About the property

4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath farmhouse with amazing views of mountains and meadows

This 200 year old quintessential farmhouse has been completely renovated! It is located on 15+ acres, surrounded by several hundred acres of farmland secured in the Vermont Land Trust, and has amazing views of surrounding mountains. It is located just a few miles from the Villages of Pawlet, Dorset, Rupert, Wells as well as Lake St. Catherine. The Vermont Summer Festival (VSF) is just around the corner, so its the perfect home for Horse Show Families. Nearby to historic Dorset and Manchester (classic New England Villages) and many local ski mountains such as Bromley, Stratton, Killington or Pico.

The brand new kitchen has all new appliances, a farm sink, restored antique cabinets and new countertops. It is the perfect place to cook while entertaining friends and family in the open family room or attached outside deck.

The beautiful dining room features seating for 8 people and stunning views of the meadows out back. There is new wood burning fireplace and a large flat screen TV in the living room, a spacious mudroom, a library/sitting room, a huge front porch with adirondack chairs, and a beautiful deck off the kitchen with stunning views.

The home is impeccably decorated with a mix of antiques and modern amenities to create the perfect ambiance for traditional Vermont living. It comfortably sleeps 13 in four bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and comfortable seating. Another bedroom has a queen bed and one has a set of twin beds. There is a large bunk room with cathedral ceilings and 3 sets of bunk beds (6 twin beds) and one twin bed. Additionally, there is full laundry in the basement (washer and dryer).

The home contains a widescreen TV. Phone for local and long distance calls (with use of credit card). Alarm clocks in all bedrooms. Hair dryer, local maps, and firewood also provided.

About Glenn and Laura Callen

Our family fell in love with this area over 15 years ago and has been coming up from NJ on weekends and extended vacations. We recently built a house in Pawlet and now live here full time.

Glenn and Laura Callen purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Glenn and Laura Callen chose Pawlet

Over the years we have passed this house and often dreamed of buying it and renovating it. When the house came for sale two years ago, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to make it ours. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

Amazing home and property

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful house situated on a picturesque property. Laura was attentive to every detail and communicated frequently with us regarding our stay. We had a fantastic time in Pawlet, but also enjoyed Manchester, which was only 30 minutes away. Laura even went as far as bringing over two extra space heaters when the temperatures dropped during the polar vortex. The owners then offered us another night on them, which we would have willingly accepted had we not already booked another home in VT for two nights thereafter. All in all, this was a lovely, historic home, which we would highly recommend.

Pawlet Gem

  • 5 of 5

A superbly renovated house with all the comforts of home. The house is situated on a beautiful piece of property with views of the mountains, expansive green fields, grazing cows, and a barn across the road. It provided a wonderful spot for a family getaway with room to entertain. Owners stocked the house with basic necessities to add to the convenience and comfort. Bunk room was perfect for the children who enjoyed playing with the toys provided by the owners. The house was convenient to all the area attractions making it a perfect location. That said, the road in front of the home can be busy and noisy at times. We enjoyed our stay and appreciate the owners' hospitality and responsiveness as we reached out to them prior to our visit.

mineola, ny

wonderful house that was only outdid by its owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is as good as advertised. It is an absolutely amazing renovation where the pictures barely do it justice. We had a group of 4 couples all with kids 3-7 years old. The bunk bed room was literally a $12/hour babysitter as we rarely saw the kids after returning home from the mountain. The details you probably haven't seen include a wonderful dollhouse, endless amounts of action figures and toys, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, dozens of cookbooks, prefect sledding hill in the backyard, the list goes on. We've been doing monthly rentals in VT for years and this house blows them all away.

Last thing I would like to mention is the attentiveness of Glenn and Laura. They were on top of everything and wonderful hosts. The amount of time and detail you put into the house is amazing. All we can say is looking forward to next year and your next project. I'm assuming someone will be making you a rediculous offer to buy this one outright....hint hint

  • 5 of 5

Your home is beautifully decorated the fireplace keep the home warm .it was brutally cold that weekend. The only suggestion I have is if you could leave places in the community that you like it would be helpful if you have a list i.e. restaurant ,stores , bars ,historical places in the area. Wonderful place to take time out and relax.thanks for sharing your home!
