LOVELY historical house in bucolic setting

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over long weekend for my son's graduation at Dartmouth. It was a bit of a drive but beautiful and worth it! We enjoyed the historical appointments and setting very much. The house has double beds which were a challenge to my 6 foot plus husband and son. We were a little hot at night due to the weather. HOWEVER, the fireflies made up for that! Also, there is one working shower, with half bath upstairs. Lastly, internet is advertised, but there is none.

Good place for a great price.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very helpful after our vehicle broke down. The place is very antique. One thing that would be nice is some couches to relax on. The current ones are more like a wide padded chair. The dolls were a nice compliment...

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house combines very nice antique touches (furniture, art, copper tub, flooring, ceiling beams, etc) with modern comforts (comfortable beds, washing machine, shower, etc). The property is quite large and has spectacular views. We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Diann's home was amazing and gave us a sense of VT that we wouldn't have gotten if we stood anyplace else. From waking up early to the view and driving in the snow to the country store for breakfast supplies the whole weekend was great. We would definitely visit and stay here again.

Awesome experience & beautiful stay @ VT farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

I just got home to NJ from an amazing weekend in the most beautiful Vershire farmhouse and I already booked another weekend stay there for July! Everything was perfect. The owner took care of everything we could have possibly needed and more. The house was beautiful and all the kids loved the awesome land which they could run and play on all day.

I would highly recommend a relaxing weekend at the farmhouse where we sat on the porch in the evening and saw a beautiful sunset. It was so quiet, peaceful, fresh and clean. We enjoyed hiking and bird watching and taking in the breathtaking scenery!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great experience at this farmhouse. It is very comfortable and antique elegant at the same time. We enjoyed hanging out in the large eat-in kitchen and we also had a family celebration dinner in the formal dining room. There are a total of 5 comfortable double beds in 4 bedrooms, and the description posted is accurate.

The owner is a very thoughtful and attentive manager of the property, and is quite respected and well known in that part of Vermont.

The meadows on this property are gorgeous - so carefully maintained! Hiking up to the top of the upper meadow reveals a beautiful view across Vermont and into New Hampshire.

Nearby, in Post Mills Vermont, there is an excellent farm and farm stand called Cross Road Farm. If you visit between Memorial Day and October 10 or so, it is a good experience. (Right near Lake Fairlee, which is also a beautiful place.)

Quite frankly, you can't go wrong with this choice - my family highly recommends it to anyone looking for a beautiful experience in this part of Vermont.
