Walk through the door and feel the stress slide from your shoulders. This house was made for getting away from it all. Whether it’s a reunion of friends, a family gathering, or just a quiet weekend away, you have found your home away from home. Abundant windows and a spacious deck provide spectacular panoramic mountain views with a 25-mile horizon. As the sun sets, all your troubles fade away.
You can find the best of the Vermont experience within a half-hour radius. In winter, ski Okemo (16 miles away)…enjoy a sleigh ride from Kedron Valley Stables…go ice skating or cross-country skiing in Woodstock…snow shoe around the 16-acre property.
In summer, hike or drive up Mt. Ascutney…pick your own fruit at Wellwood Orchards…enjoy a carriage ride from Kedron Valley Stables…catch a show at the Weston Playhouse … tour the Path of Life Garden. Or travel a little further afield to the adventure parks at Bromley Mountain, the Ben & Jerry’s factory, Hanover, or Burlington.
In any season, explore the nooks and crannies of Woodstock’s general store FH Gillingham & Sons…find local art at the Walpole Artisans Cooperative, the art studios of Chester, or the VAULT (Visual Art Using Local Talent)…watch glass-blowing at Simon Pearce…see a play at Northern Stage in White River Junction…sample Vermont specialties at Grafton Village Cheese Co. and the Green Mountain Sugar House.
Not feeling that ambitious? Settle in front of the stone fireplace for wine and cheese and conversation, gather the family for a rousing game of Uno or Monopoly, or snuggle up on the sofa or the master bed to watch a movie.
If cooking is your favorite way to relax, this is your dream kitchen: well-equipped, with plenty of counter space, and open to the living room so you can chat while you cook. Roast a turkey with all the trimmings or whip up a batch of waffles for breakfast. Or just put the kettle on for tea and pop something in the microwave. It’s all easy here.
