Overview

Vermont House Rental Photos and Description

3 level home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 - 8)

Please email or call for up to date rate quote and offers! Custom home built by the owner in 2004. Country setting in an orchard with Middlebury College just a five minute drive away. This is a quiet neighborhood surrounded by rural estates, and operating farms and orchards. The house has 3 levels with the main living area on the 2nd floor. This is a great space for a relaxing getaway; an artists retreat or for a group of skiers, riders or hikers. Come back after a day of outdoor adventure to warm radiant heat under elm and travertine floors. Several architectural details created from local hardwoods. The 2nd level has a large private deck facing west for evening sunsets and bbq grilling. This level includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area with one queen bedroom and a large bathroom/laundry. The shower is floor to ceiling travertine with built in bench. The upper loft is two spaces separated by a curved balcony. One end is for reading relaxing - there's a full couch and a desk with monitor and printer. The other loft space has two full size beds tucked out of the way. The first level entry has large built in cubbies and storage spaces for ski gear and backpacks. This level also has a separate queen bedroom with an additional futon. This bedroom has a private bathroom with walk in tiled shower. This is a great house to relax, read, write, paint or create. It's also a great jumping off place for a huge variety of activities. Contact me for up to date rates and offers - the automatic quote system isn't always accurate!: vermontnoelsmith - at gmail.

Wonderful home just 5 minutes from Middlebury

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. The home is located just 5 min from Middlebury and a perfect location! The home had three great bedrooms - and room for more on a pull out couch and a futon located in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen was brand new and well equipped with all the cooking utensils one could ever need. Brand new feel to the entire home and beautiful location! I would highly recommend this home to a family or multiple couples. We will come back for sure!

Wonderful Home in Apple Orchard

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home outside of Middlebury! The setting was so charming with the apple trees and the neighboring miniature donkeys. Everything was so comfortable in the house. The kitchen was well equipped. We were there at the height of apple season and enjoyed cooking a few cobblers. We enjoyed walking with our dog on Cider Mill Road and around the Middlebury TAM.

Beautiful house, nice location.

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay and we loved it. The location is rural, private, but ten munutes from Middlebury. Good resturants,

Beautiful college town.

The house is new and beautiful, friendly neighbors, (cute small donkeys) and apple trees on the property. Lucky for us

The apples were ripe.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a swim meet at Middlebury College and stayed with two other couples. The space was perfect! The home is clearly a labor of love and the custom work is beautiful. The location was great, close to the college and also a perfect street to walk on and enjoy the views. We highly recommend staying here!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A group of us, 2 couples, stayed for a short weekend getaway in January. This house is absolutely perfect for a quiet retreat when you need to unwind. The amenities are fantastic, the house is perfectly comfortable, and the details in the home show how much care and pride the owner takes in the property. Between cooking a great breakfast with local products to watching the cathedral mules in the pen in the farm next door, this home was exactly what we were looking for. I recommend this property to anyone, from families planning a trip or friends looking for a quick weekend vacation. Whenever I visit this side of Vermont, I will return to this home.

Memorable family weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and my 83 year old mother stayed at this delightful Middlebury Carriage House to celebrate our son's winter graduation. It was the perfect place to relax in between festivities, so close to the College and we had some wonderful family dinners. The house is immaculate, the showers are fabulous, the kitchen is both beautifully organized and well-equipped. Plenty of room for all to have private time, yet the open kitchen-living area is great for a gathering. We loved the views from all directions. Would recommend it in any season and hope to return.
