About the Property
Rambling family second home sleeps 16. Outdoor fire/grill area and pond.
Family retreat located near Burlington, VT. While within 30 minutes of Burlington, skiing and many other attractions, Simpson's High Meadow is located at the end of an unpaved well maintained road with complete privacy. There is an outdoor cooking pavilion with outdoor sink and toilet (accessible during the warmer months). This is adjacent to the swimming pond and connects to a gas heated one room post and beam cabin with sleeping loft and fire place (sleeps 6). Connected to this cabin by a breeze way, is a newer post and beam home with master bedroom, twin bedroom, sleeping loft with queen and double beds, fold out couch in basement, and a full bath (10 sleeping spots total). The cabin next to main house is heated but suitable for 'sleeping only' on the coldest nights in winter. The main house is fully heated and insulated and can be kept toasty warm with cast iron gas stove. There are ample flat areas for camping if desired, along with room for volleyball, soccer, etc.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why Bolton, VT, USA:
This retreat is designed for families to relax together. In the warmer months parents can gather around the outdoor fireplace hang-out by the fire or on the dock while the kids play in the pond or the field, all within view. In the winter, the pond can be flooded for skating and there are steep hills nearby for the construction of 'toboggan runs,' while the younger kids stay warm by the outdoor fireplace near the cabin.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most comment on the beauty of the view, the layout of pond, cabin and home, and the privacy.
