Guests are free to roam then entire grounds, with the exception of the fenced-in fields for the sheep. We will gladly give them a "guided tour" of the flock. Also the neighborhood is very open to hikers, skiers, snowshoers.
Interaction with Guests
As much as the guests desire. Many guests are interested in our farm/flock, and we try to introduce them to the sheep, as appropriate.
The Jericho area is remote and quiet yet very close to a lot of wonderful attractions. The views are unbelievable, the sunsets (and sunrises) spectacular.
Other Things to Note
The rates include Vermont Rooms Tax of 9%.
The apartment has a separate entrance and is above the garage. We ask people to respect our privacy and keep quiet hours between 10 pm and 7 am. Guests are more than welcome to wander the grounds - the views are spectacular. We have wonderful Adirondack chairs for lounging that guests can certainly use.
Pets are allowed, but guests need to know that we have sheep grazing in fields that are surrounded by electric fencing that is on all the time.
Todd & Peggy were extremely welcoming hosts and have an amazing property. We rented the apartment in the one bedroom format and it provided exactly what we needed for a weekend stay. The apartment was fit with nice furnishings, plenty of space, and beautiful views. Great location in terms of driving to some local towns like Norwich, White River Junction, and Quechee.
We had a great start to the 2015 by staying with Peggy and Todd; a well appointed apartment, in a beautiful part of Vermont. We look forward to a return visit when the weather is a little warmer:)
Also, it is really nice that they take dogs - our Springer had a great time and nicely wore himself out playing outside.

I had a fabulous stay at Todd and Peggy's farm. Everything is exactly as pictured, and appears even more beautiful in-person. This was by far one of my best AirBnB experience. I could not recommend this location, or these hosts, any more highly. Do yourself a favor and book the apartment right now! :)
We absolutely loved Todd and Peggy's farm. Amazing apartment, amazing view of the sky! The kitchen is fully equipped, and we cooked both nights. We had originally planned to go out for dinner...we just loved staying inside, watching movies, and cooking together. There are two great co-ops and we went and purchased fresh milk, vegetables, and meat to cook with. Our dogs loved the expansive land, and ability to run off leash (while being supervised). One quick thing to note: you can avoid airbnb's service fee by making your booking through VBRO. In fact, we are their first guest through airbnb for this very reason. All of their other guests have booked through VBRO.
About the Host, Todd & Peggy
Savage Hart Farm is a small, but growing, sheep farm with guest accommodations. Situated near the top of Savage Hill on the eastern edge of the Jericho Rural Historic District of Hartford, Vermont, the farm boasts spectacular 270 degree views.
Savage Hart Farm’s owner/operators – Peggy and Todd Allen – share a vision to turn a beautiful post and beam 4-bedroom home on 32 acres into a working farm with a vacation rental apartment. We moved onto the farm in July of 2012, and only a month later we were joined by our “starter” flock consisting mostly of colored Corriedale sheep. By October, we had built a small barn and installed about 4000 feet of permanent fencing to get us through our first winter. With 25 acres of grass, the sheep have plenty of room to grow.
