Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 comfortably

Southwestern exposure with expansive views of Ascutney Mountain and the hills beyond provide peaceful and serene vistas. The sense of seclusion is enhanced by the location at the back end of a private drive, surrounded by five acres of wooded privacy and bordering dozens of acres of undeveloped forest. This rustic ranch house offers 3+ bedrooms and two recently renovated baths, providing a perfect place for relaxation after enjoying all the activities available in the Brownsville-Woodstock-West Windsor area: hiking, biking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, etc. A short drive down back roads and country lanes leads to Woodstock, the town green, art galleries and shops. You'll likely pass more horses than cars, as the Green Mountain Horse Association is along the way with access to miles and miles of trails. Several excellent country restaurants are located nearby and provides great opportunity to enjoy locally grown foods and regional craft-brewed beers.

Chances are, however, that you will want to stay and cook at home, in the fully-equipped chef's kitchen and the comfortable deck and barbecue provide a perfect place to prepare all the ingredients acquired during a day's foraging in the local markets.

This house is the getaway you've longer for; peaceful, secluded, comfortable and fully equipped, close enough to 'civilization' and the spas and health clubs of Woodstock and Quechee, and other nearby diversions, yet removed enough to allow for total decompression.

Perfect home with incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time staying at this home! My partner and I have a 7 mos. old baby and we stayed here for a week with our friends who have two young children. The layout was perfect -- a big open living room leading out to the deck gave everyone enough space to gather together, but the baby was able to nap in the back room undisturbed. Jennifer was warm, welcoming, and incredibly responsive. We're planning on returning next summer!

Beautiful warm home with excellent views

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for someone who wants to relax in front of an awesome wood burning fireplace, cook in a great kitchen, enjoy the views from the deck and be close to Windsor, Woodstock and surrounding areas. The living area is extremely comfortable and I actually could have stayed for longer. It was just a beautiful, warm house. Wood was well stocked, kitchen had all you needed and the DISH TV reception was great. Jennifer was prompt and great to deal with and even left a bottle of wine and chocolate in the kitchen and beautiful fresh flowers on the dining room table.We had a lovely time and so did our dog who took to lazing in front of the fireplace quite happily.

Couples weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend in West Windsor! We downhill and x-country skied Okemo, which is only 30 minutes from the house. The real wood fireplace was such a nice touch after a day out in the cold. The kitchen was stocked with tons of plates/pans/etc and condiments, coffee supplies, etc. It made it very easy to cook meals. Thanks again, we'll be back!

You're home as soon as you walk in the door!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed an October week in the Mountainview home. It was perfect for us. We had a toddler, and my 91 year old Mom. Both acclimated very well. All bedrooms on the same level, except for one that was down just two steps. It has a very open floor plan, so was great for little Oliver.

We visited many Vermont Fall Festivals...even took the long drive to Lincoln, NH one day through the White Mountains. Weather was great. Colors spectacular.

Nice touches in the house...kitchen supplies, Kleenex around the house, shampoos in the bathroom, and even some laundry detergent.

Plenty of firewood was left my Jenny, and a visit, to make sure we had all we needed.

Hope to come back again next fall, or sooner!
