About the property

5 bedroom, 2 Full and 2 Half baths, sleeps 10

One of a kind location situated 25 feet above the Mad River. Minutes from Route 100, but so secluded you will find yourself immediately at peace once you hear the Mad River's soothing waters. The house boasts marble and granite bathrooms, Brazilian cherry floors, sunken living room with wet bar, dramatic wrap around deck seated over the river, perennial gardens, park like back yard with a fully furnished 70' long patio. The well equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, all appliances and cooking tools , eating area with large oval table, formal Dining Room, 720 sq foot living room and separate television/sitting room. Laundry room and expansive hallways.

High speed wireless, Satellite television, Washer/Dryer.

Location: If you have never seen New England, you are missing one of Mother Nature's miracles. This house is the perfect setting to see Northern New England with all the comforts of home. It is large, but cozy with great places to sit and view the river or read a great book.

There are unlimited day trips from this central Vermont location- scoot up to Montreal for a feel of Europe, drive for the afternoon to Woodstock or Middlebury and understand why Vermont is so special.

Hike the mountains, cycle in some of the best terrain around, or just grab a cup of coffee and watch the river flow by.

If there is a more gracious setting, we have not seen one.

There is a large wrap around deck off the living room and sitting room with outdoor table and seating area. One cannot underestimate this dramatic setting as you sit over the lighted river at night and listen to its soothing flow.. The back yard has a large 70' patio with table and seating for 6 as well as two additional sitting areas and surrounded by 4 perennial gardens and large manicured lawn. The property is so easy to reach from the main north, south artery, Route 100, yet so private and quiet you will relax immediately and enjoy Vermont as it should be enjoyed.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days over New Year's with 2 families totaling 10 people. It is a huge house with plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably, and has a huge amount of space to hang out in including a cavernous living room with a great gas fireplace. It was absurdly cold so we ended up spending a lot of time inside, but this was the perfect house to be locked up in. It's about 10 minutes from Sugarbush and about the same to downtown Waitsfield. I imagine it would be even better in the summer since it overlooks a beautiful landscape and has a large outdoor patio, and also sits right on top of a swimming hole in the Mad River. The owner was friendly and communicated well.

Mad River Vally is an uniquely picturesque valley set between two mountain ranges in heart of Vermont. The valley is intersected by the Mad River and the home of two major ski resorts- Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. The Valley, as it is called, is 3.5 hours from Boston, 1.5 hours from Montreal and surrounded by Woodstock, Stowe, Waterbury (Home of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream), and Burlington. The Valley offers a Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, a world class Soaring Center, 2 tennis resorts, horse back riding, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, tubing and just about any other outdoor activity you can name. The Fall Foliage is breath taking as it lights up the mountain side and highlights the river.
