Overview

Awe-inspiring views and a peaceful vibe come together at The Big Barn Farm to serve up a fabulous vacation for any season! The Big Barn Farm is a charming 25 acre Farm centrally located in the Green Mountains and surrounded by almost 1000 protected and undeveloped acres. The property consists of a large Farmhouse, multiple outbuildings and a Landmark 5-story Historic Barn. This 4-season paradise is a wonderful place to ESCAPE, RELAX and PLAY!

This rental, a modern, comfortable, renovated 2nd story condo with all the amenities (and great internet) in the charming Farmhouse, is only 5 miles to Ludlow/Okemo. It provides easy access to everything but it's far enough away to relax! Close to: Skiing, Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing, Hiking, Biking, Swimming, Fishing, Restaurants. [House has 2 listings - lower level condo can also be rented.] Perfect ski rental for Okemo or Killington. Perfect summer rental for Echo Lake, Lake Rescue and Plymouth State Park.

The Farmhouse condo has been recently updated and modernized. After a great day of recreation, store your gear/toys in the spacious & safe parking area and enter the Farmhouse to find plenty of hooks/storage for your gear. Once inside the cozy setting, relax, pour a beverage & soak up the stunning mountain and valley views through the bay windows of the large sitting/dining room as you contemplate what you'll cook up in the fully modernized kitchen. At dusk, head outside to the bonfire pit and enjoy roasting marshmallows by the warm glow of the fire and fading sunset.

In this sunny, private and secure upstairs condo, the Master is a large, comfortable room with a deluxe queen bed, a twin bed and a desk for remote work/school purposes. Children or guests will love the bright and cozy second bedroom with a queen bed. If you have a little person, there is an organic toddler floor mattress that can be placed in any of the sleeping areas.

The kitchen has brand new high-end appliances and is outfitted with everything you'll need to serve up culinary delights. The bathroom has a full-sized tub with rain shower head and a large capacity washer/dryer to clean up from the day's activities.

When the snow melts, the farm gets set up with outdoor picnic seating, a grill, Adirondack chairs and the most relaxing hammock you've ever experienced. Truly paradise!

You'll feel like you're away from it all - even though you are only a short jaunt from the heart of everything that Central VT has to offer! The Ludlow/Cavendish area (5 miles away) is an amazing culinary destination! Lucky renters may experience the tasting room at the winery right next door (open occasionally - Brook Farm Vineyards/Bates Mansion). And the recreation opportunities just outside the front door are unparalleled.

Nomads at heart, New Englanders by birth, Travelers by choice. We have visited more than 100+ countries and picked up bits of language and some crazy customs along the way! Many of our earlier years were spent wandering with nothing more then we could fit on our backs. Years passed, a couple wildly awesome kids showed up and some crazy properties found their way into our lives including a one-of-a-kind Miner's Cabin in the one-of-a-kind town of Crested Butte (truly one of the most beautiful places either of us has ever been) and, more recently, a gorgeous 25 acre former Vermont dairy farm which, when we found it, was a time capsule to the day it closed in the 1940s! 80 year old hay, anyone?

The Crested Butte Love Shack: We lived full-time in CB for many years and consider ourselves lucky to be stewards of the Crested Butte Cabin (since 2002!) - its a place filled with good energy and happy vibes, something you can feel the moment you step through its door!

The Big Barn Farm: We've lovingly restored this iconic Vermont Farm to its former glory and you can sometimes find us snowshoeing through the fields or picking apples from the secret orchard while sitting in the tractor bucket. What a breathtakingly beautiful place!

Whichever property you're interested in, we welcome you to our slice of paradise!
