Located on a south-facing mountainside in Marlboro, VT, Shakespeare's Folly Side Farm provides a light, airy ground-floor apartment with stunning views from every room. We have a small farm with friendly goats, sheep, chickens and dogs, a vegetable and flower garden and a small apple, peach and pear orchard, in addition to raspberry and blueberry bushes.
A magical place of quiet and peaceful relaxation yet so close to the many rich cultural and recreational options in southeast Vermont.

The space
The apartment has big, south-facing windows with stunning views. The beautiful rustic wood panel walls were cut from this land. The apartment colors are subdued, peaceful, light and airy. Every room is comfortable but clean and attractive.

The apartment has a wide-screen TV with Roku. You're welcome to use our Netflix account. There is a DVD player and a selection of family-friendly DVDs. WiFi on site for phone and internet access.

I am married to Tina Shakespeare and we are retired, Tina from teaching and me from a career in public health. We have a small farm, garden and orchard which we call Folly Side Farm, named after Folly Cove, MA where my grandmother ran the wonderful Folly Cove Inn back in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Tina paints and makes quilts and I sing in the Brattleboro Concert Chorus, play the drums, and enjoy cooking food from the land that we nurture. During the winter I teach skiing. I have been a Level 2 PSIA ski instructor at Mount Snow but I now teach privately. Though not a direct descendent of the Bard (there are no male descendent), my documented family ancestry goes back to the late 1600s in the area of Coventry in Warwickshire, England.
