Lisa and I enjoy the outdoors. We love Vermont for the skiing, mountain biking, traveling, hiking, and people. I've competed in numerous events across the country. We live a very active lifestyle......One day at a time. ;-) Kevin
Kevin purchased this House in 2016
Why Kevin chose Lyndon
I purchased this as an opportunity to give back. I've stayed in numerous HomeAway places and have always enjoyed pleasant stays and met the nicest people in our travels. We would like to do the same. The place showed me I could have families enjoy themselves together with friends. Plenty of room for everyone The Pudding Hill came to us as a quiet, peaceful place to unwind, detach and just relax. The house, and location have so much to offer. Kevin

Great time for both young and old . Youngest 10 months and oldest is 88 years old . Beautiful property located near hiking and biking trails and lakes for swimming .
Fun nights with the children and adults sitting around a camp fire making s’mores and telling stories . Plenty of board games .Picked blueberries and raspberries on property for breakfast pancakes. Huge kitchen for our large family gathering of breakfast and dinners .
Impressive rehabilitation of a century and a half old property, with a caring owner!
We stayed here nearly a week over the 2019 Presidents' Day holiday, skiing at Burke and Stowe. There were eight in our party: three couples, two little kids, plus a dog.
Everyone had a wonderful time and Kevin was ever at-the-ready in case we had any questions or needs.
This place has sleeping possibilities for 14 as we counted them. (15, if you have and count a dog and use the large in-kitchen crate[!])
The sleeping arrangements are perfect for three or four couples and up to five-to-six kids. Three couples have three adjacent upstairs bedrooms served by the front staircase. Those three bedrooms are of different sizes and bed arrangements: the largest has a queen plus a twin, the next has a queen, and the smallest has a full. (Note that this last room is a bit tight, but certainly not too-so, and inasmuch as we were hosting we took it.) Served by a second staircase leading up from the wonderful kitchen/family room is what we think of as a dorm room with three twins, two of which are trundles, and which give this room nice sleeping for up to five kids or very-familiar singles/couples.
Connecting the three 'adult' bedrooms and the 'dorm room' is the second floor two-door bathroom (and yes, both doors lock).
Overall, this is an outstanding setup for a multi-generation family or close friends with kids.
The first floor is quite spacious, as the pictures show.
One couple can use (we didn't) a sofa sleeper in the sitting room.
Around this floor are three TVs: one in the kitchen/family room; one in what was likely once a dining room and is now a game room; yet another in the 'theater room', which is complete with half a dozen recliners for movie night. (Note that the kitchen and theater room TVs have Amazon Firesticks; we didn't use or check the third one.)
Both bathrooms are capable, and the cute use of plumbing parts on the first floor one deserves a chuckle! (But also note that they are plumbed in common so separate use of showers can preclude an unexpected dash of cold water.)
The main feature of the house is the wonderful kitchen/family room. It is well equipped and cozy-warm, with a perfect gas heating stove that is of current issue with an optional temp setting, and a giant eight-person+ picnic table that can bring everyone together at mealtime.
Bottom line: This is a delightful and very spacious home away from home (pun intended). Warm in winter, nicely and fully equipped, and with a caring and creative owner. Big five-star props!
As advertised!!! Charming!!
This place is awesome! Plenty of room, comfortable, and close to VAST trails and CDA airport. Would love to stay there again!!
We picked the perfect time to visit and a fantastic place to stsy. Kevin & Donna were fantastic hosts and responsive to questions prior to arrival and post arrival. Clean, comfortable quintessential farmhouse that while rural is convenient to everything we enjoyed. This place has character, lots of windows and is far larger than it looks on the inside. Two stair cases ( kitchen and then from of the house) to go upstairs to the bedrooms. Plenty of places to relax in and outside. Strong wi-fi (had to work for part of my stay) and every comfort of home you can think of.
Check out The Pizza Man (Wing Night on Monday’s, and they deliver to this location), Miss Lyndonville diner close by. St Johnsbury is 15min away and you should check out Pica Pics for a taste of something different with Filipino Cuisine. Or Junipers for a nice dinner.
Close to Maple Grove Farms for maple products, Ben & Jerry’s, Dog Mountain, Stowe, Cabot Cheese, and the Von Trapp Family for Lodge for touristy things to do. Numerous trails for walking, hiking and biking. Highly recommend!
We rented this house to be close to our son's wedding. We needed a place with a kitchen and enough bedrooms for wedding guests. This is a beautiful farmhouse that is very comfortable and comes with everything from a welcoming basket in the kitchen to comfy comforters on the beds and fluffy towels. The owners were immediate in helping us resolve any problems. We wish we were able to stay longer to enjoy the house/yard and area! We would definitely recommend this to place!!
Cheryl and family were easy and wonderful guests. We would definitely rent to them again and welcome them back to enjoy the house and the NorthEast Kingdom.
Thank you Cheryl for the lovely review.
We really enjoyed staying at the house! We were contacted before we arrived and told we should please be in touch if we need anything. The house had so many spaces for us to use over the long weekend we were there. It really felt cool to know we were staying in refurbished/updated farmhouse! The grounds were beautiful and MASSIVE. We had a great time playing outdoors and enjoying the weather.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Cindy and her family were great guests. They left our home clean and were very easy to deal with.
We would definitely recommend her to stay at your home and we would welcome them back again!
Thanks Cindy and we’re happy you enjoyed our home, the “farmhouse”!

House is ideal for those with snowmobiles looking to ride the VAST trails in Vermont, less than 1/2 mile to trail network.
Ideal place for people looking to ski multiple ski areas, centrally located to a few of the bigger ski areas. Jay, Stowe, Bretton Woods, Burke, Mad River Glen, Smugglers Notch and Sugarbush......all within driving distance.
As we like to say; about a cup of coffee drive, music on the radio, conversation to the mtn and big conversation on the way home; sometimes not true, but good anyway......!
Life is good!!
In the spring, summer, fall.....ideal spot for riding the Kingdom Trails, so close to the 100 mile mountain bike network.
Easy access to the area lakes, state parks and lots of hiking trails.
Short drive to the White Mountains too. :-)
So much to enjoy, just come and explore
