At 'Ridgeview' you can go to sleep to the flicker of a wood stove, wake up to sunshine streaming through tall windows onto honey-colored pine flooring, and watch from your deck as sunlight fills the river valley and plays across the ridge opposite.

Beautiful newer construction of 1000 square feet, two-and-a-half story salt box on ten acres three of which are open and level grounds. You have privacy without feeling remote.

Additional Location Information

The property is ten+ acres overlooking the Rock River Valley. The ridge opposite gives the property its name: Ridgeview. Access is a town-maintained dirt road, plowed and useable year-round. The road is a cul de sac, so there is no noisy through traffic. Little traffic period. One guest described a passing car as "an event." The main road is within two miles, and Brattleboro and I-91 are just ten miles away.
There are neighbors within a hundred yards or so, but the house seems private and secluded, protected by trees. The view opens to the south/southeast for great light throughout the day, year-round. The grounds are mowed often in the summer, and provide areas for outdoor play, exploration, maybe a picnic. Three of the ten acres are cleared and level, the rest is wooded. There are some trails on the property for exploring (blueberries and black raspberries in summer!) and close by there are reserves with long hiking trails. (See Windmill Hill site.)
My guests come to tour the nearby area, to see the fall color, to ski at Mt. Snow and Stratton, to canoe, bike and hike, or to birdwatch. There are two renowned music festivals within 20 miles. The restaurants in the area are great, the closest being the 5-star Four Columns Inn on the common in Newfane. But many simply come for the peace and quiet, the romantic feel of the cabin, the sense of escape from the workaday world.
One of my great if simple joys when I'm there in summer or fall is sitting on the second level deck in the morning with a cup of coffee (tea if you prefer) and listening to the birds, watching the light come up. Evenings are peaceful and quiet. You can hear the birds one by one dropping out of the day for their own rest, until only the wood thrush is left.
Ridgeview is a very special place.
