The perfect getaway...for a week or two...or just a long weekend...any time of year!
Less than three hours from Boston. Less than five hours from New York City.
The perfect size group would be one, two or three adult couples with maybe up to five or six little ones.
Our oversized log cabin will accommodate up to seven couples or one or two families. While there are only two "conventional" bedrooms in this three level log home (one of which is part of a completely separate "mother-in-law apartment" on the lower level of the house), there is also a fully enclosed queen size private sleeping loft ... plus a tiny (but still queen size) room that we call "the cave" because the roof of the house slopes down into it...there is plenty of sleeping room for two adults or two little ones in "the cave"... but no standing up or dancing around...unless you happen to be under four feet tall (think "sleeping quarters" in the cabin of a boat...minus the motion of the ocean). Again, all four of these private spaces are queen size. There are also several not-so-private sleeping spaces ... everything from twin size built in "sleeping nooks" to full and queen size fold out futons on frames.
Our winter guests enjoy skiing at Okemo (seven miles away) or Killington, the largest ski area in the East (20 miles away). Bromley, Magic and Stratton are also well within striking distance. Cross-country skiing on prepared trails is available less than five miles from the house at Fox Run (a golf course in summer and fall), as well as on the innumerable prepared snowmobile trails that cris-cross our area. Even horse drawn sleigh rides are available.
Summer and fall vacationers have all that Vermont has to offer close at hand. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, tennis, golf, antique hunting and even Old-Time Locomotive Train rides are all nearby. Swimming , Boating and fishing are all to be found on Lake Ninevah. We throw in our two kayaks, our canoe and our fishing dinghy (all people powered) at no extra charge. Echo Lake, Lake Pauline and Lake Amhurst are all only a few minutes away.
