Huntington house description

Relax and unwind in your own private setting. This unique property is located in the gorgeous Huntington River Valley - just over the hill from major ski resorts, yet totally removed in attitude and energy - and much closer to Burlington. If you want to have access to all the restaurants and amenities that Burlington and the ski friendly Mad River Valley offer, yet retreat to your own private world at the end of a day - this is the spot for you.

Situated on over eight private acres (and backing up to hundreds more of state forest), with not a neighbor in sight - the setting will bring you serenity and peace. The interior has been decorated by artists and built by local craftspeople - so you'll feel part of the unique culture of Vermont. Huntington is a wonderful town, close to Burlington, Vermont's largest city, with theatres, restaurants, colleges and great shopping - yet retains its small town charm and bucolic farming tradition.

In summer, there is a large sunny deck with chairs and tables for reading or eating while listening to the sounds of birds and the rush of a nearby waterfall. A hammock hangs among the sweet smelling pines in front of the house. The deck also has a traditional wood-fired hot tub to relax in enjoy and watch the stars from at night.

High speed wireless internet allows you to stay connected to the outside world if that will make your vacation more relaxing.

The large bath was completely remodeled in 2006 and includes an antique medicine chest, a large restored clawfoot shower-tub with a view of the surrounding hills, designer glass tile and bamboo flooring. A new deck was added to the rear of the house in 2012.

In summer, take a leisurely drive (the nearest traffic light is 15 miles away) to some of the wonderful organic farms and farmers markets for fresh Vermont produce and dairy and cook a fantastic meal in the large well-equipped country kitchen with dishwasher. You can create a feast here - or a simple country breakfast. Or choose from many fine restaurants in the area, like Mary's in Bristol.

More great restaurants using local ingredients are available in Richmond, Bristol, Burlington and Warren or Waitsfield - all within 20 minutes from the property (except Burlington, which is 35 mins).

In winter, ski out the front door and enjoy cross-country delights for hours. Or hop in your car for a short drive to the 'majors.' Sugarbush is 20 mins from the front door. Stowe is 45 mins away, Mad River Glen just 10 mins away. Return home to a crackling glass-front woodstove and or hook up your ipod to the stereo with provided cable. Apple TV too. Relax and enjoy! Ten million times better than a hotel!

Email with questions - please check online calendar for availability - it is kept updated at all times. Submit all rental requests via this site, please, as it helps us keep track of guests in a consistent manner.

Something cool - this house is powered by Cow Dung! Not a joke - through a special program with the local electric utility, electric power used in the house is generated through a special program that partners with local dairy farms to use their cow waste to generate electricity. Google 'cvps cow power' for more info.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: I love to travel - been around the world! And whenever I travel, I like to feel a little bit at home - so I think my Vermont home reflects this - both with design elements and basic comforts. I often stay in other people's homes on my travels and I've taken some of the best tips (like using all white linens so they can always be fresh and clean from Mike in P-town), and getting an electric kettle (thanks to Fiona in Berlin!) for easy tea making. I'm a fairly casual guy so the house reflects that - I like to say it is NOT A CONDO in Stowe, so please expect some of the minor imperfections that come with a house in the woods like the occasional insect or cobweb. If you are a heavy user of Purell, Glade Plug-Ins or similar products, you might be more comfortable in another spot.

                      Why the Owner Chose Huntington:
                      I lived here for 8 years and loved it. It's close to things, yet really remote at the same time.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It is one of the most peaceful places on earth. The stars at night are incredible - northern lights and shooting stars are often seen here. Wonderful waterfall across the road.
