A scenic getaway in rural Vermont, the possibilities are endless and we're here to help. Located in horse country just 6 miles from GMHA, 12 miles from Woodstock, and 14 miles from Okemo, the farmhouse provides a tranquil setting to spend time with family and friends off the beaten path.
If you are looking for a true Vermont experience in a quaint and charming farmhouse, Horse and Hound may be just right for you. People say they like it here because of the surroundings, the cozy and spacious feel of our home, comfortable beds and linens, and our proximity to GMHA. Nearby ski resorts include Suicide Six, Okemo, and Killington, as well as a Nordic ski center at the Woodstock Inn and Resort. Whether you wish to lounge under the apple tree with a book, grill on the back deck, take a dip in a nearby swimming hole, or hit the slopes for your vacation week, our hope is that you get to have fun, rest, and play, while feeling right at home.
This rental which we call the "Main House" of Horse and Hound Farmhouse is the larger portion of an 1800's farmhouse in rural Vermont. The "Main House" rental consists of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living room areas, and a spacious kitchen. This rental is attached to another separate part of the farmhouse called "The West End". "The West End" has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a separate back entrance for West End guests. The owner lives in the upstairs portion of the West End and rents nightly rooms in the downstairs portion of the West End. If you would like to rent a West End Room in addition to the Main House rental, please inquire directly.
The 9 acre property and small pond are shared between Main House guests, West End guests, and the owner. On property, there are 3 horses, 3 goats, 2 dogs, and 2 barn cats. Our two golden retrievers roam the property freely so this rental is ideal for families or groups who love animals and dogs. We consider allowing two guest dogs in the Main House by permission only. We enforce the usual breed restrictions and ask that you keep them in the central living room during the day. We charge $25 per night for each guest dog. So for 2 guest dogs, that is $50 per night additional.
We have memory foam cots, a high chair, and portable cribs available (Graco Pack and Play). Please reserve in advance, as we provide these for West End guests and Main House guests depending on need.
Kitchen, tv with Roku, wifi.

A low key guest, I look for a place that's cozy, comfortable and quiet where I can rest easy and wake up ready to take flight. I consider Airbnb to be a little life adventure, and I look forward to getting to know new folks and new places. My first name is Virginia, but I go by my middle name which is Tayloe.
