Overview

Barre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, one twin with trundle in study, one full bath, sleeps 6

Come stay in an apartment in the Maple Grove Farmhouse built in 1823. The house is surrounded by 140 acres of fields and woods for great hiking. Take a walk to the beaver pond that sits at the foot of the hill; if you get up early enough you will see the beavers. Swing under the huge maples or walk through flower beds and vegetable gardens or just sit and write. Cozy up inside with a good book or whip up a great meal. This is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Whether visiting family for a few weeks or viewing the magnificent colors of our New England fall foliage or on a romantic winter escape, enjoy your own five rooms of tranquil space.

Visit Brimfield, the Antique capital of the world, Sturbridge Village, see life as it used to be, Quabbin Reservoir with hundreds of acres of trails, Wauchusett mountain skiing or disc golfing at the Barre Falls Dam. If attending a wedding at Allen Harding Estate, Hartman's Herb farm, meditating at Barre's Buddist Insight Meditation Society, or visiting your student at Eagle Hill School, Maple Grove is right nearby.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Rebecca Southwick

Maple Grove Farmhouse is the house I grew up in. We lived here surrounded by fields, woods, and a beaver pond. We were a family with eight children and a large dairy farm. Now we enjoy the swings and lawn chairs under the beautiful maples.

Why Rebecca Southwick chose Barre

I love our small New England town, stone walls, and beautiful town common. The townspeople are the best! When we had a fire in 1963 and half the house was gone, Barre townspeople volunteered and helped my Dad rebuild. That's why I love living here!

What makes this apartment unique

Our house has plenty of room and lovely outdoor spaces. It is quiet, rural, and friendly. Perfect place to come for a month and visit relatives, a girls get-a-way, to spend quiet retreat time, or visit New England's attractions.

Business Trip Experience

  • 4 of 5

Having business in Barre and the surrounding area and finding no hotels within close proximity, I looked to VRBO and once again found a wonderful place to stay. My business partner and I stayed in this West Wing Apartment in mid-June and it worked fine for our needs. The owners are very nice and accommodating. Some quick observations:

- While it would have been good to be informed that there would be construction happening on the house during our stay, it actually had very little impact on our comfort or work.

- The apartment is really well set up for a couple or small family. The main bedroom with the king bed is excellent for a great night's sleep. The twin beds in the children's rooms, however, were a bit short and not all together appropriate for a second business traveler.

- If you're into keeping your accommodations spotless during your stay, there are a plethora of cleaning supplies in the kitchen and bathroom. If, however, you're expecting to take a shower, bring your own soap and shampoo. The only option provided is the liquid hand soap.

- Probably the most important thing for me, arriving late in the evening was that there be a way to make coffee in the morning without having to go shopping. This was provided for wonderfully, with both decaf and regular coffee in the refrigerator and a reliable coffee maker with timer.

- Other features (TV, WiFi, kitchen appliances, shower head, etc.) are all excellent.

A home away from home !!

  • 5 of 5

We spent many weeks at Maple Grove farm house apartment. It was extremely clean and nicely furnished with every amenity. Rebecca and Dot could not have been nicer. We enjoyed it so much that we did not want to leave and I even had a little tear in my eye when we drove away. I hope we have a chance to stay there again someday. If you need a place to stay in the area then this will be your home away from home. Great value, great place.

A home away from home !!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful farmhouse apartment EVER !! Clean, comfortable and with every amenity. We needed to stay in the area for two months and we could not have asked for a more perfect home away from home. Rebecca and Dot were so kind and helpful. We actually had a little tear in our eye when we drove away . I hope we get to stay at Maple Grove again.I would highly recommend this property to anyone !! Thanks again Rebecca and Dot, for everything. (:
