Overview

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Bakersfield - The Farmhouse

Farmhouse, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 13-16)

Experience the tranquility of your very own PRIVATE VERMONT FARMHOUSE ESTATE nestled in its own 156 ACRES OF UNSPOILED LAND with breathtaking views of beautiful Mount Mansfield! We invite you to relax and enjoy our spacious and tastefully furnished 4400 sq. ft. 15 ROOM Farmhouse and let its elegant charm and beauty re-energize you with hope and optimism and take you back to a time when life was simple.

From the expansive deck, you can see wildlife meandering through your open fields, the quiet beauty of nature surrounding you and plenty of nearby Vermont winter sports awaiting your arrival! PERFECT FOR HUNTERS! By night, thousands of stars sparkle across the sky on a heavy blanket of white snow! The full moon rising is an unforgettable event.

Just inside the Farmhouse from the deck, the warmth from a crackling Soapstone Fireplace awaits you. The completely refurbished Farmhouse boasts 7 bedrooms (5 with queen beds, 1 with two twin beds and 1 with one twin bed) and 3 bathrooms large enough to accomodate up to 16 people very comfortably. All bedrooms are completed with antique beds, top of the line Vera Wang mattresses and finished with carefully chosen quilts, crisp white linens, extra pillows, bureaus and reading lamps.

From the upstairs bedrooms, take a walk down the open wooden staircase and upon entering the 'great room' the eye is drawn to the beautiful large planked floors, and exposed hand-hewn ceiling beams. Decorated with elegant (but not too fussy) country furnishings, plenty of sturdy rocking chairs, and the 52' FLAT SCREEN cable TV, this room is the perfect place to catch up on your favorite sports or a good movie. For those who aren't TV lovers, two other living rooms are available for conversation, reading, or a game of chess.

The expansive and newly appointed Farmhouse kitchen is complete with double convection oven, oversized Subzero refrigerator, dishwasher, and beautiful custom built pickled maple cabinetry. The kitchen is open to a large dining area which boasts a farmhouse table large enough to accomodate up to 16 people overlooking the Farmhouse, it's rolling hills and Mount Mansfield! The dining area also provides a Farmhouse sideboard/hutch complete with flatware, place settings, napkins and table linens, wine glasses, mugs, and a few other items necessary for your simple, or formal, dining needs. Our Farmhouse is complete with all bed linens, towels, washer and dryer, and a few extras. You need only bring your clothes and other personal items!

Head outside for a wonderful day of hiking to the top of your own mountain, or sitting waterside of your own on-site wading area and waterfalls! Settle down with a picnic near the water, lounge in the hammock for a lazy day nap in the summer, or go sledding with your family followed by a hot cup of cocoa or your favorite brew!!

While our Farmhouse is quiet and private, consider snowmobiling, we are near the VAST snowmobile trails! Also, our farmhouse is well-suited for hunting groups, and many other outfitters are available for various outdoor activities, including dog-sledding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sleigh rides, and snowmobiling. The Farmhouse is located approximately 20 minutes from Smugglers Notch ski area, 25-30 minutes to Jay Peak Ski Resort, 1 hour from Montreal, and 1 hour from Burlington. Just ask and we'd be more than happy to help make your plans. If you prefer other activities, we recommend local winerys for wine tastings, small cafe's, delis and other eateries, Fall corn maze, many Antique shops, Vermont products, golf courses within 5 minutes, various local artisans, and Art gallery. Most recently a local artisan and family business is now offering fresh made goats milk cheese, and Goats Milk Soap. Stop in to see the goat cheese production process and enjoy a wonderful conversation with a great family!

Amazing farmhouse, great hostess

  • 5 out of 5
My family rented Angela's farmhouse for the weekend of my wedding. I live in VT but this allowed most of my out of state family and friends to stay with us, have brunch the day after the wedding, etc. It's an amazing house. Historic with just the right modern updates. Grill, fire pit, enough seating for 16.. what more could you ask for? Angela even left a bouquet of roses for me.. she really did think of everything! If I had had a small wedding of just immediate family, I would have gotten married at this lovely place!! Angela was very responsive when I inquired more about the farmhouse before booking and during the many months before our arrival. She really pays attention to the details!

