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 was very helpful getting ready to arrive and while we were there. Apt was exactly as listed and VERY clean. Plenty of supplies to make our stay comfortable and nice warm heated floors. Drive to Sugarbush 15 minutes. Views and setting lovely typical Vermont. Highly recommend.
Sweet and welcoming hosts. Cleared a path for us to the hot tub (around the corner), and didn't get upset when we lost the key in a snow drift. (So sorry!!) Will be back!
We had a great stay at Barbara's place. The setting is gorgeous and the location is convenient to all of the adorable things Waitsfield has to offer. We were in town for a family wedding at the Skinner Barn, so the place was perfect. There were plenty of clean linens and shampoos and all of the essentials. I would stay again if back in the area.
The Stay in Barbaras Appartement was very very wonderful - a quiet place, with lot of place (it is an own appartement with a separate entrance), very clean, all things you need are there. The porch is gorgeous and the look in the night sky super! Barbara is a very friendly woman, and awomderful host - she helped us a lot with tips for hiking and shopping! A really good place to stay even for lnger time (we had only 3 days) - I would come back all time to have my holidays at Barbara's place.
A nice, quiet, private suite. We stayed here during the summer for a wedding at the Skinner Barn. The barn is within walking distance from the suite, which is wonderful. We never saw Barbara because we were so busy the whole weekend, but she was still able to make us feel welcome by emailing us to give us directions and to let us know we should check out the Waitsfield farmers' market on Saturday morning. All in all, we had a very comfortable stay here.
Barbara's place was everything that we expected and more. Beautiful scenery, green everywhere, lovely landscaping. The place has more than everything you need. And nothing better than a relaxing hot tub at the end of a long day. Thank you Barbara!
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.
