About the property

3,000 Sq Ft Family Friendly Mountain Home, Sleeps Up To 16, & New Large Hot Tub!

Spectacular manchester home with stunning mountain views. Located at the end of a quiet dirt road, yet three minutes to the restaurants and outlet shops in downtown manchester. Near bromley and stratton. The acclaimed fine dining chantecleer restaurant is walking distance and rated one of the best in Vermont.

Soaring ceilings in the great room, woodstove, and built-in seating alcove by the fire. A large dining room with expandable table for 10. A spacious kitchen with newer black appliances, and jennair stove with indoor bbq grill. Also on the first floor is an attached 2-car garage with ski storage area, and a large mudroom with washer/dryer.

Three large bedrooms and huge sleeping loft with queen futon provide sleeping accommodations for 8-12 people. The first floor offers a private master suite with a queen bed, walk-in closet, and master bathroom with jacuzzi soaking tub. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms. The first is the second master bedroom, with a king bed and sitting area. The remaining bedroom offers two queen beds. There are 2 1/2 baths - one full on the first floor, one full bath on the second, and a half bathroom off the kitchen. A flat screen tv and playstation are located in the loft with movies and games, as well as a 5-in-1 foosball activity table. The loft also offers an array of children's toys and a train table.

Brand new finished lower level room adds 600 square feet of additional living space! Ten foot ceiling, four built-in queen bunk beds sleep eight extra individuals, huge 55" flat screen on the wall in the sitting area. 10'x8' quad glass door to allow for lots of natural light - it does not feel like a basement! Photos to come soon. This extra area may been rented for any period for an additional $150/night, plus $50 additional cleaning fee. If you do not have a large group you are not obligated to rent this room. The 3000 square foot home is large enough to sleep 8-10 without the need for the lower level sleeping area.

The home is very family friendly. There is a full sized crib in the first floor master bedroom walk-in closet. Stored upstairs in the king master bedroom closet is a toddler bed, bed rail, and child gate for the stairs. Located in the downstairs built-in closet in the dining room is a space-saver high chair and booster seat. In the great room are dozens of children's books and board games for all ages.

A new 7-person hot tub has been recently installed on the outdoor deck, five steps from the door. It has a waterfall, 50 jets, foot massagers, and underwater led lights. It is a high-end model with very efficient insulation, enabling us to keep it at a constant 100 degrees, even in the coldest weather. This means that you can come back from skiing or eating out, and hop right in! No waiting 2-3 hours for a typical hot tub to heat up to the right temperature. We have a 24/7 maintenance agreement with the spa company in case anything malfunctions, which means they will service it immediately if any problems are found.

Other amenities include: miles of trails out the front door for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. A teak wood outdoor table and chair set with seating for eight, and a newer bbq gas grill kept on the deck from may-november.

Lots of skiing opportunities:

Bromley - 10 min

Stratton - 20 min

Magic mtn - 25 min

Pico - 45 min

Killington - 50 min

Okemo - 50 min

Mt snow - 50 min

About Heather Smith

Our primary residence is in Connecticut, but we love our Vermont home just as much and try to upgrade it as we would our house back home. We have a very reliable caretaking company on a full-time contract, and a meticulous house cleaner who readies the home for us between rentals.

Heather Smith purchased this house in 2001

Why Heather Smith chose Vermont

Our home is very unique in that it offers a prime location close to all amenities but yet incredibly private. You won't find another home like it with the new 7-person hot tub and outstanding mountain views from many rooms in the home!

What makes this house unique

We take a deep breath and relax as soon as we walk in the front door. Maybe it's the soaring cathedral ceilings, or breathtaking mountain views, or the quiet sounds of nature but we feel a weight being lifted once we arrive at the home.

Amazing experience!!

  • 5 of 5

The whole group loved the house and the property overall!! We had a mix of both parents, teenagers and little kids and all had great positive impressions! The owner of the house is extremely nice and pleasant to work with. The downstairs play area is a must if you have kids! Really nice neighborhood, easy to get to and is close to major skiing mountains. Definitely recommend and would personally come back here again if ever in the area again!

Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had planned a weekend ski trip a couple of months ago. As a result of unexpected work scheduling conflicts, we had to cancel the trip. We were three days past the one month cancellation limit when we contacted Heather (owner) about our situation, so we were expecting to lose our deposit. She responded promptly and was very understanding. Long story short we got our deposit back without any issue and we will definitely book this place for our next trip!

My husband and I stayed at this property a few years ago and had the best time getting away. The house has everything that you need and is very cozy. We love the wood stove in the great room and the hot tub on the deck. We came back this year and brought some friends. The Hot tub easily seats six, and it is so nice to relax in the cool air and look at the stars. We took a hike to Lye Brook Falls which is only a short distance away and is a very good hike. This house is perfect for a friends getaway or for couples and the owners are very nice to deal with. We will definitely be back some day.

Amazing home and hot tub was the best!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing weekend at this beautiful home. The hot tub easily fit the six of us, and we enjoyed watching the stars and Luna moths while sitting outside each evening. The grill and outdoor table were nice to have. The mountain views from the home are gorgeous! We hiked each day at the trails located a 100 ft from the house at the end of the road. We also enjoyed the recommendation from the homeowner to visit Lye Brook Falls in town. The falls are specular! The owners also let us arrive early on the day of check in and stay late on Sunday because there were not any groups there right before or after us - all at no extra cost. A nice bonus. All around perfect weekend.

Great home that functions seamlessly!

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I spent Columbus Day weekend hanging out and relaxing in this great home, which perfectly provided for all of our needs. Whether enjoying the beautiful view from the wraparound deck, soaking in the crystal clear hot tub, hanging out in the great room (with the same beautiful view) and enjoying a warm fire in the wood stove, or grilling on the deck and kicking back for a group dinner in the cozy dining room, Heather's home fired on all cylinders. In addition, the home is very well located at the North end of town and convenient to all that Manchester has to offer. Restaurants, entertainment, hiking and golf were all only a short drive away, while the home maintains its nice and secluded feel (i.e. you are not on top of your neighbors). I would fully recommend a stay here!

Best weekend ever

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend at this beautiful secluded house this past weekend. We arrived in the dark at night to wake up to wonderful views in the morning. The house has so much to offer and is in excellent shape and the hot tub is out of this world. We cant wait to go back this fall with the family. One last thing, Heather was such a delight and pleasure to deal with and hope they continue to open there home for years to come.
