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.
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
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!.
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.
Our group had a great stay at this unique farm. Wonderful hosts.
I've used Homeaway several times and this residence by far is the best. The home is a great blend of a modern cabin with all the amenities you need. The animals close by are a huge plus if you have kids. Bobbie is very diligent and helpful and a great person to meet. Linens provided (great bedrooms), refrigerator full, and even a bottle of wine. Fantastic stay if you have a large family. A special experience!
SOOOO homey, comfortable and clean! A wonderful place to visit with family. My Mom is 85 and needs a walker to get around. She was able to get in and out of the house with ease and was even able to get to the pens to see the animals! Everyone old and young LOVED the animals. Ages ranged from 2 years old to 88. Bobbie and Anne are delightful. Very accommodating and with great info on the farm and the area. This is definitely our go to" house away from home" next time and every time we come to Connecticut.
