Property description

*Please note that our home is only available for weekly rentals over holiday and school vacations

Our renovated 180 year-old farmhouse is nestled in a small valley that lies under majestic Mt. Mansfield. Surrounded by farmland and knock-your-socks-off mountain views, our home is a place of peace and serenity that overlooks acres of pastures, streams, and woodlands.

Unlike other old farmhouses that have small rooms and confined spaces, our home has an open floor plan with 8 ft. ceilings, creating an atmosphere that is light and airy. Decorated in warm greens and earthy colors, each room has its own charm and character.

Three bedrooms have either queen-size or full beds, and the other two bedrooms have single beds. The master bedroom has a private full bath, while the other bedrooms share a bathroom. Large floor areas can accommodate air mattresses and sleeping bags. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for the most accomplished cook to prepare gourmet feasts.

Underhill and the surrounding region have an amazing array of opportunities for everyone’s taste. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast and like your days to be filled with adventure and adrenaline, there’s a whole network of trails right outside our back door for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. A five minute drive will take you to our best sledding hill that will thrill the kids and wear them out for the night.

Smuggler's Notch Ski Resort is just a 10 minute drive from our house. If you are the adventurous sort, you can ski over the top of the mountain from Smuggler's Ski Resort to Stowe and ski there for the day. Or you can hop in the car and drive 45 minutes to Jay Peak, another great ski resort in Northern Vermont.

For those looking for more cultural activities, there is no lack of beautiful vistas for the photographer and artist. There are multitudes of antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, theatres, and shops all within a 50 mile radius that includes the resort town of Stowe and Vermont’s largest city, Burlington.

Our home is the perfect place for your Vermont vacation. It is also the perfect setting for celebrations like weddings and graduations. Invite your family, friends and relatives to stay here with you.

There are plenty of businesses in the area that would be happy to help you with catering and other services you might need. Contact us with any questions or concerns you have. We’ll be glad to help!
