Bucolic beauty and true comfort await in this lovely, renovated Dorset vacation rental. With the Green Mountains as a backdrop and expansive grounds at your feet, your family will relax and unwind for a truly memorable Vermont vacation.
Situated in lovely Dorset, a charming town about 42 miles from Dover, this home has a private, rustic setting on a dirt road, set amid white birch trees and a flower garden. The Green Mountains can be viewed from various vantage points in this home, and you're not far from the downhill action. Stratton Mountain Resort is only 26 miles away, and Okemo Mountain Resort is just 34 miles east. You're also only a few moments from premier New England ski resorts like Mt. Snow and Bromley Mountain! Please note that you may need AWD or snow tires to access this property during snow season.
"Mountain Tranquility" befits its name. You will find peace and solitude the minute you spy the colorful exterior of this two-story manse. The living room is eminently inviting. Relax on the cream couch or matching armchairs, set by an antique wood fireplace (wood is provided), flatscreen TV with a Roku and Hulu screening via the WiFi, and a luxurious Persian rug. French doors bring in a lot of natural light and offer an enticing view of the landscaped grounds - you may even see some local wildlife!
The hardwood floors extend into the formal dining room. An eight-seat dining room table and antique wood stove dominate the space, and floor-to-ceiling multi-paned doors lead out onto a lovely deck with a charcoal grill for cooking under the stars.
A gourmet kitchen, with all the necessary accoutrements to craft a savory meal, awaits your pleasure and culinary expertise. A three-seat breakfast bar under pendant lighting is the choice spot for a buffet meal. The tiled countertops offer plenty of spots for meal prep, and the built-in four-burner gas stove is perfectly placed so you're not knocking over pots and pans. Two ovens allow one to make main courses and desserts simultaneously, and a dishwasher and fridge round out the appliances.
Head up one flight to the three bedrooms, which make this home ideal for up to eight guests (six adults max, please). The landing showcases another Persian rug, and two full baths, one with a clawfoot tub, are nearby as well. The master bedroom features a lovely king bed, carpeted floors, bright orange walls, and French doors leading to a balcony affording gorgeous mountain views. The second bedroom offers a full bed in a white frame, and the colorful third bedroom has two twin bunk beds side by side for late-night reminiscing.
You get a washer and dryer, free WiFi (though the WiFi is spotty), a DVD player, and a cozy patio for outdoor entertaining.
Dorset, Manchester, and the area around it offer a wealth of activities, from hiking in spring and summer to different activities fall and winter. Head into town to savor some local pie or a cappuccino after a day of sightseeing or hiking the Green Mountains. The area is home to a variety of ski resorts, offering trails for downhillers of every ability. You can also snowshoe and cross-country ski during the winter.
Tranquility and a sense of peace await at this spacious and luxurious Vermont rental cottage. Book it today!
