The SiloSide barn and homestead is better known around town as the "Old Somers Farm" in reference to the day when the barn housed 60 head of cows. The farm was a part of the Cabot Creamery Cooperative, and closed this era in the late 1980s. Prior to being a dairy farm consisting of over 500 acres, the property served as a tavern, inn, tannery, and has always been a traditional, well-loved farmhouse. Our farmhouse was built in 1785, and the barn built around the 1830s and expanded in 1941. The soil here is rich, and the forest full of wildlife. We've named our home "SiloSide" as tribute to the magic we feel on the non-road facing, silo-side of the barn, where you'll be camping.

Outstanding! 10/10 would come again. Gretchen was an amazing host who was able to inform us of upcoming/ current weather conditions prior to our trip and make adjustments accordingly. Truly appreciated and would love to come back during the different seasons!

The A-frame was even more beautiful in person. Then the location, wow! Peacham is probably the most beautiful vermont town i’ve been to. Would definitely stay again! Gretchen was kind, welcoming, and super helpful!

The cabin/a-frame was really just one part of the wonderful setting that provided the perfect local weekend getaway. The property is only an hour away from where I live but I couldn't have felt more removed and at peace while there. The brook is quite audible from inside your space and it set a fantastic natural soundtrack for reading, and then for falling sound asleep. The table and chairs situated near the large windows is perfect for enjoying your morning beverage of choice, along with some muffins if you add that to your stay. (And they are delicious) There are essential cooking supplies and a radio that works especially well when you prop a metal utensil against the antenna nub! Cute bistro/cafe string lights give this space a really lovely and cozy glow. I can't say enough, I loved being here and it was a perfect step between camping and air bnb. I will definitely make an effort to return in a different season to see the changes of the lush, picturesque farm and landscape. <3
