Well appointed, 3-level condo blends the new with an old-world, eclectic mix of furnishings from our travels and postings around the world. Each room is fitted with a small touch of Asia, the Middle East or Europe. All this with an unobstructed mountain view make for a very pleasant holiday venue.
Vermont summers are not known for excessively long spells of scorching heat so we've furnished the cooler lower level with FANS; The upper living area is equipped with an AC wall unit.
On the lowest level, the large master bedroom (king bed) is spacious and has a wall mounted TV and en suite bathroom. A balcony runs the length of the room making a nice quiet place to take your morning coffee.
The guest room (queen) on the same floor is small, and sufficient.There is a second full bath in the hall just outside this room.
The upstairs area, and air conditioned part of the condo, is semi-open with kitchen, den/TV room and dining/living room and powder room with toilet, sink, washer and dryer. There is a second deck with a gas grill running the length of the dining/living rooms - a wonderful place to catch the great mountain views while dining out of doors.
The loft space has 2 single beds - best for overflow guests. And can be VERY hot some summer days - only fans for relief. We've given this space above the living area an open feeling with glass wall panels.
Our condo may not be perfect for older people or for toddlers and children just learning to walk, as there are two 8-step stairs to get from the lowest level to the main floor and narrow stairs (see photo) to the loft.
RECREATION ON PROPERTY
There is a lovely pool, dressing rooms and recreation center with a small kitchen and outdoor (charcoal) grill. The pool opens weather depending; usually beginning to mid-June, closes late September. There are 3 tennis courts on property. Pool regulations are 4 people maximum from the same unit at one time at the pool. IF YOU HAVE A DOG, BE AWARE THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE POOL AREA. Kids enjoy the pool and they can be noisy - they're having fun - please be understanding.
