My husband and I just got back from a relaxing getaway. The house was stunningly decorated. We had everything we could have needed, and any last minute items were a short drive away. The welcome package was thorough and detailed, we didn't have any issues or questions. Sonali was beyond communicative and helpful with everything we needed.
We loved spending time in the beautiful bar room. While TV and wifi was provided, we took advantage to disconnect from the world and enjoy quality time together. Grafton is a short drive away to the ski mountains, we took a day and explored the craft breweries and cheese farms. Highly recommended, we will definitely be back.
We stayed at West Corner and all the important factors were perfect. Instructions for finding the house & keys were ideal; everything was left as described. WIFI worked well. The authentic New England vernacular architecture, all on one level, is quirky and fun to explore. The home furnishings are lovely and comfortable. Everything was very clean. The housekeeper had nudged the temperature up so it was a very welcoming home when we arrived. The location feels 'in town' and quiet at the same time. The kitchen is well-equipped, easy to prepare a meal, cocktails or snacks.
Here are my very minor suggestions or comments for future visitors: the 2nd bedroom and 2nd full bath are quite small. Totally functional, but for long-stays not ideal. The owners should replace the existing fridge with a new one that will match the other high-end appliances and which has a door that opens to the left. Right now the fridge swings wide open from gravity and slams back while you struggle to hold all you are removing, close the door and squeeze by it on your way to the kitchen counter. It's easily remedied and I'm sure it will be one day. The LR fireplace is prone to being smoky, even with the flue wide open. Both the powder room and bathroom with the standing shower would benefit from a wall mounted shelf and/or wall hooks since they don't have flat dry surfaces on which to set toiletries and there aren't enough places to hang robes, fresh clothes, towel or whatever. The door to the powder room must be a little swollen and the door lock didn't function. Since this is such a convenient location, it was popular during our stay and a functional door lock would have been preferred. If there was a light to illuminate the driveway and walk, we never found it. Since it gets dark at 4:30PM this time of year, several times we were wishing the house has a motion-sensored outdoor walk light but none of us lost our footing so I guess it was okay. The welcome instructions should be printed out in a bullet-pointed list, laminated, and left conspicuously on the dining table or desk so that each visitor can refer to it. I coordinated the stay but had not pre-printed the instructions. We left first and so our friends needed the instructions to know how to close up. Printer had a connection error; wouldn't print.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay, slept well, loved the house, took pretty walks, laughed, spent a great time with our friends, and would stay here again.
This rental is steps away from the charming little village of Grafton.
The pub at the Grafton Inn is open seven nights and serves very good food. The general store is an upscale small grocer and deli. We had a great BLT there.
There are numerous outdoor activities available.
As to the house, there are many shortcomings and we cannot recommend it. It was like living in somebody’s house with no room for enjoying your own space. There was though a large collection of dvds and vintage records which we did not use.
There is no cell phone coverage in Grafton. When we arrived the land line phone was not working and no internet password was provided. Luckily, the person renting the apartment over the garage remembered the password. WiFi was good.
We brought with us a lot of grocery items so we could use the “gourmet kitchen”.The refrigerator is not in the kitchen but in an adjacent hallway. The refig. and freezer were full of stuff leaving no room to store our goods, and it was filthy. I spent the better part of an hour cleaning it and tossing stuff. There were no empty cabinets to store our nonperishable goods.
There were no hair dryers. No clocks in bedrooms.
There were two bureaus in the Master Bedroom. The drawers on one were locked, as was one drawer of the second. My wife found enough drawers for her clothes in the one dresser, but I had to live out of my suitcases. Only one closet with a few hangers. The retro pants hangers do not suit today’s travelers.
Floors are slippery. You need to wear footwear with good traction. Not the house slippers they provided which were covered with grass and dirt sitting on a dirty tray. We still kept our footwear clean in the home.
The baths are not ensuite. The guest bedroom has a half bath near it, but to take a shower our guests had to use another bath at the far end of the house. This bath had a cracked and mended toilet seat. There was no counter surface for personal items. It was not the bath we expected to offer our guests.
Ovens needed cleaning. We used the cleanest one. Couldn’t find dishes to use in the microwave. Fry pans were cast iron with caked on grease and aluminum with nonstick finishes wearing off.
Baths and shower enclosure were filled with all kinds of bath products. No room for personal grooming supplies.
We stayed at this beautiful home for a week in early October, 2015. It was a perfect, warm, inviting home. The owners have created a very relaxing vacation home with beautiful antiques and original charm. The owners were readily available when we wanted to visit with them and stocked the home with necessities. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
~ A handsome, historic home with an uncommon linear floor plan.
~ Close to Grafton Inn
NEGATIVES from MY experience..... your results may vary.....
~ Wedding rentals are discouraged
~ Delayed communication from the owner due to her travel
~ Rental Agreement is 8 pages long, which I revised to protect myself. (Fortunately, the owner was OK with all of my revisions.) I eliminated the indemnity clause, rewrote the cancellation-refund verbiage to conform with other Grafton VRBOs, clarified the terms of the refund of my security deposit, and dropped the *allowable* A/C temp from 72 down to 67 for the Bride's dressing comfort.
~ After I reminded the owner to sign and return the Rental Agreement to me, she did.
~ Two weeks after our check-out, I had heard NOTHING about my security deposit refund, so I emailed the owners. Finally the refund check was mailed out 18 days after our departure, arriving 24 days after our departure.
My wife and I stayed at the home of Sonali and Pataik for the month of July. It was more lovely than we had imagined. It was clean and well-stocked. It was clear to us that a lot of love had gone into their home. We cooked a lot on the grill in the backyard. My wife loved the sunroom, where she could curl up with a book on the occasional rainy day.
Grafton is a small quaint hamlet such as dots the Vermont landscape. There are swimming ponds, good restaurants
and a lot of great sightseeing to be found.
2 minutos a pé de Grafton Inn.
