About this listing
My home is a beautiful and spacious two story dwelling located on the 2nd & 3rd floor of a historic barn in Waterbury. Each spacious bedroom has a hotel quality queen size bed and 3 rooms have sky lights. We are located between Ben and Jerry's and the Cider Mill. You can walk the community path to downtown Waterbury (#1 Beer town in america) or jump on rt. 100 and be in Stowe in 10 minutes or Burlington in 30 minutes. Access to walking trails and the river make this the ultimate home base!
This iconic barn was once a working Dairy barn that was converted into a wooden toy factory in the 60's. It then became an iconic ski restaurant in the 70's and operated with acclaim for 40 years. I purchased and started renovating the space in 2015. Everyone is blown away by how spacious this place is. Huge bedrooms with high quality queen size beds. Three rooms feature sky lights and all have spacious closets. There are two full size living rooms with flat screen TV's and amazon fire sticks for streaming your favorite shows. 8-10 people can seat at each the two dining tables and there is a full size, fully equipped kitchen for preparing meals. We have a restaurant and yoga/wellness studio under and next to the apartment ent. Noise can be an issue in one of the bedrooms but ear plugs are an easy solution and we work hard to accommodate everyone to ensure a wonderful stay. The property is adjacent to one of the top gold courses in the state and you can walk along the community path to down town Waterbury. Takes about 25 minutes. I keep a few nice mowed trails on my property which is part of an important wild life corridor. You can explore the beautiful thatcher brook and may even be able to pull out a fish or two.
You will have access to the entire residence and the decks and outside area that includes fruit trees and 2 acres of walking trails. There is a great deck and a BBQ grill.
Interaction with guests
I will be staying at my folks place right around the corner and am available to help with anything most anytime. I am also renovating and opening the space below so I am always around.
Waterbury Center is a true Vermont town. My entire family lives within 40 acres. We are home to some of the finest craft foods in the world including Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, Heady Topper beer, Green Mountain Coffee and the Cider Mill. I love doing AirBnb and hosting great guests. That being said I am not a hotelier and people expecting hotel like accommodations and concierge services are not my ideal guests.
There is tons of parking at my place and you have easy access to Stowe, Waterbury and the Interstate. There is also a nice 'quiet' path that starts across the street and you can walk to downtown Waterbury (probably 20-30 minutes one way).
Other things to note
I have a restaurant downstairs that is not super sound protected from the apartment. One bedroom in particular is effected when we have bands or late night party's. We try to be reasonable and happy to provide some ear plugs but if you are a early/ sensitive sleeper this room in particular will not be for you:)
I have been very lucky with amazing guests having hosted over 100 air bnb guests. I have some to expect guests to take the little bit of extra time at checkout to leave the place as they found it or better. Please strip beds of sheets and place all dirty sheets and towels in laundry hamper that is provided. Please clean dishes and cookware and empty trash into trash can out side.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

I'm a born and raised Vermonter who moved home to open a small bar after teaching middle school for 10 years. The Waterbury/Stowe area is very special to me and I look forward to hosting you and sharing the best place in the world with you!
