                  Poultney is a quaint and historic Vermont town and a little known jewel. An unspoiled and rural farming community, it is truly a snapshot of what Vermont used to be. Only ten minutes to Lake St. Catherine and Lake Bomoseen, which have a public boat ramp and state park, it is also home to Green Mountain and Castleton State Colleges, which host a number of cultural and agricultural events.

                  Other Activities: snow mobiles, rodeos at Pond Hill Ranch

                  Golf: Lake St. Catherine Golf Club - Poultney, VT


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1985

                  About the owner: Our family of 4 loves the outdoors, hunting, fishing, snowboarding or hiking. We purchased the 100 acres in Poultney in 1980 and the house was added to the land in 1985. We fenced in 15 acres in 1990 to accommodate our horses. The horses are gone now but we sometimes lend the field to friends and you may see horses there from time to time. Our two children and friends grew up sledding, hiking, camping, swimming in Lake St Catherine and the nearby Poultney River. The VAST trails cross our property and neighbors lent us their snow mobiles to explore all the wonderful trails our area has to offer. Once the children got older snowboarding became their main interest and we purchase a condo nearer to the mountains but wanted to keep our house in Poultney. By renting the house a few weeks a year, we can pay the taxes and some expenses and have the house and land to enjoy a few times a year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Poultney:
                  Bring your boat, fishing pole, golf clubs and hiking boots. Our property is ideal for anyone who loves to hike (spring, summer, and fall), fish in Lake St. Catherine and golf at the Lake St Catherine Golf Club or just get away from it all. We loved it for the open land and as a place our dogs can run free hiking with us. The lake is not crowded and it was a great place to teach the children to water ski and wake board

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Poultney is not a tourist area, the town with Green Mountain College as its center is a true Vermont small town. We have locally owned diners, hardware store, and pub and country store. The streets have little traffic; you can always find a place to park downtown. If you need some excitement, take a drive to Manchester Vermont, about 45 minutes from the house. There you will find many restaurants, outlet store, Lincoln’s family home, upscale shops and plenty of activities including craft fairs, horse shows, auctions and local theater
