East View Farm

History

image5

Built in 1810 by two brothers, John and Herchel Davis, for John and his bride, Betsy, our brick Federal farmhouse was once an inn and tavern on the stage road from Brockways Mills to Springfield. Many a dusty, weary traveller has sought rest under its slate roof. Known as the Davis-Adams-Clark house, it is listed in the Historic Homes of Springfield, Vermont, and was for many years a sheep farm. 


In those days, central heating had not yet been invented, so each of the living rooms, parlors, and bedrooms is graced by a soapstone-lined fireplace, and the two front upstairs bedrooms are outfitted with floor grates that allowed the warmed air to rise up from the rooms below. The living room fireplace still possesses its original forged iron hardware - the long, hooked pot-holding arm is still in working order - revealing its past life as a kitchen hearth.

Get away from it all in our cozy, rustic cabin at the top of the hill. Spectacular views and solitude await you in this off-grid cabin with solar powered lights and an old-fashioned outdoor privy.
