Barton house description

Located in the middle of the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, the Hanson House Retreat Center is the ideal place to host your wedding, business event, or simply to enjoy a getaway.

The Hanson House Retreat Center is a classic Vermont farmhouse that has been completely renovated and updated. Originally built in the 1800’s, this beautiful farmhouse has been given a facelift that brings it into today without losing that country charm that makes you relax the moment you step foot through its doors.

Hanson House boasts 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, sleeping up to 12 people comfortably. Sitting on 9 acres, with many of the original outbuildings still standing adjacent to the house, this timeless dairy farm has the look and feel of the past with all the amenities needed to make it the perfect place for a casual, or business, getaway. The house has both a catering kitchen, including stainless steel appliances and commercial sinks, and also has a guest kitchen for snagging a quick breakfast before you make your way to visit one of the many recreational activities available locally, including access to Crystal Lake, a state maintained beach that is perfect for boating, fishing, and kayaking.

Located within 30 miles of both Jay Peak and Burke Mountain, both of which offer world class skiing and snowboarding opportunities, Hanson House is the perfect way to getaway to the country without sacrificing comfort. Catering and maid service is available upon request.
