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!

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

This house did not disappoint. As soon as we walked in the door it felt like home. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the space, including the library, kitchen, grill, video games, workout space, wood stove and of course, the hot tub. Our kids, 10 & 7, loved everything about this home as well. We especially loved the privacy and beautiful views from every window. We were also taken by the town of Roxbury and the Roxbury Country Store. The detailed and easy to follow instructions provided were spot on. Many thanks to the Brace family for sharing this special property. We fell in love with VT all over again and hope to have the opportunity to rent this one of a kind place once again.

Quiet and well kept

Stayed here for a week with some friends for an annual ski trip and the property fit the bill. It had all the amenities needed after a hard day on the slopes.

Didn’t want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a small group of friends for a short ski weekend at Sugarbush. The house was incredibly comfortable and the owners were very welcoming. The owners did have very specific care instructions for the house but everything was communicated clearly and was easy to follow. The house itself is beautiful, spacious, with a well-stocked kitchen and comfortable beds with lots of linens. The hot tub is a lifesaver after a long day on the slopes and the wood burning stove is divine. Staying here was an absolute treat!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Roxbury was an awesome spot for a February ski weekend. Getting there from Boston was easy (3 hrs.) - and once you're there it's even easier to relax.

We traveled with 6 total people, and the house was the perfect size (with room to spare). The property was clean, warm, and most importantly, the hot tub was already up to temp when we got there! There's not much around, so the kitchen worked out great. We didn't try out the wood stove, but I'm sure that would have taken it to the next level.

The drive to Sugarbush was about 20 minutes - not bad!

Overall, highly recommend and hope to be back. The amenities far surpassed any of the other ski resort and area properties I looked at, and everything was easy and relaxing. Awesome stuff!

Perfect for Our Weekend Escape!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our long weekend getaway! It was spacious and also cozy, and fully stocked with kitchen gadgets and spices. We had no trouble getting to this secluded oasis, and it allowed us to have a very relaxing/re-energizing weekend. I would absolutely recommend this home to others, and stay there again myself. Every aspect of this home was beautifully put together, and it is obvious that the home owners put a lot of thought and care into creating this awesome atmosphere!

Prices & Availability

Ask Owner a Question

Additional pricing information

Cleaning Fee £135.67
Damage Insurance £74.62
Damage Deposit £376.85

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

  • 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
