Property description

At 'Ridgeview' you can go to sleep to the flicker of a wood stove, wake up to sunshine streaming through tall windows onto honey-colored pine flooring, and watch from your deck as sunlight fills the river valley and plays across the ridge opposite.

Beautiful newer construction of 1000 square feet, two-and-a-half story "salt box" cottage on ten acres, three of which are open and level grounds. Tastefully furnished with fully equipped kitchen, two full baths, two wood stoves, washer/dryer and an additional refrigerator/freezer for additional food storage in the foyer. Ground floor includes private master bedroom with queen bed, bay window, full bath, and private deck. Open floor plan and vaulted ceiling on main level, with queen sleeper and a large view deck. Loft with full bed for additional sleeping accommodations. Great for couples, two couples, or small families. Discounts offered for singles and couples and families with small children.

Located in beautiful Newfane, which is very quiet and serene, but just minutes to skiing and snowboarding, swimming, canoeing, day lilies, golf, hiking, galleries, antiques, Marlboro Music Festival, Brattleboro shopping and restaurants.

Prices include linens, cable internet, WIFI, firewood and utilities except long distance phone. Once you've stayed, you'll want to come back!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: I'm a copywriter, editor, book consultant, a songwriter and a musician. I love being in Vermont. I write some of my best stuff here.

Why the Owner Chose Newfane, VT, USA:
I grew up in the area and still have family and many friends in Vermont. When the possibility arose of having a home here, it just seemed like the right thing.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Whenever someone says to me, 'Imagine that you are in your special spot, a place where you feel safe and comfortable, and where you feel a profound sense of belonging,' I think of the deck of this cottage. The peace that comes from staying here lasts me for weeks.
