We are Wayward Goose Farm (visit on instagram) and we have a spacious & comfy studio apartment overlooking the activity on our working Vermont dairy farm waiting just for you. Visit the barn during milking, relax with an album on the record player, or take a walk on the rail trail right out back! Now teaming with Red Clover Ale Co. (check them out on insta too!) in Brandon, VT, we'll provide a voucher with each booking good for a complimentary pour in their new brewery/tap room!

De ruimte
Come spend time in southwestern Vermont! We live on a beautiful dairy farm and we love to welcome guests to our home. We have a newly carpeted, finished studio apartment above our attached 3 car garage waiting just for you! It is furnished with a comfy new queen sized bed and 2 new twin sized beds.

A recently installed kitchenette, with a two burner cook top and small fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee amenities, and staples (spices, oils, condiments, and an assortment of basic nonperishables) enables you to prepare simple meals. Choose to dine inside at the vintage table or make it al fresco and take your meal out to the patio when the weather permits. We are happy to stock your fridge with a complimentary jar of our own fresh, raw milk, upon request. We also stock local fresh pastured eggs in our self serve store which you are welcome to purchase.

A full bath with stall shower is spacious, well appointed, and clean. Wireless internet is available but we suggest you relax with some good old board games. We've recently added a full sized ping pong table in the heated garage, just outside the apartment door..... lots of fun on rainy days or when it's too cold to brave the winter outdoors. Little ones will have fun swinging and sliding on the newly built wooden play set in the yard, in full view from the east apartment windows. We are kid friendly! Guests have a private entrance but are welcome to enjoy our lovely backyard patio and porch.

If you have ever wanted to experience life on a dairy farm, this is the place for you! Guests can watch the milking chores in the morning or sleep in and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Either way, you are sure to be charmed by your surroundings. We milk 25 registered Jersey cows twice a day, every day, and sell their rich creamy milk raw here on the farm. We have a little, self-serve farm store on sight from which you can also view our morning or evening milkings. Our fresh, raw milk, grass fed beef and free range chicken, local maple syrup, and local pastured eggs are available year round.

If you are a fan of micro brews you'll know that Vermont is home to the most craft breweries per capita of any state in the U.S. We are proud to team with one of VT's newest, and, in our opinion, best brew pubs, Red Clover Ale co. in Brandon and we're happy to provide a voucher for 1 complimentary pour per booking. A scenic hour's drive north, Red Clover Ale co.'s tap room is situated right over the Neshobe River in downtown Brandon and the beers are fast becoming known among craft beer connoisseurs as some of Vermont's finest. How do we know? Because their brewer Pete is our son and one of the 3 owners is our son in law Andy! Stop in with your voucher and prepare yourself for a tasting experience you won't forget! In January they were chosen one of the top 10 new breweries of 2019 in the country by @hopculturemag!

Our farm's surrounding area holds plenty of opportunity for adventure. The D&H Rail Trail runs literally through our backyard and is a perfect venue for birders and hikers alike. It is 22.3 miles long and is very popular among bicyclists, cross country skiers, horseback riders, walkers and joggers. Bring your binoculars, because we've spotted everything from bald eagles to scarlet tanagers on the trail, not to mention snapping turtles! Nature lovers can also partake of nearby Merck Forest, Haystack Mountain, and the Hebron Nature Preserve. Plan a winter vacation and, if there's snow, we have an assortment of sleds and tubes you are welcome to use on the hill behind the house. Or bring your cross country skis and take them out on the rail trail out back, which is groomed by a local snowmobile club! We'll start a fire in the fire pit for you and we even stock the apartment with gourmet hot chocolate mix which you can use to make the world's best cocoa, providing you use our milk of course! In addition, we are a mere 39 minutes from Bromley mountain ski resort if you decide to have an off farm winter adventure! Message ahead of your visit and we'll try to give you up to date sledding and rail trail skiing conditions.

