Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Sheffield - Mount Harmony Farm Guest House

3 Bedrms/1.5 Bathrms, Sleeps 8--nr Burke Mtn, Hill Farmstead Brewery, VAST Trail

Carriage House Sleeps 3 couples (or 2 couples & kids) very comfortably (2 king-sized beds, 2 full-sized beds, a Captain's Bed (and an inner-spring mattress cot if needed). Country privacy in Vermont's NE Kingdom. Close to nature and old-fashioned farm charm, peaceful -- a great get away. Let go, unwind, have fun, de-stress & relax, curl up in front of the wonderful warmth of the pellet stove, or knock yourself out in the great outdoors. 2-story Carriage House has Old-Fashioned Rustic Charm and Elegance. The LARGE picture window upstairs looks out onto beautiful, changing mountain views and the antics of our animals--clear nights are great for star-gazing. There's also a supplementary wood stove downstairs for an occasional fire. Upstairs has individually controlled baseboard heat in each room. Snow has already begun to get its foot in the door here & promises to out do the totals of the last two winters. Cook up a storm in the open kitchen, or check out nearby cafes-restaurants (and most especially the #1-Rated Hill Farmstead Brewery 20 minutes away). Free WiFi, cable TV & Blu-ray DVD (+Netflix access), as well as unlimited long-distance phone service to U.S. & Canada. We have games, cards, jigsaw puzzles, books, stuffed toys, crayons/art supplies, Audubon Nature Guides & a recliner. Although we have a whole-house filter, we also have a 5-gallon hot/cold water dispenser, and encourage people to bring personal (not disposable) water bottles. Ask Marc about instruction in Walking the Bagua Circle (great for stress reduction).

About 400 feet up the hill is the VAST Trail for snowmobiling (or hiking right now). Burke Mountain-Kingdom Trails and Craftsbury & the Open Center are a 1/2 hr away for world-class mtn. biking, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, events, dog sledding, dining, more. Clear skies at night are great for star gazing (check out when the meteor showers are, too). It's about the experience of Mount Harmony Farm.

Please Note: This is not a farm stay--the animals are not to be fed/petted by youngsters, as the donkeys do not always understand where carrots leave off and small fingers begin. They also are not horses (horses can be fed from open palms--but donkeys cannot). Also, do not fly a drone or aerial electronics on our property (elsewhere is fine)--the sound terrifies the animals.

Rates are for up to 4 people--additional guests are $25/person/nt (under 5 years old = free [limit of 3 freebies]--all infants are free)--single night occupancy is available at $175 for the night for 4 people.

SLEPT LIKE BABIES...: Dear Stephanie & Marc.-- We had a glorious time. We loved the downstairs great room and especially loved reading and looking at the donkeys and the mountains from the upstairs Great Room. We all slept like babies!!!!! It was such fun watching the birds and the chipmunk darting about outside. Torben loved snowshoeing on your property. -- Thanks for providing such a wonderful larder with spices, oils, rice (which I used), teas and Green Mtn Coffee, which I love. I did the cooking and they cleaned up! -- Thank you also for being the 'parents' for the rescued animals. We have friends who live in Woodstock, VT and the wife is totally committed to taking animals out of abusive homes. You are doing a great thing and your donkeys must be thankful to have you care for them. We loved hearing them 'talking' to Marc! -- Thank you so much. -- April & Torben

IT WAS LIKE COMING HOME: We read the website & write-ups, made the deal, but still didn't really know what to expect. It was like coming home to the family farm for Thanksgiving. We're not often welcomed by two mules, a gaggle of Geese, various sheep, and a pair of chipmunks. No moose though, at least not yet. Marc & Stephanie are like family. Staying here's been a treat. Raiding the vegetable garden, watching the chipmunk while reading on the deck, the view from upstairs, the 'sanctuary' across the road (all parks should be like this), the leaves turning, but not turned. Drive the byways, but better yet -- take the well-used Vermont Gazetteer and take those really skinny back roads that are red -- the dirt/gravel ones. Get lost, find your way. Go to the observatory at the top of Prospect Hill near Brownington, and look into Canada. Try them all -- they're good roads, often better than the asphalt ones. -- Pam & Les, Tyler TX

WOW!!!: Let me start off by saying WOW!!!!! You and your farm are amazing. It was so nice to meet folks who still have strong morals/values and treat animals/land with the love and respect they deserve. We really were just trying to 'get away', but you made our trip so much more than that!! And for that I THANK YOU. We would love to sit down with you two and listen to you speak so lovingly about your farm. My husband and I have had our share of many tragedies over the last few years and found it hard to get out of our pity party; in just two short days Mount Harmony provided us with the atmosphere to 'let go';. Your gratitude towards my husband's veteran status was unexpected and appreciated, I hope we did not insult you by not taking you up on your offer to stay a night 'on you'. If we didn't have [responsibilities], we would have taken you up on the offer in a heartbeat. We'll be back, but next time for a longer stay.

