Vermont Ski House at Bromley Mountain

Are you looking for the perfect vacation home? This four bedroom, 3 ½ bath is located in Peru, VT next to Bromley Ski Mountain and sleeps 10. With a stunning view of Stratton Mountain, the home is available for one week during a mutually agreed upon date. The fully furnished and equipped home is the perfect Ski house or a fun summer vacation getaway—ideal for hiking, playing at the Bromley Fun park, visiting Hildene or other places in Vermont. Bromley Village has a swimming pool and tennis courts and the clubhouse has reliable wifi.   Manchester is 10 miles away filled with restaurants, shopping outlets, and nationally recognized Northshire Books, independent bookstore. The house does not have wifi, or cable but there’s a television with DVD player.

Great Diamond Island Casco Bay Home

Ready for a relaxing vacation? Enjoy a week on an island in beautiful Casco Bay, Maine, on Great Diamond Island.  Take a ferry from Portland — no cars allowed!  The house has water views and is an easy walk from the Diamond Cove dock.  There are also two kayaks you can take out into the Bay.  The house is one of four units in what was originally the Quartermasters at Fort McKinley.  Open floor plan downstairs, with a total of four bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths.  In the summer, there are three restaurants open on the island, and some old school entertainment:  a pool, tennis courts, duck pin bowling.  Poor cell coverage on island, and while there’s WiFi at the house, there is no cable TV.  You’ll be mostly off the grid while on the island, so this is not for the workaholic!  While there’s not much to do but relax, Portland, with its great restaurants and shopping, is just a 30-minute ferry ride away.