Manchester, a mere 25 minutes away, is a very popular destination, home to numerous designer outlets, the Orvis fly fishing school and store, and the best book store in Vermont, the Northshire Bookstore. Weston, sight of the Vermont Country Store, is about an hour's drive away through some gorgeous mountain scenery. Glens Falls, and Lake George, NY are about 45 minutes and an hour away, respectively, to the west, while Saratoga Springs is just under an hour. The delightful Lake St. Catherine state park in Wells is about 15 minutes away and Emerald Lake state park in Dorset is nearby as well. World class fly fishing abounds in the Battenkill River and the Mettowee River. Burlington and all its enchantments is just under 2 hours north and the drive through Addison County, with the Adirondacks to the west across Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains to the east is absolutely breathtaking! There are great farmers markets in nearby towns as well as unique shops, eating establishments and brew pubs throughout this beautiful state.

There are too many attractions to do justice to here and we are centrally located to many nearby cities from Albany, to Saratoga, to Rutland and Bennington. Since it's only an hour away, we are frequent visitors to Williamstown, MA and its treasure, The Clark Art Institute and Mass MoCa is just a short hop away in Adams.



A state of the art whole-house water filtration system supplies the apartment with our fresh, clean well water so there's no need for purchased water in plastic bottles. This, along with our choice to primarily use environmentally friendly cleaning supplies, line dry our laundry when weather permits, etc. is part of our entire farm's commitment to sustainability.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hosting you.

We do not discriminate and happily welcome all genders, ethnicities, colors, shapes, sizes, astrological signs, planetary affiliations, musical tastes, etc!

Toegang voor gasten
In warm weather guests can enjoy a large back porch and pergola with comfy outdoor furniture to enjoy the relaxing view. In cold weather guests usually opt to stay in and enjoy the warmth of the cozy apartment which is equipped with a record player and an array of vintage albums. Lots of board games, books and, of course, wi-fi. The D&H rail trail runs through our property, just behind the house and is wonderful year round for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc. There is easy access to the 22 mile trail and folks are welcome to bring their bikes and park them in our garage during their stay.

Since this IS a working farm and the way in which we earn our living, we ask guests to understand that only certain areas of the farm, fields, and barn are accessible to them. We try to remember to let guests know where they are able to roam upon their welcome and are happy to answer any questions they may have during their stay. When in doubt, please ask!

West Pawlet, Vermont, Verenigde Staten

Ours is a quintessential rural Vermont neighborhood... our nearest neighbors are at Consider Bardwell Farm, whose silos are visible from our yard. It's an easy and enjoyable walk down the road, along the rail trail or even through our pasture. Once there you can take a tour or sample some of their award winning cheese. The road on which we are situated is very popular with bicyclists, joggers and walkers alike in good weather and the scenery is delightful all year round!

We are Dan and Laurie Brooks, dairy farmers,( married 36 yrs.), and our 22 yr. old daughter. We have 3 older children, all college grads, and 3 grandchildren. Dan has been a dairy farmer all his life as well as an avid outdoorsman whose interests range from forestry of native trees, to fishing, to foraging for wild mushrooms, to birding. I (Laurie) am an artist who works primarily in watercolors, graphite, charcoal and linoleum prints. Jill is a pretty mellow college junior, currently majoring in geography at UVM and who is spending this semester in Morocco. We also have 1 dog, Paul (a corgi mix) who is not allowed at the barn due to a fondness for cow manure, and a barn cat, Lulu, whose domain is the haymow and milking parlor, though she is free to come and go as she pleases. We enjoy hosting visitors and getting to know folks from all walks of life. We have hosted guests from China, Thailand, Scotland, England, The Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Austria, Israel, India, Australia, Germany, Canada, and from all over the U.S. too. We love hearing people's stories and telling our own. We consider ourselves lucky to have been able to meet so many interesting and amazing people. In addition to being Airbnb hosts ourselves, we have used it as travelers too. We have visited Montreal, CA, Monschau, Germany, Pontarlier, France and Fourbanne, France as well as locations in this country. We have had wonderful experiences in every place we've stayed and our hosts have been fantastic. We hope to use it again as travelers soon!

Tijdens je verblijf
We let the guests determine that... some guests like their privacy and we respect that. Others like to interact with us by dropping by the barn during milking, or chatting on the back porch in the evening.
