Landgrove House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, 1 bath on 12 acres near major ski resorts, hiking, and XC skiing
We have a wonderful unique home with tons of character and all modern conveniences. Recently renovated, it was originally built in 1945 by our aunt, Barbara Comfort, an artist who was a legendary figure in Southern Vermont and is still fondly remembered. She built a rustic country home with a modern feel.
There are huge sliding glass doors in the living room, which provide lots of sunlight and spectacular views of the Green Mountains. Barn wood covers the interior walls and a huge wood burning stone fireplace warms the open space. The house was featured on the cover of American Home magazine in 1949. The home has now been completely renovated with all modern conveniences while still retaining a charming country feel. The house is fully furnished and well decorated with many of our aunt's paintings. Many brokers, designers, and contractors have told us that there aren't many other houses like ours in the area.
The house has two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed, and the other with two twin beds and its own gas fireplace. The living room couches double as beds and can sleep two more.
The kitchen and bath have new amenities including a wet bar, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The kitchen is comfortable and open with a window seat in front of the large windows looking onto the southern lawn.
TV and DVD player are in the second bedroom for entertainment without the noise of cable TV. There is wireless internet if you bring your own laptop.
The house sits on 12 acres of lush woods and a large lawn with a small pond.
There is a screen porch for summer dining and a stone patio with an outdoor grill overlooking the mountains. In the winter, the mudroom can store skis and snowboards.
Our spring, summer, and fall rate is $2000 per month.
If you're looking for a picturesque country home with a real house feel, this is the place for you.

About Gardiner Comfort
Gardiner and Claire Comfort are siblings and inherited the Comfort Home from their beloved great aunt Barbara Comfort in 2012 and with Gardiner's wife, Colleen Werthmann (pictured), the three own the house. Gardiner and Claire grew up spending summers at the house with Barbara but lived, and still do, in New York City. Gardiner has spent lots of time in the mountains of the northeast, having studied at Skidmore College in upstate New York, so the outdoor environment of southern VT are perfect for him.
Colleen is originally from St. Paul, MN and has been living in New York City since college at NYU in the late 80's. Gardiner and Colleen work in theater, education, and television.
With the group's combined love of the house, and everyone's professional experience, you will surely be in good hands renting our home.
