Activities

Old Moses Farm is a peaceful, secluded rural retreat. Its 100+ acres in historic Strafford Vermont and 1840 renovated barn offer beautiful unspoilt views from every window. Charmingly decorated and fully furnished on three floors, your retreat is surrounded by fields, meadows, and woodlands with 300 year old maples. Miles of trails on the farm and in adjacent Downer State Forest allow for walking, hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, and snow shoeing.

Practice your fly-casting on our pond, stocked with Rainbow, Brown, and Brook trout. We are within walking distance of the town swimming pond. A short drive to the White and Connecticut Rivers brings you to more fishing, tubing, and kayaking.

Located in central Vermont, we are only 6.5 miles from I-89. Dartmouth College in Hanover NH is a 20 minute drive; Vermont Law School is 15 minutes; Woodstock VT is 40 minutes; Mount Ascutney is 40 minutes; Killington is 1 hour; Montpelier is 1 hour.

Or, if getting a glimpse of rural village life is more your speed, walk down into South Strafford and visit our General Store, or book a horse-drawn ride through Strafford.

And if you'd like to get out and see what makes Vermont so special, the following list provides a sampling of the diversions available just a short drive away.
