Orchard Cottage was lovingly restored a couple of years ago to a very high standard. It is decorated in soothing autumnal tones with very comfortable beds and lots of locally sourced antiques and artwork. It sits on a 20+ acre family estate that backs on to the wild and untouched Roxbury Mountain. Our main family home and cottage sit further up the hill affording you with complete privacy.
Orchard Cottage has 2 bedrooms and a den with pull out sofa. It comfortably sleeps 6 people.
Having originally purchased the main house next door, we jumped at the chance to buy Orchard Cottage when it became available. With a growing family, we needed space for all of our friends and family to congregate during the holidays. We live overseas but visit several times a year to ski, play in the Mad River, hike in the Green Mountains and be at peace in this really beautiful spot.
Heidi Ringsted purchased this house in 2006
Orchard Cottage is nestled into a ridge on Roxbury Mountain in the middle of the Green Mountains. Set below the main house beyond the apple treehouse and the orchard. It has it's own driveway and is completely private.
This cottage would be perfect for a small family or a couple looking for a unique Vermont getaway. The setting is very peaceful and romantic and the furnishings extremely luxurious. Whether you plan an active break taking advantage of all that the valley has to offer or you are seeking a cozy retreat to relax and watch the foliage change or the wild turkeys and deer roaming through the orchard, Orchard Cottage can supply all of that!
Old Roxbury Road is a private road and a 4WD is a must even though it is plowed continually throughout the winter.
We rented this house in february for a family ski trip and we enjoyed it very much. It is a beautifully restored house and is at a 15 min drive from Sugar Bush resort.
We stayed here with our three young children for a ski weekend in March. The cottage is beautiful and impeccably maintained. The layout is also very family-friendly for young kids. We enjoyed the beautiful fireplace and renovated kitchen, which was perfect for cooking in. The surrounding property is beautiful and offers terrific privacy.
Heidi was thoughtful and clear in the instructions. Booking was seamless. The cabin sits above a creek, on a quiet street you can walk on. Location is perfect to view the mountains, drive into town to dine or ski, and explore. The beds were all very comfortable. The kitchen was large and had all of the essentials anyone would need. Would love to rent this abode again!
This house is beautiful. Five very tall adults slept here comfortably. The property outside pristine and the view awesome. Also complete privacy. Thank you much for a beautiful 4th of July with my family!
My wife and I with our two young kids (5 &7) rented Orchard Cottage for several weekends this winter and could not have been more pleased. The cottage is tastefully decorated, impeccably clean, the beds and bedding were extremely comfortable, and the kitchen was a joy to cook in. The house sits beautifully in the hillside in a very private setting. Thanks Heidi for sharing your wonderful home with us!
We were so pleasantly taken by the Orchard House, super clean, well equipped and well built. Truly enjoyed ourselves and will be returning! Perfect in any weather or season and close to all kinds of activities, especially skiing in the winter time. Decent grocery shopping is within easy reach and surrounding country side is quiet and beautiful. No complaints!
This is a year round retreat with fabulous skiing in the winter and endless outdoor activities in the summer. You can leave the house and be on the slopes at Sugarbush in 20 minutes or if you prefer cross country skiing there are 2 great locations 5 minutes drive away. For a little variety you can also ski Mad River Glen or even Mount Mansfield in Stowe. If you prefer to snowshoe, you can go right from the house and up into the woods on Roxbury Mountain. In the summertime you can hike the Long trail, tube down the Mad River, glide at Sugarbush airport, swim in the numerous swimming holes and even paddle board or kayak on Blueberry Lake. As a family with young children, the Mad River Valley is full of endless possibilities. Equally, this hillside retreat would be perfect for a couple hoping for a romantic escape or some space and time to decompress. If you're a serious foodie, you will find everything you need in the valley. 3 minutes away is the excellent East Warren Community Market. Every Saturday during the summer you can pick up all of your wonderful local produce at the Waitsfield Farmer's market and Sweet Pea Natural Foods in Waitsfield will stock all of the healthy groceries you need. There are an abundance of great restaurants including The Pitcher Inn, Flatbread Pizza, The Common Man, Peasant and Mint. The Warren Store is a must for lunch!
