Cook’s Country

I’m pretty sure $3000/week is beyond our budget, but wouldn’t this be lovely…

Originally part of a large dairy farm, this 200-year-old farmhouse (known locally as the Carver house) was completely renovated in 2007. The property includes a large horse barn, a dairy barn, an antique brick smokehouse, and a milk house. The house is located near Manchester, Vermont in a small, classic New England village. The farmhouse is currently used to film the Cook’s Country public television show and is also available for rent.

The kitchen – the same kitchen featured on the television show – is complete with DCS ranges and ovens, Kohler sinks and fixtures, and has a wonderful view out back of the barns and meadows. The dining room is capable of accommodating at least a dozen guests, the living room has a working fireplace, and there is a mud room, wraparound & screened-in porches, and a brick patio off the back.




  1. We have stayed at many VRBO’s when we travel with our entire family and this was one of our best experiences! The owner is very kind and very quick to respond to inquiries or concerns. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and very clean (the whole house was so clean!). The bedroom and bathroom set up worked so well – the house uses its space perfectly. The house was perfect for our group of several adults and children – all with separate needs. There were babies that needed to nap, children who needed to play (the backyard was great!), and an adult with a severe medical condition that needed peace and everyone found the space for what they needed. We even entertained friends from in town and it went so smoothly. I have since stayed in another VRBO in another state and it was lousy in comparison. Thanks so much – it was a great vacation!

    Oh, yeah. Very pretty! As in, pretty sure it’s waaaay beyond our budget, too.

    1. Pretty enough to charge $3000 a week…that’s cheaper than a visit to the White House, but still!
