The space

Winter is here and we have skiing in from Stowe to the Mad River Valley! From Lake Champlain to the top of the Green Mountains, from Middlebury, Burlington, and Stowe, you can celebrate it all from our place. Great seasonal local wine and beers are on tap everywhere. Enjoy the incredible mountain views with coffee or drinks while cozy in the barn... ask about a cooking lesson (pasta making, anyone?) Cheese, chocolate, beer and wine tours? Book a massage? Skiing your desire? Just ask us...
Our very comfortable and beautifully appointed Luxury Barn Apartment is surrounded by gardens and breath-taking views on 80 very private acres. Nestled high in the Green Mountains, Lincoln is a peaceful world apart, yet Middlebury College and all its cultural resources is 18 miles away. The charming Village of Bristol is 5 minutes, 20 to the wonderful little City of Vergennes, 30 minutes to Burlington International Airport. Montreal is 2 1/2 hours to the north, Boston 3 hrs. south.

We are very close to Lake Champlain for summer water play, as well as world-class skiing at Sugarbush, Madriver, and The Middlebury College Snow Bowl and Reichert Ski Touring Center. Stowe is an hour to the north. Hiking, snowshoeing, secret swimming holes, biking, and cross-country opportunities abound just outside the front door. Numerous great restaurants, artisan cheese and bread makers and several flourishing Farmer's Markets are open year-round.

It's a perfect spot for city-dwellers to kick back for a weekend in the country, or for putting up family members during Reunions, Parent's Weekends, Homecoming and Graduations at Middlebury College. Numerous Brides and Grooms have chosen the Apartment for their honeymoons. If you would like to have a Massage, Cooking Class, or Artisinal Cheese Tour, we would be delighted to arrange it. Please let us know how we can help you plan your perfect get-away.

There are plenty of places to get well fed and caffinated nearby. Bristol is home to the incomparable Almost Home Market, the Bristol Bakery, and Snaps Diner. Dinners out are also a treat: visit with Chef Doug Mack and his wife Linda Harmon of Mary's at Baldwin Creek for fabulous locally grown everything (cooking classes!), or go to the Bobcat for a local Brew and Bistro Fare. Not to be missed either, are the sublimely French Tourterelle (Best Boulliabaise Ever), in New Haven, and the Vergennes Laundry for superb coffee and pastries, fresh oysters and sandwiches. If you have not been to visit Nancy at Sparkling (for afternoon champagne), at the bottom of College Street in Middlebury, don't miss it. Did I forget to mention Daily Chocolate in Vergennes,'s small-batch ice cream in Bristol, and all the local brews? So much more great food and drink, so little time!!!

We can acommodate two adults in a queen bed, and also have a double-bed as well for an extra couple or child. Fresh linens, fresh coffee, teas and snacks are provided by us. Canine friends are welcome only downstairs in the barn garage (the floor is heated and the space cozy), and are not allowed in the apartment bring kennel and or bed. Please be advised - If your pet cannot be out of your sight, the barn is not going to work for them!

Guest access

It is easy to get anywhere from here - For Summer fun bring your bikes, kayacks, and swimsuits. Three major ski areas are 1/2 hour away: Sugarbush, MadRiver, Snow Bowl. Stowe is an hour north...Winter toys: we have sleds, snowshoes, gourmet treats for your dog! Bring skates, skis, and boards...Hiking and cross country trails right out the front door! We supply you with a fridge and freezer in our house garage as well as coolers and a microwave for the barn.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you wish. We do appreciate our guests introducing themselves while they are here!

The neighborhood

Private, peaceful, beautiful views, convenient to everything you might want to do in our part of the state. Addison County is ideally located between Lake Champlain to the west, the Presidential Range to the east. Quaint Vergennes is 15 minutes. To the north and south, two College towns: Burlington and Middlebury.

Getting around

Four-wheel or All-wheel drive is necessary in the winter. Snow tires helpful as well. If you are really lean and mean, you can bike the two "gaps" in the summer!

Other things to note

There is no kitchen, but there is a microwave, and you can use one of our coolers for food or bring your own. There is a refrigerator and freezer for your use in the house garage. You are also welcome to use the barbeque and private patio in season. And Do Not Use your GPS when close to us, or you will end up off a dead-end road up the mountain! Please call us if you want directional advice from where you are. The Lincoln Gap Road (from the east on Route 100) is closed for the Winter, so you will take Route 125 (Middlebury Gap) or Rte. 17 (Appalachian Gap) to get to us from the east.

From Bristol, VT: Go through Bristol on Rte.116/17 north. Immediately after two black bridges, go right onto the Lincoln Gap Road. (Coming south on 116 from Burlington, turn left before the first Black bridge in Bristol). Follow the road and the river 4 miles to Village of Lincoln and turn left (north) up Quaker Street between the Church and the General Store. Take the first right up Elder Hill, pass Elderberry Horse Farm where the road flattens out and take the FIRST AND ONLY right onto Orchard Rd. North.

This barn apartment is beautiful and has a lovely mountain view. Christine's dog is so fun and sweet. The drive from Boston was a little more involved than I expected but it was worth it. We had a lovely time.

The views from this barn are stunning they change by the minute particularly in the evening. You do need to be prepared to eat your meals out as there is no kitchen but the views and the space are so stunning that they are worth the trip.

We make it very clear in our profile that there is no kitchen - I do hope you were not expecting one!

Lovely and comfortable place with a beautiful view. Stayed there just for one night but enjoyed it immensely. Highly recommended.

My husband and I drove up in a snowstorm, and the roads to get there weren't exactly all paved roads. John was up early to snowplow the driveway the next morning and by then, all of the roads had cleared up. The place is adorable and the space is plenty for two people. I wish we could have stayed longer! Christine had set us up with fruit and treats as a welcome, which was a very nice touch! My husband and I enjoyed our morning coffee and lounging around while taking our time before we went and "did anything" for the day. We highly recommend the Bobcat Cafe and Brewery just a few miles down the road. If you like veggie burgers at all, get the curry veggie burger! It was so delicious! We tried the 3 Squares Cafe in Vergennes for breakfast, also pretty delicious and ventured towards Sugarbush for dinner the second night and stopped at the Blue Stone for great pizza - that's another crazy road to navigate! Drive carefully in bad weather up there, but enjoy every minute of the wonderful, private and remote location the barn has to offer.

This place was even more quaint than had pictured, super quiet and decorated so nicely. Was super easy to relax and the friendliness of their pup Nelly made it even better. She's such a sweet girl. Loved the recommendations on where to eat! Would love to come back.

Thoroughly affable, straight-forward Realtor with a background in the arts. I love to cook for friends and wouldn't want to live with out good wine. Movies are an obsession as well, and my barn apartment is filled with great reading material and has wi-fi, but if you are the outdoor type, just walk outside for all kinds of sporting activities...Trails for hikers and bikers, ski-slopes, I am an avid gardener so the summer is filled with flowers as well as river swimming and boating on Lake Champlain. My motto? - "Living well is it's own reward".
