About this listing
Wintertime is a beautiful time in Vermont, and at our home you are privately nestled in the woods. There are many downhill ski areas within an hour's drive, as well as cross country skiing nearby, and miles of woods behind the house for snowshoeing!
Hardwick, VT, featured in the book The Town That Food Saved and in many media outlets, has become a local foods mecca for those interested in local food and sustainable agriculture. Come and check out all that's going on within the sustainable agriculture world here! (Buffalo Mountain Co-op, Vermont Food Venture Center, the Center for an Agricultural Economy, Highfields Center for Composting, Vermont Soy, Vermont Natural Coatings, Pete's Greens, High Mowing Seeds, the Cellars at Jasper Hill, Caledonia Spirits, Hill Farmstead Brewery, etc, etc...) It is also about 1 hr to several downhill ski areas (Stowe, Burke Mtn., Jay Peak, Smuggler's Notch, and Sugarbush) and is located about 20 minutes from the Craftsbury Outdoor Center for cross country skiing. Hardwick's restaurant choices include the Vermont Supper Club, and also Positive Pie with wood-fired pizza.
This home is three miles from Hardwick Village. It is located on 20 acres of woods, primarily maple trees and has a lovely year-round stream that flows by the house. The house is of a natural decor and constructed with natural materials. There is parking, a washer/dryer available, wireless internet, and full-use of bathroom and kitchen. Two woodstoves warm the house during the winter. There's a porch (currently in construction) and deck constructed from wood milled from trees on the land and finished with Hardwick's own Vermont Natural Coatings.
Nichols Pond is motor-free and is about 1 mile away and offers a beautiful view if you climb up to Nichols Ledge (about a 15 min. hike) or is a lovely place to swim or take a kayak out. I personally like to ride my bike there and hop in the water!
The whole house with two bedrooms (one has a king-size bed and one with twin beds) is available. Inquire for schedule details.
We have 20 acres, with hundreds of acres behind us! Nichols Pond and Nichols Ledge are within walking distance - hike up to see the beautiful view!
The house has two bedrooms and one and a half baths, internet, apple tv, netflix, piano, guitar, full kitchen, washer/dryer, woodstove, games, sunroom, large dining table, and lovely natural and simple decor.
The stream next to the house is deep enough to soak in, or spend some lazy time right next to it in the hammock (during the warmer seasons, of course!)
