Set on a private road in the forested hills just north of Pittsfield, our house welcomes you - in all seasons. Right in the heart of the Northeast’s best winter-sports, it is about 10 miles to the Killington and Pico ski resorts. Sugarbush, Okemo, and the famous Mad River Glen are all within easy reach for day trips. For golfers, Vermont’s #1 public golf course, Green Mountain National, is only ten minutes away, and in addition to Killington's own course, there are a surprising number of other courses within an hour’s drive.
The house is a comfortable and spacious (2,000+ sq.ft) three-bedroom contemporary split into four levels. It’s a perfect place to relax and have fun whether you’re on your own or with a group. With the large living area, the dining room and the den on different levels, the house caters to large numbers of people yet still affords privacy. While you soak up the heat of the big fieldstone fireplace upstairs, the gang could be watching TV or playing games downstairs.
The spacious deck on the back of the house features the most recent addiction - a 6 person spa/hot-tub for relaxing and soothing muscles after a day of hiking, biking, skiing, boarding, running... The deck adds summertime living space and is great for outdoor dining, with a gas grill and picnic table. There is also a balcony stretching across the front of the house that offers picturesque views of the forest and valley to the sound of the nearby brook.
The kitchen is big enough for family eat-in, and the dining room seats 10-12 comfortably. The two upper levels are exceptionally bright and airy with high cathedral ceilings and numerous skylights.
The two bedrooms on the lower middle level sleep 3 & 4 respectively and share a remodeled full bath. The master bedroom on the lower ground level sleeps 5 and has its own bathroom.
In addition to the beds in the bedrooms, there is a sofa-sleeper (double) in the den and another sofa-sleeper (single) the living area. When all the beds are full to capacity, the house can take a maximum of 15 people.
Though the ski areas and golf courses are probably the main attractions, there are a number of activities available right from the doorstep. Picturesque hiking/snowshoeing trails lead straight from the house into the Green Mountain National Forest. There are other trails nearby (no need to drive) that are suitable for cross country skiing or mountain biking. And if you’re into something even more vigorous, the Vermont snowmobile trail network (VAST) is accessible from less than a half mile away. The historic Appalachian Trail network as well as the Long Trail are also accessible from within a few miles away. In autumn, the area is a "leaf-peeper's" paradise (1st few weeks of October are best).
In addition to the above, there are facilities for tennis, racquetball, bungee jumping (yikes!), alpine slide, swimming, fishing streams, tubing, music, theater, shopping, and any number of other activities nearby.
Please visit the guest book/review section for impressions from previous guests. The property is again available for short-term rentals over summer and fall 2018 - and of course for the ’18-’19 ski season. Please click the calendar for available dates!
