Overview

About the property

Originally part of a large dairy farm, this 200-year-old farmhouse (known locally as the Carver house) was completely renovated in 2007 and was used for many years as the set for a public television cooking show. The property includes a large horse barn, a dairy barn, an antique brick smokehouse, and a milk house. The house is located near Manchester, Vermont in a small, classic New England village.

The kitchen is complete with DCS ranges and ovens, Kohler sinks and fixtures, and has a wonderful view out back of the barns and meadows. The dining room is capable of accommodating at least a dozen guests, the living room has a working fireplace, and there is a mud room, wraparound & screened-in porches, and a brick patio off the back.

The home is chock-full of antiques. It comfortably sleeps 10, in 4 bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and 2 of the bedrooms include twin beds. We also have two twin air mattresses available as well as a crib and a pack 'n play. There are 2 1/2 baths -- both full baths feature beautiful tiled showers and one includes a separate bear-claw tub. There is also a full laundry in basement (washer & dryer).

The home contains a Google widescreen TV with access to Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos, a DVD player, Direct TV service, and general high-speed wifi access throughout the house. Phone for local and long distance calls. Alarm clocks in all bedrooms. Hair dryer, local maps, and firewood also provided.

Perfect for Any Occasion

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for an anniversary celebration, but it would be perfect for any occasion. The layout of the house is wonderful and the kitchen - as you might expect - is a dream. There were plenty of towels and linens and even laundry facilities in the basement. The management team is so thoughtful and responsive - a fabulous "Welcome to Vermont" blueberry pie and cookies were delivered our first evening in the house. I can honestly say that we have never had a better experience in a prettier location. Like most of the others who have stayed here - we want to return again.

A beautiful, welcoming home for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family came together for a few days in Rupert Vermont to spend relaxing time together. There was conversation, games, laughter and - of course cooking. The house is beautiful with a lot of attention to detail. It was just a short drive to Manchester [check out the Northshire Bookstore]. Our two year-old granddaughter celebrated her birthday during our stay and really enjoyed the collection of books, puzzles, riding toys and even the children-friendly eating utensils. We will be back!

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but magnificent things to say about this house! We rented the home for Thanksgiving and for a houseful of foodies it was an amazing 3 days. We cooked more food than we could eat and brought home so many goodies. Even my nephew got the cooking itch and only wanted to cook more. And all the recipes came from the Cooks Country/ American Test Kitchen cookbooks in the house. The house is immaculate, modern with that farmhouse charm and we had a spectacular time. We could not have picked a more perfect location to celebrate Thanksgiving in a dream kitchen setting. When we arrived on Wednesday afternoon, all busy prepping for the holiday when there was a knock on the door and a local bakery in West Rupert dropped off a couple of fresh pies. They were delicious! We also gifted left a bottle of the best maple syrup from Two Pigs Farm! Two of the nights while walking the dog or running out to the porch to get more wood for the fireplace we heard cows mooing. And of course the church bells next door was a delightful treat throughout the day. Perfect setting, we did not want to leave! The kids love the board games as well. The property management was fantastic to work with and the process of renting the home was fantastic. We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the home and are definitely planning a trip back hopefully in the warmer weather so we can enjoy the outdoors.

Cook's Country, Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with an absolutely gorgeous & fully functional kitchen and a lush lawn for whiffle ball and other yard games! We cooked dinner for 10 people every night during our 4 night stay and we couldn't have asked for a better suited vacation home. Every inch of the house is well maintained, very clean and very welcoming – it's a great mix of modern amenities and old farmhouse charm. The property management team is very friendly and attentive, the entire process was easy and very well communicated. The area is quite rural but there's a rail-to-trail access just up the road, great for cycling and runners. There's also a few local swimming holes within a 15 minute drive and if you're looking to shop and or eat out, Dorset and Manchester are both less than 30 minutes away. We all hope to visit again soon!

Great Stay In Rural Vermont

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for fans of the Cook's Country TV show or any of Christopher Kimball's works. Very well equipped house. Beautiful, comfortable home with lots of room to invite guests to stay with you. You'll find a wide assortment of books, cookbooks, television viewing options and board games. Beautiful porch and enough rocking chairs for all. The kitchen is well stocked with pantry staples and basic supplies. A great place to stay for a relaxing vacation.
