Property description

The old family farmhouse is located at Viking Nordic Center, up a rise on a quiet secondary road less than 5 minutes from the center of Londonderry. The house is surrounded by landscaped grounds including a huge backyard beyond which there is a small pond. A large deck overlooks a 3 acre meadow with the Green Mountains serving as the backdrop. Beyond the meadow Viking Nordic's acclaimed cross country ski trails roll through densely wooded Vermont countryside. Summer visitors have access to the 8 km Inner Trails which lie closer to the house. The house features a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, and an L-shaped living area with a fireplace and French doors opening onto a field stone patio and the backyard. Two of the bedrooms have private baths and a third bathroom is in the upstairs hall. Two of the bedrooms have queen mattresses, one a double, and one has 2 twins and a bunk bed.

In the winter guests have access to the Nordic center's 39 km of groomed cross country ski and snowshoe trails. Renter's receive complimentary trail passes.

Our Area of Vermont: The famous Vermont Country Store and Weston Playhouse are a 5 minute drive away. Manchester, with lots of outlet and boutique shopping, endless dining options, museums and galleries is an easy 15 minute drive. There are many children's entertainment options from farm tours to Bromley's Fun Zone including the world famous Alpine Slide. Magic Mountain boasts TimberQuest, a tree top ropes course complete with zip lines. In the winter, cross country ski or snowshoe out the door on the groomed trail network or downhill ski or snowboard at Stratton, Okemo, Bromley, or Magic. You will get complimentary skiing at Viking Nordic Center when you stay at the house.

Summer fun in the area: Saturday: West River Farmer's Market 1.5 miles away in Londonderry. Buy local produce, food and craft items.
Nearest Grocery store: Clark's IGA, a little gem less than 2 miles away

Location

Car: Necessary

The house is 1 mile from Londonderry shopping, 20 minutes from Manchester, and 6 miles from Weston. Also 20 minutes from Stratton and Okemo ski areas, 10 minutes from Bromley Mountain and the summer Fun Zone, and 5 minutes from Magic Mtn. The 72 acre property includes 8 km of private trails for summer and fall use and ski passes for each house guest for the 35 km cross country ski trail system during the winter.

In the summer and fall, guests can fill their days without ever leaving the house's grounds -- playing in the large yard, walking the ski trails, flying kites in the meadow, or watching the sun set over the Green Mountains from the raised deck in the meadow. And of course, walking, running, or biking over the private trail network. The Appalachian Trail and Long Trail are nearby, Lowell Lake State Park is 1/2 mile away for canoeing, and there many great options for kayaking and fishing. Miles of Vermont back roads are great for long bike rides, runs, or drives.

Other Activities: Cross country skiing & snowshoeing
