Now the new home of Green Mtn. Falconry! Once the country estate and studio of famed painter and fly fishing enthusiast Ogden Pleissner, Boorn Brook Farm has been restored to its original splendor. Situated on 54 acres of open meadows and old apple orchards with stunning views, Boorn Brook Farm is protected by Lye Brook National Forest, yet within the town limits of Manchester Center.
The French inspired barn, built in 1820 has wide-plank floors, hand-hewn beams, soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces and New England charm. Perfect for a romantic getaway, a country vacation for a small family or a quiet retreat to nature, Boorn Brook Farm is the quintessential Vermont experience!
In the summer, take falconry lessons on site, swim in the spring-fed pond with a beach, play tennis on the private court, hike on the private trails or in the bordering Lye Brook Wilderness, fish in the brook, or simply relax in one of the hammocks. In the winter, skate on the pond, sled on the hill, snowshoe or cross country ski on the back trails, downhill ski or snowboard at nearby Stratton or Bromley Mountains. Return home to build a roaring fire in the stone fireplace, bake some bread in the stone bread oven, play a game of pool, sip some hot chocolate and then watch the sun set behind Equinox Mountain from the hot tub, right outside your master bedroom!
Children and adults alike will also enjoy our farm pets, old Ender the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and our new adorable goats, Pan and Axle!
I own the local movie theatre, so your movies are free when you stay on the farm!
Shelly purchased this barn in 1999
Because once you get here, you won't want to leave! I wrote down our fantasy list of features I wanted in a property and was stunned to find it all! I wanted a white house with a porch, a red barn, mountain views, meadows, a pond, a brook, sledding hill, stone walls, hiking trails, close to skiing...and all of it in town! Living here is like living in a postcard!
Boorn Brook Farm is very secluded, yet right in Manchester. This is also my home. I cater to couples and small families. No large groups - don't even ask! I strive to provide a relaxing, peaceful and homey retreat for all of my guests!

Absolutely stunning property! Gayle was lovely and greeted us upon arrival. The barn is gorgeous and immaculately clean and very well appointed. A welcoming basket of local goodies awaited us in the farm kitchen including the most delicious honey from Boorn Brook farm apiary! Our children loved the sledding on the hill, the animals and the walks for our dog who befriended, Ender. We skied nearby in Bromley and enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub in the evening under the stars and snow falling. We played games in front of the fire and we all were very thankful for the family time we spent in such a magical place.
Our stay was wonderful. Beautiful views and comfortable accommodations.
We loved sharing our stay with some of the farm animals too!
It was magical. We hope to return again next winter season.
Great place, lots of space. The different animals and the pool table are a nice benefit. The only compliant came from my teenage daughter that there wasn't a door on the upstairs bedroom but she would still go back.
Our family with two kids had a wonderful visit this weekend. Your farm is gorgeous and the picture of VT living. Thank you so much for hosting us and for creating a magical environment that you are willing to share with visitors such as ourselves.
Shelly, we had at great stay at the farm. The accommodations and welcoming committee (Lola/Pan/Axel) were excellent. We look forward to a future stay. I had read a prior review about noting possible improvements and the only thing I could think of was maybe improving the loft bedroom so a second couple would have a nice comfortable bed. Thanks again, Jim and Jody.
Great house and fantastic host! We loved it; our kids loved it; our dog loved it. Definitely want to come back. Thanks very much for allowing us to stay in your house.
