We prefer smaller groups who appreciate peace and quiet. Our antique farmhouse in a spectacular Northeast Kingdom setting nine miles from Burke Mountain offers 270-degree mountain views on 90 acres at a breezy 1,800-foot elevation. Property has wooded walking trails that go to 2,000 feet. House is surrounded by several acres of level lawns with sugar maple, apple, birch and elm trees, and offers stunning views of Bald Mountain and the easterly mountain range. Enjoy the deck, outdoor shower, fire-pit and wood-fired hot tub under pitch--black starry skies. The home sits well back from a lightly traveled paved road that becomes a dirt road a short distance farther north. Property includes land across street for privacy. Property is ideally located one mile from nine-hole Granddad's invitational golf course, two miles to Center or Newark Ponds, four miles to Bald Hill or Jobs Ponds, and several miles to Kingdom Trails mountain biking, Lake Willoughby, and Northwoods hiking trails.

This property will work best for guests who will enjoy its antique charms (uneven floors, etc) while appreciating its truly one-of-a-kind setting and landscaped grounds. Trails are for walking or cross-country skiing only.+ More
