Weston Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Charming 4 Bedms, 2.5 modern bath cottage in the perfect mountain village

Blue Haven Cottage:

Beautifully furnished in a charming and comfortable New England style, this house has been completely renovated yet retains a vintage Vermont charm. Great for year round fun:

- true skier's PARADISE with Okemo (8 miles), Bromley (12 mi), Stratton (15 mi), Magic and VAST trails in town!

- cool sweet mountain air and incredible theater, music, art shows in the summer!

- located on lovely Rte 100 - Vermont's premier Foliage Route!

The house is open and bright; it has lots of windows (all weather tight) and features covered porches on two sides! Our place sits on about an acre. There is lots of room to enjoy the outside, no matter which season.

Inside, we have wide plank poplar floors throughout most of the 2 floors so it is warm and easy to keep clean.

The first floor offers plenty of space in an open floor plan. Entry is through either one of the 2 beautiful covered porches. This floor is an open floor plan with a large double living room. Gorgeous wide plank poplar wood floors, lots of oriental style carpets mixed with good quality antique and modern furnishings make it elegant and comfortable.

Living room has plenty of comfortable and attractive seating for a big group to relax and open space for kids to play. Down 2 steps is the kitchen and the dining room. The kitchen is a cook's delight... It is well equipped and has lots of counter and cabinet space. The adjacent sunny open dining room features big windows on 2 sides, a big antique table and comfy seating for up to 8, which means that you'll have plenty of company (out of your way) while you whip up a hearty meal or reheat from the gourmet take out ;) It is very well equipped - even has a bread maker!

Second floor: Up the dramatic staircase is the well laid out second floor - there are four private bedrooms all off the central hall. This whole floor (except bathrooms) also has beautiful wide plank poplar wood floors.

#1 large master bedroom with Queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom - also a small office area with high speed Internet access (wireless Internet throughout the house). Windows on 3 sides to let in lots of light and vista views.

#2 large bedroom with Queen-size bed and direct access to shared bath - 3 windows on 2 sides make this a bright beautiful room.

#3 bedroom with double bed - shared bath is across the hall - cozy retreat that is beautifully decorated with 'VT Country Store' fabrics and an antique furniture.

#4 small bedroom with bunk beds - shared bath is next door - small but very comfortable with 2 closets and a big window.

All bedrooms have plenty of closet space and very comfortable quality furnishings, including good quality linens. All bathrooms are renovated & perfect

Blue Haven ...: This beautifully furnished and well laid out Vermont country home has charm and comfort in a peaceful setting yet close to 'everything'!

Weston is a 'picture postcard' Vermont village. Come and explore the original Vermont Country Store and the other shops, galleries, museums and restaurants of our small and very special village.

In the Winter you can have FOUR Ski Resorts with-in 16 miles - house is located on a very well plowed road, so you can get here or to the slopes in any weather! Never get bored skiing the same mountain every day - you are close enough to enjoy different terrains daily.

In the Spring and Summer you will enjoy the fresh air & sophisticated village country lifestyle. The Weston Playhouse is close by - this oldest theater in Vermont, offers 'Equity' performances in an intimate setting. The Weston rec center is a short walk -with courts and a spring fed swimming pond!

Of course in Autumn, you'll be on VT's main foliage route and see dazzling colors

Great VT rental!

  • 4 of 5
We rented this property last year for the season. It was a nice ride up to VT for the weekends from Boston (much closer than northern VT, and an easier ride with great restaurants along the way) Once we were there we always felt relaxed There are great family-friendly ski resorts nearby-we taught our 3.5 year old son to ski and he loved it! We cross-country skiied, went snow-shoeing, tried multiple restaurants (& breweries!!), visited farms for wagon rides, maple syrup farms, museums, the country store. The list goes on. TONS to do in the area. We are a young family with young kids. The house is an open floor plan, so great for kids to play but also be within site. The rooms are all cozy, and it was just an easy rental all around. We would rent again, but our son is now old enough to start sports programs in our area. Otherwise we would've snapped this up again. It's a great deal.

Great country house close to Okemo

  • 4 of 5
Great location, about 15-20 min from Okemo/Ludlow. Decor is tasteful. Kitchen is quite well appointed. The only exception was no dishwasher. We found many dry ingredients stored in cabinets which was a nice perk for not eating out every night. House was toasty even though it never got above freezing outside and one moorning was minus 10. Washer and dryer a plus with two active boys visiting the house. Great yard for playing in the snow. Driveway/walk was plowed and shoveled promptly and multiple times per day when necessary. Overall a very comfortable stay. The high speed wireless was very useful using our Skype account since cell phone coverage was not good. Very close Vermont Country Store which was unbelievably cool. Owners were very responsive and easily accessible. Will definitely come back to this house next time we go skiing at Okemo.

