Stay in this historical homestead and discover life in rural Vermont
Glenn & Helen Bean
Why Glenn & Helen Bean chose Irasburg
The homestead was originally built by Daniel Bean in 1855, and then sold to his son George and wife Lodeska where they operated one of the largest dairy farms in Vermont at that time. The property stayed in the Bean family for more than a century until it was sold in 1965. In 2013, the property was repurchased back into the Bean family, six generations after it was built, and was fully restored over the course of the next two years.

Great home and property. We were able to ride to the VASA trails from the home. The hosts have everything in this home from towels, kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies games etc. Thank you Glenn & Helen
This farm house was amazing my kids truly enjoy this house it was perfect for our Christmas getaway!
The house was very clean and Helen and glen really have done there part on keeping it up to date. It had everything we needed to cook and bake, it really felt like home. It was big enough for us to be together and enough when we just wanted time alone. Really can’t wait to summer we will love to go back and see it when it’s all green outside.
Old farmhouse charm with all the new world amenities you need!
My family and I make our way up to VT twice a year to relax and make lasting memories. This time around, the Farmhouse was the perfect setting for our trip. Our two dogs loved the hidden paths and water behind the house. The large deck was the perfect place to watch the sun set and star-gaze at night.
If there are any criticisms I have to offer it would be that the beds were a little uncomfortable for us. Also, since some of us hadn't experienced well water before, the initial smell was jarring. We quickly overcame that by running the water for few mins before using it, or boiling it. The only other challenge was, because the house is on a busy road, it wasn't safe for the dogs to roam freely like they usually do.
Other than that, we were very comfortable and the large rooms gave us plenty of space to spread out.
I would recommend this house without hesitation! Being the perfect distance from all of our favorite places in VT, I give our stay a 5 star review.
Spacious, clean, beautifully maintained, lovely surroundings
This farmhouse is an excellent choice for a large family/family reunion. It is very well kept, clean, and comfortable. There is plenty of space, including a large, extremely well-stocked kitchen, dining room, and sitting rooms both downstairs and upstairs. The upstairs bedrooms are all very large, and the upstairs bathroom is spacious. Two downstairs bedrooms are smaller but quite nice. They were perfect for grandma and caretaker family. The downstairs bathroom is small, but it does include a shower, which is a real bonus.
The back deck is large and the area behind the house is beautiful. There is a creek nearby. The house is very private since it stands alone and is surrounded by fields, yet it is accessible because it is right on a main road. Newport, Vermont, a charming small town on a lake with good restaurants, is close by.
A great property and a very enjoyable stay!
Another great stay in Vermont!
It was our second year staying at this house and once again we could not have asked for anything more. The house and area is absolutely beautiful and well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Highly recommend.
Comfy digs with attentive hosts!
Four of us rented this place for two weeks for a writing retreat. Each of us had plenty of space to work, and the dining room and deck (weather depending) were great spots for dinners we made in the nicely re-done kitchen. It was hotter than expected, but air conditioning and ceiling fans worked well. We had a couple of minor issues only worth mentioning because I want to compliment the INSTANT, friendly, and professional responsiveness of the owners. One example: we noticed there was no umbrella out on the deck and asked if one was tucked away somewhere so we could bring it out/set it up. The owners wrote back immediately and said that they didn't have one but were ordering one with a stand to be delivered within days right to the house! The place is on a surprisingly busy rural road, but that was mitigated by the spaces BEHIND the home -- paths behind the house lead to the Black River and a little further down the river a quiet swimming hole with a fire pit and further along still a covered bridge. Very peaceful walk. Because we were all working on writing projects (internet was strong/reliable, by the way), we didn't explore too much, but the house is a short/easy shot to Newport (all your grocery/drugstore/eating out/etc needs), and is easy to get to from I-91. This is a family home with lots of history, and it really fit the bill for our stay.
