Our gorgeous mountain home, nestled in the middle of the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, is available Nightly, or Weekly. It is available Monthly Jan- March 2018. Come enjoy all the Green Mountains have to offer while staying in a local's paradise! In the summer we have a variety of animals in the field, this summer two cows, soon to have babies and a few sheep. The goats may be back in the future.
Our beautiful family home is located in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. It is the perfect place to enjoy any season that Vermont has to offer.
There are many things to do right in Goshen without driving very far. Hike up Mount Moosalamoo, Goshen Dam, Silver Lake, Blueberry Hill hiking trails and mountain biking trails, Blueberry Management Area, Spirit in Nature trails, Widows clearing trails, and Voter Brook Overlook road .
Our place is about 15 minutes from the town of Brandon which has several wonderful restaurants, a book store, grocery store, fabric and knitting store, gift shops flower shop, Brandon Artist Guild, and other shopping. We have a wonderful Museum the Steven Douglas House and a fantastic library.
We are also about 25 minutes from the college town of Middlebury which is known for its quaint downtown and arts scene. The college also has a wonderful museum and beautiful campus to walk around. There are also many events hosted there throughout the year.
We are situated in the Moosalamoo Recreation Area which offers beautiful hiking and X-Country skiing trails to explore. We are nearby to Middlebury College Snowbowl for downhill skiing and Rikert Ski Center for X-Country skiing (one of two places in the state that makes snow!). We are also minutes away from Blueberry HIll Ski Center for back country skiing and snowshoeing. We can provide the snowshoes. We are also centrally located between several downhill ski areas. Killington is about 45 minutes away to the south and Sugarbush about 45 minutes away to the north. Lake Dunmore and Branbury State Park is 20 minute drive away, is the perfect place for kayaking, canoeing and swimming. Vermont's acclaimed Long Trail offers miles of trails and amazing vistas and is in close distance to the house.
However if you prefer to stick around the area, there is Goshen Dam less than a mile away(walk or drive), a wonderful spot for swimming and Silver Lake a short hike with stunning views. Hike up Mount Moosalamoo, or walk to Voter Brook overlook , explore Widows clearing trails and the Spirit in Nature trails, and enjoy a panoramic view from the Blueberry Management area.
Many guests, however, prefer to just relax in the comfort of our yard. There are breathtaking mountain views and much to explore. We also have a country style tennis / basketball court, with rackets and basketballs available.
The upstairs open loft sleeping area has an amazingly comfortable queen size bed, a double pull out couch, as well as a sitting area and high speed internet.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a table that seats six and a sitting area which is perfect to enjoy morning coffee. Dishwasher is available for use. The house has two large living rooms with southern and western exposure, drenching the house in sunlight at all times.

The house is equipped with all amenities, and linens and towels are provided. Our washing machine is available for your use, but true to our rustic nature we do not have a dryer. There is an inside drying rack and outside clothesline for your convenience.
Our wireless internet service is available but maybe not as fast as you are all used to. Cell phones do not work at our house but some folks can text to another iphone. You are welcome to use our land line phone.

We have been living in Vermont for the past 30 years. We raised 4 beautiful daughters in this house and now that they are all on to other adventures we have some extra space. We love meeting new people and have traveled to many different parts of the world (often visiting our daughters who love to travel as well). We also have a home in Rhode Island that we are now listing for weekly rentals.
David is a retired teacher and Rene is a physical therapist. We enjoy all things related to the outdoors from collecting sap to making syrup on the wood stove, swimming, hiking, and skiing the trails by our house. We love to read, garden, and enjoy our life in Vermont and Rhode Island Please contact us for more information!
