Property type house

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

This classic post and beam barn house is beautifully situated on the edge of the flats of the Landgrove valley with amazing views across 10 acres of meadow and forest - southern Vermont's finest!

In winter, cross-country ski off the covered back deck and enjoy warm fires in the fireplace. In summertime, enjoy drinks and meals on the deck while enjoying the view and the seclusion. The location is ideal for hiking, long walks and bike rides, and just 'getting away from it all'. Yet you are only five minutes from grocery and hardware stores, and the house is equipped with Wifi and Dish HD TV.

The downstairs has an open and airy floor plan with a fully furnished kitchen that overlooks the living and dining areas with two amazing views, the fields and town hall in one direction and the fields and forest to the left. There is a woodburning fireplace and a cozy library corner with a large variety of books. There is also a private master suite, a powder room, and mudroom with wood storage and storage for skis/boots/bikes. Upstairs has 2 full bedrooms (one with twin beds, one with bunks and twin bed) and additional queen bed in a loft area. There is also an attic/loft space for additional sleeping or play space for children.

5 miles from Bromley, 15 miles from Stratton, and Okemo, and 15 minutes from shopping and restaurants in Manchester.

About The Owner

I have spent all or part of every summer of my life in Landgrove.

The Owner purchased this house in 1981

Why The Owner chose Vermont

Our family has had connections to Landgrove for over 50 years. My grandparents restored an old dairy barn and farmhouse in the 1960's. My parents loved the area so much that they built this barn house down the road in 1981.

What makes this house unique

The valley of Landgrove is one of the most picturesque places in Vermont. It is remote and peaceful and quiet, yet you are only a five minute drive to the nearby shopping center. The barn is cozy and great for a family or a group of friends. The covered deck is a great place to enjoy the wonderful views across the fields. There are many comfortable areas to relax with a good book or sit and chat with friends.

Another Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had yet another amazing two week visit to this beautiful home in Landgrove! We loved every minute of the peace and serenity of this house, with easy access to activities - lots of trips to the Weston Country Store for the kids! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Want to return immediately...

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 6 summers we have rented houses in Peru and South Londonderry; this Landgrove house is the best, by far. Sitting on the porch at any point in the day or evening was serene. The vista changes with the light, making it endlessly watchable. The house was the perfect size for us, comfortable and well-appointed with everything needed. Of all the houses we've rented, this house had the easiest-to-use outdoor grill, tv, dvd player, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, and wifi. From experience, we expected issues with all of these and had none. The location in Landgrove was convenient for everything we wanted to do- ice cream in Weston, breakfast in Chester, Bromley, Magic Mountain, shopping in Manchester- not to mention delightful walks right out the door.

Having six cows with their 2 month old calves out back was best of all. Unlike my family, I'm not an animal fanatic but I grew to eagerly look for what they were up to and was charmed watching the little ones run and play. The mooed occasionally; I wished they mooed more often. There was zero smell, a concern I had. The perfect nature show.

I recommend this house without reservation and am eager to return.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home again and loved it even more this time - the upgrades that have been done since last summer (new sofa, window seat) make the house even more enjoyable. And you cannot beat the peace and serenity of the view of the fields and cows grazing....Cannot say enough great things about it!

WE LOVED THIS HOME ! We rented with our close friends (4adults) in Feb. It was an absolutely beautiful weekend.. It was picturesque Vermont at IT'S BEST!!! It was just so wonderful ...we really wanted to just stay there and enjoy the ambiance.., Although, you are in this remote area, you are so close to Weston, Bromley , Magic, & best of all...if you are a cross country skiing enthusiast RIGHT OUT THE DOOR !

Well equipped, immaculate,beautiful views, comfy beds very charming I could move in right NOW!

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous winter landscapes to enjoy from the coziness of the barn's informal living room or from the cross country ski trails, which are in the open field. I was able to arrange for lessons from the pro at the Landgrove Inn. An easy drive from Manhattan!
