A Quiet Spot for a Vacation.
This comfortable rustic three bedroom house is located at 1700 feet, high in the foothills of Stratton Mountain.
A beautiful pond is but a couple of steps away from the house. Located on a dead-end dirt road, it is both quiet and convenient.
The House is 1.5 miles from the Stratton Base lodge, a ski area in the winter. Tennis, golf, horseback riding and concerts held in their outdoor shell are summertime features.

Warm and friendly, the house is comfortably furnished for easy housekeeping including, bedding, dishes, cutlery and utensils. Everything is provided except sheets, pillowcases and towels. The newly renovated eat-in kitchen is electric with a dishwasher, electric range, microwave, full size refrigerator, coffee grinder and coffee maker. A deep well gives pure water. Hand-hewn beams, pine-paneled walls and a brick fireplace with a warm and cozy propane fireplace are living room features.

A Private Pond
The three quarter acre pond offers refreshing swimming and trout fishing. It is both brook and spring fed. A rowboat is provided for fun. The grassy banks of the pond provide safe and easy entry into the water and are a great place to enjoy the sun on a hot day. A lovely screened gazebo graces the far shore. Beyond the pond is a brook.
Lots to Do Nearby.
It is a pleasant hike on the Long Trail which runs through Stratton Mountain or to a waterfall at Pikes Falls and to a wilderness lake. Pikes Falls is a beautiful rocky place for diving, sun bathing or hiking as well as a cool dip. The water is very cold even in the late August.
Within a few miles are good eating places, country auctions, fairs, antiques and within a half an hour's drive, concerts and summer theater. Weston and Dorset, Vermont have first rate Summer Stock Theater.
