          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: Shawn and I, (Diana) are Art Directors who have worked for years in New York and other cities around the world. After living in MANY places we have chosen to settle here on our beautiful 'Four-Legged Farm' in southern Vermont. Come share our love for the place. Join us for a week, a weekend, a month or an extended stay at 'The Loft'. Share eggs from our hens. Share our garden delights. Enjoy local delicacies and all that the incredible Connecticut River Valley has to offer. We are friendly, handy and low-key people and will give you as much input as you need to find all you are looking for. And we'll leave you alone to relax, explore and do your own thing. We are both animal lovers and Diana is an avid and life-long horsewoman who enjoys nothing more than sharing her love of horses with others. Ask about the special opportunity for private, guided horseback rides on our own horses through our amazing wooded trails, down country roads and across the greenest farm fields you've ever seen.

          Why the Owner Chose Putney:
          We offer the clean, high-end comforts of a hotel, (great bed, bedding, thick towels, beautiful shower) with the additional privacy, space and charm that a hotel just cannot offer. In addition, the setting is just terrific! Our farm is situated between 2 quaint Vermont villages and close to a several larger towns with great places to explore. It's an easy drive to several ski areas, (35-45 easy driving minutes). We make our coffee, and hit the slopes ourselves by 9 a.m. on many a Winters morning. The local villages welcome tourists with a variety of rural yet sophisticated restaurants, cafes, galleries, bookstores and activities. Outdoor adventurers will find endless trails, streams, lakes, and mountains to explore. 'The Loft at Four-Legged Farm' allows you to truly escape to the country while keeping all the comforts of home...or better. Our place is a well cared for and well loved gentleman's farm. The apartment features a full, modern kitchen, wi-fi, flatscreen TV with streaming media. A front porch with swing, a back deck, and a wood stove give you many places to curl up with a book or just sit and enjoy the views.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          There are so many pretty spots on the property to sit and relax. You'll have trouble deciding where is the best place to sit. And if you don't want to unplug...we're connected. Wireless and a flatscreen TV with streaming media is all yours. We LOVE being hosts and sharing with our guests: • Enjoy good coffee beans, organic teas, half-n-half and fresh eggs from our happy free-range hens, all in 'The Loft' when you arrive. • Share our garden harvest! Pick your own veggies and herbs from our garden in season. • Enjoy dried and fresh organic herbs in the kitchen, (oil and vinegar for cooking also provided). • Take a private guided horseback ride through the most scenic and amazing trails, (additional cost, please inquire for details). • Enjoy a dip in the farm pond or a thrilling jump into the clear local swimming hole in Summer. • We will light the wood stove for you in Winter. Cozy up with some hot cider or mulled wine. • Enjoy U-pick strawberries, blueberries, apples, pumpkins and more, from the local farms in season. • Enjoy the local Maple Syrup 'tasting room' where you can sample a wide variety of local maple syrups that make Vermont Maple Syrup unbeatable. • Sample Vermont Cheese and see how it's made at Grafton Cheese Company. • Load-up at the many farm stands and nearby farmstead stores brimming with veggies, flowers, herbs, cheese, milk and meats. • Try Walpole Creamery's fresh Ice Cream made from the most local of cows, (The Girls'). • Eat at Cafe Loco at Harlow Farm where your delicious fresh breakfast or lunch comes to you while you sit outside on the beautiful organic farm - watching the veggies roll in and the cows stroll by while you eat. • Cook in the kitchen or head out for a pint & fare at the Pub. Try Irish Music night, or in Summer sit amongst the tree on the tree house deck. • Enjoy the many fine dining establishments featuring fresh local 'farm to table' food of VT and NH.
