Completely and authentically restored circa 1750 colonial home available year-round. Surrounded by thousands of uninhabited acres; property is secluded, yet easily accessible, located on quiet country road with the nearest neighbor 1/2 mile away, yet just a few miles from Rte. 110 and the typical Vermont small town of Washington.

Home is complete with wide-plank flooring, original beamed ceilings, and more, and includes two bedrooms (sleeps six comfortably), livingroom with fieldstone fireplace, den, modern full bath with tub shower, new half bath, new kitchen, and large flagstone rear patio. All conveniences including color TV, DVD & VCR, stereo, telephone, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and tastefully furnished in a very comfortable decor.

A few notes from prior vacationers:

After a very picturesque hike, we really enjoyed relaxing by the cozy fireplace J.D., Middlefield, CT

It is difficult to put into words how much we enjoyed ourselves we appreciate the perfection of the house and pond, and the lengths you have gone to maintain them A.M., New York City

We had a great time exploring this part of Vermont, and were always happy to return to the tranquility of the house J.F, London, England

Your home has all the right touches in all the right places. We would love to return R.F., Concord, MA

We spent the first week of our honeymoon here and we couldn't have picked a more peaceful and relaxing place. The house and surroundings were exactly what we hoped for F.P., Glascow, Scotland

Our kids had a wonderful time feeding the trout in your pond R.P., Amherst, MA

Beautiful house, beautiful property, beautifully maintained K.S., Baltimore, MD

My family (my husband, my son and his wife & their dog, and myself) had the pleasure of spending a week at this peaceful, beautiful home. We found the home to be very comfortable and felt right at home as soon as we pulled into the driveway. The property surrounding the home is picture perfect. We did see hummingbirds the week we were there, along with deer and turkeys. All of the appliances worked, which due to disappointments at other rentals, I greatly appreciated. The property owner was easy to work with and he graciously responded to my emails to answer any question I had. The town of Washington Vermont was quaint and the location afforded us easy access to Montpelier and main roads to other major and smaller towns in this beautiful state. I am sure this will be a home I will return to many times. I highly recommended this rental - anyone who rents it will not be disappointed. We returned home well rested and with wonderful memories. I suspect anyone who enters the door of this home will be glad they did.
