- A couple of moose ambled through the Beaver Pond in late Sept. 2012. You'll see a picture on our site to prove it. We've also been entertained by the beaver population in the pond. And a local black bear and cub have made their way along the back side of the house on their way to the pond. Can you say tranquility? To sit out back on the deck some 15' above the yard and feel the peace...priceless! Hike in nearby woods. Behold the expanse of the Milky Way in the dark Night Sky. Have ease of access to Mount Snow from the 'traffic lite' north side just 3 miles away. Enjoy the best that Vermont woodlands has to offer. For on site massage, contract with Marci Himelson with Mount Snow Massage (802) 464-5602. For on site sitters, contract with Deerfield Valley Sitters (802) 490-4729. ...moreless

About the owner: Betsy and I lived in and loved the Mount Snow Valley and its people for 10 years prior to our move south as a pastoral family. We knew this would be the location of our future retirement home where our grown family and all our friends could comfortably gather to renew relationships and build new found community. As the sign says in the living room, 'Friends are the family you find along the way.' We hope you'll discover such warmth in this place. Betsy and I are Massachusetts natives (Amherst & Braintree respectively). We met at college at the University of Massachusetts, setting our eyes on the future. Married one week after graduating, I then continued with my graduate degree in the area of Pastoral Ministry within a progressive denomination. Betsy's field has been greenhouse management. We take a rather pragmatic view of life, raising 3 kids to love the simple pleasures and to revel in the out of doors. It is one of the reasons our hearts leaped when we discovered the property only 11 miles from where we once lived. We knew it was the right place for our future home. And in 2010, construction got underway to fulfill a very big dream that we've long shared.
Why the Owner Chose West Wardsboro:
As previously noted, we are outdoor people who love the environment and revel in the unique beauty of all the changing seasons. Each has a character uniquely its own. The wetland behind the house is an active ecosystem that enthralls visitors. Between activity in the pond, the interplay of color and shadows, floral beauty, a very dark night sky where the Milky Way band leaps out at you, and easy access to the two incredible mountains and their amenities just around the corner along with all the lakes and trails for outdoor enthusiasts, this is about as good as it gets in our mind's eye!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When preparing to build, we fell in love with a special design. It melded Betsy's dream of a Country Farm House with a lovely front porch with my vision of a hybrid Colonial. While we employed skilled framers and other trades people do what they do best, we (along with family and so many friends) have labored countless hours to finish interior and exterior to our liking. It has taken two years to get to this point often working just 1-1/2 days per week save for vacation time, but slowly the dream has been realized. Now we are pleased to share it with you!