Only issue with the stay was the basement fridge wasn't working. We alerted Angela and she offered to keep some of our food at her own home since it wouldn't be possible to fix during our stay! I also wish it had been more clear if long distance calls could be made or not- even if they were billed to us later! Cell service is spotty, so that would be have been helpful

Overall- I miss the farmhouse and hope I will one day have a chance to return. Having the farmhouse as a "homebase" during my wedding made the day so lovely, especially with the fireplace on the cold day in September!! We had guests staying overnight between the ages of 25 and 80 and we all loved it. My mother didn't want to leave :)

Beautiful spot for a baby shower or any special occasion

  • 5 out of 5
We were very excited to rent the farmhouse again. This time we rented it for my daughter's baby shower. A couple of summers ago we rented it when she was married at a nearby golf course. The setting is perfect for special gathering. When we arrived, we were greeted by flowers, champagne, fruit, and the warm glow of a fire burning in the wood stove. The guests loved the setting, and those who had to travel were able to spend the night with us. Angela, thank you for your hospitality and for taking such good care of us. We look forward to our next special occasion at the farmhouse.

Great Group Vacation Home

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed with a group of 6 couples this past weekend to ski Jay Peak Mountain. The house was set up beautifully when we arrived. Angela took the extra step to have music playing and the fire going for us which was much appreciated after our long drive. The kitchen has everything you will need to make big group dinners, even things we were not expecting such as a crock pot and pizza stone. We actually brought our own of each because we have never rented a house that had those before.

The house was very clean and had the perfect amount of space for us all. We would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the large back yard the home has as we were not venturing outside much this past weekend besides to ski because of the frigid Vermont temperatures.

Thank you very much to Angela for making our stay a relaxing and enjoyable.

Wedding

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at the farm for our wedding and anniversary week last year. The experience was unforgettable. Our whole family enjoyed staying with us and we had a wonderful time skiing very close by, hiking in the snowy woods surrounding the property, as well as going to Burlington to shop. The town could use some TLC but the home is comfortable, warm, and very accommodating to a large group. We all had fun cooking together in the kitchen watching the snow fall. Our dogs were welcome which is a huge benefit because they can't be left out. Overall we loved our stay. Angela was so easy to coordinate things with.

Absolute Perfection!,,

  • 5 out of 5
There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful a time we had! My husband and I got married in Stowe but used the farmhouse as our home away from home for the week. All of our friends came to stay with us and we had the rehearsal dinner there as well. The house is charm personified and Angela goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. She is so lovely to work with and we really feel as if we've also made a fabulous new friend! The setting is beautiful and the house has all the amenities you could ask for. The kitchen is fantastic, the living rooms big and cozy and the bedrooms super comfortable. No one wanted to leave at the end of the week and if you had told us we could move in tomorrow we would have sent for our belongings! It made an already special week that much better and we are so very grateful to Angela and her wonderful family.
It was very easy travel to wherever we needed to go... From supermarkets in Enosburg to the Ben & Jerry's Factory. This is one of those rare occasions where the experience tops your expectations. We would recommend this wonderful home to anyone. We ranged in ages from 11 months to 80 years and everyone had the time of their life! Thank you Angela! We hope to come up for another visit soon. Maybe a first anniversary treat!

Our Wedding Day

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I rented the farmhouse for our wedding 2 weeks ago. We had a small wedding of 16 people and the farmhouse was the perfect location for what we wanted to do! It was furnished beautifully, and we really appreciated all the little details Angela took to make our stay comfortable. In my correspondence with Angela before the wedding she was super helpful, giving us the names of places to find flowers, a cake, and when I mentioned that I was looking for the length of the table so I could bring a lace tablecloth she said that she would take care of it! And when we showed up she had 3 laid out for us to choose from! When we arrived the house smelled spectacular- clean and like the country apple candles Angela had lit for our arrival. She had left us a beautiful bouquet of white roses and written us a sweet note welcoming us! There was enough space for everyone to have a bed and a pool table and foozeball table to play with. There was also a fire pit out back which we thoroughly enjoyed, and 2 grills on the porch to accommodate large groups. We literally had everything we needed. We could not have asked for a more wonderful place to have our wedding. It is not something we will soon forget, in fact we have already talked about when we start a family one day how we would like to make a return trip! Thank you Angela for all your wonderful hospitality!
