About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15

This beautiful and unique Vermont Farmhouse sits just outside of town with views of Okemo Mountain. Surrounded by private land, it is the perfect place to get away from it all. In the summer you can spend time around the outdoor fire pit, hike local trails, swim in the stocked trout pond or lounge on the back deck. In the fall it is impossible to beat the foliage in the area and right at the house. The winter time offers excellent skiing at Okemo Mountain, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and many other activities. This peaceful property is perfect for your family skiing vacation, weekend fishing trip or just some quiet time away. The house features a dining room with a large table and fireplace, a bunk room for the kids, a full kitchen, 4 bathrooms, 6 bedrooms including a beautiful master bedroom and a large living room with open fireplace. The property features a pond, a deck for relaxing and grilling, an apple orchard, a fire pit, hiking and skiing trails, direct access to the VAST snowmobile trail system and is also only minutes from the Black River. This rental is in a remote location and the building has the character of an old Vermont farmhouse. There is no TV and no WiFi and that is on purpose! There is a house phone and cell phone service at the house but it is limited. Ludlow and Okemo are only 20 minutes away. Woodstock, Quechee and Killington are also close by. Come and enjoy some time away at this truly special place! We will consider seasonal winter rentals from January to March.

Rustic relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property is expansive and well kept. The home is a slice of New England tradition. The property owners were responsive and helpful. We were looking to unplug for a weekend and enjoy the outdoors - the Farmhouse was an ideal setting for doing so. Thanks very much to the owners for sharing such a special place!

The pictures do not do this place justice-- it is gorgeous, charming & peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We did a surprise birthday party for my husband with family and a few friends. Enough room for everyone to roam the property, be free, play, and come together for beautiful fireside dinners. We feel so blessed to have been able to enjoy this home.

Breathtaking Property

  • 5 of 5

The property at the Farmhouse was unreal, with sweeping views of meadows filled with wildflowers and rolling hills in the background. The lawns were very well maintained, and the pond was perfect for floating around on a hot weekend. The neighbors are pretty far away, so you definitely have the run of the land, with a ton of walking trails and orchards to explore.

The inside of the house and pool barn are pretty rustic. It wouldn't necessarily be ideal for a group looking for pristine housing, as you can tell the house is old, but the exposed beams and weathered barn wood walls were perfect for our group of outdoorsy people. Definitely gave the property the charm that we all feel in love with. The house is really large, with plenty of room for a big group to spread out. We had such an amazing weekend, with Tim being very helpful answering questions ahead of time, and we will definitely be returning again!

The perfect balance of rural living and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our family reunion here and everyone loved the farmhouse. We had plenty of space in this gorgeous setting, and enjoyed the pool hall (major bonus) and swimming in the pond. Everyone slept well, despite our late-night pool tournament, and commented on how comfy the beds were. With no light form neighbors, we had perfect meteor shower viewing conditions. There wasn't much outdoor furniture but Tim hooked me up with a catering company to rent from. Tim was a great host, and very accommodating.

The perfect reunion

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a college reunion. It was amazing: "the most peaceful place I've ever stayed", according to a friend from the city. The house is a gem, and the natural setting exquisite. No wifi or TV? Excellent. We swam, we cooked, we ate (OK, we drank a little), we walked, and we talked -- and talked, and talked. Can't wait to be there again.

Beautiful Secluded Treasure

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, peaceful, secluded farmhouse in Vermont! It was the perfect place for our extended family to gather after a Vermont wedding. The views are amazing, calming, always interesting. We enjoyed swimming in the pond, long hikes on the nearby trails, adventures at Okemo, pool tournaments, lengthy family dinners and great conversation. Everyone commented on how nice it was not to have distractions of cell phones, email and internet surfing. The very large dining room table, which accommodated all of us, was a particularly nice feature. The house is perfectly equipped for a large group. The farmhouse is obviously a family treasure. Thank you for sharing it. We were all so sad to leave.
