Overview

About the property

Easy Access to Wilmington and Brattleboro. Instant Booking!

Discover a peaceful and private 25 acre retreat just 10 miles southeast of Wilmington and 11 miles southwest of Brattleboro! This beautiful post and beam home is located high in the hills with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding Green Mountains.

Come here to enjoy a genuine and rustic Vermont experience. Whether you are exploring Brattleboro, antiquing Wilmington, boating Lake Whitingham, fishing, writing or painting ... we invite you to experience this special and unique setting.

This twenty-five acre property includes stone walls, woodlands, wildlife and open vistas. A great place for children. Dogs love exploring (we regret due to our family member allergies we are not able to invite cats).

A huge deck, screened porch and windows galore allow you to relax and enjoy the views. 180 degree deck is comfortably furnished and Gas BBQ and supplies all provided.

A wood-burning stove, within floor to ceiling brick fireplace, offers warmth and cheer by a glowing fire. Free, unlimited split and stacked wood provided!

Plenty of comfortable space to spread out and relax with your family and friends. House sleeps five adults in the three bedrooms. Master suite has a queen, 2nd bedroom a queen, and 3rd bedroom a twin. In addition, up to 4 children may also be accommodated in the basement which has additional beds. Roll away bed and crib available upon request.

Master suite is upstairs, off the loft, and includes a stargazing skylight window over the suite, a private balcony with beautiful views, and attached master bath with large jacuzzi hot tub and separate step-in shower.

Keep in touch, if need be, with WIFI and land line. Your cell phone will most likely have good reception here on top of the hills (unlike many rentals in the area). Direct TV, Netflix, DVR, and high quality stereo system provided.

This is as close to perfect seclusion as you can find, and still be conveniently located. Easily accessible to great skiing, Wilmington, Brattleboro, and Bennington. Quaint and historic Jacksonville VT is just 3 miles away and home of the famous Jacksonville General Store where you will find local produce, custom butcher shop, Vermont maple syrup, Vermont cheeses and an impressive array of local wines.

It all adds up to a perfect combination of peace and quiet, accessibility, and convenience!

Great, secluded property with a view

  • 4 of 5

The owner recommended 4wd to make it up the access road to the house, and they weren't kidding. It's a long, dirt hill and we needed to shuttle a couple of our friends up to the house since they didn't have 4wd or snow tires (we got some April snow during our visit).

The house itself is very nice. The decor is ancient, but gives the house some character. The view from the porch is very nice, the heat worked great, plenty of comfortable sleeping space. Overall, no complaints! I would recommend it as long as you have 4wd. Also, I don't think any of us had cell reception near the house.

Owner's Response: A few clarifications: We do recommend 4WD or AWD vehicles as needed in case of ice or mud. This is seasonal and we can provide conditions case by case. Cell phone use depends upon your carrier. For example, Verizon has a strong signal and is fine, but Boost mobile does not have a signal available. We do provide a land-line phone with unlimited service in the continental United Sates. Additionally, we would clarify and confirm that our WIFI signal from V-Tel is strong and uninterrupted.

Felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

Quick and friendly communication from the Owner, clean, authentic home with acres of privacy. The property was already plowed and shoveled for our arrival at the tail end of a nor'easter. We loved the house so much we started looking at plans to build our own. Short drive through the quaint villiages to the ski slopes. We hope to stay here on our next trip to Vermont.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We did something not many people do. We went to New England in January, on purpose. This house was amazing with it's view. We got there after a big snow storm, so it was perfect. The house is large and has a very welcoming ambiance. We lived the seclusion. We hope to go back in the fall, where the view will be that much more incredible. Chris was very welcoming and I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there. You can't go wrong staying here.
