The farm has 18 acres of meadows, rolling hills and ridges, trails through hemlock and laurel forests, a spring fed pond, organic vegetable/ flower gardens and chickens. Once a homestead, our circa 1930’s farm is home to Retreats, Artist Residencies and Glamping. The original barn was converted into an extraordinary Studio, there is The Cottage, several luxury sleeping tents and The Mill House an eclectic dwelling created from re~purposed wood for yet another unique experience! ~~~


The farmhouse is the residence of Rick and Jo Ann,  it was built in the 30’s and has all the charm and warmth one might expect! The house has a full wrap around porch on the first floor as well as an upstairs balcony porch. Each room in the house has french doors that lead out to the porch creating a connection with mother nature wherever you are. The main floor has a cozy parlor with a fireplace for those cooler evenings where often guest are treated to a welcoming home-brew. Downstairs is an open floor plan where culinary classes take place.


We are a unique property where our guests can opt to stay in one of our Luxury Sleeping Tents from India…we call it Glamping! (The season for Glamping is April 15th – December 1st)  All tents may be configured as either twins beds  or as a king bed. Glamping~is often referred to as  ‘glamorous camping, where luxury in the wild means fine linens and french presses!’ Don’t let the word “tent” fool you, as each tent is beautiful inside with all the comforts of home while being environmentally friendly. They each have their own 6 x 12 private bath with on demand hot showers and composting toilets. The entrance has a large 6 x 12 covered front porch with tables and chairs overlooking the woods or meadow. The bedrooms are 12 x 12 (double occupancy) with a small sitting area. The beds have luxurious bedding. Hot water may be heated for coffee or tea. All tents are heated and will keep you toasty warm on those cooler fall nights, and we have fans for those warm summer nights to keep you comfortable.



The Studio is just a short walk down from the main house. It was originally JoAnn’s art studio where she painted, designed one of a kind art pieces and was a potter you can see the artistic touches throughout. The windows are covered in beautiful shades with Ricks photography dressing them up! The walls are colorful and there are windows everyone which feels as if you are always outside. French doors lead to the meadow and your own private fire pit and outdoor bathroom complete with shower and claw foot tub. The inside bathroom has a glass shower and there is a small kitchenette and an extra room for a guest to stay with you!



The Cottage was originally Rick’s Photography Studio and now is a lovely guest house just a few quick steps from the main house. The space has an open floor plan, the ceilings are high and there is a back porch overlooking the entire property ~perfect place for coffee while watching the sun rise or a glass of wine and watch the stars fill the skies. There are twin beds that can be converted to a king,  a small kitchenette with sitting room and full bath.
