Great skiing at Killington and Pico! The house was built before the ski mountains arrived, so you get quaint Vermont while staying at a farmhouse with fantastic views of the mountains. A high up, quiet country road. See wild turkeys, deer, pick blackberries in the summer, wild flowers.
The farm kitchen, with wood burning stove and pine board table create an old world atmosphere for conversation where family moments unwind. The house faces south, and has the warm sun all day. The loft is filled with board games, while the basement has a ping pong table. There is lots of space to come together, or hide from others.
Incredible view, cozy, and overall the perfect place to have a group vacation. The owner, Anne, was very easy to work with and friendly. Everyone in our group loved their stay so much they want to return yearly.
We had a wonderful time at the Killington Farmhouse. It is located on a beautiful piece of property with lots of land for kids to explore. We went in the fall and the leaves were just incredible. The view out the window from the kitchen table would be hard to beat anywhere. Our favorite part about our stay there was the amount of activities for our kids to do. They dragged sticks out of the forest, collected kindling for the fire, roasted marshmallows over a campfire, dragged each other on sleds up and down the hill, swung on the tire swing, climbed rocks, hiked up the waterfall (just down the road), rode the scooters in the basement, played ping pong, and enjoyed all the toys in the playroom upstairs. We also hiked part of the Appalachian Trail, which is just down the road.
The house itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed, although a little on the rustic side (which was just perfect for us). Anne, the owner, was easy to work with. She happened to be there when we arrived and took the time to show us around. She pointed out special toys and certain places the kids might enjoy exploring, which helped me to relax and let my kids play instead of worrying that they might break something. I would definitely recommend this place to any of my friends who enjoy nature and don't need a TV to have a good time.
My family had a wonderful time at this vacation rental. The house was really charming, very tastefully decorated and had plenty of room for the entire group (6 adults and 1 child). My daughter especially loved the tire swing and the art/ play room and keeps asking when we can go back....hopefully soon! The views of Killington was spectacular, you can very clearly see the peak on a clear day and the whole property gave the feelign that you were in your own private world. I would highly recommend this spot for anyone looking to get away for some nice relaxing family time.
One month Ago I made a trip up to Killington, Vermont for a 3-day Cycling Stage Race. One key pre-race preparation is to stay as nonchalant as possible and try to stay rested and relaxed. My results were excellent winning two out of the 3 stages in the Cat 2 race and placing 2nd overall. To avoid pre-race chaos and a pricy hotel filled with distractions, my buddy and I decided to stay in a Classic Vermont Farmhouse conveniently located a few miles from the Killington Ski lodge area and the start of the Killington Stage Races.
I enjoyed a pleasant night sleep and fresh mountain air in a comfortable and spacious home. We ended up staying 3 nights in the mountain rental home and it was so nice that I almost did not want to leave!! For any interested in a enjoyable get-away to the beautiful mountain valley area in Killinngton, Vermont, make sure you book your next stay at:
I've stayed in this wonderful home several times now, most recently in the summer months of 2010 and can attest to it being everything and more as described by the owner. The house sleeps 10 comfortably and has many recent renovations including a "green" bathroom in a new addition off the kitchen. There are two wood-burning stoves and a fireplace, a new deck with a state-of-the-art Vermont Castings barbecue grill. There is also a lower-level patio and game room with a ping=pong table. It is a five minute drive to the ski areas in Killington (I'm not a skier but love it here still)! There is a lovely old barn on the property that completes the picture. The home and grounds (±500 acres) are lovingly and meticulously cared for. This property is an ideal seasonal rental for a group of couples, with or without children, who love to ski but who want to get away from the hotel scene. It's also a wonderful summer retreat.
Quite a spectacular place, a real find. This is an
authentic farmhouse, with beautifully maintained
hardwood floors, kitchen hearth and working
fireplaces. Cozy couch, ping pong table. Most
incredibly, the view from every window was either a
forest or the beautiful sheep barn on the property.
The kitchen has a large window looking over the
entire Killington range. 1st floor bedroom had a
comfy orthopedic queen size bed, dresser and full
size closet. And all the comforts of home -
dishwasher, coffeemaker, quality appliances, large
bathroom. The house itself sits on an
extraordinarily scenic property, atop its own
mountain (4WD and sleds are a must). Extremely
private, yet 10 minutes away from restaurants,
slopes & rentals. I'd recommend highly.
Hiking on property.
The road is very steep, and in winter you must have 4WD. Sometimes AWD can make it, if not, you may have to park you car at the foot of the hill and walk 2/10 of a mile.
