Beautiful Post and Beam construction home with cathedral ceiling and loft looking down to living area and dining area. Lovely ceiling height fireplace chimney with gas Hearthstone fireplace. Nestled on 6 acres with a majestic view of Mount Mansfield from the living room and large swimming pond from the window seat in the dining area, you will feel right at home here, just 20 minutes from Stowe Mountain Resort.
Cross country ski, snowshoe or hike right out the door and explore the 300 acres of Vermont Forestry land adjoining our property. Large play structure for kids is set under a canopy of Maple trees and easily viewed from the house and deck. Children can jump off the diving rocks into the swimming pond and swim to the floating raft, or search for newts and frogs off the dock. Footbridges over the creek provide hours of adventuring or just sit in the steamer chairs on the beach, enjoying the spring-fed sparkling pond.
Stainless appliances in the kitchen, large pine dining table (perfect for games) and large playroom in walkout lower level make it a perfect family getaway.

This is a lovely family home in a gorgeous setting, fully equipped with everything that a family needs for a relaxing and fun get-away. Only minutes from Stowe with all the activities that the mountain and the town have to offer and close to tourist sites such as Ben and Jerry's, maple sugar farms etc. Tania was prompt at responding to messages/inquiries and totally helpful in giving us advice on things to do with the children. We would highly recommend this property.
My family and I have been coming here for the past 5 years and it is by far one of our favorite vacations. This home offers everything you could possibly imagine, a swimming pond in the summer, ice rink in the winter, hills to sled, paths to go cross country skiing and hiking, beautiful view of Mt. Mansfield and a close drive to town and shops. Even with all of this, you are still nestled away in your own private sanctuary. The house is decorated so nicely that you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. My children love coming here because of the huge yard that they can freely explore. They are always guaranteed to find something new and exciting. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a place to stay near the action of Stowe, but without the crowds of the resorts.
This was an amazing property with great amenities. The house was very comfortable with a pretty, open-plan kitchen and living room so that we could cook and entertain at the same time. The large fridge and dishwasher were great. The views were spectacular. Mount Mansfield is the backdrop of every photo we took at the house. The sunsets were awe-inspiring. On the first morning there, we woke up to find a moose grazing in the back yard outside the dining room. The property is huge and adjacent to a nature preserve, so a variety of nature walks were waiting for us right out the back door! Our daughter had hours of fun skipping rocks on the pond, adventuring in the woods at the side of the property and playing on the great jungle gym in the back yard. The town of Stowe was only about ten minutes away. The house was the perfect distance away from the town, so that we could enjoy Stowe and Mount Mansfield, but also feel like we were away from it all when we got back to the house. It was a great experience and we would highly recommend it.
