Dorset house description

Travel back in time to the quaint villages and outdoor beauty of the Green Mountains in this sprawling Vermont vacation home! You will enjoy all the comforts of home and more as you awaken every morning from a deep and restful country sleep, gaze through the French doors at the beautiful misty mountains, and brew a cup of steaming French Roast coffee to enjoy on the balcony in your bathrobe.

Maybe you don't even need to leave the house today after all. You can wander between our 3 living rooms, Great Room and Sun Room, trying to decide which one has the coziest spot for curling up with your coffee. Or maybe you'd rather decide which of our 3 decks and patios has the sunniest spot. Or you could wander up the back yard to the pond, relax in an Adirondack chair and watch the fish jump. But if all this fresh air has you feeling like a kid again, head for the tree swing in our big, gorgeous maple! You can hardly tear yourself away, but there are so many wonderful things to explore in Dorset and Manchester!

Rush hour (Vermont Style) consists of watching the goldfinches, chickadees and nuthatches take turns acrobatically swooping into the feeders for breakfast. Charming antique shops await 3 minutes away on Dorset Green, and 7 minutes away in Manchester Center. Not to mention the highly-acclaimed Southern Vermont Art Center, the historic Hildene House (former home of Robert Todd Lincoln) and the famous Vermont Country store. There are many activities all year round, including the Manchester Summer Horse Festival, art fairs, Sunday farmers' markets, outlet shopping, golf, fishing, canoeing, horse-back riding and don't forget incredible hiking. Exploring covered bridges in the area is a cherished favorite pastime. All of these activities and more are within a 30 minute radius!

When you return home for the evening, enjoy an outdoor game of badminton, volleyball, croquet or bocce ball in the back yard or relax by the pond. Then head indoors, light a wood fire in the huge stone fireplace in the Great Room and curl up on the overstuffed sofa with a good book, play some Scrabble (we have lots of games), or watch a little TV on our 40' High Def flat screen with DVR and Blu-Ray player. Bring along a few DVD's you've been trying to find time to watch, or try your hand at one of our 17 Wii games and Guitar Hero. We have high-speed wireless internet and unlimited free long distance calling if you need to catch up on a few things. You'll also love our Sonos Rhapsody and Pandora internet-based music system! Listen to just about any song ever recorded at the touch of a button on the 3 music zones around the house and outdoors by the hot tub.

For dinner your first night, bake a delicious Chicken Pot Pie from historic Dorset Union General store on Dorset Green. But be sure to venture out for a great meal at one of the many award-winning restaurants close by. Bring your favorite recipes from home to cook up a feast in our well-appointed and newly remodeled kitchen with breakfast bar, then gather everyone in the formal dining room for a cozy fireside meal. After dinner it's time to relax and watch the sunset over the mountains in our very private 7 person jetted hot tub, or roast marshmallows around the outdoor fire pit while gazing at the incredible Milky Way!

Dorset is a quaint location in every season. In the spring you will enjoy our gorgeous lilac bushes in full bloom and the budding birch trees, and be sure to visit a real maple syrup 'sugar shack'. In summertime, you must take a swim in the local favorite swimming spot, the Dorset marble quarry...and don’t forget the picnic lunch. In the fall our stately maple trees and mountainsides are ablaze with color and in winter you must skate on our pond, sled down our hill and take a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride!

Our little hamlet of Dorset, Vermont is located in the Southwest corner of the state, in the heart of the Green Mountains, only 4 hours drive from New York City and 3 hours from Boston. If you fly in, Albany, New York is the closest major airport, and Dorset is 1:15 minutes northeast by car. Burlington, Vermont is 2 hours north of us, and Manchester, New Hampshire is about 2:30 minutes east of us. We know you'll fall in love with Dorset just as we did. We can't wait to have you as our guests!

The Dorset Farmer's Market is a must, as well as the Southern Vermont Arts Center and Hildene House, the gorgeous, historic estate of Robert Todd Lincoln.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: Hi, I'm Suzanne and I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I moved there in 2000 when I was hired as an airline pilot. Cincinnati is a fantastic city, but I love coming back to the beautiful peace and quiet of the Green Mountains in Dorset, Vermont any chance I get. I know you will too!

                  Why the Owner Chose Dorset:
                  My mother purchased our family vacation home in Dorset, Vermont in 1999. It was always her dream to own a home in Dorset ever since at age 18 she joined the Dorset Playhouse Players and did summer stock theater in 1959 with Dom DeLuise, his wife Carol Arthur and many others. Dorset made its way into all their hearts, and they also own homes in Dorset. After long days rehearsing plays and building sets they would cool off by jumping into the marble quarry down the road. It's still our favorite family tradition every summer! Dorset will find its way into your heart too and become a beloved destination you will cherish always.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  What I love about our home is how spacious and sprawling it is. No matter how large your group is, you can always find a quiet place to call your own. From the numerous comfy couches and living areas inside, to the many decks and patios outside, the picnic table and kids' barn shed hangout by our pond, or the tree swing in the big maple, there are so many places to relax and enjoy! But what I love most is throwing open the French doors at night and sleeping with the cool fresh mountain air breezing in, then waking up to the sound of the birds. It is so peaceful and quiet that I forget the rest of the world exists.
