Property description

Tucked away on a quiet lane, this quintessential farmhouse is surrounded by panoramic mountain views with a front porch perfect for sipping coffee and relaxing. Holland House is an authentic 1800's historic cape sited on a sun-filled four acre lot. To complete this idyllic setting, this mini-farm has a post and beam multi-level barn, potting shed, chicken house and wood shed. The house is surrounded by perennial gardens, apple and maple trees, berries, stone walls and graceful lawns.

There are five bedrooms and two baths that can accommodate up to eight guests. The hub of the house is a spacious renovated and fully-stocked eat-in kitchen with slate countertops and a restored wood cook stove that flows into a family room with a Rumford style fireplace.

The setting is ideal for a family retreat with rolling lawns for bocce, croquet, or volleyball. It is also the perfect writer's retreat with many cozy spots for inspiration. The night sky is spectacular and in June the fields are lit by fireflies.

The house is one mile from the town of Danby with a small country store and several swimming holes. This rural road is perfect for strolls or runs. This quaint town is under ten miles from the Vermont Horse Show in the summer and easily accessible to area mountains such as Bromley, Stratton, Okemo and Killington in the winter.

There is much to do in the area including fine restaurants, designer outlet shopping, Orvis fishing, the Southern Vermont Art Center, world-class golf, excellent summer theatre, and pastoral hikes. Nearby Emerald Lake State Park offers a beautiful lake for swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. We are a short drive to AT and Long Trail.

A reduced monthly rate is available upon request.
