The layout was perfect for my family that stayed at the house. The main apartment part of the house was upstairs and the bottom floor with two extra bedrooms and living room offered a nice separation for my sisters family and baby. I wish we could of done a walk through of the house upon arrival, but the host was out of town that day and didn't everything in his power to make sure we had the information we needed.

A group of 6 of us stayed in the guest house during September for a wedding. The area was beautiful, and the house was very clean and comfortable. Harvey and his wife were out of town, but made sure we had everything we needed. Heads up that the downstairs master bedroom has very sheer curtains separating it from the living room, so it doesn't offer full privacy if other guests are watching TV in the downstairs living room! Thankfully no one in our group was very shy ;) They have a huge collection of board games in the upstairs closet, which we took advantage of. I'd definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting the area!

Harvey made us feel so welcome! Gave us a great deal and truly worked to make sure we had the best time possible. We were 6: 2 adults, 2 teens, a kid and a baby. The teens loved it and the kid and baby also. They loved the escape from the city, the large space and playing on the grounds. We would definitely go back and stay in this place. I doubt you'd find a more generous and accommodating host. Thank you for everything Harvey and familyxxxx

Harvey is a great host who makes sure that you are comfortable and have everything you need. The guest house is a wonderful place for two families or multiple generations. It has an interesting layout with two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs so everyone has privacy. The house also has lovely views of the mountains and is in a quiet location. I highly recommend this house.

It was a pleasure hosting your family. Please visit us again soon. I am glad you enjoyed the Mad River Valley - especially in light of the less than optimal ski conditions.

The house was everything as described & more. It was truly a home away from home. Harvey contacted us a week before our arrival to make sure if we had any questions or needed anything. On the day of our arrival, Harvey warmly greeted us and gave us a grand tour of the house. The house was perfect for two families of four. It was spacious for 4 adults and four teenagers. I have never been to a rental as fully stocked as Harvey's. After a day at the slopes, it was nice coming back to the comfort of a home. We made dinner nightly since the no one wanted to go back out in the frigid cold. The kitchen has all the amenities so it was easy to cook a meal. They even have a crockpot so you can prepare a stew to come home to after a day on the slopes. A quick drive to Sugarbush, this rental is truly a gem. Harvey and Mariam are truly wonderful and gracious hosts!!

My husband and I stayed at Harvey's house with some family and friends for a ski trip. There may have not been much snow on the mountain, but we still had an amazing time! The house was just as described, clean, well stocked, spacious, comfortable and warm! Harvey was very hospitable and responsive to all our questions and needs. Perfect location, close to the mountains, supermarkets, (URL HIDDEN) much to enjoy in Mad River Valley!
