Sleep in a lovely old barn! The barn is located behind the house on a quiet road on the outskirts of Johnson. It is two stories with two full beds upstairs (bedding included). Downstairs has a kitchenette with a stovetop, oven, sink, fridge, and cookware; shower with hot water and toilet. The Gihon River is across the street and a covered bridge is a short walk.

The barn has been made into a cozy and habitable space, but it is not insulated and there is no heat. There are fans to use when it's hot and blankets when it's cool. It is dry, with real beds, a bathroom, and space to cook. Please look at the photos and note you do need to go under a beam to get to the beds. Way better than camping!

10 minute walk to town with groceries, coffee, and the Vermont Studio Center. 20 minutes to Stowe. One hour to Burlington.45 minutes to Hill Farmstead Brewery.The Rail Trail is a five minute bike ride away and the Long Trail runs through town. Will pick up from the Long Trail!

Butterbox Barn was the perfect setting for me and my 2 girlfriends who love to cabin camp in Vermont. Our host, Jen, had everything we needed to feel right at home, including a stove, sink, small fridge, shower, and toilet. There was a firepit supplied with wood for burning. Unfortunately we only had one clear evening for a fire since it rained for most of the week. The upstairs loft was a comfortable for relaxing before turning in for the night. The only thing that was a bit inconvenient was the toilet wasn’t as private as we thought it would be. Luckily we are really close friends so we made it work. Overall, Butterbox Barn was a charming, rustic place for a getaway. We will definitely come back again! 😊

This barn is absolutely beautiful and worth the stop on your Vermont adventure! It was rustic and full of magical features. It has everything by you need from a a warm bed, to kitchen supplies and a hot shower. We felt right at home in this whimsical spot!

Having not been out of my hometown in the past 18 months (being an essential hospital employee it’s been nigh impossible to get time away) I stumbled across some beautiful photos of the barn on HipCamp. I read the reviews and took a plunge! It was my birthday weekend and everything was just perfect from the welcome notes, to keeping in touch with us both beforehand and throughout - being a Mainer I talk to everyone like I’ve known them forever so when Jen stopped by to see how things were it was like talking to an old friend. The barn is spacious and welcoming, and the favorite activity was to find all the interesting knick-knacks around (keep your eyes out for the old school compass!) we walked into town and grabbed coffee at the local coffee truck (thanks for that suggestion Jen - best coffee AND savory croissant we’ve ever had!). 100/10 would recommend and we hope to be back next year!!

Butterbox Barn was a unique opportunity to stay in a converted antique structure in a quiet neighborhood. The space has everything needed for a comfortable stay but also retains a feel of vintage and funky. Will definitely make a return stay.

Jennifer's barn was just perfect for a quiet retreat in the midst of a lot of life transitions. It was charmingly rustic and funky in just the right ways. I only saw Jennifer once in passing, but she was available and communicative at every turn. I would absolutely recommend Butterbox Barn.
