Inspiring Architecture, Nature, and Awesome Views!

We saw orange salamanders, toads, and turkeys and heard barred owls. Our dogs swam in the beautiful moats. The privacy of this property made is such a retreat. The thoughtful, artistic architecture moved us completely to vacation mode. The views from upstairs are simply jaw dropping, and the indoor lights at night created a scene from Merlin or a Hobbit movie. The kitchen was wonderfully equipped and a pleasure to cook in. If we could choose anywhere to retire, it would be here. This is a place to get a change of routine, escape, and be inspired by your surroundings!

Memorable Stay

I stayed here with a group of friends for our annual snowboarding trip. The details of this home.. or should I say, castle was immaculate! The owners were very accommodating and immediately took care of an issue my group had during the first night of our stay. The dining room fit all of us at one table, which rarely happens on our trips. The view from the master room open lobby was grand. There was a dual oven which was helpful with getting breakfast and dinner out all at once. We basically spent most of our time in the kitchen, dining room and great room. This is definitely a must-book location. It's fairly close to Okemo Mountain. I am interested to experience this wonderful home in the summer and look forward to a future stay.

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a spacious home, tucked away from it all.

Make sure you drive an AWD during the winter to get up to this home!

What a great time we had.
This house is just amazing, spacious, beautiful and as private as anyone could hope for. We were a group of 12, always rotating our meals and activities throughout the whole house just to use it all of it.
The outside space is as beautiful as the interior, bedrooms, bathrooms, library, balconies, living rooms and yes, the great fireplaces.
It integrates all the visitors as one family and there is no way to spend a better time than eating, drinking, watching TV and playing board games.
Thumbs up for the Grahall estate!

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this amazing home. There is ample living space for multiple families or groups. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals. And the property and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. We're looking forward to a return visit, for sure.
