Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath . 3+ Acres In A Great Lake Bomoseen Location Near Everything

Lots of Vermont charm in this home! The bedrooms were originally horse stalls and kids just love that magic! Fully stocked kitchen, Franklin stove as well as central heat & a/c.. Large basement contains a ping-pong table + washer and dryer & small fridge. Outdoors, a very large area of mowed grass creates room for lawn games like badminton & even sledding in the winter! Crystal Beach is up the road and the lake marina is great for renting a boat or there is a site for launching your own. Indoors there is a game closet for rainy days.

NOTE:This home is NOT located on the Lake but is nearby :)

About Alison

We bought the home as a weekend retreat.. Our family enjoyed Winter weekends skiing Killington & Pico and Summer at the beach, fishing on the lake, playing badminton and entertaining family friends who came to visit.

Alison purchased this house in 1971

Why Alison chose Lake Bomoseen

It is a one-of-a-kind property and we fell in love with the idea of a horse barn being converted to a residence! It struck us as so reflective of historic Vermont. The property size of 3+ acres also appealed to us as a 'playground' for our boys. We played baseball & badminton in the Summer and went sledding in the Winter and it was a great place to invite friends to visit.

What makes this house unique

Just about everything you need for a vacation is there and you have a choice of so many things to do, either on site or sight-seeing around Vermont. It is also such a comfortable place to 'hang out'. There is a fireplace for cool days, plenty of room to play in the basement or outdoors + there is always Wi-Fi and TV.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our 3-day stay at 'The Barn'. What a wonderful spot in the Vermont woods! The cabin/cottage is adorable from the outside with the beautiful green lot, surrounded by forest. The way the Barn was so meticulously preserved is to be commended, in making it cozy. Comfortable, eclectic place to spend some valuable time. God Bless the owners for sharing this magical place.

Great setting for Fall 'leaf-peeping'. The house is set on 3+ acres within walking distance to Lake Bomoseen. Drive North or South Route 30 for great views. Mountain bike @ Killington, outlet shop in Manchester (45 min.), antique shop, visit Fort Ticonderoga or Middlebury(28 mi.), Shelburne Museum etc.Horse-back riding @ Pond Hill Ranch in Castleton. Winter you can ski locally or go north to Sugarbush or Stowe, ice-fish & skate on the Lake. At the house there are indoor & outdoor games and lots of land to play on. Fair Haven is a short drive for stores and supermarket but there are small grocery stores just a short distance from the house too.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spot for a family! The yard was fantastic for the kids to 'camp' and evening fires.

The Barn is charming and fully equipped for a comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

Although there were only two of us in the house, with the bathroom off to one end and the kitchen and living space separate from the bedrooms, the layout would be most accommodating to a group. As we prepared for the trip, Alison replied quickly to all if our questions.

Wonderful Privacy!

  • 3 of 5

We totally enjoyed the yard and the fire pit. I would not return due to the stairs leading to second floor. We found them to be quite scary. I was very concerned with my husband going up and down them without support.

Beautiful Property and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of my personal favorites I have rented so far. The property looks a little rough on the outside when you first arrive, but all of the charm is contained within. The whole house is very open, with plenty of room for a full family or two. The rustic feel might not be for everyone, but our group loved the sliding doors and exposed columns. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed and the ping pong table was used a great deal. Day trips to both Killington and Okemo were quick and easy. Will definitely recommend to friends in the future.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable! The old stall doors throughout the house add so much character. Lots of very comfortable, top of the line furniture. Kitchen if fully stocked and we prepared amazingly delicious meals. We slept very well and I felt very comfortable and at home in this rental. Our family especially loved playing ping pong and Rummikub. The game selection is top notch. There was lots of snow and the weather was a quite cold 4 degrees yet we were very comfortable. There's plenty of parking as our adult children came to celebrate Christmas (in February). Plenty of hot water for showers, laundry and dishwasher. I would highly recommend this home for a getaway. Can't wait to come in the summer! Thank you Alison for sharing your home with us!
