Inside, you will find a warm spacious atmosphere, where a large family or group will feel right at home surrounded by country style antiques and decorations. There are two separate sides of the house, so families can find as little or as much privacy as desired. The 2600 square foot house has 13 rooms, 2 fully-eqiupped kitchens, a large dining room with 2 dining tables and a beautiful wood stove, 2 living rooms with 2 fireplaces, a family room complete with a tv and videos, a library/game/office room with wifi, books and games for all ages, 2 heated sun porches, a large screened-in porch where you can enjoy a family meal or quiet contemplation with the sounds of the brook behind, a deck, 5 bedrooms, and 2 full and one half bathrooms. The 5 bedrooms sleep 12 people, but there are 4 fold-out couches that sleep 7 people, and we can supply fold-out cots as needed.
Outside, you will be surrounded by the beautiful green mountains and the sound of the brook. In the winter you can enjoy cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, and children and the young at heart will enjoy our many sleds and toboggans. In the summer you can enjoy the pond with a canoe and tubes, the brick fireplace grill, jumping in the brook's water hole, hiking, volleyball, badminton, and other games. And in the fall, children will enjoy picking apples in the yard and a world of incredible foliage abounds!

We were thrilled to purchase this house on ten acres which was once part of our 92 acre farm that we have owned since 1988. While we loved furnishing and decorating the house, it has been extremely rewarding to hear the warm praise from the many families, groups, wedding parties, and ski teams that have stayed in the Brook House.
