A cozy cottage by the Battenkill River
We loved our Christmas getaway to this small and comfortable riverside house with our small dogs and our 25 year old daughter. The house has easy access to both Manchester and Manchester Depot but is in a quiet area abot 2 minutes from The Equinox Hotel. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to make great meals. We spent a lot of time in the room with the wood stove and were toasty warm. 3 of our daughter's friends came up[ for a couple of days to ski and the two bathrooms came in handy. The dining table has bench seats and after dinner we spent each night playing games and having a good time. For outdoor activities, Bromley is10 minutes away, Stratton 25 minutes, and Killington just an hour. We also hiked two trails (Prospect Rock and Lye Brook Falls) which are with 10 minutes of the house. We (my wife and daughter) visited a bunch of the outlets (Eddie Bauer was the favorite). The Vermont Butcher Shop (vermontbutchershop.com) has INCREDIBLE tenderloin and other meats (all local) and Fortunas Sausage Shop (http://www.fortunasausage.com/) cant be missed . We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay.
