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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Patricia Evans purchased this house in 1965
The place was great!Really happy with the house and it was plenty big for our group (we didn't even use one of the bedrooms).
We stayed at this home in February 2017. It has a great view of mount Mansfield. We had 6 couples stay over and the sleeping arrangements were comfortable for all with more room if need be. Kitchen and dining area are open with a large table which made a great common area for all of us to hang out comfortably. The living room and fireplace are very close and also open to the dining area so others could relax by the fire and still be near the rest of us. We love the house, second time staying and will definitely be staying there again next year.
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!
Our group of sixteen had an amazing weekend at Mansfield House. The house is huge and was able to accommodate all of us comfortably. The property is beautiful and spacious, with a large meadow and pond in the front and a field, woods, and Mt. Mansfield in the back. We saw three deer cross through the field on our first afternoon at the house and we took that as a sign of a great weekend to come. Although the weather wasn't ideal it didn't detract from our stay in the slightest and we had a blast cooking group meals in the open kitchen and playing games near the blazing hearth in the roomy living/dining room area. Our stay at Mansfield House exceeded our expectations and, after this unforgettable getaway, we would gladly return again.
Had a great stay for a great price at Mansfield house with plenty of room to accommodate my large group. Would highly suggest to anyone interested in staying.
We had a great time, and the house was even better than advertised. So many rooms, and the way the house was laid out kept any noise in the main part of the house (living room and kitchen) isolated to that area - so if people wanted to go to bed early, that was totally fine. The kitchen was huge and there was more than enough space for everyone.
The house was perfect for our family vacation. There was plenty of space to spread out between the living room and den. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked with cooking pans and utensils. We enjoy cooking together and prepared several dinners. Even though we experienced a blizzard one day, the house stayed warm. We were able to walk and sled on the property. We celebrated two birthdays, the start of a new business, and an engagement all in the space of a few days. We would highly recommend this space.
The town of Underhill is a relaxing setting for a quiet country vacation or a convenient location for access to skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, swimming, as well as shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing. It can all be done from this spectacular location.
