Ski House Rising

Here's something that was news to is Homemade Bread Day.  Who doesn't love homemade bread...and would there be anything better during apres-ski than to enjoy the aroma of homemade bread baking?  Well, here's a place where they just might be doing that right now -- because this ski house has an authentic brick oven / bread oven right in the kitchen!  The Ski House of the Day is the KV Ranch near Mount Snow, Vermont.  You can't miss the fantastic brick oven in this huge, Vermont country kitchen:

Like the bread itself, the bread oven looks like it's done some rising of its stretches from the floor past the balcony and all the way to very tall ceiling.  Although there's also a beautiful (and also very tall) fireplace in the living room area, to me it looks like the brick oven is the heart of the house.
Here's a close-up (I know, looks like pizza going in, but you can see how great this bread oven is!):

According to the rental site, this "ranch" is actually a restored 1790's barn....

 ...and the high ceilings make that dramatically obvious:

How's this for breaking bread?  Check out the legs on the table and benches (re-purposed barn posts?):

I'd imagine that the delicious aroma from the bread oven rising up by this ping-pong table is pretty sweet:

This unique, spacious house is 4,500 sq. ft. in size, and includes six bedrooms, plus 3 1/2 bathrooms...

...and a nice view of the ski slopes:

Since it's Homemade Bread Day, I might actually make a loaf of homemade bread today...I just wish I were able to watch it rising in front of this view, and then watch it baking it in the brick bread oven in this ski house!
