Overview

Bolton Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Loft, Open Ceiling, Great Kitchen In The Woods And Waterfalls

We have a rustic mountain home nestled on the side of Stimson Mountain on 25 owned acres and 4,000 explorable acres. We are a comfortable home for 4-6 adults or adults and kids. Your neighbors are waterfalls, hiking trails, swimming holes, ski trails and biking routes... amazing solitude with clean and fast technology makes this house especially equipped to provide you with all the peace and connectivity on a human scale. The water is Vermont well water and is the best you will ever taste. Swimming, cliff jumping, skiing, hiking, mountaineering, biking, rock climbing await immediately! A wood burning stove keeps you cozy in the winter and the breeze at 1500 feet cools you in the summer. You will witness amazing mountain sunsets from the deck and astonishing amounts of wildlife out the back door. With three great bedrooms and a loft with a pull out couch, cathedral ceilings in the living and dining room, wood burning stove and great cooking kitchen this is truly a mountain escape worthy of the most energetic explorers who love to relax after a big day in the outdoors.

Our home is 2.5 miles from the Bolton Valley Ski Resort and 1 mile to the Wedding and Event Pavilion called 'The Ponds at Bolton Valley' and Timberline Lift.

We are 25 minutes from major airports, ferry's, trains and Burlington, Vermont's crown jewel and the true live music capital of the Northeast (That's right NYC and Boston - eat your heart out). Burlington and Vermont are a locals paradise so if you're a visitor your in for a treat. Come experience the dozens of restaurants that have been using local ingredients well before it was ever a catch phrase to do so. Head over to Ben and Jerry's and see where the worlds best ice cream started or go check out Nectar's in Burlington where Phish got their start. There's VT Teddy Bear, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Green Mountain Chocolates and many more local, great companies that add vitality and excitement to an already vibrant scene.

If you want more excitement head to Burlington for a great dinner, catch a show at the renowned Flynn Theater, walk the shores of Lake Champlain - check out Echo Museum and Aquarium on the water or just stroll around and check out the sites on the world famous pedestrian walkway that is Church Street. Burlington gives you all the big city you need in a Vermont Village type of way.

Of course if it's Vermont Village you're looking for Waterbury and Richmond are 6-8 miles in opposite directions at the bottom of the Access Road and each has it's own small town charm. Come see what a real local economy looks and functions like; you will find locally owned bars/breweries, restaurants, snack shops, bakeries and bars as well as farmer's markets, schools, churches and a real, honest to goodness community of people who will be glad to see you.

For some more adventure by car you can head to Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River Glenn with only about a 40 minute drive for amazing skiing and outdoor life.

It doesn't matter what season you come - there is always a festival of some sort happening every weekend so get out and experience the sites and enjoy the ride while you're at it.

If you're a biker, welcome to heaven. If you're a hiker, welcome to the oldest continuous footpath in the US, The Long Trail. Skiers... it's obvious, you've arrived, whether hitting the back-country and enjoying the moose and the 300+ inches of snow annually. Rock Climbers and Boulder-ers - they call Bolton 'The Land of Boulders and Bears' and it's true. You'll find giant boulders everywhere and heavy cliffs to climb winter or summer.

So don't miss this place, you'll never want to leave. We love it because it's truly a Vermont Experience and we want to share that with you.

Welcome!

About Sally

We are a family of three. Mother, Father and Son. We love to play in the woods and water and snow around our home. We love to explore the waterfalls and the land we live on. We aspire to gardening and business and we love to share things we love...and we love our home in Vermont.

Sally purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Sally chose Bolton

Growing up in the area I used to drive by this house on my way to ski. I never imagined I would live here and now that I do, I want to share it with others. It's such a magical place. The locals call it the Half-Way House because it's half-way between the top and the bottom. It's a True Vermont Experience

What makes this chalet unique

Everyone who stays says they get the best sleep they've ever had and that the water is like nothing they've ever experienced. It's an outdoor enthusiasts dream, a kids play land and a couples retreat.

Wonderful Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay in this cozy little home. The wood stove made the home feel even cozier. We spent a couple days skiing at Bolton Valley and loved how close we were to the mountain. Highly recommend staying here.

Perfect ski gateway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house being mid way between Burlington and Stowe since we wanted to spend time in both area. Waterbury is a wonderful town 10 min drive from the house and offers good restaurants and shops. The house is big and very clean. Offers all the amenities you can possibly think of. I would highly recommend this place and owner is very easy to reach for any inquiries.

great place and owners

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property close to everything you would want in VT. We went to Sugarbush, Hill Farmstead, Montpelier all on separate outings.

The house has everything you would need and has a nice chalet feel to it.

The owners are very available and helpful.

Indoors and Outdoors--a real pleasure.

  • 4 of 5

Well-equipped, cozy, and comfortable, with a great common room. We stayed over Columbus Day weekend, a great combination of warm days and cool nights so we enjoyed the wood stove every night. The location seems remote at first, but then you find you are close to many places, such as Burlington and Stowe. Great hiking right outside your door as well. The addition of cable TV would make it perfect (unless TV via internet is enough for you!)

Comfortable, Clean, Fully stocked home, Great outdoors!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house was great. We found the place very clean and in excellent condition. The house is equipped with plenty of linens and towels as well as most household items. The rooms were large and airy. The outdoors of this house are amazing. There is a large wooded area in the back with a stream running through it - great for hiking. We enjoyed the grill as well as a separate fire pit (nice for roasted marshmallows!) We appreciated all of these perks.

Nice relaxing time

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for my parents and I. Directions were laid out for us from the start. Everthing from what linen fit what bed to what, and what was a personal item or free for use. They even had simple pantry items for use as well.

Unfortunately the house is on a very busy street, but the plus side is that the famous Bolton Potholes were right down the road. Easy access to tourist things such as Ben and Jerry's, glass blowing, the Cider Mill, and two grocery stores.

I would recommend this to older people who are looking for the escape of city life.
