Unique house for great family vacation!
We rented the house for President's Day weekend and it was perfect for two families and our kids. The house has a classic Vermont feel, complete with two wood stoves for great fires, a nice kitchen and large table for family meals. Plus the kids loved the upstairs "bunk room". Also close to skiing at Suicide Six or Pico/Killington. We loved it!
Our stay was quite relaxing! Away from it all surrounded with snow! A winter wonderland!
We had such a wonderful time at this lodge! There was plenty of wood supply to keep us warm while enjoying the fireplace as we play board games! The boys when skiing while others hang out around the house-sledding and playing! We really enjoyed our time together and the lodge was a quaint place to spend a great family time!! Thanks so much for everything including being so flexible with our check in and check out time!! The owner and caretaker were fabulous and considerate! Highly recommended!
The house was great. It was perfect for us as we were a family of 12 with some little
ones who could all sleep in one room. Thanks for sharing your
house with us. Skiing was only 6 miles away.
Perfect country getaway
My VT getaway was with a few of my friends and the location and house did not let us down. More then enough space for us all to practice yoga in the morning and hang out in the evening. If the mosquito's cooperated, there was even a fire pit and chairs in the back yard. The house was clean, beds comfortable and was ready for our arrival. Check in/out was very easy. Woodstock only a few minutes away was a classically cute New England town! You must schedule a visit to Sugar Glider Kitchen if you come here with a group of girlfriends! We would stay here again.
Wonderful Mountain House
The Balaban family house is a wonderful and magical place that is fully stocked and ready to host. The unique design creates space for folks to connect and the outdoor space is an great extension of the house. Would highly recommend it for anyone (and especially those that have a large number of people to sleep).
A wonderful vacation to remember!
The Barnard Lodge was a wonderful place for our extended family to gather and relax and re-connect. Flying and driving in from Alaska to Massachusetts, there was room for everyone! The layout is unique, offering plenty of freedom and privacy for the cousins, and quieter gathering places for the adults. There really is room here for everyone! We spend most of our time cooking and enjoying the open concept newly remodeled kitchen and dining room, relaxing around the outdoor fire, and exploring the surrounding communities. Barnard itself is lovely and quaint, with gourmet food and icecream at the Village Store a mile away, (get some great sandwiches to take to the lake!) and a beautiful lake and beach so close for swimming, sandcastles, paddle boarding, canoeing etc. Woodstock is lovely, with an independent bookstore, coffee shop and boutiques. The local restaurants offer selections for all the foodies, and don't forget the many family friendly breweries a short drive away! The location is perfect, and it's hard to say which was more fun - the outings or coming home to the Lodge! The owner and the caretaker are both easy to get ahold of, and quick to respond to needs, as well as leave you alone so you can relax and enjoy your family. The house is very secluded, and we miss our morning jogs down the dirt road past the Belted Galloways! It's so hard to pick a vacation home sight unseen, and invite everyone to come - with The Barnard Lodge you can!
