About Matthew and Rachel Brace

Matt and Rachel have been living in Vermont full time since 2003. We purchased this home in 2005 and it has been a labor of love to fix it up over the past 10 years. We relocated to Concord, MA and have opened up The Roxbury for rent. We hope that people wishing to have the true Vermont Experience will check it out!

Matthew and Rachel Brace purchased this house in 2005

Why Matthew and Rachel Brace chose Roxbury

The Roxbury is simply a house with character! It is a huge contemporary ski house built in 1972. Great for dinner parties, spending time with friends and family relaxing on the couch in front of a burning fire in the winter or on one of the many decks during the summer. We are located close enough to Sugarbush to make it a steal but far enough away to make it a real getaway. There are many times we both stop and take a moment to look around at this house - we are very lucky to have found this bit of heaven in Vermont.

We are 8 minutes from Norwich University, a 15-20 minute ride over a scenic mountain road to the Mad River Valley/Sugarbush area and 25 minutes from downtown Montpelier. Beautiful scenery surrounds us!

What makes this house unique

Many cozy nooks to spend by yourself or with another. Quiet location with many trees but plenty of sun to relax on the deck too. Central location to the Warren/Waitsfield/Sugarbush /Norwich University area but also only 25 minutes from Montpelier.

Guests have access to all Vermont has to offer from skiing (downhill and cross country), hiking, biking, swimming, sightseeing, eating, relaxing and more!

great escape, wonderful place and beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our time at the Roxbury. It is a very pretty yet comfortable house with all the amenities you could ask for. So quiet and peaceful. I recommend it 100%. Would love to go back some time.

Amazingly Cozy Ski House with Perfect Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Matthew and his wife were the perfect VRBO hosts. They kept great communication with us throughout our stay and were always very quick to respond to any questions we had. The house is very nicely decorated and the fireplace as well as hot tub are perfect additions to this cozy ski house. Less than a 20 minute drive to Sugarbush made it very easy for us to pop back and forth for skiing throughout the weekend. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to be back to stay in the future! Thanks again Matthew!

Amazing Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

I went up to Vermont to ski Sugarbush. I ended up staying here, because it was one of the few properties in the area that allow dogs. It was a great experience. The weekend we went, bombogensis hit the east coast, and we ended up spending far more time in the house.

The downstairs is fantastic for hanging out as a group. Couches are really nice, and the bar area set up is fantastic. Beds and bedrooms are nice, and the house is well designed and cute. It is set at the end of a small street. Very picturesque and private.

I had a great stay, and if I ever ski sugar bush again, I'll probably stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for being great guests! You were unlucky enough to enjoy our place during a rare deep freeze in December! We usually see this kind of weather in January and usually not so sustained. I am actually at the house right now keeping the stove cranked and working on that master drain. You guys got the full VT experience! Thank you for being cool folks and for the nice review! You guys are welcome anytime at the same rate.

Cozy VT home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at The Roxbury over Thanksgiving week. The house is cozy and rustic yet very well-appointed and not lacking in modern amenities. It comfortably slept all our family and provided ample space and a great kitchen for our Thanksgiving dinner. We had a great time.

Excellent experience!

We have stayed at the Roxbury several times and have always had a wonderful experience. It is a little secluded for privacy but close to so many attractions. Thanks again Matt and Rachel!

We allow dogs because we are dog owners ourselves. However, we ask that you pick after your pet!! Unless your pet goes into the woods - we expect ALL waste to be picked up. It is not acceptable to allow your pet to go all over the lawn and/or driveway. You will not receive all of your deposit back if you do not clean up after your pet!

Please tell us a bit about yourself and your party when you do a request for booking. We like to know who our potential guests are ... where they are coming from, how many people, ages, etc. We allow a maximum capacity of 8 adults. If there are additional guests (i.e. children), we are happy to discuss. However, we are very reluctant to agree to 10+ adults as we do not want people sleeping on floors or our furniture. If you are looking to have 20 of your closest friends come for a weekend slumber party - this is not the place for you.

We do have security cameras OUTSIDE only. This is to maintain the security of our property (i.e to see who is entering and leaving while the house is unoccupied, etc.) and is also for the protection of our guests. However, please be advised that if any unauthorized additional guests or animals occur (for example, 6 renters are due to arrive and 12 cars show up), you will be charged an additional $100/per night per guest and/or animal and be at risk for removal from our house as this constitutes breaking our rental agreement. So, please, just don't do it. We ask that you respect our house and our rules and we will respect your privacy and your time away in Vermont.

Owner's Cancellation Policy
