              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Twin Birches has been a part of family gatherings and romantic getaways for 20 years. We celebrated my mother's 80th birthday with siblings, spouses and grand children from up and down east coast and as far away as London. All 29 of us sat at tables set up in the family room. When the house is bursting with family during the winter holidays, my mother loves to hear the plow on early snowy mornings knowing that some will be off to the mountain and others will stay behind to sit by the fire and read a good book. In the summer she likes to hear children splashing in the pool and waits to hear about adventures of hiking in Merck forest or the trouble people get into shopping in the discount stores in Manchester...Armani, Crew, Theory, etc.

              Why the Owner Chose Dorset:
              My parents were excited to buy property in the Battenkill Valley because my father came here as a boy to visit his uncle, Horace Brown, a famous Vermont artist and a founder of the Southern Vermont Art Center, and to play golf with his father and 2 brothers while staying at the Equinox Hotel. Come share the fun, make new memories and love it as much as we do.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Places to go, things to do and see 15-30 minutes from Twin Birches All Year-Round: Bromely Mountain, Stratton Mountain, Magic Mountain, Hildene, Southern Vermont Art Center, Northshire Bookstore and Cafe, Equinox Hotel and Spa, Dorset Inn and Tavern, Merck Forest, Outlet Shopping Seasonal: Skiing, skating, cross country skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, swimming at quarry, Dorset Playhouse, Manchester Music Festival, Annual Vermont Horse Show, Gleneagles Golf, Manchester Golf, Battenkill River fly fishing, canoeing, kayaking and tubing, Farmer's Markets, Pick-Your-Own blueberries, apples, pumpkins, foliaging, antiquing, hiking, biking Fall: Enjoying foliage, antiquing, Farmer's Markets, Pick-Your-Own apples and pumpkins, hiking, biking Your-Own blueberries, biking Fall: Enjoying foliage, antiquing, biking, hiking, Pick-Your-Own apples and pumpkins Be sure to check out our virtual tour of Twin Birches.
