South Woodstock & the SunCottage are simply marvelous! Truly there is not an adequate description. The SunCottage will forever be our "Gold Standard" for vacation rentals!

Two weeks was not enough! :)

                                  Mechelle & Phyllis from Texas

 

“Thank you "SunCottage" for showing us the "Sunny side of Life" in spite of all the rain! It is heavenly here in this very special place of yours. Thank you Hunt & Jess for this spectacular, gala birthday weekend, so much fun celebrating with you! ”

                                  Marilyn & Joe from New Hampshire

 

“To break the mundane day-to-day of working in Boston we fled to the SunCottage. To say the past week was amazing is an understatement. We skiied for three days at Killington enjoying perfect spring conditions. We walked daily to the country store for muffins and coffee and enjoyed the sound of the stream as we worked. By night we relaxed in the hot tub and sauna and enjoyed an amazing dinner at the Ransom Tavern, the burrata was 10/10.

Our highlight was sledding on the back field. We took a work break and flew down the hill shrieking with joy - like children - just having a rare carefree adult moment.

You are provinding people with a very special experience here in Vermont. Thank you!”

“A thoughtful home in the most idyllic location. The photos do not do the SunCottage justice; it’s even better in person! It could not have been more peaceful and was perfect for our mid-week anniversary getaway. Immaculate and well decorated with everything you could possibly need. We took full advantage of the amenities offered. The hot tub and sauna were a great way to wind down at the end of the day. Even the painting supplies (such a nice touch!)

As for the location, you’re only a short drive away from the town of Woodstock. Just down the street there’s an Inn with a tavern and a little country store. We ordered food from both and were beyond impressed. We already can’t wait to come back again for another stay! Hopefully sometime in the summer so we can enjoy the pond and surrounding property even more.”

“The Sun Cottage was a wonderful getaway. The house looks even better than the pictures. The hot tub is perfect for 2, it was very clean as was the sauna. It was a pleasure to be able to exercise on the NordicTrack or row machine every morning. The decor was simple, beautiful and comfortable. The reading room is the perfect place to read a book in the warmth of the sunlight streaming through the windows. Even the fully equipped kitchen made it easy to cook and stay in all 4 nights of our visit. Our stay was exactly what we needed and we would recommend this spot for anyone looking for a relaxing get away.”

Wow! Just wow. We have been AirBnB users for awhile now - but this is above & beyond by far our best experience! From the in-home amenities to the very well-thought out, well designed technology, we loved every second! As a skier, Mark got to explore Killington’s slopes solo, and then together we went on a snowmobiling adventure. (Both our first times!) As more of an indoor girl, I thoroughly enjoyed the natural light, morning workouts, and the sauna/hot tub were truly the cherry on top! The beauty of our surroundings never ceased to take our breath away. We even hiked to the top of the hill for some Instagram picturesque views & sled down!

The way the sun hits the snow created the most amazing glistening trees all throughout the day. We loved to admire the glass wall also - great photo backdrop! We cooked hearty breakfasts and went out for dinners - Ransom Tavern was our favorite! We even loved the digital art frame.

I am not a painter but wished to make some art, maybe next time! We definitely plan to come back in the future - perhaps for summer or fall. We’d love to see some wildlife. It was too cold even for the animals this time!

We are grateful to our hosts for this time here. After canceling our Italy 2020 trip, we needed a change of scenery, and this certainly was the perfect winter escape. We wish we could quarantine here forever. Ha!

We also loved the milk, cheese, beer, etc. All the thoughtful little touches were just perfect. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts -

It's January, 2021 and we are in the depths of the pandemic. Inauguration day looms. My husband, Ian, and I are in Vermont for a respite from running our breakfast & lunch restaurant in Portland, Maine.

We stayed in the SunCottage for 5 nights and it's pure bliss. Morning exercise, hot tubs, lazy afternoon puzzling, cocktail hour, charcroute, fires at sunset. I don't think we even left for two straight days. The snow was beautiful.

We loved all the energy saving features at the house... very inspirational!

OK, a few more hours to relax and then we have to pack the car... the GRIND calls.

                              XOXO,  Lucy & Ian from Maine

              P.S. Got an amazing Flannel house dress type shirt @ Vermont Flannel

 

We're a newly engaged couple and after months of quarantine, were dying for some space and a change of scenery. Our stay at the SunCottage gave us that and so much more.

Upon arrival, we were just blown away by the cottage itself (the pictures just can't do it justice!) Everything was done so thoughtfully and with purpose, and the craftmanship is top-notch.

We enjoyed every bit of what the cottage has to offer - the hot tub, exercise and sauna, even the paint. We even played scrabble for hours!

While we loved Woodstock, our trip would not have been the same had we not stayed here And to be just up the hill from some of the best pizza we've ever had? WOW!

Thank you for creating a space that people from all over will be able to experience. We will be back!!

                                  Jamie & Bill from New Jersey

 

We had a spectacular week at the SunCottage. We are leaving here feeling so completely rejuvenated and relaxed. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces of the property provided such a tranquil environment. We loved falling asleep each night to the soothing sounds of the babbling brook and waterfalls.

