Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Manchester - Pete and Pat's Cabin

3 bedroom plus loft, two baths, 5 minutes from horse show and town

This is a beautiful log home. It has three bedrooms plus loft and two full bathrooms. It sleeps 10 comfortably. There are hardwood floors and cathedral ceilings around a gorgeous stone floor-to-ceiling fireplace. The kitchen is great and well stocked with updated appliances. There is a gas grill on the deck and stunning mountain views!

This is our family home that we very much enjoy using when we are not renting to guests. Because it's a log home, it has a lot of charm and Vermont 'warmth' to it. The logs and wood finishes throughout may have some aesthetics imperfections due to the aging of the logs, but we think this adds to the charm of the place.

Please come and relax. Enjoy the ski mountains (5 miles to Bromley), the horse show (5 minutes from the house in the summer) and all the amenities that the town has to offer including shopping, dining, and entertainment.

My Family and I took this Dog Friendly rental for a 3 month Season. We were not expecting a place that smelled of a kennel and looked like an abandoned ,outdated, poorly maintained cabin.We immediately that day informed the owner Patti however had a terrible response to our concerns and refused to listen.The result being we were cheated out of a weeks lease, our security, our pet deposit and accused of existing damage. Being our vacation we rouged it out and we vacated the residence after 4 days paying for a full season in advance+ The home was dirty, outdated, overpriced and unsafe. We had a squirrel infestation in the middle of the night, which attacked our small child. Leaks in the bathroom ceiling from shower upstairs.The Carpet was disgusting and old with tears (she blamed on my well trained, well traveled pooch). The kitchen was poorly stocked with a broken dishwasher + faucet along with sparsely stocked,old utensils. No covers on exposed wire outlets. Broken Furniture! Linens provided were so old they should have been thrown away, but we brought our own.The Chimney Flu is (or was) broken and they stuffed it with a quick fix solution of asbestos type filler , which didnt work and allowed in critters. The smoke was terrible and filled the home to a gasping effect.I guess luckily the 1 smoke detector didnt work so it didnt go off and drive us even more crazy. Even the laundry room was something out of a horror film with a bizarre and gross apartment attached to it. The "included plow service" never showed up until 2 days after we got there making a very unsafe condition and my 4x4 could not get up the driveway. List goes on. Seems the place had been neglected and the owner didnt care. We have rented for over 12 years and never experienced the poor management and gross conditions of this home. Looking at the reviews post our departure it seems she took our list and made some improvements for the tenants after us. Lucky for the next renters. We were told we'd receive our security deposit back in within 10 days and it's been since January with No reply since Feb and she's still renting it! I have nothing positive to say about this home, even the walls are stained with old water damage. As a seasoned renter I can say look elsewhere or lower your expectation. If you like camping indoors-this is the place for you. Again.-Renter Beware! I'm only giving it 1 star because it won't allow a 0 star rating Negative if possible! Gross Describes this Property Best!

Owner's Response: We had a very unfortunate experience with this tenant. This is the first and only bad experience since we've started renting this property. All of our other guests have been lovely and seem very happy with our home. We have a very high rate of returning guests. Our ski seasonal rentals prior to this one rented for three seasons in a row and would provide a reference. We have a repeat family for the month of July as well - who would also provide a reference. Please look at the other reviews both right before and again after the dates in question: (December 27th 2015 through early January 2016). These accusations are absolutely false. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to view the property.

Beautiful, Clean & Cozy Log Cabin in Manchester

  • 5 of 5

This lovely log cabin located less than 3 miles from downtown Manchester was a perfect spot for my family and I to spend the weekend! House was very clean, well decorated, and stocked with the essentials. Beds were comfortable, couch very cozy in front of the fire place. No cable, but if you bring some DVD's or AppleTV you'll be all set. WiFi worked well. Patti was great to communicate back and forth with, responded quickly to all inquiries.

Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!

Relaxed and close to town

  • 4 of 5

Log cabin was perfect for my family. The owner was responsive from beginning to end. We were able to bring our family dog which was a bonus. The house is about 7 minutes to town and about 20 minutes to Stratton.

It has a beautiful fireplace, but note the owner does not provide wood so you'll have to purchase from the local store. I enjoyed the openness of the house and it must be beautiful in the summer as well. The bed in the loft has no privacy since you'll have to pass it to get to the master's bedroom. It's great for children but not for couples looking for privacy.

Kitchen could use some updated utensils. We managed and cooked all weekend. No cable so we brought movies.

We had a great time. ++++

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous home. Cleanliness is most important to me when renting from homeaway and this house is clean! The kitchen had everything we needed and the house is very welcoming & comfotable. Our favorite part was the chimney. It really gives the place a warm cabin VT feel. You have to get your own wood which actually wasn't a big deal bc they sell it everywhere and it's cheep...3 bundles did the job for the weekend. The owner is very nice and helpful and we truly enjoyed our stay. My dog enjoyed walking along the dirt roads so we did have to go far for a peaceful night doggy walk. Town is close so we could keep running in to get supplies. The mountain isn't too far and the roads were clear. Perfect weekend.

Car: necessary

Each summer Manchester hosts an amazing international horse show. The house is only a couple of minutes from the show grounds. Additional activities include: walks in the woods, hikes, gulf, kayaking, river tubing, pond swimming, fishing, picnics, theater, and music festivals - the possibilities are endless.

If you like fine dining or family style, there are many chef owned and unique restaurants in town. How about pampering? Spas, yoga, massages, hair and nails; check out the many resort amenities in town that are open to the public. If shopping is your thing, there are outlet stores nestled in and among boutique shops and art galleries.

The town is so pretty! If you want to experience a bit of Old New England, head up to the village area where you can visit the Robert Todd Lincoln estate and then have a drink on the porch of the historic Equinox Hotel. After, take a walk along the gorgeous marble sidewalk and marvel at the mansions, some with old carriage houses all beautifully restored and maintained.

Manchester is close to the ski resorts that in the off-season offer golf, horseback riding, music, hiking, and the alpine slide among other activities.

Whether you want to relax in the beautiful home, or get out and visit the town, there is something for everyone. As the locals like to say, 'Relax, this is Vermont'.
