The Bedroom Layouts are described here to help you plan for how it works for your group of travelers The loft bedroom has a queen size bed and a small private bathroom with the jetted bathtub. The main floor bedroom has a bunk bed in which the top is a single and the bottom is full-sized. Across the hall is a large bathroom with a shower (no tub). The basement which is unfinished, but bright and airy, has a queen size futon and 2 canvas slung camping cots. If you plan to use the cots bring a sleeping bag as that works better than trying to put sheets on them.
The living room has a CD player and a few CDs, a TV with a VCR player. Although most people don’t come to VT to watch TV, I should point out that due to the look angle to the satellite and DirecTV issues with local affiliates, you will not get NBC or PBS on the TV. There are also family games on the book shelf along with a selection of books to read. Numerous brochures of what to do in the area and a bird watching guide. The glass fronted soapstone wood stove is a centerpiece for the room as an added bit of atmosphere to the warm of the furnace. Firewood is provided. There is a ceiling fan in the cathedral ceiling of the living room creating not only cool air during the summer but also distributing the hot air in the Winter. The dining area has a table with 6 chairs, tablecloth, place mats, napkins are provided. A vacuum cleaner is in the downstairs closet to help clean up any spills.

Everyday wear, flatware, cutlery, glasses and numerous serving containers complete the cabinet. There is your usual assortment of small appliances like microwave, toaster, coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, blender and tea kettle. The pantry also has spices and kitchen staples so that you don’t have to buy a huge bag of sugar or flour during your short stay. There is a phone in the kitchen and upstairs bedroom. There is a corded phone in the basement to use in case of power outages.
The deck has a propane grill and should the gas run out there is an extra canister in the basement. There are wicker chairs and table for the porch, a picnic table and benches and hammock for your enjoyment during the warmer seasons.

The stalls can be shut with a tube gate for closure or left open as a run-in area from the small wooded paddock. There is a water hydrant near the barn and a pitchfork and wheelbarrow are provided to assist you in striping the stalls when you leave. No there are no horses provided….but there is a horse riding facility (Kedron Valley Stables) 3 miles away where you can probably squeeze in a lesson or ride in their horse drawn wagons!
