Thank you so much for everything! Our evening
Each bedchamber is a private retreat, lovingly decorated with family heirlooms and collected antiques to reflect the genteel lifestyle of the mid-1800's. The charm of the past is carefully coupled with the comforts of the present.
All of the 5 bedchambers in the main house are named for former owners and residents throughout its history as a working farm from the 1830's to the 1970's. Our private cottages, The Milkhouse and The Nest, derive their names from their original functions of cooling and storing fresh milk, and providing a place for the hens to nest and stay warm.

The Israel Munson Room ($189-$215, see rate schedule below) — Step up into the king-sized bed with fringed canopy and curl up with a book or your loved one. The antique wardrobe, marble-top dresser, fainting couch, wide plank floors, and wainscoted bath lend an air of Victorian charm to this spacious room, named for the man who had the elegant farmhouse built for his bride in 1845. It is a second floor room with a grand view of the Green Mountains on one side and the spacious meadows on the other. It features a recently refurbished full private bath with single person whirlpool tub and shower. The corner fireplace adds to the ambiance, and assures that you will stay warm and cozy however cold it may get outside.
The Matilda Clark Munson Room ($179-$205, see rate schedule below) — This lovely room, named for the original mistress of the house, has a king sized sleigh bed and an oval Jacuzzi style whirlpool tub in the room. A second floor room with four windows, it has a grand view of the mountains in the White Rocks Recreation Area, and also looks across the meadow to the neighboring farm. The Vermont Castings fireplace stove is reminiscent of the way the house was heated in 1845. The bath with shower features locally quarried marble tile and wainscoting.
The Gilbert Douglas Room ($129-$149, see rate schedule below) — The full size sleigh bed with a queen mattress, antique and reproduction furnishings, wide plank hardwood floor, and cameo period wallpaper and sheer drapery make this room seem like a page from the past. The 4-foot clawfoot tub combined with the extra large polished chrome rainforest showerhead is a rare find. About a foot shorter than most tubs of this type yet big enough to sit in, it is decorated with a row of tulips stenciled around the outside. Wainscoting, pedestal sink, and crème plank floors give the bath a real fresh feel. The Gilbert Douglas Room is a petite delight.
The Arthur Davison Room ($139-$169, see rate schedule below) — Named for Arthur Davison, who owned and operated the farm for 40 years in the 20th century, this cozy second floor room features a romantic queen sized canopy bed, antique furnishings, wide plank floors, large braided rug, and deep blue and rose floral wallpaper. This room is a favorite with the ladies, who love the soft colors and little details like the antique child's nightgown and child's Victorian high buttoned shoe. It has a private shower bath with locally quarried marble tile floors. The corner fireplace adds to the ambiance, and assures that you will stay warm and cozy however cold it may get outside.
The Kirk Munson Room ($139-$169, see rate schedule below) — This first floor room (named for Kirk Munson who was born here and lived all of his 86 years in the house) has been recently refurbished and features a queen canopy bed with hand knotted canopy, new wallpaper in a blue and cream toile print, and full private bath with tub and shower. It is the only guestroom on the first floor and is convenient to the dining room, parlor, library, and side porch. The corner fireplace adds to the ambiance, and assures that you will stay warm and cozy however cold it may get outside.
Set back away from the house, the two secluded cottages, The Milkhouse and The Nest, are our most private accommodations and have become a favorite with honeymooners and other romantic couples, so we affectionately refer to them as the "milk & honey" cottage and the "love nest." Either of them can be rented by the week as a housekeeping cottage or by the day as a B and B guest room including breakfast. Both cottages were originally post and beam outbuildings built or renovated in 1888 to match the great multi-unit barn which was enlarged that same year. The more recent renovation of these farm buildings into cozy cottages has preserved the slate roofs, hand hewn beams, original trim, and wide plank floors while adding amenities such as whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, kitchens, and king beds. Both are perfect for families as well as for romantic getaways.
The Milkhouse Cottage ($269-$295 B&B, $1295-$1475 weekly, see rate schedule below) — Your own 700 square foot private retreat, including kitchen, dining area, living room with queen sleeper sofa, fireplace, satellite TV, DVD player, phone, private deck, large bath with whirlpool tub, and king bed in the loft bedroom.
The Nest Cottage ($285-$315 B&B, $1425-$1575 weekly, see rate schedule below) — A cozy 800 square foot private cottage with farmhouse kitchen, Rumford style fireplace, sitting area, king canopy bed, satellite TV, DVD player, phone, clawfoot slipper spa tub, separate bath with shower, loft with twin beds, and private deck.
