This spacious home feels like being in the country - even though it's just 3 miles from the capital. After a day of hiking, snowshoeing, sledding or skiing right out the door, enjoy a relaxing dinner, records and games. A perfect retreat!
Open floor plan, wonderful kitchen and expansive dining area, quiet nooks for reading or crafting, and plenty of space to stretch, play, relax, or do your workout. Immersed in nature yet only moments from downtown Montpelier, our home offers the best of Vermont. This property is incredibly private and peaceful yet just 3 miles from all major amenities. The song birds are abundant in the summer and you can enjoy gorgeous, peaceful sunsets from the deck.
2 sets of snowshoes & cross-country skis. 2 canoes & 2 bicycles. Fully equipped kitchen with chef's cookware, outdoor grill, large record selection, board games from Italy and the US, television screen that plugs into your device, soapstone wood stove with ample firewood, bathtub, beautiful views, sledding hill, and amazing woodland trails. This is a kid-friendly space, too.

My name is Lisa Mase (pronounced ‘Leeza Mahzay’). I am a whole foods cooking educator and consultant in Vermont. I grew up between the Italian Adriatic Sea and the Northern Dolomites that define the border between Italy and Austria. Then, I went to high school in Kansas City, and came to Vermont 15 years ago to attend Middlebury College.
I would be happy to prepare meals for your stay if you like. I charge $165 for 3 complete meals (Serve 4 people) and can cater to most any dietary need.
I am trained as a translator and a writer and I grew up cooking everything from scratch with my dad and my grandmother. Our family began choosing herbal remedies after my parents discovered that I was allergic to most antibiotics. My upbringing has influenced me to become an herbalist and a cooking teacher.
I live through my love of cooking, writing, and community, and nature. I put these passions into practice daily by: delving into the etymology of words, writing and translating; experimenting with cooking techniques; stepping outside to walk the fragrant forests; working in the garden with chickens, vegetables, flowers, fruit trees and medicinal herbs.
