1800S FARMHOUSE, CHARMING, 180 ACRES, POND, SPECTACULAR VIEWS, PRIVACY

Underhill House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 max

Our 1865 farmhouse is nestled into the west slope of Pleasant Valley, with a commanding view of majestic Mt. Mansfield. In the midst of 180 very private acres of pristine woodlands and breathtaking mountain views, the bedrooms are cozy and the kitchen/dining and living rooms are open space, light and airy. With recent renovations, everything is clean, solid and functionally sound without sacrificing the country feel of an old Vermont farmhouse. Decorated in warm colors, each room has its own charm and character. The master bedroom is on the ground floor in its own “wing,” with two beds, a queen and a twin, and a private full bath. The other two bedrooms are upstairs and share a full bathroom – the one to the right has four twins; the one to the left has a queen and a twin. We have one child-size roll-away. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for cooking gourmet feasts. Our washer and dryer ensure that you are ready for anything, whether you brought enough clothes or not.

Underhill, Jeffersonville and the surrounding area offer an abundance of distractions for every taste. Outdoor enthusiasts will find adventure in exploring the network of trails right outside our door, whether for cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledding, toboganning, mountain biking, hiking or simply walking (we have some equipment, and you can rent snowshoes and bikes for the day or week at our local stores). Underhill’s got one of the best sledding hills anywhere, and that’s just a five minute drive. If you prefer to take walks on the woods trails or on beautiful country roads, you’ll be stunned by the beauty and majesty of the unspoiled land and Mt. Mansfield.

This treasure is a place to get away from the hustle, to fill your lungs with truly fresh air, and to “re-charge your batteries.” With our own pond right off the deck, swimming (summer) and skating (winter) are available on impulse. Our larder is loaded with teas, coffees, hot chocolate, and other cooking/eating essentials, which you are welcome to use, though we ask that they be replaced if usage is heavy. Our caretaker and housekeeper will be happy to pitch in if you’d like their help while at the house. When we say 'vacation house,' we mean it!

As for skiing, Smuggler’s Notch Ski Resort (known to locals as “Smuggs”, only 15-20 minutes away) offers groomed cross-country ski trails, a skating arena, and excellent downhill skiing and snow-boarding. Stowe is just 45 minutes away (or you can ski to it from Smuggs) and Jay Peak is about the same. If variety is a compulsion, Sugarbush and Mad River are about an hour south.

For those seeking more pastoral or cerebral activities, there is no lack of beautiful vistas for the photographer and artist; there are antique shops, art galleries, farmers markets, restaurants, theatres, and shops all within a 40 minute radius, including Stowe village, Jeffersonville and Vermont’s largest city, Burlington. And the turn of seasons in fall is utterly spectacular as Vermont’s legendary sugar maples put on their riotous display of leafy colors.

As the sun sets and the incredibly clear sky shows off a plethora of stars and constellations, you can come home to relax and toast your toes in front of the big stone fireplace, far from the noise and hectic pace of resort villages with their condos, dense living and commercial traffic. Put on soft music and stretch out, and rest your tired muscles in this serene and private setting!

Our home is the perfect place for your Vermont vacation. It is also the perfect setting for small family celebrations like anniversaries or graduations. Invite your family, friends and relatives to stay here with you. There are plenty of businesses in the area that would be happy to help you with catering and other services you might need. Contact us with any questions or concerns you have. We’ll be glad to help!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful vacation at this beautifully located, clean, comfortable home. The views of the surrounding landscape are truly breath-taking. The home has clean bathrooms and comfortable beds. The owner (Mark) could not have been more helpful, including calling us on the day we were travelling here to tell us there was a road detour near the house.
We really enjoyed our time in this great place, and look forward to returning!

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two nights to visit the Jericho Harvest Market. I'm originally from Vermont and we currently live on Long Island, NY. The house is so beautiful and inviting and the property is just gorgeous. It's about a 45 minute drive to Burlington area, 25 minutes to Essex, 15 minutes to Jeffersonville or Cambridge. There are only three homes on this road and this one is situated all the way at the top. We would highly recommend and will stay here again one day!

Wonderful house in the country!

  • 5 of 5
This property was everything we'd hoped for, and more, with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of room to spread out. The owner was extremely conscientious and responsive to any questions we had. We hope to return someday and would definitely recommend this spot to anyone seeking peace and quiet in a gorgeous setting.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
All the charm of an 1800s cabin with a gourmet kitchen, modern air-conditioning, heat, and new master bathroom. We were charmed and enjoyed our stay. All the amenities of a great hotel within the confines of a historic house. Drive time to the cabin from Burlington was 20 minutes. It was summer and the kids loved the games and lake. Owner made everything easy for us. Much better than the hotel at the conference.

Great Winter Weekend!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I had a great weekend away in the Underhill property. The house was very secluded, with a very large property for our dog to run around. It was so nice to cook, sit by the fire and play board games with a few friends. The property was close enough to Smuggler's Notch and Burlington for day trips to each. Mark was so helpful with all the information about the house and the area. Definitely recommend staying here!