Great relaxing get-away

  • 5 of 5
The house was more than just comfortable. The down stairs was an open lay-out with a wonderful kitchen and dining area opening up to the livingroom. (guess you know I am female).
The upstairs has great beds, I know I slept very well.
Near sking, which I don't do, but also great for sight seeing. We were there just as the leaves were turning and even though it wasn't quite peak, the driving around was beautiful.
Great place to chill out. Did I mention the pot belly stove?

Best Rental in Southwest Vermont

  • 5 of 5
This lovely farmhouse is the best rental we've enjoyed in the many years we have visited the southwest region of Vermont. It is a quick drive from northern New Jersey to the lovely town of Weston. Once we discovered this property there was no need to rent another.
The house is very comfortable, clean and has all the amenities you would ever need. The open floor plan allows you to sit anywhere and still be part of any fun activities in the living room, dining room or kitchen.
The porch swing is a joy. At night the candelabra on the wall is a nice touch that provides a warm glow for those quiet evenings outdoors as you enjoy the brillant stars.
The Weston Playhouse is located in the center of town and we have enjoyed many wonderful plays. There is not a bad seat in the house. You can lose many hours browsing in the famous Vermont Country Store and the many shops in town. Don't forget the Cheese Emporium that not only boasts the best cheese selection but the best fudge, clam chowder and chili. The people of Weston are very warm and welcoming.
Lastly, the owners of this wonderful establishment go above and beyond to make every stay unforgettable. If you ever encounter any problems they are a call away and will make sure your needs are met. They always provide tips on dining, trails, swim holes and many other activities to satisfy every member of the family.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Michael and Terry - we had an absolutely wonderful time during our 2 weeks at Blue Haven Cottage! Our combined family (3 siblings, 2 spouses, 2 kids and our Mom) of 8 had plenty of space and your place was so comfortable and easy to relax in.

All of the tips that you gave us on things to do/see and the info that you left in the house we great and we were busy having fun from the very first day there! The kids loved the spring fed "swimming hole" and we played tennis there at the rec center on most days.

Your place is so beautifully furnished yet so comfy and not "fussy" - it really reeks of New England! We loved the porch swing and rockers on the southside porch and spent many evenings there with all of the candles lit (nice touch). I especially loved your kitchen and am even thinking of the same colors for mine - so beautiful and warm.

The people in Weston and other towns were so welcoming and we loved getting to know them. The pie place was a huge hit and we tried almost all of the seasonal pies!!! Of course we went to the Weston Playhouse and spent many hours browsing the incredible VT Country Store. Also the cheese shoppe is just amazing (our favorite was the horseradish sharp cheddar - sounds strange but is so good).

Thank you again for all of your help, being so easy to work with and so honest but mostly for letting us share your wonderful place which made for an amazing family vacation which we hope to repeat again!

Whether a new or repeat visitor to the village of Weston, you are in for a treat!

Weston, on the National Register of Historic Places, is a quintessential beautiful Vermont town. Built around a charming town green, Weston is on the scenic West River (good for summer swimming, fishing, inner tubing, etc.) and is where the famous Vermont Country Store is located - along with the wonderful Weston Playhouse!

Winter - We are located in a 'Skier's Paradise'! Our house is on a well plowed road with 4 major ski centers (Okemo, Stratton, Magic, Bromley) & VAST trails - the closest is 10 miles/farthest only 16 miles! You'll never get bored skiing the same old slopes everyday! Cross county skiing / snowmobiling too

Fall - foliage is spectacular - Route 100 is one of the main routes recommended for foliage viewing ... or simply sit in the porch swing and enjoy!

Summer - Long warm days and cool nights. Hikes, horseback riding, lakes (swim, boat, fish) & outdoor fun. World Class Theater & Dining. Charming towns & shops too

Other Activities: ski 4 major resort mountains within 16 miles plus cross country trails and snowmobiles

Ski: Just over the mountain, on well plowed Rte 100, from Okemo (7 miles) PLUS Stratton, Bromely and Magic all within 16 miles! Great choice of terrains and slopes so close by. Mt Snow, Killington and many many other slopes are an easy drive. Weston is easy to access in the winter and just out of the 'resort crush' - why stay in a condo when you can have a beautiful house with easy access and more space to enjoy!
