Belmont apartment description

Get away from it all in only a few hours!! Spend a fabulous vacation in bucolic, scenic Vermont in your own corner of the world with easy access to everything you need.

Peace and quiet, and star studded skies -- this private apartment above our garage on beautiful property in the Green Mountains is an immediate hit with all our guests. It is the perfect family getaway or romantic retreat. Trails for hiking and mountain biking, snowmobiling or snowshoeing are outside your door. Take a leisurely stroll down to the lake for swimming, or fishing. Or head out into the maple sugar lot. Canoe or kayak the pristine lakes around the area using our boats or yours. Other amenities including Okemo Mountain resort, great restaurants, and shopping at the Vermont Country store are only 5 to 15 minutes away. Killington, Bromley and Stratton Mountains are only 35 to 45 minutes away. It is in the moose and bear habitat of Mount Holly where you can find wildlife if you are patient and alert!

The open floor plan features a cathedral ceiling and hard wood floors. There is a beautiful marble and cherry breakfast island with great views of protected bear corridor on Killington Mountain. It features a spiral staircase to the loft that is a great sleeping and hiding area for little ones! On the main floor the two bedrooms are divided by pocket doors. One has a king sized bed while the other has a double bed. The well equipped kitchen has an icemaker, coffee maker and bar sink.

Refresh your body and soul in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Wireless internet is available but working is not advised -- there is so much to do!!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: David Hoeh and Brigid Sullivan are happy to welcome you to our idealistic setting in the Green Mountains of south central Vermont. We feel fortunate to be able to enjoy the beautiful seasons of Vermont and want to share it with our guests. We are experienced world travelers and understand what you need to be comfortable away from home. David's ancestors were early settlers in Mount Holly. He has spent some time here every year of his life. He loves to share local history and his knowledge of great spots to visit. In the summer and fall enjoy the vegetables and herbs from our gardens.

              Why the Owner Chose Belmont:
              The apartment, attached to our home, with the same spectacular views, is a secret hide away. It is on a dead-end dirt road in a tiny, wonderful Vermont hamlet. At the opposite end of our living areas, the apartment is private and cozy. The property has been David's summer home since the 1940's.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The landscape is beautiful and it is so peaceful and quiet here. You can hear the winds whispering in the trees or howling in a blizzard and then it is quiet again. The skies are clear at night and the stars are spectacular. Venturing outdoors at night is an amazing experience to be cherished. Walk to the village for coffee and pastry or a sandwich. Enjoy the lake with a refreshing swim or ice skating or fishing. Don't forget your camera as every day is different and the scenery is stunning. The Village is charming with the historical museum open on weekends. Family style dinners at the Odd Fellow Hall are delicious and a taste of real Vermont. Fireworks and the bonfire, skating and hot chocolate on New Years Eve are right out of Currier and Ives. Music on the Green during the summer is a relaxing way to spend a great evening.
