Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Stacy and team,



Its hard to believe that its all over. Bill and I cannot express to you how perfect your home was for our event. You were so helpful and responsive throughout the entire process which eased my mind every step the way. Mark and Debbie were so wonderful and took care of all our needs. All your recommendations, Worthy Catering, The Little Flower Shop, Bentley's, etc. made the event magical and exactly what we had dreamed of. If other guests of yours choose to get married in the barn these are the people to call. The food was by far the best I have ever had at a wedding...and at a lot of restaurants for that matter. Its amazing what they accomplished in that kitchen. Randy and Edward transformed the barn into a winter wonderland. They are a hidden gem in Woodstock (maybe not so hidden to you but I would have never imagined their level of expertise). I will be sending along some pictures soon.

Many of our guests were in awe of your antiques, art, and overall design. I have already passed along your contact information to a family friend who hopes to rent from you as well. We hope that this is not the last time we work with you as Reading Farms will always hold a very special place in our hearts.



Thank you and your team for everything you have done for us.



Happy New Year.



Taiyo & Bill :)

OUR STAY AT READING FARMS WAS COMPLETE BLISS!

  • 5 of 5
The grand entry gate and the long drive way leading up to the home really builds up your anticipation to see the home and property and we were not dissapointed at all! We really loved walking on the property and seeing the breath taking views! Reading Farms is such a beautiful home full of history and intriguing art work. You must check out the library, such an amazing display of classics and a cozy space to relax and read. My husband enjoyed feeding the fish in the pond, and how every morning we had a beautiful waterfall scene out our bedroom window. Dinner by candlelight at the dining room table was glorious, and the view of the pool down the lane is so majestic! Woodstock is just a short drive with the quaintest little cafe's with delicious gourmet food. We visited Simon Pearce in Queechee Vt and loved the glass blowing demonstration, we bought the most beautiful wine glasses. We toured a maple syrup and cheese farm, of course we bought delicious samples to bring home for friends and family! Reading Farms in the fall was glorious with all the fall colors! We have already booked our next visit and we can't wait! We definitely recomend this property and have suggested it to many of our friends! Thank you Rich and Reading Farms for providing your home for our family to make such beautiful memories!

STUNNING RETREAT IN VERMONT!

  • 5 of 5
I had a lovely time at Reading Farms Estate over the Memorial Day weekend. The property is stunning, with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and excellent service and amenities. My group made full use of all this place has to offer - from hiking through the woods, to lounging by the pool, to enjoying a drink in the gazebo by the pond while listening to the waterfall. I highly recommend the place - it's great for groups, families and others looking for a private, relaxing place to "get away from it all".

AN AMAZINGLY PEACEFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
This place looked too good to be true so we were a bit apprehensive but took the leap of faith and booked it for a late foliage trip to Vermont after several conversations with the owners. I knew we were in for a surprise when we arrived at the gates. We rang the Caretakers and the gates slowly opened. We were so excited. Our caravan made it up the long drive arriving to a place from another world and time. I felt like we had just made a detour to Europe vs. Vermont. The Caretakers kindly welcomed us in the Courtyard and we began our tour and our incredible stay. Although a rental now, you can imagine the walls of this home having been decorated with Old Masters Paintings. Everything has been thought of in the updating of this historic home making it very comfortable. Anyone staying at Reading Farms is in for a treat. The booking process is very straight forward and clear. The owners of this property are very proud of it and you get a feeling they screen each guest during the booking process. The property is very private yet conveniently located to Woodstock (a very charming village) and Killington (great for a gondola ride and of course skiing when there is snow). When time permits and Vermont is our destination we will be booking Reading Farms again. Our daughter has even expressed interest in having her wedding at Reading Farms in 2015. A wedding on this property must be amazing.
