In the summer you could sit out on the back patio and enjoy a cool beverage after a day of hiking, or antiquing. As you lounge on the couch you could stream your favorite shows on the flat-screen Smart TV, you'll feel completely at peace under the exposed beam ceilings or, gaze out the window to the mountains. Some may want to head into the library for a bit of quiet and luxuriate with literature. With fully stocked floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on every wall with books on many subjects, the library will transport you back in time to the 19th-century.  No matter what your group's chef chooses to prepare in the fully equipped kitchen, you're sure to be impressed by their culinary capabilities as you dine around one of the family size tables. Extra tables are scattered around to expand seating. During the warm months there is a propane grill on the patio along with patio furniture and picnic tables to gather around. No matter the season, be sure to spend time in the expansive yard. Complete with a furnished stone patio, fire pit, and seasonal gas grill, the backyard is a great place for a barbecue, snowshoeing adventure, a game of crochet, or a small wedding! You may even see ducks sitting in the pond, a fox crossing a snowy pasture or see an eagle flying overhead.  Since the 'Smokeshire Hilltop Farmhouse' sits on a 100-acre working farm, guests can participate in the farming lifestyle if they choose. Whether you want to pick fresh blueberries or raspberries, help out with 'haying,' or learn how to harness a workhorse, the helpful homeowners welcome you to join them. -- THE LOCATION -- Grab your skis and spend an unforgettable day at Okemo Mountain. With 120 trails conveniently situated 17 minutes from the property, Okemo has slopes for rookie riders, Olympic hopefuls, and everyone in between!  You are also within a 1-hour drive of 5 other ski areas, Killington, Stratton, Magic Mountain, Bromley and Mount Snow. Mix it up! Experience small-town New England with a trip to one of the neighboring towns. Located within 8 miles of Ludlow and Chester, this home is just a stone's throw from unique eateries like Homestyle Hostel, MoJo Café or MacLaomainn’s Scottish Pub; or Historical places like Calvin Coolidge’s Estate or Hildene the summer home of Robert Todd Lincoln. In the summer months, visit the local Farmers Markets antique shops, and craft fairs. Of course, there is always the famous Vermont Brewery Passport Challenge. Take advantage of your wilderness surroundings by exploring the area's many logging roads and trails. Perfect for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, these trails allow visitors to see the wild side of the Green Mountain State. Some of the trails on the farm meet up with VAST (Vermont Association of Snow Travelers) maintained trails, making them safe places to snowmobile or mountain bike. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
