Birdseye Mountain, Vermont Is For Sale For $1.9 Million


I have to be honest with you all, the first time I had heard of Birdseye Mountain was just this past summer, the summer of 2020. It was only because another person posted photos of a hike up the mountain and I thought, ""Hey, I think I could do that hike." It was after thinking that to myself that I did a little more research and found out that the property was once a ski hill. Who knew? I never did get a chance to make the hike, but if I could pick up the property, I could hike it all of the time!

Now, am I in the position to actually buy a mountain and start Ski Rex Media Mountain Resort? No, I'm not, but it is nice to dream. Let's take a look at the property and see what that dream could be made of.

It's not a bad location, nor is it a bad price for that much land, though the resort itself closed down in 1967. It would be starting from scratch for anyone who dared to take on such a project, which I would love to do. A small ski resort on the main highway right between New York and Vermont, with Killington and Pico, just spitting distance away. It could be the golden ski triangle of central-east Vermont.

The location is decent, just as the listing describes, though not in the listing is the mountain's proximity to Lake Bomoseen, which is just up the road to the north of Castleton. Even if one couldn't make this work as a ski hill, again, it could work very well as a summer resort. There would be tons of potential for a hiking, camping, and mountain biking spot.

One could also just buy up the property and turn it into their own personal compound. That could be fun, too. Especially if one were into those outdoor sports. Imagine having your own home compound, complete with biking in the summer & fall, and skiing or riding in the winter & spring.

It could be an amazing place for a few different reasons. If you would like to take a look at the property in more detail, there are more pictures and information on the listing, which is located below. If you'd like to take a first-hand look, it's really not hard to find. I've now seen it more times than I can count.
