Unplug, relax on peaceful grounds. The winter months envelop you in whiteness of snow. Read a book, finish your novel. Bring snow shoes or x-country skis to trek through the forest on the property trail. Check out Strafford or Woodstock Nordic Centers, Quechee Ski Area. Local downhill ski areas: Suicide Six and Dartmouth Skiway. See websites for info.
There is plenty to see and do as you radiate out from home base: great day trips, historical sites, dining.
