About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, full kitchen, sleeps five

The Red Diner Guest House Is a cozy two (2) bedroom cottage with the charm of a yesteryear diner. Our retrofitted diner sleeps five comfortably, complete with full bath and kitchen facilities. It is located on the grounds of a rustic farm in the heart of the lakes region of Vermont, only minutes away from downtown conveniences. If you're the adventurous type there are many places and things to explore locally- and also within a days ride if you like a roadtrip: museums, shops, historic sights, galleries, farmers markets, swimming, fishing, and lots of hiking! If you are looking to just relax, the Diner is the perfect spot for some country R&R, or head to one of the nearby lakeside beaches to kick up your feet.

Clean, Cozy, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, affordable find! The diner has funky decor, a most comfortable bed, fully-equipped kitchen, and plenty of room for two. Thank you for the getaway! It was relaxing and soothing!

What a lovely little find!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay. The kitchen is well equipped so that we were able to make a full cooked breakfast and play diners. The retro decoration is lovely but by no means is this property old or musty. There is a user friendly heating system and the bathroom was clean and well appointed. Plenty of clean linens too. We were only staying one night but this seems like a lovely part of the country and we wish we could have stayed longer.

Great family spot when you want to relax!

  • 5 of 5

Like the prior review, I hesitate to share what a great spot this is. But the Bach's should get credit for their great hospitality. This guesthouse is off the beaten track but still so near a lot. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the spot, the access to a great swimming hole and walking/biking loop, and the chickens. It was great for my 5yo and 8yo sons. While away from the property, we spent time at the Poultney memorial day parade (very touching), kayaking Lake St Catharine, and then playing disc golf at Okemo on a beautiful day. Poultney is just 5 miles away and has a grocery store, ice cream shop, pizza, etc. There really isn't much else you need when on vacation in Vermont!

A Great Getaway At A Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

I've been meaning to write this ever since our wonderful stay this summer. My wife and I had mixed emotions about the diner theme. We're so glad we decided to book the week! The retro decor was a lot of fun and the Bach's couldn't have been nicer. There was plenty of space for my wife and 9 year old son with all the amenities needed to eat in when we chose to. My son also befriended the family chickens, and having them run to us every morning for scraps of bread added to the Vermont charm. The location is great, close to Lake St. Catherine and the swimming hole right down the road was a blast, very refreshing! We would definitely stay here again spring, summer or fall.

  • 5 of 5

We wen for a holiday weekend and was so wonderful there, close to a beautiful lake, a short distant from charming little towns; the family that on the farm are very sweet and make us feel there very comfortable. Decoration is very cool, and my son of 11 yrs. have all the fun there. Nature with: river, birds mountains, yard sale everywhere. Away from the city. Just great!!,

The lakes region is a rural area, there are plenty of nearby places to hike, swim,boat and fish. Our diner cottage is located in between 2 villages that have great restaurants and little shops. A short drive away you can find golfing,skiing, historic homes and areas, antique shops and museums. When the weather is inclement there is also a movie theater, bowling, arcade and mall, to pass some time in.
