Property description

Welcome! Our renovated 180 year-old farmhouse is nestled in a small valley that lies under majestic Mt. Mansfield. Surrounded by farmland and knock-your-socks-off mountain views, our home is a place of peace and serenity that overlooks acres of pastures, streams, and woodlands.

Unlike other old farmhouses that have small rooms and confined spaces, our home has an open floor plan with 8 ft. ceilings, creating an atmosphere that is light and airy. Decorated in warm, earthy colors, each room has its own charm and character.

Three bedrooms have queen-size beds, another bedroom has a double bed, and the fifth bedroom has 2 twin beds. On the second floor the master bedroom has a private (though small!) full bath, and the other 3 bedrooms share a full bathroom (with bathtub and shower). The guest room on the first floor is adjacent with the downstairs bathroom, which has a claw-foot bathtub but no shower. Large floor areas can accommodate air mattresses and sleeping bags (we have 2 futon mattresses). The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for the most accomplished cook to prepare gourmet feasts.

Underhill and the surrounding region have an amazing array of opportunities for everyone’s taste. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast and like your days to be filled with adventure and adrenaline, there’s a whole network of trails right outside our back door for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing in the winter, and hiking/walking and mountain biking in the spring, summer and fall. There is a lovely, easy-walking river trail close by with waist deep swimming holes stocked with trout every spring. But if you’re the type that just likes to sit quietly and enjoy the peace and quiet, you will be overwhelmed by the tranquil beauty of majestic Mount Mansfield from our deck, or scenic pasture views (often with cows parading past) from our cool and shady covered porch.

At Smuggler’s Notch Ski Resort (only 8 miles away), there are groomed cross-country ski trails and a skating arena as well as excellent downhill skiing and snow-boarding. If you’d like to try other ski areas, Stowe is just 45 minutes away (or you can ski to it from Smuggs) and Jay Peak is the same distance. If you are very adventurous, try ice climbing up in the Notch! A variety of trails lead up to Mount Mansfield's summit, easily accessible in winter or summer from our house. In the summer, Smuggler's Resort boasts a top-rated Frisbee golf course, mountain biking and various other activities. They also partner with Arbor Trek for zip lining through forests along with a challenging obstacle course. If you are a water person, try paddling the Lamoille River. Vermont Canoe and Kayak offers great options for half and full day paddles and tours.

For those looking for more cultural activities, there is no lack of beautiful vistas for the photographer and artist. There are multitudes of antique shops, art galleries, farmer markets, restaurants, theatres, and shops all within a 45 minutes radius that includes the resort town of Stowe and Vermont’s largest city, Burlington.

After your day’s activities, come back home and relax in our home that is warm and cozy in the winter, and cool and spacious in the summer. Wander the perennial and vegetable gardens or take a walk down the road to the local organic produce farm to purchase fresh vegetables for your dinner. Either season, stretch your tired muscles in our yoga studio, a renovated family room that now provides a wonderful space with polished wide pine floors for yoga and meditation practice.

Our home is the perfect place for your Vermont vacation. It is also the perfect setting for celebrations like weddings, reunions and graduations. Invite your family, friends and relatives to stay here with you. There are plenty of businesses in the area that would be happy to help you with catering and other services you might need. Contact us with any questions or concerns you have. We’ll be glad to help!
