Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Den, Sleeps 14

WELCOME!

Mansfield House, a lovely and spacious mountain home, sits on 100+ acres of classic Vermont property. Located at the base of Mt. Mansfield and nearby Smugglers Notch, a vacation here is filled with a wide range of seasonal activities for the active and the relaxed.

BEDROOM HIGHLIGHTS

There are two sleeping areas at opposite ends of the house. Two bedrooms (queen and king beds) are at the northern end of the house, with a shared bathroom featuring a field stone wall, tile, and walk-in shower. The southern end of the house features a bunkroom and 2 queen bedrooms, one with a twin trundle bed. There is a shared bathroom for these rooms, featuring a Vermont slate floor, vessel sink, and tub/shower. Also at this end of the house is the Master bedroom with king Tempur-pedic bed and a large en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and sweeping view of Mount Mansfield. All the bedrooms have been recently renovated and each has lovely linens and quilts.

INTERIOR HIGHLIGHTS

The interior features cathedral ceilings, a large living room with field stone fireplace, and a field stone wall in the dining area, as well as wide oak and brick floors. Lovely views delight visitors from every window.

An open kitchen/dining area is at the center of the house. The 12-person birdseye maple dining room table has a sweeping view of Mt. Mansfield. This open area is wonderful for group cooking and socializing while enjoying the colors of a magnificent sunset.

There is a den off the kitchen with a second fireplace, sofa bed, and a second TV - nice for movies, cozy chats, or quiet reading. This space is also wonderful for children's movies, board games, or a quick escape from the bustle of the household.

We also take great pride in a very clean house - all the rooms are cleaned professionally using only all natural products.

OUTDOOR HIGHLIGHTS

The outdoor hot tub is available for soaking, while gazing up at Mt. Mansfield, or the stars.

A beautiful field above the pond is suitable for a large tent for hosting family reunions, small weddings, and other events. The pond is stocked with trout yearly and is great for fly-fishing and swimming.

The two acre swimming pond, sandy beach, beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens, and walking/XC skiing (or snowshoe) trails offer both activity and quiet, suitable for the energetic and the serene.

Looking for the country life and time with family or friends? You will love this setting.

Two very popular Vermont destinations are close:Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory is 30 minutes away, and the Shelburne Museum, a large and fascinating 'living' museum is 45 minutes away. Lake Champlain, UVM, and St. Michaels College are all within easy reach. Hunting is possible in the area but not on the property please. Space for badminton, croquet, and soccer behind house, visible from kitchen and living room. Large swimming pond in front field.

About Patricia Evans

Built in 1965, Mansfield House is owned by a large Vermont family that enjoys seasonal visits here for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and swimming. Our parents/grandparents designed and built the property, and as a result Mansfield House has the feel of a visit to a family home. Photos of the family decorate one long hallway, and the Airplane room hints of the adventurous aviation history of Granddad's days as a pilot. The gardens and clear view to the mountain still reflect the family's love of beautiful outdoor spaces.

Mountain view bliss!

  • 5 of 5

I went up to stay here for a relaxing weekend with my girlfriends. The house had a perfect layout so we all had our own space and a beautiful kitchen to gather in. The view is breathtaking. From the kitchen window you see a beautiful open field, pond and mountains. You turn around and there is the spacious backyard with another beautiful mountain. Sleeping in the master bedroom had the view of the backyard and mountain. Absolutely incredible! It was easy to get to, relaxed and it even had a walking trail behind the house. We loved the hot tub at night under the stars and sitting by the beautiful fire. It was extremely clean, cozy and open. I highly suggest for a family/friend getaway!

Owner's Response: Our family and friends still gather at Mansfield House, in all seasons, so we agree that it is all the adjectives that you have used here: beautiful, breath-taking, spacious, clean, cozy, and open. And I'm so glad to hear about renters heading out on an adventure on our walking trails! The hot tub is the best after any kind of outing, and what a way to see stars - the best. Come again!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in the house. The house is very tastefully appointed and charming and very clean. It really didn't seem like a rental as it had all sort of nicknacks and books and cookbooks - as if someone really lives there. The kitchen had every sort of cooking utensil you could ever need and in fact it seemed like we were staying at a friend's house rather than a rental. It is located in a quiet lovely spot with mountain and meadow views. Everyone fell in love with the huge black lovable Newfoundland that welcomed us when we arrived. The house is great for two families. We had 4 adults, 2 small children and 6 older teenagers and had more than enough room. The house seems to have 3 sections: two bedrooms on the left side - one with a queen and one with a king - for the adults with a shared bath, which can be closed off from the living room for privacy (or to keep out the noise), a large kitchen and living room section with huge real fireplace, and then another bedroom section on the otherside of the house that sleeps 12 (4 bedrooms and a den with queen pullout couch) - perfect for all the kids to take over that part of the house. The kitchen setup was great for group cooking and chatting. We got all the kids making homemade pizzas around the large center island and they all had a ball. Even our teenagers absolutely loved the house and want to go back - especially for the hot tub and snow rolling at night! Patricia was also so helpful answering questions and even mailing back some shoes we had left there. We all hope to go back next year for a longer stay. Thank you for such a nice memory!

Owner's Response: This is in fact our very well-loved family home that our mom and dad designed and built. We want it to feel homey and comfortable, but uncluttered so renters have plenty of space. The kitchen is really good fun for group cooking, and the two separate sleeping areas are very well-suited to the needs of differing age groups. We are so grateful to have renters who treat our property with care and respect, and enjoy our property as their own home-away-from home.

Great getaway for a quiet retreat or family get together!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Mansfield house for a 13 person bachelor party. The first thing you notice is how much space the property offers. Everyone had a there own place to sleep and the kitchen was more than large enough to keep everyone full. Everything has been carefully prepared by the owner to maximize our comfort. 11/10 would stay here again!

Striking, peaceful, comfortable- a fantastic location for your vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this rental to anyone looking to gather a group of people. It combines modern comforts with eclectic, quirky charm. From the landscape and the view of Mt Mansfield, to the old family photos and subtle details, the Mountain House sets the tone for a fantastic time.The owner and property manager were responsive and available prior to the stay and made important documents and information easily accessible. Thank you!!

Spectacular Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a long weekend for my family to join us for my daughter’s graduation from University of Vermont. The property is gorgeous and picturesque. The home has a fantastic homey feel with plenty of space and comfort for the 10 adults attending. The highlights are the spacious kitchen, dining and living space and the huge windows affording spectacular views of Mount Mansfield behind the home and the pond in front. We were able to take advantage of hiking trails that can be accessed from the home. There was not one thing I didn’t love about our stay at Mansfield House!!

Perfect New Year!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at this house during the New Year with my friends. The house was gorgeous with plenty of space for our group of 10. There was a magnificent view from all of the windows on the mountains covered in snow. We spent most of our time by the huge stone fireplace playing games and talking. The whole atmosphere in the house was very relaxing and cozy. At night we would sit in the hot tub outside even though it was snowing. Would definitely rent it again especially during the winter!

Owner's Response: Mansfield House is always great for special occasions, as well as any other time sitting by the fire, soaking in the tub, and enjoying gorgeous views is what you are looking for. Come and see for yourself!
