Your home is the beautifully restored historic French inspired barn, built in the 1820's, which has wide-plank floors, hand-hewn beams, soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces and New England charm. Perfect for a romantic getaway, a country vacation for a small family or a quiet retreat to nature, Boorn Brook Farm is the quintessential Vermont experience!
Once the country estate and studio of famed painter and fly fishing enthusiast Ogden Pleissner, Boorn Brook Farm has been restored to its original splendor. Situated on 53 acres of open meadows and old apple orchards with stunning 360 degree views, Boorn Brook Farm is protected by Lye Brook National Forest, yet within 5 minutes of the town centers of Manchester and Manchester Center. Boorn Brook Farm is also the new home of Green Mountain Falconry School!
Autumn is a magical time at Boorn Brook Farm where the mountains behind and in front of the Farm come alive with color. All the attractions of summer are available except with the need for a sweater in the evening!
Return home to build a fire in the stone fireplace, bake some bread in the stone bread oven in the fully equipped kitchen, play a game of pool in the game room, sip some hot chocolate and then watch the sun set behind Equinox Mountain from the outdoors firepit or the hot tub, right outside your master bedroom!
In the winter, skate on the pond, sled on the hill, snowshoe or cross country ski on the back trails, ski or snowboard at nearby Stratton or Bromley Mountains. Nearby are sleigh rides, great restaurants and shopping in Manchester, which is a short 5 minute ride from Boorn Brook Farm.
In the summer, take falconry lessons on site, swim in the spring-fed pond with a beach, play tennis on the private court next to the Barn, hike on the Farm's private trails or in the bordering Lye Brook Wilderness, fish in the brook and the on-site trout pond , or simply relax in one of the hammocks.
Children and adults alike will also enjoy our farm pets, our adorable goats, Pan and Axel! Dogs are welcome here on the farm.
