Gaisler farm is perfect for a family vacation, retreats, reunions and more.
Your only neighbor is a Pumpkin and Christmas tree farm.
The ground floor is composed of the original layout where every room has a door to the outside and give a feeling of openness: the bright orange eat-in kitchen is surrounded by windows; while eating breakfast you can enjoy watching the birds on the side yard. The dining room and the living room open onto the porch and receive southern light. Off the dining room, is the royal blue Office: as you are working on your computer, you can enjoy the children sleighing down the side hill or witness the outdoor life going by .
For the cold winters days, the living room fireplace will warm you up. Next to it, in the oldest part of the house, you can entertain in the Morrocan room, while laying on the built-in banquette.
At the end of the day, you will go upstairs to find the bright yellow children's bedroom with 2 twin iron beds, the light blue blue master bedroom with 3 windows facing south and west and the guest bedroom facing west and north.
At the garden level is the other guest bedroom with a dutch door looking onto the outside. This room with its original fireplace used to be the cooking room back in 1700. It has a twin and double bed.
the 32 acres of this property is what makes it so unique; Situated at the foot of the Appalachian mountain, you are overlooking a small valley of farm fields.

ReviewsWrite a review
The house is everything described and more. It is set back off the road in a quiet and beautiful area. sitting on the porch with your morning coffee makes you never want to leave. One of the days we had a family cookout/reunion as a surprise to my wife for her birthday with approx 25 guests and there was more than enough room on the property. The kids spent most of the day at the frog pond. Everybody loved the place. I felt like we not only hit a homerun but a grand slam!

About the owner: The owner of Gaisler Farm is Sarah Raymond, a New York City interior designer. Sarah was born and raised in France in the Loire valley. In design, she worked for large hospitality and residential companies before creating her own company, Studio 808. Sarah acquired Gaisler Farm in 2003 and spent several years doing a top to bottom restoration. The farm has been returned to its original configuration and now is a restful showplace!
Why the Owner Chose Blairstown:
I was looking for an old farm house that remained me of my childhood growing up in the France countryside.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Close to the city and yet so far from civilization I enjoy the quietness of the property. Spending the weekend at the farm brings me back to nature.
