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!

Gorgeous property!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Gorgeous Summer Weekend!

This is the perfect spot to get together with friends or family in the summer. Well cared for lawn was perfect for lawn games and the private pond was great for swimming and floating a like. The house was in excellent condition, very cozy with everything you need already there. The deck with a magnificent view of Mt. Mansfield was perfect for grilling and eating! There are plenty of little towns nearby for activities but we chose to spend the entire time on the property! Finally, the owner was very accessible and flexible to our needs.
Owner's Response: So pleased you were able to appreciate why we love this spot so much!

perfect, quiet weekend for family plus dog!

We're from Montreal and like spending weekends in Vermont to get away from the city. We've rented several VT cabins through homeaway and this turned out to be one of our favorites. The cabin was clean, well-maintained (beautiful bathrooms!), cozy and truly secluded (unlike some other homeaway listings which actually have two or three cabins in close quarters on what is advertised as "secluded property"). It has a great deck where we spent much of our time watching Mt. Mansfield. It's pet friendly, a must for our dog who had plenty of open space to run safely off-leash outside. Though it was too cold to go swimming, the pond made for a fun stroll-around with our baby. She loved watching the ducks! Note that trash needs to be packed out (and plan around the fact that dumps nearby appear to be closed on Sundays). The cabin is well-located - a quick drive to Jeffersonville, (a cute town with a great brunch place and convenient general store). We really appreciated the owner's responsiveness. We hope to be back!
Owner's Response: Sorry I didn't explain about trash: if you leave it in the barrel, we will dispose of it. We ask that recyclables be separated and wet garbage be left or disposed of in our composter. So pleased you got to appreciate the beauty and serenity of the place. Our family visits frequently, and we wouldn't impose on our guests anything we wouldn't enjoy ourselves!
