Ski Okemo (7 miles away) in winter.. or Killington, the largest ski
area in the East (about 20 miles away). Cross-country skiing on
prepared trails is available less than 5 miles from the house at Okemo
Valley Fox Run (a golf course in summer and fall), as well as on the
innumerable prepared V.A.S.T. snowmobile trails that criss-cross our
area. Horse drawn sleigh rides, guided snowmobile tours, even hot tubs
are available (delivered to our door and set up in advance).
Summer and fall vacationers have all that Vermont has to offer close
at hand. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, tennis, golf, antique
hunting and even Old-Time Locomotive Train rides are all nearby. Step
out onto the upper deck from the master bedroom and you feel like you
are in a huge treehouse...this is NOT a condo on the slopes!
Boating and fishing are all to be found on Lake Ninevah, less than one
mile from our front door. Virtually no visible new construction has
been permitted on this pristine 200 acre lake in more than thirty
years, leaving about 90% of its genuine wilderness shoreline intact.
It should be noted that boats with motors of more than 5 horsepower
are not permitted on Lake Ninevah, but we do throw in our two person
kayak, our canoe and our fishing dinghy (all people powered) at no
extra charge. Foliage Season (an unforgettable experience in Vermont)
usually peaks right around Columbus Day Weekend in October.
Bring your camera!
