Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We purchased our property in 1997 after visiting the Mad River Valley for several years.It was easy to fall in love the tranquility and beauty of the Mad River Valley. Since our children are just finishing their studies and not living at home anymore, we decided to share our piece of paradise with others. We are constantly upgrading the guest house and apartment to make it more and more comfortable for our guests. It will be our pleasure to share our hospitality with you and provide you with a wonderful vacation experience.

Why the Owner Chose Waitsfield:
Private, spacious, beautiful setting and great location. Located just 15 minutes from ski areas, 5 minutes from shopping areas. Property that is equally beautiful during any season.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location location location - Near several ski areas and local shopping. Also close to several key wedding destinations. (The Round Barn, Skinner Barn (5miles), the 1824 Inn (1/2 mile) Easy access off of Route 100. Nice private setting with mountain views and adjacent to beautiful brook. Relatively close proximity to the ski areas without the hustle and bustle of staying on the mountain. Only 5 minutes from shopping areas.
