SPECTACULAR CONVERTED 1840 BARN ON SECLUDED 100+ ACRE HILL FARM

South Strafford Barn Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Enjoy a peaceful rural retreat in a spectacular converted 1840 barn on Old Moses Farm, a secluded 100+ acre hill farm dedicated to the improvement and preservation of wildlife habitat and ecosystems, and located in historic Strafford, Vermont. Enjoy beautiful unspoilt views from every window. It is charmingly decorated and fully furnished on three floors and with many amenities to make your stay a comfortable and pleasurable experience. Surrounded by fields and meadows, woodlands with 300 year old maples, there are miles of trails on the farm and in adjacent Downer State Forest for walking, hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, and snow shoeing. There is a stocked trout pond, and the farm is within walking distance to the town swimming pond. Centrally located to Vermont’s many scenic and sporting attractions. Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, is a 20 minute drive; Vermont Law School, 15 minutes; Woodstock, VT, 25 minutes; Killington, 40 minutes; and Montpelier, 45 minutes.

Golf on one of Vermont’s golf course gems within a 45 minute drive of the farm, including Woodstock, Lake Morey Resort, Killington, Montague and Green Mountain National.

Visit Vermont’s many open farms, farmers markets, cheese and chocolate makers, microbrewers, and arts and crafts studios. Attend the Tunbridge World's Fair in September, which is our all-time favorite. The South Strafford General Store has everything you need including the NY Times, Boston Globe, ATM and post office.

For those interested in three-day eventing, dressage, and other equine sports, Tamarack Hill and Huntington Farm are located in Strafford, and the Green Mountain Horse Association is a 45 minute drive away in South Woodstock.

Winter guests: snow worthy vehicle a requirement.

The Moses Farm experience is sublime.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 19, 2013

I spent May 2013 at the Old Moses Farm, a lovely place chockfull of delights and a tonic for the spirit.

The farm abounds in pleasures for every sense - boundless vistas, beautiful grounds with flowers and flowering trees, exotic fragrances and the sounds of nature.

I did some hiking on the miles of paths on the grounds. Some are rigorous, others less taxing. There is a beautiful secluded pond close to the dwelling. The horses are spectacular and there is a very cool dog, Trot.

My home for the month was the converted barn which has great charm with original beams and details. It was furnished and decorated with care. It is comfortable with a feel of countrified sophistication. The many windows on all sides provide great air, exquisite light and views beyond compare.
I didn't do many side trips because I loved the property so much. South Strafford is welcoming and comes with a rich history, like so much of Vermont.

Another thing great about the farm is that nature seems speeded up. Each day brings noticeable change in the surroundings. There are new blooms springing up overnight. Experiencing the weather is dramatic and thrilling given the openness of the living space and a wide open sky that just doesn't quit.

My hosts could not have been more accommodating and generous with their attention while providing the privacy and space I was looking for.

All told this was a vacation that will stay with me until I book my next stay. My visit brought me a sense of personal renewal. It was both exhilarating and relaxing.

A++++

PS - A perfect choice for the romantically inclined.

Solitude in the Green Mountains

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 5, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
My wife and I found beautiful solitude in this rental. If you so desire, you could spend your entire stay with rarely hearing the sound of a motorized vehicle. On the other hand, the rental is within a half hour from Quechee Village, White River Junction, Hanover and West Lebanon, New Hampshire, there are numerous attractions nearby.

As far as the amenities of the rental, we greatly appreciated the very comfortable bed and the surplus of towels. The living space is tastefully decored. Who would ever guess that a barn could be so comfortable?

A beautiful, well-maintained, cozy place to stay.

To convert a barn into a beautiful and cozy guesthouse is quite a challenge and requires phantasy and good taste. The owner of Old Moses Farm has done a great job. This is one of the reasons why my husband and I have now returned for a second time to spend our vacation in this lovely home in Vermont, which is surrounded by pastures and forests and has a view to the nearby mountains.
Entering the barn you will find a well equipped kitchen that leads you at its endside upstairs to the light-filled and nicely furnitured living room. Another staircase brings you directly to the sleeping loft. The warm atmosphere of the barn, the beauty of the setting, and the hospitality of Kip and Martin make this a wonderful place to spend a vacation. It is a place for quiet relaxation and communion with nature. We left feeling regenerated and eager to return

Longing for our next visit to Old Moses Farm

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 11, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2010
We spent two weeks at Old Moses Farm last year and immediately reserved two for this year. We are still floating on the memories of both visits! Old Moses Farm's location is perfect for wandering country roads in both Vermont and New Hampshire. We discovered many villages with lovely, historic buildings and one-of-a-kind stops for delicious food. The scenery on these drives is fuel for our reminiscences, the kinds of sights thought of as photographs on calendars, but there for the enjoyment around every curve. As for the farm itself, we loved its location on a small mountain, with no buildings or roads in sight, but handy to a general store that covered our needs. It was a perfect respite from our busy lives. When we weren't out exploring, we filled whole days with reading, talking and writing in journals as we enjoyed the farm's expansive and beautiful views. We love how open and simple the barn is, so filled with light that even a rainy day feels friendly. Kip and Martin are perfect hosts who have made a special place for visitors to feel entirely at home. We'll be back!

Peaceful rural retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 6, 2008
  • Stayed: Oct 2008
We’ve stayed in a number of vacation rentals – among them a casita in Santa Fe, an apartment in Paris, a condo in Key West, a studio in New York City – and I believe that the converted barn at Old Moses Farm is the nicest of them all. It’s spacious, it’s quiet, it’s well-appointed, and Kip Lindsay is a gracious and accommodating host. You have all the comforts of home and more, including small amenities such as a picnic basket, candles on the dining table, a multitude of towels and a nice big work table for your maps and guide books and laptop.

The rural setting is secluded (with incredible views), yet centrally located and convenient to most of Vermont and New Hampshire. The local general store has just about everything you could want, including the Sunday New York Times, and Kip’s advice about what to see and what to avoid is very helpful. If you’re looking for vacation lodging that’s within walking distance of gift boutiques, tour buses and fudge shops, then Old Moses Farm isn’t for you. But we were looking for a peaceful slice of Vermont off the beaten path, and we found it here. We’d come back in a heartbeat.
