About The Owner

We are a family of four (with two grown daughters) now spread between California and Florida, though we raised our children in Boston with summers in our Vermont house. Having retired to Florida, the house does not get as much use, and we decided it was time to share our special home on the Connecticut River with others!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1970

Why The Owner chose Vermont

Within easy reach of Boston, the setting was perfect for a peaceful weekend out of the city. With small children, the ability to let them roam the woods and river was priceless, while the river sports, hiking and tennis proved relaxing for adults as well.

What makes this cabin unique

A morning swim in the river, when the water is like glass and the birds are out, followed by coffee on the porch, is the perfect summer morning.

Foliage season is spectacular in this area, with the woods surrounding the house ablaze with color. Crisp morning hikes with leaves underfoot is a fall treat - try to take in the fall colors from the lookout point at the top of Chamberlin Mt, a 45 minute hike you can start from the front door!

Peaceful, relaxing, quiet with plenty to do!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time together at this well-equipped house! After traveling from South Alabama, we wanted a week to relax while escaping the August heat. This house was perfect me, my husband, our 3 year old and my parents. Everyone had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy solitude. Or we could easily gather at one of the 4 large tables (2 inside, 2 on porches). The kitchen has everything you could possible need and good quality. (Not always the case in my experience with renting vacation homes)

In addition to the spacious home, we enjoyed the amenities of the community including the beach (complete with chairs and a floating dock) and the community center (my almost 3 year loved the foosball). And the best part was that it was a quick, easy walk through the woods!

Liz is prompt and thorough with her communication. The decor is warm and inviting and comfortable. My mom and I had a fit over the chairs with the soft leather arms. Yummy :)

We hope to return! Thank you for sharing your home, Liz!

Serene Escape from Reality!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was absolutely wonderful. There was plenty of room for 6 adults and the views were astounding. Very peaceful and quiet. We couldn't have asked for a better week off from reality!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our home! There is usually a screen door to the porch - we removed it to have it re-screened and should be installing it again shortly!

Serene and scenic

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us rented the house while on a foliage vacation. This was the perfect house for us. Plenty of room and very comfortable. Off the beaten path it was a very quiet retreat. The scenery was spectacular! The trees were in full color and the view from the deck was breathtaking. We enjoyed our stay very much. House was clean and well stocked for our needs. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Happy times!

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of ten friends, had a great time staying at this place, which in addition to a beautiful view on the Connecticut river, has access to a community sand beach with plenty of beach chairs and kayaks. The house is very clean and well maintained. We were able to seat ten people at the dinner table and celebrated the last days of summer eating quality meat prepared on the outdoor grill. Unfortunately, we had only booked for two nights...

Best vacation property I've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my family and I have stayed at this lovely house. It is so perfect for us -- 4 adults and 2 children. We all enjoyed swimming, boating, tennis, hiking, cooking, eating, fishing, reading, talking, and just generally relaxing at Liz's house. The area is beautiful, the view is amazing, the river is a source of tranquility and fun. Unlike most rental houses, the kitchen, though small, is very well-equipped. We love it!!
