Property description

Welcome to Alder Brook House, your home away from home. Located in Essex Center, Alder Brook House is perfectly situated for enjoying the skiing, hiking and rural touring for which Vermont is famous as well as the shopping, nightlife, theaters and museums of Burlington, Vermont's largest city. Walk to restaurants and shopping in minutes or take a drive in the country that begins right at your front door. Perhaps you’d rather relax at home, cook a meal in the fully equipped kitchen and enjoy it on the spacious rear deck overlooking the comfortable yard and wooded back lot. Enjoy a movie in the sun room or take an evening stroll. Whatever unique Vermont experience you’re looking for, we hope you’ll come see us…and make yourself at home. Equipped with central air conditioning.
We also have a small flock of chickens on the property and fresh eggs are available for purchase. Let us know ahead and we'll have them in the fridge for you when you arrive!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sam and Fran have lived in Essex for about thirty years. Sam grew up in Vermont, Fran in New Jersey. We both love Vermont and think Essex is the perfect spot for us. We have the culture center of the college town of Burlington only minutes away but are still far enough outside to easily enjoy our passions of hiking, biking, boating and outdoor life. Sam's time is divided among the pursuits of writing, cooking and caring for our many guests at Alder Brook House while Franny works as a lab coordinator for the University of Vermont.

Why the Owner Chose Essex Town, Jericho, VT, USA:
When the house next door became available it seemed a natural for us. It gave us the opportunity to meet folks from other places and introduce them to the sights, sounds and tastes of our part of the world. With our proximity to theaters, restaurants, museums, skiing and 110 miles of Lake Champlain we have a lot to offer. Since our home is right next door we're easily available for suggestions, directions or advice to help our guests have the fullest experience possible. We love it here and we think you will too!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If I had to use one word to describe the benefits of Alder Brook House it would be variety. Within ten miles one finds dozens of excellent restaurants from burgers to Nepalese, Asian to French, Bosnian to Vietnamese to Italian, fast food to fine dining. Boating, swimming, fishing and sightseeing on Lake Champlain, Hiking in the Green Mountains, theaters, both live and film, three colleges and one university, a world renown museum and several antique shops. Just a bit farther and there are ski areas such as Stowe, Sugarbush and Bolton Valley as well as plenty of cross country opportunities. Organizing many full days of your favourite activities is a very simple thing. There's even a public pool right around the corner and fresh eggs in the backyard.
