Spacious home located on 10 private acres of wooded wilderness. Great open floor plan suitable for large groups and family gatherings. Kid-friendly; game room and sleeping on separate level. Lodge decor: log beds and duvets. 2 master suites. Plenty of parking. Dining table seats 10 very comfortably. Views of Magic Mountain from the great room and kitchen in Winter. Lots of windows to enjoy the wilderness from inside as well as plenty of terrain to snowshoe, hike, play paintball or bird watch. Relaxing place to escape, you won't want to leave this comfortable home.
summer fun: This wonderful home is in the perfect location for escaping all civilization..yet it is so easy to get to places of interest. 20 minutes to Manchester; 15 minutes to Bromely or Stratton Mountains; 20 mintues to Weston and 30 minutes to Ludlow (Okemo Mountain). There is so much wilderness around, hiking and birdwatching; lakes for swimming, boating and fishing all within a mile. Bikeriding is a paradise in this area..scenic views everywhere. Streams allow for splashing fun and cooling ..
winter fun: There is so much to do here in winter. From hanging around the great room sitting by a fire, to sledding outside on the property. So close to Magic Mountain- you can see it from the house..within 30 minutes you can be skiing down Bromley or Stratton's slopes. There's plenty of cross country trails nearby as well as snowshoeing, which can be done on the property..
culture: This part of Vermont is full of culture, there are always festivals and art shows, and plays (weston playhouse)..the famous Vermont Country Store is minutes away. Farmers markets in the summer showcase the local merchants and artists. There are quilt shops and potters all around the area.
My husband and I have been avid outdoors-people our entire lives. Unfortunately our career paths didn't lead us to being able to live in the wilderness. We have vacationed in Vermont year after year, and after having lived in Europe and experienced the Alps...we had to have a piece of the mountains for ourselves. Our children are huge skiers and love the summer water sports and hiking/biking that Vermont offers...and of course, Bromley's summer fun park! We hope that our home is as wonderful a retreat for you as it is for us; leaving reality behind for a stay in a mountain hideaway!
Maureen purchased this house in 2009
If we could live in Vermont full time, we would!!! We bought this home to have a piece of paradise and the fresh air and ability to relax and enjoy nature. And to get our 10 acres of land that everyone dreams of.
This was our second year renting this property and as good as we all remembered it, I think we now appreciate it even more.
Here are the catchwords you should take away from reading this review:
Large with room for 15 without feeling crowded; lovingly maintained; surround-sound entertainment system with iPod auxiliary source adapter; 3 1/2 baths with tons of hot water; fully stocked kitchen tools including an immersion blender for sauces; caretakers that are local and always available.
On top of it all, we had the first significant snow of this wacky winter so it couldn't have been any better.
The living room with windows on three sides and a cathedral ceiling are a magnificent gathering place for friends and family. The owners and caretaker were great.
Really nice, well maintained property, feels like new. Many lovely details, the owners put their hearts into it, truly a home away from home. We had a group of 10 adults and 2 children and never felt closed-in (roomy). Been skiing/traveling over 50 years and this place is up with the best.
For alpine skiing, Magic Mt. is minutes away and deserted. The Stratton crowd frowns at the mere mention (good God, no high speed chairs?) but don't be fooled, it's like a private mountain and what Vermont was like before skiing became synonymous with real estate development schemes.
In fairness, both Bromley and Stratton are close and have all the amenities of world-class ski resorts, including excellent child-care/learn to ski programs.
All of this within 4 hours of NY/NJ. My advice...book early.
I have stayed at this property in both the summer and winter. Both were equally wonderful. All the modern amenities you have at your own home and so much space to spread out. It's a great mountain property with lots of privacy. Close to the mountains and shopping. I hope to be able to stay here again.
Stayed 3 nights ,8 guys over 45 & 2 of us over 60. Lots of room for all of us. The beds are great & the layout is perfect , kitchen & family room are large with room for all.
Pictures on web site do not do this place justice.
Recommended for old guys , can't go wrong.
We had a great weekend at this house. Worked very well for 2 families and little kids, lots of toys and things to do inside + a great yard for playing in the snow. Close to a few different mountains and the owners were very responsive, helpful and interested that we have a good time.
the property is located off of Thompsonburg Road in South Londonderry. The closest shopping center is in the village of Londonderry, a short 5 minute or so drive. There are restaurants and post office, bank and hardware store, etc..all within a 5-7 minute drive. Manchester is 20 minutes away and Weston is about 15 minutes..from late spring to mid-autumn, the saturday farmer's market is a must-do..right in town.
Other Activities: snowboarding, wildlife viewing, mini golf, shopping, kayaking, snowmobiling, skiing- both nordic and downhill, snow shoeing, trekking, canoeing,
Golf: There are several golf courses in the area. Stratton mountain has its own golf school for people of all ages.
Ski: stratton, bromley, magic and okemo
All are within 30 minutes. Magic is 5 minutes (max), bromley and stratton are 15 minutes and okemo is 30 minutes fro. The property.
