Property description

Vermont is all about mountains, outdoor life and peaceful, beautiful surroundings. Upon arrive you will find it difficult to leave this one-of-a-kind four bedroom log home in paradise. It has all the ambiance you could wish for....warm and charming with spectacular views and large private spring-fed swimming pond with dock and raft for diving or sunbathing.

This very comfortable, family and pet-friendly home has a large open floor plan with cathedral ceilings in both living room and dining room, massive two-sided stone fireplace, unique 12-person custom pine table in dining area, and spacious loft with additional TV/DVD for the kids. Enjoy mountain views from every room in the house including large picture windows in living, dining and master bedroom. This house comfortably sleeps a maximum of 8 people in four bedrooms; portable beds are available for two additional people at an additional cost of $50 per person per night.

During the summer find yourself relaxing in our adirondack chairs on the expansive lawn or large farmers porch overlooking the large serene spring-fed swimming pond, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, spectacular mountain views and sunsets. Gaze into the sky and you will see soaring gliders from nearby Stowe airport, hot air balloons or migrating Canadian geese. In winter, step outside with your snowshoes or cross-country skis onto local trails or enjoy watching your children playing or sledding in the snow. And of course, you can also enjoy some of the best skiing in the East just 20 minutes away at the Mt. Mansfield ski resort, 45 minutes to Jay Peak and 55 minutes to Sugarbush.

Take a short drive into Stowe Village and indulge yourself in shopping, fine dining and world-class spa facilities. Or travel up the Mountain Road to visit Mt. Mansfield and the new $400 million resort at Spruce Speak at Stowe and experience the new hotel, spa, restaurants and shops, base lodge, 18-hole golf course, and much more. Also visit the newest exciting addition to the community, the recently opened Performing Arts Center at Spruce Peak . In the summer, enjoy many local activities such as the Hot Air Balloon Festival in July, summer concerts, antique car shows and farmer's market.

We know that your stay here will be fun, relaxing and memorable for your entire family and friends and you will want to return again to this lovely property in paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: My husband Peter and I both grew up in Beverly, Massachusetts. He has always had roots in Vermont, since he and most of his family were born in the Stowe area. In fact his father was on the original crew that built and operated the first ski trails and lifts at Mt. Mansfield. Peter spent many summers and winters in Vermont as a child and eventually became a professional free-style skier in the 70's. Because of his love for Vermont and family connection, he built our wonderful log home on this beautiful property with breath-taking views. I also had moved to Warren, Vermont in the late 70's where I owned a home with a beautiful horse farm for 15 years. Coincidentally, after many years Peter and I re-met in Stowe during a weekend visit. I later relocated to Massachusetts, and we eventually married with a lovely outdoor wedding at our Vermont home. Needless to say, Vermont still has a special meaning to the both of us, and we are always reminded of how romantic the area is and how we fell in love everytime we are there!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private, Spectacular Views, Swimming Pond, Close to Stowe and Morrisville and 3 Ski Resorts
