About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

True country home on Silver Lake. Swim, boat, ice skate, sled from the back lawn. Unique 4+ BR house offers comfort of stone fireplace, hiking, swimming, boating, snowshoe, x-country skiing just out the door! Moments walk from Country Store for daily needs. Seasonal and surge pricing. Both bathrooms have tubs & shower (one with hand-held shower, not overhead). The nearby Barnard General store was revived with help from the community and is now run by lovely young couple, Joe and Gillian.

This house, carefully tended by the family who has owned it for two generations, is simultaneously spacious and cozy. The four bedrooms are spaced widely for privacy, with three upstairs and one on the ground floor. For your convenience, a bathroom is located on each floor.

The kitchen is well-equipped, with a large refrigerator and extensive shelf storage, suitable preparing a humble breakfast or a feast for a dozen guests.

The centerpiece of the great room on the ground floor is a large stream-stone fireplace, surrounded by couches and rocking chairs. A few steps takes you to the sun room, running the entire length of the house and looking out over Silver Lake.

Out the back door, you will find a seating area with a fire pit, overlooking the slope down to the lakeside. The lake itself provides boating and swimming and boating in summer, and skating in winter. An extensive network of trails can be hiked, biked or run year-round, although skis or snowshoes might be necessary in the snowy months.

Beautiful house in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, very cozy and homely decor and set up that made it a very comfortable stay. The kitchen had all the utensils necessary, and sitting by the fire each evening is always a delight. We were 6 adults and a two year old and there was plenty of space for us all. There is a corner store a couple of hundred meters down the road for any emergency food needs, and the setting by the lake is incredibly. It is a very quick drive to other local attractions so we were able to explore all that we wanted to in the area. Diane was very accommodating and reachable as well so absolutely no complaints!

Farmhouse at Silver Lake - Barnard, VT

  • 3 of 5

We loved the house and it had just about everything we needed for a great winter weekend getaway with our family. We weren't aware that there was an apartment below the main house that is also rented out - it wasn't a big issue as we really didn't cross paths with the other renters that weekend, we just didn't realize that based on the VRBO listing.

It's great house and a really pretty setting on Silver lake. We did some snowshoeing on the lake and went into Woodstock (about a 20-25 minute drive) for some walking around and "beverages". It was pretty cold though so we spent a lot of time hanging around the grand field stone fireplace ... and there was plenty of split wood for us! We could have used a couple more chairs so we could all site around the fire (there were six of us).

The owner (Diane) is very nice to work with and very accommodating for special needs/requests. I would definitely recommend the "Silver Lake Retreat" (you can google it) if you are looking for a quiet weekend away from it all on a nice pond, just know you might have some neighbors below. Thanks Diane for a great weekend.

Great place to relax

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to stay with family or friends. Great open space on the lower floor to enjoy the lake view and stay warm around the fireplace. We had a unusually cold weekend in November that we relaxed around the fireplace.

Nice cottage on beautiful lake

  • 4 of 5

We loved the quaint cottage and used it as a base camp to view fall foilage. Cottage could use some comfortable furniture but the overall experience was pleasant.
