Overview

Sheffield House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms,1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8--Beautiful Mtn Views, amusing farm animals

Carriage House Sleeps 3 couples very comfortably -- most rates are for up to 5 people. Additional guests are $25/person/nt (over 10 years old). Phone us for rate quotes. Country privacy in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Beautiful, charming, peaceful -- a great get away. Let go, unwind, have fun, de-stress & relax, or knock yourself out in the great outdoors. 2-story Carriage House has Old World charm. The LARGE picture window upstairs looks out onto beautiful, changing mountain views and the antics of our animals (we do not eat our lawn mowers or weed whackers). In summer you can eat organic produce & herbs from the Guest House garden (corn in mid-late August), which is separate from our farm area. Nearby natural preserve (closed in winter) is outstanding -- swimming, fishing, hiking, exploring. Cook up a storm, grill outside, or check out nearby cafes-restaurants. Free WiFi, cable TV & Blu-ray DVD (+Netflix access). We have games, cards, jigsaw puzzles, books, stuffed toys, crayons/art supplies, Audubon Nature Guides, & a recliner. 1.25 miles away is the world-renowned Bread & Puppet Theater. Burke Mountain-Kingdom Trails and Craftsbury (the Open Center) are a 1/2 hr away for hiking, world-class mtn. biking, dining, fireworks, concerts, farmer's markets, etc. Many crystal-clear Ponds/Lakes nearby. In Spring you can hear the Spring Peepers, later watch for the Luna moths (and the other Saturnid moths we protect), then fireflies. Clear skies are great at night for star gazing (check out when the meteor showers are, too). The best part's just BEING here.

SLEPT LIKE BABIES...: Dear Stephanie & Marc.-- We had a glorious time. We loved the downstairs great room and especially loved reading and looking at [the Donkey] and the mountains from the upstairs Great Room. We all slept like babies!!!!! It was such fun watching the birds and the chipmunk darting about outside. Torben loved snowshoeing on your property. -- Thanks for providing such a wonderful larder with spices, oils, rice (which I used), teas and Green Mtn Coffee which I love. I did the cooking and they cleaned up! -- Thank you also for being the 'parents' for the rescued animals. We have friends who live in Woodstock, VT and the wife is totally committed to taking animals out of abusive homes. You are doing a great thing and your donkey must be thankful to have you care for him. We loved hearing him 'talking' to Marc! -- Thank you so much. -- April & Torben

IT WAS LIKE COMING HOME: We read the website & write-ups, made the deal, but still didn't really know what to expect. It was like coming home to the family farm for Thanksgiving. We're not often welcomed by two mules, a gaggle of Guinea hens, a goose with a wonky wing, and a pair of chipmunks. No moose though, at least not yet. Marc & Stephanie are like family. Staying here's been a treat. Raiding the vegetable garden, watching the chipmunk while reading on the deck, the view from upstairs, the 'state park' across the road (all parks should be like this), the leaves turning, but not turned. Drive the byways, but better yet -- take the well-used Vermont Gazetteer and take those really skinny back roads that are red -- the dirt/gravel ones. Get lost, find your way. Go to the observatory at the top of Prospect Hill near Brownington, and look into Canada. Try them all -- they're good roads, often better than the asphalt ones. -- Pam & Les, Tyler TX

WOW!!!: Let me start off by saying WOW!!!!! You and your farm are amazing. It was so nice to meet folks who still have strong morals/values and treat animals/land with the love and respect they deserve. We really were just trying to 'get away', but you made our trip so much more than that!! And for that I THANK YOU. We would love to sit down with you two and listen to you speak so lovingly about your farm. My husband and I have had our share of many tragedies over the last few years and found it hard to get out of our pity party; in just two short days Mount Harmony provided us with the atmosphere to 'let go';. Your gratitude towards my husband's veteran status was unexpected and appreciated, I hope we did not insult you by not taking you up on your offer to stay a night 'on you'. If we didn't have [responsibilities], we would have taken you up on the offer in a heartbeat. We'll be back, but next time for a longer stay.

