Property description

This dramatic 40 acre compound feels reminiscent of an exclusive New England lodge. The grounds are park-like, designed by landscape architect Richard Haag, with vistas across lush meadows, soaring trees and mossy knolls. When walking on trails weaving through the property you’ll come upon a children’s playhouse, outdoor theater, tipi, two private lakes, cabins, and a guest house. The delight of discovery is not limited to the outdoors; you’ll find the professionally designed interiors of each residence and sleeping cabins to be elegant, whimsical, rustic, and perfectly characterized. Each item of furnishing and décor, including fine antiques, thematic collectibles, and vintage “finds” has been carefully crafted and artfully placed for maximum comfort and visual interest.

The primary residence is a grand “Barn” constructed of two historic 1800’s-era Vermont barns that were salvaged, transported, and reassembled into a fabulous Northwest country residence. The integrity of form and function will please the most discriminating; the center pitch soars to 26’, supported by solid timber posts, floors are original wide plank, the alcoves and loft create spaces of both volume and coziness. On opposite sides of the structure, huge doors open onto broad bluestone terraces; on one flank is an enormous hot tub; on the other, a BBQ and several teak tables for outdoor dining. In the quadrants of the soaring Barn you'll find a vintage billiard table, game table, big rock-faced fireplace, and the BowWow Bar complete with refrigerator, dishwasher, and TV. (Sorry, Bowser, despite the name, the owner’s dogs are the only ones welcome here.) In one corner, a gleaming Wurlitzer jukebox is stocked with an enviable collection of CD’s.

The kitchen and dining spaces are warm and beautiful, featuring a huge wooden prep island, the best of contemporary appliances, and a large table with seating for 10. Also on the main level are a powder room, mudroom, and lovely bedroom with queen bed, sitting area, and en-suite bath with soaking tub and shower. Upstairs in the loft, there’s a sofabed, 2nd TV, foosball table, and 2nd powder room. Two elevated sleeping spaces are reached by climbing up individual ladders (great for older children and spry adults.)
Sleeping areas in the Barn are limited but extended family & friends will love heading off to sleep in their own private guesthouse or cabins located in other sections of the compound. Just across from the Barn is the Paddock, a glamorous equestrain themed bunkhouse. The Paddock contains a large bathroom, two queen beds (each with an alove and draped for privacy) and two sets of bunks built along one wall. The Paddock is perfect for a smaller family or children with nanny.

Within a ten minute walk are two attached well-appointed lakeside cabins and a detached bathroom/bathhouse. One cabin contains a queen bed, the second contains two twins. The cabins can also be reached by car. (We're sorry, but use of owner's watercraft and swimming in the lakes is prohibited.)

Up to four more guests will enjoy maximum privacy in a fully equipped guesthouse perched on a knoll at the further side of the property. This second residence features a wrap-around terrace overlooking a private lake, full kitchen, living area, laundry, and powder room. Two bedrooms and a full bath are on the upper level; one bedroom contains a queen size bed, the second contains two twin beds. The Guesthouse is a 15 minute walk through the grounds distant from the Barn, but also has a direct gated entry. (The Guesthouse may be rented individually during the Quiet Season - call for more information and photos of the guesthouse and cabins.)

Properties of this category are rarely available for vacation rental. (We are sorry but weddings and non-renter events are prohibited.) As the owners are frequently in residence, the availability calendar is not always accurate - please call our office to verify availability and discuss specific use.
