A home with a soul
Just got back from a lovely long weekend at Innisfree. The owners keep this place in beautiful shape and there is a palpable sense of happiness and history about the place, which has been in the family for a long time. There is a beautiful view, the house is charming, the beds are comfortable, and the living space is well-contrived for lounging around, cooking and dining, and enjoying the outdoors. Unlike most rental houses there is lovely glassware and dishes, good cookware, and sharp kitchen knives (oh the dreaded rental home chef's knife that can't cut so much as a potato! Not here...). The kids loved going to nearby (22 min) Lake Fairlee so much we went two days in a row. The owners live on the property in a separate, detached house. This is in no way a bad thing, as they respect their guests' privacy but are readily available if anything should need attention (which rarely happened as the home was well-appointed). A plate of cookies and a set of goodie bags awaited the 4 kids in our party when we arrived: a generous and welcoming touch!
Beloved family home near Dartmouth College.
