About Todd & Peggy Allen

Savage Hart Farm’s owner/operators – Peggy and Todd Allen – share a vision to turn a beautiful post and beam 4-bedroom home on 32 acres into a working farm with a vacation rental apartment. We moved onto the farm in July of 2012, and only a month later we were joined by our “starter” flock consisting mostly of colored Corriedale sheep. By October, we had built a small barn and installed about 4000 feet of permanent fencing to get us through our first winter. With 25 acres of grass, the sheep have plenty of room to grow. Spring 2013 we had five lambs join our flock! And in June, the yarn from their fleece arrived!

Todd & Peggy Allen purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Todd & Peggy Allen chose Vermont

This is a quintessential Vermont setting with all the modern amenities and just minutes away from several of towns, and dozens of activities and outdoor fun.

What makes this apartment unique

You know it's special when the local folks come visit and say, 'I had no idea there was a view like this!'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful stay! We were up for a Dartmouth Reunion and loved staying in your beautiful apartment. Waking up to the view of the valley was incredible! Our girls absolutely loved your farm and have asked to go back - soon. Thank you for such lovely accommodations. Everything was as you described it, the apartment was very very clean with nice furnishings and we love that your compost and recycle! Also, thank you for the written directions as much as we live in the digital age - sometimes it is great to have written directions to refer to.

What a wonderful stay, could of stayed forever if Todd and Pegg were willing to adopt me. Stayed here while I took classes at King Arthur Flour and it was perfect. Biked, hiked the AT, visited State Parks and Woodstock. Amazing, we will be back!

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Savage Hart Farm in May. The farm is located close to many of the area's attractions, so you get the peaceful and idyllic farm setting without sacrificing convenience. Seeing the sheep was a real treat for our daughter (and for us), and the apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay.

Perfect Spot On Top Of A Hill

  • 5 of 5

A practical, pleasant, and well equipped apartment, beautifully perched atop a hill, with 360 Degrees of spectacular views into a charming Vermont landscape: A perfect spot to get away, enjoy the beauties of nature, and the peace of the Vermont country side. Todd and Peggy are wonderfully thoughtful hosts, their herd of sheep adds charm and a bit of humor to the time spent there. Marvelously located within easy reach of Norwich, Hanover and White River Junction. If you need good restaurants, they are close at hand. The ideal location for vacationers seeking natural beauty and quiet days for reenergizing oneself. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Savage Hart Farm.

Very Peaceful, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Savage Hart Farm over the 4th of July weekend. The setting is incredibly peaceful with amazing views in all directions. Todd and Peggy were very accommodating. They even gave us some fresh zucchini from their garden. We used the grill to cook dinner both nights. And then ate on the adirondack chairs watching the sheep. While remote, you are also close to Hanover, White River Junction, and Quechee. And we ran over to the Appalachian Trail for a nice trail run. Highly recommended for a relaxing vacation.

My finance and I stayed at Savage Hart Farms for almost a month!!! My daughter goes to Dartmouth and it is her senior year. I wanted a place where we could cook for her and she could study. The moment we walked in and went into the apartment we felt like we were at home. The views from all the windows are breath taking!! Would not of had the same kind of experience if we stayed at a local hotel. Todd and Peggy are simply nice people that were very accommodating. Peggy took me out into the field to feed the sheep I will never forget it!! We will be back!!!! Highly recommend!!!!
