About this listing
The Plank House Farm is a family homestead. We raise about 2/3 of our own food on 17 acres. We have large gardens of vegetables, fruits, berries, and herbs. We raise chickens, pigs, laying hens, and cows. We hand-milk our cow Gracie, and make our own butter, yogurt, and cheese. We raise and process our own meat on the land (smoke the bacon in the backyard, make sausage in the kitchen). Our land is mostly open pasture, and our house and barn are both over 200 years old. Guest accommodations are a three-bedroom upstairs suite that can comfortably sleep up to 5 adults, and includes a full bath (but no kitchen). There is no private entrance for guests. We are located on a dirt road less than 5 miles from the town of Hardwick, 5 miles from Greensboro and Lake Caspian, and 45 minutes from both Montpelier and St. Johnsbury.
We have a four-year-old girl, a baby boy, a cat, and a very friendly dog. The price of stay is $60/night for two people, and $20 per person after that.
We have wireless internet but we ask that you keep your mobile devices and/or laptop computers in your room. We are happy if you would like to help with chores, but please ask before feeding the animals or weeding the garden.
