Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Halifax - 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!

Gorgeous and secluded

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 1 year old, our dog, and myself spent four wonderful nights relaxing at this gorgeous property.

It felt very secluded and totally private, yet it was 20 min to a grocery store - which is a plus if you have young kids.

My favorite part of the stay was taking a bubble bath in the giant tub at sunset.

Beautiful views. Comfy bed. Amazing property.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for three night in February. The master bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! The house had everything we needed including firewood. The towels were fluffy and the bathrooms were especially clean. The house does have a lot of "stuff" books, toys, jackets, hats, lamps, knick knacks... This is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your preferences. We had a great time and would stay there again.

Excellent Accommodations in Mt Snow Area!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay while on a weekend trip for snowboarding at Mt Snow. We also wanted somewhere we could bring our family dog, who is like a member of the family, along for the weekend. This was the perfect place! This house is warm and welcoming and the space is laid out so attractively. The aesthetics of the post-and-beam construction are a pleasure for the eye, and the design of the house allows for lots of privacy while still having a very open floor plan. The kitchen is equipped with everything one could need to prepare any type of meal. We came with two adults and two children, but the additional beds in the basement area would have allowed the house to easily accommodate four more people very comfortably. The house was very clean and well-maintained. The owner, Chris, was amazing! His communication was excellent both before and during our stay, and he was very kind in accommodating all of our needs. The house is about 30 minutes away from Mt Snow, but the drive is along a beautiful, scenic road and very enjoyable--totally worth it to have so much more space and privacy for the same amount one might pay for a tiny hotel room (that is not dog-friendly) right by the mountain. The house is also set out in the country on a network of rarely used roads, so one might go for a nice walk from the house. I give this house five stars and definitely hope to stay here again!

Beautiful house on a beautiful piece of property

  • 5 of 5

I have a special affection for this house - my boyfriend proposed to me in a grove of trees on the property!

My group and I were all very satisfied with our stay. The house itself is well kept and clean, and the main floor open concept is great for groups to be able to interact with each other. Getting up the road to the house can be a bit intimidating if you're not in an SUV or vehicle with AWD. We had a problem with the driveway not being plowed prior to arrival, but the owner was super quick to respond and the driveway was plowed within an hour of calling him. I was impressed with how quickly the house warmed up after we arrived, too. Overall it was a really lovely and relaxing stay.

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.
