Once you are here, you will probably never want to leave. Historic farmhouse on a working farm. Miles of trails and 200 acres to explore - making physical distancing easy and satisfying. Under 15 minutes to thriving Brattleboro. Nestle by the woodstove at the end of the day and enjoy all the best that southern Vermont has to offer. Our farm offers so much more than a place to stay.

We kindly request that weekends are booked with a two night minimum.

El alojamiento
We 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.

** We recognize all the uncertainties that come in this time of COVID-19. We have found ourselves to never have been more grateful for living in the country, where physical distancing is already part of the fabric of our lives. Consider us a retreat this summer, where you can shake off the spring’s confinement **

The residence is an autonomous 2-3 bedroom, 2-story apartment that is part of the original 240 year old farmhouse. It has its own well-appointed kitchen, bathroom and living room and wood-stove. Outfitted with a Queen and Full bed, this is a welcoming place for families or couples traveling together. 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.

A third bedroom is available if your party would like to expand. Just make your reservation for 5 people and a small bedroom with bunk beds will be included (available April - October).

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Many enjoy relaxing into the farm and stay at the farm for their entire visit. Besides the pond and trails, there are hammocks, vistas of Mt Monadnock, or a short walk to the neighbor's organic strawberry and flower farm for added sustenance and beauty. It's an easy 3 mile bike ride to the Green River dam for swimming, or a short drive to go blueberry picking at the Whetstone Ledges. Winter guests can enjoying skiing at Mt Snow (50 minutes away), or Stratton Mountain (70 minutes) or have miles of snowshoeing trails right out the front door.

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. We love Vermont for its land-use aesthetic and progressive politics, and between us, have 40 years in this beautiful state. Between us we speak enough rudimentary Spanish and French to help with travel and other details.
