About the property

3 level home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Custom home built by the owner in 2004. Country setting in an orchard with Middlebury College just a five minute drive away. This is a quiet neighborhood surrounded by rural estates, and operating farms and orchards. The house has 3 levels with the main living area on the 2nd floor. This is a great space for a relaxing getaway; an artists retreat or for a group of skiers, riders or hikers. Come back after a day of outdoor adventure to warm radiant heat under elm and travertine floors. Several architectural details created from local hardwoods. The 2nd level has a large private deck facing west for evening sunsets and bbq grilling. This level includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area with one queen bedroom and a large bathroom/laundry. The shower is floor to ceiling travertine with built in bench. The upper loft is two spaces separated by a curved balcony. One end is for reading - with a work desk, monitor and printer. The other loft space has two full size beds tucked out of the way. The first level entry has large built in cubbies and storage spaces for ski gear and backpacks. This level also has a separate queen bedroom with an additional futon. This bedroom has a private bathroom with walk in tiled shower. This is a great house to relax, read, write, paint or create. It's also a great jumping off place for a huge variety of activities.

Charming, Comfortable, Totally Private but Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house has such charm. I felt comfortable the minute I arrived. It's well stocked with pots and pans, cooking utensils, spices, etc. Beds were comfy and the showers were fantastic. We had a blast playing with the Google Home, asking the weather and telling it to play all kinds of songs while we made meals in that fantastic kitchen. Our only disappointment was that we never got a glance of the donkeys from the farm next door. This was a fantastic home base for our trip. It's close to restaurants, shops and most importantly for our trip: the Middlebury Tasting Trail. Whether your interest is beer, wine, spirits or all of the above, there is something for you on the Trail! Be sure to check out the BBQ place in town with a mechanical bull!

Would love to visit again soon!

A slice of heaven!

Beautiful, cosy, well appointed home perfect for a long weekend visiting our daughter/sister who is a student at Middlebury. Peaceful, bucolic setting, plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy real quality family time. We hope to be back again for future weekends. Thank you!
