Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Wilmington - Vermont Country Home

Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5 adults plus up to 4 kids)

Find a peaceful and private retreat 10 miles south of Wilmington at this beautiful post and beam home located high on a hill with a stunning, panoramic view of the surrounding Green Mountains of Vermont.

Come here to enjoy a genuine and rustic Vermont experience. Whether you are skiing Mount Snow, leaf peeping, exploring Brattleboro or writing or painting, we invite you to experience this special and unique setting.

This twenty-five acre property includes brooks, stone walls, woodlands, wildlife and open vistas. A wrap-around deck, screened porch and windows galore all allow you to enjoy the view. Seasonal furniture and a gas grill are provided on the deck. A wood-burning stove, which is inserted into a floor to ceiling brick chimney, will offer warmth and cheer.

Plenty of comfortable space to spread out and relax with your family. House sleeps five adults in the three bedrooms. Up to 4 children may be accommodated in the basement. Roll away bed and crib available. Master suite has a queen, 2nd bedroom a queen, and 3rd bedroom a twin.

Master suite is upstairs, off the loft, and includes a skylight over the queen size bed, a private balcony for star gazing, and a master bath with a large whirlpool tub and separate step-in shower.

Keep in touch, if need be, with fast WIFI, land line with unlimited domestic long distance, and fax machine. Unlike many remote retreats your cell phone will most likely have reception here on top of the hills. Satellite TV, free streaming Netflix video w/unlimited movies, and quality stereo system are all for your pleasure.

This is as close to perfect seclusion as you can find, and still be conveniently located. Accessible to Brattleboro, a cultural center; historic Bennington; the artists’ village of Shelburne Falls, MA and three miles from quaint Jacksonville, VT. Jacksonville is the home of the Jacksonville General Store where you will find local produce, a custom butcher shop, Vermont cheeses and a selection of wines. Lake Whitingham (Harriman Reservoir) which offers beautiful beaches, boating ( including canoeing and kayaking) is only five miles north of Jacksonville.

It all adds up to a perfect combination of peace and quiet and accessibility in a comfortable home in a spectacular setting. Bring your kids and your dog and have a family adventure, or make it your romantic hideaway, a secluded spot for artistic pursuits or a launching pad for your athletic interests. Welcome and enjoy!

Wonderful Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. The pictures of the home are accurate and you will find everything that you need to make your vacation comfortable. Love that you are able to bring your pet - our dog loved running the grounds and hiking through the woods! We had a truck, so no problem getting up the very steep hill! Would definitely come again for another get-away!

Perfect Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for the perfect get-away, off the beaten path, to spend a quiet weekend in the mountains. "Almost Heaven" worked out perfectly for us and our friends. A brisk walk up an adjoining county road; star gazing off the back deck at night that took your breath away; curled by the wood stove with a book was indeed relaxing. Fine food, antiques, winery are minutes away. We will definitely be back.

Sister's weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for our annual sister's weekend. The home is a perfect setting for any type of get away. There is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy together time or separate space for solitude. Regardless of what room you are in the views are spectacular. The home has all of the amenities you could ever need. Regardless of the season you can enjoy all this property has to offer. I would definitely return.

Outstanding home /Kids and Pets

We loved our log weekend stay, the kids had a blast the pups loved the space. The home was cozy and great for kicking back and relaxing. Great for families who want to re-connect and just hang out.

Owners were great!!

Perfect Vermont Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at this lovely property. We came up with the intention of skiing at Mt. Snow for the weekend and liked that this place was a little more out of the way as apposed to others that are closer to the mountain. Don't be fooled by Google Maps, the drive the mountain took us less than 30 minutes.

The house itself was great. When we arrived everything was as advertised in the listing and there were clear instructions on how to use everything. The Wi-fi and cable TV worked well and the wood stove was the best. On top of that, the property was gorgeous with one of the best views of the mountains in the area you can have. The post and beam home coupled with the numerous windows taking advantage of the propeties views are the best.

This home was comfortable, well stocked and made us feel at home for the weekend. We were even able to bring our dog with us, which made it that much better!
