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.
