Although the Monument Beach house was put into a trust for Porter family members, we do make it available for friends to rent after the reservation process for family has been finalized, usually around March 1st each year.  Our philosophy is to make it available well below market rates (roughly half the current market rate)  with the understanding that friends will use it in a manner similar to our own usage, and that they will have an interest in returning for future use.  Please note also that this differs from many rental properties in the following ways:

1.   Availability is limited. (Family members choose rental dates in February.)
2.   Once a date is confirmed, renters are expected to pay for the time that they have reserved, and full  payment is due a minimum of 4 weeks prior to rental date. 
3.   Cleaning and linen services are not provided (Most renters bring their own linens for convenience, and everyone is responsible for cleaning at their departure).
4.   No smoking is allowed in or near the house.

Click on the HOUSE TOUR, and please review our Porter House Guest Information Manual.  Our guest rental rates are based on our regular family rates, and reflect seasonal availability .  Click here for directions to the house.

If you are interested in being notified in the spring about any available weeks please email me (or call 802 773 4143) and I will add your name to a list of interested prospective renters.  An email notifying you about available weeks  will be sent to you as soon as our own schedule is established around March 1st.
