Car: Recommended

This rental property is located in the heart of the scenic mad river valley close to the mad river ski area, sugarbush ski area. The property itself sits on three acres of rolling terrain with beautiful evergreens. You can go sledding, snowshoe or xc-ski right out your front door on the property.

There are thousands of acres of national forest land and some of the finest hiking in new England as the long trail runs directly through the spine of the green mountains and across the summits of mad river glen, molly Stark's mountain, Mount Ellen and Lincoln peak.

You are minutes away from downtown waitsfield where there is shopping, restaurants, a movie theater and bars. Enjoy fine dining at the peasant, of hit the den for a meal and a few cocktails. There is live entertainment at the local folks tavern, as well as more great eats at the Lareau farm (American flatbread pizza). Just past the lareau farm is the purple mon cafe and tavern where you can eat lunch or enjoy fine dining in the evening in their pub. Try a little apres ski at the 'hyde-a way' where you can sit by a warm fire and enjoy your favorite beverage. All these attractions within 5 minutes of our property.

A ten minute drive will bring you to the base of sugarbush Lincoln peak, sugarbush Mount Ellen or the famed mad river glen. These ski areas combined offer well over 150 trails and are ranked tops in New England, not to mention some of the finest tree skiing and back country skiing in the country.

Within 10 to fifteen minutes there are two xcountry skiing centers, they are Bluebery lake and ole's where you can find kilometers of groomed trails to ski or skate!

In the summer some of the finest mountain biking in the country is experienced along with many available day hikes in the local area. There also is some of the best road biking in New England, especially for the brave who want to ride up and down the Appalachian gap and Lincoln gap.

In addition to these activities you can also golf at the world class robert trent jones sr. Sugarbush golf course, play frisbee or ride the zipline at sugarbush. There are also several sports and fitness centers in the area, as well as tennis locally.

A great fall activity is the amazing Vermont foliage or a glider ride high above the green mountains out of the warren airport just ten minutes from the property.

You are only about a minute from the mad river where you can swim, canoe, kayak or tubing. In the summer the mad can be a very peaceful float, and in the spring there can be whitewater to challenge the best.

The property itself is located on a private road away from the hustle and bustle so you can enjoy the peace and quiet while being only minutes away from all the activities the area has to offer.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We currently live just a few hundred yards down the private road this property is located on, so we are not far if you need anything.

Why the Owner Chose Waitsfield:
I came to VT back in 1982 from the city thinking I would get a year of skiing in and go back to the city. I never went back and can not say enough about the quality of life in the Mad River Valley

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house was recently purchased in October 2012. I have been driving by this property for the past 25 years admiring it and its beautiful yard and landscape. When I finally had a chance to buy it, there was no hesitation. You will get the same feeling about the place when you rent and stay.
