What you will love about this home
Our country home is a warm inviting sanctuary. On our wonderfully private on 12 acres, birds flock to the feeders on the deck and the blooms in our flower and food gardens. A small outdoor hot tub offers views of mountains, woods, and stars. Our sun room, which is attached to a cozy living room and well-equipped kitchen, has a handmade dining table, sitting area (including sofa bed), and stunning views of Camel's Hump mountain: Vermont's second highest peak and a great place for hiking or skiing. Our enclosed 3-season front porch offers another space for sitting and sleeping. Three bedrooms and a half bathroom are on the second floor. One has a queen size bed, one has a double, and the small room has bunk beds.
The house is well-equipped for babies or toddlers. You are welcome to use our grandchildren's portable crib, books, toys, and outdoor "zip line." One of our neighbors is fluent in Italian and French and would be able to help you out if needed.
What you will love about this neighborhood
The Long Trail, a hiking path that runs from Massachusetts to Quebec is a short walk from the house. One of Vermont's lovely rivers flows by at the bottom of our dirt road. Our small town (6 kilometres) has 3 nice restaurants, a bakery/cafe, and food market. Just 20 minutes drive is Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory, which offers hourly tours. Burlington (25 minutes by car) is often voted one of the 10 most livable cities in the U.S. It has a first class university and many great restaurants, outdoor concerts, shopping, art, and music venues. It sits on the shores of the largest lake in New England, across from New York State's Adirondack mountains. The waterfront is a site for many types of summer festivals. We are also 20 to 30 minutes from several ski areas including Stowe, 2 hrs. from Montreal, and 3.5 hrs. from Boston by car.
We have tremendous mountain views!
Open design with loads of light.
Hiking and more right from door, yet near city with great food, arts, and progressive thinkers.
