Enjoy STUNNING views of Mount Equinox in three directions. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths and one half bathroom. Enjoy the nightly sunset from the Venetian tiled screened porch, or lounge on the wrap-around decks. In the winter you can sled down the front hill, in the summer - it's great for pick-up sports. The master suite has a walk-in closet, Travertine marble bathroom, and screened porch with 2 hanging chairs and a hammock. The main living area boasts cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, a wood-burning stove and tile mosaics. Each bedroom is themed so family and friends can stay in the Jungle room, Nemo room, or Safari room with murals and frescoes. The iron-rail balcony overlooks the decorative hearthstone wood-burning stove from 20 feet above. 10 people will sleep comfortably in beds, and there are 3 big couches and plenty of blankets if you want to accommodate extra people.

A sun-room includes a soothing fountain that can be turned on to enjoy the sound of running water. There's ample parking and a large turn-around for horse trailers. Enjoy campfires in the outdoor fire pit or bar-b-que on the grill nightly. Kids will enjoy playing in the castle-themed tree house or sliding down the fireman's pole.

Unique curb appeal make this one of the most recognizable homes in town. There's a 5-mile jogging loop around the local roads - most of them dirt. Just leave the driveway, start jogging, and just keep turning right until you get back to the house. Or walk 4 miles across the valley and up the other side to the incredibly scenic, high-elevation sheep farm. Grab a raft and float the Battenkill River. Within a mile, there are 2 bridges - Park a car at the south bridge and hitch a ride to the north bridge where you can "put in" for a really relaxing 2 hour river float.
Evenings are spent in the stone campfire veranda, or enjoying the sunsets by just hanging around in hammocks. The sun sets right over the mountains in front of the house and the screened porch provides the most incredible mood-lighting every night. Walk a quarter mile to the Hill Farm Inn every Thursday night for the little-known, but highly attended locals night. Strangers are soon friends and you'll enjoy the restaurant in the newly renovated Hill Farm Inn. Then walk home without the worry of a drive.+ More
