We, Meghan and Steve, welcome you to join us for a few restful days or weeks here at our historic Vermont farm where we carry on an uninterrupted tradition of grass farming begun in the late 1700's. While Sunrise Farm is a fully operational and productive farm, it also rests in one of the most idyllic and biologically diverse sites in Vermont.

Most notable about the farm is our lack of pretense. Every working farm is a work in progress, balancing between daily chores and seasonal rhythms, busy summers and rejuvenating winters. We are fluent in the language of sweat equity and value muddy boots. For many visitors this can feel more like a welcoming foreign country than a shiny Holiday Inn.

If your interest lies in making the most of nearby Brattleboro and other area gems our location, ten minutes from I-91, makes that a breeze. If you prefer spending time hiking, swimming, or bird watching, our farm swimming pond and miles of well maintained private trails though our 200 acres of Vermont beauty are here for you. Diverse wildlife from moose to goshawks make their home here as well.

Your hosts can explain explain the intricacies of Vermont farming and forestry from maple sap production, timber growing and sawmilling, pasture management for beef and poultry, and vegetable growing and preserving.

The residence is an autonomous 2 bedroom, 2-story apartment that is part of the original 240 year old farmhouse. It has its own kitchen, bathroom and living room. Outfitted with a Queen and Full bed, this is a welcoming place for families or couples traveling together. Additionally, there is a small room that can be used for families wishing to spread out, outfitted with bunk beds and a trundle, potentially accommodating three children. There is an extra charge for this room ($30 /night - just book for 5 people when you make the reservation, and the fee will be included). The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need to prepare your own meals. In season, pick your own garden produce such as fresh cut greens, ripe tomatoes, or fruit from the orchard. Or, you can enjoy Brattleboro's great selection of restaurants with suggestions available from your hosts.

The style of the farm is relaxed, as it's an interesting conglomeration of the 2 families who have farmed here. You will see the original hemlock floor and hand planed moulding in the living room from the founding Thurber family, Bertha Thomas' 1900s wallpaper in the stairwell, and wide pine floors grown and milled at the farm in one of the bedrooms. The furniture is auction -eclectic mixed with some beautiful antiques.

Most who stay here comment about the "magic of Sunrise Farm ", remarking on the noticable confluence of natural energy here. Please email us with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.

Interaktion mit Gästen

We leave that up to our guests. If you prefer privacy, we respect that. If you want to be more social, we love to meet new people, share our knowledge of farming and our corner of Vermont, and trade ideas on anything from the meaning of progress to progressive agriculture.

This is an early to bed, early to rise farm, encouraged by our resident Black Copper Maran rooster, so late check-ins cannot be accommodated.

Please, no dogs.

This is a smoke-free household, though smoking is okay outdoors (just not in the garden, to help prevent the spread of tobacco mosaic virus).

Please turn off the porch lights at night, as the night sky is gorgeous.

Fences are electric, though feel free to walk through pastures (just keep the gates closed).

We have two ponds. One is open all the time for swimming, the other one is open all the time except for between 3:30-5pm (this may fluctuate a bit depending on the weather), when we ask for a bit of quiet time ourselves for pond use.

Außerdem musst du Folgendes beachten:
Treppensteigen ist erforderlich - There are stairs that lead to the bedrooms, all of which are upstairs. The bathroom is on the first floor.
Haustier(e) leben im Gebäude - Our Golden Retriever puppy: Ida

Steve and Meghan's place was a wonderful spot to get away from it all and just chill. It was awesome being able to pick their veggies and the eggs were some of the best I've ever had. The ponds were fun to dip in and the house was clean throughout. Steve and Meghan were kind and easy to communicate with and very welcoming without being at all intrusive. Such a pleasure. All around an excellent experience!

From the moment we pulled up the driveway, our expectations were exceeded. The farm was a natural playground for our two kids; between Ida (the retriever puppy), catching frogs and the ponds, they were in heaven. After a busy week in Montreal, relaxing in this bucolic environment was just what the doctor ordered. While we were as solitary as we wished to be, Meghan was always available with a cheerful greeeting or insight about the farm. It was clear that much thought had gone into the accomodations. The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked. Bedrooms and living areas clean and easy to navigate. Can't recommend this place enough.

Meghan and Steve were wonderful hosts. Meghan let us join her on her farm chores, and spent a lot of time answering questions about the farm. Steve gave us good tips for the area. We had a great time hanging out on the farm: swimming in the pond, making a barbeque and bonfire in the backyard, visiting the chickens, and running around in the pastures. Meghan even mowed the lawn for us so my kids could play wiffle ball in front of the house! The house was well kept and well stocked. Plenty of cooking equipment, games, reading material, etc... They also have a friendly puppy named Ida who is a lot of fun to play with. Don't have enough good things to say about this rental. This is a great vacation for anyone, especially if you just want to relax and not run around to different sites and attractions.

Meghan and Steve are the most considerate hosts. The apartment is wonderful as is the setting but what truly makes this a "come back as often as you can" sort of place is the generosity of the hosts. What fun!

A beautiful, peaceful place. We loved our stay there. Our 3 year old is still telling everyone she sees about collecting eggs from the chicken coop with Meghan!

Meghan and Steve have a great place and a beautiful farm. We loved the trails, swimming, eating fresh raspberries and just exploring the farm. Meghan was great with the kids (and adults) showing us around for morning chores. The beef, chicken and eggs for sale were outstanding. The house was very well kept, very clean and well stocked with all the essentials.

Nutzerprofil von Steve And MeghanSteve And Meghan ist ein Superhost.

We both like to have our hands in the dirt and our minds in a good book. Meghan, as a midwife, delivers babies at our local hospital and Steve, as a forester and tree farmer, delivers logs to the farm sawmill to make into useful products for the community. Our first love, other than each other, is sustainable agriculture, whether growing healthy grass-fed beef and chickens or growing and preserving much of our own food on our 200 acre, 240 year old farm.

We love Vermont for its land-use aesthetic and progressive politics, and between us, have over 30 years in this beautiful state.

Between us we speak enough rudimentary Spanish and French to help with travel and other details.
