High Acres Farm offers one of the most magical and restorative environments in New England — an atmosphere of peace and possibility, where guests can enjoy each other’s company in the presence of nature.

The historic Main House at High Acres Farm was built in 1952 and completely restored and modernized in 2017. It is now a beautiful contemporary gathering place, featuring eight private bedroom suites, a state-of-the-art farmhouse kitchen, a yoga loft, play spaces for kids, and elegant common areas filled with old family heirlooms that have traveled through our family for generations.

Our 176-acre estate is perched along the eastern shores of Lake Champlain, looking out across the water at the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The landscape is a mix of gardens, fields, forests, streams, a pond, and a private beach. A network of informal walking trails provides easy access to different parts of the land.

The historic Main House has eight private bedrooms (two on the first floor, six on the second), seven of which have their own attached bathrooms (the eighth bedroom's bathroom is just outside its door). The beautiful farmhouse kitchen has a large island, an eight-burner stove, a double oven, and a pantry with a second fridge.

The downstairs floor plan is open and flowing, leading into an elegant living room with a fireplace and a wood stove, comfy sofas and chairs, and a majestic ten-foot farmhouse table, which can easily sit ten or more people for festive family meals.

Other common spaces in the house include a bright sun porch, which is wonderful in the summer when the wind blows off the lake, a library with a TV and full cable service, a formal entry hall with a Steinway grand piano and a spiral staircase, an informal mudroom, and two water closets, one of which is ADA compliant.

The house is outfitted with central air conditioning (if the breeze off the lake in the summer does not cool you down enough), and high-speed wireless internet throughout.

One of the bedrooms on the first floor is ADA compliant, in case there is someone in your group who needs a little more space — its doors are wider and its bathroom is equipped with grab bars.

The basement is mostly finished, and includes a laundry room with two washers and dryers, and a game-room with ping-pong, air hockey, a piano, a second TV, a rowing machine, and a treadmill.

The attic provides a flexible space for a wide variety of activities, ranging from yoga and movement, to kids' dance parties, to sleepovers. Rooms can be arranged with cribs prior to arrival if there are any babies in your party, and the house also has a high chair and a pack 'n play if needed.

Outdoor amenities include a barbecue porch and an outdoor sink, a large stone patio with ample seating for outdoor gatherings, an in-ground pool with a surrounding fence for child safety, a tennis court, and the lovingly named "moo-mobile", the golf cart painted like a Holstein cow, which guests are welcome to use.

Paths are mowed through the fields for walking, and several of the hills on the property are perfect for admiring the view of the Adirondack mountains and the lake.

The boathouse at the private beach contains two stand up paddle-boards, two kayaks, and beach chairs for relaxing, as well as a second grill for barbecues. The dock extends 90 feet out into the lake, and a private mooring is located in the sheltered bay if you have a boat for additional water activities. Corn hole is a common sight in the evenings while enjoying drinks on the terrace, and is provided along with a croquet set to enjoy.

The house comes with basic cooking supplies such as oil and vinegar, flour, sugar, etc... The kitchen can also be stocked beforehand with groceries if you would like to arrive without errands to run. The property manager is happy to also discuss additional services available in the community.

There is a caretaker living on the property and the property manager lives right next door, should any concerns arise during your stay.

Please feel free to get in touch with any other questions. We look forward to welcoming you to what we think is one of the most beautiful and special places in New England!
