The Farmhouse

Our 9-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom farmhouse is the perfect option for a big family vacation. With a large living and dining area and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, you and your loved ones will have space to spread out while enjoying each other's company. Formerly operated as Harvey's Mountain View Inn from the 1960s until the 1990s, this beloved home has helped create many memories over the years. We are honored to carry on that tradition! Guests who rent the farmhouse will have exclusive use of the heated in-ground pool, which is open Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend.

More about the space

*2024 POOL SEASON: MAY 17th - SEPTEMBER 9TH* The house has two "wings", with 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms in one, and 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms in the other. On the first floor you will find two of the bedrooms, which each have an attached full bathroom (see photos for more details). Living and dining space, kitchen, and a half bathroom are also on the first floor. All of the other bedrooms and full bathrooms are on the second floor. The original part of the home was built in 1809 and has been added onto over time. It has lots of character and charm, so expect some sloping floors and other quirks typical of a home this age. While the bones of the home are old, many important aspects have been updated within the last two years — including the beds, linens, most appliances, most plumbing fixtures, and more. Our private water source runs through a top-of-the-line filtration and softener system, so the water coming out of the tap is completely odorless and tasteless, and safe to drink. Note: There are a couple of spots on the first floor where there is a step up/down between rooms. If anyone in your group is mobility impaired, please inquire with the host for more specific details. The pool is typically open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. If you're interested in booking close to those holidays and use of the pool is important to you, please inquire with the host before booking. During the winter, the house stays toasty warm with propane heat throughout. There are four different heat zones allowing guests to customize the temperature in each part of the house. We have a generator which automatically switches on in the event of a power outage. The living room has a 60" Samsung Smart TV, and guests are welcome to log into any app they choose for streaming. We have excellent fiber internet so streaming works great! On our 17-acre property is another house, a small 2-bedroom cottage, which can be booked separately from the farmhouse. The cottage is situated around 100 yards away from the farmhouse, uphill and behind the barn, so you should not cross paths very often -- if at all -- with guests who may be staying there. The only structure on the property that both houses use is the garage: the trash/recycling room on the back side and the EV charger on the front side. Depending on the timing, you may see cows grazing in our fields! But don't worry, they are polite and keep to themselves behind a livestock fence.

Other things to note

We have some great trails for walking/biking/cross-country skiing right in the neighborhood! Sugarbush, Killington, Mad River Glen, Middlebury Snow Bowl, and Rikert Nordic Center are all within a 20-40 minute drive. Rochester center has a nice park, a few great restaurants and cafes, a grocery store, gas station, hardware store, and more. Being right in the middle of the state, it's also the perfect launching point for day trips to other destinations like Waitsfield/Warren (30-40 minutes), Middlebury (40 minutes), Woodstock (50 minutes), Stowe/Waterbury (1 hour), Montpelier (1 hour), and Burlington (1 hour 30 minutes). Getting around is easy with a car, although we do highly recommend having 4WD/AWD and/or snow tires during the winter (starting in November), and 4WD/AWD during the late winter/early spring (mud season). Being in rural Vermont, there are many dirt roads, including ours, which can get a little slippery from snow/ice/mud. Our road is well-maintained by the town, and our driveway is plowed and sanded by a private contractor during the winter. You'll want to download an offline map to your phone in order to navigate in areas of spotty cell service.

Guest access

Guests have access to all rooms in the house (except for the basement which is unfinished and only where the mechanicals are located), the yard surrounding it, the parking area directly across the street from the house, the pool and firepit areas, and the fields south of the house down to the pond.
