This is an unique home that is located on 59 acres of land. It has been in the same family for generations and was first used as a summer home and then winterized about 40 years ago.
The large wrap around porch has an amazing view of the White Mountains and you can sit there for hours just listening to the stream - looking out at the mountains. One of the wonderful features about this home is that you are completely surrounded by nature while you are there but just a few minutes away you have great restaurants, shopping, golf, skiing and one of the best Farmer's Markets in the area to do your food shopping. As well nearby is the Village of Barnard where there is a State Park on Silver Lake. And there is The Barnard General Store for a great breakfast! Max's Tavern at the Barnard Inn is a wonderful place to have dinner they also have a formal Dining room.The house is comfortable and cozy for two or 14. During the winter months 4 wheel or all wheel drive is needed to get to the house.
First floor: The first floor has a Master bedroom with a full bath and there is an adjoining bedroom with two twin beds, called the 'toe to toe' room. Off these rooms is the large Living room with lots of comfortable places to curl up in front of the fireplace. It has two large window seats, couch, chaise lounge, rocking chair, etc. The next room used to be the formal Dinning room but is now the Family/TV room, it too has lots of seating space, with another fireplace. Then there is the eat in Kitchen that is fully equipped and has a table that can seat 10+. There is a shed off the kitchen that has a BBQ grill. You are totally under cover while at the grill.
On the second floor there are three Bedrooms with Queen size beds and three Bathrooms. One being a suite with it's own bath. One has an open room just off it with a child's bed. Then there is the Nursery with two twin beds and another bedroom with twin beds. The upper bathrooms have old claw foot tubes with hand held showers. We are working on getting a real shower installed upstairs. All bedrooms are nicely decorated, and have lots of closet space. Also on the the second floor is the laundry room. The house is like stepping back into a time less complicated but with all the modern comforts. It is the perfect place to spend time with your family and friends in a relaxed environment.
Caretakers live on the road and are available if needed.
At one time this whole road was owned by family members. They all came here to get away for the summers in beautiful Vermont. There is a private 100 year old Fishing club at the end of the dead end road. This is a true family place. Lots of room to all be together and room to be off on your own. The Appalachian Trail is with in walking distance and off that is a great hike up to Lucy's Lookout where you get a 360 degree view of Vermont and New Hampshire.

About: This house has never been out of the family. At one time the whole hill was family members and there were cousins running back and forth from house to house. It was used mainly in the summer to begin with and then they but in a furnace. The first furnace used wood and fit 4ft long logs. We have done our best to preserve the original charm while adding modern conveniences. WE hope you will enjoy our home.
Why Woodstock, VT, USA:
This house is a special place for family gathering. There is enough room to all be together and private space to be apart . The wrap around Porch is a great gathering place rain or shine and the view looking into the white Mts is breathtaking. We have had families with just two children rent the house and they say it always feels cozy, never to big. So large or small group it feels just right
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beauty of this home is that it makes you step back to a time when things were simpler . Families spent dinners together and time hanging out on the porch while the kids play in the yard and discover things about nature. If you are lucky, as some have been, you might see a moose or black bear crossing in the lower field. Nothing to fear they are just passing thru. I walk in the woods all the time with my dog and never have a problem.