-- Sonya, Gary, & Friends, Massachusetts

About Stephanie Bourdelle

We are in our early 70s and we both keep our inner wonder child and creative centers alive. Much of our health is from eating the food we grow. Marc is very knowledgeable about a wide range of Daoist energy work/exercises and deep listening--Stef grounds her energies into the land, plants/growing things, photography, nature/living things.

Stephanie Bourdelle purchased this house in 2006

Why Stephanie Bourdelle chose Northeast Kingdom

Land has never had pesticides. Two dwellings -- one with a huge picture window and a view to soak up; the other house (us) is an OLD farm/barnhouse to build on the bones of. Room enough for us to be growing/expanding gradually and with care. Out in nature, yet on a paved road which is plowed regularly in winter, with a magical pristine hidden sanctuary just down the road. So much here to take in through the senses if one holds still.

What makes this house unique

Organic Guest House Garden during growing season, pure (filtered) well water (no chemicals), fresh air, plenty of ways to get exercise, or just soak up the constantly changing views from the huge picture window, unwind and de-stress. Unpolluted State forest (open Late May-Early November) with ponds (just around the corner) is near-private, and the water is pristine (fishing, swimming, hiking, & a rugged hike to a scenic outlook). Easy access to Bread & Puppet, The Hill Farmstead Brewery, and Burke Mtn./Kingdom Trails are nearby. Canadian border (& Newport, VT) is a beautiful 1/2 hr ride north. It's really healthy to be here! Many Lakes & Ponds nearby. Hardwick food co-op is about 22 minutes away and has plenty of choices in a small space. Hill Farmstead Brewery (best micro brewery in the world, Ranked #1) is 20 min. away. Dieu du Ciel Pub & Brewery in Montreal is ranked Canada's Best (they have Absinthe in one brew, and another is made with Artemisia). And our protected animals are entertaining.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We read the website write-ups, made the deal, but still didn't really know what to expect. It was -- is -- like coming home to the family farm for Thanksgiving. We're not often welcomed by two mules, a gaggle of Guinea hens -- including babies -- a goose with a wonky wing, and a pair of chipmunks (sunflower seeds are provided to give them). No moose though, at least not yet. And Marc & Stephanie are like family.



Go drive the byways, but better yet -- take the well-used Vermont Gazetteer provided and take those really skinny back roads that are red -- the dirt/gravel ones. Get lost, find your way. Go to the observatory at the top of Prospect Hill near Brownington, and look into Canada. Eat at the Mtn. View Inn on Darling Hill near E. Burke. Try them all -- they're good roads, often better than the asphalt ones.



Raiding the vegetable garden, watching the friendly chipmunk while reading on the deck, the view from upstairs, the 'state park' across the road (all parks should be like this) with the leaves turning, but not turned. Staying here's been a treat.

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone should go and visit Mark and Stephanie at least once! My wife and I stayed at the house while I enjoyed a moose hunt up north with my brother. These folks are inkeepers par-excellence.....extremely personable, genuine, customer-oriented and more than willing to do what it takes to make your stay wonderful. It felt like home as soon as we got there, and we hated to leave. They had a lot of the little things that make a home, well, home....band-aids in the bathroom and spices in the kitchen, things like that. The picture window upstairs is incredible, you can't beat the wood heat, and their critters provided hours of entertainment. We can't say enough good things about them! It was a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy quality time reading or talking, walks on the property, recharging the batteries. We also found a great maple place in nearby Glover that kept us stuffed with maple candies....Yum! We did some sightseeing around the Northeast Kingdom, and the scenery is awesome....pretty close to Crystal Lake in Barton and Lake Willoughby. Better rent your week quick.....we're going back!

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my wife and I stayed in Marc and Stephanie's beautiful guest house and just like the first time, we didn't want to leave. Not only is the house incredibly charming and cozy, and complete with everything you could ever want in a Vermont retreat, but the scenery is absolutely gorgeous and Marc and Stephanie are undoubtedly two of the nicest people you will ever meet. I always recommend this rental for anyone looking to get away and spend a loving vacation in Vermont. It truly is one of our favorite places to go and I can't say enough positive things about the guest house, the hosts, and the location.

