Experience Rural Farm Life
We invite you to experience farm life. Spending time on the farm allows you to share in Vermont’s rich agricultural life, and explore and experience our local farm community. Tucked away off the beaten path, our hillside farm provides a peaceful retreat and lovely setting to unwind, relax, and connect with rural living. Immerse yourself in farming, star lit nights, country roads, covered bridges, farmer’s markets, contra dances, and amazing local food.

One bedroom has a four poster queen bed, the other bedroom has two twin-size four poster beds. We prepare a self serve continental style breakfast, allowing our farmstay guests more flexibility in their schedule.
