BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED PRIVATE MOUNTAINSIDE RETREAT

Warren House Rental Photos and Description

It is decorated in soothing autumnal tones with very comfortable beds and lots of locally sourced antiques and artwork. It sits on a 20+ acre family estate that backs on to the wild and untouched Roxbury Mountain. Our main family home and cottage sit further up the hill affording you with complete privacy.

  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Having originally purchased the main house next door, we jumped at the chance to buy Orchard Cottage when it became available. With a growing family, we needed space for all of our friends and family to congregate during the holidays. We live overseas but visit several times a year to ski, play in the Mad River, hike in the Green Mountains and be at peace in this really beautiful spot.

Heidi Ringsted purchased this house in 2006

Orchard Cottage is nestled into a ridge on Roxbury Mountain in the middle of the Green Mountains. Set below the main house beyond the apple treehouse and the orchard. It has it's own driveway and is completely private.

This cottage would be perfect for a small family or a couple looking for a unique Vermont getaway. The setting is very peaceful and romantic and the furnishings extremely luxurious. Whether you plan an active break taking advantage of all that the valley has to offer or you are seeking a cozy retreat to relax and watch the foliage change or the wild turkeys and deer roaming through the orchard, Orchard Cottage can supply all of that!

Old Roxbury Road is a private road and a 4WD is a must even though it is plowed continually throughout the winter.

Wonderful weekend in Warren

  • 5 of 5
Had an absolutely wonderful stay at Orchard Cottage here in Warren, Vermont, where the ski gods smiled upon us with some wonderful fresh powder in late March. Would highly recommend this charming home to anyone traveling to the Mad River Valley region. The home is extremely clean, bright, and well-appointed. The family room/living room was a wonderful place to gather around a roaring fire for most of our stay. We shared several fun group meals, and the kitchen is very well stocked with new appliances, lots of plates/pots and pans, and in general, a spacious and welcoming dining area.
We visited in the winter, and Sugarbush is very convenient -- less than 10 minutes away. Both the nearby Blueberry Lake and Ole's x-c ski centers were wonderful tracks for our nordic adventures. The Common Man restaurant, on the access road to Sugarbush, is a wonderful local treat, and country store in Warren Village had some fun Vermont souvenirs and crafts.
Importantly, following both our downhill and cross-country outings -- nothing like a hot shower, and the water pressure (in the shower) at Orchard Cottage was outstanding. We usually forget to ask, but a great shower certainly adds to the attractiveness of this charming home. Well worth the visit, in the winter or for summer vacation. Can't wait to get back there soon.

Perfect weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5
An absolutely beautiful cottage with a gorgeous view... We were looking for a cottage that could host the six of us (and a little one) for a comfortable winter weekend skiing at Sugarbush, but Orchard Cottage exceeded all of our expectations! Some of us were tempted to skip the skiing in favor of relaxing in the comfort of the well equiped and beautifully located cottage...

We booked somewhat last minute, but Heidi was very accomodating and provided all necessary information and amenities for our weekend.

And although we enjoyed a winter weekend and snow-covered hills, the views and surrounding areas are equally great for hiking and walking in the spring, summer and fall...

We look forward to coming back in the summer or next ski season, and would strongly recommend Orchard Cottage to anyone with a passion for the outdoors!

beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
This place is beautiful, the pictures hardly do it justice. The location is ideal. My husband and I visited here as a little get away before having our first baby and it was just the perfect place to relax. It would have been very comfortable for a second couple. We enjoyed staying in a cooking, sitting by the fire and looking out the windows onto the beautiful view at the newly fallen snow. Its just a shame we were not there to ski!

WONDERFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I would like to thank Heidi for creating such a welcoming and lovingly retored retreat in the Vermont hills. The Mad River valley has become a favorite spot for us to escape to, and it is always a delight to be able to curl up in front of a wonderful fire, and feel at home.

Family Labor Day Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and daughter stayed for 5 nights at this wonderful home just outside of Warren. The home is expertly crafted, peaceful, and well maintained. The photos don't do it justice. With nearby ski resorts, a lake, the river, i could see this as being a great location for someone seeking outdoor activities. But, its a great getaway and retreat on its own. Perfect for a couple or small family. We would not hesitate to stay again the next time we return to the Mad River area.

This is a year round retreat with fabulous skiing in the winter and endless outdoor activities in the summer. You can leave the house and be on the slopes at Sugarbush in 20 minutes or if you prefer cross country skiing there are 2 great locations 5 minutes drive away. For a little variety you can also ski Mad River Glen or even Mount Mansfield in Stowe. If you prefer to snowshoe, you can go right from the house and up into the woods on Roxbury Mountain. In the summertime you can hike the Long trail, tube down the Mad River, glide at Sugarbush airport, swim in the numerous swimming holes and even paddle board or kayak on Blueberry Lake. As a family with young children, the Mad River Valley is full of endless possibilities. Equally, this hillside retreat would be perfect for a couple hoping for a romantic escape or some space and time to decompress. If you're a serious foodie, you will find everything you need in the valley. 3 minutes away is the excellent East Warren Community Market. Every Saturday during the summer you can pick up all of your wonderful local produce at the Waitsfield Farmer's market and Sweet Pea Natural Foods in Waitsfield will stock all of the healthy groceries you need. There are an abundance of great restaurants including The Pitcher Inn, Flatbread Pizza, The Common Man and Mint. The Warren Store is a must for lunch!
