The NeighborhoodNew Acadia is set on 11 acres of open farmland surrounded by large fields of pastoral scenery dotted with dairy cows, horses and the changing colors of seasons. The nearest neighbor is a quarter mile away. Big skies provide daily entertainment. We have our own young Orchard. Neighborly Farms borders our land, and there are miles of walking trails through hard and softwood forests and dirt roads that offer pathways for outdoor or driving enjoyment. Skiers and snowshoe enthusiasts, mountain bikers and hikers will enjoy exploring and trail-breaking the area. Groomed ski trails and State forests offer easy access just a few miles away. Several other neighboring organic farmers produce and sell their products through the Brookfield Farmer's Market Partnership, local businesses and restaurants. Randolph is the geographic center and heart of Vermont where visitors can still enjoy light traffic, premier cultural arts events, and true serenity for a peaceful, quiet, and beautiful home-stay.

(URL HIDDEN) Getting AroundThe Cabin is located just 4 miles from I-89. The Amtrak train stops in Randolph twice/day, and transportation is available to the Cabin. A variety of backroads, both paved and unpaved surround us from all directions. Four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended in spring and winter, but the roads are well maintained and the owner drives a Prius. It is recommended to contact me regarding local road conditions on the day of travel.
