Located a short 8 minute drive from Stratton Mountain Resort, at $4,900,000 the aptly named Mountain House is a contemporary ski chalet with nary an antler in sight. Built in 2002, the 8,720 square-foot abode embraces the steep landscape with a multi-level structure that uses lots of timber and 18-foot floor to ceiling windows. Situated on 140 acres, the curved home boasts an open floor plan, a huge built-in bookcase, and three fireplaces. Wrap-around decks combine with the glass-timber aesthetic to create a tree-house effect: the interior is nothing but blue skies, green leaves, and views galore. There's also 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a massive kitchen, a home theater, tennis and basketball courts, and a spa room, in case you feel like holing up for a few weeks.
