Our beautiful spacious house is custom built in a style of VT chalet and is situated high in the heart of Green Mountains. It is full of light and completely quiet and peaceful. It is located only 12 minutes from Okemo ( ranked within top 3 North Eastern family ski resorts, we vouch for the ski school, which is excellent!), 10 minutes from Jackson Gore and 20 minutes from Killington. It is also only 5 min away from the Echo lake state park with a beach and boat access and so it's a great year-round destination. In the summer and fall Jackson Gore and Bromley mountains have excellent challenge courses for kids and adults (ropes, ladders and zip-lines suspended in the trees) as well as adventure parks. There are also great pick-your-own farms within 30 min drive where you can pick raspberries, red and black currants, apples, plums, sour cherries, etc. Some great restaurants as well as Long Trail brewery are within 15 min of driving.
The house comfortably accommodates 2 families/ 8 people in 4 bedrooms and has enough beds for 10 people . The maximum occupancy is 12 people ( there are two additional queen sleeper sofas in the living rooms. Please note there is an additional fee of $35/per adult/nt above 10 adults; kids are free). Depending on the number of children it can probably accommodate up to 3 families at once, although there are only two bedrooms with queen size beds. The house has a sauna, is equipped with Wi-Fi, and two TVs including a 60'' flat-screen TV. There is an outside porch with a grill. The house has a full complement of blankets, pillows and towels and has almost everything that a chef may need.
The house layout is as follows:
-Main level: living room with a fireplace and queen sleeper sofa + 1 bdrm with 2 twin beds+ bathroom
-2nd level: master bdrm with a queen bed and jacuzzi + guest bdrm with a queen bed and bathroom
-3rd level: immediately above the master bedroom and communicating with it is a loft with two twin beds ( ideal for kids from the same family that uses the master bedroom)
-Lowest level ( has it's own exit to outside above ground, so a full level and not a basement): 2nd living room with a fireplace,
60'' TV and a sleeper sofa + another bedroom with 2 twin beds and a separate bathroom. This whole level may be used by another family.
Also there is a sauna with shower on the lower level along with a laundry room.
The kitchen is fully stocked and sophisticated chefs will probably find everything they may need.
For additional fee, paid directly to Hawk resort, there is access to an indoor and outdoor swimming pools and exercise room. Rental of ice skates is available if the pond freezes at the resort. Tubing and sledding at the resort are also available and there are tennis courts for use. There is a restaurant at Hawk, open on weekends. There are also extensive hiking trails on the premises of the resort.
The house is ideal for 2 or 3 families of friends and for large families celebrating holidays together. There is a playpen and two high chairs that can be used. We maintain a smoke-free environment. Unfortunately, due to allergies, NO pets are allowed, even small or well-behaved ones. We love our second home and hope that you will enjoy it as much!
