Welcome to Fair Haven Farmhouse, our spacious, tastefully furnished 2100 sq. ft Vermont home. Within its private 100-acre surroundings, this 1850's farmhouse sits on a jut of land just above the Poultney River and looks out onto 50 acres of farmed, organic clover fields and the Green Mountains. Soak in the hot tub, cool off in the private, in-ground pool or just take in the lush mountain views from one of the rocking deck chairs . For the more adventurous, set off for the the river, our rustic riverside deck and a 4-person paddle boat.
Other seasonal, out-door features:
*Fishing on the Poultney River (over 1 mile of frontage)
*Land use for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing
This is a well-loved home ideal for families with children, Girl's weekends or couples looking for a relaxing, undisturbed getaway.
From the poolside mahogany deck we built several summers ago to the refinished 16' wide wood-plank floors, this house reflects our love for the outdoors and our passion for preserving its interiors. This is our oasis; our escape. Let it be yours. Spend your mornings on the river, your afternoons by the pool and your evenings on the deck. Indulge in a weekend of hard-to-come-by family time or take a few restive days for a quiet leaf-peeping retreat.
