My husband and I are from Connecticut and retired to Vermont where we manage our rental property, enjoy the lovely surroundings, hike, snowboard and host loads of family for winter and summer sports.
Barbara and Ralph were lovely hosts. The pictures and descriptions do not do the place justice. Their place is beautiful and has all the comforts of home. They are so close to the village, as well as, the ski resorts. We would stay there again if they would have us. Thank you Both for a wonderful weekend.
We were looking for a close place to stay within driving distance of Sugarbush for a couples ski weekend, and could not be happier with our stay at Joslin Gardens. The suite is very clean and well taken care of with a kitchen stocked with every item you would need. It was so convenient to have the washer and dryer right in the suite so we didn't have to pack our wet bathing suits into our luggage. Barbara was extremely helpful in answering any and all questions that we had, and always got back to us right away. The amount of information that was provided to us was amazing. Full directions for everything ranging from the hot tub, to the cable box, so we never had to search for anything. The key in the lockbox was also extremely helpful allowing us to leave work on a Friday evening and arrive late without feeling like we were inconveniencing anyone by making them stay up late. Overall I would definitely recommend staying at Joslin Gardens if you are looking for a relaxing beautiful place to stay for an upcoming ski trip.
Joslin Gardens was a great retreat for me and my family. Fantastic views, close proximity to ski mountain and great accommodations. Would rent again for sure!
Overall our stay at Joslin Gardens was nice. The place was very clean, organized and comfortable. The only negative feedback we have is that the hot tub is kept at 80 degrees, when a normal hot tub is kept around 100. When it's 15 degrees outside, you don't want to get in a 80 degree hot tub. We did turn it up to heat up to 100, thinking we would get in the next morning and it was turned back to 80 degrees before we had the opportunity to get in. Also be aware that you are directly attached to the owners home, so the pictures and description are a bit deceiving in terms of thinking you have your private place with a hot tub.
Otherwise, it's very convenient for skiing and near by shopping and the property itself is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay.
We have been going to this area of Vermont for years & staying at B&B's, but now with a toddler in tow, found most B&B's & small inns do not allow small children.
Joslin Gardens was perfect for us! Beautiful home & property, very clean & a ton of space for 3-4 adults + kids!
Best parts: washer/dryer, large kitchen, hot tub (& robes!!), large bathroom w/ tub & separate shower, wi-fi service.
The owners even dug up sleds out of their basement for our son to use, everything was so nice!
We will be back!
