The Space

Everything you find in our home is available for use during your stay. We have a fully equipped kitchen with a soft pantry, offering basics from seltzer and coffee to soup and shiracha. Linens and towels for bathing are also provided. As a special thank you for choosing BBVF, you’ll find one half dozen of our farm fresh eggs in the fridge. We have made countless, priceless memories over the years at our farm, and we hope that you do the same.

Guest Access

Available for your use are five bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a dining room, sitting room, family room with cable TV, kitchen and gorgeous sunroom. There is wifi at the house, as well as a selection of DVDs. The house itself sits on 4.6 acres – lots of room for outdoor games like badminton, horse shoes, croquet, soccer or volleyball, all of which is provided. The beautiful backyard features a deck with spa Jacuzzi and lounge seating area, stone patio with umbrella, table, and chairs; large outdoor dining area, gas grill and fire pit. Steps away you’ll find our new, 18x36’ in-ground, salt water and heated swimming pool with a 3-foot shallow end and 6-foot deep end.

Interaction with Guests

As we are a working farm, our farm managers will be around the property to daily, however they enter and exit through a separate driveway and don’t go near the house and backyard. They will greet you upon arrival to give you a tour of the house, and be available should you have issues, but otherwise you’ll have the place to yourself. If you would like a tour of the farm, would like to pet or feed our goats and bunnies, or collect your own farm fresh eggs to enjoy during your stay or take home with you, they would be pleased to schedule that with you.

The Neighborhood

The charming revolutionary war town of Salem, just a short walk or drive from our farm, boasts delicious restaurants and unique shops to explore. Visit the town library or community center, which is built in the newly renovated and historic county jail, for various activities and events. During the summer season, the impressive Ft Salem Theater offers a variety of plays and musicals featuring talent from all over the country.

Getting Around

A car is required for getting around, and four-wheel drive is essential in the winter. However, there are taxi and limo services for hire to take you to/from nearby towns if you are planning day drips and prefer not to drive.

Other Things to Note

This house is a perfect getaway for those looking to escape busy City life and relax. Take day excursions to Manchester, VT, Lake George or Saratoga, NY. Whether you’re betting at the Saratoga Race Track, shopping, golfing, taking a wine tour, visiting a spa or hitting the slopes, you can always come back to our farm to relax by a roaring fire. Weekend concerts in the summer at Saratoga Performing Arts Center vary from Dave Matthews Band to the Philharmonic. Everything is less than an hour drive from our gorgeous 180-acre oasis, which is perfect for families, company retreats, getaways with friends and bachelorette/bachelor parties.
