Why Owner/Manager chose Marshfield

Site of the famous 1970s commune Pie in the Sky; a beautiful old Greek revival style farmhouse, constructed during the US Civil war and added onto in 1880s, and in 1999. Adding a new addition in 1999 with lovely sunroom and hot tub is what caused us to say: "this is too pretty not to share" and that led to the Bed & Breakfast and the Activist Retreat.

What makes this farmhouse unique

A very quiet hillside location, close to Goddard College, we are a frequent respite for students who do not chose to stay on campus, for their parents, for families during graduation weekends, for "Discover Goddard days". We are the closet accommodation for recreation in Groton State Forest. We are across a small valley from the edge of the the Marshfield Town Forest, and have our own hiking trails on the land. There are farm animals to feed and bet, and a very entertaining flock of ducks!

Beautiful farmhouse in a pastoral setting

  • 5 of 5

"The Pie in the Sky" is a beautiful old farmhouse set in rolling hills north of Montpelier. The owners, Jay and Jude, have set aside half the house for guests, adding a number of luxury touches like a solarium, hot tub, and three-vent downstairs shower. They've managed to do so without letting the charm of the old rooms escape. Art and books abound inside. There's also a lovely small outside porch where we watched the sun set -- the views at the Pie and in the surrounding area are fabulous. Ducks and sheep added to the magic. The place is peaceful, high above a dirt road that doesnt boost much traffic.

Despite the quiet, we found lots to do in the area, including wandering Montpelier, biking the ridge roads (had to pump our way up there of course), hiking the town forest, and appreciating the spectacular nurseries in the area -- Perennial Pleasures and the Vermont Flower Farm. The town of Plainfield is also a delight.

Highly recommended; we'd love to return.
