Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is so special- perfectly updated but maintaining the rustic touches. We stayed here with two other families for a ski vacation and the setup upstairs was perfect for three couples to have private space. We hope to come back in the summer and experience the pool on a hiking vacation.

Another great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting this house for years - the recent upgrade to the bathrooms and kitchen are a great addition - we stayed for 3 nights over Columbus Day weekend - 4 families with kids and a couple small dogs - it is amazing how easily this house accommodates 11 people (plus 1 baby and 1 toddler who don't really count as people) - very spacious - everything works well (plumbing, kitchen, fireplace with LOADS of wood) - kids love the hot tub - leaves were popping in the distance - we'll be back again for skiing, or summer swims, or spring walks, or autumn leaves. Thanks, Amsden House!

Loved the house, the pool, the hot tub, the view and the lively gift basket the caretaker left us!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this beautiful home and it's many bedrooms and spacious living area! So enjoyed the area especially zip lining at Okemo, an amazing dinner at So Lo Farmhouse, a play at the Weston Playhouse and a visit to nearby Woodstock! We plan to return to charming Amsden House again and again!

What a wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just fabulous! We rented it in the area of my son's wedding. It was perfect for our needs. All the amenities we needed. We loved family time in front of the fireplace. It was very clean and well cared for. The hot tub and pool were a big hit. The view from the screened in porch was breathtaking. We would definitely rent again. Highly recommend! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property!

A unique and wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (kids 7 and 14) and have rented a number of getaway New England places in recent years, but this has been by far our favorite. I want to join the chorus of praise on this review page to highly recommend this very special place. The combination of the beautiful old house (with tasteful modern amenities), spacious, peaceful setting, mountain view, and swimming pool with hot tub, make this a wonderful experience. We all love this place and our kids always ask about going back. We spent a week here this past August, which was our third stay, and I'm sure we'll be back. The owners are very friendly and responsive. I definitely recommend the Amsden House!

Delightful Family get away.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family vacation at this property. Upon arrival we received a gift basket full of special local treats...yum! The pool was the highlight for us and it was just steps away from the house, which made it easy to get out and enjoy a relaxing swim with a lovely view. Our family of 5 found the house comfortable . Our youngest is 17 years old, so there were no worries regarding pool safety. The house is in a remote setting, which is exactly what we wanted. The grounds were well managed, and the care takers very friendly (father and daughter team that only came once during our stay). The closet grocery store is about 20 minutes away. We took a few small day trips to nearby towns. These side trips were indeed fun, but we were always glad to get back to the house! Some members of our family took a hike up a near by mountain trail, they loved it!

I would make 2 tiny suggestions. The house could use some more fans as it is not air conditioned and we did have some 90+ temperatures during our stay. I also would like to see an bit more lighting options. The house has a lodge feel to it, which is great, but it would have been helpful to have more light to do things like puzzles or games.

Without question, we would stay here again! In fact, I am already dreaming about our next visit of this delightful home away from home.
