The Perfect Day
In the winter, wake up early to hit the slopes, come back to the house to eat lunch and warm up by the fireplace, then head over to the Windham Hill Inn for fine dining of the best seasonal cuisine like cider Brined Pork Chop, at night relax as a group with a movie and some popcorn.
For the Summer or Fall, sharpen your golf game at the Tater Hill Golf Club, enjoy a lunch and a cocktail at their clubhouse restaurant, take a late-afternoon hike on a picturesque trail, and finally enjoy an outdoor BBQ during the sunset with a fun yard game.
Don’t forget to cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool! The views are absolutely breathtaking, a real treat for summer guests and something you will look forward to every day! In between swims, hunt for firewood in the forest and pile it up next to the outdoor firepit, ready to burn as the sun sets.
At the end of the day, soak those muscles in the hot tub, and gather around the fire with your favorite beverage, and a good book, unless there is a lively conversation to be had. A real treat is to watch the sunset while in the arms of a loved one, with a drink to keep you warm.
Then it is time for bed, and a great night’s sleep so you will wake up refreshed and relaxed for the next day of amazing Vermont fun!
Windham is a small, historical town with a warm, local atmosphere. There are plenty of stores within minutes of driving for all of your supplies and groceries. Experience farm-to-table dining at cozy inns and restaurants, as well.
If you like to cook, locally owned and operated farms provide the freshest produce, eggs, meats, cheeses, and baked goods. The eggs are a special delight, their golden yellow yolks are perfect for making omelets or boiled and cut up in a salad. You can pair your food selections with local wines and beers, which can be purchased either directly from the wineries and breweries, or in any number of shops and stores.
For guests saying during the warmer months, the berry picking (June to October) is also very popular, as is fishing in the lakes and rivers, or you can go boating, rafting, and tubing. The swimming pool is open from the end of May to the end of September, the actual dates depends on weather. For those who love to fish, the lakes and rivers are stocked with trout, and there are local fish to catch as well, bass and pike to name a couple. You can fly fish, cast and reel with lures, or use live bait, whichever format you wish to choose! And in Manchester there is a fishing school which can teach you techniques to increase the chances you go home with a trophy or meal for the family.
In addition to the fishing schools, Manchester has a ton to offer: great restaurants and bars, cute shops and art galleries, and a large discount outlet mall for premier clothes and accessories at great prices. For those looking for something sportier, you can learn how to drive off-road with the Land Rover Driving Experience school, and there is a shooting school to improve your hunting and target shooting techniques. There are museums and Lincoln’s family home to visit, as well.
The VAST trails are very close to the property, perfect for a group of vacationing snowmobilers in winter, or a group that wants to hike and see Vermont’s nature up close, see it come alive in spring, or those great sounds, smells, and sights of autumn.
We hope you will love this home just as much as you love Vermont.
