ON TOP OF THE WORLD! Imagine sipping your morning coffee while over looking Killington Peak to ponder what your ski day will hold. Sited on a broad plateau at 2450 feet in elevation, you have sweeping 180 eagle views from the Canadian border to the north to Killington Peak & beyond to the south. This is an easy flowing house that centers around the beautiful country kitchen with the dining room and living rooms radiating out to take advantage of the views. The spacious master suite is located on the main floor with additional bedrooms on the top and bottom floors. The covered deck is a wonderful place to sit back and watch a summer storm roll thru the valley below. You have 128 acres of untouched forest to play in. Including a beautiful a ridge of Spruce trees with that wonderful smell and the soft, easy to navigate, underforest to walk around in. After a week in the city this is your retreat to unwind in. This one of kind property is located within a mile (as the eagle flies) of the first of 2 outstanding golf courses in Killington; while Kent Pond, a local favorite for fishing and kayaking is very close. Also, both the Long Trail and the Appalachian Trail pass through Killington and are easy to access. Restaurants and nightclubs are close by if you ever want to leave your mountain sanctuary.
Killington was chartered on July 7th 1761 from a New Hampshire land grant. In 1800, the residents of Killington changed the name to Sherburne after a popular landholder: Colonel Benjamin Sherburne. The town voted to return back to its original name of Killington at the March 2nd town meeting in 1999. This was approved by the Vermont General Assembly and the town became Killington once again on July 1, 1999.
The town is home to the largest ski area east of the Mississippi River with Killington and Pico Mountains. Preston Smith began the Sherburne Corporation and started construction of the ski area in 1957 on lease land from the state and opened on December 13, 1958. Killington was a pioneer in snowmaking and grooming, eventually becoming the ski area with the longest season in the country.
The town is also home to the Killington Mountain School, a private ski academy dedicated to the education and training of many of today's US Ski Team members. The town operates the Killington Elementary School which consistently is ranked as one of the top elementary schools in Vermont.
While the town today is built around the ski industry, there is also a vibrant outdoor lifestyle in town. There are two public golf courses in town along with public tennis, baseball fields, soccer fields and the local town pool.
The town is the cross-roads for the Long Trail (runs north & south) and the Appalachian Trail (running south then east) providing hikers with a myriad of day hikes or more. Hiking and mountain biking abound at the ski areas and in the neighboring towns. Like to fish or kayak? There are two small lakes in town that are stocked by the state, as well as larger lakes just south on Route 100.
Weekly outdoor concerts at the ski area and the town Library are a great way to relax and enjoy the summer evenings. Additionally, both the town and the ski area sponsor events such as the Killington Wine Festival, The Biggest Loser run/walk and the Spartan Race to name just a few. Other summer events throughout Central Vermont make Killington the ideal central location for everything Vermont.
