Just inside the Farmhouse from the deck, the warmth from a crackling Soapstone Fireplace awaits you. The completely refurbished Farmhouse boasts 7 bedrooms (5 with queen mattress, 1 with two twin beds and 1 with one twin bed) and 3 bathrooms large enough to accomodate up to 16 people very comfortably. All bedrooms are completed with antique beds, top of the line Vera Wang mattresses and finished with carefully chosen quilts, crisp white linens, extra pillows, bureaus and reading lamps.
From the upstairs bedrooms, take a walk down the open wooden staircase and upon entering the 'great room' the eye is drawn to the beautiful large planked floors, and exposed hand-hewn ceiling beams. Decorated with elegant (but not too fussy) country furnishings, plenty of sturdy rocking chairs, and the 52' FLAT SCREEN cable TV, this room is the perfect place to catch up on your favorite sports or a good movie. For those who aren't TV lovers, two other living rooms are available for conversation, reading, or a game of chess.
The expansive and newly appointed Farmhouse kitchen is complete with double convection oven, oversized Subzero refrigerator, dishwasher, and beautiful custom built pickled maple cabinetry. The kitchen is open to a large dining area which boasts a farmhouse table large enough to accomodate up to 16 people overlooking the Farmhouse, it's rolling hills and Mount Mansfield! The dining area also provides a Farmhouse sideboard/hutch complete with flatware, place settings, napkins and table linens, wine glasses, mugs, and a few other items necessary for your simple, or formal, dining needs. Our Farmhouse is complete with all bed linens, towels, washer and dryer, and a few extras. You need only bring your clothes and other personal items!
Head outside for a wonderful day of hiking to the top of your own mountain, or sitting waterside of your own on-site wading area and waterfalls! Settle down with a picnic near the water, lounge in the hammock for a lazy day nap in the summer, or go sledding with your family followed by a hot cup of cocoa or your favorite brew!!
While our Farmhouse is quiet and private, consider snowmobiling, we are near the VAST snowmobile trails! Also, our farmhouse is well-suited for hunting groups, and many other outfitters are available for various outdoor activities, including dog-sledding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sleigh rides, and snowmobiling. The Farmhouse is located approximately 20 minutes from Smugglers Notch ski area, 25-30 minutes to Jay Peak Ski Resort, 1 hour from Montreal, and 1 hour from Burlington. Just ask and we'd be more than happy to help make your plans. If you prefer other activities, we recommend local winerys for wine tastings, small cafe's, delis and other eateries, Fall corn maze, many Antique shops, Vermont products, golf courses within 5 minutes, various local artisans, and Art gallery. Most recently a local artisan and family business is now offering fresh made goats milk cheese, and Goats Milk Soap. Stop in to see the goat cheese production process and enjoy a wonderful conversation with a great family!
