This family friendly house sits next to mine within 90 acres of forest . With trails throughout you can hike in its natural setting and perhaps glimpse some of the wildlife that make their homes here too. Enjoy the tranquility of this secluded setting and unwind from your busy life. Children can have fun outdoors too and all trails join to lead you safely home! Conditions permitting you can enjoy an evening bonfire in the backyard . Check first in case fire restrictions are in force.
The house itself has 3 separate bedrooms, a large living room, separate dining room with table and chairs for 8 guests. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare your meals. The balcony overlooks the valley and the woods below. A firepit with firewood provided is available when conditions permit.
This house sits amidst a managed forest planted nearly 50 years ago with 36,000 trees. Since then I have planted at least 5000 more to add diversity. The large and varied network of groomed trails meander through our private 90 acres. Hike, snowshoe or ski through the large maple stand, the mostly pine woods and around the large natural pond. A paddock and barn near the pond were once home to horses but now provide open meadow for birds and animals.
The entire house is yours for your stay. Wheelchair access upon request. The kitchen is well appointed with dishes, pots and pans as well as basics like spices and cooking oil. Coffee and tea will be available for your morning wake up. I provide choices for your breakfast including homemade bread and jams, eggs, cereal, milk, juice and locally produced organic yogurt.
