Historic properties close to winter activities a unique way to celebrate winter
This winter, try something different for your seasonal getaway. Instead of a ski resort or condo community, rent one of the unique historic homes owned by the Landmark Trust USA. On the historic Scott Farm, there’s the cozy one-bedroom Sugarhouse and an 1849 farmhouse that sleeps up to eight, both with expansive views and access to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking. The 1802 Amos Brown House sleeps six, and you can walk out your front door to hike, ski, snowshoe or go snowmobiling. You’re also half an hour to skiing and snowboarding at Mount Snow. Larger groups can rent Rudyard Kipling’s four-bedroom Naulakha home and the nearby Carriage House, both of which are 10 minutes from Brattleboro’s shops, restaurants and brew pubs.
