About the property

Modern Condo In A Charming Farmhouse, 25 Acres - 5 Miles To Okemo

Awe-inspiring views and a peaceful vibe come together at The Big Barn Farm to serve up a fabulous vacation for any season!

The Big Barn Farm is a charming 25 acre Farm centrally located in the Green Mountains. The property consists of a large Farmhouse, multiple outbuildings and a Landmark 5-story Historic Barn. This 4-season paradise is a wonderful place to ESCAPE, RELAX and PLAY!

This Farmhouse condo has been recently updated and modernized into a bright, sunny, private and secure space. After a great day of recreation, store your winter toys in the spacious parking area and enter the Farmhouse to find plenty of hooks/storage for all of your outdoor gear. Once inside the cozy setting, pour a drink and soak up the stunning valley views through the bay windows of the large sitting/dining room as you contemplate what you'll cook up in the fully modernized kitchen. At dusk, head outside to the bonfire pit and enjoy roasting marshmallows by the warm glow of the fire and fading sunset. This is how a typical day is spent at the Big Barn Farm.

In this condo, the Master is a large, comfortable room with both a deluxe queen bed and a twin daybed. Friends or children will love the bright and cozy second bedroom with a double bed. There is also a roll away bed and a pack n' play, if needed.

The kitchen has brand new gourmet appliances and is outfitted with everything you'll need to serve up culinary delights. The bathroom has a full-sized tub with a rain shower head and a new, high-end large capacity washer/dryer to clean up from the day's activities.

You'll feel like you're away from it all - even though you're only a very short jaunt from the heart of everything that Central VT has to offer! Skiing/snowboarding/snowmobiling/biking/hiking/fishing/ice fishing/swimming/boating/waterfall exploration....the Ludlow-Cavendish area has it all! And, to top it off, this area is quickly becoming a high-end culinary destination. Great restaurants, locally grown food, farm-to-table delights - all this plus a fabulous Winery (Brook Farm Vineyards/Bates Mansion) Right Next Door!!

About Sheryl

Nomads at heart, New Englanders by birth, Travelers by choice. We have visited more than 100+ countries and picked up bits of language and some crazy customs along the way! Many of our earlier years were spent wandering with nothing more then we could fit on our backs. Years passed, a couple wildly awesome kids showed up and some crazy properties found their way into our lives including a one-of-a-kind Miner's Cabin in the one-of-a-kind town of Crested Butte (truly one of the most beautiful places either of us has ever been) and, more recently, a this gorgeous 25 acre former Vermont dairy farm which, when we found it, was a time capsule to the day it closed in the 1940s! 80 year old hay, anyone?

We've lovingly restored this iconic Vermont Farm to its former glory and you can sometimes find us snowshoeing through the fields or picking apples from the secret orchard while sitting in the tractor bucket. What a breathtakingly beautiful place. We welcome you to our slice of paradise!

Just what I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing, the condo was beautiful and had all the necessary items to cook which we found helpful as we saved by cooking at the condo. My friend love the hammock outside and the family dog Lucy was so friendly And loving. Beautiful place and just what my friend and I needed to get away in beautiful Vermont. I was close to the town of Ludlow and the waterfalls we went to see at buttermilk. Great location. And Trevor was very helpful with any and all questions and we had!

Spacious toasty full-equipped 2-bedroom

  • 5 of 5

We loved this spacious, farmhouse upstairs apartment. The apartment is the entire upstairs floor of this farmhouse, which is situated in a pretty open valley in the Vermont hills. The apartment is fully heated, has a fully equipped modern kitchen and bath, cable and internet work great, and the host is warm and responsive. The bay window in the picture gives a lovely view of the valley as the sun comes up over the mountains and the mist rises from the fields. We felt very at home.

Great house for a ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples and stayed here on a really cold weekend in March to ski Okemo. The apartment was the second floor in the house. The kitchen was well stocked, we were able to cook with no problems. The larger bedroom was colder than the rest of the apartment, but my girlfriend and I like it that way, so it didn't bother us.

The place was about a 10 minute drive, partly on dirt roads, to Okemo. The ground was so frozen that we didn't have any problems driving in our front wheel drive van.

We'd stay here again.
