Londonderry House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath House w/ Stellar Kitchen and Hot Tub - Great For Groups

With an industrial kitchen, hot tub, pool room, projector screen, and wraparound picture windows, you and your group will feel right at home enjoying the woodland splendor of Vermont. Great for large groups, this house sleeps 10* comfortably, but more in a pinch. It is Bromley, Stratton, and Magic Mountain adjacent, but nearby to many other Vermont-esque activities like leaf peeping, antiquing, snowshoeing, x-country skiing, hiking (of course), and swimming/kayaking in the summer. Directly beyond the brook behind the house is a state forest with trails.

On the first floor of the house, you will enter into an open concept kitchen to the right with a large island surrounded by bar stools, a 6-burner stove top with two ovens and a free standing griddle. There are kitchen appliances aplenty and many basics to chef up the perfect meal without having to buy your own flour, etc.

To the left is the living room: gigantic picture windows lined with happy houseplants, a projector screen for movie watching and video gaming (on many systems), and cheeky blue walls to remind you that you aren't in Kansas anymore. A 1/2 bath is conveniently located off the living room. Head into the sunroom to play some cards, board games, strum the guitar, or gaze out at the Flood Brook babbling serenely below, as you are situated in a tree house like atmosphere 60' above the bank.

When you get tired, retire upstairs to the mystical Dragon Room and it's lifelike murals to guard over your dreams while you sleep in one of the rooms two twin beds. Across the hall a large room sleeps two on a queen (with plenty of floor space + mattress to share). A full and bathroom with laundry is also located upstairs.

A full bedroom with a queen bed and private bath is located downstairs, as is the pool room with a full sized pool table - a great place to crank the tunes and hang out. Of course, you will want to go out back and take a soak in the 7-person hot tub. Alternative sleeping spaces include a queen bed on the landing, a futon in the basement, a pull out sofa, and hammock. Floor space throughout the house is plentiful and great for air mattresses (BYO air mattress, please!).

When our location is not buried under four feet of powder, you will find a green lawn usually set with corn hole and badminton, a tidy vegetable garden, a basketball hoop, picnic tables, charcoal and propane grills, and rustic steps down to the very cold brook (which is still good for a dunk!). We are rural enough so you are protected from the prying eyes of our very few neighbors, but close enough to make it to the grocery store, bar, and many restaurants and tourist attractions in minutes. This is the perfect place to bring your crew and relax in style. We should know, we do it all the time!

*Our house sleeps 10 but fits up to 15 (or more), additional guests will be charged $20 per person per night.

About Anderson Page + Kate Ziegler

Originally from the urban sphere of Boston, Mass., Anderson and Kate escaped the bonds of city life to the rural freedom of Vermont. Here we build tiny houses, work on home improvements, explore the forest, and travels when we can.

Anderson Page + Kate Ziegler purchased this house in 2013

Why Anderson Page + Kate Ziegler chose Stratton and Bromley Ski Areas

No where else in New England can you be so close to cities (Boston, Albany, NYC, Burlington, AND Montreal) while still stepping out of your backdoor and into a state forest lined with seldom used trails. Our village sits in a very quiet and unique part of southern Vermont, filled with lightly used second homes, which allows us privacy yet amazing access to natural resources. And no traffic - ever.

Cozy, close to skiing - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have had a better weekend at Anderson and Katie's place. The house is lovely down to the last detail, and Anderson and Kate made sure we had everything we needed! The location is beautiful and close to great skiing. Love the kitchen, hot tub, pool table, and creek in the background especially! Would go back tomorrow.

Perfect Ski Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Kate and Anderson were very easy to work with and responded quickly to all questions we had before our stay and during our stay. The house was very cute and clean and in the perfect location to go skiing at Stratton, Magic, or Bromley. We traveled with 8 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. The open floor plan made it easy for everyone to hang out and the big open kitchen was good for cooking Sunday brunch! The hot tub was nice and hot and ready for us when we got there, and the decor was homey and inviting. This was my first homeaway experience and it was definitely positive. I would recommend Kate and Anderson's house to anyone. Thanks for the hospitality!

Great location; great home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine adults spent a very comfortable and relaxing long weekend in this home. Plenty of space to spread out. Kitchen was spacious and made it easy for us to cook and socialize together as a group. The fireplace in the kitchen was a huge plus! The built in griddle made breakfast prep fast for a large group. Easy access to hiking, downhill and x-country skiing. Grocery store was minutes away. Overall, the home was clean and cozy with plenty of necessary cooking tools, linens and towels. The owners were readily accessible when needed, but provided plenty of instructions regarding the use of the home making it easy to enjoy the home immediately upon arrival. Our group of friends have been renting together for a number of years and declared this our best trip yet!

Map

Nearest Airport
100 Miles
Bradley International Airport
Car: necessary

Sherwood Forest is located within an hour of FIVE major ski areas (Stratton, Bromley, Magic, Okemo, and Killington) and deeply situated in pristine natural wilderness.

Our village, Londonderry, is very small and not very tourist-y, which is a blessing considering how near we are to ski areas. However, many restaurants, state parks, recreational/hiking opportunities, and secluded wilderness areas are extremely local to us.
