fantastic house. Worked well for several couples - lovely setting. Very comfortable.
Great house but poorly managed & maintained
I booked this house for the long weekend of President's day for a total of 12 adults. On the listing, the owner indicated that the house sleeps 12 - he also had a bed breakdown - but once I booked it, he told me that there are beds only for 10 people and he will provide two air mattresses and bedding. I pointed that on the listing he indicates 12 and explains how many beds each room has and he said "this is the first time this has been brought to his attention". I requested, since the air mattress is not as comfortable as the bed to have a late check out. I never got a response.
A few hours before our arrival he emailed me saying that the dish washer is not working and expressed his appologies. We arrived at the property on Friday night (Sat morning) at 2:30am, after a 5 hour drive from NY and discovered that there were no air mattresses in the house. Also, the heating was off and the temperature outside was 15F. I immediately started calling, texting and leaving voice mails on his phone. He showed up at 5:15am, we had a intense conversation and we requested to refund us the first nights fee as the house was not prepared to sleep 12 people, it was freezing cold and we were all awake waiting for him. He responded saying that he saw 3 people sleeping sited on the sofa, so we already had a solution for the night (!) and then he suggested that if we don't like it, he can return all the amount in cash and we should leave the house immediately (to note that it was 5:30am).
He brought an air mattress and a spring mattress, placed them on the floor and brought sheets and small blankets for the people to cover. We ended up going to sleep at 6:30am realising that the sheets on the beds were not clean. The next morning, under the sun's light we saw the condition the house was. Toilets with urine stains, dead flies in the bathroom and mice droppings at the window sill of the foyer. Also, the air mattress had a hole, so my friend basically slept on the floor.
After missing a day of skiing and doing the basic household for hygiene purposes, we tried to enjoy the house as much as possible. Its in a great location and has amazing potential, but it was not in a state to accommodate people. The last day, on our way out, we waited for Donald (the owner) to have a second round of discussion and request a full refund for the first night. He refunded only 25%.
Please also refer to the several reviews below this one. Unfortunately this has been posted through an attempt of extortion. After a 3 am arrival Elena verbally threatened, "We will post a bad review if you do not give us a refund for the first night".
HomeAway will not delete a review unless the extortion is written.
Great weekend stay
We very much enjoyed our stay in Central Vermont. Owner was attentive and easy to get in touch with. House was clean and well appointed. The Great room is really cool but could use so more comfortable furniture for hanging out.
arrived in early eve after driving through blowing snow to a warm inviting retreat.
wood stove was wonderful and made everything feel warmer!
Entertained extended family on Sat and had a really great day in Brandon!
Lovely historic, well preserved home right near Lake Dunmore.
This is a beautiful, well cared for home with all the amenities: well stocked kitchen, nice bathrooms, good linens, beautiful back yard, etc. Donald was very accommodating and easy to work with - answered any questions we had during our stay right away. Great spot to stay for Lake Dunmore activities or a visit to Middlebury (only 20 minute drive).
Perfect for a "reunion" of "friends"
"Far Enough" was the perfect spot for a much-anticipated and compulsively organized get-together of now middle-aged former junior-year-abroad classmates (we bonded big-time during a life-altering year together in the South of France, in the Go-Go 80's, totally and for sure). The house was big enough to lodge the seven of us very comfortably, with a variety of options for sleeping arrangements and three full baths. The kitchen was spacious and fully functional and the dining table plenty big enough to accommodate all seven of us. The house is in excellent repair, newly renovated but not overly so-- i.e. still a little funky (in a good way) and undeniably charming. Perhaps best of all, it was completely private and perfectly quiet (one friend said she got the best nights' sleep she had had in years). We gathered on the columned porch for cocktail hour (rosé from our beloved Provence, of course), grilled steaks and chicken in the backyard, and had late-night soul-baring conversations in the baronial living room with the coffered ceiling and grand staircase. Just a quick little drive down to Bristol for fresh-baked croissants from Gourmet Provence first thing in the morning and a fabulous last-night dinner at Café Provence. And great antique/art gallery shopping in both Bristol and Middlebury. To top it all off, Donald was so easy and pleasant to work with-- the entire process was a breeze. We would love to do it all again! Highly recommended!
