Brian Jerome purchased this House in 2008
Why Brian Jerome chose Goshen
We purchased this hilltop farm as a weekend getaway, and for the beautiful pastures where our sheep graze during the spring, summer and fall. We harvest the wild apple trees - and every fall we make cider from the delicious, tart apples. In the spring, we tap the maple trees and make enough syrup for our family and friends. The views are magnificent and we find much relaxation in our mountain home.
What makes this House unique
The property is one of the few remaining farms with open fields in Goshen. The land is situated next to the Green Mountain National Forest which provides endless possibilities of outdoor recreation, including biking, xc skiing, hiking, swimming, boating, birding and fishing. Many of our guests are writers, and find the location a wonderful place to work and vacation. The farmhouse is just a short drive for those attending MIddlebury College's Bread Loaf School of English in Ripton, Vt. Many Middlebury College parents and alumni rent our home for Parent's Weekend and Graduation - just 30 minutes away from campus.

A wonderful getaway in rural Vermont
This was our third stay at the farm house in Goshen. We keep coming back for a reason: this place is heaven. The property is a beautiful old farmhouse that has been well restored. It is comfortable and has all of the niceties of modern life (good kitchen, excellent water pressure, etc.), with one big exception: no cell service. For us, this was a delight, but I imagine that some guests might not appreciate the lack of connectivity with the outside world. We keep coming back because staying here allows us to really unplug. The farmhouse is situated on a big property: there is a barn, several paddocks (housing sheep!), an old orchard, and woods. The house is near several great hikes and places to swim. It's an easy drive to nearby towns, but they are not *too* close.
I am happy that your return visit was an excellent one and that you enjoy our farmhouse and property, as much as we do! So glad that you were able to hike and swim during those hot days - Goshen Dam and Silver Lake are magical in mid-summer. Many rural areas of Vermont lack quality cell service, but we have found that AT&T works pretty. The house has internet/wifi (if you want it!), too. Hope to see you again next year!!
Excellent place. Highly recommended!
We are happy that you enjoyed our farmhouse. It is truly a special place. Hope to see you again!
Idyllic Farmhouse setting in the Green Mountains.
We loved our stay at the Carlisle Hill Farmhouse. The house was everything we could have asked for. The country setting was perfect. We loved starting our mornings with coffee on the porch and finishing the day with a glass of wine, from one of the local wineries, on the porch. The house was very comfortable and well equipped and we lacked nothing. The property was beautiful. The days were so peaceful, relaxing and private that our stay seemed to last forever.
There was so much to do in the area. Every day we went out on the road for day trips. We loved the mountain scenery, the small villages and the beautiful rivers and streams that ran along every roadway through the mountains. We stopped at the US Forest Service blueberry field and to our delight found that the blueberries were starting to ripen. It is truly a wonderful spot.
Everything we needed for supplies was easy to find in Brandon. Absolutely loved Cafe Provence restaurant. Has Sunday brunch and two dinners there - quite good.
We would definitely stay at this home again and would recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors and peace and quiet.
Our heart felt thanks to our hosts Stephanie and Brian - we loved your farmhouse.

We'll be back!
This was our second visit to this delightful farmhouse. It is so serene! Great hiking is close by. We had a sunny, cool week. It was great.
The house is very comfortable. The kitchen and full bath are new. The bed was great, I slept like a baby.
We'll be back.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. You had a magical week with superb Vermont weather. Hope to see you again for your third visit to our farmhouse!
This is a place to appreciate the hills of Vermont, to breath crisp morning air, to hear the silence...the world at the bottom of the dirt road and the highway beyond...can wait.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed our little corner of Vermont. Your review says it all! Thanks for being wonderful guests.
The Heart of the Country
This is the second time we've stayed on the farm. It's a dream come true: relaxing, quiet, perfect for thought--situated in the radiant hills of Vermont, seven sheep to keep us company. The hosts left the place completely equipped in all aspects. Lovely. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Robert, We are pleased that you enjoyed your second stay in Goshen. You had the most perfect September weather! We look forward to seeing you again, Stephanie and Brian
The farmhouse is only 6.5 miles from Brandon’s village center where you can enjoy its many shops, restaurants and galleries, 19 miles from Middlebury, 8 miles from Middlebury College’s Breadloaf Campus, and one and half miles from Blueberry Hill Inn. The property is located within the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area – offering endless walking, hiking and mountain biking trails. Swim or kayak at nearby Silver Lake or Sugar Hill Reservoir and fish in the local trout streams or small lakes. Visit Branbury State Park on Lake Dunmore for excellent beach, swimming and boating. This is the location of several triathalons each summer.
Great Restaurants in Brandon (Cafe Provence) and in Middlebury (American Flatbread).
