A private road leads through an allee of trees and away from road noise to a gracious, totally restored, 1910 home that was once the owner's residence of former Red Fox Music Camp. The sensitive 1998 restoration included the seven-bedroom, five-bath main house with five field stone and brick fireplaces, a large country kitchen with a large woodstove and provisions and butler's pantries, along with two enchanting sleeping cabins and all mechanicals. Most notable is the 2009 addition of what's ref erred to as the Pizza Hut - an architect-designed four-season dining pavilion with a stone pizza oven imported from Italy, full kitchen, woodstove, powder room, outdoor shower, and huge bluestone patio - all separated from the main house by a large

Privately tucked away around the corner from Ski Butternut and down a long drive, is this quintessential ski lodge that's been expanded over the years to host guests in all seasons. The inviting warm interior calls for group dinners in the dining room overlooking the lawn and woods, then relax after out at the fire pit or in the cathedral living room with a big fireplace and a loft. The later family room addition was built to be a possible first floor master suite, and there's another upstairs, along with guest rooms and bath. The basement was finished for kids to bounce off the walls and to house winter and summer sports equipment - directly accessed from outside. This home has been a beloved gathering place for friends escaping the city,
