Cavendish house description
This is our vacation home. It truly is our dream house and we share it in the spring, summer and fall months. We use it in the winter every weekend and during vacations for skiing at Okemo. Our family is happiest when we are at this house in Vermont. It is a very large and comfortable home that we custom designed and built. The home is a 18th century farmhouse with 21st century amenities. All of the furniture is new, clean and comfortable. We all sleep really well in this house as the beds are wonderful and it is absolutely quiet.
The views are spectacular and we see plenty of wildlife in the meadows and fields surrounding the house. It is a magical place. If you want a true country getaway in a luxury home, this is the vacation for you. We have found many excellent restaurants nearby, but we also like to cook at home as the appliances are high end and the kitchen is very large and sunny. It is a joy to share a meal with family and friends in this house. You could just stay in the house, walk or jog on the country roads or you could explore this charming area of Vermont.. Towns like Woodstock and Quechee are close by and offer top quality antiquing and dining. There are also several very nice spas in the area that we enjoy.
The foliage in the fall is absolutely the best we've ever seen and it is surrounding the house! You can be a leaf peeper from your bed! We are willing to share our home with people who will respect it and take good care of it.

Fabulous Farmhouse that feels like Home!
Fabulous Farmhouse that feels like Home!
My family stayed at this farmhouse last summer and we're hoping to do the same again this summer. There were no surprises with our visit, except perhaps that the visit exceeded our expectations! The description is accurate - the rooms are beautifully furnished and the beds and furniture very comfortable. The wide planked floors are truly beautiful - just what you would expect in a luxury home in Vermont! It is spotlessly clean and the kitchen was so much fun to cook in! All of the appliances are state of the art and so easy to use. The exercise room was very convenient when we weren't out hiking or golfing. The owners were super helpful with our questions about what to do in the area and even how to use the TV! My favorite experience was having coffee in the morning on the rocking chairs outside, waking up with the sun over the mountains. And again, in the evening, sitting out with a glass of wine - everything was so peaceful. While the house sits in the middle of a beautiful clearing, the mountains surrounding it provide serenity - I agree with the owner, it's like time moves a little slower up there, one can breath a little easier! We played golf at Okemo and then shopped for dinner at a really cute country store - things were easy to get to. We even visited Dartmouth in Hanover one day, and that was pretty close too and great fun. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives. We've traveled all over New England, Vermont and New Hampshire, and this house is second to none. I look forward to my next visit and hope to have many more.

About the owner: We are a family who would love to become residents of Vermont one day and to retire in this home. Our children are happiest when we are at our Vermont home. This is the ideal place for family time. My parents enjoy coming to the house with friends. Actually, every one who visits loves it and doesn't want to leave. It is perfect for being 'unplugged'. Time really does seem to slow down for us in this home and in Vermont. It is a perfect vacation!
Why the Owner Chose Cavendish:
There is something to do every season of the year in this area of Vermont. It is also an easy drive from Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Massachusetts, Canada and other locations. We are only a half hour drive from the I-91 and the roads are excellent.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We like to sit on the front porch early in the morning with a hot cup of coffee or tea and watch the sun rise over the mountains. The colors are so beautiful. Artists come to our property because it offers such beautiful landscapes to paint.
