Crossett Hill LodgeConveniently located just off route 100 between Stowe, Sugarbush, and Mad River Glen in a pristine forest setting, the Lodge consists of two separate units, the Loft and the Terraces. At five miles from the Heady Topper brewery and Ben & Jerry's factory, and three miles from Amtrak and Interstate 89, the Lodge is easy to get to and easy to visit.

The Terraces unit sleeps six in two bedrooms with two full baths, kitchenette, dining area, patio, and a 300 square foot living room. With 12-foot ceilings, knotty pine walls, stone fireplace, and big windows overlooking the forest, you find yourself in a ski lodge, not a condo.

The Loft unit sleeps six in two open loft bedrooms and a cozy library. It includes a full kitchen, two full baths, 800 square foot living-dining area, 18-foot ceilings, huge stone fireplace and cantilevered deck.

The Sugarhouse unit sleeps two in a small studio with kitchen corner, bathroom, and roof deck.
The Lodge was completely renovated in 2014, and offers hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on premises, with equipment available. High-speed internet, EV charger, and dry firewood are provided. No smoking, no pets. Children welcome. Friendly, occasionally intelligent, and sometimes helpful owners often live in the loft unit.

Au Pied du Chateau Au Pied du Château looks out on the village square and the Chateau de Bourdeilles, a medieval castle with a renaissance addition. Au Pied du Château is a little townhouse nestled into the center of a lively village in the Dordogne department in the Aquitaine region of the south of France, in an area known as Périgord. With two bedrooms, bath, kitchen, and living room, Au Pied du Château accommodates four adults and two children. Fully furnished and equipped, it can be rented for a week, a weekend, or a few days.

Facing the 12th-century castle, just down from the church, Au Pied du Château is a small town house on a cobblestone pedestrian street, with two bedrooms, fitted kitchen, bath and living room on two floors. The master bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bath comprise the ground floor. The second floor houses the second bedroom. In its 400-plus years, Au Pied du Château has witnessed quite a bit of history. In addition to its patch of grass by the front door, the house faces the chateau's park and gardens across the street, with benches, trees, and pretty views across the Dronne River. A few steps down Rue de lÉglise takes you to the village square, where you may enjoy a drink under the trees at one of the cafés.
