Stand-alone cabin on our beautiful blueberry farm with magnificent views of the Green Mountains. Isolated rural setting yet minutes away from the charming village of Johnson, Vt, located between the ski meccas of Stowe and Smugglers' Notch. If travelling mid July to mid August, enjoy u-pick blueberries fresh off the bush!

The space
Quiet, clean, cozy, the perfect farmstay getaway. The cabin was originally part of our off-the-grid homestead and farm. We have since modernized, and are connected to the grid. We welcome guests to tread lightly on the land and experience an eco-friendly travel alternative. The cabin features a double bed and a set of twin bunkbeds, and bathroom with a shower. The cabin has a cheerful decor, abundant natural daylight and south-facing views of beautiful Mount Sterling. A Rinnai heater and down comforter will keep you cozy on the coldest of Northern Vermont nights, while summertime air is pure and fresh.

Guest access
We encourage guests to venture out into the varied, hilly topography of the farm, and there are plenty of magical places to explore. Our hill farm is 40 acres of blueberry fields, sheep pasture and mixed hardwoods, abutting hundreds of acres of neighboring fields and forest. This ecology presents ample opportunities for backwoods recreation including hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and river swimming. In the summer enjoy a dip in one of our ponds. Blueberry picking season is mid-July to late August, and we offer tours year-round to our guests to some of our other farm attractions, such as our solar, earth-bermed greenhouse and woodland mushroom yard.

Other things to note
We aim to make the cabin as family-friendly as possible.

While we don't provide meals, the cabin is minutes away from main street Johnson with cafes and restaurants. Foote Brook Farm store is right across the street, with its awesome selection (open summer and fall) of locally produced farm products and organic produce, while Johnson's Sterling Market with its wide selection of typical staples and great local/regional food is also minutes away.

We have a picnic cooler that stays in the cabin if you would like to store food and drinks.

Our homestead is unique because although we are minutes from Main street Johnson, we are off the beaten track, nestled uphill past several farm fields and tracks of woods. Our driveway, turning and climbing almost 1/2 mile, takes on the character of our Northern Vermont seasons. During winter we keep the driveway plowed but 4wd is recommended. During March-April, "mud season" when the snow melts, things tend to be wet and a bit mucky. Summertime mid July-September we have our u-pick blueberry operation open to the public several days of the week. Fall is nice, quiet and absolutely beautiful. We will always try our best to be available to help you make your way up to the homestead. If you are arriving for the first time at night we will try to meet you at the bottom of the driveway. There is always parking near the start of the driveway if you are ever unsure of the weather or conditions.

We are a family with small (but fast growing!) kids. We started building out our blueberry farm in 2008. It now has about 4000 blueberry bushes, 4 acres of apple trees (still a bit too young to bear fruit) raspberries and strawberries. Ben has a background in the construction trades and built all structures on the farm, including an earth-bermed greenhouse, strawbale house and ten-sided round barn, which has housed several rounds of pigs, sheep and ducks. Stacey and Ben both work part-time off the farm; Stacey works for the Lamoille Conservation District as an environment educator for youth, while Ben works for the University of Vermont agricultural Extension. We love travelling and the outdoors. We love hosting visitors and encourage everyone to come for a taste of what Northern Vermont has to offer.
