Spacious Restored 1900 Schoolhouse with Sweeping V
The kitchen opens directly into the dining room, which has a rustic pine farmer's table that sits 8 comfortably, along with a handmade sideboard and an antique chest. Just beyond the dining room area is a charming living room with a new plasma TV and DVD player. Furnishings include one-of-a-kind antiques and contemporary pieces by some of the finest Vermont artisans. There is also a full bathroom with a large, tiled walk in shower.
The second floor has three bedrooms, two with skylights facing the Mount Mansfield range to the west. In the central hallway, there is a day bed with trundle; nearby a small loft providing a magical hideaway for children. There is also a study with a large work desk, wireless internet, and bookshelves. The master bedroom, with its own private balcony, is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or meditation. It also has a separate seating area, a hand-crafted armoire, and small gas stove to provide plenty of warmth on cold days. There is also a second full bathroom with a fine old claw-foot bathtub, as well as a separate laundry/linen room with a new washer and dryer.
In Winter, you can ski(cross-country and downhill), snowboard, snowshoe, or stay indoors to read, write and cozy up with a cup of hot chocolate; in Spring and Summer, you can swim, hike, bike, fish, then come home and enjoy a barbeque on the front deck; in Fall, you can explore the foliage, farmer's markets and the fine food at local restaurants in nearby towns. In short, the schoolhouse offers a glorious retreat from hectic city life.
The property is located on 4.5 acres in Wolcott with superb 360 degree views of farmlands, woodlands, meadows, and the Mount Mansfield range nearby. Wolcott (and the surrounding environs), has become a model for sustainable living, with its state-of-the-art organic farms, artisanal food products, and farmers' markets. The schoolhouse is less than an hour's drive of four superb skiing locations: Stowe, Burke, Smuggler's Notch, and Jay Peak. Stowe is the closest, and is definitely worth paying a visit.
Come to the schoolhouse once, and you will assuredly want to return.

Cozy and comfortable
February 26, 2015
We loved staying for a long weekend at the schoolhouse. It was a winter wonderland and very close to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. The home has every amenity imaginable and is decorated very tastefully and makes for an extremely comfortable, cozy getaway. The owner was wonderful to work with to get the dates we needed for staying and was a pleasure. You are sure to enjoy your stay!
Fabulous Vermont vacation

The immaculately renovated and tastefully furnished old Schoolhouse has 180 degree views over mountains and Vermont countryside, including a classic red barn down the road. We loved the gourmet kitchen and the spacious, warm and bright living area. When it snowed our dream of a white Christmas came true - picture perfect. And it's near to Stowe. We had a truly delightful week here and highly recommend it.

We were so pleased with the Schoolhouse- much more than we expected. My husband was in Heaven with the kitchen with it's highend appliances and equipment. Centrally located for everything we wanted to see. Gorgeous country location-very,very clean. Information provided before our occupancy was very helpful. Very well supplied with linens, paper products, etc.Would highly recommend it. Five stars!
Seems like we're always rushing around with no time to stop and reflect. But we did manage to relax at your wonderful property. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the house is so well-equipped, we hed everything we needed. I compliment you on your remodel design. The house is so full of light, with such great scenery, it really is a special place. The roomy downstairs shower is also a real treat. Russel was very helpful when we arrived and whenever we had a question (just once I think). Thanks so much for sharing your schoolhouse with us. I want to move there!
We had a great week and truly enjoyed the schoolhouse.
Great home, especially for a small group like mine. Perfect for a small/young family or a couple. Absolutely gorgeous home with lots of character.
We wanted to thank you so much for enabling a wonderful family gathering! The house was beautiful and has a great feeling to it that we'll all remember until the next visit.
I just wanted to write and let you know what a splendid time our little group had at the Schoolhouse last weekend, and how much we appreciate your good taste and hospitality. I've rented a lot of homes, but never have found them so generously stocked and welcoming. And I hope it won't upset you that our friends and we covet everything in the house. Because I recognized the provenance of many of your beautiful belongings, I am curious: did you actually *go* to all those places (e.g. Poland, India, etc.)? And - last but hardly least - where did you get the glorious photo of the chicken that hangs over the living room sofa? I think - of everything in your house - that's my single favorite item.
"We had a WONDERFUL time at the schoolhouse. It is a jewel! Your photos, which told me a lot, did not even do it justice. What a lovely, well-appointed, well managed, well planned, well loved place. It was immaculate, too, which always pleases me. Thank you so much for sharing your place!" Phoebe
It was a joy to stay at the Schoolhouse. From the moment we walked through the front door until the moment we left, we felt we had been transported to another world! While we walked through the house, the children found the loft space to play in. Light poured through every window; the views were glorious. There was always something to do, and 'doing nothing' was also a pleasure. I'd heartily recommend the Schoolhouse to everyone wanting a real get-away.
