PRISTINE VT FARMHOUSE, PANORAMIC VIEWS, PRIVATE ROAD, 3RD NT FREE IN MAY/JUNE!

Craftsbury House Rental Photos and Description

4BR/2.5BA/Sleeps 8

Only minutes from the famed Craftsbury Outdoor Center !

Your family will treasure the memories of a Vermont vacation at it's finest ! Enjoy the aroma of wood smoke on fresh mountain air surrounded by natural beauty, magnificent views, and family.

The road ends at our classic c.1850 hilltop homestead farmhouse, where you'll find hand hewn charm, modern comfort, and private rejuvenation. Except for the Maple-sugar house, we're the only place on a secluded dirt road, where you can enjoy acres of fields and forest, peace and quiet ( the nearest neighbor is 1/2 mile away).

High above the noise and worries of everyday life, the mountain meadows and panoramic views will make you melt, and give your family the retreat you deserve. Only 1 mile from Vermont. Route 14, there's easy access to everything the Northeast Kingdom has to offer. Truly a 4 season paradise.

In spring there's Vermont Maple Syrup (made just out back), Apple blossoms, and Lilac festivals. Summer brings lazy days at the multitude of area Lakes, hiking the Green Mountains, or exploring the hidden hamlets in search of that rare antique. (There's also plenty of 'Ben & Jerry's' ice cream at the local factory in Waterbury !). Fall brings out nature's palette of rich colors, sweet harvest, and whiff of wood smoke from the cook stove. Winter is full of the best skiing in the East (both Nordic and Alpine) and long cozy nights curled up by the fieldstone fireplace. X-country skiers will enjoy Vermont's premier destination, 'Craftsbury Nordic Center' with miles of trails and of course, 'THE' Marathon.

Downhill skiers have as many choices as days in the week !! Stowe, Mount Mansfield, Smugglers notch, Jay Peak, Burke Mountain, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen, Bolton Valley ..... The list goes on, all from 45 min. to an hour and a half away.

When it's time for you and family or friends to relax and enjoy life, come home to Craftsbury's 1850 Hilltop Homestead !! Kathy & Chip

Guestbook comments from the owner
We (my husband, me and our two young girls) just

returned from a wonderful and relaxing weekend at

the farm house. We would definitely highly

recommend this place. Everything about it was top

notch -- the decor, the antique farm house

furniture, the vegetable and flower gardens, the

upkeep of the property, the ice tea that was chilling

in the fridge when we arrived. Before we arrived,

Kathy had set up a bonfire for us to light later that

evening, which was one of the highlights of our

weekend & she also left a basket of goodies,

including smores ingredients (she also very

thoughtfully gave us a head's up on the

smores so that we could hide them in case we

didn't want our girls to have them, but we thought

it was a great idea). The house is situated on a

country road with no neighbors in sight. We loved

lounging in the morning on the grass in bare feet

and pajamas drinking coffee, taking our girls on

exploratory walks around the property, cooking

dinner with vegetables we picked out of the garden,

and watching a million stars come out in the night

sky. It was a great weekend & we are already trying

to think of a reason to return. We are lucky to have

stayed at many excellent places in our life and can

say with confidence that this place is truly a gem.

LITTLE PARADISE IN VERMONT

  • 5 of 5
Our little family (2 years old son and new baby) had a wonderfull time in this beautiful farmhouse.Everything is there to make your stay comfortable and all the furniture have something special that bring you in an another rythm. The view is amazing and the place really relaxing, pretty far from the stress of the city. Walk around the house can be enough to fullfill your wish of countryland with mountains, horses, cows, flowers and silence. Kathy and Chip have succeed to make this home part of our little history too.
Merci pour tout!

THE QUINTESSENTIAL VERMONT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to launch our Vermont family vacation. The location is completely private, the house is true to it's Vermont heritage including the furnishings and decorating, and the scenery is better than the pictures can capture. We found the house to be clean and well stocked. The bathrooms were updated and modern. The kitchen maintains its quaintness while being stocked and adequately suited for anything we could have wanted to do. The farmers that run the neighboring sugar house were kind enough to knock on the door, introduce themselves, and invite us to tour the sugar house which was in full production during our stay in mid-March. We have two boys ages 2.5 and 7 months and found the house to be well stocked with everything we needed for them including a crib and high-chair. We did not take advantage of the sliding hill as much as I would have liked to although there was plenty of snow during our stay. We look forward to returning this summer when we can enjoy the gardens and the rest of the grounds. I will feel comfortable having my preschooler play outside as there is virtually no traffic on the road that leads up to this house. Most VT farm houses were built along busy roads to minimize plowing; evidently this was a major road when the house was built in the 1850's. Thanks to Kathy and Chip for opening your antique farm home and allowing others to enjoy this unique and precious experience!

CHARMING VT FARMHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Classic VT Farmhouse with some modern conveniences sprinkled amongst the historic charm. Great for family get away (lots of sleeping space and a great kitchen but no cell phone coverage). House is equipped w/ high chair and pack-n-play as well as TV, DVD, WiFi and Cable in case you or your kids tire of quiet contemplation by the fire. Magnificent views and nice proximity to Craftsbury nordic trails (7mi). Great little gem in the country! Kathy was the consummate host; she was so kind to pull together a VT gift basket with many of the culinary delights of VT!

This is a classic Vermont farmhouse on a beautiful, serene, private and scenic tract. Nicely appointed, clean and with very comfortable accommodations, it's a perfect Vermont getaway for a family or small group. The owners, Kathy and Chip are extremely responsive, and very welcoming hosts. This will be a go to spot for us whenever we're in up in the area.

FANTASTIC WINTER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with six other family members, spent a long weekend at the farmhouse in January 2011. The house is warm, cheerful, clean, and comfortable. There is plenty of space to spread out, with five bedrooms, 2 showers, a living room, a den (with TV and DVD player), and a big kitchen.

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare and serve meals, and the beds and linens are very luxurious!

The location is ideal for winter fun. The house sits on a large plot of land, surrounded by forest with no houses in sight. We skied and snowshoed for hours and it was very peaceful. We also went downhill skiing (Smuggler's Notch is 45 minutes away) and cross country skiing (we like the trails at Highland Lodge).

Chip and Kathy are friendly, helpful hosts. They met us when we arrived and showed us where to find things like cooking utensils, snow shovels, and recycling bins. Chip drove a snowmobile around the property to pack down some trails for us. Now that is five star service!

We left the farmhouse just yesterday and are already talking about a return trip! Thank you Chip and Kathy for a wonderful mini-vacation!

Our family had a lovely time at the Craftsbury Farmhouse. With four adults and four kids, it was just the right size where everybody had their own space. The woods and fields were great for wandering and the sledding hill was a huge hit with the kids.

Kathy and Chip keep the place in such a way that it's really more like visiting a B&B or hotel. I've never rented a house before where the hosts leave you nice soap, super-cushy towels, flowers all over the place, etc. It was great.

We would definitely recommend the Craftsbury Farmhouse to anyone looking to explore VT's Northeast Kingdom and its whole burgeoning local food scene.
