Stannard Mountain Forest is a premiere recreational forest with extensive privacy, long range views and adjacent state land, as well as abundant wildlife and large game, providing opportunities for hunting and exploring from an off-grid cabin in the property's center. The property is accessed off of a quiet town road with a private, gated road into the center of the forest. Positioned on the northern slopes of Stannard Mountain, the property has gently sloping terrain with long-range views of many local landmarks including Caspian Lake, Flagg Pond, Jay Peak and Mount Mansfield. The large acreage provides extensive privacy and recreation. The highlight of the forest is the easily accessible, but remote, cabin site. Here, the views can be enjoyed from the porch of the new, off-grid cabin. Inside are two rooms; a garage sits adjacent. This location offers pure solitude free from noise pollution. Steam Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area is 10,000 acres and borders the property for 1.4 miles on two sides. This vast, undeveloped acreage supports active large mammal populations including black bear, moose, coyote and white-tailed deer. In the northern portion of the land, spruce and fir are common, along with maple, ash, birch, and aspen. The balance of the forest resource is dominated by hardwood species, such as sugar maple, beech, birch and red maple. Timber harvesting occurred last in 2007; no commercial forestry activity is necessary over the next 15 years.
