This C. 1800 brick cape sited on 38 acres overlooking its own vineyard and rolling southwest facing fields to a view of the church steeple in the nearby hamlet of S. Reading and distant hills beyond. The home is perfectly suited for a whole family or gathering of friends who are spending time together for an overnight/weekends/holidays/a week or a month!
The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances to entertain a group. Place settings for ten are provided.

The master bedroom is on the first floor with adjoining master bath. There are two bedrooms upstairs that share a full bath. The ‘bunk room’ has a queen size bed and two single beds. The ‘grey room’ has a queen size bed. The office, also on the first floor, has a comfy futon available.
A washer/dryer and powder room are located in the mudroom/entryway. Towels, linens, ironing board and iron, blow dryers are all conveniently provided.
Enjoy all that the area has to offer 4 seasons of the year. Just minutes in either directions brings you to a major ski resort. Killington’s Skyeship Gondola is only a 30 minute drive, and Okemo Mountain is even closer, at about 20 minutes. Cross Country Skiing is nearby as well, at Wilderness Trails in Quechee and Woodstock Ski Touring Center, both within 20-30 minutes.
Not ski season? Not a skier? Skating, lakes, foliage, antiquing, restaurants, hiking, theater, all easily accessible from this getaway. Set in rural Vermont enjoy the many activities nearby, or as many of our guest do, simply enjoy a quiet moment on the stone patio or by the fire. The surrounding area offers ample opportunities for fishing, mountain biking, hiking, hand gliding, balloon rides and local highlights like Simon Pearce, Harpoon Brewery, Billings Farm, Town of Woodstock and Dartmouth University in Hanover, New Hampshire.
Nightly/weekends, a 24 hour notice is appreciated but not required.
