Property description

Kingsley Mill Manor was the mill owner's house built in the mid 1800's. Total privacy is yours while vacationing in a Vermont wonderland, in all seasons. Just beyond the backyard, flows a river through our new private swimming area. The waterfall there can be viewed from the back deck and the newly created master bedroom suite. Music from the falls bathes the house, soothing the souls of all who experience it. In the backyard is an outdoor fire pit with wood to toast your marshmallows and warm your hearts.

Hiking, biking, cross country skiing, and snowmobile trails start at the back door and connect to the VAST statewide trail system. Lake Dunmore is less than 2 miles away, a five minute drive or less than an hour hike via the trails. Middlebury College is 10 minutes from the house.

Watch the sun rise over the mountain. Enjoy bonfires in the back yard fire pit. A wrap around porch with a hanging loveseat defines easy living, and our new four seaon screened porch offers privacy, river music, and a fireplace. The four season sun porch offers space for everyone to gather as does the farm table in the dining room.

There is plenty of lawn for large or small tents, plenty of parking and a large propane grill for outdoor eating. There is a large octagon picnic table in the backyard to feast upon. .

We understand the need for your pet to be included in your vacation. It is our pleasure to accept dogs and only ask that you curb them from getting on the furniture, crate them if you are going to leave them in the house alone, and please clean up after them.


Historical Experience: Our lovely vacation home provides a homey and spacious surrounding for a family gathering, reunions, weddings, or simply to get away from it all in pure Vermont privacy. Built over 175 years ago, you can witness the only standing mill in Salisbury. Please enjoy the multiple trails to other sites along the natural waterways. One of our trails now includes a footbridge over the falls to a private island for your fun and adventure.

Sandy beach, private swimming, suits optional.: With no visible neighbors bask in the sun on the banks of our sandy beach. This private swimming area is four feet deep, shallow enough for children, deep enough for real swimming. Adult supervision required for children. Jump into the water from the dam, sit under the waterfall or in our natural whirlpool and let your worries be washed away. There is a picnic table for a real beach experience. A paradise for all ages.

Our rebuilt, enlarged four season screened back porch overlooks the swimming area and the waterfall. We just installed an efficient and automatic fireplace/stove in the porch. Watch the snow fall in cozy, warm comfort. Great place for breakfast, barbecue, and sleeping.

Snowmobile and cross country ski heaven: Middlebury Snow Bowl is very close for downhill skiing, Killington less than an hour away. Literally from our back door you can cross country ski on challenging trails with no trail fees For snowmobilers it is heaven. Access to the VAST trail is direct from the backyard. There is a pond for Ice fishermen as well as a private trail to Lake Dunmore. Ice skating in the wild or at the rink just ten minutes away. Snow shoeing on our ski trails will take you through the woods and open land. From here you can roam the entire state of Vermont on the VAST trail system.

Car: Necessary

Kingsley Mill Manor is located a quarter mile from the village of Salisbury, just off Route 7. Take a left off Maple Street just past the post office and head north on Smead Road; we're the first house on the right outside of the village. Two miles further up the road is Lake Dunmore. Middlebury is ten miles north on Rt. 7, Burlington an hour north, Killington and Rutland are less than an hour south. Middlebury Snow Bowl is only minutes away. Lake Champlain is half an hour west. We have a hiking, mountain biking, snowmobile, and cross country skiing trail right out our back door. Lake Dunmore is only two miles through the woods. This trail is a branch of Vermont's VAST system of snow machine trails that covers the entire state. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are allowed on this trail system.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling. Perfect site for a wedding or reunion.

Golf: The Neshobe Country Club is less than 10 minutes away as are other courses in the area.

Ski: Downhill skiers can choose from Killington, Sugar Bush, or the Middlebury Snowbowl. The Snowbowl is minutes away, Killington and Sugar Bush less than an hour. Cross country skiers step out the back door onto a state wide system of trails. No trail fees!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Jalna and David met later in life in 2003. We were married in 2008. Our choice was to live up north at David's place and turn the house where Jalna raised her family into Kingsley Mill Manor. It's our favorite place to vacation. Our passion is to continue working on the Manor to make it ever more comfortable as a vacation rental. Recently we turned an attic into a beautiful master bedroom suite with 2 person Jacuzzi and a view from room of waterfall and mountains. Our current goal is to restore the last standing Kingsley mill, which is on the property and go green with water power from the river.

Why the Owner Chose Salisbury, VT, USA:
Kingsley Mill Manor has location, location, location. It's very private with no visible neighbors, yet a quarter mile from the village. A river runs through the property with two gorgeous swimming areas and a waterfall. Behind Kingsley the land is owned by the Middlebury Land Trust so will remain undeveloped. A trail runs from our back door to Lake Dunmore. This trail is part of the VAST system of snowmobile/cross country skiing trails that spans Vermont. It's also a gorgeous hike. The house is large, comfortable, with a long history. It is the perfect setup for a vacation rental, for family reunions, for ski teams, organizational meetings, weddings and just plain fun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the features of the property that I fell in love with was the foot bridge over the pond and above the falls. Walk across for multiple trails to old mill foundations and cross country ski trails in the winter
