Vermont Hamlet Colonial
About the property
Built in 1786, this lovely Dutch Colonial home sits in the quiet hamlet of Williamsville in Newfane, and across the street from Rock River. Original flooring and a pellet stove contrast well with modern amenities: fast internet, a hot tub, pool table, and smart TVs. Five bedrooms sleep up to 8 adults, or up to 10 for groups with children.
If you would like the classic tiny Vermont town experience while also only being 20 minutes to Mt Snow and Brattleboro, this home is the one for your group.
The home has five bedrooms, four on the second floor and one on the first floor, with two full bathrooms and one half bathroom. The master is en-suite with a soaking tub, and three of the bedrooms have TVs. We provide fresh clean linens and towels for every group.
On the main floor is the kitchen, which has a large central island which doubles as a food prep area as well as a breakfast table. Great appliances, fully stocked with plates, cups, silverware, cookware, pots and pans, and more, so your group’s chef will have everything they need to prepare those meals! The dining room is in a separate room off the kitchen, with a table that seats up to 6.
Next to the kitchen is an entertainment area, with a large smart TV, a piano, and comfortable seating. On the other side of the kitchen is a large sitting room with more comfortable seating, and a wood pellet stove which provides an incredible ambiance and gentle heat for the home (we provide the pellets, and have central heating as well).
Across from the sitting room is the game room, with a pool table, propane gas fireplace, and TV, great for watching the game while shooting a round and catching up with friends and family.
The second floor is primarily living space, with four of the five bedrooms and the two full bathrooms. Each room has plenty of windows that overlook the hamlet, back yard, or side yards, depending.
Outside on the back deck is the hot tub, professionally maintained before each stay, and a gas BBQ, we provide the propane. Next to the deck is a goldfish pond, complete with a waterfall to aerate the water, and provides a gentle noise to melt the stress away. A covered wrap-around deck has a wood swing and plenty of seating so you can sit and watch the town go about its day.
The back and side yards are professionally landscaped, providing a nature oasis to help you decompress while on vacation. An old barn, where we keep the firewood and wood pellets, and a firepit in the back yard completes the scene.
The history of the home is also quite interesting, we are currently doing research to see if it can be added to the historical register. We do know that the home was built in 1786 and originally manufactured carriages, one of which is in the Smithsonian today!
The Perfect Day
Whether you are booking for cold weather or warm weather, this home is well situated for your group. Wake up with a warm cup of coffee or tea, and step onto the front porch to watch as the rest of the town starts their day, the river on the other side of the street providing an additional accompaniment.
For winter guests, after a nice breakfast, it is time to head to the slopes of Mount Snow for a day of fun. When the crew gets hungry for lunch, there are places in Dover to eat and shop, or you could take a little drive to Wilmington, another great Vermont town that has restaurants and shopping as well. Then it is time for part two on the slopes before heading back to the house for dinner, a soak in the hot tub, and if you are fortunate, there may be some snow showers for you to watch as the hot water relaxes the muscles. Wind down the rest of the day with a glass of your favorite beverage as you catch up with some friends and family, shooting pool or sitting in front of the wood pellet stove, the musician in the group playing a tune on the piano.
For warm weather and autumn guests you will have access to the river across the street, a great place to explore. Vermont is incredible in the warm weather, there is golfing, fishing, hiking, agrotourism, art festivals, and more, all of which can be found on Vermont’s tourism websites, or please ask and we can help as well. The yards on the property have plenty of grass for games, and the firepit is especially nice in the cooler Vermont evenings.
Of course, no matter the season, if you want to have a nice vacation in at the home, there are plenty of cozy places to curl up and read a book, or catch up on that TV show that you have been missing.