Wonderful stay, quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The two of us had a great time staying here with our dog. Stephanie and Marc were very accommodating, giving us tips on places to visit and eat, providing maps and guides and showing us how to use the wood stove and other items in the home. We had a great view of the farm and the mountains from the master bedroom, and the house is very comfortable. It was conveniently located to the places we wanted to visit, like the Bread and Puppet theater, Dog Mountain and Museum of Everyday Life. We would definitely recommend this place for others.

Great house for our group!

  • 4 of 5

This sweet little house held 6 adults and two babies very comfortably while we were all in town for a wedding nearby. We were so pleased to find that it was just down the road from Bread and Puppet and had a really fun time walking through their museum and looking at all the puppets from their repertoire. Stephanie and Marc are both very nice, helpful, and generous too, offering us food from their garden. The view from the back of the house is gorgeous.

Natural beauty and a peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

Marc and Stephanie were wonderful and helpful hosts on their beautiful farm. It is a very quiet location perfect for nature lovers and those looking to "get away from it all". The guest home is charming with everything you need. There was coffee, butter, juice and condiments in the fridge. Great selection of tea and herbs for cooking. A nearby market had everything you needed for breakfast, lunch, and dinners at home. The beds were super comfortable and there is a great reading nook on the second floor. The huge window let you see the changing landscape from sunrise to sunset. The hosts were attentive yet gave you plenty of space. Take them up on their offer to show you the nearby ponds. We went there twice a day with our dogs to hike and swim...it really was one of the most incredible places I've seen. There is lots of hiking in the area and many choices for swimming in beautiful lakes. Bread and Puppet is right down the road and Hill Farmstead is only 15 minutes away. Parker Pie Co. is a neat place for pizza and a great selection of beer on tap. If you're looking to unwind and relax this is the perfect place.

This Guest House, with lots of character & Old World touches, located in the heart of Vermont's NE Kingdom, is 400 feet from the VAST Trail & 20 minutes from The Hill Farmstead Brewery, Rated #1 in VT, the U.S., & the World. Restaurants, cafes & ski areas are nearby (Craftsbury's Outdoor Center, Burke Mtn. & Kingdom Trails are each within easy reach). Check our website for detailed listing of the many activities nearby, directions, and more photos. Free WiFi/internet, Dish HDTV w. Blu-ray Player, pellet stove (& supplementary wood stove) downstairs, baseboard heat upstairs. Our well water is healthier than what people drink from plastic bottles, and we have a hot/cold 5-gallon water dispenser as well. This is a great place to unwind & de-stress, kick back in nature for awhile, or knock yourself out in the great outdoors. Cook up something wonderful in the kitchen, or go out to a wide variety of great eating places. In summer the great eating place is right here -- just pick fresh organic items (& herbs) from the Guest House garden (growing season starts gradually & takes off in July/August), &/or select from the many spices we supply in the Guest House and voila! Parfait! Some herbs are potted up & for sale (& some flowers, too). From the LARGE Picture Window upstairs, you can watch the antics of our farm animals, birds at our feeders, wonderful sunsets, and stars on clear nights are beautiful -- check your Apps for when the meteor showers are.

Spring Peepers fill the night air in Spring, hummingbird moths and butterflies go for the lilacs in the daytime, then hummingbirds arrive -- busiest in early morn & late eve -- they have several feeders with one at a downstairs Guest House window. Luna Moths (and other large Saturnid moths) start making their appearance (after 11 pm) around the Solstice, then fireflies. Hummers start their migrations south around mid-late September. And the SNOW this year promises to be doing a lot of catching up from last year!

Notes:
Note that we have a great Pellet Stove downstairs + baseboard heat upstairs & energy-efficient toilets. Some kids' toys/games/books, etc. 2 folding deck chairs & 4 canvas chairs for beach or outdoors, some swimming toys, a few CDs, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles, Scrabble, cards, books, and most of the Audubon Nature Guides. Washer/Dryer in farmhouse (we do the laundry for you). Plenty of parking. Beautiful near-private natural preserve in summer with 3 ponds is great for swimming/fishing/hiking/exploring, and is just around the corner from us. Swimming Pool at nearby Lyndon College may be used for a minimal per person fee. Smoking allowed only outside. In summer, there is a gas grill, and organic veggies/herbs/produce in the Rental Garden. Nearby adjoining VAST Trail access for ski-mobiling and to go exploring on. Bread & Puppet Theater is a mile away. Cable TV + Blu-ray player/Netflix, WiFi, a 5-gallon hot/cold water dispenser, phone with unlimited long-distance US & Canada
