The SpaceWelcome to Belmont Treetops - your perfect getaway in the lush beauty of the Green Mountains. We are located in Belmont (Mount Holly) with easy travel time to Okemo. And when you are not skiing, we have access to more than 25 acres of trails for snowshoeing behind our house.
Although we are located in a classic quaint Vermont village, we are only minutes away from all the activities that make Vermont wonderful. In the summer and fall there is kayaking, hiking, biking, summer concerts, great theater, and restaurants. Of course, in the winter there is skiing, skating, and snowshoeing.
****Please note: THREE DAY MINIMUM for all holiday weekends (Labor Day, Columbus Day, New Year's, President's wkend, Memorial Day, July 4th), vacation weeks and, when available, during the summer - from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend.***
This new large studio loft is only seven years old and is ideal for a ski vacation, summer holiday, romantic getaway, writer's retreat, or fall foliage tour. The loft has open space, high ceilings, glass, and is furnished with antiques and cozy furniture. The best part - you feel like you are living in a treehouse as you look out over the treetops to the mountains. We're family friendly but we've also been told that Belmont Treetops is a wonderfully romantic place to stay. Writers and those seeking quiet away from their busy lives have found this to be a place they love coming back to year after year.
The partitioned sleeping area has a queen bed and is surrounded by partial walls and etched glass for privacy. A pullout couch has a full bed. There is a fully-equipped kitchen including dishwasher and microwave and stocked with all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils you will need. Full bath with Restoration Hardware plush towels. All sheets are provided too. There is also Wifi and a bluetooth speaker in the studio. And our guests always enjoy the homemade treats and cheese and crackers we leave for them upon their arrival!
You are an easy 1.5 mile scenic walk on a tree-lined country dirt road to the charming Belmont Village, store, and Star Lake. You can start your day with a walk to the store and pick up your morning coffee and newspaper (in the winter it can be a winter wonderland with snow covered trees forming a canopy over the road). There is also an old-fashioned library, with a wide selection of books, and a local museum in town.
If you don't want to eat at home using the fully equipped kitchen, there are restaurants as close as ten minutes away. Also nearby is the famous Vermont Country Store in Weston where you will discover hard-to-find items and an impossible to resist selection of candies, cheeses, jams, and other delicious food items.
