About Guy

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.

Magical Farm Experience

  • 5 of 5

A unique experience unlike any other rental house. Outside peacocks, chickens, doves and horses provided hours of entertainment. Inside the music equipment and pool table kept us going. The house is conveniently located close to town, Macedonia Brook State Park, and Kent Falls. Wish we could have stayed forever!

The absolute best place to celebrate my bachelorette and have a blessingway ceremony with doves

  • 5 of 5

When I set off to plan my bachelorette weekend, I envisioned a farm with a variety of animals, a tipi with fire pit, beautiful home with tons to do, perfect location and nearby attractions. I quickly jumped online and found The Spirit Horse Farm. I was 150% satisfied and was able to bring my vision to life over and over while we were there. The owner Guy was attentive and helped to create with us. The horses were kind and ready to connect. The roosters started the day for us as we enjoyed farm fresh eggs and more each morning. The house was awesome with unique features and lots of space for all of us. An added bonus was the resident photographer who accompanied us to Kent Falls and other locations for photo shots...exceptional quality! Highly recommend requesting his services for your stay. To top it off we were close to a great brewery, vineyard, shopping and restaurants. The house and property offered so much that we could've just stayed there. We already planned another getaway for this summer. One last was clean! We weren't sure what to expect given it's a farm but the linens, towels, couches and all were clean. There were some resident bugs but they fit right in.

Everything we could have dreamed of

  • 5 of 5

Guy and Steph, words cannot express how grateful Kyle and I are that we found you and The Spirit Horse Farm. From the moment that we stepped foot on the property, we knew that this was the place that we wanted to be married at. Both of you were wonderful during the planning process and made it so easy to plan. Guy, I can't thank you enough for being so welcoming upon our arrival. I felt like we were meeting old friends again when we pulled up. Everyone that attended the wedding said that The Spirit Horse Farm was the most amazing place they had ever been. I wish we could redo our wedding over and over again just because we loved this place so very much. Thank you both again for everything!!!!!!

Anniversary celebration with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We had the best anniversary celebration with our family and friends. The barn was an amazing place, comfortable and cozy. Same as the pictures on the website showed. The owner was very helpful in helping me organize my gathering. Would recommend anyone for any upcoming events or just a quick getaway.

Totally Unique...Totally Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Spirit Horse Farm for two nights. How do I even explain this place? From the minute you step into the barn, you are in awe of it and of everything in it. The amazing handiwork, the open space, the incredible beauty that is Spirit Horse Farm. We had the best time. The beautiful farm setting in the beautiful area of Kent, CT. We have always loved the area with the hiking trails and Bulls Bridge and Kent Falls so it seemed a perfect place to go. It was beyond anything we could imagine. Thank you to Guy for making our stay wonderful. The many tasty treats he left us, his friendly personality and if you needed him for anything he was right there. We loved watching the chickens and roosters, the beautiful horses and the elusive peacock. Every once in a while, Guy would release the hundred or so doves and they would zoom around the huge barn we were staying in as if putting on a show. I would totally recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Great for a small intimate gathering as we had and we can see it would be amazing for a large gathering. We have booked more days in October to see the fall foliage and hope to bring more family members. The Spirit Horse Farm is everything the photos show and tons more. Thank you for providing such a slice of unique and for letting us live in a dream world for a few days. LOVE LOVE LOVE Spirit Horse Farm! This will be our destination for many more return visits.
