About the property

Our incredible log home is built on 60 acres, sleeps 23 and is perfect for a family reunion, large group of friends, corporate retreat, academic seminar, or several families who wish to vacation together. A seamless fusion of rustic charm and exquisite luxury, the estate has a private lake with a dock, a gazebo, hot tub, tennis court and absolute privacy. Perfect for skiers, the home is only 5 minutes from Bromley, and is close to Okemo, Magic Mountain, and Stratton as well. Also ideal for those looking to witness the incredible fall foliage in autumn, and those seeking a relaxing waterfront spring or summer vacation.

A beautiful inground pool is being built this April and will be finished in May, ready for summer 2019. The hot tub is being moved outside and will be ready for summer guests as well.

The Space

The home offers seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, and plenty of space for up to 23 people to stay very comfortably. The entire house has a natural ambiance, from the golden-brown wood that forms the walls and ceiling, to the unique wood logs used to make the beds, to the tasteful rustic decorations, all with luxury in mind.

The pool is under construction and will be available for summer renters. It will be located near the lake to take advantage of the incredible views of the property, and heated so your family can enjoy the water in comfort.

Outside is a lake that is fed by two natural sources, the water is clean! A hot tub is also available for your enjoyment. A large deck has a BBQ for the grill master in your group and has incredible views of the lake, and a firepit for burning wood that you can find in the nearby forest. A tennis court is also available for the athletes, and there is a gazebo for relaxing.

The kitchen has new state-of-the-art appliances, granite countertops, and is stocked with everything you need to keep your crew well fed and happy.

The family room has a large fireplace with plenty of places to store wood, and the lower level has a large game room that has a pool table, poker table, knock hockey, chess sets, and a dartboard. There are also a couple of bars in the home from which to serve everyone their favorite beverages. This home was designed to ensure maximum enjoyment and entertainment for all its guests.

The house has two master bedrooms with in-suite bathrooms, one is located above the garage with its own gorgeous bathroom, living area and privacy, the second is the main house and has an amazing bathroom and balcony.

The Perfect Day

Wake up and put on a pot of coffee, and watch as the new day announces itself as the caffeine warms and wakes you up, all the while taking in the view of the gorgeous private lake. Use the fresh eggs you purchased at a local farm to make egg sandwiches, or omelets, or scrambled eggs, along with some fresh berries or other fruit.

Here in winter? Then get ready for a fun day of skiing! Head to the slopes to shred some late morning snow, then have lunch at home (you are close enough!) or find a nice bistro for a sandwich. After you have rested those legs, head on back to the slops for an afternoon session!

If you are here in the spring, summer or fall, grab those clubs and hit the links, or your fishing pole and test your skills as an angler on the best lakes and rivers that Vermont has to offer. Do you like to support local artists? There are plenty of art galleries and shops to find that next perfect piece for your home. There are also wineries and breweries to tour, if that is more your speed.

Once the day starts to conclude, it is time for games! Deal out the cards for a Texas Hold’em poker tournament, or rack up the pool table, with bragging rights on the line. For those looking to relax, serve a round of your group’s favorite beverages as you and your group have a lovely conversation on the large outdoor deck or in the gazebo, or while soaking your muscles in the hot tub. Or you can start a fire in the outdoor firepit and reminisce about the memories you have just made while you snack on some treats while watching as the delightful Vermont sunset announces the conclusion of the day.

If you are a writer or painter, the property is absolutely fantastic to minimizing distractions, providing vistas for inspiration, and plenty of places to set up the typewriter to start the next great American novel. Put on a little background music, and get creating!

The Neighborhood

The house is located on a private secluded 60-acre estate high above the valley floor in the middle of Green Mountain National Forest. Absolute privacy is guaranteed.

One of the best features for winter renters is that the estate is located in the “golden triangle” in Vermont, it is close to several ski resorts, which makes this the perfect location for long ski vacations. There are so many places to ski your party will not be bored. Magic Mountain is 5 miles away, Stratton Mountain is 15 miles away, and Okemo is 17 miles away. Bromley Mountain, only 5 minutes away, is great for kids as well as for novice and intermediate skiers. It is so close, you can even go back home for lunch, and then back to the mountain under an hour! Two excellent cross-country skiing centers, Wild Wings and Viking Nordic, are less than 10 minutes away. There are also options for snowmobiling. If this is not enough, Manchester and its surrounding areas offer several unique and unforgettable sleigh ride experiences, including dogsledding.

In the summer enjoy numerous hiking or cycling opportunities nearby. Bromley Sun Mountain Summer Park offers family adventures for the whole day of fun including New England’s longest zipline, Vermont’s longest water-slide raft ride, America’s longest triple-track Alpine Slide, climbing walls, mini-golf and much more.

The historic town of Manchester is only 15 minutes away. There you can enjoy many fine restaurants. You may also visit the highly rated Equinox Golf Resort and Spa in the center of town which offers a wide range of activities: Land Rover Experience Driving School offers full day of off-road driving instructions on the 80-acre purpose-built course. Green Mountain Falconry School offers a rare opportunity to handle a trained hawk.

Great For Large Groups

Stayed at Dmitry's home for 2 nights during a large ski trip to Okemo & Stratton. House fit over 20 people & we brought 10 additional air mattresses so we wouldn't share beds. The house is very homey and beautiful. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook huge meals and the fridge in the garage was an added bonus to store more food. Fireplaces kept the house nice and warm in 15 degree weather. House has plenty of bathrooms, so no one is ever waiting. Pool table, darts, poker, & foosball was great to keep everyone entertained. Sound system also is great quality. Indoor hot tub is awesome. Dmitry is a gracious host and was available to help us in an instant at all hours of the day. Would recommend.

We can't wait to stay at this house again!

Absolutely beautiful house on a wonderful property in a great location! It's everything exactly as shown in the pics. Ten of my friends and I had a wonderful 3 day weekend here. The indoor hot tub was amazing! The recreation rooms were much fun. The heating worked very well, even with sub zero temperatures outside. Dmitry, the host was very responsive to any questions we had. The house was well stocked. The location was close to everything you would need. Bromley Slopes 5 min. (Stratton was 25 min). Loved it!

Great location and home

Excellent location close to many ski resorts. We covered Bromley, Stratton, Okemo and Snow in four days. House is big and spread out with lots of space. Very clean. Dmitry was great. Responsive and welcoming

Skiing is Officially Started!

I and a group of friends had a quick get away to start our skiing season. We found this great house and our stay was fantastic! The fresh snow was a plus and Bromley, Stratton and Okemo are a quick drive away. Location could not be better. Bromley ski school that is only 2 miles away was great for small children. Everything is brand new in the house. We enjoyed relaxing near the fireplace and soaking in the brand new hot tub. We only wished weekend would last longer :) We are definitely coming back soon.
