Snow (8 minutes away) or Stratton (20 minutes away); enjoy the Autumn leaves. Barbecue, play ball, on our broad, flat property. Meditate to the sound of Wardsboro creek. All new premium mattresses. Open concept living space with brick fireplace and stove in great room with wet bar. Cook's kitchen with breakfast bar, plus dining room. No need to worry about reaching the house in bad weather. An easy driveway leads to the house directly off Route 100, so no slipping or sliding! Despite the proximity to Route 100, the house feels private and very much in the country.
You enter the main floor of the house via an entry with room for your coats, boots and skis. A laundry area and half bath are adjacent to the entry way.

There are beds for 6 people on the top floor; two more can sleep on the futon in the great room or on the pull-out couch in front of the fireplace.
Outside of ski season, you can swim at local state parks and swimming holes, hike in the Green Mountain National Forest, ride the Alpine Slide at Bromley Mountain (half an hour away), or challenge the hills on your bicycle.
