Overview

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.

Awesome Ski Trip With The Girls!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely LOVED this home! Stayed here with some girlfriends for about 10 days back in March and it was just what we were looking for. Despite it being the end of the season it was the perfect location for skiing at Okemo. We also tried out the slopes at Stratton & Bromley which was just as much fun and not that far of a drive. There are a ton of activities and restaurants in the area. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that Manchester Outlets is nearby so we definitely did our share of shopping. The house was very clean and had all the amenities that a girl could ask for. We definitely plan on making this an annual trip and staying at this charming home again!

Perfect springtime retreat

  • 5 of 5
This past April, my wife Taryn and I decided to take a 2-week spring getaway at this lovely property. While we are avid skiers, this was our first visit to the Weston area in the springtime. We were looking for a rustic yet refined home that would be suitable for a romantic getaway, as well as a couples’ weekend for our friends. This home WELL exceeded our expectations!

From the booking process up to the day we left, our entire experience was wonderful: from the quaint decor to the beautiful yard, the friendly townspeople to the porch swing (my wife’s favorite), the home was everything we could have hoped for. My wife, a chronic back pain patient, is usually unable to get comfortable in beds outside of our home: to our shock, she slept like a baby for the entire two weeks! We unfortunately had a bit of unseasonably cold weather during our stay: luckily, the wood-burning stove kept us warm! Kudos to the owners for quickly responding to my email for detailed operating directions.

The owners’ commitment to guests satisfaction is unmatched: they were incredibly responsive to emails, maintained an exceptionally clean and cozy home, and even gave us some recommendations for local restaurants to try – all of which were fantastic! This really made all the difference for us.

We hosted two other couples one weekend and there was more than enough room for all 6 of us to sleep, lounge, and dine comfortably. There was ample space for parking, and the home's stash of board games made for quite the fun (and wine-fueled) night!

We are planning our next trip to the area soon, and we will DEFINITELY be staying at this cozy blue house again. Thank you for everything!

Charming & Comfortable Country House

Charming & Comfortable Country House
  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay in this charming house in beautiful Weston. Enjoyed shopping trips to the Vermont Country store, saw a great play at the famous Weston Playhouse and dined at nearby restaurants. But the highlight of our stay was the meals we prepared as a family in the fully equipped kitchen and the after dinner glass of wine on the porch swing listening to the "quiet" and breathing in the fragrant country air. Summer in Weston is so relaxing. The owners are a lovey couple who returned our security deposit quickly. Already booked another visit. Highly recommend a stay at this beautiful house.

The best vacation house experience we've ever had!

The best vacation house experience we've ever had!
  • 5 of 5
Thanks for all the advice and for letting us stay in your wonderful house - we had a fantastic 2+ weeks at Blue Haven Cottage! The set up you have there is just great for a carefree time in lovely surroundings. Our family of 7 range in age from 2 - 60 years old (including two active teens) and we had plenty of space and privacy upstairs AND we loved the big open floorplan downstairs. We played games, talked, cooked some memorable meals (thanks for the local farmer/butcher recommendation) and after all the hiking/swimming, we really appreciated how comfortable the beds are! The house is exactly as you describe it - "charming and comfortable". This is absolutely the best vacation house experience we've ever had ... and we do this several times a year. We hope to be back this winter for a week of skiing and to see what Weston is like in the winter.

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.

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!
