Overview

Wardsboro Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 2+ Bath, Sleeps 10

This welcoming rustic farmhouse remains charming and unspoiled inside with lots of room to roam outside, including 84 private acres. Perfect for small groups, families and as a romantic retreat. Top floor fully renovated in 2014 to create two large, beamed-ceiling bedrooms, TV games room, and shower room with toilet and underfloor heating. The quiet location provides a real escape, yet it's convenient for both Mount Snow and Stratton ski resorts. You can cross-country ski, sled, play lawn games, and ride bikes on the property. For hill-walkers, trails on Stacey mountain behind the house lead up to the remains of early settlers' farms. In the summer you can find extensive hiking and biking in the surrounding state parks and forests, and swimming at Townshend Dam Beach, Beautiful Grout Pond, Lye Brook Falls, Hamilton Falls. Families will enjoy the petting farm at Brattleboro.

For Shoppers, the local General Store has all necessities as well as many luxuries, and exploring the funky shops and co-ops in Brattleboro always yields treasures. Manchester is famous for its high-end outlet shopping. Of course there's wonderful antiquing and craft-buying in the surrounding villages and Brattleboro; even glass-blowing in neighboring Jamaica. Enjoy good food in picturesque Newfane (Old Newfane Inn, Four Columns Inn, Coach House), Stratton (Organic Pizza Company), and West Dover (Dover Forge, Deerhill Inn, First Wok). The Bittersweet Cafe just a few minutes' walk away provides great coffee, hot chocolate and pancakes (with Vermont maple syrup of course) at breakfast or delicious sandwiches at lunch.

The house sleeps 10 in 5 bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen, 3 twin bedrooms), two bath/shower with toilet. There is a pull-out for 2 extra visitors. The large wood-paneled and beamed living room has working fireplace (firewood provided). The Sitting room is separate with views over meadows, historic cemetery, and mountains. The upstairs TV games room gives extra room to hang out, with a desk by the window who want to work. The large dining room with farmhouse table and benches seats 10. A separate, paneled mudroom stores away coats, boots, bags, and skis. The well-equipped kitchen looks out over lawns and meadows. Washer-dryer.

About Jennifer Mahon

We have 4 small children and currently live overseas. We love hiking, skiing, and spending time with family and friends in Vermont.

Jennifer Mahon purchased this farmhouse in 1970

Why Jennifer Mahon chose Wardsboro

My parents bought Fairview Farmhouse when I was a small child. I've been coming to Vermont as long as I can remember. My favorite childhood memories were born here, and now I love being able to bring my own kids. It's wonderful to let them explore freely on the property knowing they are safe well away from roads. In the evening it is cosy and romantic to sit round the fire.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is relaxed, not at all fussy, and welcoming. Its setting on a rise slightly away from the picturesque village of Wardsboro is peaceful and safe, yet close enough to the local cafe and general store that we can walk down to the village to pick up the morning New York Times and a treat for breakfast. The views are wonderful all year round. It has a claim to fame: On the property is the largest hand-pegged barn in Southern Vermont, a massive historic structure remaining from the Farm's days as a dairy farm.

Great fireplace, spacious rental for the price

  • 4 of 5
This property had everything we needed at a great price. There was plenty of space and the fireplace was excellent to gather around. Mount Snow was easy to reach for skiing just 10 miles down Route 100, and those of us that didn't ski enjoyed themselves snowshoeing in the land surrounding the house. The only drawback was that there is only one bathroom, however that didn't present any problems for us. We would definitely consider returning for future ski weekends.

Very cozy !!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the farmhouse! The house has lots a space and a fully stocked kitchen. I would definatly recommend this to a friend. We did get some cell phone reception , it was kinda nice not to have it. Very close to Mt snow, and the general store down the street has everything you can think of. The owner was great answering any questions we had prior to our stay !

Warm, comfortable and accomodating

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here 3 nights and went to Mt Snow during the day, which is 15 minutes away. There is a grocery store a few blocks down where you can buy pretty much anything. The house itself was very warm, clean and spacious. There's a fireplace stocked with wood, a huge dinner table, and a well stocked kitchen. Lots of utensils for cooking. They provided ample bedding and towels. And 3 pairs of snowshoes by the door! No cell phone reception for any of us in this area though, but I think that's common. Just something to keep in mind if you're meeting people here.

Overall a great experience, and we'll be coming back for sure!
