Great home for a long weekend stay!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed up here with some family and friends over a long weekend. The home was as described and had nice amenities like a Hot Tub. It was below Zero with no significant snow during our stay which kind of killed our Snowmobiling plans, however the great wood stove kept the house plenty warm during our stay. There are tons of local breweries to check out within 20-30 minutes from the home.We checked out IdleTyme Brewing, Stowe Cider and the Alchemist to name a few. The house had 4 twin beds and 3 double / full sized beds which helped sleep all 7 of us comfortably. The only thing I would recommend is to bring your own Grill if you plan to cook during your stay. They have a Gas Charbroil Grill with a full tank available, but the grill couldn't get hot enough to cook our vegetables, never mind the Ribeye Steaks we had. Fortunately I brought my Coleman Road Trip grill which saved the day (highly recommend by the way: They also didn't have any dish soap to hand wash any dishes, but did have dishwasher detergent to run the dishwasher.

Overall the house was as described and was a very comfortable nice place to spend our weekend away. although I never made it to the Elmore store myself I spoke with the owner Kathy a few times on the phone (property manager), who was very nice and accommodating with everything we needed. I would recommend staying here if you have a larger group of people, it is a very nice home in VT near Stowe.

Beautiful house but needs some work

  • 3 of 5

Just stayed at the red barn, and I definitely had mixed emotions about the place. For one, you have to bring your trash about a mile down the road to the local store to dispose of it. That was inconvenient. Hot tub is very finicky, and there was a loud buzzing noise that came from the fridge area. Don't know if it was the fridge's compressor kicking on or what but it would start and stop at random times of the night as well as during the day. The grill did not work, only one burner would light and was not sure if that was bc of a lack of gas or just defective. The pull out couch downstairs is completely uncomfortable. I would say don't expect much from a pull out couch, but this was Overall it was a nice stay but I don't know if I would return.

Owner's Response: Your right it is a beautiful house and I'm surprised at your negative comments as we pride ourselves on the quality of the house and more importantly its occupants. No complaints were made during the stay and we had people staying before and after. Regarding bins, these are picked up at at the Red Barn by my property manager, the fridge is only a few months old and there have been no complaints, the hot-tub was checked and is not faulty (sometimes when it is particularly cold it may take longer to warm-up). The grill was used extensively by the next people. We always encourage our renters to report any problems to our property manager in the guide we provide. In fact I do recall we were keen to make sure that this was a special vacation even before they arrived by providing flexibility regarding family members arriving early. I would encourage anyone interested to visit the Red Barn for themselves, its unique and we guarantee a special vacation.

Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of family and friends in November and was extremely impressed. What a beautiful house, grounds and accommodations. I couldn't have been more pleased with everything. I definitely will come back and stay at the Red Barn again the next time I'm able to come up to VT! We had such a great time and created so many memories that I'll never forget in this beautiful house. <3

My husband and I, along with a group of family/friends stayed at the Red Barn in November, and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! There is so much detail in this house every corner you turn; you can definitely see the time and love that has gone into making this house a home. The house itself was a great size for our large group, and Roderick, as well as the property managers, were so accommodating and welcoming to us. Everything about this house screams cozy, warm and inviting! We all had a wonderful time here and made great memories which we will hold onto forever. I should also mention it's in a great location, Stowe and Waterbury are close, and Burlington is great for a day trip too! Thank you for opening up your home to us and we hope to visit again soon! The Red Barn will always have a special place in my heart <3

A sweet home

  • 5 of 5

We had family stay here for the week of our wedding. It is such a sweet and comfortable house. It felt really good to be there. There was so much that was unique and artistic about the house. Our family loved it and so did we. Both Rod and Kathy were great. We highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends stayed at the Red Barn over MLK weekend, and had an absolutely wonderful time. All of us enjoyed it immensely and left with fond memories. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and family.

Some things we particularly enjoyed: the hot tub, how well maintained it is, the sleds, the views upon exiting the house, the wood stove and twisty fireplace, Vermont themed paintings on the walls, the welcoming bear, and the easy-to-use kitchen.

Rod (the owner) and Kathy (the property manager) were both very responsive and provided for a warm wintry hospitality.

Overall, it was a lovely trip for us all.

So please come back there is always a surprise gift for the returners! Dr Roderick Thomas, Owner, The Red Barn, Lake Elmore, VERMONT.
