About this listing
Rent the entire house. Large master with bath, 2 bedrooms comfortably accommodate 4 people with a shared full bathroom, one bonus room with pull out couch. Updated kitchen, wood stove, covered porch for summer dining, exercise room, hot tub, outdoor fire pit and 8 acres for playing around on. Located centrally to three ski resorts, mountain biking, hiking , kayaking on the Reservoir, swimming, you name it. An inviting home for any season!
My description of the property says it sleeps 8, which is accurate, but I think it's important to note that one of the sleeping accommodations is a pull out couch. The house is best suited for six or less adults although certainly the couch can accommodate two adults. For 8 people there is an additional charge per person (over 6 people) of $50.00 each.
If you are renting the house then you will have access to the entire house which includes the hot tub, the grounds and the exercise room.
Interaction with guests
I will be staying in a separate apartment which is on the property so I am very available to answer any questions or explain things about the house to my guests, yet you will hardly know I'm there as it is not an attached apartment.
Other things to note
Although the road is well maintained in the winter it is best to have four wheel drive, all wheel drive, or front wheel drive with snow tires. Rear wheel drive will have a problem in the winter.
I have my "House Rules" for your convenience upon check in.
There is absolutely NO SMOKING permitted in the house.
Since the question of dogs continues to come up I will allow one small dog in the house during a guest's stay. No more then one dog and that dog must be crated when no one is in the house. If you do not have a crate, I do.
As for children we do have a hot tub and children under 12 are not allowed to use it. Also, I have said the house is not suitable for children under 2 years of age because the house is not child proofed with things such as plugs in all the outlets. If you have an infant it would be O.K. but I do not have a crib. Since the house is ideally suited to six adults there will be a $50.00 charge for each adult after 6, up to 8. Eight is the maximum people allowed in this home.
I'm an "empty nester" wondering what I am going to do with all this space? So I've decided to share it with other people who have a love for the area as I do. My home is situated on a hilltop with beautiful mountain views and many amenities that someone visiting would enjoy, such as a hot tub overlooking the mountains across the valley.
I have an ideal setting for relaxing outside in the summer, snowshoeing or cross country skiing from the back door in the winter, or how about sledding down the hill!
Waterbury truly is the Crossroads of Vermont because Exit 10 is so accessible to so many areas for hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, eating out at GREAT restaurants, touring FABULOUS micro brews, you name it!! And let's not forget how close Burlington and Montreal are.
Inside I have an extensive exercise room that my guests are welcome to use. There is a finished walk out basement (to the hot tub and field stone patio) with a large flat screen TV, perfect for movies or sports. The second floor has a spacious master suite and two bedrooms that share a full bath. I have wifi and cell coverage at the house as well. The ground/main floor has laundry and a wood stove for winter comfort.
I do have a cat but I keep him out of the spare bedrooms in case anyone has allergy's. I also have an apartment on my property where my mother lives and where my cat and I can reside while the house is being rented.
I'd say my life motto is that it's just as easy to smile as it is to frown and the results are so much better. I hope if you choose to stay at my house you'll find yourself smiling.
