Here are select comments from our Vermont Treehouse Guestbook:
"We brought snowshoes, and spent hours in the woods exploring the trails. Gorgeous! We didn't leave the property for three days!"
"Everything was fabulous! We loved it here and want you to know how special of a place you have. Thank you again and please know, this is a time my family and I will never forget!"
"We had lovely stay in the Vermont Treehouse, one of the most architecturally fascinating houses I've seen anywhere in the world. All the amenities of your actual home are here, washing machine and dryer with detergent, dishwasher with soap, lots of towels, etc. rather than some places I've stayed that have amenities but no means to use them. Every traveller will appreciate the whimsy of this place, from the spiral staircase to the top floor, to the window seat up above. I highly recommend a visit, both for the serious skier and the casual vacationer who wants to visit the true Vermont.....Sandy, the owner, is just down the road and was easy to reach with our concerns (we had a fairly late arrival time and then ended up coming a day late). Also the wifi was blazing fast, fast enough to play online games.
'What an amazing time we've had. Going to sleep and waking up to the gorge outside was one of the many reasons to love this house.
"What a beautiful, hidden gem you have here!" "The Treehouse had everything we especially peace, quiet, and rest in beautiful surroundings. The hot tub provides the perfect ending to a day of rigorous hiking up Hunger Mountain. You have created a warm, inviting, and unique experience in the heart of skiing and hiking country. The Treehouse is quite a treasure."
"Going to sleep and waking up to the gorge outside was one of the many reasons to love this house." We feel refreshed and recalibrated and will sing the praises of Johnson, Vt. back in NYC! Thank you for providing such a unique and enchanting home!"
"My wife and I hd a wonderful stay here, and invited a couple of friends to join us. We found everything we needed to cook meals between the grocery store in Johnson and the appliances and utensils right here in the kitchen. The hot tub was a pleasant reprieve after a long day skiing the slopes of Stowe and the roads were plowed swiftly after a night's worth of snowfall. We look forward to our next stay here!"
" We had an amazing time at The Treehouse! Dennis and Sandy were so helpful (it was snowing and we couldn't make it up the hill-they did everything they could to solve our problem). We snowboarded on Sunday, hiked the trails on Monday, and spent a day/night in Burlington, and recommend all those things. The hot tub was great after being out in the cold all day. The house had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we are in Vermont."
"Thank you for providing the perfect place to enjoy a winter retreat in Vermont - its warm and cozy atmosphere, fantastic forest views in all directions, nearby walking trails and access to nearby towns and ski slopes. After one longish walk in snow shoes, returning home to the hot tub was especially relaxing. We will return to Australia happy, very satisfied, and rested. If we could, we would make this trip our annual retreat."Get the full listing »
