Harvey was a very gracious host. We went out and came back to a bottle of wine left for our anniversary. Everything was well stocked, and Harvey called to see if he could pick anything up while he was in town.
We loved the house and the 2 person hot tub was perfect. I would definitely go back.
We stayed with a group of 8. We all had our own rooms, and the house was very clean upon our arrival.
Harvey is a fantastic host. He is extremely communicative over email, provides wonderful suggestions of local points of interest (especially restaurants), and, overall, wants to make sure you and your group are having a fantastic stay. He would call once a day to just check on how we were doing and if he could run any errands for us while we were at the mountain. Extremely thoughtful, but not intrusive in any way. I really appreciated his extra level of hosting.
The house had really everything. The kitchen is completely stocked with different gadgets and cooking needs. There is really no need to bring anything from home. Additionally, there are two useable refrigerators, which was perfect for storing food and beverages. Also, Harvey just installed a fantastic new stove/range. As for the beds, they are completely. Finally, the hot tub is perfect for two people and is a life saver after a hard day of skiing.
I can't wait to get back up to Waitsfield and Sugarbush. As soon as I do, rest assure that we will be booking with Harvey.
I have stayed in many Air BnB locations, but Harvey is tops for his high level of attention to detail, responsiveness, and friendliness. His guesthouse was perfect for me and my siblings to gather for a ski weekend in a warm and cozy environment. It is so well located - 15 minutes to Sugarbush, 3 minutes to Waitsfield - and the house is equipped with everything we needed. Harvey even offered to get us groceries and gave us great tips on local area restaurants. We loved the big dining room table, all the mattresses seemed new and were very comfortable, ample heat, gorgeous views and the hot tub was a welcome treat after a hard day of skiing. We'll be back!!
Thanks again for the great review. We are going to follow up on your reccomendations (they are greatly appreciated) We will find some nice full drapes to block the draft. We will also put some additional directions regarding the hot tub (Do you know i have never once been in this tub - and this is our third season) I was wondering if you went (and enjoyed) Peasant. They do have very good food.
Next time you are in the area try Sarduccis in Montpelier.
Staying at Harvey's home was a pleasure. We stayed as two families and there was plenty of space for parents and children. The property is located very conveniently (15-20 minutes) to Sugarbush, and this served as a perfect location for skiing over the long weekend.
Harvey as the host was incredibly responsive ahead of time and during the entire stay. He asked us in advance if we wanted the refrigerator stocked with anything or if we needed any groceries. On arrival, he gave us a guided tour of the home and offered places to visit in the area. We had a snowstorm and he actually had cleaned the snow off of our cars by morning! The driveway was plowed before 8am, allowing us to leave safely and make it to Sugarbush.
Overall, this is a very nice home that we would be delighted to return in the future!
Farouc, It was a pleasure hosting your family and friends. You truly have a lovely family. Myriam and I are so glad that you were able to have good snow and see some of the local sights (American Flatbread etc). We would love to host you again. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you when you return.
Harvey was very welcoming. The house was well equipped with anything you would need. We were in Waitsfield for a wedding with 6 of us. There was plenty of room. It would be great for a ski vacation!
We very much enjoyed our stay at Harvey's place in Vermont. First and foremost, Harvey is an excellent host. He was very welcoming and repeatedly went out of his way to make sure that we had everything we needed. He was very responsive to email and messages before and during our visit. He really went above and beyond what was expected by making sure the kitchen was stocked with basics before we arrived, offering help with the kids, and he even bought a slow cooker for us to use during our stay!
We had more than enough room in the house for our group of four adults, two toddlers, and two babies. I'm sure the house could easily accommodate a larger group of adults as there were several beds, couches, and pull outs. We enjoyed being able to use the multiple living spaces upstairs and downstairs to split up and wind the kids down at night. It should also be mentioned that the location was very convenient to Waitsfield.
All in all, we had a great experience and would consider staying at Harvery's place again.
I enjoyed having Mari and her family stay with us in Vt. We would certainly welcome her again. Mari did provide me with a couple of suggestions which included making better use of the downstairs space. We will be completing work on the downtairs space before the end of January. This will include a completely separate second downstairs bedroom (with dressing area) as well as a separate back entry that will have a mudroom and equipment area. Thanks Mari for your suggestions. They will help our future guests to have even more space and be more comfortable. We always welcome suggestions from our guests and always try to make the guest house even more comfortable for them.
The place is very spacious, clean and has amazing views! The kitchen is well-stocked with dried foods and condiments. Harvey, the owner, is very easy to get along with, helpful and accommodating! He makes sure that we are comfortable and has everything we need! He made us feel at home from the moment we pulled over in his driveway up to the last day we were packing up and getting ready to leave!
Harvey's guesthouse is in Waitsfield, VT. There are so many places to visit in the nearby towns (Stowe, Burlington, Warren, Montpelier). All below 1-hour driving distance! There were some decent restaurants too: Dutch Pancake Café (amazing pancakes at the Grey Fox Inn in Stowe) and Michael's on the Hill (classy restaurant with local cuisine in Waterbury-Stowe). Harvey's location is just perfectly convenient to see (some) beautiful towns of Vermont!
I HIGHLY recommend this place. The property and the owner are topnotch!
