Barton House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, sleeps up to 14 people

Privacy & nature. Lots of walking paths on many acres of land. Although it is secluded, you are only 2 miles from town.

The house used to be a late 1700's tavern for the settlers of the area to get a meal and room to sleep the night while traveling the Hinman Settlers Road.

Barton Vermont - Lots to do and see!: The house is located just outside of Barton and 1/4 mile from the Orleans County Fairgrounds. Barton has many cultural and natural activities. Crystal Lake is in Town and is known for boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking and has a State maintained beach area. There are about 7 lakes in the area to choose from. There are many farm stands to purchase fresh vegetables and fruits along with visits to dairy farms if you like. There is a golf course in town, a good sized grocery store and lots of nice people. Jay Peak and Burke Mountains for skiing are within 30 miles. Vast snow machine trails are with 1/2 mile away from the house. There is too much to mention -come and visit and I'm sure you will return.

Very Accommodating

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great experience at the Barton house, and the layout accommodated us well. It is true that everything you might need in a kitchen seems to be there! The beds and pillows were comfortable, and there were enough blankets and clean towels for all of us. The two sofas in the living room were a little more roomy than the impression we'd had from the website, so that was nice. Putting two chairs on each end of the dining table, and a booster seat on another chair for the baby, allowed for 10 people seated at the table. There are also 3 picnic tables outside, (and a small patio with patio furniture behind the house). It was a little challenging figuring out where the tableware and plates were, as they were more so in the dining area, rather than in more intuitive spots -- but once we realized, we found plenty of necessary items. We made smores around the small firepit twice, and did plenty of stargazing in that remarkable night sky. While Barton house, and Barton, are definitely in a very rural part of VT, We found the ride to C&C market in Barton to be very convenient...(5-10 min)., and they had everything we needed through the week. Parson's House coffee shop in Barton was also a nice stop for fabulous coffee and great sandwiches. The ride to Crystal lake was also only about 10 min. or so, although we preferred driving a bit further to the Lake Willoughby area where there are several mountain hikes to experience, and some awesome Giffords brand ice cream at Willoughby Lake Store/Millbrook's. The Barton house has a nice small pond which our small children enjoyed with grandpa in the paddleboat; and due to the large field behind the house it looks like it would be a great spot for sledding in the winter. Finally, Gail was super friendly, and that made our experience especially nice. Thank you much!

Repeat visit to the NEK

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend I had my second stay at this house. Like the previous time, Gail was a great host. She was accommodating to our early arrival and the house was perfect. Last time we were here was the middle of summer and this the middle of winter, the house was exactly what we wanted for either season.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, we never tire of hearing them. It makes this worth while when you know the customers have a nice relaxing and enjoyable time. You and your guests were very neat and respectful as well and we hope to see you back to visit again.

A nice break in VT

  • 5 of 5

The house was really clean, the kitchen has all the amenities you'll need and the beds were cozy with their flannel sheets. Craftsbury is only 40 minutes away for cross country skiing and Jay Peak is 45 minutes for downhill. Lots of hiking nearby, too. Of course, pizza from Parker's Pies, just two miles away is a must. The house had all you need for a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you liked the house, and the location! Parker Pie is a very popular spot with the great pizza and the wide variety of local micro brewery beer selection. Hope you come and visit us again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were extremely happy with our stay at Gail's "Barton House". We totaled 8 adults, 6 children, and 2 dogs. We all had plenty of room and were very comfortable. House was fully stocked which included toys for kids, a paddle boat, large BBQ, fire pit, and so much more. My wife and I were amazed that the TV was not turned on once. The house was very clean and accommodating. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and comfortable house. 8 of us stayed in Barton and enjoyed the house and the local area. Communication with Gail was quick and pleasant and she was very willing to make things even more convenient for us. The beds were plentiful and comfortable. Would stay there again. Breakfast and Parsons and lunch at Parker Pie along with beer at Hill Farmstead. What a great stay!

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

This property is very clean and in a beautiful location. This is our second year staying here and we love it. Plenty of space! The kitchen is fully stocked. Everything is very clean and well kept. The only thing we would have liked was for more of the grass to be cut and maybe have a table or seats outside the property. I would defiantly recommend this property to my friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very good review. I do apologize that while you were visiting for the 4 days, the lawn mower service was broke down. I am surprised that the eight outdoor chairs and wrought iron table were not enough outside seating, but I have considered adding a picnic table and will look into that more seriously now. We appreciate the return business, and want to accommodate as much as we can.

This house is in an ideal location with lots of privacy but only 2 miles from town. There are lots of wildlife that cross or live on the property. Our property adjoins another 250 acre property that is basically undeveloped. Barton is a small town, but provides all the basic needs a person could want. There are two banks, a post office, pharmacy, restaurants, a mini mart/gas station, 2 auto service locations, a hardware store, public library and a good size grocery store. Another popular attraction is the Hill Farmstead Brewery which is world renowned for it's micro brewery beers - only 14 miles away.

Other Activities: We have a man made pond on site with a paddle boat for guests to use - free of charge. The Northeast Kingdom is canoe and kayak heaven. There are so many lakes, rivers and steams to paddle on that it is hard to choose. The scenery is magnificent and the waters clean.

Golf: There are several golf courses in the area with the first one being right in Barton. It has beautiful scenery while you golf being on a high spot on Telfer Hill. Orleans golf course is only 9 miles away with club house and restaurant on site. Newport & St. Johnsbury also have nice golf courses only about 20 minutes in either direction.

Ski: We are centrally located between 3 major ski areas. Burke Ski Area is the closest at 22 miles away and is very family friendly. Jay Peak is 33 miles away and boasts the most natural snowfall and has indoor skating and indoor water park. Stowe Mountain Resort is 53 miles south of us and also has an Alpine slide in summer.
