The dining room has a fireplace, grandmother clock, & table long enough to seat all your cousins for Thanksgiving; the library has many books, a desk, a sleep sofa, French doors & a fireplace; 2 living rooms with piano, 5-CD changer, TV with cable & DVD with small DVD & video libraries; upstairs sitting room with desk for laptop & trundle bed; 2 bathrooms, (upstairs shower, downstairs tub and shower); 2 trundles and a twin in the 'game room’, with a game nook, games, puzzles, & a TV w/VCR for the kids.


Lovely, comfortable family retreat: Bed linens are all cotton, with down or hypo-allergenic pillows & comforters, and the king & queen have feather-beds. There is an abundance of cotton towels, from washcloth to bath. Down & hypo-allergenic comforters, as well as old quilts, cotton blankets, &afghans fill the linen closets.

Other Amenities include: Gas stove; china, silverware, crystal, glasses & mugs, dinner service-ware; fully supplied kitchen; 2 fireplaces, kitchen wood-stove; piano; kitchen porch with outside dining; a kitchen/library deck with picnic table, wrought iron patio furniture, gas grill, 5-6 person hot tub & an outdoor fireplace; hiking-ski trails, hay fields, woodlands, brook; adirondack furniture & a hammock in the yard; fishing pond & a small canoe for use on our own little pond, or on the river or lake.
No smoking inside the house. Cigarettes, pipes & cigars are permitted on the screened-in porch or on the kitchen decks. Handicapped accessible only by arrangement & only on the first floor.

A Lovely Place to get Married: Sunny Slope Farm has seen many a family wedding throughout its long life, and the tradition continues.
There have been small Spring weddings held in the library & large Summer & Autumn weddings held in the fields or on the lawn. In 2006 alone there were 2 weddings in the barn, with the doors thrown wide to views of the hayfield & the apple tree. Last June there was a wedding held in the upper field, with a reception in a tent in the hayfield under a full moon, & during the last three Augusts, weddings with tents & string bands set up on the front lawn.
We do not do wedding planning for you, but we are glad to pass along the information about rentals, caterers, etc, that other couples used.
There is a small extra charge (please see Rates Section) for a wedding or reception held at Sunny Slope Farm, but the folks who've gotten married here have found it much more convenient & less expensive to get married in the place they're staying for a few days (either before, after or both!).
