Property description

Beautifully restored 200-year-old farmhouse in the Waitsfield Common Historic District. Features original pine floors, beamed ceilings, restored woodwork, a vintage fully functioning Glenwood gas stove, sturdy characterful antiques and modern amenities. It's charming, quiet, warm, and cozy.

Located minutes from Waitsfield in a rural meadow location on one of the most beautiful roads in the world - treasured for walking and biking. There are enchanting perennial gardens, an organic vegetable garden, an old apple orchard in the back, and great views of the mountains across the meadow.

A short drive to top ski resorts; minutes to the quaint historic town of Waitsfield well-known for its craft shops, antique stores, terrific restaurants and cozy coffee shops; cross-country skiing and snowshoeing out the back door.

Also a lovely rental for wedding parties and guests; just minutes away from the Skinner Barn and the Round Barn, favorite wedding venues in the valley.

This home is an extraordinary place for a quiet retreat or home base for the wide range of activities the Mad River Valley offers in all seasons.
