Best ever family vacation!
Every year, in late August, our family of twelve (three generations including six kids under nine) chooses a different VRBO property for one week of being together. All of them have been great, but this one was outstanding. A beautiful house and grounds with space for everyone to have downtime, or to hang out with a few people and play games or watch tv away from the rest of the family, or to be all together in the large welcoming kitchen. Indeed, the kitchen was the central gathering place, and there, with everything we needed, we cooked yummy meals, listened to music, enjoyed conversations and kept our eyes on the kids who spent every moment they could outdoors. The pool, tennis court and play area have never been so well used, I'm sure; as one of the adults said, "we really don't have to leave the property except to get groceries now and then - everything for a perfect vacation is right here!" While likely true, we did leave the property to take long walks, explore Knowlton and nearby towns, do a bit of fishing and enjoy the fields and hills and valleys of the beautiful Eastern Townships. A rainy day trip to Montreal for several people worked well, and we were able to welcome a few guests from Montreal who could easily make the trip for lunch. Arranging to stay here was easy. Great information before our arrival, a house that was welcoming and ready for us when we got here from our various locations, and quick responses when we had a question or two all added to the pleasure we had at The Farm. We left with at least one child in tears because we had to go, but we promised that we'd be back. And we will be!
