The Hermitage Club, An Exclusive Ski Community in Southern Vermont
We are working on an exciting new timber frame home being built on Stag's Leap development at an exclusive members-only community, The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain located in West Dover, Vermont (pictured above, photo provided by The Hermitage Club). While The Hermitage Club is known mostly, for Haystack Mountain and it's ski community, it also is appealing to those who want to enjoy all four seasons Vermont has to offer! Whether you want to ski without the crowds, enjoy luxury amenities like fine dining and a day at the spa, or golf at your leisure, the Hermitage Club is a wonderful gem to escape to on the weekends. The Hermitage Club offers a quaint community with a New England village style atmosphere.
Beautiful Timber Frame Barn in Vermont
History of Barns: Barn raisings were very popular during the 18th and 19th centuries and typically all "able" men would gather together to assist with the building of a barn. In fact, a barn raising didn't just include the men, but also the women, who would be hard at work preparing the food for the crew. The children would stand by and often fetch the necessary tools for the crew. Although barns are rarely built this way anymore, you can still get the feel of a good old fashion barn going up by attending a timber frame raising!
