites. The kitchen makes trying new recipes a breeze. And the treat of the indoor pool is multiplied by all the glass—from the pool, you can spy on the birds that take advantage of your absence from the patio to bathe (or frolic: they seem quite pleased) in the birdbath. We rent Mettawee to relax and swim and get lost on the maze of roads that offer surprises (and, in the spring and fall, hike the shorter trails): Mettawee is never disappointing. Great customer service, if ever needed.
