About The Owner
We are a busy family with five children all of whom ski on the local race team at Suicide Six in Woodstock. We live in Masaachusetts the rest of the year. I am originally a Brit from London and my husband is from Boston. Our house is my lovely retreat and I hope you enjoy it. With our children growing up we use the house less and less so would love to rent it for the ski season coming up...
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
Why The Owner chose Brownsville
We fell in love with Ascutney 12 years ago on a ski trip there. Since then all five of our children have grown up racing for both Ascutmey mountain and Suicide Six in Woodstock and loving the outdoors.
What makes this house unique
Of course we love to ski all the mountains nearby including Ascutney, Suicide, Killington, Pico, Okeemo and Quechee. Each one is no further than a 45 min drive some are only 5 minutes! We also love mountain biking, horseback riding and swimming in the swim hole. No one is ever there and it feels like your own piece of paradise. I love to walk my dogs ans snow shoe the trails with friends amd My husband loves to play a quiet round of rustic four hole golf with my sons in the evening while we sit and watch on the deck and count fire flies. Its a lovely peaceful area with sunrises second to none.
