The Ascutney Mountain Resort in stunning Vermont is a standalone vacation resort close by the area’s ski trails. Set in beautiful countryside well away from trappings of the modern world such as restaurants and supermarkets, it’s the quintessential get-away-from-it-all destination for those desperate for total peace and quiet.
The timeshare accommodation is set in well-kept grounds in several buildings, with amenities such as the sports club with is yoga classes, pool and gym a short walk away. At night, the lack of noise is deafening and the stars are myriad and glittering, giving a rare experience to timeshare owners. The resort is extremely popular during the fall, with many visitors arriving for the glorious colours of the autumn foliage.
Previously the Orange Lake Resorts Group, the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Timeshares at Brownsville is a points-based venture offering three-bedroomed, three bath apartments in attractive buildings overlooking a lake or the forested slopes of the foothills around Mount Ascutney.
Spacious, cosy and well-fitted out and furnished, the living area boasts a fireplace for chilly nights and air-conditioning for summer visits, a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a separate dining area and en-suite facilities in the bedrooms. Traditional furnishings make the apartments a home from home and an LCD TV and DVD gives favourite channels and the chance to rent movies.
The complex offers a good selection of facilities, including a heated swimming pool, tennis and racquetball courts, a fully-functional gym and fitness centre, a spa and a hot tub. For those of whom expect a few games of golf during a vacation, there’s a rated course nearby, and winter visitors can enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing on good snow.
The great outdoors here comprises 150 acres of stunning mountain beauty, criss-crossed by hiking, biking, trekking and walking trails. Rushing streams, sparkling little lakes and wildernesses with bird and wildlife delights including deer are all found here, far from the noise and bustle of other popular winter tourist destinations.
Charming Brownsville, the nearest habitation, lies at the foot of Mount Ascutney and is a traditional Vermont settlement with heritage homes and a single general store selling everything from food staples to sheep-wool hats. The village is part of the town of West Windsor, and is one of its very few urban areas. Exploring the remoteness of lovely Ascutney State Park in spring and summer is an unforgettable experience.
