  • Perfect Autumn at High Shelter Farm

    "High Shelter Farm is the epitome of perfection. In addition, Grace, the host, is the personification of elegance. Since the family resides on the premises, nothing is wanting & questions are answered when asked. All this, and more, is there just for you. Clearly, this 270-acre paradise is the finest property we have yet to rent, regardless of location or price. If you’re looking for privacy, peace and solitude, this is the place. If you want a vacation property nearby to major resorts, look no further. If you’re looking for awesome scenic views from inside or outside the premises, this is it. If you want a winter wonderland, we would believe that you’d find it here. Randy, Grace’s husband, told us that we hit peak-week for autumn foliage. If it can get any better than we experienced, we can’t imagine where that could possibly be. We took so many gorgeous photos just traversing the ½ mile driveway that it took over 30 minutes just to make it up to the house. Another ½ hour melted away as we drove from the house back to the highway, snap, snap, snapping all the while. When hiking on well-marked trails, or coming and going, we were always treated to antics of Tess & Liza, beautiful, young & playful farm pups that never seemed to run out of bubbly energy. Ranch-raised apples were plentiful to feed Molly & Summer, the appreciative donkeys that always brayed when we were spotted. Nearby ducks, chickens, and sheep added to the ambiance along with fresh eggs, a king-size bed with an excellent mattress, large bathroom with 2 sinks, BBQ grill on a private patio, internet access, & fresh flowers. Oh, we were invited to & did partake of the many herbs, fresh each day, for our salads. Large-scale maps, lists of things to see and do were right at hand. While motoring to explore the surrounding countryside & mountains, we were greeted by Vermont beauty and hospitality everywhere we went. But we were constantly beckoned back early each day to enjoy all that High Shelter offered. What could be better?"

  • Pristine Rustic Excellence

    "If you are looking for a true and traditional 'camp' experience on the lake with your family and friends, do not miss out on this rare experience at Barney Point. The location could not be better......it sits on a point with sweeping views of Lake Champlain. The house is large, cozy and just pretty amazing. You will find everything you need to prepare meals in the open kitchen and enjoy them out on an enormous dining table on the big screened porch overlooking the lake and property. Lazy cool mornings in the great room with a fire going....the best! This is a place that has been lovingly maintained with an effort to keep its original charm in tact. It feels like 'home' right away. My family was there for a week and did not want to leave. We will be back for sure!"

  • Presidents Day Weekend

    "I stayed at this farmhouse for 3 nights with 12 friends (all of us in our early 20s). We decided it would be fun to spend the long weekend in Vermont where we could ski, drink, and relax. Upon arriving at the house we were excited with how secluded it was, and how much snow had fallen! The house is off a main road, all the way at the end of a cul-de-sac. The decor in the house was a bit interesting (it had a very old/antique barn feel to it, but with a lot of crazy wall paper), and we loved it! The farmhouse was easily able to accommodate all 13 of us... and we could even all eat dinner together or play card games around the big dining room table. The house was an easy 10-15 minute drive to Mt. Snow. While some friends went skiing, the other members of our group either went tubing, snow shoeing, or lounged around the fire in the house. There's a convenient market about a 5 minute drive away where we stocked up on groceries. The market also had really great quality prepared foods. Meredith, the owner was VERY accommodating and easy to get in touch with. Overall, it was such a nice getaway from New York City, and we would definitely stay here again."

  • Wonderful condo/resort

    "We enjoyed our stay greatly. The condo was just as it was described and served us well during our week stay. The service at the hotel was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better location. We'd definitely stay again!"
