The Grandchildren ...think they own Crossett Hill Lodge, and try to turn every room into a Playroom. Visitors may find their playhouses and snow forts on the property, and their toys hidden away inside the Lodge. Jim and Kathi have four (so far), all girls. Well-behaved children are welcome at the Lodge, and will find a collection of books, toys, games, skis, sleds, toboggan, and snowshoes to keep them busy. ...moreless

- Vermont ...is what America used to be: rolling hills, forest, fields, lakes and streams, small towns. Quiet, the skies full of stars at night, clean air, friendly neighbors. You’re in the middle of it all at Crossett Hill Lodge. The Forest ...surrounds Crossett Hill Lodge. Walk, ski, or snowshoe out the back along the old logging road for several miles, past the witch’s house. Hike the Long Trail, climb Camel’s Hump (the Lodge sits on its eastern slope), or just sit under a tree in the back yard. We have white pine, maple, ash, poplar, hemlock and cherry to choose from. Heady Topper ...is brewed nearby at the Alchemist. Some people actually like the way it tastes. Ben & Jerry’s ...make their ice cream a few miles away. Tour the factory, sample the flavors, and become a Chubby Hubby. ...moreless

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We're a recently retired couple. We've both been in education since the early 70's. Jim worked mostly in higher ed (Boston University and Hunter College) while Kathi focused on K-12 as a teacher and principal. Our current work involves consulting with schools and universities around the world as they seek to better use modern technologies in meaningful ways. We split our time between wintering at Crossett Hill Lodge in Duxbury, Vermont and Cedar Cove in Portsmouth, RI in the summer. Each property has two units, available for rentals. We sail out of Bristol throughout the summer on our 38' yawl (charters available!).
Why the Owner Chose Duxbury, VT, USA:
We lived in Williamstown, Vermont from 1972-1988. When we moved down country, we kept our rental property there. Then, our daughter and her husband bought a house in Duxbury so we did too. Dividing our time between mountains and beach is just about perfect for us! When we got it, the Lodge needed a complete renovation. We've spent the last three years building bathrooms, tearing down and refinishing thousands of feet of pine boards. They were very dark brown when we moved in. Each board was carefully removed, planed, varnished (with VT whey varnish) and put back up. The house has new windows, insulation, new kitchens, and so on. We both like doing renovations so it's been a great project for us. And, we love being a half mile from our daughter and her young family!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The lodge is out in the country, close to town, with skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking out the back door. Consider both units for your next family reunion! Opening our two units to renters has meant a steady stream of very interesting people since we started renting in the summer of 2015.
