STUNNING HISTORIC RENOVATED BARN

Manchester Barn Rental Photos and Description

2 bds. 2 bths. sleeps five comfortably

Stunning, renovated, historic barn on a 54 acre 'gentleman's farm' hidden within Manchester town limit and bordered by National Forest. Meadows, mountain views, brook, swimming/ice skating pond, hiking/ snowshoe trails, organic garden all on property. Large stone fireplace in living room, and another in pool table room. There is a complete kitchen (with a bread oven!), a hot tub, and for children, a pet cow, and two adorable miniature goats! Abutting Lye Brook Wilderness, where there are more hiking trails and one of Vermont's highest waterfalls. A private, romantic special place. Caretaker and owner on site.

Once the country estate of Ormond Gould and his socialite wife Marion Williams, and later the home and studio of famed painter and fly fishing enthusiast Odgen Pleissner, Boorn Brook Farm has been restored to it's original stunning splendor. The French inspired barn, built in 1820 has wide-beamed floors, soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces and complete country charm. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a country retreat for a small family, Boorn Brook Farm is the quintessential Vermont experience! In the summer, swim in the spring-fed pond with a beach, play tennis on the private court, hike on the private trails or in the bordering Lye Brook Wilderness, fish in the brook, pick fresh veggies from the organic garden or simply relax in one of the hammocks.

In the winter, skate on the pond, sled on the hill, snowshoe or cross country ski on the back trails, and downhill ski or snowboard at nearby Stratton or Bromley Mountains. Then return home to a roaring fire in the stone fireplace, a game of pool, sip some hot chocolate and then watch the sun set behind Equinox Mountain from the hot tub, right outside your master bedroom!

Children and adults alike will also enjoy our farm pets, Lola the Brown Swiss Cow, Willie and Skippy the miniature goats, and Ender the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.

ONE OF A KIND PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week here in October. We did several day trips all over the area, but each time we pulled in the driveway we said, 'it just doesn't get any better than this". You can see for miles and not see another house in your view. Very peaceful and relaxing. Enjoyed eating the local produce from the farmers market. How can you capture in a photo or express with a few words the dynamic beauty and peacefulness of this place? You just have to experience it, and I hope we get to do it again.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
I can not say enough about how WONDERFUL our stay was at this property! We had an amazing time and the best Christmas ever! The owners (Jeff and Shelly) made us feel like we were visiting long lost friends. Gayle (the caretaker) was more than helpful during our stay. We loved staying in the barn......it was beautiful! The cow and goats along with all of the snow that we had made for a "Norman Rockwell" style vacation. The house was clean, the kitchen had everything you would need and the fireplace was perfect! There is nothing else we could have asked for! We did however want to take "Ender" the HUGH Swiss Mountain Dog home with us but he didn't fit in our suv :) We cannot wait to return to the farm! Thanks again Jeff and Shelly for a perfect holiday!

AS ADVERTISED. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED.

  • 5 of 5
The Farm is a beautiful property. The Barn is fabulous! Very comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well outfitted. Very convenient to hiking, golfing, Manchester Center. Or, you may just want to hang out. It's best suited for one couple or a family. Second bedroom is a loft with single beds, so not really suited for a second couple unless they don't mind small quarters. I can highly recommend this property and hope to return.

RELAXING AND BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best vacations we have had in recent memory. The views were incredible and the farm offered pleasant walks in the pastures or hiking paths to the brook and mountains.

The barn was spacious and fully equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed, the DR/LR was huge and perfect for a small romantic dinner or a larger family gathering. There was a game room with a pool table. The hot tub made for a wonderful night under the stars.

Our dog welcomed all of the open space and hiking. He enjoyed visiting Lola (the cow), Skippy & Willie (the goats), and especially his fellow canine, Enders.

The owners and caretaker were extremely friendly and ensured that we were having a great time.

All in all, an excellent place to stay and we hope to be back soon.
