Welcome to Belmont Treetops - your perfect getaway in the lush beauty of the Green Mountains. Although we are located in a classic quaint Vermont village, we are only minutes away from all the activities that make Vermont wonderful - Swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking, summer concerts, great theater, and restaurants.
And, of course in winter: skiing, skating, and snowshoeing.
This new large studio loft is only four years old and is ideal for a ski vacation, romantic getaway, summer holiday, or fall foliage tour. The loft has open space, high ceilings, glass, and is furnished with antiques and cozy furniture. The best part - you feel like you are living in a treehouse as you look out over the treetops to the mountains. We're family friendly but we've also been told that Belmont Treetops is a wonderfully romantic place to stay. Writers and those seeking quiet away from their busy lives have found this to be a place they love coming back to year after year.
The partitioned sleeping area has a queen bed and is surrounded by partial walls and etched glass for privacy. A pullout couch has a full bed. There is a fully-equipped kitchen including dishwasher and microwave and stocked with all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils you will need. All linens are provided. There is also Wifi and an IPOD doc in the studio. And our guests always enjoy the homemade treats and cheese and crackers we leave for them upon their arrival!
SPRING/SUMMER/FALL: We are located in the heart of the Green Mountains on nine acres of wooded land and open fields. Views of the mountains are outside your window. Hikes and miles of trails for snowshoeing/x-country skiing are right behind the house. Easy access to beautiful dirt lanes for biking and hiking. Swimming, kayaking, fishing, golf, tennis are less than 15 minutes away. For those seeking cultural activities, the acclaimed Weston Playhouse (Christopher Lloyd played was in DEATH OF A SALESMAN in the summer of 2010) is only ten minutes away and a concert can be found almost every day of the week.
You are an easy 1.5 mile scenic walk on a tree-lined country dirt road to the charming Belmont Village, store, and Star Lake. You can start your day with a walk to the store and pick up your morning coffee and newspaper. There is also an old-fashioned library, with a wide selection of books, and a local museum in town.
If you don't want to eat at home using the fully equipped kitchen, there are restaurants as close as ten minutes away. Also nearby is the famous Vermont Country Store in Weston where you will discover hard-to-find items and an impossible to resist selection of candies, cheeses, jams, and other delicious food items.
WINTER: We are near many ski areas: Okemo, near Ludlow, less than 15 minutes; Bromley, 30 minutes, Killington 40 minutes. You can also enjoy skating on beautiful Star Lake 2 miles away. More than 25 acres of snowshoe and cross-country trails or sledding, outside your front door!
