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!

Why Matthew and Rachel Brace chose Central Vermont / Sugarbush / Mad River Valley

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!

This couldn't have been more perfect for our family. It truly is a hidden gem. We had 7 adults 2 kids and a dog. The house was very clean, you could not tell that they allowed pets. The open floor plan with the large kitchen dining room and living allowed us to stay close but out of each others way. The kitchen was completely stocked with pots, pans and utensils allowing us to cook our big breakfast both mornings. Not only would I recommend this location to family and friends our family is already talking about returning! On a personal note the owner calls all of his rentals after they inquire about his property which I thought was more professional they just emails.

As always, my family had a wonderful stay at the Roxbury! Matt and Rachel went out of their way to make sure we had everything we need. It really feels like home every time we come to Vermont and stay here but with a few added perks, the hot tub and the beautiful Vermont scenery especially in the Fall are wonderful. Thanks for everything, hope to stay agin soon. Lori D.

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 family & friends stay at this place for a wedding just down the street at the Tennis Camp. There's really only enough beds for 8, but we made do. The owners are super helpful and very easy to work with. They left us plenty of towels and stuff for our group. The kitchen and bar are well-stocked. It was the perfect place to have a large gathering. Some of us hadn't seen each in years so we really wanted to have a place where we could all sit around, drink wine, and catch up! If that's what you're looking for, this is an awesome place to stray!

Owner's Response: Great guests! These guys were awsome! They treated our house like it was theirs and that's all you could ask for in a guest. These guys really understood the vibe we are going for with this property. Nothing out of place and the house was nice and clean when they left. Come back anytime folks!

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

Our family including two grade schoolers and our dog Charley really enjoyed our stay at The Roxbury. We loved the convenient access for touring the areas of Waitsfield, Warren, Waterbury, Stowe, and Montpelier. The best part of every day though was coming back to Roxbury to our home away from home. While touring every day we would pick up provisions to prepare meals back at the house. We would then come back tired from touring and fire up the grill, pour some beers and cocktails, and just cook and relax. The house is set a long way away from the road and any other houses so you have complete privacy and quiet. The only sounds you hear may be the birds or an occasional train whistle running way down in town along the bottom of the hill. The WiFi works great, the Satellite TV is great. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a great Weber gas grill. It is only a minute or two to the general store in Roxbury, about 10 minutes to the incredible East Warren Market, 15 minutes to the famous Warren Market, 20 minutes to Waitsfield. We hope to come back to the area again and we would not want to stay anywhere else.

A great property with everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

The Roxbury is a great house tucked away in central Vermont. The kitchen, decks, hot tub, and charm of the house will make any stay comfortable and relaxing. While our group was in the area for work, it was a great place to come back to after long days. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need for great meals, including a grill located on the deck right outside the kitchen. The living room space is comfortable, with puffy couches and great recliners. Wifi and satellite TV ensure you won't miss the comforts of home. The hot tub is huge and just what you need after a long day! Sometimes it's the little things that add convenience - like a well equipped home gym, washer and dryer, and multiple bathrooms. In the event of a power outage (we had a storm pass through our first night), they even have a generator ready power all the essentials (yep - even TV and wifi!).

Matt and Rachel are awesome and very responsive! They provide tons of linens, full access to the bar, and answers to anything you might need! Thanks for a great stay!

I rented Matt and Rachel's home this past weekend, as I was in town for a family wedding. I wish I could have stayed longer - the home was large, very well maintained, comfortable, and situated in a beautiful, quiet spot in the Vermont countryside. There's plenty of space for a family to make themselves at home here, and it's proximate to all the attractions in the area - skiing, hiking, the works. I brought my family dogs with me, and they had a great time, too - the house stayed nice and cool even during the heat of the Summer afternoon.

I hope to be back in the area someday soon, and whenever that happens, we'll absolutely be looking into booking this home again. Cannot recommend this one highly enough.
