The SpaceOther than being the most beautiful place in the whole world, our property has just about everything you need for a killer getaway. On the farm, we grow flowers and vegetables, raise pigs, chickens, and work with a team of Belgian draft horses.
In the morning we always provide coffee (roasted by Carrier Roasting in Randolph) and toast, from bread that we make weekly with wheat grown by Roger's Farmstead, up in Berlin, VT.
There are miles of hiking / running / skiing / snowshoeing trails in our 250 acres of woods and a spring-fed swimming pond for dipping, lounging, floating and/or chicken fights.
We are 10 minutes from Bethel, Randolph and Rochester for adorable small town VT vibes, and 45 minutes from Montpelier, Hanover / WRJ, Woodstock, Middlebury and Killington, for those with grander cultural or commercial ambitions. Guest AccessYou get the whole shebang. You're welcome to use all the communal spaces as your own - kitchen, living room, library, porch, pond and woods. As the season allows, you're welcome to walk the farm, check out the crops and say hello to the animals, so long as you are aware that the sights and smells are that of a working farm, and the electric fence is on. Interaction with GuestsWe're around the home and farm just about always, and will be glad to help you with any needs that arise. The NeighborhoodWe're in the glorious Piedmont hills of Vermont (foothills of the Green Mountains). These hills are riddled with hiking, swimming spots, small farms, craftspeople, and all manner of natural beauty.
Excellent access to I-89 and only a jaunt to Norwich/Hanover, Woodstock, Montpelier, White River, Middlebury and Burlington. Getting AroundWe have very poor cell reception here and close to the farm, it's a good idea to load up your GPS directions well in advance, if you are using a mobile device. Other Things to NoteIf we are booked here, check out our other listing, 'Stitchdown Farm Walnut Room'
As we have two other rooms available, depending on the time of year and alignment of the stars, there may be other guests staying with us at the same time. All three rooms share the same adjacent bathroom.
The wireless connection in our old farmhouse tends to be willful. As such, it rarely works in this room. There seems to be an impenetrable mystery wall 6 steps outside the door. There is wireless access in most of the house, of which you are welcome to use as much as you'd like.
