Craftsbury House Rental Photos and Description
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.
