Setting: The house sits on 10 acres, surrounded by approximately 1 acre of mowed lawn (weekly). There is an additional 3-4 acres of meadow. Beyond the meadow is woods with a road to the upper meadow which contains a small pond - not suitable for swimming but a great destination for hiking. The southern border of the property is Smokeshire Rd., a dirt, county-maintained road which meanders along the Williams River. This is excellent for hiking as there are several bridges on Smokeshire that cross the Williams River. The Williams River is excellent for swimming in the Summer. We have cut a tobaggan path 'Reunion Way' through our woods beyond the meadow which is perfect for sleigh riding in winter apre ski..
Weddings and Civil Unions: The Reunion House is proud to have hosted several weddings and civil unions. We think it's the perfect place for an intimate wedding in the splendor of the Green Mountains. There are several neighbors on Smokeshire Rd that also rent their homes so if your wedding party is big there are other homes available within walking distance - call for details. If there are to be more guests than the Reunion House's capacity we simply ask that your rent port-a-potties to spare our septic system. There is plenty of ground for event tents and activities. The Reunion House is also an excellent base for those attending wedding in the area - rent the house for the wedding party, and 'memories will surely be made'.
The House: The 1828 Farmhouse is complimented by the Lodge (an old post and beam structure attached to the house) to create an 8 bedroom 4 bath magnificent home in which to come together. The house and the Lodge are a legal duplex but we only rent the 1828 Reunion House as one unit - an 8 bedroom, 4 bath, 2 living room, tow kitchen 3200 square foot house. Visit our web site for more information.
We are three families that purchased the 1828 Reunion House in 2002 after having rented it for 3 years. The Thrailkills - the owners before us had owned the house for 39 years and ran an antique shop 'The 1828 House' oout of the barn. We formed a ski club - Trailthrill Ski and Riding Club, affectionately named as a play on the original owners surname. We have been restoring the house since buying it. Every year we make it better! We love to share it with other families who are winter sports entusiasts as we are, or those that just love Vermont. Every year there are several weddings at the house. Please consider getting married at the 1828 Reunion House - it's so romantic, and if you do - send pictures!!
We rented the house for three seasons before making an offer to buy. It's a unique and wonderful place that inspires good times, and where memories are made!! Make some Vermont memories with your family.
