Our home is perfect for a Vermont vacation any time of the year! It is spacious and elegant, owner designed/built to be cool on hot summer days, and warm and cozy in the winter. This section of the house is 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths. Lawns and gardens span the property, with two ponds and wooded areas to explore.
The house is perfectly located; it's a 15 min drive to either Stratton Mountain Ski Resort or Manchester shopping and restaurants, and 8 mins to Bromley Mountain.
The main floor of our home features a large open dining and living room and half bath, surrounding a central wood stove accented with paintings by the acclaimed artist Chris Polson of Lincolnville, Maine. There is a large equipped eat-in kitchen if you prefer a cozy night in, which will be stocked with some breakfast items, including some homemade goodies!
The second floor features 4 bedrooms and 2 baths surrounding a central gathering/living room. There is a master suite with a king bed and a lovely view of Bromley Mountain.
Guests can take advantage of the lawns and gardens to barbecue on the grill, lounge in the Adirondack chairs, build a fire and roast marshmallows, and stargaze into the night. The view of the milky way and uncountable stars is incredible!
You will have access to the main section of the house (there is an attached suite; see below) and to the grounds. There is a private cottage on the property which is occupied by the owners, please feel free to knock if you need anything!
Interaction with guests
We are generally available to assist guests throughout their stay should you need anything, otherwise we will leave you to enjoy your time away!
Other things to note
There are two sweet cats that live in the cottage, but will not be in the house.
Our home is designed to be able to divide into two entirely separate spaces - a 4Br/2.5Ba house with full kitchen, laundry, woodstove, etc. and a gorgeous suite with downstairs library, Jacuzzi tub (deep soaking tub, no jets), and balcony. Our home can also be rented as one whole house with 5Br/3.5Ba and all of these amenities, so whatever your vacation plans and group size we can accommodate you!
Please note: this particular listing encompasses the section of the house containing 4 Bedrooms/2.5 Baths; there is another attached section with the Private Suite. These two sections share the same entrance. If you wish to rent the entire house, please see the listing titled, "Elegant Vermont Home - Skiing/Winter Wonderland!". Whatever you choose, we look forward to hosting you!
Please note the cleaning fee is per week.
Kindly park in the parking area in front of the garage (across the street from the house), rather than parallel on the road, in order to ensure optimal plowing in the winter and enough space for all cars throughout the year.
I love to travel and see new places; I am always exploring. :) My work focuses on designing sustainable business and community systems according to holistic business paradigms and permaculture principles. I also love to host guests at my childhood home in Vermont, which is gorgeous in every season. Hope to see you soon, whether visiting or hosting!
