“Beautiful secluded cabin in a quiet area near Stowe” We were looking for a place to get away from it all, and First Bend River Cabin was perfect for our long weekend break. The cabin was very clean, comfortable and fully equipped, with fantastic natural light in the kitchen and a lovely view from the living room and patio over the river and countryside. We really enjoyed the hot tub, which was in pristine condition, and the great collection of music and reading material. The cabin is on a backwoods road which is quite accessible but extremely quiet and peaceful. It's the sort of place to go if you are tired of the city and need to unwind. However, Stowe is only 15 mins or so away, and there is plenty to do in the area. As with everyone we've met in Vermont, the people at Stowe Country Homes are extremely friendly and helpful, and the service we received was excellent. We would go back in a heartbeat!
“We had a great time.” This house is very well maintained and very clean. The pretty, clean lake is small, but that worked for us. It's a beautiful area and the house is on the end of dirt road. Not isolated, as there are other houses around, but safe enough for the kids to play in the backyard and take walks on the road. We spent most of the time out in the canoe and rowboat. There are a few bigger lakes and a state park within a few minutes for more activities, too. Also, the house is within about 20 minutes to Weston, Londonderry, Killington. We would stay again.
“Beyond expectations” My family and I had an excellent time at Jay Peak. This unit was spotless and everything is high quality. You simply can not ask for a better location to ski in and off the mountain. We are definitely going to be renting this unit again.
“Norwich University graduation/residency week” It was great to have our own place for the kids to play during the day while I was doing residency week activities without worrying about them disturbing others. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The only negative really was the smoke detector went off every time we used the stove/oven. I think the main reason for this is the smoke detector is only 6' away from the stove and between the stove and the windows. The exhaust fan did not work over our stove either. Other than those minor inconveniences we were very happy with our stay and plan to return again some time in the future.
“great layout, classic ski condo” We enjoyed this condominium. It has a great layout for extended family and gives a classic ski feel. It is not the fanciest place, but if a nice time in front of the fire in a close and convient condo is what you want than this is great.
