Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Plymouth - Plymouth retreat

House, 2 Bedrooms+Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6), WIFI

Location: Between Killington and Okemo, Vermont, USA. (Boston 3 hours, NYC 5 hours, Woodstock 25 mins, Farm & Wilderness camps closeby). Superfast fiber optic internet.

Accomodations: Contemporary Home, 2 Beds, 3 Baths Den/Office, Sleeps 6

A light filled mountain retreat overlooking pond on 22 acres. Very comfortable for 2 couples or a family, can accommodate more. Located in historic Plymouth, birthplace and resting place of President Calvin Coolidge.

Enjoy skiing/sledding in Winter, listening to peepers in Spring, hiking in Summer, beautiful colors in Fall. Gather round the fire pit at night and watch the stars come out or stay in by the fireplace: your choice.

In Winter Plymouth is a great ski location - minutes from Okemo and Killington. It's 3.5 hour drive from CT, 3 hours from Boston making it perfect for a weekend skiing. You can choose to ski at Killington, the Beast of the East, or the more family friendly Okemo resort. It's a 20 minute drive to Killington Skyeship or Okemo Jackson Gore. Snowmobiling and VAST trails are on the doorstep. The house sits on a great hill for tobogganing.

We love listening to the peepers in the spring. In summer it is a great escape with the charming town of Woodstock just 25 minutes away and 10 minutes to Farm & Wilderness.

In Summer hunt for berries on the property: blackberry, wild strawberry and mountain blueberry. Explore Plymouth and get a glimpse of Vermont as it used to be in Coolidge's time. Pan for gold down the hill at Plymouth Five Corners, once the site of a thriving town during the gold rush but now taken back by nature.

Great food and restaurants are close at hand: local organic produce most of the year, artisanal cheeses, local beers...even local wine.

The house is well maintained, with quality furniture, superfast WIFI, and a spectacular open plan living/kitchen/dining area on the second floor. There is a central wood burning fireplace and lots of windows with views over the mountains and into the woods. Glass doors lead onto the deck and an outdoor barbecue. The deck is a seating/dining area in the summer months. On the same level there is a separate second lounge/ den/ office area with large windows and views and an adjacent shower room. This room has a queen sofa bed that converts to queen bed and two of the living room sofas convert to single beds.

The two bedrooms are on the first floor. The master bedroom with queen bed has a bathroom en suite. The second bedroom with queen bed has a bathroom a few feet down the hall. The laundry room is on this level.

The attached garage is a real plus in Winter. No clearing snow off the car in the morning, drive straight in walk into the house in the evening. NB YOU NEED 4 WHEEL DRIVE TO ACCESS THE PROPERTY IN THE WINTER. The driveway and the road to the house are steep. The road and driveway are plowed but especially during a storm you will need 4 wheel drive.

The house is supplied with organic linens for the beds and bathroom, paper products, cleaning supplies, and toiletries.

A mile off the beaten track and set in 22 acres of yard and forest this modern contemporary home allows comfortable, easy living for a family or group in a light filled space. We don’t allow pets in this house.

It's 3.5 hour drive from CT making it perfect for a weekend skiing. You can choose to ski at Killington, the Beast of the East, or the more family friendly Okemo resort. In summer it is a great escape with the charming town of Woodstock just 25 minutes away. It's a 20 minute drive to Killington Skyeship or Okemo Jackson Gore and 10 minutes to Farm & Wilderness. There is unlimited hiking, biking and VAST trails on the doorstep. The house sits on a great hill for tobogganing, We love listening to the peepers in the spring.

ALWAYS AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd Thanksgiving that my family has spent at Jill's amazing house. Jill does an amazing job at making your getaway perfect. From cleanliness to comfort this house does it all. The locations is nestled nicely in the mountains and very private. Jill keeps this house in great condition and we'll stocked with toiletries, kitchen necessities and the technology to keep us connected. We have never had any issues when we have stayed here. Jill lives not to far and if any issues would arise she is only a phone call away to resolve. We WILL be back next year to do it all over again as there is no way we would even consider staying anywhere else! Thanks Jill

Lovely House in Gorgeous Surrounding

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 12 days in the house and had a wonderful time. The house was super clean and very comfortable. Bed was actually as comfortable as ours at home, and that rarely happens. The home has all the features that are listed and other than food more than enough of everything is provided (i've rented homes where you run out of toilet paper after 2 days so i appreciated this). The surroundings are gorgeous and we went on many lovely hikes. Jill was great to work with, very flexible and accommodating. do NOT rent this house if you have children as part of what makes it nice is that almost everything is white - but since we are adults we were fine with that. Would happily rent again. Thanks jill!!

A fantastic, private and beautiful mountain retreat close by Okemo and Killington

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this a beautiful home nestled on a winding mountain road with stunning mountain views on all sides, but the owner has taken great care to deliver a B&B level experience, with games, bath salts, and other homey touches throughout. The house is well designed for a family, providing plenty of room for privacy and bathrooms with showers (3). But the setting is what I'd most highly recommend. Large windows on all sides look out on fields, small pond, and mountain vistas. No window covering necessary. We came to ski, but truly hated leaving the house each morning. We'll be back!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to the Plymouth house for a weekend ski trip did not disappoint. Same as our prior visit, the house was immaculately clean, and the holiday wreaths and garland were a lovely touch. We skied by day at Killington about 20 minutes away, and enjoyed cozy nights by the fire place. The plymouth house is a perfect getaway nestled in the mountains of Vermont and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jill is wonderful to work with and I would definitely recommend the house without hesitation!

Wonderful weekend in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this wonderful house in the hills for a weekend’s skiing, and once again were really impressed by the cleanliness of the house and attention to detail shown by the owners. The small written instructions around the house cater for every eventuality, including how to light the log fire. There were holiday lights, garlands and wreaths scattered around and we felt really cozy as we sat watching Holiday Inn on the big TV screen.

We tried a local restaurant (The Worthy Inn) in Woodstock, as recommended, and the food and beers were excellent. Well worth a visit, and Woodstock town looked beautiful in the snow.

Once again, we were lucky to have fantastic skiing conditions – two feet of powder snow twenty minutes away at Killington - and it was a pleasure to come back to such a warm and inviting home at the end of each day, thank you.
