At the top of Town Hill Road, this cozy and spacious 1800's farmhouse welcomes you to explore Vermont, enjoy the countryside and connect with friends and family. The farmhouse has two kitchens, two living rooms, six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a yoga studio, making it ideal for hosting large groups or retreats where guests have use of two kitchens and ample space for lounging. The 700 square foot studio is equipped with baseboard heat and three far infrared cove heaters by Heating Green.
Please keep in mind that the first 19 reviews are based on a portion of the home whereas the current rental has expanded to include the entire farmhouse which has an additional kitchen and additional bedrooms. As owner of the farmhouse, I enjoy hosting and am happy to offer recommendations and support you in accommodating your group. All groups are unique so I encourage you to ask questions so that I can help you prepare for your trip. From our local photographer to catering options or local businesses, there's plenty of year-round activities for people who are active and enjoy summer or winter sports.
The Writer's Room is a separate single room rental located through a private entrance on the west side of the farmhouse. The Writer's Room is attached to the West End of the Farmhouse -- there is a double door separating this rental from the Vermont Farmhouse rental. If you would like to add the Writer's Room as a part of your rental, please inquire directly. Otherwise this space might be occupied by other travelers.
Though I am sometimes on property to greet guests and provide support, I will provide you with numbers to local contacts who can help service any house related concerns that may arise in my absence. I love hosting groups and getting to meet guests who stay at the farmhouse; I encourage guests to reach out as needed -- I'm happy to help!
