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

Quaint and still close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and the hosts were very generous. And farm fresh eggs in the fridge - what a treat! Our young daughter got a kick out of seeing the animals (pigs and sheep) every day. We said hello to them every morning and evening. Great place to relax, and yet very close to everything.

Quiet, clean, spacious. Plus you get to see farm animals!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice for a large family, with plenty of space to get together. The place was clean and well equipped. There are lots of children's toys and games in the living room cabinet. One highlight of the stay was seeing the 3 baby pigs and the baby lamb, each of which had been born in the past week. The hosts were available when needed and also gave us privacy. I would highly recommend this home.

Great Weekend on the Farm!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We were two families traveling from NY and Boston, we found a place to meet in the middle at Moose Lodge. We had 4 children between us, ranging from 1-6, each one of them had a great time! The house is big enough to maintain your space and the Kitchen/Playroom is far enough away to still enjoy the house after the kids went to bed. It was clean and well stocked. The one thing we didn't realize until we were there was that there really are no TV's, this wasn't a problem for us at all it just seemed like it should be noted. There was one that could be hooked up to a firestick I think but I'm not really sure, ask Bobbie if you're interested in booking.

Bobbie and Anne couldn't have been friendlier, the kids LOVED feeding the animals and started jumping and screaming when they would show up...however they were not intrusive at all! If we didn't ask them to text us when they came we would have had no idea that they were there. We plan to head back next summer to snuggle some new baby sheep!

Owner's Response: Hi Dana, I am so glad your kids had a fantastic time. We thoroughly enjoyed their enthusiasm! It's not every day that people jump up and down because they are so excited to see us. It made us feel like rock stars (okay- I realize it had more to do with the animals than us, but still...) I am sorry the cable tv wasn't working during your visit. I didn't realize there was a problem with the line until I read your review! We called the cable company and it should be repaired today. My apologies for the oversight and I am very glad it didn't affect your stay. See you in the Spring! Bobbie

The home was so warm and inviting. In addition to the beauty of the place, it was highly functional.

  • 5 of 5

The owner didn't miss a detail. As a result, we could relax and truly enjoy our stay. They should serve as role models for other places.
