A Home For All Seasons In Groton State Forest

For any outdoor enthusiasts, Vermont is an incredible place to vacation or live. In the Northeast Kingdom we have a myriad of places to enjoy nature. One of the largest natural wonderlands in the State of Vermont is Groton State Forest.  There are over 26,000 acres of trails, mountains, wildlife, lakes, ponds, and more! The endless list of activities is enjoyed throughout the year, such as hiking, swimming, fishing, skiing, horse back riding, snowshoeing, and so much more!

The most recent sport to be included in the winter fun is the addition of fat biking trails. Fat bikes (bikes with over-sized tires to give the ability to ride over unstable ground) allow mountain bikers to enjoy the sport year-round. In 2016 the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation teamed up with VMBA and VAST and created a pilot fatbiking program in several state parks including three in Groton State Forest. Click here to check out the map of the trails (zoom in to Groton State Forest and click on the snowflakes to view the trails). The program has been going strong and the team is hoping in the future to host events at Seyon Lodge for rides and demos.
 
Currently I have a wonderful “year round home” listed for sale that is surrounded by “year round” Groton State Forest.  This log house is a perfect balance of the comforts of home and feeling like a get-away.  The biggest perk of the property is that it has 330 feet of frontage on Lake Groton! The lot is just over an acre and offers enough privacy at the end of a quiet road. Lake Groton is approximately 422 acres. The lake is long and somewhat narrow but large enough to offer ample water related activities!
 

 
Walk into the home and you’ll notice how light and airy it feels due in part to the cathedral ceiling over the main living space, light wood interior, and many windows facing the lake. A great house for hosting gatherings with it’s spacious kitchen that is open to the dining room and living room or barbequing on the waterside deck. There will be room for the whole gang with 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a finished lower level that offers a second kitchen, family room, and doors that lead right to the backyard and lake. 
 
Live here year-round, make it a vacation home, or a vacation rental for an investment with the bonus of being able to use it yourself.  Although a waterfront home on Lake Groton is just a fun fantasy for some, the good news is that we all have access to the wonders of Groton State Forest.

Are You Pondering a Pond?

It may not have been the hottest (or the driest) summer in the Northeast Kingdom, but it was still a beautiful one. It was also one of the busiest in real estate we’ve seen in the last few years – and it’s still going strong! Recently, the team at Tim Scott Real Estate has listed several properties with private ponds. What better way to spend Vermont summers at home with your own place to swim, fish, or just relax by the water?

350 Partridge Lane, Danville


This country home on 19+/- acres has a private setting but is just a few miles to Danville village. The expansive back deck overlooks the backyard and pond. Surrounded by perennials, this home is perfect for those who love to entertain!

299 Maple Lane, Danville

Love to play outside? Here is a 34.5+/- property with so much to offer! Not only does it have a pretty stone landscape pond near the spacious home, there is a larger swimming pond on the lower property. Next to the big pond is a tree house that is solar powered. Fire-pits, patio, deck, sauna, hot tub, pool, fields, barn, outbuilding and close to LV Rail Trail!

1353 Hines Place, Walden

Here is a property for the nature enthusiast! Land borders Steam Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area - over 10,000 acres of state owned land! Solar-powered home is on 20.5+/- and has a large spring-fed pond. Large outbuildings for your toys!

651 Sutton Road, Wheelock

This well-maintained ranch style home is on a 5.3+/- acre lot, faces a pretty view, has lots of perennials, and a perfect little pond in the backyard. Sliding doors from the kitchen area lead to a rear deck which makes for easy outdoor eating. 

263 Bedor Lane, St. Johnsbury

The pond on this property is located next to the 4-stall horse barn and is just one of the many appealing features. Colonial home faces an amazing mountain view, has an attached 2-car garage, a riding ring, on 31.44+/- acres!

Own a Piece of Peacham History with Mack's Mountain Farm

I believe few would argue with the statement that Peacham is a very charming Vermont town. Settled in 1776 the village has a pretty view of the mountains, the delightful Peacham Café, and streets lined with eye-catching historic homes. Many of these houses have small signs on their front lawn stating the year it was built and the name of the house. It is no wonder why so many flock to Peacham to photograph its beauty, especially during the foliage. The community-oriented town holds many festivals such as a Fall Foliage Festival and the Fourth of July Tractor Parade. During such events, these “Historic Homes of Peacham” are often an attraction and photographed by tourists and locals. The neighborly homeowners often welcome spectators… just another alluring trait of Peacham.

 You may be familiar with the book “Historic Homes of Peacham”. This beautiful hard-covered book was created by members of Peacham’s Historical Homes Committee. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend checking it out. A copy can be purchased through the Peacham Historical Association , at the Peacham Corner Guild (open seasonally)  or the Peacham Library. The book has wonderful old photographs and gives you a glimpse into the history of the many homes we admire.

 Recently TSRE listed a property about half way up Mack’s Mountain on Lanesboro Road. This antique home is featured in the book titled “Mack’s Mountain Farm”. The house was built in the early 1800s. When you compare the two photos it’s apparent the house has changed since the first photo taken in 1880, as houses often do. According to the write-up, the home is a Classic Cottage but “…the door surround is unusual. It features three-quarter-length sidelights with clapboarding continuing beneath them and a wood lintel atop the door and sidelights.” The house still features the three-quarter sidelights.

 The property has had many owners since the first recorded owner Moses Watts in 1792. After 200+ years, it’s hard to say for certain which house details are original and what was added over the years. Yet, it is obvious much of the character of this home is antique. Hand hewn beams have been exposed in the ceiling of the living room and kitchen, there are wide-board floors, wainscoting, built-ins, and so on. This home has been loved but is ready for the next home-owner who appreciates the character of an old Vermont farmhouse and can give it the attention it needs.  The house sits on 40 +/- acres and is enrolled in Current Use which helps with the cost of property taxes. Click here to view the listing.

 On the topic of “Historic Homes of Peacham” there is another TSRE listing featured in the book. On page 30 you’ll find “Hobart’s Barn” one of the oldest barns in Peacham. “Hobart’s Barn” is in the village and on the lot of 480 Bayley Hazen Road. The home was built in 1819 and has a perfect combination of antique details and modern updates. You can check out that listing here.

 I want to extend a big thank you to the Peacham Historical Association for keeping the history of Peacham alive in the community.
