outdoor spaces

The Barnyard

We are happy to schedule a private goat "hang out" session for you and your family/friends. This is a casual, intimate, and truly unique and unforgettable experience. Goats are affectionate, funny, and splendid to look at.

The Fields

We have 130 acres, including many fields of wildflowers and grazing animals. The variety of birds, bees, and wildlife i

Alpine Skiing

Stratton is our family's go-to mountain come winter, but we are also between 30-40 minutes from a number of other alpine ski destinations, including Mt. Snow, Bromley, Magic Mountain, and Okemo.

Nordic Skiing

One can enjoy trailblazing trails on farm with backcountry skis, but there are also excellent nordic centers offering groomed trails nearby, including Grafton Ponds, Wild Wings, Brattleboro Outing Club, and Stratton Nordic Center.

Ice Skating

When the conditions are right, our beaver pond becomes the most incredible ice skating experience in all of New England. When its not perfect at the farm, the Retreat Farm in Brattleboro is a popular skating destination once the river freezes over.


We have several sets of adult and child-sized snowshoes for those of you who wish to explore the wintry terrain right here on the farm without having to drive to an outdoor center.

"Thank you Lucas and Louisa for another wonderful stay! Amazing to experience the cabin during different seasons! Can't wait to come back."
