This well maintained and family friendly two bedroom condo located in the Mad River Valley is the perfect place for a summer escape into the Green Mountains of Vermont. Enjoy the best that Vermont has to offer: easy access to numerous hiking trails including several access points to the Long Trail and a short drive to Camel’s Hump, mountain biking on the lift accessed trails at Sugarbush, canoeing or kayaking on the Mad River, fishing, horseback riding, golf, tennis and more!
There is a seasonal pool on the grounds with a breathtaking view of the mountains and a playground for the children. Or enjoy a refreshing dip in one of the swimming holes along the banks of the Mad River. Tennis courts are on the premises and beautifully maintained golf course within fifteen minutes at Sugarbush resort. Sugarbush also has two disc golf courses with for all levels and zip-line for the adventurous.
Centrally located makes for easy day trips to Burlington, Stowe, Waterbury, and other Vermont attractions. Drive into Burlington for a day trip to visit the aquarium, the Teddy Bear Factory or the Shelburne Museum. Don't forget the Magic Hat Brewery. For something a little different, take a cruise on Lake Champlain and look for 'Champ', the monster of the lake. Then go for lunch or dinner at the many restaurants in town. On the way home, take time to tour the Ben & Jerry factory in Waterbury and sample the up and coming new flavor.
There is always something available to do, but if you just want to put your feet up and relax, there is no better place than being in the heart of the Green Mountain State Forest.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I have been coming up to Vermont for over 30 years for skiing and summer vacations. I raised four daughters, all who learned to ski at Sugarbush and Mad River Glen and who now bring their families up to enjoy the serenity of the Green Mountains.
After skiing many mountains throughout northern New England, I kept returning to the Sugarbush/Mad River area. I chose the Battleground for its central location to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen but also for the summer features it offered (swimming pool, tennis courts, playground, hiking trail access) which made it the perfect summer vacation spot with my daughters.
Besides the easy access to skiing and hiking, it is the little gems of the property that my family loves - the easy hike up an old logging road to the beaver pond and seeing moose tracks, catching butterflies while picking wildflowers, the mountain streams where the kids would catch brook trout with their butterfly nets. This is a place where memories are made.
