Beautiful year round home located in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, 7 miles from Hill Farmstead (with the world's #1 beer as rated by RateBeer for 5 years running!), 15 minutes from the picturesque towns of Craftsbury and Greensboro, and 40 minutes from great mountain biking on East Burke's Kingdom Trails. Our location offers plenty of privacy as the last house on a well-maintained dirt road, and situated on 40 acres with our own spring-fed pond on the premises for summer swimming or winter skating. Views from the western-facing deck are of the northern range of Vermont's Green Mountains, from Mt. Mansfield to Jay Peak. Beautiful vistas around every curve and quintessential New England towns complete with country stores are an easy drive.
