Anytime of the year, the house is available for two day, weekly or monthly stays. It sits on a tranquil, 27 acre former farm and is conveniently located just six miles from both Hunter and Windham mountains. Your country escape for the skier, golfer, trout fishermen or growing family awaits you. There are fields, walking trails, mountain views and an abundance of wildlife for one to see on the property. If skiing is your thing, this rental is perfect for the entire family.
Outside of the ski season, there are three nearby golf courses so all golfers, bring your clubs! If you simply prefer to unwind, the over-sized country porch is perfect for relaxing and entertaining guests. Fun filled days transition to late afternoons and early evening on the beautiful porch, enjoying a cocktail and great food. Wildlife such as turkey, deer, rabbits and ducks can be appreciated by all. The rambling brook makes for a great night's sleep or for a carefree nap stream side or on the porch. Visit during the winter months and enjoy sitting around the wood stove with that hot cup of chocolate. This makes for a perfect break from a cold winter's day and fun in the snow.
The house is an 1856 post and beam farmhouse typical of the era. It has been fully restored with special attention to period details.
The first floor consists of a mud room with an oak bench and brick flooring, a lovely country kitchen, a large living room with wood burning stove, a comfortably sized dining room and a small additional bedroom. Additionally, a washer / dryer room, for those extended stays, is located right off the first floor bathroom. Wide plank floors throughout and the wood beams in the house have been fully exposed for that pure colonial look. The bathroom has a large, claw foot tub from the early 20th century that has been restored. It makes for that perfect, hot bath with some rich, sea salts to relax and rejuvenate one's inner self.
The second floor consists of three bedrooms that overlook the apple trees and fields of the property. A second floor bathroom is a must and this one has been nicely renovated. The house sleeps eight comfortably so it can be shared by one large family or two smaller families.
