About Us

Our goal is to make the joy of slowing down and connecting accessible to all. Much of our free time is spent with our hands in the dirt. We raise a diverse variety of animals and produce to provide for ourselves and our community. We have a variety of goods available throughout the year - so please let us know if you would be interested in our eggs, garlic, squash, or meats to enjoy here or take home! Learn more about us at quarrybrook.com and follow-us at QuarryBrookVT on Instagram.

We have two wonderful dogs, Bodhi and Chaco. You might also see one of our three cats roaming around during your stay. All of our fur-friends are friendly, sociable, and very loving.

What’s Nearby

There's a million reasons we've chosen this area to call home. Spend your time just being, or explore the many farms, restaurants, galleries, shops, and activities Southern Vermont has to offer.

We’re located 5 miles from downtown Putney where you’ll find Next Stage Arts, Yellow Barn International Music Center, and the Sandglass Theater. We also have a great food co-op, general store, and a few restaurants.

If you’re looking for a hike with a great view, it’s absolutely worth checking out Putney Mountain and The Pinnacle. Easily hiked in a couple of hours or less.

We’re 17 miles from Brattleboro - where you’ll find a larger variety of restaurants and local shops. We’re also blessed with a year-round farmers market - which is not to be missed!

We’re passionate about good quality food and supporting our local farmers and businesses. We would love the opportunity to recommend some of our favorite spots.  

The Dome

When you arrive, you'll drive part-way up our forested driveway, and see a sign for the pull-off to park your car. The dome is a short 1/8 mi hike in. Wagon provided so you can carry all your gear in on one trip - and settle right in!

The dome is built on top of a platform and fully furnished with a queen size bed and linens. The wood stove will keep you toasty on a chilly Vermont evening. Cozy up next to the fire pit while soaking in the stars. Firewood provided. Cell phone reception is reliable. For a little more light during winter nights, we've added electricity.

The private picnic area includes a wash station with basic cooking gear (e.g., propane cooking stove, french press, plates, silverware, pan). We will provide potable water.

We have an outhouse with a dry sawdust composting bucket arrangement. Clear instructions will be provided upon your arrival.

The dome is insulated, and available for hardy souls looking for winter camping options, snowshoeing, skiing, etc.

Trash must be left in designated receptacles.

The Geodesic Dome at Quarry Brook was an awesome hipcamp experience. All the amenities made our trip worry-free. The fire pit had grill grates which made cooking proteins that much better, and there was ample firewood, as well as drinking water, at the ready. The cart for getting our gear to and from the site was also a thoughtful addition. 10/10 recommend :)

We LOVED this site! The dome is much bigger than I expected, and it’s clear so much thought went into everything. There’s a nice little entry that serves as a little mudroom, there’s bug spray, water, cooking supplies, kindling, firewood, etc. The outhouse is only a hop from the dome, and the surrounding area feels so cozy. Cell phone reception was great, even though it seemed so secluded. The hosts were incredibly nice and responsive. We can’t wait to go back!

I’m in Love. We only had one night to stay because of a storm. Looking forward to coming back in the fall. Very well hosted. You can tell the owners care.

We had such a lovely getaway here! The dome is so clean, simple, and spacious, and Tara and Nick provided everything you could need. It was really refreshing to hop into the quarry on our way back from a hike too.

Tara and her husband were amazing hosts. The Dome was beautiful and comfortable and the quarry was a great spot for swimming.

The only thing that we were not expecting was how buggy was going to be, with mosquitos that were relentless despite using off, and anti-mosquito lamps and candles.

I would recommend this place to a friend for the fall or a month with less heat / mosquitos.

What a treat to stay at the dome at Quarry Brook! My wife and I (and our dog) had been looking forward to a peaceful escape, and this place delivered big-time. So much to love about the environment, but a huge highlight was waking to birds and sunrise in the ultra-comfy bed. We hope to return in the winter and make use of the wood stove! 5 stars—amazing place, and Tara was super responsive!

Perfect escape - having the morning to ourselves to swim in the quarry was magical! Wonderfully set up to cook dinner and spend the evening by the campfire.
