Der Wohnraum

Come spend time in southwestern Vermont! We live on a beautiful dairy farm and we love to welcome guests to our home. We have a newly carpeted, finished studio apartment above our attached 3 car garage waiting just for you! It is furnished with a comfy new queen sized bed and 2 new twin sized beds.

A recently installed kitchenette, with a two burner cook top and small fridge, and mini spice pantry enables you to prepare simple meals. Choose to dine inside at the vintage table or make it al fresco and take your meal out to the patio when the weather permits. We are happy to stock your fridge with a complimentary jar of our own fresh, raw milk, upon request and we'll also provide fresh eggs when the hens are laying!

A full bath with stall shower is spacious, well appointed, and clean. Wireless internet is available but we suggest you relax with some good old board games. Little ones will have fun swinging and sliding on the newly installed wooden play set in the yard. We are definitely kid friendly! Guests have a private entrance but are welcome to enjoy our lovely backyard patio and porch.

If you have ever wanted to experience life on a dairy farm, this is the place for you! Guests can watch the milking chores in the morning or sleep in and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Either way, you are sure to be charmed by your surroundings. We milk 25 registered Jersey cows twice a day, every day, and sell their rich creamy milk raw here on the farm. The bulk of it goes next door to Consider Bardwell Farm where it is made into their award winning aged raw milk cheese. We have a little farm store on sight from which you can also view our morning or evening milkings. Our fresh, raw milk, grass fed beef and free range chicken, local maple syrup, and Laurie's own hand printed note cards are for sale in this self serve store.

The surrounding area holds plenty of opportunity for adventure. The D&H Rail Trail runs literally through our backyard and is a perfect venue for birders and hikers alike. It is 22.3 miles long and is very popular among bicyclists, cross country skiers, horseback riders, walkers and joggers. Bring your binoculars, because we've spotted everything from bald eagles to scarlet tanagers on the trail, not to mention snapping turtles! Nature lovers can also partake of nearby Merck Forest, Haystack Mountain, and the Hebron Nature Preserve.

Manchester, a mere 25 minutes away, is a very popular destination, home to numerous designer outlets, the Orvis fly fishing school and store, and the best book store in Vermont, the Northshire Bookstore. Weston, sight of the Vermont Country Store, is about an hour's drive away through some gorgeous mountain scenery. Glens Falls, and Lake George, NY are about 45 minutes and an hour away, respectively, to the west, while Saratoga Springs is just under an hour. The delightful Lake St. Catherine state park in Wells is about 15 minutes away and Emerald Lake state park in Dorset is nearby as well. World class fly fishing abounds in the Battenkill River and the Mettowee River. Burlington and all its enchantments is just under 2 hours north and the drive through Addison County, with the Adirondacks to the west across Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains to the east is absolutely breathtaking! If you are into great beer, we highly recommend Fiddlehead brewery when you visit, especially their Hodad stout! There are great farmers markets in nearby towns as well as unique shops, eating establishments and brew pubs throughout this beautiful state.

There are too many attractions to do justice to here and we are centrally located to many nearby cities from Albany, to Saratoga, to Rutland and Bennington. Since it's only an hour away, we are frequent visitors to Williamstown, MA and its treasure, The Clark Art Institute and Mass MoCa is just a short hop away in Adams.

Winter time provides numerous opportunities for top notch skiing with Bromley only 40 minutes away and Killington about an hour, to name a few. But the cross country skiing out back on the rail trail is what we are most enthusiastic about!

No place is perfect, however, and we feel we must mention that our location here in Vermont's Slate Valley is home to unique geological features such as abundant slate formations. Because of this, as is common to many homeowners here, our well water does contain sulphur and while it has been adequately tested and is safe to drink, there can be an aroma that some people notice while others do not. We provide a large bottled water dispenser and have also installed a filtration system under the kitchen sink so its cold water is perfect for drinking with no sulphuric taste or smell at all. However, the water from the shower can, at times, still have a bit of a hard boiled egg aroma. If you are extremely sensitive to smells this might be something to consider. Most guests have no issue with the water but occasionally someone mentions it.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hosting you.

We do not discriminate and happily welcome all genders, ethnicities, colors, shapes, sizes, etc!

Zugang für Gäste

In warm weather guests can enjoy a large back porch and pergola with comfy outdoor furniture to enjoy the relaxing view, patio table/chairs front yard, lounge chairs. In cold weather guests usually opt to stay in and enjoy the warmth of the cozy apartment which is equipped with a record player and an array of vintage albums. Lots of board games, books and , of course, wi-fi. The D&H rail trail runs through our property, just behind the house and is wonderful year round for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc. There is easy access to the 22 mile trail and folks are welcome to bring their bikes and park them in our garage during their stay.

Since this IS a working farm and the way in which we earn our living, we ask guests to understand that only certain areas of the farm, fields, and barn are accessible to them. We always include descriptions of where guests are able to roam upon their welcome and are happy to answer any questions they may have during their stay.

This place is AWESOME! Super relaxing, Laurie and Dan are fantastic hosts. Their milk is the best milk I have ever had in my life! I truly loved this place. My husband and I just chilled out, soaked in the beauty of the dairy farm, played some old records, went head to head on Who Sank my Battleship, and slept like little babies. I'm going to have to come back one day for sure.
