The Comstock House is a very well known landmark in the Central Vermont region. Run as a family farm for many generations, the residence and land has been most recently run by the present owners as a successful bed and breakfast. Uniquely suited to either continuance as a bed and breakfast or providing a fabulous family residence in the wonderful community of Plainfield. A complete and total renovation/restoration included moving the house away from the road and onto a new foundation. Great care was taken to preserve original fabric while incorporating all new systems including heating, wiring and plumbing. A nostalgic sense of old rural Vermont permeates all the living spaces due to original flooring and periods colors. Expert local craftsmen produced the millwork and kitchen cabinetry using local species of wood. The setting of the residence is nothing short of extraordinary. Mature specimen trees were retained during the move and new plantings and flower beds were established. The long distant views to the west are of the Worcester Range with hills and valleys in between, all of which is viewed from most rooms and from the rear deck. All this while looking over the fertile fields and well managed woodlands. Located minutes from Plainfield Village, the property is 20 minutes to Montpelier. A truly outstanding house and property.

    Oh We went through Plainfield every week — we have friends in the Danville area and we lived in Barre. This is a beautiful home an the owner has very nice taste. I would prefer natural woodwork.

    I love the simpleness.I thought about posting this house if only for the two over one windows. Their views are fantastic, appears to be looking out to the Adirondacks.

    I’ll just camp out in the dining room with that fabulous view through the french doors. This house sends out good vibes.

    Oh… oh!!! I didn’t even care what the inside looked like – it sold me on the first picture! Vermont has to be the most beautiful place in the world, and I’ve been trying to get my husband to agree to move there for 40 years. So far, no luck…. and I don’t think it’s going to get any easier now that he’s in his 60s!

    You are right that Vermont is the most beautiful state — all of New England is beautiful. We moved from there because we had to but we still have children up there. But the winters are long, cold and snowy. I do not miss that but I do miss Vermont and New England.

    Guinan, Good to hear that you miss York PA. Most people we meet here usually do not have good things to say. We do like it here except for the crime among the younger generation. This area of PA is so rich in early American history.
