Enjoy the "East Wing" of our unique 1830 farm house: upstairs bedroom with king size bed & downstairs den with sofa bed, private bathroom, & dining area. Enjoy access to our country kitchen, deck, & porch at our Healing Retreat, (URL HIDDEN)

The space

Our 1830's farm house was previously owned by a fabulous artist that did mosaic tile design. You will notice the colorful back splash in our kitchen has red winged black birds on reeds, a common site looking out from the deck! The East wing has a new but quaint feel, recently restored with all new rooms.

Guest access

Our guests may stroll through all of our all organic fields, meadows , and gardens, picking flower bouquets and edible herbs or adding some fresh bio-dynamic produce to meals. For more spiritual retreats we have available meditation gardens and special contemplative trails, and are next door to Shaw Mtn Reserve, a secluded eco-preserve with hiking.

Interaction with guests

In residence and offsite support is available.
Holistic health services on site, by prior appointment.
Personalized Yoga, Tai-chi, Qigong, and Meditation classes available.

Other things to note

Our friendly kitty Ebony does not enter the guest spaces. She does patrol the kitchen briefly both morning and evening.

An unexpectedly beautiful and unique weekend trip! The pictures don't do the farmhouse justice. 10/10 would recommend. Old King Farm is also a "healing retreat," with an organic biodynamic greenhouse, a little wooden house ideal for meditation/mindfulness, and Dr. Orest's fully equipt patient room. Dr. Orest is a licensed practitioner in Chinese and holistic medicine and was at a conference in Germany for most of our stay, but we got the pleasure to meet him a few hours before we left. He invited us to join him for his daily meditation routine, which was such a pleasant experience. He also recommended us a few nearby tourist attractions and restaurant picks as well as other upcoming local events, as this was our first time in Vermont. James, the farmhouse caretaker and our host, was so so welcoming and personable. From touring us through the nooks and corners of the house (and there are many) to accommodating our dinner with fresh farm to table veggies from their biodynamic greenhouse, from late night dune buggy rides to the unique fire pit experience (hi Dom and Justin!), James went above and beyond all of our host standards to make this experience that much more special. Old King Farm is perfect for those looking for a new, personalized, unconventional getaway experience outside of the traditional B&Bs. The general area is very secluded, with sparse civilization outside of the farm for at least a few miles. This makes wifi spotty and service almost nonexistent, so be prepared for that. For myself and three friends living in NYC, the break from technology was refreshing. There were also many flies/critters inside and out of the house, which we were expecting on a farm. Personable hosts, generous accommodations, and a beautiful space are what makes this airbnb stand out. Thanks so much Dr. O and the people at Old King Farm for an unforgettable weekend!

Great view of the hills from the house. Huge domain. Nice house. They also have some historical barns and planning to build a new library for the thousands of spiritual materials they already have. This place has the potential to be a great spiritual retreat for many generations to come. James is the shaman resident. He can live in the house but he actually prefers to live in a nice tent on the property. James is taking good care of the property and the tourists. He was very nice and offered us fresh veggies from the garden upon our arrival. As the Airbnb webpage says, the breakfast is not included, still James gave us a couple of fresh tomatoes in the morning to have them with us on the long drive home. Thanks, James. Dr. Orest and his good friend Yuri arrived at around 10 PM from New York. They joined James and I around the fire outside and we shared stories and discussed spiritual subjects until 1 in the morning. James performed a shaman ritual at the end. Great memories. Looking forward to keep in touch. Next morning we left in a hurry because we had a long way to go that day to reach our home in Canada. In our hurry we forgot some clothes behind. I contacted James and he offered himself to mail us our belongings. Thanks again, James, and sorry for the troubles…

The house is easy to find and exactly like the photos! The grounds were lovely. Dr. Orest was not there during our stay so we were hosted by James, the writer/groundskeeper who lives next to the yoga loft and library structure (amazing space!) in a tent. He gave us a tour of the house and the greenhouse when we arrived. We had asked about nearby swimming and James joined us at Sunset Lake which was a 10 minute drive from the farm. The lake has amazing water and was great for swimming. There is no real beach area so inflatables are perfect. James also offered to start a bonfire and shoot guns with us. We had really looked forward to some peace and quiet, so we declined. One of the best unexpected features: the 2 outdoor showers!! Definitely try them!

James, the care taker of this property, is the most friendly person I've ever met. The place was tidy & as depicted. James & rest of the farm crew made us feel like home, one of the best AirBnB stay ever. Highly recommend Old King Farm, if you are looking for a peaceful get away.

Hello, my wife and I are all about holistic health, natural and sustainable living. I am a licensed acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Susan is a Clinical Aromatherapist. Visit HealAndRenew!

We are the stewards of the property you are exploring, some very special land in the rolling hills of Vermont, called Old King Farm. We bought the 102 acres with a 1830's farm house and nine antique barns to build a healing & retreat center for many to enjoy! Check out OldKingFarm!

We have an amazing, reliable and wise friend named James who lives on the farm to watch over the property. He spends his time writing books on healing and Shamanism. He will be your host at the farm house.
