COOL VILLAGE HOME PRIVATE & CENTRALLY LOCATED- FAMILY FRIENDLY

Rochester House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, Sleep min 2- max 4 adults, (possible 2 children), 1 Bath

A decidedly cool and comfortable guest house in a quintessential Vermont small town.

Owned and run by two artists, our clean and recently rehabbed house is an amalgamation of old and new.

Built in the 1900's as factory housing, refinished hardwood floors throughout, large sunny rooms both up and downstairs. A well equipped kitchen that is roomy enough to hold you and your friends. Three quiet bedrooms, all furnished with new comfortable beds. A front porch to spy the neighbors, read a book or just relax with a cocktail.

Walk to our art gallery and cafes serving espresso's on their shaded porches. A bookstore to lose oneself in while finding just the right book to curl up with. Super restaurants provide fine and casual dining experiences. Sip local beers at local bars.

Rochester is a road/mountain biking mecca- roll into our great bike shop and ask for the rides only locals know.

Cross country skiing on our local trails, snowshoe or hike to the top of Rochester Gap for a fabulous view.

Take a leisurely stroll and commune with the cows at our local organic farm. Golfing is nearby, kayaking in the White River is directly across the street!

Killington and Sugarbush are an easy 30 minute drive in either direction. Try the Middlebury Snowbowl, only 15 minutes away that supplies skiing and snowboarding in a smaller more budget conscious friendly family atmosphere.

Travel back roads to loose yourself on, country stores to peruse, farmers markets for the freshest of fresh. Listen to impromptu concerts on the town green or just hangout and count pick up trucks.

Start up a conversation with a local- Rochester truly has one of everybody.

Decorated with original artwork, furnished with contemporary furniture, throw in a vintage farm house kitchen table for good measure. Dishwasher to coffeemaker, soft throw blankets to Marimekko prints, linens to toiletries, wi-fi to flatscreen all thoughtfully considered to make your time in Vermont both relaxed and memorable.

Both visual artists in our mid 50's- an abstract painter and photographer. We ride both mountain and road bikes, snowshoe local forests and return home to our nearly finished 1823 school house.

Our organic garden supplies stellar veggies year round. My wife is a fanatic cook and I try to ride my vintage racing motorcycle just a little bit too fast for comfort.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2000

We came to Rochester perhaps 15 years ago on a camping holiday only to later purchase three relic houses greatly in need of love. Robinson Drive has been the most interesting- ongoing restoration if not for the sheer size relating to its original purpose. Rochester is a small town safe and secure in who it is, friendly and peaceful.

Waving is commonplace. Conversations to just saying say hello make the trip to the grocery store a lengthy but rewarding journey. The slow change of seasons, one more time of shoveling your car out of a snowbank with the help of a neighbor makes for good friends.

We slowly fell in love with this massive slate roofed house as a project in need of fresh eyes, fresh hands and a healthy bank account. Oh, don't forget patience. Seeing the plenty of windows pouring in sunlight and large square rooms as a palate for a calm, positive experience. Its location on a side street make it a little off the beaten path but one is able to wander the town streets, have a coffee in the bookstore, read the paper and casually wander home. No car. Remember walking?

THIS IS INDEED A COOL VILLAGE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place to stay for a while during a transition to a new job and this provided a real home away from home for both my husband and for our family when we were able to be up here. It was the perfect place to start our Rochester area adventure. While our stay was longer than many other's might be, we think anyone visiting, even briefly, would settle right in and feel at home.

Each room reflects the artistic creativity of the owners and their attention to the details that make a big difference--like the super comfortable wing chairs in both a corner in the kitchen and a nook on the upstairs landing. Both of these beg readers or resters to sit and linger. Beautiful artwork graces the walls, along with interesting, eye catching accent pieces elsewhere.

The house has a spacious, yet comfy and cozy feel. The kitchen really is equipped for almost anything you would want to cook and the table easily accommodates a crowd. The beds welcome tired guests and the comfortable mattresses and linens ensure a good night's sleep so you're ready to explore Rochester's charming village, an easy walk away. Check out the Country Store and Café.

Cozy, charming and comfortable best explains this house. Our family loved staying here. A great turn of the century house with a modern look and feel. We just needed to bring ourselves and food to have a great weekend. The owners provided everything else needed from kitchen utensils, to bedding and towels. They also provided awesome communication to all our questions. Rochester is a great, quiet little village tucked away in the mountains. Everything you need from groceries to great dining is within walking distance. Highly recommended rental!

AESTHETIC, COMFORTABLE HOUSE IN CHARMING VT TOWN

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed here for 6 days in the dead of Vermont winter (and during the polar vortex). Given that the weather drove us indoors so much of the time, we needed a house that was cozy yet spacious, warm and charming. This turned out to be the perfect place! We also very much enjoyed the understated, tasteful aesthetic sensibility that informed the interior decoration and furnishing of this home. The town itself had a touch of the bohemian, with a wonderful bookstore café where you can spend the day sipping tea, exploring the literary universe, and observing the interesting forms of town life drift through (including dreadlocked writers, farmer philosophers, former hippies, and ordinary town folk). There is also a wonderful restaurant in town (School st bistro) that serves excellent gourmet food in a homey yet elegant environment. The surrounding area is absolutely gorgeous -- its at the foot of the green mountains, and near a flat plateau in the mountains called the "hollows," featuring miles of beautiful rolling farmland - pure Vermont picturesque and great for bike riding in the summer (the town has a bike shop). For the winter there is a fabulous x-country ski place called Oles with flat, panoramic views of surrounding country-side.The owner was easy to deal with, though sight unseen, as all payment is made upfront. We have been renting in Vermont now for about 7 years and this is clearly one of the best rentals we've had. We'll be coming back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your glowing praise Meg. Rochester is indeed a unique town- we are stoked you enjoyed your stay!
You left the house exactly as you found it, as if you didn't stay at all. I am sorry we didn't have a chance to meet, here is hoping you return this summer, I can show you some of the special spots to enjoy that are off the beaten path.
