House is on Plymouth Notch (formerly Roundtop Mountain), a private ski area only open on weekends. If you are skiing Plymouth Notch as a member or guest, it is an easy walk to the trail - literally across the street. Killington and Okemo are about 10 miles away. Farm & Wilderness Camp is a few miles up Rt. 100.
House is on Plymouth Notch (formerly Roundtop Mountain), a private ski area only open on weekends. If you are skiing Plymouth Notch as a member or guest, it is an easy walk to the trail - literally across the street. Killington and Okemo are each about 9 miles away. Townhouse (looks like a condo) has three small bedrooms downstairs, plus a bathroom with a tub. Upstairs is a slightly larger bedroom, a kitchen/dining/living area, a bathroom with a shower and a deck. The road deadends at the top of the mountain so traffic is minimal, views are nice and the area is quiet. Lots of lakes, rivers and streams nearby, Outdoor tennis court, and it is always available. Short walk to the Catamount Trail.
That's the good. It was built around 1970, if you know what that means in ski condo archeticture. We bought it several years ago and have been working hard updating and improving. It is definitely still a work in progress. All the dark paneling, shag rugs and avocado appliances are gone. There is a Vermont Castings woodstove in the living/dining area and the bathrooms have heated tile floors. The floors upstairs are new maple; downstairs is carpeted.
The appliances in the kitchen are good but the cabinets and countertops are not. (Well,half the cabinets are now new. Still got the old countertops, but soon...)
There is a washer and dryer, linens in the closet and staples in the kitchen.
I know this is a B&B website, but this place is really just a house rental. So you'll have to cook your own breakfast and no cookies in the afternoon, but you won't have to see me there either.
Skiing, hiking, biking, swimming, peace and quiet.

Almost not at all. I'll answer emails and phone calls right away. If there's a problem or a question, I'll take care of it. Otherwise you won't see or hear from me.
Calvin Coolidge was born here on the 4th of July, lived much of his life here, was inaugurated here, died and was buried here. There is a very modest museum, and the post office run by his mother is where we still get our mail. His father's cheese business is still making cheese.
Have fun. Pots and pans. dishes and utensils in the kitchen. Flour, sugar, salt and a few spices too. Linens on the beds and towels in the bathrooms. Parking is somewhat limited, so the fewer cars you bring the better. The home is about a mile drive uphill from Rt. 100. If it is snowing hard, and the plow has not just been through, it can be slippery without four wheel drive. (I don't have four wheel drive, and I have never gotten stuck, but have come close.). Well behaved pets okay with $100 damage deposit. No smoking in the house. Have fun.
We bought the house mainly to use, but find we use it much less than we expected. So we are renting it as well, which has been a very pleasant experience. I've liked everyone who has rented it, and I think they have all liked the house.
