5/5 Excellent

    Amazing Views! Amazing outdoor space large enough for family & friends.

    The property was beautiful with lots of space for family & friends to gather. The views of the river were amazing. When we weren't on the water, we spent the majority of our stay out on the back deck. It was really quite spectacular. The walk to the river is not for the faint of heart. Lots of stairs, many of which were not finished and a little scary, to be honest. But, the beach at he bottom made it worth the trek. The water access with our 28ft pontoon boat was so convenient! The house was comfortable with a well equipped kitchen with nice appliances. The bathrooms were clean with fixtures, etc. We would definitely stay here again!

    4/5 Good

      Great location and awesome views

      Great location and beautiful views. Plenty of space. Negative - the place smelled very musty during our stay. We tried to air it out - that helped a little. But, still a musty smell.

      5/5 Excellent

        Very Private and Peaceful Home

        Celebrating my husband's 60th birthday, this was the perfect location for our family to get together. The house is very clean and modern. The large deck overlooks the water and the magnificent sunsets. My family members enjoyed the kayak, canoe, and fishing, and we all enjoyed relaxing by the the gas fire pit. As stated in other reviews, there is a steep walk down to the water. Take it slow, and you'll be fine. The backyard is also steep, so suggest that young kids play in the side yard where it is more level. There is a bonus room next to the master bedroom on the upper level. We put our grandson's pack and play in this room....A pull out couch or another bed in this room would also be useful. Note: There is a crib in the basement, but it wasn't assembled. Suggest bringing a bassinet or pack and play for young children. As stated in another review, the basement level smelled musty the first day, so we opened up windows to air it out. A/C is on the first and second floors only. We had great weather so we went apple picking, went to a brewery, and went on a river cruise. If you are looking for peace and quiet with great views, look no further.

          Fantastic view but rooms not all usable

          Myself and two friends, along with their 3 grade school age kids were looking to have a week away and we wanted to be on the water. We found this house that looked to fit the bill. When we arrived we were indeed impressed with the fantastic view of the Connecticut River from the gorgeous deck and we were down at the river almost every day enjoying the cool water and eagles flying overhead. However, we were expecting to have use of 4 bedrooms and two baths which would have been plenty of space for our group. 3 of the bedrooms are in the basement with a small sitting room equipped with a TV which is nice to have as an alternative to the upstairs living room. When we opened the door leading to the basement a very strong musty smell emanated from that area so the moms did not want to stay in those rooms with their kids forcing them to all pile into the master bedroom on the top floor (I stayed in the basement even though the smell wasn't great). The master bedroom room does have a king sized bed so two adults can share it but who wants to spend their vacation sharing a room with another adult and 3 kids? They had to purchase an air mattress to provide a bed for the kids and also purchased new sheets for the bed as the ones that were provided were pilling and felt like sand on your body. Needless to say, my friends didn't sleep well on this trip even though the rest of the house was very nice. The main floor has a living room and dining room with a nice big table we would eat dinner at and play games. The deck is absolutely wonderful and we spent many evenings out there enjoying the firepit and the mornings were mild and pleasant before the sun came over to that side of the house. I would also suggest that you bring your own inner tubes. We found those to be the best to use on the river. There is one kayak and it is a one-person as well as a rowboat although we had to use the kayak oars as the rowboat oars were missing or broken.

          5/5 Excellent

            Awesome view! Great house. Plenty of room.

            First off the view is fantastic! Mornings and evenings on the spectacular deck overlooking the river were the best. The house has plenty of room for guests to tuck away, yet the main floor is open for social interactions. The kitchen is modern and very nice with all amenities you’d need. Dean is very responsive and easy to get a hold of if needed or have any questions. The driveway is long which makes the house more secluded, away from anyone else. You feel as if you’re all alone with your guests which was great. The river is a climb to get to, but the young ones don’t seem to mind at all. There are lots of boats on the river on the weekend especially so watching from the deck was preferred by us anyway. Thanks Dean and we’ll be back!
