Overview

Property Details

Updated: Apr 9, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Custom home built by the owner in 2004, taken from the design of an historic carriage barn. Located on a hill in an old orchard, it has great views of the Green Mountains and the surrounding area. This is a quiet neighborhood made up of rural estates and small operating farms and orchards. Middlebury College is only 5 minutes away. There are 3 levels to the house, with the main living area on the 2nd floor. Light filled great room with windows in every direction, including the open cupola from above. This is a great space for a large family gathering or couples quiet getaway; also perfect as an artists retreat or for a group of skiers, riders, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. In the winter there's warm radiant heat under hardwood and travertine floors. No drafty old farmhouse or poorly built condo here. Everything is custom made including some of the furniture. The main level on the 2nd floor has an open kitchen with soapstone counter and stainless appliances, dining and living area; and a master bedroom. The main bathroom has a built in washer, dryer and a large walk in travertine shower. This level also has a large open deck with patio furniture and bbq grill. The upper loft has two spaces separated by a curved balcony. The south end is for reading and relaxing with a large couch and a desk and a printer. The north end of the loft has two full size beds tucked well out of the way for a good nights sleep. The ground floor entry was made for people of the outdoors with built in cubbies and storage spaces for stowing ski gear, snowshoes and backpacks. This level also has an extra bedroom with a queen bed and a futon. There is also a full bath located just off this bedroom. This is a great house to relax, read, write, paint or create. It's also a great jumping off place for a variety of outdoor activities.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We were in town for a swim meet at Middlebury College and stayed with two other couples. The space was perfect! The home is clearly a labor of love and the custom work is beautiful. The location was great, close to the college and also a perfect street to walk on and enjoy the views. We highly recommend staying here!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
A group of us, 2 couples, stayed for a short weekend getaway in January. This house is absolutely perfect for a quiet retreat when you need to unwind. The amenities are fantastic, the house is perfectly comfortable, and the details in the home show how much care and pride the owner takes in the property. Between cooking a great breakfast with local products to watching the cathedral mules in the pen in the farm next door, this home was exactly what we were looking for. I recommend this property to anyone, from families planning a trip or friends looking for a quick weekend vacation. Whenever I visit this side of Vermont, I will return to this home.

Memorable family weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and my 83 year old mother stayed at this delightful Middlebury Carriage House to celebrate our son's winter graduation. It was the perfect place to relax in between festivities, so close to the College and we had some wonderful family dinners. The house is immaculate, the showers are fabulous, the kitchen is both beautifully organized and well-equipped. Plenty of room for all to have private time, yet the open kitchen-living area is great for a gathering. We loved the views from all directions. Would recommend it in any season and hope to return.

A Truly Civilized Vacation Abode

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a month in this lovingly and expertly designed and crafted house, situated in the midst of an old apple orchard (our daughter baked a pie and made applesauce when she visited). The neighbor to the south keeps a herd of donkeys, should you happen to be into mid-sized animals.

The owner lives at a distance but is very responsive to renters' needs. When the fridge went out, he called us from Alaska, where he was traveling. By then the housekeeper had brought a chest with 40 pounds of ice in it, called a repairman who was there the next day, and provided a small backup refrigerator in case the primary one went out again (it didn't).

This was as civilized a vacation rental experience as one could ask.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! It's always a pleasure to have thoughtful folks stay and enjoy the house and surroundings. Sometimes things go wrong - like a refrigerator on the fritz. I'm fortunate to have a great support team of housekeepers and caretakers to come in at a moments notice to handle any unforeseen issues; It's especially reassuring come winter time; although getting snowed in for a long weekend could be fun too!

What's not to love?

My husband and another couple stayed for a long weekend w/ our dogs. From the moment we pulled up onto the property we were in love. The house is absolutely fantastic! Beautiful layout, CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN, the house was fully equipped and the owner Noel is a complete doll! We rent homes 3xs a year and they have been wonderful but this is by far our favorite! We will be back again soon! Thank you!

Great Place to Relax!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent the Christmas and New Year holidays at this house in Cornwall this year. There was plenty of private space, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the details in the house's architecture were just beautiful. The town of Middlebury -- a five minute drive -- is one of our favorites. We got lots of snow while there, and the driveway plowing was prompt. We found everything we were expecting and more here. Highly recommend!

Location

Activity and Interests

Middlebury is in the heart of the Champlain Valley. The college town offers great restaurants, galleries, shopping, theatre and movies. Cultural and sporting action always close at hand. Several recreational areas and ski resorts are all less than 45 minutes away - but you won't need to stay in a cramped condo at the end of the day. Winter and summer climbing in the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks are superb. Lake Champlain is 10 minutes away. Burlington is 45 minutes with all the good things a small city has to offer. There's never enough time to do everything this area has to offer. I've lived in the area for 30 years and still find more unique things to do.
