No matter how long the stay—whether it be a weekend, a week, or a month—this beautiful and rustic converted barn rental in southwestern Vermont is just the place. The barn sits on six-and-a-half private acres of sunny countryside and boasts long-range, southernly views of both Mt. Anthony and the Bennington Monument. Guests will surely enjoy wandering the park-like trails through four acres of old apple orchard and woodlands. Why go to a bed and breakfast when this entire rental and all of the land that surrounds it is available to glampers?

Given its southwestern Vermont location, this barn rental finds itself less than 12 minutes from downtown Bennington, but at the same time still allows glampers to feel far away from it all, given its quiet and secluded nature. Guests will find themselves picking apples, going birdwatching, and viewing all types of wildlife, such as deer, grouse, wild turkeys, rabbits, and the occasional black bear that wanders through the property. There are also excellent fly fishing conditions on the nearby Battenkill River.

What's more? Glampers can attend the summer horse shows in nearby Manchester, enjoy the world-famous Vermont fall foliage, watch the flowers bloom in the springtime, and enjoy a bonfire in the backyard of the barn rental. There are even five major ski areas located within an hour's drive, perfect for a winter getaway.

The rustic barn rental itself comes fully furnished and features a slate shower, a bear claw bathtub, a gas cooking stove, a microwave, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, cable TV, a DVD/VCR player, and Wi-Fi, as well as two wood-burning stoves and free wood to keep guests warm at night. In addition, there is central heating and a portable air conditioner, if needed.

Downstairs, there is a large master bedroom with its own gas stove/fireplace, which adds both ambiance and extra heat. There is a living room, a dining area, and another small room that can sleep up to two guests with a large electric blow-up mattress. A spiral staircase leads guests up to the large loft, which features a full-size spring mattress futon. There is also a loveseat that pulls out into a double bed.

This rustic barn rental was actually part of a large and picturesque Vermont farm that was located just up the dirt road—and is even viewable from parts of the property!—until it was rolled down on logs and converted into the luxury rental that it is today some years ago.
