Londonderry house description

The old family farmhouse is located at Viking Nordic Center. In the summer a 3 acre wildflower meadow with a large raised deck offers a great view of the Green Mountains. The house is immediately surrounded by landscaped grounds which include a small pond. A large deck overlooks the field and the mountains, beyond which the nordic trail system rolls through densely wooded Vermont countryside. The house features a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, and an L-shaped living area with a fireplace and French doors opening onto a field stone patio and the backyard. Two of the bedrooms have private bath and a third bathroom is in the upstairs hall.

In the winter you have access to the Nordic center's 35Km of groomed cross country ski and snowshoe trails. Renter's receive complimentary trail passes.

Please note the check in / check out day on this property is Friday so that visitors can take advantage of the many weekend activities in the area.

                          Car: Necessary

                          The house is 1 mile from Londonderry shopping, 20 minutes from Manchester, and 6 miles from Weston. Also 20 minutes from Stratton and Okemo ski areas, 10 minutes from Bromley Mountain and the summer Fun Zone, and 5 minutes from Magic Mtn. The 70 acre property includes 12 km of private trails for summer and fall use and ski passes for each house guest for the 35 km cross country ski trail system during the winter.

                          In the summer and fall, guests can fill their days without ever leaving the house's grounds -- playing in the large yard, walking the ski trails, flying kites in the meadow, or watching the sun set over the Green Mountains from the raised deck in the meadow. And of course, walking, running, or biking over the private trail network. The Appalachian Trail and Long Trail are nearby, Lowell Lake State Park is 1/2 mile away for canoeing, and there many great options for kayaking and fishing. Miles of Vermont back roads are great for long bike rides, runs, or drives.

                          Other Activities: Cross country skiing & snowshoeing
