The stately sugar maples that tower over this center hall Colonial most certainly were planted by one of the early owners of this pastoral farmstead and no doubt have given up more than a few gallons of maple syrup "back in the day." It is no wonder this spot was chosen by the original settler with the open southern exposure and over 1200' of access on Otter Creek. True to the nature of this area of Vt, the river flows north to Rutland and eventually Lake Champlain and was no doubt used as a form of transportation to and from Wallingford's town center and north to Rutland. Today it provides respite from the heat on hot sultry summer days, long hours of lazy fishing and exploring by canoe or kayak. The farmstead outbuildings are as stout and solid as they day they were constructed and have been re-purposed for many uses. With a fully self-contained, charming one bedroom guest house this vintage farmstead offers all the modern conveniences for the extended family.
