Reading Farms is one of the signature properties in Vermont, the property has been featured in Architectural Digest along with House Beautiful. Reading Farms is ideal for large family reunions and corporate retreats as we have so many spaces to meet or disappear ;)
What makes this Estate unique
Reading Farms is 100% completely private estate, once you are here there is no reason to leave, Reading Farms has everything you could ask for. Complete with our own helipad so you never have to touch the streets.

The property, staff, and location are all phenomenal! I could not recommend this more!!!
Thank you so much! Your group was a joy and we look forward to your next trip.
The 400 acres include groomed lawns, forests, mowed trails. The rooms are lovely and the building is full of books, antiques and interesting art. Arturo, the caretaker, is immediately accessible and very helpful. Homemade cookies were waiting for us but we were on our own to enjoy the walks, pool, hot tub, and well-equipped kitchen. This turned out to be a perfect setting for our family reunion.
Thank you all so much for being such wonderful people! We are beyond happy with such a great review and we look forward to hosting your group again! Have a wonderful rest of your summer .
This property is highly impressive! From the monogramed towels to the super soft sheets and AMAZING beds. The staff on the property was respectful and attentive to all our needs. We had the chef prepare one of our meals which was the highlight of the trip truly skilled! The area around the estate is full of culture and the town or Woodstock is a perfect New England town. Do yourself a favor and indulge yourself at a very luxurious property. Thank you Reading Farms I hope to return soon!
One of a kind vacation!
Our large group of friends and family just left Reading Farms and no one in the group was disappointed . The estate had more than enough room for all of us to spread out and enjoy intimate conversations and then regroup for dinner as a whole. The bedding was A+ and so comfortable most of us slept in for the first time in months. The staff was gracious and so pleasant . The chef prepared an amazing meal upon our arrival and was so worth it. If you are thinking about Vermont do not pass this place up it was truly a one of a kind stay! Thank you all so much we will be back again next winter. -The Monroe group
This is a long overdue review and, to be honest, no amount of fawning will ever be enough for this one of a kind estate.
My wife and I held our wedding and next day festivities at Reading Farms Estate and we could not have been any happier. Honestly no pictures are vivid enough to capture the sheer elegance of Reading Farms Estate or its truly private nature.
As so many of the reviewers have pointed out, Reading Farms Estate is a portal to another place and time. Old world elegance and charm come to mind but it is so much more. The main house is an art and food lovers dream, housing not only an impressive and what I can only assume generations long collection of thoughtfully curated paintings, sculptures and prints; but also boasts a the single best kitchen of any house I have ever seen. All this and a choice of pool or pond for swimming, a theatre and well equipped gym, a well stocked library and enough room for 20 adults to spread out and enjoy silence.
Throughout the entire planning process, Stacy was not only professional, prompt and knowledgeable but also incredibly kind and insightful. He’s knows every inch, nook and cranny of Reading Farms Estate and was the perfect guide to assist us every step of the way. Answering all of our many questions, co-ordinating with our planners and encouraging us to think outside the box and really personalize our wedding. His property manager, Matt, is also a tremendous help and is one of the most true and genuine persons I have ever met.
My wife and I are both so happy and thrilled with our stay, our festivities and our wedding at Reading Farms Estate. Stacy and Reading Farms Estate provided us with memories we never thought possible and neither of us can express just how warmly we and our guests were received nor can we ever say enough about this truly special and unique place.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! It always puts such a smile on our faces when a wonderful couple, their family and friends have such a great time with us. We truly hope to see you again and we wish you both a lifetime of memories from your wedding and special event at Reading Farms Estate.
Exceptional and Impressive!
Well. Based on the website, my expectations were high – – but always guarded-- and my interaction with the owners prior to renting The Farm was probably guarded on their part as well. I now know why.
The approach, the property entrance, the care and attention to detail, and the lovely little touches, all added to what I can confidently say was a superlative property and experience for everyone.
Our gathering was a family get together of 20 people, spanning many ages. All loved the place and were wowed by the lovely grounds, stewardship by the owners, and surprises around every corner. For example, the ponds were stocked with fish that the little ones loved feeding. The bedrooms were made up with luxury touches all around, and the movie theater had massage chairs. The gazebo had a fun hot tub.
And all was overseen with a high degree of care and attention of the owners and caretakers. The rooms and common areas were immaculate. When the grill ran out of propane, a replacement was on site in minutes. (don't miss the bonfire with their Smore's and fun surprises – – not to be missed and you can't duplicate what they do, and their surprises, with a trip to the local grocery store, so go with their package).
It's hard to summarize the experience we had, as there is something akin to good karma that pervades The Farm, as described frequently by Stacy. The best evidence of the fun everyone in the family had is that each have asked me when we can go again. And we will.
Not to be missed. A bargain for what you get. A carefully curated property evidenced by loving ownership.
A beautiful property that will not disappoint, cared for by lovely people who know what to do. James and Mojan
Thank you both so much for such a wonderful review. It is so hard to explain to others via telephone and email how wonderful and truly special this property is, so I am happy that you and your family and friends were able to enjoy such a beautiful weekend at Reading Farms. You are always welcome back and we can't wait to have some more surprises for your next trip!
