Make yourself at home in our restored farmhouse in the Vermont countryside. The house is adjacent to acres of wooded hiking trails and nestled in the wilderness, and situated in the Mad River Valley, between two quaint, small towns. The area is an outdoor sports paradise, with tons of mountain biking, hiking, downhill and cross-country skiing nearby.
Our house is very quiet and secluded, sitting on 66 acres, which are mostly wooded. There are walking/XC ski/snowshoeing trails surrounding the property, and a large meadow with a wonderful view just a 10-minute walk through the woods. There is a hot tub outside for use year-round. The towns of Waitsfield and Waterbury are each just 15 minutes away, with great restaurants, shopping and fun activities.
We have 3 small dogs, 5 sheep and a cow, but only the dogs will need much of your attention. The dogs need to be let out every few hours or so, and fed breakfast and dinner. Bebe, our oldest dog, is somewhat frail, and loves to sit on your lap and get TLC, but that is the only special need.
The farm animals are very low-maintenance: they have a feeder with a constant supply of hay, so water just needs to be checked/refilled once per day.
Late April is not the most fabulous time of year to be in Vermont– the snow is pretty much gone, and spring is just starting to get underway– but it should be a nice time of year for walks in the woods, and curling up with a book.
