Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

Clean and charming 4 bedroom 2 bath house in gorgeous Vermont countryside

Sunny 4 bedroom 2 bath home sleeps 8. Located on 4 lush acres of rolling fields, mature trees and streams, this single level custom built ranch house is conveniently located near everything, yet is private with spacious lawns and not a neighbor in sight ! Only 3 miles from historic Woodstock Village, which offers small town fine shopping and a variety of quality restaurants as well as fun for the kids at Billings Farm and golf at the famous Woodstock Country Club. Woodstock offers many year-round activities, including skiing at Suicide 6 in Pomfret (6 miles away) and Killington (20 miles away), swimming, fishing and kayaking at Silver Lake in Barnard (10 miles away), hiking at Mount Tom (in Woodstock Village), horseback riding at the Green Mountain Horse stables in South Woodstock, or just relaxing and experiencing all the natural beauty the area has to offer. We are located 10 miles from Quechee and 20 miles from Dartmouth College/Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical School and Hospital/Hanover, NH. We are also 7 miles north of the famous Jenne Farm in Reading, the destination point for many photographers and lovers of fall foliage. Good place to stay if you're coming into the area for the Covered Bridges Half marathon in June or the 100 mile run in July (which goes right past our house), as well as the 4th of July (Woodstock does great fireworks) and the balloon festival in early June. Also convenient for Dartmouth College graduations. Winter vacation weeks are filled with fun family activities in town. Rates may be higher for holiday weekends/weeks and special event weekends.

The house is a single-story ranch, with a small one car garage under, located on a town road and easily accessed in all types of weather. There is a large and sunny open freshly-painted living/dining room area, with two large comfortable couches, two recliner chairs and a dining room table that seats 6-8. This room is bordered all around by large windows and a skylight, and opens up onto a full season screened porch that overlooks the rear yard, flower gardens, woods, gravel patio and brick fireplace. There are ceiling fans in both the living room and porch, although there is always a nice cross-breeze from all the windows and open screen doors. For music lovers, there is even an older built-in piano !! There is also a 52” HD TV and sound bar in this room, as well as a DVD player (and some DVDs) a radio and an IPOD docking station. Also there is good internet connectivity as well as cell phone reception (for Verizon users) and a land line for local calls. There is a new gas fireplace, to stay warm and cozy on cold winter days ! We also have an outdoor fireplace with plenty of wood, and chairs and it is delightful to sit outside next to a warm fire and gaze at the star-filled night sky, with no lights anywhere in sight to hide your view !

The kitchen is older but freshly painted and in good condition and has been upgraded with a new floor, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher, and includes an electric stove, new Corian counters and a small built-in breakfast nook which can seat 4-5 people. The breakfast nook looks out from the front of the house, and faces east, so is quite pleasant in the mornings when the sun is pouring in. There is a full size washer and dryer located just outside the kitchen, and both are older but in good condition.

There are four bedrooms, two have queen beds (master bedroom and front corner bedroom), a third bedroom has a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a twin on the top, and the forth bedroom has a twin bed. All beds have new linens, pillows and lightweight down comforters. There is room in the front corner bedroom to fit a foldaway cot, for an additional short term guest (2 cots located in closets). We also have a Graco Pack-and-Play portable crib which can sleep an infant or small toddler. There are two full bathrooms, one located off the master bedroom and the other off the hallway where the other three bedrooms are located. Both baths are bright, clean, newly renovated and painted, and have a tiled tub and shower unit in addition to all new fixtures. Bath towels, wash cloths and beach towels are all new and in good condition. The master bedroom, also newly painted, is located at one end of the house and is quite private from the rest of the house, and doors can be closed in such a way as to enhance the feeling of peace and quiet in this apartment-like part of the house.

There is a shed in the yard, that has interior lighting, and can be used by older children as an additional place to explore – though we do not clean it as it is really not meant for anything more than another place for storage….

The land is gorgeous – the portion of the lot that the house is located on is level and raised from the street so there are views of the hills and valley across the street, and we have 4 Adirondack chairs and 4 chaise lounges for you to relax in, during the spring, summer and fall months. There is also a patio dining table and six chairs, as well as two umbrellas, available outside during the summer and fall. Our land also includes a field next door to the house, which goes up the hill and is a fun place to play and sled in the wintertime. The land also continues across the street, where there is another field to explore, and which abuts a marshy area.

We have cleared a path on our land, through the woods, for access to a river which runs along the border of the property - a lovely place to sit, watch and listen to the rushing water as it flows through the woods and down the hill ! (Path starts between the two large evergreen trees, just follow the blue tape on the trees )

Our house is simple, comfortable and an ideal rental for two to three couples or extended families, who love nature but enjoy the advantages of being very close to both cultural and all types of outdoor recreational activities. Also ideal for larger family get-togethers or celebrations, due to the configuration of the land and the private but convenient location.

About Liz Gruber

We have been coming to Woodstock for 30+ years, were married at the Woodstock Inn, and only recently purchased our dream home.

Liz Gruber purchased this house in 2014

Why Liz Gruber chose Eastern Vermont

Simple but charming, this single story house is located on a fabulous piece of land, with privacy, peace and quiet and yet only a few miles to some of our favorite local attractions (Suicide Six, Killington, Silver Lake, the Village of Woodstock and Quechee Lakes).

What makes this house unique

Quiet and private but not isolated, and very easy to access in all seasons.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place. The home is beautiful and comfortable with great New England views. The property is set back, wide open, and secluded but only a 5-10 minute drive into downtown Woodstock or a 20 minute drive to Killington. Perfect spot if your looking for a quiet New England getaway with proximity to fun day trips.

We wanted to move in permanently!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave! Everything you could ever want was provided. Full kitchen with all the accessories. Great room for dining and watching a very large screen television. Games, cards, DVD's, little radios throughout, desks. Beautiful views in every window. The location was perfect. Big lot with deck. Plenty of room for parking. Our keys arrived a week prior along with a return envelope. Yes! We would stay again!

Great location, beautiful and excellent communication

  • 5 of 5

We went up to Woodstock for a wedding. Liz and Rus's house perfectly fit our groups needs. It was close to the town center, had a great yard for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful VT weather and the house itself was amazing. Liz was great at notifying me about things as well as responding. The communication couldn't have been better. Liz even sent us a bunch of information about activities in the Woodstock area. Our dog loved running around the yard! I would definitely recommend this house for people looking to be close to it all yet have a little peace and privacy. Great place!

Quaint property close to town center and outdoor activities

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained with a beautiful outdoor garden and backyard. Our active boys loved running around in the yard. We enjoyed the town of Woodstock with its shops and restaurants as well as exploring the numerous outdoor activities nearby.

Liz provided excellent customer service and was very easy to work with. She guided us in finding the right activities for our family.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the house for a horse show at GMHA with some friends at the end of July. We all found the house to be fabulous! It was very clean and the layout of the house was a nice flow so we weren't tripping over one another. The bedrooms were a nice size and the house had an overall comfy feeling.

Seeing as how our stay was the end of July we had some pretty hot weather. There isn't AC, but there were plenty of fans in each room and the nights cooled off quite nicely. We are all looking forward to staying here again next year!
