Salisbury house description

Kingsley Mill Manor was the mill owner's house built in the late 1800's. Total privacy is yours while vacationing in a Vermont wonderland in all seasons. Just beyond the back yard flows a river through our new private swimming area. The waterfall there can be viewed from the back deck. Music from the falls bathes the house.

Hiking, biking, cross country skiing, and snowmobile trails start at the back door and connect to the VAST statewide trail system. Lake Dunmore is less than 2 miles away, a five minute drive or an hour hike via the trails. Middlebury College is 10 minutes from the house.

Watch the sun rise over the mountain. Enjoy bonfires in the back yard fire pit. A wrap around porch with a hanging loveseat defines easy living, and our new four seaon screened porch offers privacy, river music, and a fireplace.

There is plenty of lawn for large or small tents, plenty of parking and a large propane grill for outdoor eating. Pets are always welcome.

Historical Experience: Our lovely vacation home provides a homey and spacious surrounding for a family gathering, reunions, weddings, or simply to get away from it all in pure Vermont privacy. Built over 175 years ago, you can witness the only standing mill in Salisbury. Please enjoy the multiple trails to other sites along the natural waterways. One of our trails now includes a footbridge over the falls to a private island for your fun and adventure.

Sandy beach, private swimming, suits optional.: With no visible neighbors bask in the sun on the banks of our sandy beach. This private swimming area is four feet deep, shallow enough for children, deep enough for real swimming. Adult supervision required for children. Jump into the water from the dam, sit under the waterfall or in our natural whirlpool and let your worries be washed away. There is a picnic table for a real beach experience. A paradise for all ages.

Our rebuilt, enlarged four season screened back porch overlooks the swimming area and the waterfall. We just installed an efficient and automatic fireplace/stove in the porch. Watch the snow fall in cozy, warm comfort. Great place for breakfast, barbecue, and sleeping.

Snowmobile and cross country ski heaven: Middlebury Snow Bowl is very close for downhill skiing, Killington less than an hour away. Literally from our back door you can cross country ski on challenging trails with no trail fees For snowmobilers it is heaven. Access to the VAST trail is direct from the backyard. There is a pond for Ice fishermen as well as a private trail to Lake Dunmore. Ice skating in the wild or at the rink just ten minutes away. Snow shoeing on our ski trails will take you through the woods and open land. From here you can roam the entire state of Vermont on the VAST trail system.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: Jalna and David met later in life in 2003. We were married in 2008. Our choice was to live up north at David's place and turn the house where Jalna raised her family into Kingsley Mill Manor. It's our favorite place to vacation. Our passion is to continue working on the Manor to make it ever more comfortable as a vacation rental. Currently David is improving the driveway and entry. Our dreams include a new master bedroom suite with a balcony overlooking the waterfall. Someday we'd like to restore the last standing Kingsley mill, which is on the property and go green with water power from the river.

                  Why the Owner Chose Salisbury:
                  Kingsley Mill Manor has location, location, location. It's very private with no visible neighbors, yet a quarter mile from the village. A river runs through the property with two gorgeous swimming areas and a waterfall. Behind Kingsley the land is owned by the Middlebury Land Trust so will remain undeveloped. A trail runs from our back door to Lake Dunmore. This trail is part of the VAST system of snowmobile/cross country skiing trails that spans Vermont. It's also a gorgeous hike. The house is large, comfortable, with a long history. It is the perfect setup for a vacation rental, for family reunions, for ski teams, organizational meetings, weddings and just plain fun.
