"This is the most peaceful place I have ever known. The vistas in three directions are breathtaking still after living here since 2002. Walking the trails in the woods is one of my favorite leisure activities. Observing the wildlife during all seasons is a source of great joy, and the evening sky is wonderful to enjoy year round. This home feels private and secluded and yet the town of Poultney is 5 minutes away and all the roads are major roads. This has been the perfect home." -Current Owner
