This charming rustic post and beam barn home is on 5 acres and is fully equipped with comfortable furniture and filled with antiques, memorabilia and artwork fitting a Vermont ski and 4 season vacation home. Most rooms overlook a beautiful bubbling stream and small pond. Large lawns invite child-friendly play and games. Attached deck features hot tub (hot tub is shut down between May and September), gas grill and outdoor furniture. Large barn and garage (built summer of 2010) provides protected parking for your vehicle and driveway provides outdoor parking for numerous friends and guests. Our small bridge across stream that provided access to Green Mountain Forest land for pristine hiking and snowshoeing right out the back door was washed out during Irean last summer. However, the stream can usually be crossed during summer months without it.
Sleeping accommodations consist of 3 bedrooms and a loft. The Master B/R has it's own private full bath, flat screen TV and queen bed (Tempur Pedic mattress). The 2 guest rooms share a full bath. One guest room has a queen bed and flat screen TV, while the other features bunk beds and a collection of antique wooden toys.

Our family has owned this Barn home since it was built in 1992. Our children grew up skiing at Stratton and Bromley and the house holds wonderful memories for us all. Now that our children are adults with their own children, although they live far away, they always make time to come back to our happy Vermont home. We decorated and equipped the house for family fun and entertainment. We hope you will like it as much as we have. Thanks for interest in our listing.
We had rented homes in the Stratton area for 4 years and realized that we wanted to be here long term.
Whether spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, this house is close to everything fun in Southern Vermont. Our children and grand children love playing on the property, in the stream, pond, the hot tub and hiking and snow shoeing in the adjoining forest. The house has all the modern amenities we have wanted for convenience and play.
