The house is heated with propane, the fuel of choice in Vermont. There is also a 22" Weber Kettle Grill for outdoor cooking in the warmer months.
Pond is three quarters of an acre in size, has a gravel base and is nine feet deep in the middle. In the summer, it is a great place to cool off or just enjoy the day. In winter, it is great for ice skating, an alternative activity.
There are many things to do in the area, from hiking along the Long Trail, to visiting Pikes Falls, taking in summer theatre, or biking or walking along the many small roads in the area. Town fairs and other local events are a pleasure to attend.
For those who want to go horse back riding or take in a round of golf in the warmer months or go skiing in the winter, the Stratton Resort is only 1.5 miles away, which means that you are only seven minutes from the base lodge. Directions: go down to the bottom of the lane, take a right, 500 feet later, take another right up Brazier's Way, the back end of the Stratton ski area access road, and five minutes later you are at the ski area. You can easily come home for lunch or run your kids up to the ski area in the morning and then come back home to do other activities such as snow shoeing or cross country skiing on the surrounding land or just sit back inside and enjoy the solitude away from the resort.
Pets & children are welcome.
