Overview

About the property

Country House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5 adults plus up to 4 kids)

Discover a peaceful and private retreat just 20 miles from Mt. Snow and 10 miles south of Wilmington at this beautiful post and beam home located high on a hill with a beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding Green Mountains of Vermont.

Come here to enjoy a genuine and rustic Vermont experience. Whether you are skiing Mount Snow, leaf peeping, exploring Brattleboro, antiquing, writing or painting ... we invite you to experience this special and unique setting.

This twenty-five acre property includes brooks, stone walls, woodlands, wildlife and open vistas. A wrap-around deck, screened porch and windows galore all allow you to enjoy the views. Seasonal furniture and a gas grill are provided on the deck.

A wood-burning stove, which is inserted into a floor to ceiling brick chimney, will offer warmth and cheer by a glowing fire. Free, unlimited split and stacked wood provided!

Plenty of comfortable space to spread out and relax with your family. House sleeps five adults in the three bedrooms. Up to 4 children may be accommodated in the basement. Roll away bed and crib available. Master suite has a queen, 2nd bedroom a queen, and 3rd bedroom a twin.

Master suite is upstairs, off the loft, and includes a stargazing skylight window over the queen size bed, a private balcony with beautiful views, and attached master bath with large jacuzzi tub and separate step-in shower.

Keep in touch, if need be, with fast WIFI, land line and unlimited domestic long distance. Unlike many remote retreats your cell phone will most likely have reception here on top of the hills. Direct TV, Netflix, DVR, and high quality stereo system provided.

This is as close to perfect seclusion as you can find, and still be conveniently located. Easily accessible to Mt Snow, Brattleboro, and Bennington. Quaint and historic Jacksonville VT is just 3 miles away and home of the favorite Jacksonville General Store where you will find local produce, custom butcher shop, Vermont maple syrup, Vermont cheeses and a selection of wines. Lake Whitingham (Harriman Reservoir) which offers beautiful beaches, boating ( including canoeing and kayaking) is only five miles north of Jacksonville.

It all adds up to a perfect combination of peace and quiet and accessibility in a comfortable home in a beautiful setting. Bring your children and your dog and have a family adventure, or make it your romantic hideaway, a secluded spot for artistic pursuits or a launching pad for your athletic interests.

You will feel at home away from home at Almost Heaven.

Cozy and perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are very cozy and secluded, perfect for our group weekend getaway! Chris was very helpful and responsive, especially during a near blizzard, during which he called to make sure the driveway was plowed and we were able to get out cars out. We brought our pup who loved running around in the large backyard area while we took turns sledding down the hill. Kitchen was perfect for making a large meal for our group, especially after a day of skiing at nearby Mt. Snow!

Wonderful house, very clean, would definitely visit again.

Thank you!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, great property and location. The house was clean and fully stocked with linens, dishes and all the little things you tend to forget at home. We couldn't find some trails because of all the fresh snow but enjoyed the property nonetheless. About 30 minutes from Mount snow . Definitely would rent again.

Very cozy and roomy

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The house was about a 30 min drive to Mt Snow and quick 20 min to Wilmington. It reminded us of going to our grandmas house in Lake George, lots of things to look at and very well organized with plenty of clean sheets and linens.

Thank you!

Perfect ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent our NYE at this amazing property. We loved the fact that the house is kind of secluded and all you see around is only snow covered trees. The house is very clean and cozy, it has plenty of cookware, and we definitely enjoyed the master bedroom Jacuzzi. I should mention that our favorite spot was rocking chairs next to the fireplace, perfect setup for winter evening to enjoy glass of wine.

The house is very conveniently located, only 30 min drive to Mt. Snow. Also, the owner, Chris, is very polite and helpful, he replied to any question or request within an hour. We were very pleased with our stay, wish we had spend there more than just a weekend.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home. Was exactly as described. Home is perfectly secluded with breathtaking grounds. Home's interior is literally picture perfect and charming. Anything and everything you will need during your stay has been thought of and is inside; from firewood to baking sheets, the owners have thought of everything and stocked the home. The worst part of our stay was having to pack up and head home.
