Spacious, comfortable Vermont country home on 600 acres at end of mile-long road. 1820's farmhouse nicely rehabbed, solar-powered. Spectacular setting with miles of trails, mountain views. Share ample kitchen and large living room with piano, books, comfy furniture. Covered porches, gardens, pond. Flexible accommodations depending on needs, with bedrooms of various sizes, all with fine views. Secluded, peaceful refuge. Friendly hosts, long-time Vermont residents, available as much as desired.

The space

Our large third-floor space is suitable for a couple, family, or group of friends. Open floor plan with three dormers, two queen-size beds plus two fold-out futons (sleeps up to six). Sitting area, TV monitor for DVDs or streaming. Desk, dressers, closet area. Windows on three sides with excellent views of gardens, fields, far-off hills. Private bath on second floor. Functions well as either a roomy private space or dormitory-type sleeping space for small crowd.

The house is a 200-year-old farmhouse that we rehabbed ourselves. Not fancy, but attractive, clean, well-furnished, comfortable, with modern appliances and an up-to-date wood-fired heating system. We're off the grid and get our power from a solar array. Water comes from a gravity-fed spring and is uncommonly pure and fresh-tasting.

Guest access

4-wheel drive is generally required to negotiate our road in winter. Contact us if lacking, and arrangements can be made.

Guests share our large kitchen with two sinks, ample counter space, dishes and pots and pans galore. Basic breakfast provided, and a well-stocked pantry of staples, condiments, etc. is always available to guests preparing their own meals. The living room is equipped with comfy couches, good lighting, well-stocked bookshelves, a cupboard full of puzzles and board games, and a baby grand piano piled with sheet music and songbooks. Beyond the french doors is a large wrap-around porch that's lovely for sitting, reading, chatting, or eating meals in balmier months.

Our home is on a 600-acre property surrounded by meadows, forests, and hills. A grassy-banked swimming pond sits a short distance away. We have a network of mapped trails for hiking, skiing, or snowshoeing that link to other equally pristine woodland properties. Trails offer spectacular views of Green (Vermont) and White (New Hampshire) Mountains. Much of the surrounding area has been protected from development through the Orange County Headwaters Project (target area 35,000 acres), which we helped start. It is one of the largest unbroken sections of undeveloped forest land in this part of Vermont; wildlife is particularly abundant. All this can be explored on foot from outside our door.

My wife and I spent the weekend at Jude and Dans place. The space was exactly as described. We enjoyed our stay at the third floor loft. The space was very comfortable and private. We watched the sunrise from the front of the house as it rose above the mountain tops in the far distance. The view is absolutely incredible! You would normally have to travel to a scenic overlook to see anything even remotely similar. Jude and Dan are very nice and informative, we had fantastic conversation over breakfast and they made us feel welcome and at home. I brought a telescope to view the heavens as I knew this property would be dark due to its location away from city lights. I was not disappointed as the night sky was beautiful from this location. We even had a small star party! We also took a ride to the top of the property that provided open views of mount Washington in the distance, it was absolutely fantastic. (4 wheel drive required) I highly recommend this airbnb!

Lovely, tranquil spot at the end of a secluded, scenic road. Jude was away, but Dan waited for my arrival, even though I was late, and made me feel welcome. He made coffee, and we had great chats. I hope to get back sometime, and meet Jude as well. Peaceful, and beautiful spot.

My parents and I had a wonderful night at Jude and Dan's place. The surrounding is beautiful especially in this fall season. All the sofas and beds are well made and are very comfortable. The house is very stylish and makes you want to stay longer! Jude and Dan are very considerable and generous. I would come again if I ever going to visit Vermont. Highly recommend to everyone!

Dear Jude, dear Dan, thank you for your kindness throughout our short stay! My parents and I very much enjoyed airbnb-ing at your beautiful home and admired every detail, including the well-decorated 3rd floor bedroom with wood finishes, backyard porch and the gardens. I'd love to have a house like yours in the woods! Breakfast was just delicious, Jude, and we enjoyed our conversations over coffee in the morning. You all made our trip to VT special.

Thank you for kind words, SunJeong. It was an equal pleasure for us. I'm sorry I missed out on breakfast--Jude, Steve, and June had a lovely time with you. Please thank your father for the Frost poem and his thoughts about it. I have one to send him too (one I also have learned by heart). Tell him we'd love to see him & your mom "some other time" too. Blessings to you all.

Jude and Dan are gracious and considerate hosts and we loved the time we were able to spend with them on their land and in their quite remarkable home. This is a rather special place, but its remote, rural location means that it likely would not be the best place for everyone. The same is true with the fact that the primary guest suite, which is spacious, contains pretty much everything you might need, and sleeps at least 6, is on the third floor of the house, with the very nice bathroom down one flight of stairs. But, if that works for you, I would highly recommend visiting, ideally for more than one day so That you can soak it all in. Great place; great people.

Very warm welcome from Jude and Dan. They sent me the detailed directions to their house in case we lost without any signal in the mountain, which is very helpful. Kids are still excited although we have already been back for a couple of days. My nephew is from China. Driving in the mountains, he said it reminded him ‘The Wizard of OZ’. Jude picked the fresh cherries for kids, and showed us her beautiful garden. The house is more than 200 years!! Nice living room and kitchen! So wonderful and special experience! Highly recommended place to stay!

Thanks for the kind words, Qian. Glad you had a good stay. It was equally special for us having you and your family. Hope to see you again. Dan Qian: I'm still remembering how wonderful it was to sit down with women from China and discuss our universal women's issues, as if we were sisters. There are no barriers between women!! I wish you much happiness and success. Jude

Interaction with guests

For years we've hosted individuals and groups of all kinds, from family gatherings to weddings to attendees at workshops and meditation retreats in the area. Our lives have always seemed to blend with the interests of our visitors. We're happy to chat, provide information on the surroundings, lead guests on short walks, or, when desired, leave them alone to enjoy the peace and beauty of the place.

We're fortunate to live on this beautiful mountaintop. We look forward to sharing it with you.

About Jude & Dan

We are a mostly retired (though highly active) couple in our 70’s. We’ve mainly been a carpenter and teacher, though there’s been lots of homesteading and other assorted activities along the way. We have four grown children who come and go and do interesting stuff. We lived in coastal Alaska a while, settled in Vermont 30 years ago, started the Wellspring Waldorf school in Chelsea and the Lost Meadow Land Coop in West Corinth, where we now live. Interests: Sustainable living, biodynamic gardening, forest management, community organizing (mostly in the area of local food/ag), hiking, education, cooking, history (including the history of local places), literature, music, buddhist meditation, couples counseling, and making the world a more liveable place in small, tangible ways. We have had our house full of friends and family for years; we’re experienced in tending to people’s needs and making them feel comfortable. We’re easy to share a kitchen with. Our housekeeping style is neat but hopefully not obsessive. We’re happy to chat and offer local information, but also to respect our guests’ desire for solitude.
