About the property

Easy Access to Mt. Snow Skiing, Brattleboro, and Wilmington! 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 skiing Mt. Snow, exploring Brattleboro, antiquing Wilmington, 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 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. Up to 4 children may also be accommodated in the basement which has additional beds. Roll away bed and crib available.

Master suite is upstairs, off the loft, and includes a stargazing skylight window over the queen size bed, 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.

Children and dogs (no cats please) welcome for a family adventure ... or make it a romantic getaway or secluded spot for your artistic and athletic pursuits.

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

Great getaway location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful grounds, lots of space and very well maintained. Loved sitting on the porches and balcony. Highly recommended if you want someplace quiet and laid-back. House very well equipped with kitchen ware, towels and bedding. Very peaceful. We felt completely at home. Thanks for a great stay!

Beautiful home with everything we could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with nice large open property with great views and wide open sky for stargazing (we saw 2 shooting stars without even trying!). Plenty of outdoor places to sit outside including Master bedroom deck, huge back deck and a nice side deck too. Everything was provided including cooking condiments and spices, towels and bedding which made things very easy. We grilled on the outdoor gas grill which was all set ready to go. It was too warm for a fire but there's a nice wood stove and plenty of wood for colder weather. Owner graciously let us check out later which was very much appreciated!

Inside, the post and beam style makes for a very attractive and enjoyable space to hang out and relax. I would definitely stay again next time I'm in southern VT.

Great way to unplug!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend time with the family! Nice open concept with beautiful post and beam structure. The property is as advertised, plenty of room, and Chris was a pleasure to work with=) Again, this is a great place to get away and unplug. Wildlife is abundant here, and it's peacefully quiet. The yard is cleared around the house, so it has that wide open, rolling, feeling. Sitting on the deck is a wonderful way to unwind or start your morning. It rained on and off over Memorial Day weekend, so we made puzzles in the loft, watched movies, and had lively card games at the table. It's been a long time since we've had so much down time together...we can't wait to do it again!!! Thank you, Chris for sharing your home with us=)

Comfortable country home.

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable country home with a lot of land. Perfect for a family to spread out. Peaceful setting, away from it all but with a good wifi connection. Comfortable beds. Loved the tub with a view upstairs. We loved that linens/towels were included, and the kitchen was well appointed with everything needed for food prep. We enjoyed wandering the property and exploring nearby towns.
