We love listening to the peepers in the spring. In summer it is a great escape with the charming town of Woodstock just 25 minutes away and 10 minutes to Farm & Wilderness.
In Summer hunt for berries on the property: blackberry, wild strawberry and mountain blueberry. Explore Plymouth and get a glimpse of Vermont as it used to be in Coolidge's time. Pan for gold down the hill at Plymouth Five Corners, once the site of a thriving town during the gold rush but now taken back by nature.
Great food and restaurants are close at hand: local organic produce most of the year, artisanal cheeses, local beers...even local wine.
The house is well maintained, with quality furniture, superfast WIFI, and a spectacular open plan living/kitchen/dining area on the second floor. There is a central wood burning fireplace and lots of windows with views over the mountains and into the woods. Glass doors lead onto the deck and an outdoor barbecue. The deck is a seating/dining area in the summer months. On the same level there is a separate second lounge/ den/ office area with large windows and views and an adjacent shower room. This room has a queen sofa bed that converts to queen bed and two of the living room sofas convert to single beds.
The two bedrooms are on the first floor. The master bedroom with queen bed has a bathroom en suite. The second bedroom with queen bed has a bathroom a few feet down the hall. The laundry room is on this level.
The attached garage is a real plus in Winter. No clearing snow off the car in the morning, drive straight in walk into the house in the evening. NB YOU NEED 4 WHEEL DRIVE TO ACCESS THE PROPERTY IN THE WINTER. The driveway and the road to the house are steep. The road and driveway are plowed but especially during a storm you will need 4 wheel drive.

Beautiful, peaceful place with friendly, helpful host
Jill was an excellent host, helping when we needed it and giving us space otherwise. The house and property are beautiful and peaceful. The house is in excellent condition and very spacious. All in all a fabulous stay!
Wonderful house, in an ideal location
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in this house with our 6 month old baby. It was very comfortable and we had everything we needed to cook and relax. It was a great location for exploring the area and getting to the ski resorts.
The owners made sure that everything about the house was very clear and were very responsive to questions.
Excellent home for family get away
My family- 2 adults and 2 boys- stayed in this home for 2 weeks in the summer. It was really a home away from home. It is clean and has all the things you could need. The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of towels and good linens. The owner was easy to work with and helpful. She left us nice treats for our arrival. I would recommend it for a stay in the area. Its very convenient if you happen to have kids going to a farm and wilderness camp.
Fantastic weekend at Plymouth Retreat!
We had a wonderful 3 day weekend at the Plymouth Retreat. The house was very nicely set up and decorated and very comfortable for our family of 4. I enjoyed cooking meals in the beautiful open kitchen, and our kids (ages 7 & 9) enjoyed playing games and watching tv in front of the fireplace after a day of skiing at Okemo. The house is very conveniently located to the mountain, and it was easy to get back and forth. The owner left excellent detailed instructions about how to use everything in the house so we had no questions or concerns once we were there.
Great time in a Great house
Wonderful winter stay. The house was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We plan to come back
This is the 3rd Thanksgiving that my family has spent at Jill's amazing house. Jill does an amazing job at making your getaway perfect. From cleanliness to comfort this house does it all. The locations is nestled nicely in the mountains and very private. Jill keeps this house in great condition and we'll stocked with toiletries, kitchen necessities and the technology to keep us connected. We have never had any issues when we have stayed here. Jill lives not to far and if any issues would arise she is only a phone call away to resolve. We WILL be back next year to do it all over again as there is no way we would even consider staying anywhere else! Thanks Jill
We are close to Killington and Okemo, Ludlow and Woodstock but off the beaten track. We are minutes from Farm and Wilderness camps. Star Gazing is wonderful from here.
