Outstanding 6 BR Home On 8 Lovely Acres, Just 5 Min. From Manchester Center
This lovely 6 bedroom home which sleeps 12 people is a perfect place for a family vacation. The great room, connected to the kitchen and dining room is the favorite place for family activity while enjoying the fire and views of the mountains. The second living room provides a more tranquil place to relax in case you chose to be away from the hub-bub of the great room. The Farm table in the dining room seats 12 people for outstanding family dinners. The porch is fantastic summer, fall and winter. Sitting on the porch in the summer enjoying the view of the pasture, horses and mountains is equally wonderful as enjoying the views during the winter from the hottub. The playroom is a terrific place to let the kids watch a movie, if the adults want some quiet time in the great room. Walking/hiking trails are just steps from our front door. Skiing is 10 miles from our home.

Cozy charming yet Spacious, Vermont paradise!
Absolutely breathtaking and beautifully decorated. Stayed for a few days in preparation for a larger reunion in which the house will be perfect for our extended family of 12 for an exciting autumn extended weekend. We may even be back to book February ski week! So close to Stratton and Bromley. Owner was tremendous and efficient!
Thank you! We enjoyed having you! Come back soon :)
Absolutely Fabulous, Quintessential Vermont Home
We stayed at this amazing home for a family reunion ski weekend. The house - more like estate - is enormous, yet cozy and has SO MUCH CHARM. It really is a quintessential Vermont farm house with all the necessary modern amenities. It has everything you need to have a great weekend with a large group - large dining room table, BEAUTIFUL and functional kitchen, wonderful living room with large fireplace and an AWESOME hot tube right on the deck off the living room. And it has so many extras - multiple washing machines, surround sound, play room for kids, gorgeous master suite, dog friendly for a nominal fee -- everything! The location is also great - right near Manchester center and the Equinox - where we had drinks around the fire pit. We skied at Stratton and this is house is definitely worth the extra drive - took us about 25-30 mins. It is also close to cross-country skiing - which we did on the second day. And the best part - Beth and the care takers are a pleasure to deal with. Can't say enough good things about this property. Stay here if you can! Thanks for sharing your home!
What A House! Roomy But Oh So Cozy.
I came to Vermont on a spur of the moment getaway with my girlfriend and man were we impressed with this gorgeous, spacious house. Even before arriving we were blown away by just how beautiful Vermont is. As we explored the seemingly endless home, we couldn't help but immediately feel comfortable, like we belonged in the space. It is very easy to settle into such a warm inviting home- especially once you slip into the hot tub! Although we kicked our feet back and relaxed at the house for the majority of our stay, on our ways in and out, we passed through plenty of shopping for those with vacation dollars weighing down their pockets. There were only two of us in the house but it could easily house 12 or more people, making it ideal for nearly any kind of gathering or celebration. Overall we had a blast enjoying the mountain air and relaxing in absolute comfort!
Perfect for families in every way!! Wow!
We had the best time in this quintessential Vermont house! With 2 families and plenty of kids - we had lots of space to spread out playing games in the family room in front of roaring Fire, toys and movie watching in the kid friendly "playroom", great converstions and laughs around the giant dining table eating a meal that was prepared in the spacious kitchen and then tons of private bedrooms with several beds in each for retiring after an incredible day! Each kid had their own bed including 2 babies in their own 2 cribs!!
We skied all day, took long county morning walks (to check out nearby chickens and horses that live next door) we shopped until we dropped at the local factory outlets (5 minutes away) including Ralph Lauren, banana republic, gap, brooks brothers an so many more and enjoyed a fun night out at a local restaurant.
We can't wait to go back next year!!!!
This Is The One - Quintessential VT!
This was our first time to visit Vermont, and we could not have chosen a better house to be our 'home away from home.' 3 families celebrated New Years and the house provided more than ample room for us to each have our own family area and not feel cramped at all. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook large breakfasts and even New Year's dinner. We loved the open kitchen and den with the fireplace. It was a great way for all of the kids to play games and spend time together by the fire. There were even 2 washers and 2 dryers to handle all of our snow clothes. This house is very convenient to town and we had a great time sledding, shopping and lunching at the Equinox Hotel. Skiing on Bromley Mountain was great and the fireworks on Stratton Mountain New Year's Eve was a special treat. I cannot say enough great things about this house or our time in Vermont - we hope to visit again soon!
Our home in Manchester is located on a tranquil eight acres over looking thousands of acres of mountains, yet it is a 5 minute drive to town where you will find outlet shopping, excellent dining, antiquing. Just 5 more minutes down the road you will find some of the best skiing Vermont has to offer. In the winter we are just minutes from skiing. We are 11 miles from Bromley Mountain and 16 miles from Stratton Mountain. There is also snow shoeing and cross country skiing 3 miles from our home at the Equinox Golf Course. There is also a local snowmobiling company and an ice skating rink, if you are up for more winter adventures! The fall in Vermont is epic! The fall foliage colors are breath-taking on the mountains surrounding our home. The fly-fishing is outstanding on the Battenkill River especially with the Orvis Flagship Store & Fly-Fishing lessons located just 3 miles from the house. Vermont is also famous for our mountain biking and antiquing. The summers in Vermont are magical! There are walking and hiking trails just out the front door. The famous Equinox Resort is just 3 miles from the house, boasting an outstanding golf course and a top of the line spa. Dorset, just 4 miles away, has wonderful summer theater. There is a local quarry for swimming and a glorious new swimming pool in town. For more entertainment, there is an alpine slide, mini golf, climbing walls, trampolines and other adventure games located just 10 minutes away at Bromley Mountain. Manchester is an amazing place to vacation summer, fall and winter!