-- Sonya, Gary, & Friends, Massachusetts

Why Stephanie Bourdelle chose Sheffield

Land has never had pesticides. Two dwellings -- one with a huge picture window and a view to soak up. An OLD farm/farmhouse to build on the bones of. Room enough for us to be growing/expanding gradually and with care. Not next to neighbors crowding out nature & the peacefulness, yet on a paved road (which gets PLOWED). So much here to take in through the senses if one holds still.

What makes this house unique

Organic Guest House Garden, Pure (filtered) well water (no chemicals), fresh air, plenty of ways to get exercise, or just soak up the constantly changing views from the huge picture window and de-stress. State forest with ponds around corner is near- private, and the water is pristine. Easy access to Bread & Puppet, and Burke Mtn. is nearby. The Canadian border (& Newport, VT) is a beautiful 1/2 hr ride north. It's very healthy to be here!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We read the website write-ups, made the deal, but still didn't really know what to expect. It was -- is -- like coming home to the family farm for Thanksgiving. We're not often welcomed by two mules, a gaggle of Guinea hens -- including babies -- a goose with a wonky wing, and a pair of chipmunks (sunflower seeds are provided to give them). No moose though, at least not yet. And Marc & Stephanie are like family.



Go drive the byways, but better yet -- take the well-used Vermont Gazetteer provided and take those really skinny back roads that are red -- the dirt/gravel ones. Get lost, find your way. Go to the observatory at the top of Prospect Hill near Brownington, and look into Canada. Eat at the Mtn. View Inn on Darling Hill near E. Burke. Try them all -- they're good roads, often better than the asphalt ones.



Raiding the vegetable garden, watching the friendly chipmunk while reading on the deck, the view from upstairs, the 'state park' across the road (all parks should be like this) with the leaves turning, but not turned. Staying here's been a treat.

What a great experience!

Everyone should go and visit Mark and Stephanie at least once! My wife and I stayed at the house while I enjoyed a moose hunt up north with my brother. These folks are inkeepers par-excellence.....extremely personable, genuine, customer-oriented and more than willing to do what it takes to make your stay wonderful. It felt like home as soon as we got there, and we hated to leave. They had a lot of the little things that make a home, well, home....band-aids in the bathroom and spices in the kitchen, things like that. The picture window upstairs is incredible, you can't beat the wood heat, and their critters provided hours of entertainment. We can't say enough good things about them! It was a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy quality time reading or talking, walks on the property, recharging the batteries. We also found a great maple place in nearby Glover that kept us stuffed with maple candies....Yum! We did some sightseeing around the Northeast Kingdom, and the scenery is awesome....pretty close to Crystal Lake in Barton and Lake Willoughby. Better rent your week quick.....we're going back!

Owner's Response: Kendall, Sheila et al. were great -- "easy keepers" as horse people say. Folks like this we offer extra days on us because we don't want them to go!

This Guest House, with lots of character & Old World touches, is located in the heart of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, near to the VAST Trail, is just around the corner from a natural preserve (swimming/hiking/fishing/exploring -- closed in winter), and is a mile from the Bread & Puppet Theater. Many swimming ponds/lakes, restaurants, cafes & ski areas are nearby (Craftsbury's Outdoor Center, and Burke Mtn. & Kingdom Trails are each within easy reach). Check our website for detailed listing of the many activities nearby, directions, and more photos. Free WiFi/internet, Dish HDTVs w. Blu-ray 3-D Player, pellet stove (& supplementary wood stove) downstairs, baseboard heat upstairs. Our well water is healthier than what people drink from plastic bottles. This is a great place to unwind & de-stress, kick back in nature for awhile, or knock yourself out in the great outdoors. Come back to the warmth & cook up something wonderful in the kitchen, or go out to a wide variety of great eating places. In summer the great eating place is right here -- just pick fresh organic items (& herbs) from the Guest House garden, select from the many spices we supply and voila! Parfait!
