Description from owner

Beautiful home and view-filled property, private end of the road location yet 5 minutes to town and 15 minutes to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. Perfect for family vacations, wedding guests or a gathering of friends, sleeps 12-14. This gorgeous home features oak pegged timber frame architecture, cherry hardwood floors inlaid with ash and maple, and spectacular mountain and valley views. It is sited on a private 27 acre farm, with no other house in sight, in the heart of the Valley's pastoral farm country. The home is tastefully decorated and boasts a layout ideally suited for families traveling together: a private upper bedroom level featuring two luxurious master bedrooms with cathedral ceilings and a glass and tile bath; a living level with an open floor plan comprised of two sitting and entertainment areas, dining area that seats twelve, beautifully equipped chef's kitchen and marble-topped woodstove with ample wood supplies; and a bright lower family level with three bedrooms, mosaic-tiled spa bath, fully equipped mini-kitchen, and a common room full of games, videos, puzzles and books for rainy days. There are numerous amenities including a large mudroom, several flat screen TVs with DVD players and internet service, and an office with printer, fax, wireless high speed internet, and five-bar cell service (carrier-dependent). The beautiful property, located at the end of a private road, features a large deck with panoramic views, expansive lawns, stone walls, perennial gardens and flowering trees, an organic vegetable and herb garden, firepit, blackberry patches, an A++ sledding hill and a babbling brook. Also on the property is a fully-equipped equestrian facility with a run-in post and beam barn, several acres of grass fields, round pen/riding arena, and outdoor kennel. Well behaved dogs considered on a case by case basis, with additional deposit. Crib can be provided with advance notice. BONUS: A multi-level treehouse-deck designed by nation's top sustainable treehouse builders.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 2 Double Beds, 4 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed, 1 Crib

About the area

On 27 picturesque acres surrounded by farmland, woods and trails, this property offers the ultimate in privacy and yet is only minutes from skiing, Waitsfield and Warren villages and other Mad River Valley activities. The Mad River Valley is known as a "haven" for its "scenic rural landscape and peaceful way of life" (The New York Times). While its legendary skiing on three ski mountains and extensive network of VAST snowmobiling and cross country trails attracts winter sports enthusiasts, unlike many other ski resorts the Valley is surprisingly free of crowds and traffic. Its pristine countryside and progressive, sophisticated community makes it a wonderful destination year-round for everyone who after their first visit falls in love with its fresh air, natural beauty, and organic spirit. Summers offer arts festivals, farmers markets and a legendary 4th of July parade; kayaking, fishing and swimming in the beautiful Mad River; antiquing, shopping and dining on exquisite locally-grown fare as well as a myriad of activities from golfing to gliding.

“Holiday Week”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2012

What a great house. Sits up on the mountain with great views. We were a family of 6 and were very comfortable. House can sleep 12. Our kids had their own space downstairs and it worked out well. It was set up like a separate apartment. Mud room was a saving grace. Weather was warm, which made for lots of wet shoes. Ski conditions were not great, so we didn't get in each others way when we were all together. Fully equipped kitchen was very nice. Surrounding property was great for long hikes. Would recommend this house to larger families. Restaurants in area were very good. We all agreed we would stay there again if we go back to that area.

“Summer Family Reunion”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2009

We chose this property for our summer family reunion-4 adults and 8 children (ages 5-13). It was perfect in every respect. Absolutely gorgeous mountain views from the deck, living room, kitchen, both master bedrooms and bath, too. This large home is stylishly and comfortably designed with all the amenities. The decor is beautifully done, but we appreciated that the couches and chairs were comfortable, too. We loved the great room with kitchen, dining, living room and TV available all in one big room. We also liked having a private "kids zone" for the younger set. It was very homey, too, so we really enjoyed our time at the house. When not outside enjoying the 40 acres of woods, fields and streams, the kids played games and cards in the comfy lower level game room, and loved having their own kitchen for drinks and snacks, while the parents read or watched movies upstairs. A terrific well equipped kitchen to gather and socialize while cooking, eating and enjoying one another. I s

“spacious and peaceful”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2009

We picked this location because it's only a few miles from both Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, and were pleasantly surprised by the open layout, garage and awesome foyer to stash all our ski gear. The fireplace was well used as it was close to zero most of the weekend we were there, the resort had provided plenty of wood, kindling and newspaper. I was surprised at the good quality of the bedroom furnitur as well, and the bathroom appeared to be recently re-tiled. Every need was thought of, really. I do wish a hot tub was available, but we enjoyed the sauna after a chilly day of skiing.
