Property description

After a day of skiing or hiking outdoors, retreat to this secluded, elegant home on Shepard Brook to relax and enjoy the sound of water music and wind through the trees. It features an exquisite master suite with king bed and a Jacuzzi tub. There are three bedrooms in the main house. Two rooms have queen beds, and the third has two twin beds. The kitchen and dining area are warmed with a wood stove.

Our home is just 20 minutes from Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, yet it feels light years away from the hustle and bustle of the resort. Waitsfield restaurants, shops and activities offered in the Mad River Valley are 10 minutes away, and the trailhead for access to the Long Trail and the spectacular views from Burnt Rock Mountain is just 2.5 miles west.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Peter and Susan live in the Boston area. Susan is an elementary school literacy specialist, and Peter is an executive coach and medical device marketing leader. We have two adult sons, three dogs, and share our home with Susan's elderly mother. We love hiking, skiing and paddling.

Why the Owner Chose Moretown, VT, USA:
We recently purchased this property and intend to retire here in a few years. We chose the Mad River Valley because, well, the 'vibe' here is fantastic! We fell in love with this home's exquisite setting first, and the practical beauty of its award-winning architectural design sealed the deal for us. For our family, it is a place to escape, recharge, and share our love of the outdoors with family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Year-round brook music makes this place really special. You can catch brook trout right off the back patio when it's warm, and the happy babble of the water is a year-round delight!
