Charming Post and Beam Barn Home

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, sleeps 10 (4 of these are bunk beds best for kids).

This charming rustic post and beam barn home is on 5 acres and is fully equipped with comfortable furniture and filled with antiques, memorabilia and artwork fitting a Vermont ski and 4 season vacation home. Most rooms overlook a beautiful bubbling stream and small pond. Large lawns invite child-friendly play and games. Attached deck features gas grill and outdoor furniture. Large barn and garage (built summer of 2010) provides protected parking for your vehicle and driveway provides outdoor parking for numerous friends and guests. Across the stream is access to Green Mountain Forest land for pristine hiking and snowshoeing right out the back door. Our bridge was washed out during Irean last summer. However, the stream can usually be crossed during summer months without it.

Kitchen was updated last year with new granite countertops, sink, range, refrig, dishwasher, etc and affords an efficient and pleasant work area.

Sleeping accommodations consist of 3 bedrooms and a loft. The Master B/R has it's own private full bath, flat screen TV and queen bed (Tempur Pedic mattress). The 2 guest rooms share a full bath. One guest room has a queen bed and flat screen TV, while the other features bunk beds and a collection of antique wooden toys. The large loft has it's own private bath, bunk beds and a convertible couch (double bed), skylights and a TV.

Manchester is a 20 minutes drive, affording abundant outlet shopping as well as legendary Manchester dining and sightseeing. In winter Stratton Mountain Skiing is 10 minutes drive with similar convenience to Bromley and Magic Mountain. During warm months, Stratton Golf School, Golf Course and Tennis are just 5 minutes drive.

Gourmet grocery store and a 24-hour 7/11 convenience store and gas station are located just a 2 miles down the road, assuring that you'll never get stranded for essentials.

This classic ski and vacation home was built in 1992 and we are the original owners. We work very hard at ongoing maintainance and it remains in excellent condition with updated appliances and infrastructure (Just in past 2 years, have built garage, installed brand new heating system, water filtration system, kitchen stove and refrig). It has been carefully updated with conveniences like flat-screen TVs, wireless high speed internet, unlimited phone service, satellite radio, skylights, etc. It is equipped for fun family relaxation and play and is an ideal home for your own family vacation memories.

Our family has owned this Barn home since it was built in 1992. Our children grew up skiing at Stratton and Bromley and the house holds wonderful memories for us all. Now that our children are adults with their own children, although they live far away, they always make time to come back to our happy Vermont home. We decorated and equipped the house for family fun and entertainment. We hope you will like it as much as we have. Thanks for interest in our listing.

Why STEPHEN PORPORA chose Winhall

We had rented homes in the Stratton area for 4 years and realized that we wanted to be here long term.

What makes this house unique

Whether spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, this house is close to everything fun in Southern Vermont. Our children and grand children love playing on the property, in the stream, pond, the hot tub and hiking and snow shoeing in the adjoining forest. The house has all the modern amenities we have wanted for convenience and play.

Excellent house, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

The Barn is a perfect ski house with all the necessary amenities including a fireplace, tons of comfy couches, tons of beds, big kitchen table, etc. The location was ideal, only a 4 minute drive from Stratton. Furthermore, Steve was an excellent host; very timely responses, instructions were clear and complete, and very easy to work with. All around 5 stars.

HOME Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (of 5) rented The Barn for the entire 2013-2014 ski season and we left in April with countless incredibly special memories. The property's advantages are endless... Prime location, loft for kids, frog-filled pond, sledding hill, garage for those snowy days/nights, view of the stream from an enormous window, cozy fireplace, and the moosehead that hangs above it! The owners were a pleasure to work with (Steve is one-of-a-kind!), and the caretaker kept the grounds extremely well-maintained. If you are looking for the perfect getaway for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, shopping, or just relaxing with friends and/or family, this is the place for you. We already miss it!!

Our stay in Bondville

  • 5 of 5

The home was so clean, cozy and family friendly. There was an ideal mix of recreational sports and shopping close by. The house layout was exactly as described in the ad, and the owner was very accommodating about answering my questions and providing written guidelines prior to our arrival, so there were no surprises. We truly had a wonderful stay!
