Property description

On 22 acres of quiet pasture, the gracious and comfortable Victorian Manor provides a relaxing and private atmosphere in which to gather families and groups of friends numbering as few as 6 or as many as 16 in this updated historical farmhouse. Fellowship in well-furnished and well-priced accommodations, in the warmth of its sauna or sit-down dining room/kitchen. Sleep peacefully in the spacious 6 bedrooms, each enjoying its own private bath. Play parlor games inside, yard games outside, or just enjoy the magnificent mountain/river-valley views from the backyard or front porch.
Recreation possibilities abound. In winter or summer, drive 5 minutes to ski (Nordic & downhill) or snow-board at Jay Peak's 4-season Resort whose lifts and glades enable nonstop activity, thanks to the absence of lift lines and crowded slopes. Discounted lift tickets should be figured into your savings. Golf the magnificent championship 18-hole golf course in summer. Enjoy!!!

Year-Round Recreation: Record-breaking annual snowfall (exceeding Stowe by an average of 100 inches annually) and the East’s only aerial tramway are unparalleled by any nearby area. Ride snowmobiles to your heart’s content on adjacent VAST trails. A drive of 20-30 minutes to the east leads to Newport and Lake Memphremagog for ice skating and ice fishing;or, in summer, boating, water skiing, fishing and swimming. Right across the Canadian border (3 miles away) one finds similar activities at Owl’s Head, as well.

Beauty And Enjoyment All Around!: Streams and rivers lace the surrounding countryside for fishing, boating and swimming. Scenic roadways offer bike and motorcycle jaunts. Some half-dozen golf courses, within a 6 to 30-minute drive serve varying abilities, not the least of which is the recently developed championship course at Jay Peak designed by Canadian Graham Cooke, enjoyable according to varying levels of skill.

Just Relax - Economically And Pleasantly: If your interest is antiquing, country and craft fairs, live music or theatrical productions, art shows, horseback riding, or simply dining in a pleasant restaurant, all are available within reasonable distance. Victorian Manor is conveniently accessible to three nearby towns – Troy, North Troy, and Jay, Vermont – all only about 3 miles away where one finds groceries, banking, dining, church services, gift shops, etc. Join us in making Victorian Manor your “home away from home.” Once settled in, you’ll be happy you did and will return often, as others do, to enjoy “repeaters” lodging discounts and promotions.

On a regular Vermont map our home is easy to locate: It's the last house on the left (going north) before the T-intersection of 'the mountain road' - Route 242 - with VT Route 101, halfway between Troy and North Troy, VT.

Other Activities: Newest of the most popular activities: The NEW indoor-outdoor waterpark is attracting GREAT attention!

Golf: Enjoyable And Challenging courses nearby are: Jay Peak Ski/Summer Resort, Newport, Orleans, Richford, Enosburg Falls, Owls Head, and others.

Ski & Snowboarding: Jay Peak offers the only aerial tramway in the East, record annual snowfalls, outstanding glades, rarely ever any lift lines (even with a full parking lot!), an outstanding ski school (adults and children), a separate area for snowboarding -- all this and Nordic ski trails as well! Annual snowfall often exceeds all other areas in the U. S., and sometimes even Canada!

Snowmobiling on adjacent VAST trails.

Dairy and Maple Sugar Farm visits (at milking time).


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We learned to ski at Jay in 1965 and have loved skiing there ever since. Huge developments over the years provide a great family place with terrific instruction and, even when huge crowds are there, with cars out to the highway, those skiing are in lines which move quickly and keep one moving and having a great time for the whole day. What, in other places, would be a slow-moving lift line, the crowds literally disappear into the woods (glades) and quickly down the trails for their next lift ride.

Why the Owner Chose North Troy, Troy, VT, USA:
It's unique, with large rooms, and comfortable. Facilities are updated to provide warmth and reliability and, knowing of guests' preferences, the owners do their best to respond positively to requests and providing for a good time for all.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Discounts on mountain facilities through THIS rental agent which are unavailable from others.
