Your Winter Getaway awaits at the Waverly Mansion!

Family-friendly vacation home in Waverly with water park
Looking for your next winter getaway? Step back in time to an era of elegance and luxury at our turn-of-the-century hilltop mansion estate. The tree-lined driveway greets you as our 29-acre wooded getaway becomes your private oasis for magical winter fun. Built in 1912 and delicately restored in 2013, this stately 4-bedroom, 5,800 square feet estate, includes a large fieldstone patio, 4 indoor fireplaces and all the land you need to enjoy the peaceful outdoors.

Affectionately known as the Waverly Mansion, you’ll find 2 primary suites with en suite bathrooms and 2 large additional bedrooms in this 5,800 square foot, one-of-a-kind fieldstone estate. Vintage antiques, pre-war charm, and Queen Anne character abound in this comfortable, quiet, and peaceful home. Formally the summer home of prominent corporate lawyer, Arthur Dunn, this is where his wife and five children spent their summers and where he developed a scientific dairy and fruit farm.

THE SPACE
Two, glass-enclosed sitting rooms, one off one of the primary suites and another on the ground floor with a wood-burning fireplace, bring an element of charm to the space that we adore. A step back in time, you’ll get to experience original wainscoting, meticulous woodworking details with many of the bathroom features and windows are original to the home. Naturally filled light shines through many of the rooms, with 3 additional indoor wood-burning fireplaces to cozy up with in the fall and winter months.

Looking to entertain? A formal dining room that seats 6 is ready for you with a well-appointed and spacious kitchen, butler’s pantry and separate dining area, often used as a breakfast nook. The first floor boasts a stately library with a billiard table, books to read and games to play; you’ll feel right at home in the cozy section of the mansion.

Perhaps what we love the most is the expansive patio that runs the length of the home next to the outdoor firepit. It’s the perfect spot to sit, read, relax, and enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains around you. The lush-green grounds are well-maintained around the home and a short walk takes you into wooded evergreen mountains to explore. Our private spot welcomes many wildlife who are very comfortable galivanting around the estate. We provide wood complimentary for both the outdoor firepit and the indoor fireplaces. There is also a gas grill and a large capacity washer/dryer for your use.

Because of its size (the Waverly Mansion sleeps up to 10 guests), it’s the perfect for family gatherings and reunions, private retreats or an elegant entertaining space for bridal parties who are getting married at one of the many local wedding venues. Want the enjoy the entire space for yourself or share it with a few friends for a relaxing retreat or a girl’s getaway? That option is also available to you! Whether you need to entertain, rest, rejuvenate, or relax, you’ll find everything you need in the privacy of your own estate.

Magical Place frozen in time
We have spent a long weekend at the house while skiing at Elk mountains. A perfect location for my family, with an abundance of space and very private gardens surrounding it. The interiors are historically kept and the house is oh so charming. You really feel like you stepped into 1920. I love that it was dog-friendly and that the downstairs had no TV (each bedroom has private TV) as it allowed us to play games and read in front of the many fireplaces. Don't think twice, just rent it. We visit in the winter but will definitely be back in the summer and fall.

Like going back in time!
This house is amazing. Everything was just as described if not better. Sandy made staying there simple and did all she could to make us comfortable. Her breakfast starts the day right. Great location, convenient to anything you may need, but once you turn in the driveway you are brought back in time and nature. Would definitely do it again!
