Our stay at Country Retreat was more than a retreat. It was our salvation. We asked Michael to begin or stay 2 days early. He had the entire community get the house ready for us. Each and every time I called or texted him, he responded immediately with such kindness. The house is beyond wonderful. The views, the beds, kitchen, the openness of his home are more than what is described on the website. Most importantly, although Michael wasn't here during our stay, he is truly a gentle man that provided us his home in a way that we will never be able to repay him for. This spot on on Eagle Ridge is magical.
Michael's home is on a beautiful mountain top with stunning views. He was very friendly and welcoming. The room is upstairs above the living room and has it's own private bath. Unfortunately I found the bed too soft for my husband and me to sleep comfortably, so we stayed only one night instead of two.
We had a lovely week here at Michael's place. The overall location is really convenient - you're an hour or two at most from anything in Vermont or NH you'd want to do - and the specific location at his house is just gorgeous. We were treated to a lovely starry night our first evening, and the views of the trees were great. Michael was also a welcoming host. We had a great time and may need to be back in the future!
A beautiful location, lovely interior space and a warm, easygoing host. My daughter and I stayed here after hearing about its proximity to Dartmouth, where she was playing in a weekend sporting event. We arrived late, due to traffic, and Michael was very accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time at the house, taking in the view!
Great Stay. beautiful home. Wonderful host!!
From the first communication via airbnb Mike was responsive, kind and clear. He was right on time for our meet up at the house. His welcome was warm and honest and his hospitality throughout my stay was perfect. Mike was attentive enough to take care of any of my requests (ie: extra blanket) but relaxed and easy going enough for us to chill on our own. We always had interesting and fun conversations.
The house is situated on a beautiful, private, spacious property. Lovely, expansive view. Privacy from neighbors. And if you're still enough deer will come pay you a visit :-) The house has an elegant and yet organic design. Tastefully furnished and super comfortable and cozy. Mike lit a wonderful fire in the fireplace for a cooler evening. The land has a peaceful and embracing energy. It felt like a mini retreat. My father lives in the area and I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. I'll be back!!
We didn't get to meet Michael in person since he was on vacation but we had a very good time at his beautiful and spacious house! We had breakfast on the porch and looked over the beautiful Vermont mountains. We would highly recommend Michael's home! Thank you for being so uncomplicated and hosting us without knowing us!
Me and my girlfriend came out to stay here for a couple nights for our anniversary and it was the most amazing trip thanks to Michael. Contacting him on the way to San Francisco and when we got there was simple and he was always available via text and call.
The place was more than we could have hoped for. The kitchen has everything you need and more and the living room was kept neat and clean. The bathroom is upstairs and was very clean and the shower is super nice as well. The bed was so comfortable and TV upstairs also has cable. Everything in the house is super modern and beautiful.
Michael was always available and we talked with him daily regarding any questions we had or even just to talk about what we had planned or what we were up to. He recommend many restaurants and awesome places in SF and made our stay the best it could have been. He was very accommodating with our traveling times and genuinely cared about how much fun we were having. We still talk with him and we plan to come back very soon to hang out with him in SF. He's an awesome guy and was always checking in to see what he could do to make our trip even better.
I highly recommend this place, it's a home away from home.
Our stay at Michaels place was an absolute delight. The cottage is on a little secluded backstreet right in the heart of the Marina/Cow Hollow district and is literally steps to both Union and Chestnut streets which are packed with restaurants, pubs, and boutique shops. The apartment was fresh and clean when we arrived, checkin couldn't have been easier, and Michael was very reachable as well as accommodating to our plans. If we were neighbors, I would no doubt call him a friend, as his texts were congenial, funny, and he was full of recommendations and (website hidden) about the area. The unit has a nice little private garden in front to sit and eat, and grill, and we also met and thoroughly enjoyed his neighbors and shared a few glasses of wine. I would definitely stay at Michaels again and recommend his place to anyone looking for a nice private stay while still in the midst of all the action. Thanks so much for having us!!!
I had an incredible time! Me and my best friend were in the city for pride weekend. So happy I found Michael's little tucked away paradise in cow hollow. It was my first time using airbnb, and he made it so simple. He it was always so easy to communicate with him. He answered all my questions quick. And was actually interested in how my stay was going. Also his neighbor/business Partner was so helpful and friendly as well. The house very comfortable. Loved the style nice, clean and simple. I will definitely inquire again for my next trip to San Francisco. Thanks again Michael!
MIchael was a wonderful guest and left our cottage in beautiful shape. He seemed to really enjoy our cottage and grounds and the location fit his needs perfectly. We were delighted to have him stay and we hope he returns next year. Thank you Mike!
