LIGHT FILLED MOUNTAIN RETREAT CLOSE TO KILLINGTON AND OKEMO

Plymouth House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms+Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6), WIFI

A light filled mountain retreat overlooking pond on 22 acres. Very comfortable for 2 couples, can accommodate more. Located in historic Plymouth, birthplace and resting place of President Calvin Coolidge.

Enjoy skiing/sledding in Winter, listening to peepers in Spring, hiking in Summer, beautiful colors in Fall. Gather round the fire pit at night and watch the stars come out or stay in by the fireplace: your choice.

In Winter Plymouth is a great ski location - minutes from Okemo and Killington. Snowmobiling and VAST trails are even closer. Sledding is on the doorstep.

In Summer hunt for berries on the property: blackberry, wild strawberry and mountain blueberry. Explore Plymouth and get a glimpse of Vermont as it used to be in Coolidge's time. Pan for gold down the hill at Plymouth Five Corners, once the site of a thriving town during the gold rush but now taken back by nature.

Great food and restaurants are close at hand: local organic produce most of the year, artisanal cheeses, local beers...even local wine.

The house is well maintained, with quality furniture, WIFI, and a spectacular open plan living/kitchen/dining area on the second floor. There is a central fireplace and lots of windows with views over the mountains and into the woods. Glass doors lead onto the deck and an outdoor barbecue. The deck is a screened seating/dining area in the summer months. On the same level there is a separate second lounge/ den/ office area with large windows and views and an adjacent shower room. This room has a queen sofa bed that converts to queen bed and two of the living room sofas convert to single beds.

The two bedrooms are on the first floor. The master bedroom with queen bed has a bathroom en suite. The second bedroom with queen bed has a bathroom a few feet down the hall. The laundry room is on this level.

The attached garage is a real plus in Winter. No clearing snow off the car in the morning, drive straight in walk into the house in the evening. You need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to reach the house in snow season.

The house is supplied with organic linens for the beds and bathroom, paper products, cleaning supplies, and toiletries.

A mile off the beaten track and set in 22 acres of yard and forest this modern contemporary home allows comfortable, easy living for a family or group in a light filled space. NB YOU NEED 4 WHEEL DRIVE TO ACCESS THE PROPERTY IN THE WINTER. The driveway and the road to the house are steep. The road and driveway are plowed but especially during a storm you will need 4 wheel drive.

Keywords: House, mountain retreat, contemporary, light filled, garage parking.

About Jill Davies

We used this house as our ski house for many years, We love the area so much we now live here full time in the Village of Woodstock. We love skiing, eating good local food and traveling. We love exploring Vermont and discovering all it offers.

Jill Davies purchased this house in 1997

Why Jill Davies chose Plymouth

It's 3.5 hour drive from CT making it perfect for a weekend skiing. You can choose to ski at Killington, the Beast of the East, or the more family friendly Okemo resort. In summer it is a great escape with the charming town of Woodstock just 30 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

It's a 20 minute drive to Killington Skyeship or Okemo Jackson Gore and 10 minutes to Farm & Wilderness. There is unlimited hiking, biking and VAST trails on the doorstep. The house sits on a great hill for tobogganing, We love listening to the peepers in the spring.

Wonderful House in the Vermont Woods

  • 5 of 5
We stayed two weeks in this lovely house. Up in the woods above Plymouth on a dirt road, the house is surrounded by trees, with a meadow in front and a cleared area off the back of the house. The interior of the house is wonderful - very open and light-filled, well-designed...probably the nicest interior of any house we've rented. A little porch off the back is great for grilling, soaking up the sun, and eating or reading. The lower level bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The interior details are really tasteful...definitely NOT the typical ski chalet/condo rental. Also the house was well-stocked with various supplies, and very clean. There's a two car garage. An upper area in the back behind the house has a little outdoor fireplace and chairs; we spent many evenings roasting marshmallows, drinking wine, watching the sky turn dark while the fire quietly burned. While there are others who live on the road, you never hear nor see anyone, so it's extremely private. This is the first house we've rented in Vermont where at the end of our stay we said to each other, "we definitely want to come back." We highly recommend it.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5
My daughter, myself and future son-in-law thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. Everything was just at it appeared on-line. The house was not lacking anything..we enjoyed the fire pit as well as the fireplace while we played scrabble which was one of many games available as well as numerous movies. The location was perfect for us and would definitely recommended renting this house.

First visit to see the fall

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I spent 3weeks exploring New England staying in a variety of accommodation. Plymouth house was the best. This light and spacious house, set in its own extensive grounds, was modern and very comfortable. The fixtures and fittings are of a very good quality with a good mix of modern and solid wood furnishings. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, one ensuite and one with adjoining bathroom both kitted out with good quality towels and toiletries. The woods surrounding the house gave us our own private fall spectacular. The house and grounds are so enjoyable that we spent one day "at home" relaxing, exploring and star gazing at night. I would definitely stay in this property again.

Winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5
This bright and open home is located in the hills of Plymouth. We stayed there during and after a winter storm and it was a wonderful place to find warmth and safety while the blowing snow surrounded us. Our boys made a ski jump out the back while we rested by the fire. The house has eveything you need, from organic spices to all natural soaps and shampoos. The layout is really cool with large windows and books and music to be found is most rooms. It is close to both Killington and Okemo for winter sports. The road that
leads to it is great for walking or running! I would love to go back in the summer or fall, it must be amazing!

Get away from it all

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful and is the perfect retreat. Conveniently located: the house is in between Okemo and Killington and we visited both. Beautiful location: feels very remote and private, picturesque Vermont but take the advice of the owner seriously to have an all-wheel drive car - the drive up in the snowy winter is no joke. Also, we are city people so we weren't used to the idea of driving 20 minutes to the nearest grocery store (there are country stores closer). The house itself: large, modern, open and nicely decorated. Awesome fireplace, well stocked kitchen, separate bedrooms, living room, etc. Owners: clearly care about the house and it's upkeep, Jill is lovely and responsive. Could not have been more pleased with our experience. We'd love to come back again.

Great Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past weekend at this home. It was the cleanest rental that at which we have ever stayed, and the owner leaves meticulous directions for how to operate everything in the house. The kitchen was a pleasure - CLEAN and well organized with great pots and pans, sharp knives and matching and complete flatware. The open floor plan is bright and soothing. It is hard to really capture the feeling of the home in pictures.

For us, it was a great sanctuary to relax after a day on the slopes and we all slept well on the firm yet comfortable beds. The Whisper Hill bath products were an extra nice plus - we came home with kids scented by their aromatherapy baths!

I would thoroughly recommend this property.