Highlights of our week included hiking to the Pogue, visiting Quechee Gorge, and exploring the scenic country roads. This amazing and unique experience has far exceeded our expectations. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

                                  Doreen & Danielle from Massachusetts

 

We had the best time on our babymoon here at the SunCottage - thank you! If there is a definition of relaxation and tranquility, this place is it. We loved exploring the beautiful grounds, using the firepit and all the amenities. My husband loved the hot tub and we will definitely be back so I can use it! The welcome gifts like the beer, milk and others, along with the gorgeous flowers really made us feel welcome and right at home (even if it was just a few days). This is by far our favorite AirBnB experience to date and we can’t wait to return.

The pandemic halted our trip to Cancun... we still wanted a getaway. I'd like to thank Covid-19 for allowing us the opportunity to find the SunCottage. I have never had to drag myself away from a vacation spot before- I don't want to leave! The 'cottage' is beautiful with the design and intentional layout, the thought and planning here is very much appreciated. The outside landscape, the natural beauty, is the star here. To be still and listen to the water, the bugs, the leaves in the breeze... thank you for allowing the average person to afford time in this paradise.

We went to Harpoon Brewery (Mango beer!), Melaza (veggie empanada and guava mojito!), the Killington Market (delicious deli sandwiches). We did a one hour ride at ATV Vermont which was even more fun than anticipated, but being here, inside watching Netflix, outside looking at the stars at night, hot tub, rowing on the machine to work off some Cabot cheese indulgence, laying on the rock wall sunning myself... it's just magic. Thank you, we will be back again.

We love this place! So beautifully put together, feels like a sanctuary. So open, airy and bright. Quiet and private, yet close toa area activities and dining. The sound of the stream was absolutely lulling. The stonework and landscape, artful.

The Worthy Kitchen served us a very nice dinner (burger & salad(. We also enjoyed dining at the Kedron Valley Inn, and coffee and muffins from the General Store.

Swimming in the pond was lovely and calm while getting we at '20 Foot Falls was exhilarating. We had such beautiful summer weather this week that it was hard to stop moving! Except for the time to have a soak in the hot tub, which we so appreciate!!

Wish we were staying another week. Boo, time to go though. Thank you for the treats (beer, cheese, milk and flowers) And for being so responsive when we had questions. Couldn't have had a better time or found a better place. We're looking forward to returning next year!!

The cottage was beautiful and sparkling clean. The gym, hot tub, and unique eco-friendly design made us feel like we were at a high-end spa. With the windows open, you can hear the relaxing sound of the brook.

                                   Nick & Jung from New York

 

The SunCottage was amazing, the perfectly peaceful getaway for my fiancé and I. The home itself was immaculate and wonderfully built with minimalist Scandinavian design. Boasting natural stone and wood, magnificent windows and simple modern furniture. Overlooking a beautiful landscape with a cascading stream and mountains in the distance you are truly able to admire nature. Just across the bridge to the walking trails you can enjoy the stone fire pit that sits under the star light sky. The stars on a clear night really left is in awe and is a sight to remember.

The amenities were the cherry on top to this already gorgeous place. The hot tub, sauna work out equipment, and spacious cozy loft helped us relax and soak up every moment of our vacation. There is also super cool energy efficient elements to the cottage like a solar panel, Tesla energy storage batteries, up to date outlets with USB ports, a bottle wall that’s artistic and generates heat, even a solar tracker that casts the sun's light.

Hunter and Jess were very welcoming and thoughtful hosts. The house was very clean and prepared for guests. A lovely welcome packet that had all information about the home, stay, and area. Small signs throughout with explanations on all the amenities and need to knows. The owners lived very nearby but never did we feel interrupted or unwelcome. This was truly the best place and I’m so happy it’s were we chose to get away!!!

I couldn't imagine a better place to spend our vacation. Working long hours in the hospital, it's easy to feel disconnected from nature and its beauty. The SunCottage is grounded in the surroundings and one cannot spend a minute without being transported to the snowy landscapes outside. We loved sitting in the hot tub while watching snow quietly fall, walking under clear starry skies to Kedron Valley Inn for steaming pizza and a bottle of Nebbiolo, and morning card games with hot coffee in the light filled living room. We can't wait for our next visit! This is truly a unique place and we won't forget it -

                                   Jessica & Peter from Virginia

 

Hunter and Jessica, thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. It was the perfect quiet getaway that we needed from NYC. We'll be sure to recommend your place to our friends and family back home. Cheers! XO

                                   Jamie & Lewis from New York City

 

Dear Jessica and Hunter thank you so much for having us at this amazing home away from home SunCottage what a gorgeous setting in every step we take inside is another revelation as to your planning design and comfort center details just amazing with gratitude for our wonderful experience

PS The hot tub was the perfect way to end the day!

                                   Michael & Joan from Florida

 

So thoughtful in design, with every possible amenity for the lucky guest. Thank you for providing the perfect retreat. I was able to leave my busy little world far behind, recharge in nature, and share new adventures with wonderful old friends. Thanks Hunt & Jess!

                                   Carl & Lisa from Connecticut

 

What a treat staying in such an innovative creative and so interesting a cottage with all the comforts of home. You can cook a grilled cheese sandwich or a five star gourmet meal. On top of all of that, a fabulous hot tub and babbling brook. Oh my pure heaven! Great job, Hunter and Jess, much success,
