About the Property

A charming renovated cape for a peaceful and relaxing escape.

Orchard Cottage was lovingly restored a couple of years ago to a very high standard. It is decorated in soothing autumnal tones with very comfortable beds and lots of locally sourced antiques and artwork. It sits on a 20+ acre family estate that backs on to the wild and untouched Roxbury Mountain. Our main family home and cottage sit further up the hill affording you with complete privacy.

Orchard Cottage has 2 bedrooms and a den with pull out sofa. It comfortably sleeps 6 people.

This is a year round retreat with fabulous skiing in the winter and endless outdoor activities in the summer. You can leave the house and be on the slopes at Sugarbush in 20 minutes or if you prefer cross country skiing there are 2 great locations 5 minutes drive away. For a little variety you can also ski Mad River Glen or even Mount Mansfield in Stowe. If you prefer to snowshoe, you can go right from the house and up into the woods on Roxbury Mountain. In the summertime you can hike the Long trail, tube down the Mad River, glide at Sugarbush airport, swim in the numerous swimming holes and even paddle board or kayak on Blueberry Lake. As a family with young children, the Mad River Valley is full of endless possibilities. Equally, this hillside retreat would be perfect for a couple hoping for a romantic escape or some space and time to decompress. If you're a serious foodie, you will find everything you need in the valley. 3 minutes away is the excellent East Warren Community Market. Every Saturday during the summer you can pick up all of your wonderful local produce at the Waitsfield Farmer's market and Sweet Pea Natural Foods in Waitsfield will stock all of the healthy groceries you need. There are an abundance of great restaurants including The Pitcher Inn, Flatbread Pizza, The Common Man, Peasant and Mint. The Warren Store is a must for lunch!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Having originally purchased the main house next door, we jumped at the chance to buy Orchard Cottage when it became available. With a growing family, we needed space for all of our friends and family to congregate during the holidays. We live overseas but visit several times a year to ski, play in the Mad River, hike in the Green Mountains and be at peace in this really beautiful spot.

Why the Owner Chose Warren, VT, USA:
Orchard Cottage is nestled into a ridge on Roxbury Mountain in the middle of the Green Mountains. Set below the main house beyond the apple treehouse and the orchard. It has it's own driveway and is completely private.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cottage would be perfect for a small family or a couple looking for a unique Vermont getaway. The setting is very peaceful and romantic and the furnishings extremely luxurious. Whether you plan an active break taking advantage of all that the valley has to offer or you are seeking a cozy retreat to relax and watch the foliage change or the wild turkeys and deer roaming through the orchard, Orchard Cottage can supply all of that! Old Roxbury Road is a private road and a 4WD is a must even though it is plowed continually throughout the winter.
