Our renovated 180 year-old farmhouse is nestled in a small valley that lies under majestic Mt. Mansfield. Surrounded by farmland and knock-your-socks-off mountain views, our home is a place of peace and serenity that overlooks acres of pastures, streams, and woodlands.
Unlike other old farmhouses that have small rooms and confined spaces, our home has an open floor plan with 8 ft. ceilings, creating an atmosphere that is light and airy. Decorated in warm greens and earthy colors, each room has its own charm and character.
Three bedrooms have either queen-size or full beds, and the other two bedrooms have single beds. The master bedroom has a private full bath, while the other bedrooms share a bathroom. Large floor areas can accommodate air mattresses and sleeping bags. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for the most accomplished cook to prepare gourmet feasts.
Underhill and the surrounding region have an amazing array of opportunities for everyone’s taste. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast and like your days to be filled with adventure and adrenaline, there’s a whole network of trails right outside our back door for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. A five minute drive will take you to our best sledding hill that will thrill the kids and wear them out for the night.
Smuggler's Notch Ski Resort is just a 10 minute drive from our house. If you are the adventurous sort, you can ski over the top of the mountain from Smuggler's Ski Resort to Stowe and ski there for the day. Or you can hop in the car and drive 45 minutes to Jay Peak, another great ski resort in Northern Vermont.
For those looking for more cultural activities, there is no lack of beautiful vistas for the photographer and artist. There are multitudes of antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, theatres, and shops all within a 50 mile radius that includes the resort town of Stowe and Vermont’s largest city, Burlington.
Our home is the perfect place for your Vermont vacation. It is also the perfect setting for celebrations like weddings and graduations. Invite your family, friends and relatives to stay here with you.
There are plenty of businesses in the area that would be happy to help you with catering and other services you might need. Contact us with any questions or concerns you have. We’ll be glad to help!

Mike and Lisa Timbers are avid travelers and love to meet new people. We offer our beautiful home to people who appreciate quiet, rural vacations and who enjoy a variety of activities in a laid back setting. Our own interests include gardening, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, kayak camping, skiing, traveling, cooking, yoga, pilates, and a number of other things!
This note was left on our counter-top after a party of 10 people rented our house for a long weekend in February.
Dear Lisa and Mike,
We have had one of the most memorable vacations this weekend! Thank you for providing us with your beautiful home. There was a foot of snow everywhere when we drove up Friday, and we loved having snowball fights and making snow angels - most of all though, we took some incredible pictures of your views. Thanks you - your home is a real treasure!
We spent 3 nights at Mike and Lisa's for part of our spring break ski trip in March. We were 2 families with four young kids and there was more than enough room for everyone. The kids burned off whatever energy was left after skiing by playing in the yoga room while the adults made dinner. The kitchen had everything we needed and the layout of the house gave everyone somewhere to relax for a bit if they wanted. It was an easy 10 minute drive to Smuggler's and everyone agreed it beat staying at the resort. Soaking up a bit of warm afternoon sun outside on the porch after this cold winter was a welcome bonus. We've rented a lot of houses and cottages in the eastern US and Canada over the years and this is one worth coming back to, it was exactly what we were looking for.
We just spent the week with our family of 15 up at Lisa & Mike's and had a great time! The house and location were perfect for our group. We spent most days skiing at Smuggs, along with hiking, sledding and brewery/winery tour. Mike was a great resource for all fun things to do in Vermont! Hope to go back soon and get some mountain biking in.
My family and I stayed at Lisa and Mike's for a wedding we were a part of in Vermont, and we absolutely loved our time with them. They cooked us delicious and fun breakfasts each morning, led our family on a couple different hikes, recommended local attractions to check out, and were just overall enjoyable to talk with whether it was while we ate breakfast, or late at night when we got back from the rehearsal dinner or the wedding. My younger brother and sister really enjoyed all this home had to offer and my parents have already expressed their desire to go back and rent this spot again. We really thought having Lisa and Mike there was a plus! They are incredibly hospitable!
We have now stayed at Lisa and Mike's farmhouse twice. We have four children and it is a great vacation for us. It is very close to Smuggs and we skiid most days. We also went sledding utilizing the sleds Mike & Lisa provide to renters. We have some great memories in their home and look forward to going back again.
Some great things about the house are:
1) Large yard for the kids to run and play in
2) Wonderful kitchen for making meals at home after a long day skiing
3) Great yoga room (I personally enjoyed this and the kids followed along!)
4) Very clean and well stocked (just replace anything you use)
5) More than enough room for us and the kids
We love this house and highly recommend it! I also think it would be a great house for a girls weekend!
Thanks for a great week! The place had everything we needed. What a cool old farmhouse with lots of space. Terrific views! Good location for skiing at Smuggs.
The house is very cozy and charming, with some lovely pieces of furniture and I loved the freestanding tub! The kitchen is great and fully equipped with everything that anyone would need to cook a meal. The owners, Lisa & Mike are great and they were always on hand if we had questions or needed to figure out how something worked. They are very friendly and great hosts.
We were a party of 11, with kids of all ages from 7 to 19, and their grandparents, in addition to their parents, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The yoga studio was a real bonus for my sister in law as she is a yoga teacher.
I would recommend this house to anyone, it has a lot to more to offer besides the usual rental offerings. I would love to come back when it's not so cold too!
