The moment you step onto the property, nestled between two state forests, you will feel yourself relax. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck, listening to the river and watching the birds fly by. If you are lucky, you might even see a bald eagle. Evenings can be spent around one of the fire pits, roasting s’mores and star gazing. While you most certainly will be spending much of your time outside, the inside of the home has the perfect blend of country charm and modern amenities. The kitchen boasts a Wolf gas range and subzero fridge. Even doing dishes isn’t a chore with the view of the river. The master bedroom and one guest room are on the second floor. The third floor has one bedroom with a double bed and there is an open ‘bunk’ room with three twin beds. Perfect for kids to sleep and play. The fourth bedroom is on the first floor and can be used as a TV room and/or bedroom with a pull down Murphy bed making it flexible for your needs. For all you Peloton fanatics, there is one in the master bedroom overlooking the river. The cabin is perfect for any fly-fishing enthusiast! Spring is peak fishing seasons on the river. Hiking, swimming, tubing, canoeing (the house comes with tubes and two canoes) antiquing and more are all in short proximity to this oasis. There are FOUR ski mountains less than an hour drive away! Snowmobiling trails, and cross country trails abound. Available for summer rental at Seasonal rate.
