Description: Chilly Vermont may evoke warm fires rather than luxurious swimming pools, but a wonderful little lap pool fits this magnificent, rustic home like a glove. There's also an attached steam bath and dry sauna.

The place is constructed with massive Montana lodge-pole pine logs and local quarried stone. There are wonderful fireplaces, as well as big decks and balconies inside and out. The home's many eccentric and cozy spaces add to its charm, as do the lovely mountain views from its slope-side location.

Ludlow is a former mill town in southern Vermont, about three hours from Boston and four from New York. For recreation, there's skiing in the winter, golf in the spring and summer and leaf-peeping in the fall.
