Very comfortable and roomy

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a lovely weekend at this farmhouse so we could attend a family wedding. The kitchen is beautiful and modern and very well stocked with utensils and pots and pans, etc. The beds are very comfortable and the house very nicely decorated and very clean. It's great for a group, because you can hang around the dining room table and another group can hang in the living room. There are two full bathrooms. There's a piano and a wood stove. Though it was a cold and rainy weekend, we were warm and cozy. The owner is very responsive. Everyone loved it!

Great comfy house for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in the Red Farmhouse. The location was perfect for our team during GMSR. There were plenty of beds for all and space for the bikes. The back yard was so peaceful and a great spot for morning coffee or afternoon beer. The dining room was the perfect size for our group and with the kitchen right there you never missed out on the fun bc you were cooking.

The house is great and we really enjoyed it over our weekend there. Thanks so much for sharing with us. We definitely recommend the house!

Had a great visit to the valley. Location was super convenient. House was clean and had everything we needed. No shortage of towels or pillows. Even had a few fans for the hot summer months, although we did bring some along. Owners instructions were detailed and clear. Thanks for a great stay. We'll be back next year.

Wonderful home that fit a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of couples and singles traveling to Vermont for a wedding. The "Red Barn" was the perfect location and met all of our needs. Charlie responded very quickly when I had a question. I would definitely book this home again!

Very comfortable house , nicely decorated with all that we might need

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good weekend at the REd Ski House (late FEb 2016). We are a group of (older)women friends that meet once a winter to cross country ski or snowshoe , ( or hike when not enough snow). The house accommodated all 5 of us with our own sleeping quarters ; the kitchen/ dining area was where we congregated to cook and converse. The house was well-maintained and has the wonderful character of an old New England farmhouse with sloping floors, angled windows, mudroom. The heating and insulation were very efficient and the bathrooms and kitchen modernized. The house was very clean with ample blankets, linens and comforters that were lovely and stylish in a country way. The location right on route 17 (on the way to MadRiver and Sugarbush) was not as noisy as we thought it might be. The one negative comment from us all was that the person in charge of snow removal could have been more diligent around the entrance where it was not well cleared and was slippery-. some more sand would have helped. We found two lovely segments of the Catamount Trail to hike on just a few miles away off of 17 .

We will recommend the house to our friends and family..
