About the property

Main House (4B/7B) and Guest House (3B/3B) sleeps up to 14, 130 acres, 3 ponds

The breathtaking Eastaway Estate sits on 130 acres near the picturesque town of Woodstock, Vermont, tucked away on a mountainside at the end of a private drive. An elegant main residence and guest house are perched at an elevation of 1,400 feet overlooking the Green Mountains, creating the ultimate country escape. The sophisticated contemporary residences take full advantage of the majestic surroundings with floor-to-ceiling windows, inviting indoor/outdoor terraces, and an extensive trail network that winds throughout the rolling, wooded property.

A luxurious sanctuary, Eastaway is a four-season getaway ideal for entertaining while enjoying the unique and varied offerings of this idyllic part of Vermont. The property is the perfect hideaway any time of the year for special celebrations or to simply relax and indulge in the magnificent natural surroundings (please note that we do not allow weddings or larger events over 20 people on the property). With dramatic foliage in the fall, snow white winters, breezy springs when the maple is flowing and warm summers, perfect for lounging by the pool, Eastaway has something for everyone.

East central Vermont is the heart of the Green Mountain State and features some of New England’s most beautiful countryside and true Northern hospitality. The resort areas of Killington, Sugarbush, and Stowe host outdoor enthusiasts all year, to ski and skate in the winter and cycle and canoe in the warmer months.

A haven for foodies, the area’s small farmers have created a locavore’s paradise, complemented by a dense collection of craft brewers and distilleries. The region’s rich tradition of artisans has also fostered a plethora of prestigious brands, whose authentic, hand-crafted ethos has established the area as a cradle of American design and lifestyle product innovation. Come for a visit and you may never want to leave!

Please note that we do not allow weddings or larger events on the property.

About Emily Ehl

I live with my wife and three children in Pacific Palisades, CA. I grew up in Hanover, NH which is about 20 minutes from Eastaway and attended Middlebury College in Vermont.

Emily Ehl purchased this estate in 2015

Why Emily Ehl chose Sharon

I purchased Eastaway in January 2015 as second home to be closer to my parents and siblings living on the East Coast. Already it has become a favorite destination for our family and friends. It is large enough to accommodate my rather large extended family and offers total seclusion and privacy for all to enjoy. Eastaway is unlike any property you will find on the rental market in Vermont.

Girls' Long weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property- between the main house and guest house, more room than you'll ever need. Beautifully decorated and landscaped, all amenities. You won't be disappointed! Leave enough time to explore the beautiful grounds too- hike to the top for 360 views of all of New England.

Only hope that we can return one day soon...

"Eastaway" May 2017

  • 5 of 5

“Eastaway”--an outstanding gem with a 360 degree view of VT mountain ranges!!! This is the property you long to discover and we did!!! A beautiful, spacious “estate” with a delightful guest house both with fully equipped kitchens, cozy sitting areas, plush beds, private baths, all types of indoor and outdoor entertainment surrounded by enchanting country views which radiate a comfortable elegance. If you think the photos are spectacular, the actual sight is truly magnificent!!!

One night during our May stay, we celebrated The Kentucky Derby. On a recommendation from Emily we hired a nearby caterer Meredith Jo Henning-Dyer (another perk of “Eastaway”), to prepare appetizers and our evening meal. Oh, let us not forget the two mouth-watering desserts. Delicious!!! We immediately felt Jo's passion for her trade and gained valuable culinary knowledge watching her while she strategically set up our starters and our dinner. Jo was accommodating and pleasant. That night we experienced a culinary feast in an “Eastaway” relaxing and posh dining room. How special!!!

It should be noted the kindnesses of Emily Ehl and Mary Lou Hathorn, the property managers bestowed on us were remarkable. They gave us a delightful, upbeat time that left our family of nine with many, many smiles and warm memories. Lucky, lucky us--- our thanks!!!

Spectacular Property, Very Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Drove up for NYC to stay here with my family of 10 over the Christmas holiday. It is a magnificent property with amazing views of the surrounding Vermont landscape. Between the main house and guest house there is plenty of room for a large family with room to breath. The owners personally welcomed us and were always available by phone and extremely helpful throughout the stay in explaining how everything worked - lights, hot tub, sauna, etc. We hope to come back soon!

Magnificent! Nature at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a majestic estate with all the comforts of home and more! We stayed during the NYE holiday and could not have picked a better home for our large family. I wish we had stayed longer. You will not feel homesick here! Thank you for sharing your home!
