Moose Lodge At Clatter Ridge Farm

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,600 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

A very small farm nestled in the middle of everywhere. Private and peaceful, but located minutes from award winning dining, music, arts, theater and poetry. Only 2 hours from New York and Boston, Farmington has the best of everything.

We live in a separate house on the property. We have pigs in the forest and sheep in the fields.

We stop by twice a day to take care of the animals and guests can tag along to do "chores " if they wish.

About Bobbie Emery

This land has been in my family for over 100 years, and I am hoping to keep it undeveloped for 100 more. Keeping livestock on the property and renting out the house is all part of trying to get the land to "earn it's keep". I was incredibly lucky to grow up here, and I enjoy sharing this special place with others.

Bobbie Emery purchased this house in 2011

Beautiful roomy house in the country yet close to everything.Perfect for large families.

  • 5 of 5

We came to the area from Florida for a family wedding with our grown kids and grandkids aged 8 months to 7 years old. We wanted a house we could spread out in and have a gathering spot for out of town guests to hang out since it's rare for everyone to get together at the same time. It was perfect! It was out in the country with room for the kids to run around outside but close to everything. It was impeccably clean and had everything we needed including a pack n play and booster seat for the baby. The beds were comfy and there were plenty of towels for everyone. The kids (and adults) loved the pigs, sheep and chickens and were allowed to feed them when Bobbie and Anne came by twice a day. They also gave us several suggestions for restaurants and things to do in the area.

All in all it exceeded our expectations and I would recommend this place to anyone. There is nothing I would change and we hated to leave. We have rented several houses before when we went on vacation and this was the best one by far.

Wonderful weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here while visiting Hartford for my son's college graduation. I wanted a place where we could relax together and be close to graduation events. This home was perfect. It's comfortable, peaceful and very well appointed. Watching the farm animals on the premises was a bonus.....one of the pigs gave birth to her piglets the morning we left! Bobbie was helpful and responsive when we had questions. I wish I had more reasons to travel to Hartford so I could stay here again!

Excellent home and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Clatter Ridge farm. Bobbie and Ann showed us all around the farm and spent a lot of time with us. They shared all the great things they do on the farm like sheering the sheep, taping the tress for maple syrup, supplying pork and lamb to local caterers, and so much more! The kitchen was well stocked and the game room was all set up for a game night! We filled up all the rooms and had plenty of space for three families. Thank you for a wonderful experience!.

Couldn't have been any better!

  • 5 of 5

My family converged on West Hartford to celebrate a surprise 60th birthday party. Ages ranged rom 25-84. We travelled from Seattle, Vermont, Florida, DC, NY, Conn and MA. We were so lucky to have found Moose Lodge.

The surprise party at a local restuarant only lasted 4 hours, and we needed a venue to hang out for the rest of the weekend. So glad we didn't choose a hotel, which we had considered. Moose Lodge was perfect for us. It was such a special family time. I am so grateful we were here. So many wonderful memories.

The house is spotless, huge, organized and so tastefully decorated. There is room to spread out, to all be together or go into another room for a book or a conversation. There were so many special touches. Board games waiting on the game table, fluffy towels, stocked bathroom and kitchen. A complimentary bottle of wine. It was so nice to open the refrigerator and see farm fresh eggs, coffee, milk, a coffee cake..the list goes on and on. So unexpected and so welcoming!

But perhaps the best part of this perfect getaway is that for these two days, we felt like this was our home. Bobbi and Anne were there to make sure we settled in, and were there to answer our questions as they arose about the surroundings and the house. But they also weren't intrusive at all.

It was a perfect experience. From the moment I first connected to Bobbi, so impressed with how quickly she would get back to me, to our final goodbye.

Perhaps the best review is to let everyone know we can't wait to be back again, to enjoy the home and the opportunity it will continue to give my family to all be together.

Thank you to Bobbi and Anne for making it so effortless and welcoming.
