About the property

Country House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5 adults plus up to 4 kids)

Discover a peaceful and private retreat just 20 miles from Mt. Snow and 10 miles south of Wilmington at this beautiful post and beam home located high on a hill with a beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding Green Mountains of Vermont.

Come here to enjoy a genuine and rustic Vermont experience. Whether you are skiing Mount Snow, leaf peeping, exploring Brattleboro, antiquing, writing or painting ... we invite you to experience this special and unique setting.

This twenty-five acre property includes brooks, stone walls, woodlands, wildlife and open vistas. A wrap-around deck, screened porch and windows galore all allow you to enjoy the views. Seasonal furniture and a gas grill are provided on the deck.

A wood-burning stove, which is inserted into a floor to ceiling brick chimney, will offer warmth and cheer by a glowing fire. Free, unlimited split and stacked wood provided!

Plenty of comfortable space to spread out and relax with your family. House sleeps five adults in the three bedrooms. Up to 4 children may be accommodated in the basement. Roll away bed and crib available. Master suite has a queen, 2nd bedroom a queen, and 3rd bedroom a twin.

Master suite is upstairs, off the loft, and includes a stargazing skylight window over the queen size bed, a private balcony with beautiful views, and attached master bath with large jacuzzi tub and separate step-in shower.

Keep in touch, if need be, with fast WIFI, land line and unlimited domestic long distance. Unlike many remote retreats your cell phone will most likely have reception here on top of the hills. Direct TV, Netflix, DVR, and high quality stereo system provided.

This is as close to perfect seclusion as you can find, and still be conveniently located. Easily accessible to Mt Snow, Brattleboro, and Bennington. Quaint and historic Jacksonville VT is just 3 miles away and home of the favorite Jacksonville General Store where you will find local produce, custom butcher shop, Vermont maple syrup, Vermont cheeses and a selection of wines. Lake Whitingham (Harriman Reservoir) which offers beautiful beaches, boating ( including canoeing and kayaking) is only five miles north of Jacksonville.

It all adds up to a perfect combination of peace and quiet and accessibility in a comfortable home in a beautiful setting. Bring your children and your dog and have a family adventure, or make it your romantic hideaway, a secluded spot for artistic pursuits or a launching pad for your athletic interests.

You will feel at home away from home at Almost Heaven.

Perfect ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent our NYE at this amazing property. We loved the fact that the house is kind of secluded and all you see around is only snow covered trees. The house is very clean and cozy, it has plenty of cookware, and we definitely enjoyed the master bedroom Jacuzzi. I should mention that our favorite spot was rocking chairs next to the fireplace, perfect setup for winter evening to enjoy glass of wine.

The house is very conveniently located, only 30 min drive to Mt. Snow. Also, the owner, Chris, is very polite and helpful, he replied to any question or request within an hour. We were very pleased with our stay, wish we had spend there more than just a weekend.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home. Was exactly as described. Home is perfectly secluded with breathtaking grounds. Home's interior is literally picture perfect and charming. Anything and everything you will need during your stay has been thought of and is inside; from firewood to baking sheets, the owners have thought of everything and stocked the home. The worst part of our stay was having to pack up and head home.

What a nice, calming weekend - we hated to see it go by so fast. The dogs, Casey and Logan loved the many acres of land -Dave and I spent quite a bit of time walking your fabulous back yard! The interior was charming, rustic and soooo comfortable. I fell in love with the pictures months ago when I booked this place for us. And I fell in love with it all over when we finally arrived here. We would love to come back to your place next year - I don't whether Casey, the golden retriever will be able to make it - he will be 12 in November and is showing signs of arthritis - unfortunately, very common in that breed. The meds and joint supplements will only take him so far. But, he had a great time this weekend. So. I'm thankful for that. As for Dave and I, are not so young either!! Retirement is just around the corner. Maybe we can find piece of Heaven just like yours one day. Many thanks from Dave, I, Casey and Logan.

Gorgeous and secluded

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 1 year old, our dog, and myself spent four wonderful nights relaxing at this gorgeous property.

It felt very secluded and totally private, yet it was 20 min to a grocery store - which is a plus if you have young kids.

My favorite part of the stay was taking a bubble bath in the giant tub at sunset.

Beautiful views. Comfy bed. Amazing property.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for three night in February. The master bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! The house had everything we needed including firewood. The towels were fluffy and the bathrooms were especially clean. The house does have a lot of "stuff" books, toys, jackets, hats, lamps, knick knacks... This is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your preferences. We had a great time and would stay there again.

Excellent Accommodations in Mt Snow Area!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay while on a weekend trip for snowboarding at Mt Snow. We also wanted somewhere we could bring our family dog, who is like a member of the family, along for the weekend. This was the perfect place! This house is warm and welcoming and the space is laid out so attractively. The aesthetics of the post-and-beam construction are a pleasure for the eye, and the design of the house allows for lots of privacy while still having a very open floor plan. The kitchen is equipped with everything one could need to prepare any type of meal. We came with two adults and two children, but the additional beds in the basement area would have allowed the house to easily accommodate four more people very comfortably. The house was very clean and well-maintained. The owner, Chris, was amazing! His communication was excellent both before and during our stay, and he was very kind in accommodating all of our needs. The house is about 30 minutes away from Mt Snow, but the drive is along a beautiful, scenic road and very enjoyable--totally worth it to have so much more space and privacy for the same amount one might pay for a tiny hotel room (that is not dog-friendly) right by the mountain. The house is also set out in the country on a network of rarely used roads, so one might go for a nice walk from the house. I give this house five stars and definitely hope to stay here again!
