Holiday Rental House
I bought this church from the Roman Catholic Diocese almost twelve years ago. The stained glass is original and is illuminated each morning by the sunrise coming up over Black Mtn. This stunning space is the result of a three year renovation. The curved walls and archways create a true sanctuary like space that is hard to leave once you are there. Stratton Mountain is 30 minutes to the access road and under 40 to Mount Snow. Brattleboro, just five minutes away, has been voted consistently as one of the best small towns in America to visit. If you want to ski, snow shoe, shop, eat, sip local brew and explore the town, or never leave the Sanctuary, this is your spot!

Brattleboro, just five minutes away, has been voted consistently as one of the best small towns in America to visit. If you want to ski, snow shoe, shop, eat, sip local brew and explore the town, or never leave the Sanctuary, this is your spot! The master suite is up in the extended 'choir loft' that I built out to make a spacious bedroom and dressing room, and has it's own full bath with double-headed shower and 54' claw-foot tub. There are two beautiful, small private rooms to the left and right of what used to be the altar. They feature curved walls, twin bed below, a loft above with full or queen bed, and a large skylight in each. There is a full bathroom for these rooms with European style shower as well as laundry. The kitchen is a chef's paradise, with a six burner, two grill, double oven Garland gas stove, double soapstone farm sink and beautifully detailed concrete countertops. Lots of counter space and a large farm table island in the middle provide adequate prep, serving and 'hang out' space (everyone seems to love to congregate in the kitchen!). The TV lounge under the choir loft has couches and a lounge chair for watching movies, reading and relaxing. We have cable, Netflix and Amazon capability through the Blue Ray player, and of course, high speed Internet. The heat is radiant floor which is wonderful for this space with 25' vaulted ceilings. There is also a propane instant on-demand glass door fireplace on the 'altar' for ambience throughout the space and cozying up to after a day on the mountain. There are country roads for walking, a wonderful river to visit nearby, a great neighborhood if you want to make friends, and the US post office right in the village. This is a most welcoming and generous space for one to six!More

About the neighbourhood
The Church is nestled into the village of West Dummerston. The West River is located just a 'stone's throw away', spanned by an historic covered bridge, the Rock River tributary, granite ledged Stickney Brook tributary and their many associated swimming holes including the 'famous' 'Indian Love Call'. We are 35 minutes to the slopes of Stratton Mtn., 40 minutes to Mt. Snow, about an hour to Bromley Mtn and the outlet shopping mecca of Manchester, VT. The 'One and only Brattleboro' VT is a mere 6 minutes by car, 20 minutes by bicycle and is a great place to dine, shop, explore the diverse art scene and 'First Friday Gallery Walk', just for starters. Voted a top arts destination and 'best place to visit' by travel magazines. Nearby Black Mtn. offers easy to challenging hiking trails or plan ...
