The house is surrounded by mature forest and has a century-old stonewall crossing the property. Build a snowman on the front lawn in winter or enjoy a game of badminton in summer. Build a castle in the sandbox. Admire crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils and tulips that bloom in the flower garden in May/June or pick delicious blackberries in Aug/Sept.

Other Activities: In the fall, we love to relax on the deck or front lawn or hike in the nearby Jamaica State Park. Our favorite activity any time of the year but especially in the fall is to take a gondola up Stratton mtn and then take a ~20 min hike to the tower to take in a breathtaking 360 view of the mountains and the foliage changing color. In winter we go skiing on Stratton and Bromley. Lately, the kids are into skate skiing, and we use the Viking Nordic Center ~20 min away to cross country ski. In summer we like to gather strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries or drive 15 min to Townshend Dam to swim in the lake and play at the playground or drive few minutes to Ball Mtn Lake Dam for the beautiful views or to Jamaica State Park for hiking and swimming and playing at the playground.
