Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 max

Our 1865 farmhouse is nestled into the west slope of Pleasant Valley, with a commanding view of majestic Mt. Mansfield. In the midst of 180 very private acres of pristine woodlands and breathtaking mountain views, the bedrooms are cozy and the kitchen/dining and living rooms are open space, light and airy. With recent renovations, everything is clean, solid and functionally sound without sacrificing the country feel of an old Vermont farmhouse. Decorated in warm colors, each room has its own charm and character. The master bedroom is on the ground floor in its own “wing,” with two beds, a queen and a twin, and a private full bath. The other two bedrooms are upstairs and share a full bathroom – the one to the right has four twins; the one to the left has a queen and a twin. We have one child-size roll-away and one crib. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for cooking gourmet feasts. Our washer and dryer ensure that you are ready for anything, whether you brought enough clothes or not.

Underhill, Jeffersonville and the surrounding area offer an abundance of distractions for every taste. Outdoor enthusiasts will find adventure in exploring the network of trails right outside our door, whether for cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledding, toboganning, mountain biking, hiking or simply walking (we have some equipment, and you can rent snowshoes and bikes for the day or week at our local stores). Underhill’s got one of the best sledding hills anywhere, and that’s just a five minute drive. If you prefer to take walks on the woods trails or on beautiful country roads, you’ll be stunned by the beauty and majesty of the unspoiled land and Mt. Mansfield.

This treasure is a place to get away from the hustle, to fill your lungs with truly fresh air, and to “re-charge your batteries.” With our own pond right off the deck, swimming (summer) and skating (winter) are available on impulse. Our larder is loaded with teas, coffees, hot chocolate, and other cooking/eating essentials, which you are welcome to use, though we ask that they be replaced if usage is heavy. Our caretaker and housekeeper will be happy to pitch in if you’d like their help while at the house. When we say 'vacation house,' we mean it!

As for skiing, Smuggler’s Notch Ski Resort (known to locals as “Smuggs”, only 15-20 minutes away) offers groomed cross-country ski trails, a skating arena, and excellent downhill skiing and snow-boarding. Stowe is just 45 minutes away (or you can ski to it from Smuggs) and Jay Peak is about the same. If variety is a compulsion, Sugarbush and Mad River are about an hour south.

For those seeking more pastoral or cerebral activities, there is no lack of beautiful vistas for the photographer and artist; there are antique shops, art galleries, farmers markets, restaurants, theatres, and shops all within a 40 minute radius, including Stowe village, Jeffersonville and Vermont’s largest city, Burlington. And the turn of seasons in fall is utterly spectacular as Vermont’s legendary sugar maples put on their riotous display of leafy colors.

As the sun sets and the incredibly clear sky shows off a plethora of stars and constellations, you can come home to relax and toast your toes in front of the big stone fireplace, far from the noise and hectic pace of resort villages with their condos, dense living and commercial traffic. Put on soft music and stretch out, and rest your tired muscles in this serene and private setting!

Our home is the perfect place for your Vermont vacation. It is also the perfect setting for small family celebrations like anniversaries or graduations. Invite your family, friends and relatives to stay here with you. There are plenty of businesses in the area that would be happy to help you with catering and other services you might need. Contact us with any questions or concerns you have. We’ll be glad to help!

Charming is right!

  • 5 of 5

Not gonna lie...this place was awesome!! The whole process of renting this place was so easy. Mark was very responsive to our many questions! The information sheets of the area provided were a nice feature. It was clean and all ready for our stay. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace...so cozy! The bedrooms are very spacious with plenty of room and the bathrooms were fantastic--clean and updated! Great hiking trails with great views. Thank you, Mark...if we are ever visiting the area again, you will be our first choice!

A Spectacular Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

For our family of 6 converging for a winter getaway, Bryn Tyddyn had it all — a spectacular view of Mt. Mansfield from the dining room table, seclusion at the end of a town-maintained road, a short trail to a stunning view across the entire valley from Overlook Rock, a massive stone fireplace in the living room radiating warmth, a very generous supply of kitchen equipment and dishes, a large mudroom for storing winter gear, vast numbers of games and puzzles, excellent communication with the owner, and a clean and welcoming home, complete with handcrafted soaps in the bathrooms. We could not have asked for accommodations that epitomized more of what we wanted in a Vermont winter vacation property. We highly recommend this bit of paradise.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely place with a stunning view. The host is friendly and helpful. The palace has a nice vintage design with good taste. We had beautiful evenings around the table or next to the fireplace.

It was a magical white Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, this farmhouse was a dream to be able to rent over the Christmas period of 2017 and I do not say that lightly. The photographs of this house in the snow, are exactly what my family and I experienced and it was as magical as you can imagine. We simply could not have asked for more and we are hopefully planning a return trip for next Christmas.

The owner, Mark, was a pleasure to deal with.. While I did not meet Mark in person, he could not have been more helpful in accommodating us in gaining access/needs for our stay/tips on nearby facilities etc.

The house has everything you could need, was incredibly warm despite the negative temperatures outside and was very comfortably set up for several couples to enjoy the space. The fireplace, available stack of logs outside and the mountain view was just icing on the cake. Thank you Mark for the lovely stay. I'll be in touch for the next visit!
