Farm Vacations in the Loft

Nothing compares to a stay at a working farm to refresh your spirit and clear your mind.  

Enjoy the stunning views and cozy atmosphere during your vacation at the farm.

Our 1-bedroom, 1-bath loft apartment is fully furnished with everything you need for a relaxing stay – pots, pans and cooking equipment, bedding, towels, wifi and plenty of games, music, movies and books to keep guests of all ages occupied.

     Bedroom:

     1 Queen Bed

 

     Living Room:

     1 Full Pull-out Sofa Bed

    Bathroom:

    Walk in shower

Getting involved during your stay:

The best part of staying here is a chance to be part of farm life.  Each season brings its own pleasures: the snow and cold of winter with opportunities to snowshoe, hike, and explore; blooming lilacs and forsythia in spring and the birth of almost 30 baby lambs and kids (baby goats); fresh tomatoes, lettuce, beans and squash in summer; and magnificent forests of red and golden trees in autumn.

 

We welcome you to join us as we do our daily chores, give grain and hay to animals, milk goats, clean the barn, plant and pick freely in the garden and vegetable hoop house, gather eggs from the chickens for breakfast and cut and stack wood.  Stroll the 80-acre property and learn about our wind turbine, solar panels and solar hot water system.

You can purchase any of our farm products and cook a farm to table dinner in the farm guesthouse.   

Many additional add-on learning opportunities are available to schedule at your convenience for an additional fee; cheese making, wool spinning or dyeing classes, horse carriage driving classes and more. 

Let us know your interests and we will help create a perfect Farm Vacation itinerary for you.

Pricing:

A two night weekend rental for two people is $315.00, and includes a 5% county tax and a $2.00 contribution to the Green Lodging Partnership Program which protects our region's lands, waters and abundant outdoor recreational opportunities.
