195 Derby Hill Road, Rupert, Vermont –  with the best views in Vermont

This exceptionally private 18-acre resort–type compound, nestled high on a mountain and integrated seamlessly into the tranquil landscape is perfect for a multi-generational family, more than one family or a corporate retreat. Views of the Mettowee Valley and the mountains beyond is captivating at all hours and in all weather and every season. Feel the mountain breathe, live in the fresh, crisp air, drink excellent well water, enjoy this spectacular view and, at night, gaze at thousands of bright stars in the truly dark sky.

The design of the buildings and landscaping captures casual function, comfort and convenience with easy flow to the outdoors. There are many tastefully and thoughtfully designed spaces for privacy, togetherness and all ages – with all the amenities of a resort.
