Overview

Lake Champlain Valley House Rental Photos and Description

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 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.

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.

Amazing place- Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to have a family gathering! The house was ideal and you cannot beat the location and spectacular views of Mt. Mansfield. The house has a great lay out with ample bedrooms and lots of space for our family of 11 to hang out. Comfortable beds, a great kitchen with everything you need to cook a delicious meal, games to play, a gorgeous back deck to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets, fabulous hiking right up the road, a great pond for dipping and playing in (beach towels provided!), and wonderful hosts who were always quick to respond to the many questions I had while booking. It couldn't have been more perfect and relaxing! I highly recommend the Mansfield house for an excellent vacation at any time of year. Whether you are a large party or small you will have a wonderful Vermont experience in a perfect setting. We'll be back!

Amazingly beautiful home with picturesque views. The backyard has plenty of room for activities, as our group took advantage of the beautiful weather to play numerous lawn games (whiffle ball, corn-hole) and take in some sun. Owners are very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions we had. All 12 of us loved our stay and would highly recommend the Mansfield house to anyone that asks!

Owner's Response: This review has described the outdoor fun that is possible at Mansfield House! We love summer here too - you could not ask for a more beautiful setting with the mountain views, the pond for swimming, the hot tub, and the gorgeous landscaping and gardens. The inside spaces are also very accommodating, as many of our reviews have noted, with lots of room for group cooking, and two living room areas with TVs. We think it's an awesome place to hang out with family and friends, and we are glad that renters enjoy it so much.

Great spot for young families!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Mansfield House. It's a great spot for families with young children and for those looking to enjoy the outdoors in any season. The sleeping quarters at each end of the house provide privacy when needed and the open kitchen, dining and living space are great for spending time with family and friends. The large stone fireplace is a particularly nice feature for cold winter nights.

Wedding Weekend with Friends and Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mansfield house with close friends during our wedding weekend. The house is spacious and cozy and is equipped with all the necessary amenities, yet still maintains a charming rustic character. There are two sleeping wings. One end has a study with a pull out bed, a king bedroom with attached bath, a room with 3 twins, a room with a full or queen, another separate bathroom and a room with a queen on bottom of a bunk bed. The other wing has 2 bedrooms one with a king and one with a queen bed and a separate bathroom. In the middle of the house you have the dining room and kitchen that are very open with plenty of room for all guests (this is where the 14 of us spent most of our time). The living room has lots of seating for guests. There are many games and books. The property is picturesque, there is lots of room for activities, even a pond. Panoramic views of the valley to the west, in the other direction Mount Mansfield literally sits in the backyard. We enjoyed a nice hike from the nearby Underhill State Park trailhead. The homeowners are accommodating were great to work with. Give this place the respect it deserves and follow the house rules and cleaning guidelines so it remains available for years to come. Our stay at Mansfield House made our weekend truly amazing. Thank You.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

An amazing house that our group has been coming back to for three years now for ski weekends in the area. The house is very cozy and feels very much like a family home as opposed to just a rental property. The kitchen has everything you might need to prepare big meals for a group of 15. Patricia, who manages the property is always very helpful and fast to respond to questions. We are all looking forward to our next stay.
