Head north for a romantic Vermont sleigh ride weekend. Join us for an iconic Vermont night at Adams Farm Saturday evening.

Most guests will arrive Friday. Abbott’s Glen will offer a casual dinner at 7:30 in the Meadow House. Following dinner one can head to the Finnish sauna, enjoy a soak in the hot tub or head over to Club Sugar Shack for a game of billiards, a few drinks & hang out with some like minded nudists.

On Saturday –

enjoy the property & it’s 55 acres. One can sled, ski, skate or snowshoe. Perhaps you will take a YOGA class with instructor Kate, at 11:00 in our newly constructed yurt.

If you are looking for local activities, then head to Jacksonville for a visit to our local winery called Honora. They have a great tasting room, along with local cheeses & meats offered. They also make a craft beer called 5342.A stone throw away, Spoonwood Cabin creamery provides some of the best cheeses found in Vermont. If you like a European style cheese, you will love their varieties.

Saturday night – DJ Lindy !

Abbott’s Glen guests will dine early so that we can be on a sleigh by 7:30. Once at Adams Farm we all load onto a large wooden sled, where you are bundled up shoulder to shoulder with a woolen blanket to put over your lap. As the horses & sleigh ascend the mountain, we will stop at intervals for the horses to catch their breathe & the sleigh drivers share stories & history of the 5th generation farm. If we are lucky the moon is out to guide our way. Listening to the jingle of the horse bells & the sleigh creaking through the snow, under a blanket of stars is magical. Our destination is a log cabin in the woods. While the horses rest, we enter a cabin lit by kerosene lamps & greeted with a hot cup of cocoa. One can warm their toes by the wood stove or try out the player piano as others sing along. Once we reload it’s a faster ride down to the main farm area.

At that point it’s back to Abbott’s Glen for dessert in the Carriage house. Dj Lindy will get Club Sugar Shack rockin with a blend of old & new music. If you feel the need to warm up, the wood fired Finnish sauna & hot tub room are waiting for you.
