About the property

Stunning Beauty, Complete Privacy, and Total Comfort!

Our home offers true Vermont beauty, complete privacy, and total comfort. At first arrival you get an immediate sense of peacefulness and the feeling of life slowing down. The air is clean and crisp and there's no one to bother you. We have amazing views and great trails & woods to explore.

Our home lies nestled among some of Vermont's most beautiful mountains. We are located 30 minutes from Burlington, Stowe, and Montpelier. We are also close great restaurants, excellent breweries, Ben & Jerry's, and many other wonderful attractions. We take great pride in providing our guests with a memorable and reliable experience.

We are located in wooded area bordering Camel’s Hump State park and Robbins Mountain wildlife management area. We have excellent hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing from our backyard and nearby. From our driveway road is an expansive meadow with spectacular mountain views. Just down the road is a wonderful pond that offers year round recreation and beauty.

Our home is a 3-bedroom contemporary ranch with two levels. Each level offers privacy which sets up well for accommodating couples or families. The upper level features the master bedroom with a queen bed, walk in closet, TV with cable, and an attached master bath. The upper level also features an open floor plan with a living room, dining area, and full kitchen with modern appliances. The living area is a relaxing space with a wood stove, love seat, and full couch that seats 5. The upper level is ideal for cooking and entertaining. Attached to the dining area is a deck with a table, four chairs, and a new Weber gas grill.

The lower level has two bedrooms separated by French doors. One has a queen bed and the other has a full-sized bed. The lower level also has a full bathroom and a great room with a 50 inch Sony TV with cable and a premium surround sound system. The great room has a leather reclining couch and recliner. All aspects of our home are modern and have been recently updated.

We also have a two car garage and outdoor fire pit for camp fires.

About a half a mile from our house is Gillett pond, a 200-acre pond carved by glaciers millions of years ago. The pond is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors. It’s great for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, snowshoeing, skiing, ice skating, or just enjoying some fresh air and beautiful scenery. We have a canoe for guests to use. The pond is a short trip from the trail behind our house or from our road.

We're fully stocked! We include high-end linens, towels, soap, shampoo, tooth paste, ironing board, hair dryer, washer/dryer, laundry detergent, dishwasher, dishware, glassware, silverware, cookware, Keurig coffee maker with coffee, blender, spices, napkins, paper towels, wood for the stove/fire pit, and dining room table that seats 6.

About Lauren & Jeff

My wife and I, Lauren, currently live in Richmond, VT with our newly born daughter Abigail. We recently bought the house next door to make room for our growing family. My wife Lauren is a reading teacher and I'm a CPA. We are well established in our professions and are honest, reliable, responsive, and responsible. Lauren is an avid reader and likes working on picture projects and I enjoy home brewing and golfing. We enjoy all things outdoors, especially going for hikes from our back yard or canoeing in the pond just down the road. We are blessed to have found such a beautiful place to live and look forward to sharing it with our guests. Thank you for considering staying with us.

Lauren & Jeff purchased this house in 200

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. The home was perfect for our group-comfy and cozy. Plenty of space for people to gather and have fun. Well appointed kitchen. The walk to Gillette pond was nice-wish it had been frozen for skating. Beautiful spot anytime of year. Thank you for sharing.

clean comfortable and scenic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house while visiting our daughter who is a student at UVM. It is in a great location surrounded by beautiful woods and mountain views. The house was very clean and the beds are comfortable. It is only about a 1/2 hour drive to Burlington. We hope to return to this lovely house.

Lovely house well equipped

  • 5 of 5

House is pretty and in a pretty location. The hosts are generous - plenty of supplies. Also Jeff is a wonderful resource. He recommended a great restaurant for our last night. Richmond is convenient to Burlington, Ben and Jerrys and other points of interest. We had a great time.
