"This home was charming and most welcoming. We had rented it so the entire extended family of 21 could be together for the 5th sons wedding weekend in Bellows falls. The kitchen was well equipped and we could manage large meals without any needs. The long table that seats 10+ was the central point for the gathering. The wide variety of bedrooms fitted every member's needs and they were well stocked with linens. The home also has a variety of sitting areas so we weren’t all stuck in one room, but we were under one roof which is special. The 8 grandkids loved the stream that was on the property, and even the adults found it a great cooling spot. If you are searching for a homey place for a gathering I would highly recommend it."

"The 1828 Reunion house is a perfect place to gather with friends and family. There is an abundance of space both within the house and outside. The kids love playing by the river, toasting s'mores at night by the designated fire pit, and walking the trails. The house has two kitchens, which is perfect when cooking for large groups and for those who just love to cook with friends and family. The large dining table allowed us all to gather for meals. This house is a truly special place for us. We started coming in 2011. We skipped a few years, but we were all so happy to return this summer. Peg and Matthew are great with communication. My questions were answered immediately and check-in was seamless."

"Great experience - tons of space which worked well for all of our guests. The two kitchens were helpful and the dining table fit all 16 of us. The river is lovely and so close. Peg was extremely accommodating and quick to reply. "

“Peg and Matthew’s house is a beautiful, large, and well-kept venue for a cozy and fun stay for big groups. I highly recommend staying here! Great value as well! "

“t was a pleasure staying at Peg & Matthew's place. Couldn't have asked for a more quintessential ski house for the weekend. The fireplace was amazing, and the was more than enough space for our large group to sleep, eat, and hang out comfortably. Definitely recommended for large groups looking for a great ski getaway! "

Every single person with us this weekend made a point to tell me how much they loved the house and absolutely everything about it—from the location and the surrounding towns to the to two kitchens and shared bathrooms spaces (they strangely loved this!) to the creek behind the house and the unbelievable charm and history of everything. My dad told my sister that if she were to marry one day, he would love it if she did something similar in a similar place. The house really provided our big family weekend wedding with the perfect setting and encouraged the making of so many fun memories. The phrase on the upstairs bathroom wall became our motto for the weekend: “The best things in life aren’t things”.
Thank you so much for all your help leading up to this. We have truly had the time of our lives!"

“The communication with Peg was A+. check in & out was easy. This place is beautiful, spacious, clean & cozy also fully equipped for anything you could possibly need. We loved staying here. Highly recommend this place for a large group."

“Wonderful place for a get together! Plenty of space to have a big family dinner but also enough room to branch out into separate groups. Nice backyard space and lovely river only a minute walk from the back door. The barn is great for games as well :) short drive into Ludlow for groceries or last minute shopping. We would definitely stay again."

“"The Farmhouse offered us lots of bedrooms to accommodate our specific configuration of couples and singles, a great dining arrangement that could handle us all sitting down and eating together, two kitchens with a pass-through in between so we could spread out the food we had brought, a number of hangout areas so people could space themselves around as desired. We made use of the foosball and ping pong in the barn, and it was great to have the yard as well. It was convenient to have a stove with lots of big burners. The quirky charm of this old building rounded out a most special stay for our family gathering on a special occasion!"
Judy, New Hampshire, June 2018
“Peg was very nice, she made sure that we had everything and didn’t need anything. The house is located in a prime location with several amazing amenities. The area around the house is very nice with a pathway to the waterfront. The house was very clean and is equipped with new towels and bedding."
Ahmed, New York, May 2018
“Great space for large groups, plenty of bedrooms and bathroom. We loved the large farmhouse table for family meals. Looking forward to coming back one day!"
Casey, New Hampshire, May 2018
“We had a great time at the reunion house. The house was huge and accommodated our party easily. It is also within a 5-minute drive to Okemo which is just an ideal location. The house is rustic which gives it that VT charm. Would head back no doubt. Thanks, Peg and Matthew! "
Joseph New Jersey, February 2018
“Lovely, large, comfortable house in a great location. We fit four families with a couple of extra kids. Great double kitchen space and the two living areas were nice to divide the quiet half from the louder half. "
Greg, Massachusettes, January 2018
“ A beautiful old rambling farmhouse in VT, with great proximity to Okemo."
Anne, Massachusettes, January 2018
“We loved the relaxed atmosphere of the farmhouse. There was plenty of room for people to spread out. I wish I had a big, beautiful dining room at home like the one in this house. We enjoyed watching people arrive to see who would run their hands through the bottle cap reservoir. We held a Harry Potter Themed Dinner Party on Saturday night and it was truly magical. I would definitely recommend this house to other large groups."
Sandy, Vermont, November 2017
“The twelve of us came to Vermont for our 30th-year high school reunion, so we found the perfect house, this one. Peg and Matt's place is so big, we didn't use most of the house like the kitchen, and the adjoining living room was enough. Oh, except for the barn which was great. The crowd is already asking us to book it again next year."
Kathleen, Florida, September 2017
"Peg is a super host, super communicateur and super friendly. The house is huge so that you can get some Space when needed! The charm is all in the décoration that just comes and reminds you of past times! It was great and memorable!!"
M.P. , Bromont, Canda, September 2017
"The property is extremely well stocked with kitchen supplies, books, games, and even a rec room. The dining area is spacious and great for large group meals. Ideal booking for large groups of people looking to have a fun weekend! Just want to thank you again for letting us rent the 1828 Reunion home. We had an amazing time and are looking forward to renting again. Thank you again for letting us make memories. We appreciated it all!"
Matthew, Boston, July 2017
“This place was a wonderful house to stay in for a weekend getaway. Peg was excellent communicating with and there were no problems in terms of organizing the housing arrangements. The beds were all made, the kitchen was well equipped, the furnishings of the house made a great environment to spend time with friends. I would definitely recommend this place as a weekend getaway. A great place, I highly recommend it!"

"Peg's house is an ideal spot for groups of friends or big families to get together. Easy to get to, close to Okemo and a cool downtown area. The house is huge but still very cozy and Peg was an excellent host, very easy to communicate with."
