LUXURY MINI-LODGE!!--EXCEPTIONAL NEW HOUSE IN OLD VILLAGE

Brookfield House Rental Photos and Description

Master Suite + Three Large Two-Person Suites +Three-Bed Children's Dorm

Located about 100 yards from the Floating Bridge in the Pond Village section of Brookfield, Vermont, this house is large, bright, and beautiful. Centered around a gourmet kitchen, it has an open floor plan; a large, yet friendly space that is nicely set up for up for music and musicians–there is even a dance floor! At the same time it is intimate enough for two people to feel very cozy watching the sunset from the Master bedroom deck or sharing a candlelit dinner for two beside the Big fireplace.

A very pretty brook also runs through the property.

Maybe The Best House in Central Vermont!!!: Luxury Mini-Lodge centrally located near Montpelier; and an easy drive to Stowe, Waitsfield-Sugarbush, Woodstock, and Hanover N.H. (Dartmouth College).

This could be the nicest house in Central Vermont!!

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • Low Allergen Environment

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS!! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely beautiful! It is warm and welcoming from the moment you walk through the door and just keeps getting better! The owners are wonderful - they seem to truly enjoy sharing their home with guests..and you do feel like a guest and not a renter! They spared no detail in the house - beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a giant gourmet kitchen, and great room with an awesome fireplace, surrounded by great books and music...all you need to do is supply the people, wine and conversation. It is a great place for a couples getaway or for families traveling together. The kids (teens and pre-teen) loved having the lower level "dorm room" to themselves and adults enjoyed the privacy of a ensuite bedroom! We are already planning our next visit!

GREAT FOR A LONG WEEKEND.

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this home for a week in February. It is exactly as pictured and is a great place to get away and entertain. The home is large and well designed. The only thing not shown in the pictures is the 4th bedroom which is actually in the basement and is not quite as nice as the other 3. If you have kids, however, they won't mind since it has a large TV. This is a great home if you want some peace and quiet. There is not much nearby except an exceptional restaurant (Ariels) about 100 yards down the road. (A MUST IF YOU STAY HERE). The only minor issue was that the ski resorts are actually much further away than described above. Sugarbush is about 70 minutes not 35 each way. The closer one that we liked better was Bolton, which is still about 60 minutes drive each way. Since this was a ski vacation, we were very tired of the 2 hours of driving by the end of the week.

WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT.

  • 5 of 5
Dear Sandy,

I just want to say thanks so much for opening your lovely house to us this past weekend. It was gorgeous and spacious, all the while being warm, cozy and familiar. We especially loved the piano and the fireplace and the enormous kitchen and dining table, which we put to good use with huge feasts both nights among friends, and great wine and conversation. We even put the dancefloor to good use, and brought a karaoke machine to fill the house with (some good and some bad) singing! We will definitely recommend your place to our good friends, and hope to return ourselves. So thank you, Sandy. We really appreciated your hospitality, your house, your books, your kitchen, your interesting pictures, and all the other accoutrements of your place.

Best wishes to you and your family, and thanks again!

Kristin (and Lee)

WOW-ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME-BUT BETTER!

  • 5 of 5
We 8 retired farmers and wives from Oklahoma visited this WONDERFUL home and couldn't believe how comfortable, how delightful, how roomy, how inexpensive, how it totally met our needs. Everything is new! The suggested restaurant was scrumptious! We just couldn't believe our being so blessed in finding this place. It was the best of the three homes in which we stayed on our 7 days trip to VT/NH in the fall of 2008. Judy

IF YOU WANT TO GET AWAY FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE

  • 5 of 5
What you see is definitely what you get with this property and more!! We rented 5/8 through 5/17/08 and enjoyed the property so much. There are country roads perfect for walking, a huge fireplace that sets the tone for intimate talks or group conversation. Enough room to have a music jam - there is a wonderful piano which tapped my hidden ability. A large kitchen with an island to bring the whole family together and enough bedrooms to give everyone their space if it is needed. We found this property to be very clean, very comfortable, had all of the items you could possibly need to stay, and the owner's were wonderful to deal with. Just bring your food and personal items. In fact, I found out that I knew one of them from growing up in Barre!! The porch balcony you see in the picture is off the master bedroom and was our morning space for coffee and waking up or for the final glass of wine at night - the sound of the babbling brook can't be beat. There is a sunroom that we found to be a great place for evening conversation if the night was a little warm for a fire. Even with such a wonderful place we did venture out to eat - Sarducci's in Montpelier was great Italian! Also try The Steak House on the Barre-Montpelier Rd - we enjoyed our meal a lot. We would recommend visiting Ben & Jerry's for their tour; note there is no tasting on Tuesday's. We enjoyed it - especially the free samples. And please go to Bragg Farm for your maple syrup needs - yum. Try to make a stopover trip to Stowe, get out, walk around. There are some very nice shops - expensive, but nice for browsing. And you have got to go to the Vermont Sugarhouse in Royalton for breakfast, hearty Vermont fare!! The only drawbacks we found was the area itself. There was limited grocery stores or shopping centers in the area, so be sure to get what you need before you return to the property and expect to pay more than maybe what you are used to. Resturants tended to close very early - earlier than we are used to in our city. And the choice of restaurants was very limited as well which was probably the reason we did a lot of cooking in and grilling!! Don't shy away from this property - this property is as beautiful as the pictures and you will not regret giving it a stay.

Pond Village in Brookfield is from another time. Vermont, 1949. There are only about 80 full time inhabitants, and the main street is a dirt road (Brookfield’s citizens fought the state to keep it from being paved.) The center of the village is the somewhat famous Floating Bridge, a structure that sinks into the waters of Sunset Pond when a car crosses it. Day and night the bridge is a converging place for strollers, swimmers, fishers, bicyclists, and–tellingly–many year-round inhabitants of the area who drive over in the evenings just to get a taste of the “Old” Vermont. Ariels-- one of the best restaurants in New England-- is located next to the small town park at the east end of the bridge.

Brookfield is in Central Vermont and is very well situated. Montpelier is a 17 minute drive ; the ski and summer towns of Warren and Waitsfield are 35 minutes while Stowe and Hanover, NH (Dartmouth College) are around 45 minutes. Burlington, Vermont’s largest city is 55 minutes away.

Other Activities: Culturally, there is literally something going on in the area every day and night. A local farmer can provide buckboard and sleigh rides.
