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 2 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 4-5 hours or so, walked once daily and fed breakfast and dinner. We currently have a small (19 lb) mix, "Ginger," and a teeny-tiny (4 lb) teacup poodle, "Peanut." We walk them once a day, down the road a bit, and back, and Ginger and Peanut spend their summer days zooming around the yard.
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.
There are tons of things to do in the Mad River Valley and beyond. Please see this link for a description of some of the local activities available: s://
