Our beautiful country home, Five Trees, is a special mountain retreat set in the forests of northern Vermont on 10 acres of lawns, gardens and forest. The house has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths and sleeps 8+ in bedrooms and separate family room; another 2 in the cabin. This special retreat has an open, fully equipped kitchen with baking nook, large living/dining space with wood stove, office with high speed internet, and a finished basement/playroom with radiant heat.
The house has a dishwasher and washer/dryer. In addition to the interior, there is a large screened porch, as well as numerous decks with views of the gardens and the mountains. A separate, cozy cabin with a sleeping loft and a wood fired stove overlooks the swimming pond. There is also a wood-fired hot tub on the lower deck of the main house. A beautiful trail circles our forest and connects into a longer trail network ideal for cross-country skiing, running, mountain biking and snowshoeing.
Five Trees is located about 15-20 mins from Stowe, 30 mins from Smugglers Notch, and 1 hour from Burlington. The area is wonderful for hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking/canoeing, skiing (cross country and downhill), skating, and snowshoeing. No pets, no smoking. 1 hour from Burlington, 2 hours from Montreal, 3 hours from Boston.
This is the perfect spot for truly memorable family getaways, from the peace and serenity of the country to unparralleled outdoor adventure to the most amazing night sky anywhere.

Miles and miles of hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and adventuring.

In the summer, two big bonfire sites on the property allow for celebrating the end of a great day. 10 acres for exploration, including gardens and huge yard for family games. Swimming pond with diving rocks, floating raft and dock, ice skating in winter. Elmore Mountain State Park is 1.5 miles up the road with great mountain hiking (fire tower), forests and sandy beach. Trails for mountain biking and great roads for biking. Lamoille River 2.5 miles in the other direction- great for canoeing (feel free to use our canoe). Good antiquing, great small towns to explore and really phenomenal food all around.
