Come and stay in a 200 year old farmhouse on a small working sheep farm. The antique filled home is a perfect resting place as you explore Vermont! Enjoy the house and grounds, Hike up Snake Mountain, or the many exciting things in Middlebury!
This lovingly restored farmhouse (built in 1804) will give you the opportunity to sense the past while exploring Vermont's vibrant present. Filled with antiques and period details, we have all of the modern conveniences as well! Visit the sheep and chickens, walk the fields, or take a hike up Snake Mountain (listed as one of the great short hikes in the state) to enjoy views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.
Private bedrooms, furnished with early New England furniture, a bath shared by two guest rooms, a beautifully appointed living room and dining room, and limited access to the kitchen.
Although you will be left in peace to enjoy your privacy, we have many suggestions of things to do and see while you are in the area.
You will be treated to a farmhouse breakfast in the dining room (with fireplace roaring on chilly mornings!) featuring our own eggs and maple syrup. With advance notice we can provide box lunches for hikers, or plan and host a dinner for parties up to eight. A great way to have an intimate dinner if you are visiting your Middlebury student!
There is no smoking in the house, however,we will happily provide smokers a place outside to smoke.
I came to Vermont more than a dozen years ago, when I fell in love with this early farmhouse, the mountain location, and the fields below. As I tried to decide how to answer the inevitable “What do you want to be when you grow up?” question (the answer still eludes me), I apprenticed at one of the restaurants associated with Philadelphia’s famed “restaurant renaissance” while attending graduate school for cultural anthropology. Besides the B & B (and ongoing restoration projects) I teach Latin American Studies at SUNY in Plattsburgh, and raise polled Dorset sheep.
