This home is perfect for a large group with the added privacy of bathrooms for each room. It is very spacious and warm. The bedroom off the dining room is perfect for someone looking for a little more quiet space. The home is very close to Butternut Ski which was our destinati…

The house is beautiful, comfortable and offers a sense of being home away from home. Doug, the owner, is truly a pleasure to make arrangements with and is very welcoming. My company reserved this house to lodge a few NY’ers and we do it again in a heartbeat. Can’t wait till the…

We cannot rate this place high enough. The house is beautiful, it is extremely well stocked, the beds are so comfortable, there were so much room to spread out. The house itself had so much history, but the owners are just incredible. Doug built a bonfire for us, set up the firep…

We, a group of four families, 8 adults and 7 kids (6 years to 14 years) had a wonderful time at Doug’s house. The history, plus the free history tour provided by Doug, was greatly valued by all. The area around the house is very quiet and private but just 15 minutes (or less) f…

We spent two nights here for our son's wedding, which was being held just 2 miles down the road at the beautiful Gedney Farm. This lovely and historic home exceeded our expectations. It's located on a gorgeously maintained property and is immaculately clean. We particularly enj…

Ten of us spent the weekend here to attend a wedding at Gedney Farm. The home is huge and comfortable. Each of the 6 bedrooms has its own bathroom which is a huge plus. The home is clean and the kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook. The hosts are very friendly and …

He drove to camp and picked up my sister and drove her to the house. That was above and beyond anything we would have asked him to do. He also stopped by and gave us the history of his magnificent home. It was fascinating. Finally, on the last evening, he surprised us with ho…

Response from Doug:
As on-site property owners, living in a separate backyard cottage when guests rent our home, it is our pleasure to assist our guests in any way we can, and make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, without being intrusive. And thank you Cathy for pointing out things we can improve upon. We will prepare a binder for our guests, and keep it current, to provide information about our area, which has so much to offer all year long. And apologies for not advising you about the drop in water pressure in the third floor Loft Room shower when many of the remaining 5 bathroom showers or bathtubs are being used at the same time. As is common in our area, we are on our own private water well. While our water is great mountain spring water right out of our faucets, we cannot achieve the higher level of water pressure that most guests are used to on their public town water lines. Going forward, we will make sure that guests are advised about the optimal use of showers and bathtubs, and the need to coordinate how many showers are in use at the same time, in order to provide sufficient water pressure to all of our guests, particularly in the Loft Room shower. And we do have a "hot water on demand" system, so no one needs to worry about running out of hot water. Again, thank you, we do appreciate all feedback, so we can continue to improve our guest experience.
