About the Property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Experience contemporary living in a beautiful Vermont country setting. The Fielder Farm offers a unique and stunning Vermont vacation rental home in the heart of the Green Mountains.

Relax in our post-and-beam, monitor barn home. Everything you need to make our home your home is provided. Let the gracious living area and professionally equipped kitchen inspire the host in you as you invite family and friends to enjoy a sunset from the second floor windows or take a long soak in the hot tub after a day of your favorite winter activity.

On 230 acres, the Farm has its own backcountry trails, a sledding hill and with a little shoveling the pond becomes your own personal ice rink. Access to the Catamount Trail is right out your door. Snowshoe to the top of Little Baldie then ride your board or skis home.

The highlight of the lower farm is the Pond. Surrounded by acres of maintained lawn, the Pond is the heart and spirit of the Fielder Farm. It provides an unlimited source of entertainment throughout the year and attracts even the most reticent of visitors. The water is deep, clear and irresistible. Stone steps and rocky outcrops make entering and exiting the water easy and pleasant in the heat of summer and getting on and off the ice hassle free with your skates in the winter.

Guests enter the Barn on the ground floor through the Mud Room featuring a native slate floor, dozens of cubbies in a variety of sizes and ample wall space covered with hooks. No matter the season every guest will find more than enough space to stow personal gear.

As you climb the stairs to the second floor Living space your attention is immediately drawn up the custom post and beam frame to the arching bridge and Monitor ceiling 25 feet above. A half a dozen windows along the eastern wall offer a brilliant view of the pond, lower pasture and mountains beyond and fill the space with light throughout the day all year long. This light is the perfect complement to the natural finish on the heart pine floors. The thoughtful arrangement and open design of the second floor living space allows a number of activities to carry on harmoniously.

Paying close attention to the details can make a big difference when it comes to using a kitchen day-to-day. The owners of the Barn are keen chefs who spent months cooking in this kitchen. The Kitchen combines elegance and functionality, blending Vermont granite and butcher block counter tops, heart pine floors with stainless steel appliances and wood cabinets. The social space encourages casual interaction, and provides a bird’s eye view of the meadow and stream below.

The Kitchen is open to the Dining area and the view beyond. The extendable table allows seating for 10 with room for two more at the kitchen island.

Glass doors behind the dinning table open onto the spacious deck making the gas grill convenient to the kitchen all year long. It is also the perfect platform for the 6 person hot tub.

Two bedrooms with similar appointments off the second floor living space make sharing the Barn uncomplicated.

The Loft bedrooms are accessible by a modified ship’s ladder. Each Loft has 3 built-in twin beds, a walk-in closet and plenty of built–in drawer and floor space.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Bert Dickerson was born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He moved with his family to Jericho Ctr. , Vermont at the age of five when his parents both took faculty positions in the English Department at the University. Upon graduating from Mount Mansfield Union High, Bert returned to Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina to complete his education. One fateful day after graduation, while recovering from a Dead concert on the Mall in Washington DC, Bert met Sarah. She was a girl from Rome, educated in Athens (both in Georgia) on her way North in search of….. something else. “You ought to go to Nantucket?” Bert suggested. He had been spending summers there his whole life and was returning to work for yet another summer with no real plans for his future. Sarah thought that sounded pretty good so she drove on to Hyannis, took the noon boat and never looked back. They got married in Siasconset a couple of years later and dove head first into island life. “It’s like a trade school.” Sarah said. “Anything you ever wanted to learn to do, you can learn it here.” And they did. Working a variety of jobs between them – restaurant work, carpentry, bookkeeping, house cleaning, landscaping, and event tent assembly - they even learned to make bagels. As busy as they were they managed to have two kids, Angus and Mary Jo, and renovate their first home on Surfside. After twenty years they were exhausted. “We need a break” they both agreed. “Remember that piece of property we bought when we first got married? It’s near my Mother, and the kids will go to the same high school I went to.” reckoned Bert. So in 2001 they moved. Bert was home again. Sarah was happy and to sell the idea of leaving Nantucket to live in Vermont to the kids, they all got snowboards. Angus and Mary Jo both graduated from MMU just like their father and moved to Boston. Sarah works at Camels Hump Middle School in Richmond and Bert works on the farm. He built a new barn, renovated the old farm house, ma
