I stayed at John’s cozy historic cottage over Christmas for 5 days with my partner and 3 other friends. We had a wonderful stay - the cottage is warm, homely, comfortable, well-equipped, nicely decorated and was just perfect for a winter getaway to the snow. The compact kitchen and the dining area were great for cooking up and enjoying our Christmas dinner, and the lounge area ideal for relaxing after a day on the slopes at Okemo. We particularly loved sitting around the chiminea wood burner on the porch under the stars with snowflakes falling, and sledding in the field over the road.
John was an exceptional host - extremely accommodating when we had to adjust our arrival day and time, and allowing us to bring an additional friend who stayed on an air mattress (also provided) in the lounge area. His neighbor very kindly shovelled the snow from the drive and door for us too after an overnight snowfall.
I highly recommend both John and his cottage, and would love to come back to stay in the summertime.
