Huge Vermont Home near where the Battenkill Rises

Located in: Dorset
This house is situated in the town where the Battenkill River forms. With its spectacular backdrop, the Battenkill is one of Vermont’s best known rivers.

Our house has historic significance as the town's first General store. House provides a beautiful setting n this quaint town as we are surrounded by spectacular views of the Taconic and Green Mountains.

This old house has been recently renovated and lies directly across the street from the renowned Wilson House. In our home you will find informative pictures (photos taken in the late 1800's and early 1900's) and documents (i.e. original blue prints store ledgers) that enlighten guests to the building's notable past.

Adding to the charm and authenticity/history of the General Store ‐ which at one time had its own train stop ‐ there will be the occasional train (Vermont Rail) coming through town a few times day.

Other things to note:

The house has 2 levels with living quarters that include 5 bedrooms with a total of 10 beds. There are 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms (one on each floor) so the space can easily accommodate a large family or a number of families. The floors can also be partitioned at guests' discretion.

We (Sandy and John) will greet you with a warm welcome upon arrival; provide you with a space overview, discuss the area and local events, furnish you with a key, local maps and applicable literature for your stay.

East Dorset is a charming, quiet and old fashioned town that lends itself to hiking, biking, fishing, skiing or just plain relaxing. This pretty venue is sandwiched between the Taconic and Green Mountains and so offers impressive views.

The East Dorset General Store is just steps away from the house for snacks and supplies. Retail outlets, a variety of restaurants and serious theater are less than 10 minutes away. Bromley and Stratton ski resorts are in close proximity by just 20 and 30 minutes respectively from our location.

Guest access

Access to the space is provided via a separate anteroom with a stairway leading to the second floor.

Interaction with guests:

Host resides in adjacent building and so is generally available to attend to any matters.

Other things to consider:

Noteworthy venues include: Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show; the Southern VT Arts Center; Hildene (The Lincoln Family Home); numerous shopping outlets (Orvis, Vermont Country Store etc.) and excellent restaurants; Bromley and Stratton Mountain Ski Resorts. Also this municipality hosts the Dorset Theater Playhouse the Dorset Quarry (picnicking and swimming), and many historic inns. The venue also is easy access to acclaimed farmers markets including Dorset Manchester and Weston.
The local highways provide quick access to other ski venues in the area. Our location is a mere 1 1/4 hours from Albany or Saratoga.

Last but not least:

Sandy is an accomplished chef of the former Pan Latin Café out of downtown Manhattan. Since moving to Vermont in 2014 Sandy has participated in the various farmers markets and formal caterings where she has emphasized locally sourced produce with Latin inspired cuisine to create her unique dishes. Sandy has a deep knowledge of local growers, restaurants, farmers and artisans and is of course open to creating her unique dishes for our guests. Sandy can cook her unique dishes with 48 hours notice. She can prepare meal occasions along with picnic baskets, boxed lunches and produce any and all meals and/or caterings for special events and cooking classes. Sandy's unique energy and passion translate to a memorable Vermont culinary experience. See guest reviews!!
