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. Dogs from the city love to explore!

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.

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!

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.

Lovely area but house needs some cleaning

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately there was a very annoying fly problem. The owners have indoor insect traps on some of the windows but either they don't work or they need to be fixed, there were dozens of flys, not what you expect in February. The owners allowed us to checkout late which was very nice, however they only refunded 50% of the security deposit, this may have been due to the fact that we could not communicate with them while we were at the house because the Wifi was almost nonexistent. The basement sleeping quarters are not a place I would have my children sleep, very dank. My teenage children went down once and refused to go down again. In the master suite I needed to open the windows after taking a bath, it was over 65 degrees outside and very warm in the room. The windows have begun rotting, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to close them, but I did manage. The Kitchen utensils were not clean, I took many a fork out and had to wash off old bits of dry food. We made the best of it. The road is beautiful to walk even in mud season.

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.
