Luxurious bohemian style overlooking one of the most epic views in the Green Mountains. Surrounded by 25,000 acres of National Forest and complete seclusion, yet just a short ride from several towns.
Spacious, immaculate, modern home with rustic beams and gorgeous wood floors. Each of the three bedrooms (and baths!) have a wonderful view. The master bedroom is massive and has sweeping views out over the Battell Wilderness and the Long Trail. The front of the cottage is a wall of windows overlooking a beautiful pond and the Green Mountain National Forest. No light pollution. No noise except for the tree frogs and the sound of the White River rushing over the rocks far below in the hollow.
It's worth mentioning that Breadloaf Mountain Cottage was a gift that I am grateful for. I still can't believe that I am so lucky to be able to enjoy it frequently. Please understand that those sweeping, epic views you see all around you when you are there, come at a price. Being perched atop a mountain in the wilderness has obvious benefits, but due to frequently changing weather, access and utilities are sometimes a bit more tricky than something in town. Please be prepared to be patient with the weather and the WIFI. While my internet is as good as anywhere in Vermont, it is a rural network and is likely more quirky than urban or suburban utilities. I have a 20mbps service.
Breadloaf Mountain Cottage is at the top of a ridge that runs parallel to scenic Route 100. It sits at about 1600 feet above sea level. While completely secluded, it is just 1.3 mile to the Granville Store, and just a few minutes more to Hancock, Rochester and Warren. You could spend weeks just exploring the hiking, biking, swimming and fishing opportunities right from the property!
Breadloaf Mountain Cottage is located on Forest Road 55, just off scenic Route 100. While it is easily accessible year round, a 4X4 or AWD vehicle is highly recommended in snow and mud. Quality AT or snow rated tires are a must in the winter. This is true generally in Vermont. Come prepared.

I have been visiting Vermont for a long time. I was introduced to Vermont on a road trip with my parents while I was in my teens. Vermont seemed magical compared to the Ozark region of southern Missouri, where I grew up. I had never seen mountains, let alone ski slopes and the sparkly winters of storybooks. I had never experienced historic architecture, and I knew little of the East Coast or the role it had played in the founding of our nation. I fell in love with New England then, not knowing I would someday be back and call it my home.
I moved to Boston when I was about 20, I think. I absorbed the city for about 4 years and then followed my wanderlust to Europe for a spell, working for a bicycle tour company. I got homesick and came back to Boston knowing I needed to "get on with it", although I hadn't a clue what that meant. I worked for a summer on the commuter ferries in Boston Harbor and studied for my real estate exam. I passed my test, and created, The Boston Home Team and a 20+ year career in real estate.
As a young adult, I spent my summers camping along Vermont's rivers and climbing its mountains. I dreamed of owning my own home here someday. Now I do. A new adventure has begun.
