Get away to the perfect Vermont vacation rental, escape to the country and the Rye Chalet in Wells, Vermont.
Olie and Jinny Rye built the chalet in 1968 when Olie retired from International Paper Company. It was designed by Jinny, who took full advantage of the gorgeous southerly view over Hidden Valley's miles of hills, fields and streams into the next state.
Artisan stonemason Simon Shultz created magnificent two-story stone columns to support the huge wrap-around deck and, at the heart of the chalet, a spectacular three-story stone core with two fireplaces. A charming custom spiral staircase connects all three floors.
Olie and Jinny loved sitting on the deck and watching the sunset. If Olie was out walking in the woods or pitching with his 9-iron, Jinny rang the big train bell to summon him for meals. You can use the bell to call your friends and family.
Vermont's famous fresh country air comes from 20 acres of tranquil woodlands surrounding this spacious, comfortable, cheery country rental house. Lake St. Catherine is just five minutes away.
The beautifully decorated and completely furnished house, with 3600 square feet of living space, offers several gathering areas -- two separate living rooms, a large game table area, a dining area and a sociable kitchen and counter. (See our photo gallery.) It is marvelous for retreats, reunions, family gatherings, writers, artists and other contemplative endeavors. Because it has one bedroom and full bath on each of the three floors, it is great for three couples, one per floor.
Because you’ll be on vacation, there are games galore, hundreds of well-chosen books and over 200 movies on video. Guided hiking, hunting and/or fishing tours can be arranged for an additional fee -- for all levels from child to expert.
For the Vermont vacation rental of your dreams, welcome to the country and to the Rye Chalet. We know your time here will be everything you want it to be.
