Impressive retreat

  • 5 of 5

I rented the property for 8 nights as I had to finish a project and needed to be away from my home distractions. As a result I stayed in the house most of the time. We found a spotlessly clean and well ventilated property. The house was incredibly well stocked with all types of kitchen utensils, linen and towels galore and even brand new toothbrushes!

Best of all was the seclusion and quiet I was seeking. The house is located a quarter mile off a small road. There were no neighbors and I did not see a single car or person while on the property. Yet, the house s not isolated as it is only a five minute drive to a well supplied grocery store.

The mountain views were just awesome. The pond!

I took some breaks hiking for hours behind the property (as permission was granted by the neighboring owners). The hike led me to the most amazing green forests I have seen.

Gail was amazing during my stay, always available and supportive (not that I needed her help as everything worked to perfection). We hope to return.

The house is absolutely beautiful !!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to say that this was the most beautiful property ever. The surrounding view of the mountains and woods was just breath taking. We rented this property with our family during Christmas time, and I have to say it was the best time of our lives . We went sledding , the kids went ice skating on the nearby pond that was on the property. We cooked and made a bond fire outside( there is a specific area for that on the property). The house was clean, it had all the essentials that you needed. The bathroom upstairs had a large jetted bathtub the kids and adults loved using it! They also have a laundry room which was perfect because we were able to do our laundry through out the week. The owner Gail was quick to respond if we needed anything, she was doing everything above and beyond for us, and we appreciated that. Our family is still talking about this wonderful experience ! Thank you Gail!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Alla for providing this wonderful review. I am extremely happy that you and your family enjoyed yourselves. We are glad to provide various entertainment opportunities on the property. But with that being said, I feel I must caution other potential renters that any and all activities including the pond are at your own risk. There are certain dangers associated with the pond - such as thin ice especially since it is 12 feet deep. You and your family are welcome back anytime.

Very Accommodating

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great experience at the Barton house, and the layout accommodated us well. It is true that everything you might need in a kitchen seems to be there! The beds and pillows were comfortable, and there were enough blankets and clean towels for all of us. The two sofas in the living room were a little more roomy than the impression we'd had from the website, so that was nice. Putting two chairs on each end of the dining table, and a booster seat on another chair for the baby, allowed for 10 people seated at the table. There are also 3 picnic tables outside, (and a small patio with patio furniture behind the house). It was a little challenging figuring out where the tableware and plates were, as they were more so in the dining area, rather than in more intuitive spots -- but once we realized, we found plenty of necessary items. We made smores around the small firepit twice, and did plenty of stargazing in that remarkable night sky. While Barton house, and Barton, are definitely in a very rural part of VT, We found the ride to C&C market in Barton to be very convenient...(5-10 min)., and they had everything we needed through the week. Parson's House coffee shop in Barton was also a nice stop for fabulous coffee and great sandwiches. The ride to Crystal lake was also only about 10 min. or so, although we preferred driving a bit further to the Lake Willoughby area where there are several mountain hikes to experience, and some awesome Giffords brand ice cream at Willoughby Lake Store/Millbrook's. The Barton house has a nice small pond which our small children enjoyed with grandpa in the paddleboat; and due to the large field behind the house it looks like it would be a great spot for sledding in the winter. Finally, Gail was super friendly, and that made our experience especially nice. Thank you much!

Repeat visit to the NEK

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend I had my second stay at this house. Like the previous time, Gail was a great host. She was accommodating to our early arrival and the house was perfect. Last time we were here was the middle of summer and this the middle of winter, the house was exactly what we wanted for either season.

A nice break in VT

  • 5 of 5

The house was really clean, the kitchen has all the amenities you'll need and the beds were cozy with their flannel sheets. Craftsbury is only 40 minutes away for cross country skiing and Jay Peak is 45 minutes for downhill. Lots of hiking nearby, too. Of course, pizza from Parker's Pies, just two miles away is a must. The house had all you need for a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you liked the house, and the location! Parker Pie is a very popular spot with the great pizza and the wide variety of local micro brewery beer selection. Hope you come and visit us again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were extremely happy with our stay at Gail's "Barton House". We totaled 8 adults, 6 children, and 2 dogs. We all had plenty of room and were very comfortable. House was fully stocked which included toys for kids, a paddle boat, large BBQ, fire pit, and so much more. My wife and I were amazed that the TV was not turned on once. The house was very clean and accommodating. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!
