Rochester guest house description

Situated on 10 beautiful acres with two ponds, a brook with a water hole, and views of the Green Mountains.

Inside, you will find a warm spacious atmosphere, where a large family or group will feel right at home surrounded by country style antiques and decorations. There are two separate sides of the house, so families can find as little or as much privacy as desired. The 2600 square foot house has 13 rooms, 2 fully-eqiupped kitchens, a large dining room with 2 dining tables and a beautiful wood stove, 2 living rooms with 2 fireplaces, a family room complete with a tv and videos, a library/game/office room with wifi, books and games for all ages, 2 heated sun porches, a large screened-in porch where you can enjoy a family meal or quiet contemplation with the sounds of the brook behind, a deck, 5 bedrooms, and 2 full and one half bathrooms. The 5 bedrooms sleep 12 people, but there are 4 fold-out couches that sleep 7 people, and we can supply fold-out cots as needed.

Outside, you will be surrounded by the beautiful green mountains and the sound of the brook. In the winter you can enjoy cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, and children and the young at heart will enjoy our many sleds and toboggans. In the summer you can enjoy the pond with a canoe and tubes, the brick fireplace grill, jumping in the brook's water hole, hiking, volleyball, badminton, and other games. And in the fall, children will enjoy picking apples in the yard and a world of incredible foliage abounds!

The Brook House is located between Killington, Sugarbush, Pico Mountain, Mad River Glen, and the Middlebury College Snow bowl. Step off our property and more adventures await you! Nothing beats the beautiful back roads and incredible vistas of the North Hollows for biking. The whole family will enjoy the thrill of tubing on the White River, perusing antique shops, the pick-your-own berry farm, and the golf course. The beautiful center of town is only two minutes away, with it's concerts on the Park, Chamber concerts, homey cafes, pubs, and shops, and The Huntington House Restaurant with it's gourmet dining.

Our home is a unique owner built 13 room country house including an attached three room separate apartment. Could be used as one single family home or rented separately. Both parts of the house are handicap accessible. The larger side includes a kitchen, living room with a fireplace, large dining room, large family room/first floor bedroom with satellite TV, small office, large sunny glass-enclosed front porch with fold-out couch, large screened-in back porch (with a fold-out couch in the summer) and deck with the peaceful sounds of a mountain brook, full handicapped bathroom with washer and dryer. Second floor has four bedrooms and a half bath with two sinks. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a Jacuzzi. The second and third bedrooms have full-sized beds. The fourth bedroom has one full-sized bed and one twin bed. There are also two cots available.

The small portion of the house has a large kitchen/dining/living room with a fireplace and fold out couch, bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a single bed, large sunny glass-enclosed heated porch with a fold out couch, and a full bathroom.

The first floor of the house is completely wheelchair/handicap accessible including a full bathroom with wheelchair accessible shower, toilet, sink and mirror.

Beautiful setting with mountain views, flowering perennials, and a swimming pond on partly wooded 10 acres. Borders a mountain brook that can be heard from the house.

Phone, cable TV, and wireless hi-speed internet included. One mile to the center of Rochester, a beautiful country town. Views of the Green Mountains which are only minutes away.

Perfect for year-round adventure - summer vacation, fall foliage viewing or winter ski lodge.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: We were thrilled to purchase this house on ten acres which was once part of our 92 acre farm that we have owned since 1988. We loved furnishing and decorating the house and it has been extremely rewarding to hear the warm praise from the many families, groups, wedding parties, and ski teams that have stayed in the Brook House.
