Property description

Blue Haven Cottage:

Beautifully furnished in a charming and comfortable New England style, this house has been completely renovated yet retains a vintage Vermont charm. Great for year round fun:
- true skier's PARADISE with Okemo (8 miles), Bromley (12 mi), Stratton (15 mi), Magic Mountain (11 mi) and VAST trails in town!
- cool sweet mountain air and incredible theater, music, art shows in the summer!
- located on lovely Scenic Route 100 - Vermont's premier Foliage Route!

The house is open and bright; it has lots of windows and features covered porches on two sides! Our place sits on about an acre and is in between much larger parcels. There is lots of room to enjoy the outside, no matter which season.

Inside, we have wide plank poplar floors and pretty rugs throughout most of the 2 floors, so it is warm and easy to keep clean.

The first floor offers plenty of space in an open floor plan. Entry is through either one of the 2 big beautiful covered porches. There's a large double living room, shiny wide plank poplar wood floors, lots of oriental style carpets and a mix of good quality antique and modern furnishings making it elegant and comfortable.

Living room has plenty of comfortable and attractive seating for a big group to relax and open space for kids to play. Down 2 steps is the kitchen and the dining room. The kitchen is a cook's delight... It is well equipped and has lots of counter and cabinet space. The adjacent sunny open dining room features big windows on 2 sides, a big antique table and comfy seating for up to 8, which means that you'll have plenty of company (out of your way) while you whip up a hearty meal or reheat from the gourmet take out ;) It is very well equipped - even has a bread maker!

Second floor: Up the dramatic staircase is the well laid out second floor - there are four private bedrooms all off the central hall. This whole floor (except bathrooms) also has beautiful wide plank poplar wood floors.

#1 large master bedroom with Queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom - also a small office area with high speed Internet access (wireless Internet throughout the house). Windows on 3 sides to let in lots of light and vista views.

#2 large bedroom with Queen-size bed and direct access to shared bath - 3 windows on 2 sides make this a bright beautiful room.

#3 bedroom with double bed - shared bath is across the hall - cozy retreat that is beautifully decorated with 'VT Country Store' fabrics and an antique furniture.

#4 small bedroom with bunk beds - shared bath is next door - small but very comfortable with 2 closets and a big window.

All bedrooms have plenty of closet space and very comfortable quality furnishings, including good quality linens. All bathrooms are renovated & perfect

Blue Haven ...: This beautifully furnished and well laid out Vermont country home has charm and comfort in a peaceful setting yet close to 'everything'!

Weston is a 'picture postcard' Vermont village. Come and explore the original Vermont Country Store and the other shops, galleries, museums and restaurants of our small and very special village.

In the Winter you can have FOUR Ski Resorts with-in 16 miles - house is located on a very well plowed road, so you can get here or to the slopes in any weather! Never get bored skiing the same mountain every day - you are close enough to enjoy different terrains daily.

In the Spring and Summer you will enjoy the fresh air & sophisticated village country lifestyle. The Weston Playhouse is close by - this oldest theater in Vermont, offers 'Equity' performances in an intimate setting. The Weston rec center is a short walk -with courts and a spring fed swimming pond!

Of course in Autumn, you'll be on VT's main scenic foliage route and see dazzling colors

Whether a new or repeat visitor to the village of Weston, you are in for a treat!

Weston, on the National Register of Historic Places, is a quintessential beautiful Vermont town. Built around a charming town green, Weston is on the scenic West River (good for summer swimming, fishing, inner tubing, etc.) and is where the famous Vermont Country Store is located - along with the wonderful Weston Playhouse!

Winter - We are located in a 'Skier's Paradise'! Our house is on a well plowed road with 4 major ski centers (Okemo, Stratton, Magic, Bromley) & VAST trails - the closest is 8 miles/farthest only 16 miles! You'll never get bored skiing the same old slopes everyday! Cross county skiing / snowmobiling too

Fall - foliage is spectacular - We are on one of the state's recommended main foliage touring route ... or simply sit on the porch swing and enjoy!

Summer - Long warm days and cool nights. Hikes, horseback riding, lakes (swim, boat, fish) & outdoor fun. World Class Theater & Dining on 2 Equity stages in town. Other charming towns & shops are a quick, spectacular drive away.

Other Activities: ski 4 major resort mountains within 16 miles plus cross country trails and snowmobiles

Ski:

Just over the mountain, on well plowed Rte 100, from Okemo (7.5 miles) PLUS Stratton, Bromely and Magic all within 16 miles! Great choice of terrains and slopes so close by! Mt Snow, Killington and many many other slopes are a short easy drive too. Weston is quick to access in the winter and just out of the 'resort crush'. Why stay in a condo when you can have a beautiful house with easy slopes access and more space to enjoy!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are from Northern CA and fell in love with Weston and VT almost 20 years ago. Although impractical, we bought and have used this wonderful home as time's permitted and as our family grew up. It has hosted family groups big + small and always feels like home. in 2015 we bought another home in Weston and moved here full-time. We continue to love the area, the people, and we continue to host visitors in our "sweet blue house" so that they can share the adventure and explore VT.

Why the Owner Chose Weston, VT, USA:
The home is so comfortable, well constructed and well laid out ... it is an easy home to love. Also, the location is perfect: easy to reach from Boston (under 3 hrs) and NYC (under 4 hrs) ... no matter what the weather throws at you. Equally important, when you get here you'll find yourself located 1 mile from the Village Green in the most perfect (not only my opinion) town in VT.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The house is not huge but it seems much bigger due to its design. With 4 private bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a wide open 1st floor plan, there is room for everyone together, room to be left alone and it's easy to keep clean / tidy. You never feel crowded or like it's a lot of work to keep it nice. Of course the most important benefit in the winter is the incredibly close proximity to amazing slopes at some of the best ski areas in the East! The location during Foliage Season and Summer Theater Season are equally amazing! There is always so much to do and see here ... but relaxing by the wood stove or on the porch swing is pretty darn compelling too ;)
