The Space

Sunny first floor of a true Federal Style Vermont Farm House dating from 1797! includes: seven rooms (1000 sf): south and west facing bedroom, adjoining large bathroom, updated kitchen, south facing dining room, and separate living room. Listen to the soothing sound of the brook out your bedroom window or cozy up to the Vermont Castings Stove. Walk, ski, run, or mountain bike on our private trails that traverse open pasture and forest. Venture further on miles of trails that lead to the huge V.A.S.T system designed for snowmobilers but allow in our case access to skiers, walkers, mountain bikers, geocachers, trail runners, and horseback riders.
For you long distance runners looking to get in your miles. The Town of Westford is blessed with miles and miles and miles of dirt roads perfect for your knees and your training runs.
Finally since the Farm House sits at the "end of the road" in a beautifully secluded location next to hundreds of acres of undeveloped forest you should be able to see the stars like never before!
And yet for all this quiet and solitude you are only 7.8 miles from the grocery store, adventure park with zip lines, pharmacy, cinema, shops, even a 7 million dollar spa and indoor pool for your day use if you feel so inclined. Downhill skiing is not far: 25 minutes to Smuggler's Notch puts you on the lift there, Stowe Mountain Resort, Trapp Family Lodge, Bolton Valley, and Jay Peak are all easy day trips.
In the other direction discover amazing Lake Champlain, the sixth Great Lake in the U.S. with a myriad of recreational opportunities.
As a rock and ice climber I can point you in the right direction for those local activities as well.
For those who are looking for night life, Burlington (email hidden) town with lots of offerings. With one queen sized bed in the Master Bedroom, one queen sized futon and one queen sized leather sleep sofa the Farm House can accomodate 3 couples quite comfortably.

  • The farm house was everything I was hoping for, quiet, inviting, comfortable and totally relaxing. Frank was a very accommodating, and attentive host allowing me the privacy to thoroughly unwind, but making sure that everything was meeting expectations. Great place, great host. Highly recommend and look forward to going back for a longer stay.

  • Frank's farmhouse is a charming retreat. It (email hidden) to get away somewhere quiet, the weather didn't cooperate during our stay but we still managed to get some of the best of the area. If you have a dog, this is an amazing stay. Our dog Scout woke us up in the morning just so she could go run around the yard and go on long walks down dirt roads.
    Frank himself is an extraordinary host. Immediately he makes you feel welcome and lets it be known that he is there to help. We truly enjoyed meeting him.

  • Frank is personable. The property is lovely. The house seems to be too much for him to manage.

  • Frank gave us a really warm welcome to his charming farm house, set in beautiful surroundings and ideal for capturing the Vermont atmosphere. He suggested some great ideas for local sights too. We both loved the woodburning stove and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Frank and this property.

  • (email hidden)! I've booked this old farmstead with full of charm really last minute early in the morning, and I got a quick answer from Frank. Frank is a really nice guy. He was there to make sure that we had a great weekend in the area and talking with him was a real pleasure. He cooked a good bread for us at the house and we had everything in the fridge for having a nice stay. Again, like I said, the house was just perfect. It is located at the end of the road, in the middle of nature. It have a super great sound system for listening to your music in front of the fireplace! It is just like a dream. The house is big enough for 3 couples!

    Again, thank you Frank for everything! We will come back for sure!

  • We had a great stay! The house has lots of character, the beds are comfortable and the surrounding area is beautiful. Spent our days skiing at Stowe and smugglers notch and went to dinner in Burlington night. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

  • Had a wonderful time reading by the wood-fire stove, cooking in the fully-stocked kitchen and exploring all over the massive property. Frank was incredibly accommodating and had taken care of everything we could have asked for, which made for an extra comfortable stay. The farmhouse was greatly hidden amongst farms, which made for very peaceful nights, but was still close enough to Burlington that we could go out for dinner and drinks no problem. Very much hoping to visit again in the summer when everything is green!

  • My husband and I stayed here with another couple and really enjoyed ourselves. The house is spacious with ample room between bedrooms and yet still is very cozy. Frank is a very attentive, accommodating and helpful host.

    All in all, I highly recommend, especially if you are sharing with friends!

  • The farmhouse was wonderful and Frank (email hidden). We were greeted with fresh bread and local beer and a warm fire.

    We were 3 separate bedrooms and everyone had lots of comfortable space and privacy. The kitchen was fully appointed and the surround sound was a nice touch.

    Didn't get to explore the property since we spent the days skiing but I hope to return in the summer. Very much recommend this location!

    February 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay at the farmhouse. Frank was very gracious, offering us freshly baked bread when we arrived, and was willing to help us out with restaurant and entertainment recommendations. It was a great get away from the city!
