Your Stay at the farmhouse
Guests have the option of renting our tastefully renovated 1860s farmhouse for either three or seven nights as part of their special celebration. Our wish is for you and your extended family to arrive on Thursday and depart on Sunday for a true weekend wedding celebration with an outdoor Friday welcome dinner with lawn games and a Sunday goodbye brunch hosted at the farm. The farmhouse comfortably sleeps up to a 16 guests and provides the wedding party and family members a backdrop for an intimate bonding experience that always becomes a cherished part of events at our venue. Originally a working dairy farm and stagecoach stop on the road to Stamford. Built in the 1860’s by the Smith family from Scotland much of the original detail remains. Story has it that the Smith’s brought their working dogs with them. This historic property has been carefully renovated to retain much of the original detail in the farmhouse like the handblown glass windows, wide plank pine flooring, double front door. The claw foot tub has made its way out to the bar in the barn for chilling beverages. Bluestone walls have been carefully rebuilt. Historic heirloom irises and peony’s abound in the perennial gardens surrounding the farmhouse and barn in June. Hydrangeas and dahlias take over in August. At 2,000 ft elevation the area is virtually bug free and summertime evenings are pleasantly cool.
