About the property

4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, stone fireplace, wood stove.

This 2700 sq ft solid home is more than a ski house. It features a tall stone fireplace in a large living room with sectional couches, a cozy TV room with a wood stove + 2 down couches, 2 bedrooms downstairs, & master bedroom, office and loft upstairs. There is a full bathroom on each floor between the 2 bedrooms. The large open kitchen area was just redone and the floors sanded. It is a perfect entertaining-while-cooking area. Lots of outdoor deck space.

Located on a dead end dirt road in the middle of 400 acres of National Forest, the property also abuts the Catamount Trail- great for snowshoeing, hiking, and back-country x-c skiing.

It is only 10 minutes (4 miles) from Bromley & 20 minutes from Stratton. Both mountains can be seen from the house. Also, we have seen moose on our road!

Peru is home to a famous old fashioned country fair, named one of Vermont's Top 10 Events. There are 3 other houses 'in the neighborhood,' & we have 10 acre zoning. A safe place for kids to play. Peaceful, beautiful property with flowers & berry patches. Sleigh rides are available down the road. Manchester, with more restaurants and shopping, is a short 15 minute drive. The house is very clean. We also have the most delicious water in the world: our well is over 400 feet deep.

About Virginia Morgan

After raising two sons in Vermont, my husband & I moved overseas in 2010 for work reasons. (My husband worked at Stratton for 15 years). We also have a beach front home in Florida that we have rented out for years (#333960), so you can rent from us with confidence! We are looking for a renter to take the whole winter season. We have a caretaker. The kitchen was just remodeled.

Virginia Morgan purchased this house in 1995

Why Virginia Morgan chose Peru

This is a real house, not a flimsy condo. Even at 2700 sq feet, it is energy efficient. Its location is perfect for anyone who wants to get away. Fall foliage is beautiful. If you are a skier, you have two mountains to choose from: we are located in between Bromley & Stratton. Magic Mt. is also nearby. Okemo is about an hour away.

What makes this house unique

Sleigh rides are available just down the road. We have a beautiful fireplace.The Catamount Trail runs along the property line. Our town hosts the Peru Country Fair the last weekend of September. No drafts or cold spots in this house, nor dark basement bedrooms or low ceilings.

This is a very quiet road. We recommend having four wheel drive vehicles in the winter months.

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this house this past summer. The location is nice, right near Bromley ski resort and close to Manchester. The home is large and beautifully cared for. The owners really put in effort to make the place comfortable for renting guests. The downstairs has a huge open plan design with a fire place, a cozy TV room, and several bedrooms and bathrooms. The upstairs is lovely, several rooms, as well as a balcony type space where young kids can sleep. There is a large deck overlooking the woods and a hot-tub. The house was immaculate and had modern appliances. I would highly recommend this property!
