Lars purchased this Barn in 2003
Why Lars chose South Shaftsbury
This is the perfect property to relax and unwind in total privacy. Vermont in general is a very relaxed, friendly place. Southwestern Vermont is IMO the most beautiful part of Vermont. If you are looking for stress reduction, a romantic get-away, and tons of outdoor activities, you found the perfect place.
What makes this Barn unique
If you are looking for authentic Vermont country living and something a little out of the ordinary, look no further.

Beautiful, private getaway
My partner, doggie, and I had a wonderful time at Lars' home. Tucked away with a large yard, bon fire pit, and private trails on the property, the converted barn was exactly what we were looking for. And when we were finally ready to come inside for the evening, we hung out in the cozy living room. It was just perfect for our needs. We very much hope to return for another stay.
We had great time. It was exactly what we needed. Loved enjoying the yard and trails. Would definitely return . . . and plan to!
Great place, well located and great host!
Just as advertised
The description of this property was spot on. It was incredibly clean, close to Bennington, and quiet. Lars was amazingly responsive.
Peaceful & relaxing weekend
Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the barn. The property is rustic but has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Location is off the beaten path but close to town. Lars was very responsive to our emails. We’ve already talked about visiting again some other time of year.
We had a great time very relaxing
