Goldry Hill - short-term/event

The Space

In the heart of the Moosalamoo National Forest Recreation Area, this is a bright spacious, modern home on over 30 acres bordering national forest with an open view of a large private pond. There is a small beach area on one end of the pond and a screened-in porch attached to the house for enjoying the view in the shade. Beyond the pond is a lovely creek and just up the road are various hiking and over 40 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails as well as the Robert Frost Interpretive trail and the Robert Frost Cabin, Snow Bowl, Bread Loaf campus, Lake Dunmore, Silver Lake, Goshen Dam Lake, and the famous Blueberry Hill. Also nearby are Middlebury College and the towns of Middlebury, Brandon, Lincoln, Bristol, and within an hour are Burlington, Rutland, Sugarbush (slopes) and Killington.

Relax in the quiet and enjoy views of green from every room. This beautiful retreat in nature is perfect for families, couples, friends, artists, writers, photographers, yoga enthusiasts, special private events and more!
