Located just south of the Woodstock Country Club golf course / Nordic cross country ski center off of Route 106, Maplewoods is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath professionally decorated luxury home located just two miles from the Woodstock Village Green. Maplewoods sits on five acres of private forest on a gentle hillside, with miles of surrounding woods waiting to be explored. On the north side of the house, just off the flagstone patio and fire pit, a babbling brook runs in a series of beautiful waterfalls down the hillside, creating the perfect 'soundtrack' for your Vermont stay. Feel free to sit and watch and listen to the beautiful waterfalls, or, if you'd like to, just climb in and splash around yourself!
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO VIEW THE VIDEO OF THESE WATERFALLS! If you scroll down our listing, below 'Owner Info' and above the 'Photos' section at the bottom, you'll see 'Links to more information:' Click on the link below that heading and you'll see a video of our daughter playing and splashing in the waterfalls that run along the north side of the house.
On the west side of the house, the front lawn gently slopes down the hill and presents a beautiful view of the farm and hillsides on the other side of the valley. Maplewoods has two master bedroom suites with king sized memory foam/gel beds. The Maplewoods suite is an oversized master with a fireplace, sitting area, office/library, and en suite bathroom with a two person jetted tub. The River Suite (my favorite, when we sleep with the windows open) sits on the north side of the house, near the waterfalls running down the side of our hill. (That sound gives me the best sleep of my life!) Both master suites have large flat screen televisions with cable. Maplewoods has two additional large bedrooms upstairs. The Sweet Dreams room has a queen sized bed and the Victorian room has two twins with antique headboards.
Maplewoods has a large, modern, and well equipped chef's kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a built in wine chiller and a television to watch the morning news. We have stocked our kitchen with high end cookware, knives, etc, providing all the equipment and utensils you need to create your own gourmet meals with Vermont's natural bounty. An elegant eight person dining table provides the perfect setting for your feast in the dining room. For more casual meals, the kitchen's granite breakfast bar provides seating for those who want to chat with the cook while waiting for their pancakes and (of course!) Vermont maple syrup.
Off the back of the open breakfast bar sits a comfortable hearth / living room warmed by our wood burning fireplace. This room opens on to the spacious deck with comfortable patio dining for eight. The deck sits on the north side of the house, next to the babbling waterfalls running down the hill, providing an excellent setting for a relaxing outdoor meal. Also downstairs is a spacious family / entertainment room with a large flat screen television and plenty of comfy seating. We have another casual gaming / dining area centered around a gorgeous, hand scraped, rich hardwood table. This is a perfect location for sharing a bottle of wine, a rousing game of Clue, and a few hands of poker (or 'go fish.')
We have taken great care to create a supremely luxurious, professionally decorated, yet eminently comfortable setting for you to enjoy on your Vermont vacation. We invite you to stay in our vacation home and enjoy the peaceful woods, babbling waterfall, and glorious views that made us fall in love with Vermont ourselves.
We are a happily married couple with a 15 year old boy and 12 year old girl. Having lived in Texas for many years, we now consider Woodstock, Vermont our "heart home" (although we have to commute back to Texas for 30-something weeks a year to work!)
Kelli Guss purchased this house in 2013
We first visited Vermont in 2006. Within minutes of crossing the state line, we found ourselves stopping the car every 5 minutes to stop, get out, and gawk at the natural beauty and wonders! The first time we visited Woodstock, we felt like we were walking into a Norman Rockwell painting. After looking for the perfect vacation home for at least two years, we finally found Maplewoods. Peaceful and secluded, nestled into the side of Dunham Hill, Maplewoods sits alongside the babbling waterfall that runs down the side of the hill. Although nestled into many acres of beautiful woods just ripe for exploration, we love the fact that we are just south of the Woodstock Country Club golf course and only two miles from the historic Woodstock Village Green. We have worked VERY hard to create a supremely luxurious home that is just as livable as it is beautiful.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your property in Woodstock. It was the most amazing and well appointed home I have ever stayed in! It is honestly crazy how well this home is setup, you will want for nothing. My family will remember our first white Christmas not just for the snow but also because of your lovely home and the perfect setting it provided. Also, thank you Kelli for all your tips about Woodstock and the surrounding areas. The information was invaluable!
If your an Australian looking for the "perfect White Christmas", this is seriously it!!! Maplewoods and Woodstock will not disappoint!
We went for my husband and his twin brothers birthday celebration with our families and could not have been happier with the house. Not only were the accommodations perfect but so comfortable!! The decor in the house was amazing. It was decorated with a lot of seasonal decorations that made it seem like a home rather than a rental. the owner was super responsive to all my emails and continues to be in contact. I really couldn't recommend a better rental property. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! I will definitely be back!
This home was amazing! Large upscale bedrooms & bathrooms and plenty of living space with many different areas to enjoy within the home and outdoor porches. The firepit, babbling brook & hammock were wonderful for spending relaxing time with family & friends. It is the perfect location, just a short drive to downtown Woodstock. We didn't want to leave and are planning to return in the fall or winter.
We enjoyed staying there very much. However, there was no hot water in the master bathroom. We had to shower
in the other bathroom upstairs. Hot tub could not be used. Also, there was no battery in the smoke alarm, in the
master bedroom. We still enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you.
This home is just lovely. The owner has thought of virtually everything one could need. Great for cooking. It is immaculate. Our family of three generations all had privacy to do a variety of activities, including watching the Stanley Cup, studying for a final exam and celebrating a graduation, simultaneously! We felt welcomed by the little touches that greeted us upon our arrival.
Our first visit to Vermont was made all the more memorable by staying at Maplewoods, and our entire family of four, which includes a tween and teenager, had an amazing time!
The home itself is comfortably large, tastefully decorated, and well-furnished, while the surrounding property is beautiful and allows for privacy. We dined outside on the deck and used the fire pit during our stay, and the kids spent several hours exploring the woods, playing along the brook and enjoying the freedom of being outside of the city.
Every potential need was met, and it was great to stay in such a quaint town as Woodstock. The recommendations from Kelli for dining and shopping were spot-on! We had leisurely days of sightseeing and hiking, and then were able to return to Maplewoods and feel completely at home! The master suite is perfect, and the fireplace and gorgeous bathroom put it over the top. Our kids loved having their own bedrooms, and the living space downstairs allowed for evenings of board games and enjoying each other's company without being cramped. It truly felt like home away from home!
