Property description


The dramatic 40 acre compound feels reminiscent of an exclusive New England lodge. The grounds are park-like, designed by landscape architect Richard Haag, with vistas across lush meadows, soaring trees and mossy knolls. When walking on trails weaving through the property you’ll come upon a children’s playhouse, two private lakes, cabins, and a guest house. The delight of discovery is not limited to the outdoors; you’ll find the professionally designed interiors of each residence and sleeping cabins to be elegant, whimsical, rustic, and perfectly characterized. Each item of furnishing and décor, including fine antiques, thematic collectibles, and vintage finds has been carefully crafted and artfully placed for maximum comfort and visual interest.

The primary residence is a grand Barn constructed of two historic 1800’s-era Vermont barns that were salvaged, transported, and reassembled into a fabulous Northwest country residence. The integrity of form and function will please the most discriminating; the center pitch soars to 26 feet, supported by solid timber posts, floors are original wide plank, the alcoves and loft create spaces of both volume and coziness. On opposite sides of the structure, huge doors open onto broad blue stone terraces. On one flank is an enormous hot tub and on the other a BBQ and several teak tables for outdoor dining. In the quadrants of the soaring Barn you'll find a vintage billiard table, game table, big rock-faced fireplace, and the BowWow Bar complete with refrigerator, dishwasher, and TV. (Sorry, Bowser, despite the name, the owner’s dogs are the only ones welcome here.)

The kitchen and dining spaces are warm and beautiful, featuring a huge wooden prep island, the best of contemporary appliances, and a large table with seating for 10. Also on the main level are a powder room, mudroom, and lovely bedroom with queen bed, sitting area, and en-suite bath with soaking tub and shower. Upstairs in the loft, there’s a second TV, Foosball table, second powder room, & sofa-bed. Two elevated sleeping spaces with futon mattresses are reached by climbing a wall mounted ladder (great for older children and spry adults.) Most of the televisions do not have TV reception at this property, and are for playing movies only.

Extended family and friends will love heading off to sleep in their own private guesthouse or cabins located in other sections of the compound. Just across from the Barn is The Paddock, a glamorous equestrian-themed bunkhouse. The Paddock contains a large bathroom, two queen beds (each within an alcove and draped for partial-privacy) and two sets of bunks built along one wall. The Paddock is perfect for a smaller family or children with nanny.

Within a ten minute walk are two attached well-appointed lakeside cabins and a detached bathroom/bathhouse. One cabin contains a queen bed, the second contains two twins. (The cabins can also be reached by car.) NOTE THAT USE OF OWNER'S WATERCRAFT AND SWIMMING IN THE LAKES IS PROHIBITED.

Up to four more guests will enjoy maximum privacy in a fully equipped guesthouse perched on a knoll at the further side of the property. This second residence features a wrap-around terrace overlooking a private lake, full kitchen, living area, laundry, and powder room. Two bedrooms and a full bath are on the upper level; one bedroom contains a queen size bed, the second contains two twin beds. The Guest House is a 15 minute walk through the grounds from the barn, but also has a direct gated entry. (The Guest House may be rented individually during the Quiet Season. Reference our Vacation Rental Property #218.)

There is an additional $125 charge/pp/night if 14+ guests are accepted. Please call our office for booking information. The owners are frequently in residence so the availability calendar is not always up to date.</
