Great place to unwind
Guy and Christine were fantastic! The property was just what we needed to relax and getaway from the city. We had an emergency with our dog. If it weren't for their quick actions, we would have spent our time in a vet E.R. They were so helpful, and able to tell us the best places to hike. Can't wait to come back!
Much needed R&R
Spirit Horse Farm is full of character. The main floor is huge and has several seating areas, which would be great for large groups. I visited with 2 friends to get out of the city for a few days.
Guy is very responsive and helpful. The air conditioner in my room broke the first night and he got a new one within a day or two. We went to the grocery store and our car broke down- Guy was wonderful and picked us up at the store and even drove my friend to the garage 15 miles away to pick up her car from the shop. That’s way above and beyond.
The only minor thing I would suggest is putting some fans on the main floor. The windows don’t open and there’s no screen door on the front door, so we could leave that open. It got very hot and muggy on the first floor.
Other than that, the house is very clean and the back deck is a wonderful place to have coffee in the morning!
Unique home and wonderful location
This home was really unique and felt instantly relaxing as soon as we walked inside of it. While you felt the calm of being "away," you are just a 3 minute drive to shops, restaurants and grocery stores and within 20 minutes of great hiking and skiing. In addition, the owners made our son and our dogs feel really welcome, which was really special to us.
So much fun!
We stayed here during one of the scariest times in our nation, COVID-19. Guy was attentive but respectful. The house was so much fun and had many cool things to do all around it! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be coming back in the future!
Wonderful weekend at Spirit Horse!
Everything was wonderful this weekend. It is an old barn that has been converted into over 5000 ft.² of lovely living space. It has everything you could imagine and then some. It’s perfect for anyone but also kid friendly. We utilized outdoor bbq, the indoor fireplace, the pool table, the chess set and listened to our favorite music on a Bose radio. Cooks will love the gourmet kitchen. Everywhere you look there are new things to find and enjoy. I look forward to booking this place again and bringing more family now that I know what we may expect. Jason
P.s. Musicians from Music City would love this retreat, it is loaded with musical instruments. It truly feels like “HomeAway” from Home.
20 minutes to Lime Rock Race Park
I am a local craftsmen, fine home builder and musician married with four children. We encourage travelers from all backgrounds to come visit Kent and explore the Litchfield Hills.
Guy purchased this Barn in 2002
Why Guy chose Kent
We love Kent for its unique blend of rural simplicity and cultural flair. The air is crisp, the water is clean and the rural underpinnings of this progressive town instill a calm tranquility and measured appreciation of the natural surroundings accessible to all from The Spirit Horse Farm. Our farm dates back to the founding of Kent, and remains an iconic property which once housed the local nursery school and kindergarten.
What makes this Barn unique
The Litchfield Hills offers visitors an exciting mix of easy country living with up to date cultural experiences in arts, music, entertainment, shopping and fine dining. Kent offers travelers access to all of these benefits plus offers great outdoor activities including hiking the Appalachian Trail, fishing, rafting and kayaking the Housatonic, or exploring miles of preserved land. Motorcyclists, and automobile enthusiasts also find Kent to be the perfect destination or way point while driving the Route 7 corridor through the Bershire foothills. The Spirit Horse Farm is located just at the north end of town and offers both convenience and a private retreat for rest and contemplation at the end of the day. Night time activities include barbequing, fireside gatherings indoors or out, and an opportunity to visit with the horses, work out in the gym, shoot a game of pool, or swim in the moonlight.
