House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
A beautiful yellow farm house situated on top of a hill with gorgeous views of the ski mountains. The newly renovated kitchen with adjoining family and dining area is where much of it happens. There is, however, a beautiful second living area for others to escape to for piece and quiet where you can make a second fire, read or just watch TV.
Newly renovated master bedroom with ensuite and outstanding views of the mountain make for a romantic setting. While at the other side of the house is a lovely, carpeted bunk room for four. Upstairs there are two more double bedrooms with a shared bath.
Wonderful restaurant a mile away if you feel like having a night off from cooking.
The house will feel like it is yours the minute you walk in.

I want to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had an amazing, relaxing week. The air was clear, the sun warm, the sky a brilliant blue and the mountains all shades of blue and green. We hiked Mount Abe, Burnt Rock, Camel's Hump and Mansfield. We relaxed at Blueberry Lake and ate some amazing meals. Plus a few creamees! It was magic. Your home is magic too. Your photos do not do justice to your home but what really amazed us were the gorgeous double mountain views. Your home was just wonderful for a family get-together. We enjoyed several great meals together, gathering in the kitchen and on the deck.
A beautifully appointed farmhouse overlooking the mountains in Vermont. The house is in excellent condition with a modern kitchen and a great BBQ and outdoor patio. The atmosphere when you enter is warm and inviting and you feel just like you are at home. There is so much to do in the area in both summer and winter. We explored the numerous swimming holes, swam in blueberry lake, hiked on the long trail and tested local craft beers. We would recommend this place to all our friends.
Thanks, Michele. The wedding was perfect! We had absolutely perfect weather and everything turned out beautifully. We so enjoyed your house and were able to have many out of town guests visit us there while they were up for the wedding. We were all wowed by the views and just enjoyed everything about the property. I am hoping that I will be able to stay there again. It is my dream house!
Gorgeous Setting Inside and Out!
The house is exceptionally well done, very luxuruous, clean, and lots of space for family and friends. We felt at home right away.
The owners were extremely accomodating... having a plumber come out immediately when we had no hot water... having the driveway plowed immediately following a snow storm.
There are lots of amenties beside the interior space. In the enourmous garage, they had snow shoes, sleds, lots of wood for making a fire in the two fireplaces. We brought our dogs and they had room to roam and play in the open back yard. They even have a huge pond but it was iced over at the time.
Our only complaints are as follows. 1) They advertise having Internet/Wifi but later told us (during our stay) it rarely works. This was disappointing because my husband and I must work a bit on vacation. 2) The hot water ran low every time we showered. So our group of 6 staggered our showers through out the day. In addition, the master bath shower had minimal warm water due apparently issues with the pipes & fixtures.
Considering the cost of the place, we expected perfection which is why we give it a "good" rating versus "average". No matter the issues, I highly recommend the place.
Since this visit, we have replaced the Hot Water Heater so there is no longer a problem with cold showers. They are all nice and toasty!
In addition, no one else has had an issue with the internet.
I stayed at Cockleburr farm with my family over the last two weeks of August 2011 (two kids, 10 and 7). The property is immaculate, luxurious and beautifully renovated. The views are magnificent. My kids had a ball exploring the area, meeting a newborn calf at the dairy farm up the hill, swimming at Warren Falls, hiking the Long Trail, etc... A wonderful vacation. Thanks for letting us stay at your house.
We LOVE this house. We have spent the last three winter breaks at Cockleburr Farm. The house comfortably accommodates our two families of large teenagers boys. The kids love the bunk room and the large living room where they can play xbox (okay, we bring it) and use the internet cozied up to their own fire. I adore the updated kitchen with every possible utensil where I can whip up a yummy meal after skiing or snowshoeing all the while conversing with the other adults in the family room by our own fire. The views of the mountain from the master bedroom are breathtaking. The kids love to skate on the pond or sled down the hill. It is minutes to Sugarbush and Mad River. Spacious, warm, inviting , well-appointed...truly our favorite home away from home.
