Hello! We are your hosts, Ken & Jo Anne Fiske. We purchased this house as our retirement home. It is located right on the banks of the Trout River in Montgomery Center and has been lovingly renovated from top to bottom. We love this area so much and wanted to share it!
In the summertime, when the water is at its lowest, you can relax and frolic in the refreshing cool water of the Trout River. Just around the river bend is a deeper, more private swimming hole. In the evening, relax around the fire pit.
In the winter, the mountain is just a 15-minute drive away. We are also located directly on the VAST (Vermont Association of Snow Travelers) trail.
Entering this apartment, you will find a small vestibule to hang your hats and coats; there is also an area for skis and snow gear. Ascending the custom staircase, you are greeted by an open living room/dining/kitchen area with vaulted beamed ceilings and track lighting throughout. All lighting is on dimmer switches. Here you will also find a flat screen TV with built-in DVD player and remote, Defiant gas fireplace and a brand new Simmons sofa-sleeper with air controls to customize to your desired firmness. The huge double windows overlook the river.
The kitchen boasts brand new top of the line stainless steel appliances: French-door fridge with ice maker, 5-burner gas range, deep double sinks and granite countertops. A private deck is located off the dining area.
Down the short hallway, you will find the bathroom with custom walk-in shower with sitting bench; also a stack washer/dryer. Across the hall is a set of bunk beds and at the end of the hallway is your huge master bedroom featuring a platform king-size pillow top Sleep Number bed with dual remote! An electric wall mounted fireplace will keep you toasty warm in the winter months. You will also find plenty of extra pillows and linens.
And we haven't forgotten Fido! We have even provided a bed, bowls, and a toy for your favorite furry travelling companion!
Our little house on the river is just a short walk (maybe 5 minutes) to all the town amenities: grocery store with great liquor and wine selection, nightclub, restaurants, post office, bike shop (they also rent out snowmobiles in the winter), ATM, and churches.
Thank you for checking us out. We look forward to meeting you!+ More
