About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 Adults plus 1-2 children in the loft

COME TO VERMONT FOR A QUIET WEEKEND, NEARBY SKIING, CONCERTS - AND STAY IN THIS LOVELY QUIET VILLAGE AND WALK TO DINING. BOOK YOUR SKI HOLIDAY - ONLY 20 MIN TO OKEMO, BROMLEY & MAGIC, AND A BIT MORE TO STRATTON AND KILLINGTON

Located on a small hill within the village, overlooking a stream in the front, and a brook and view behind the house, this 1830 cape, completely refurbished, has 4 bedrooms (1 downstairs bedroom with bath and 2 upstairs bedrooms, plus a sleeping loft overlooking the living room), accommodating 6, plus 1-2 children in the sleeping loft which is accessible only through one of the bedrooms. The attached barn is completely finished as a living room, opening onto a very private deck that overlooks a brook and a waterfall in the village, and distant hills beyond. The deck is great for evening meals outdoors in warmer weather, cooked on the small gas grill, or just relaxing and reading a book.

Only a 5-minute walk from the Weston Playhouse (summer theater), the famed Vermont Country Store, an art gallery, and two fine restaurants (The Inn at Weston and Bryant House). Also there are concerts at Kinhaven Music School (summer) and at the Weston Priory (year round). Skiing is 15 minutes to Bromley and Magic Mountain, 20 minutes to Okemo, 25 minutes to Stratton, and 40 minutes to Killington. Cross country skiing (Wild Wings) and horse drawn sleigh rides are 10 minutes away as are Yoga classes. Only 35 minutes to Manchester with outlet shopping, and a bit further to the charming villages of Dorset and Grafton (cross country skiing).

Recently refurbished, with a modern kitchen and two new bathrooms including a large tiled shower with two heads and a tiled bench seat. Plenty of water pressure! High speed internet is on 24x7. There is cable TV and cell service at the house.

There is so much to do from this house without having to drive. In early October there is the Weston Antiques Show, and the following weekend, the Weston Craft Show. In December there is a Christmas Bazaar Nov. 28-29 at the Playhouse and 'Christmas in Weston' on Dec. 6 with sleigh rides that will delight children.

In late June to Early September there is exceptional theater 5 nights a week at the Weston Playhouse, and post-theater entertainment at the Playhouse Cabaret on select evenings. There are concerts at the Church on the Hill 6 times during the summer on Sundays at 4 pm, conveniently located nearby. And there is excellent dining at the Inn at Weston and Bryant House, all within walking distance.

There are fascinating lectures on the first Wednesday of each month, in nearby Manchester and Rutland (35 min), or in funky Brattleboro (45 min) where there are some great restaurants (Korean, Thai, organic and regular fare.

Spend 3 nights, or a month here and decompress in comfort, enjoy skiing or hiking, and a bit of culture!

About Andy and Jean

We live about 1/3 mile away on the edge of the Village of Weston.

Andy and Jean purchased this house in 2007

Why Andy and Jean chose Weston

My sister and her husband used to own the Inn at Weston at one time so we've spent many years in the village. Weston is one of the prettiest villages in Vermont, with a lovely town green ringed by many historic houses, and the Weston Playhouse, all within walking distance. We like being surrounded by a brook behind the house, a stream across the road, and a river/waterfall that can be seen and heard from the deck.

What makes this house unique

The sound of water . . . and the short walk to the playhouse, the Vermont Country Store, the art gallery, dining at the Bryant house and the Inn at Weston.

There are lovely gardens in front and alongside the house. There is complete privacy on the deck overlooking the brook.

A hidden gem near all the ski resorts!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so quaint and welcoming. We went for a long ski weekend and it was perfect. Andy was very accommodating and everything was super easy. We had great family dinners in the beautiful kitchen after a long day at the ski slopes. Walking distance to great shops and a couple of nice restaurants. We are hoping to be back next year.

Perfect ski getaway rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at “the White House” as our daughter referred to it. It was stocked with all we needed and was a great location to both Okemo and Stratton. We walked down to the Vermont country store as well which was just down the road. Would stay here again with no questions asked. We loved to barn living room and all the natural light to spend our mornings in. Thanks again for the hospitality!

A wonderful property

We had a wonderful stay in this home. It was very comfortable, immaculately clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with the pots and pans we needed to cook with. A very cozy place to stay! I can’t wait to return!

Very nice Vermont Farm house

  • 4 of 5

Overall was very nice and comfortable. Downstairs bathroom needs a few upgrades ie, towel hooks, real and larger mirror and a table to place toiletries etc. other than that it was a very nice and comfortable home. Would stay there again.

The key attractions are the well-known Weston Playhouse which offers theater and musicals from late June to early September.

Also, the Weston Priory, which holds services year round, is well known for their singing monks.

Kinhaven holds concerts featuring faculty on Friday evening and talented performing students on Saturday evening. Free and inspiring!

The Vermont Country Store, one of Vermont's most intriguing retail stores, has a large store with 3 minutes walk from the house. It is attractively located in older homes that have been interconnected and feature their unusual items including food, clothing, gifts, kitchen items, and many items you may not have seen for 50 years!

Bryant House, next to the Vermont Country Store, offers lunch and dinner on select days. Mildred's is a quaint snack bar operated in summer, and is also operated by the Vermont Country Store.

The Village Market has a deli counter offering breakfast and lunch items as well as a variety of grocery items, plus gas.
