The old family farmhouse is located at Viking Nordic Center. In the summer a 3 acre wildflower meadow with a large raised deck offers a great view of the Green Mountains. The house is immediately surrounded by landscaped grounds which include a small pond. A large deck overlooks the field and the mountains, beyond which the nordic trail system rolls through densely wooded Vermont countryside. The house features a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, and an L-shaped living area with a fireplace and French doors opening onto a field stone patio and the backyard. Two of the bedrooms have private bath and a third bathroom is in the upstairs hall.
In the winter you have access to the Nordic center's 35Km of groomed cross country ski and snowshoe trails. Renter's receive complimentary trail passes.
Please note the check in / check out day on this property is Friday so that visitors can take advantage of the many weekend activities in the area.
