Our home is located mid-way between Dorset and Manchester VT. This mid 70's style home has been remodeled and updated. The rooms are tastefully decorated. New baths, a well appointed kitchen, large dining area, vaulted ceilings, large deck & marble patio w/ fire pit. Private setting surrounded by woods and quarry pond. The access is flat and off a paved road. 3 min to Dorset. 5 min to Manchester. 10 min to VT Horse Show. 15 min to Bromley. 25 min to Stratton.
After renting places at the Jersey Shore and OBX, where the kitchen, and, the contents of the kitchen, seemed like a complete after thought, we decided to set up our kitchen properly. We like to cook and entertain, and the kitchen reflects our lifestyle. New white dishes & serving platters. New utensils, cutlery, pots & pans, coffee maker, French press, toaster over, blender, tea kettle, storage containers and kitchen tools.
We stocked the cabinets with proper wineglasses, martini glasses, champagne flutes and craft beer glassware.
Our kitchen will be stocked with coffee, coffee filters, tea, olive oil, vinegar(s), spices. Foil, plastic wrap, baggies, trash bags are all provided.
Paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, mop, dustpan, broom, vacuum and a dust-buster are provided.
Our comfortable family room has the only TV on property. It is a 55 inch 'smart TV'. We also have a Bose i-pod system for music. Bring your own I-Pod. There is an attachment for the sound system which will allow you to use Pandora or Spotify broadcasts, from your smart phone, to the Bose.
You will be able to enjoy the entire home, and the surrounding grounds.

Другие важные подробности
PELLET STOVE: The pellet stove is a very efficient source of heat during the winter. Use it as your main source of heat, with electric base board heat as back-up. It is easy to start, and directions are provided. The fireplace area has a nook, and it will be filled with six bags of pellets. Additional bags are stored in the outside shed.
PLOWING: The driveway and parking area will be plowed, during and after snow storms. You may be asked to move cars, to maximize the area to be plowed.
SKI RACK: Skis must be kept outside, on the ski rack.
CELL PHONE / WIFI: I have added a Verizon 'mini' tower, in the family room, to boost the cell signal. It works great in the house and on the deck area. You must dial #48 to connect to the mini tower. The Verizon tower is over the mountain, in East Dorset, and reception in our home is spotty. AT&T has a tower close by, and reception is good. WIFI is available, and the code is in the house manual, provided. It works throughout the house.
SMOKING: Please, no smoking inside the house, on the deck and on the grounds.
PETS: No pets allowed.
QUARRY POND: The quarry pond, next to our parking area, does not belong to us. It is part of our small neighborhood. We do have the best location to see this 120+ year old marble quarry, and to enjoy the peaceful setting of mature birches and massive blocks of cut stone. Swimming, is not recommended, and would be at your own risk. Please watch you children while around the pond.
SEPTIC: Not to be crude, but this is a serious topic. We are on a septic system for sewage. Your body waste, plus toilet paper are the ONLY items to be flushed down the toilets.
WILDLIFE: Remember, that we are in the mountains, surrounded by forests and woods. Place all trash in the trash container and bungee close it tight. Clean up completely after dining outside, grill included. Do not leave any food or plates outside. Do not give wild animals any reason to visit!!
PATIO: Please close outdoor patio umbrella every night and when ever a storm threatens. Also, store the seat cushions in the deck-box when rain is predicted.
FIRE PIT: Bring the hose to the fire pit for safety, and extinguish fire when leaving.

Gwynn is currently employed as a regional sales representative for a major international jewelry brand. She enjoys interior design, travel, entertaining, reading and wine. Our son, lives in Philadelphia, and works in the production side of the film industry. He is a part time employee at an Orvis store in NJ, and an avid, almost rabid, fly-fisherman.
