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 wake 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’re close enough!) or find a nice bistro for a sandwich. After you have rested those legs, head on back to the slopes for an afternoon session.
If you are here in the spring, summer or fall, grab those clubs and hit the link, or your fishing pole and test your skills as an angler on the best lakes and river 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 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 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.
