No matter what your pleasure you'll find it near our 500 sq ft, 420 friendly VT Cozy Hollow, owned by a local artist. High pine ceilings add country charm, separate, but part of the main house with insulated locking doors separating the 2. The soundproof bedroom offers a pillow-top queen bed, room darkening shades, & white noise machine. Enjoy the lovely view of trees, gardens & sunsets from the suite, outside on the 2 person swing, or a relaxing evening in the hot tub.
“Mark and Kesta’s place was lovely. The space was better than described/pictured - it’s obvious a lot of time, care, and creativity went into making the suite what it is today. We appreciated all of the little touches - from the artwork to the popcorn maker, French press, and bottled of water waiting for us when we got in. All of their instructions were super clear, and the notes around the suite were helpful as well. Mark and Kesta provided a bunch of great recommendations for our trip (snowshoeing at Sleepy Hollow, breakfast at Parkside, etc). And to top it all off, the hot tub was AMAZING (especially after a long cold day outside). Mark and Kesta were extremely accommodating and responsive. They made us feel very welcome and our only regret was not booking a longer stay! We’ve already recommended this space to a bunch of our friends, and we will be back in the spring once the weather is a bit warmer!”
The Barn at Grousewood Forest is located just 35 minutes from Burlington and 30 minutes from Middlebury. If you are looking for a unique get away, we welcome you to our converted barn. We are following the CDC cleaning guidelines to ensure the safest environment for our guests. We have great hiking trails for snowshoeing and exploring the woods, teaming with wildlife. Deer, bear, bobcat, owls, porcupine, wild turkey, grouse and more. Enjoy a fire outside or relax in front of the hearth.
“A perfect little couples getaway! Neat, clean and cozy with funky New England decor. If you're looking for a little taste of VT, you'll find it here. We only wish we could have taken advantage of the outdoor fire pit and Adirondack chairs, but.... we were there in February for Valentine's Day. It was 8 degrees F below zero that night. The Barn is across the driveway from the house, but all windows face away from the house so you do have privacy, and the windows have nice shades. Never met our hosts. They respected out privacy. We did meet Murphy the next morning, and he was very friendly and well behaved. Word of of warning if you visit in winter: the gas fireplace heats the main space well, but the floor remains cold and the bathroom a bit chilly even with the door left open. So bring your woolly socks and slippers, and let your partner warm the toilet seat for you! ;) Again, it was 8 below that night. Hope you enjoy the place”
This is a spacious guesthouse/retreat where you can relax and unwind. There are great views and walking down the road is serene, with open fields bordered by woods and teaming with wildlife. Nestled in the foothills of the green mountains, we’re just 10-15 minutes to restaurants in Bristol or Middlebury and 30-40 minutes to the lake or skiing. Come explore all that Addison County has to offer and you’ll quickly find why so many people choose to stay.
“I had such a relaxing stay here. Ben is a thoughtful and welcoming host, and I felt right at home. The loft is very clean and has everything you need, including lots of storage space. I was here for a week and a half, including through some heavy snow, and I was plenty warm and cozy. The views are beautiful, and I had a chance to check out some great trails nearby thanks to Ben's recommendations. I hope to be back soon!”
