Welcome to The Vermont Treehouse!
As you can tell by the pictures, this home is distinctive, fun, and probably unlike anything you've experienced! Enjoy the beauty and serenity of Vermont year round at this peaceful and spacious home. Lounge in the hot tub and stargaze at night and listen to the babbling brook down below. If you can pry yourself away, check out some of the many area restaurants for a great meal (or cook in in the well-equipped kitchen!).
Ride your bike just down the road to access the new Lamoille Valley Rail Trail or hike the countless trails in the nearby Mt. Mansfield State Forest. Snowshoe, hike, or backcountry ski right from your back door onto the lovely, private trail system on the property. This private getaway house overlooks a gorge and a stream, and offers many views of the surrounding hills and mountains.
Detached wood-fired sauna, hot tub on covered screened-in porch. Rustic brick/cedar interior, large outside deck.
Brick and hardwood floors, reading nooks, architectural details, books galore. A mix of contemporary stylish and classic furniture mixed with lived-in antiques. Three bedrooms, two with queen sized beds, one with twin beds. Living room also has one full-sized convertible. 1 1/2 baths, washer/dryer, satellite HDTV/DVR/DVD. Central heat, new backup generator in case of power outage, beautiful Hearthstone gas fireplace in living room. Free wireless internet. Well-equipped kitchen. Near Stowe, Smugglers' Notch and Jay Peak Resorts. For cross country skiing, there is the Trapp Family Lodge (where you can also book a sleigh or wagon ride, depending on the season) and the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Convenient to grocery stores and shopping.
Vermont has also become renowned for its wineries and microbreweries. Definitely worth taking the time to tour some of them!
There is so much to do in this little piece of heaven, or do nothing at all. Make your own adventure!
* Because of the layout and location of the house (on a cliff), it really is not 'kid friendly", especially for small children.
Here are excerpts from our Treehouse Guestbook, since we've owned the place, and we are proud to share them with you!
1/2/17 "We brought snowshoes, and spent hours in the woods exploring the trails. Gorgeous! The wood sauna was fantastic and easy to use. We didn't leave the property for three days!"
12/26/16 "Everything was fabulous! We loved it here and want you to know how special of a place you have. Thank you again and please know, this is a time my family and I will never forget!"
10/14/2016 "We had a lovely stay in the Vermont Treehouse, one of the most architecturally fascinating houses I've seen anywhere in the world. All the amenities of your actual home are here, washing machine and dryer with detergent, dishwasher with soap, lots of towels, etc., rather than some places I've stayed that have amenities but no means to use them. Every traveller will appreciate the whimsy of this place, from the spiral staircase to the top floor, to the window seat up above. I highly recommend a visit, both for the serious skier and the casual vacationer who wants to visit the true Vermont......Sandy, the owner is just down the road, and was easy to reach with our concerns (we had a fairly late arrival time and then ended up coming a day late.) Also, the wifi was blazing fast, fast enough to play online games : )
11/24/14 "What an amazing time we've had. Going to sleep and waking up to the gorge outside was one of the many reasons to love this house. We feel refreshed and recalibrated and will sing the praises of Johnson, Vt. back in NYC! Thank you for providing such a unique and enchanting home!"
1/14/15 "My wife and I had a wonderful stay here, and invited a couple of friends to join us. We found everything we needed to cook meals between the grocery store in Johnson and the appliances and utensils right here in the kitchen. The hot tub was a pleasant reprieve after a long day skiing the slopes of Stowe and the roads were plowed swiftly after a night's worth of snowfall. We look forward to our next stay here!"
1/30/15 " We had an amazing time at The Treehouse! Sandy and Dennis were so helpful (it was snowing and we couldn't make it up the hill- they did everything they could to solve our problem). We snowboarded on Sunday, hiked the trails on Monday, and spent a day/night in Burlington, and recommend all of those things. The hot tub was great after being out in the cold all day. The house had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we are in Vermont."
2/9/15 "What a beautiful hidden gem you have here. It was such a treat to be here and have a great place to relax between ski races. The Treehouse was a definite part of our success this past week. Thank you again, we hope to be back soon."
3/15/15 "We had an amazing time at The Treehouse! The bottom line is we love your house and hospitality. We hope to be fortunate enough to come back again in the future!"
6/2015 "The Treehouse had everything we needed....most especially peace, quiet, and rest in beautiful surroundings. The hot tub provided the perfect ending to a day of rigorous hiking up Hunger Mountain. You have created a warm, inviting, and unique experience in the heart of skiing and hiking country. The Treehouse is quite a treasure."
1/2016 " Thank you for providing the perfect place to enjoy a winter retreat in Vermont- its warm and cozy atmosphere, fantastic forest views in all directions, nearby walking trails and access to nearby towns and ski slopes. After one longish walk in snow shoes, returning home to the sauna was especially welcoming......we will return to Australia happy, very satisfied and rested. If we could, we would make this trip our annual retreat."
7/2016 "We had a wonderful time and loved your amazing Treehouse! We loved walking in the woods, and down the trails to the brook and waterfalls. Can't wait to come back this winter and snowshoe back there! Thanks for everything.
8/2016 "Dear Sandy and Dennis, our experience in your unique "Treehouse" was awesome. The setting is so romantic-a combination of rustic and modern. The kitchen was well stocked with every convenience. Add the sight of the woods coming in through the windows and you have it all, total relaxation, peace, contentment. Thank you for providing this hidden gem in your midst. We hope to be back again soon. " Al & Ann
