In a secluded, hand-crafted off the grid cabin, come and enjoy the elements with us at Drift Farmstead. A 3-minute walk leads you through gardens and pasture, to Ravenwood, a small, intimate cabin with everything you need. Be it an extended weekend tucked in seclusion, amongst the birds, river and trees, or find the comforts of a 37 acre small farm nestled in the mountains and settle in, working from afar. Top shelf skiing at Sugarbush is near, along with Vermont's finest grub and beer.
房源空間 Welcome to Ravenwood!
This cabin steps one away from the busy life, and into the fern laden forest. Allow the trees, birds, whispering wind, and rain song to drift you into a quiet and calm space.
In October 2011, Josh and Misse stepped onto this land, where the origin of the Dog River watershed, meets the Eastern slope of the Northfield Mountain Range. Josh converted the barn into his Shop/Studio and Showroom, where he builds frames from re-claimed wood for his film, Fine Art Photography and other artists across the country. He sells his work throughout the nation at Fine Art Festivals and Galleries. See his website, www.joshaxelrod.com for his latest. Josh grew up on a dairy farm in PA, where his grandmother hosted many people from around the world, on her farm Bed & Breakfast. Misse has a long history of hospitality, a love affair with growing and cooking food, and for educating all ages. See Misse’s website, www.driftfarmsteadvt.com. Our combined passions for travel to off the beaten path lands, inspired us to share our day-to-day adventure here at Drift Farmstead, with guests from all around.
In 2015 Josh harvested trees from the land and milled piles and piles of lumber for this cabin (as well as many other projects around the farm). In 2020 Josh first broke ground for Ravenwood. He utilized a water source from a near-by spring and began to build the cabin. Every piece of wood, every nail, was carefully planned and created with intention. As the cabin slowly was built, the spirits of the forest entered the space.
We are psyched to have you join us at Drift Farmstead!
Nestled in the mountains on the eastern side of the Northfield range, my wife Misse, sons, Haven and Rowan, and I, live on 'Drift Farmstead', a small sustainable farm outside of Roxbury, Vermont. Over the years, I have converted the barn into my Studio and Gallery and welcome you to explore the space and farm. Misse grows food for 20 families, in green houses and plots of earth beyond. Contact Josh or Misse for a current list of available eggs, meat & veggies for your stay!! We can also email you an order form.
The Confluence Trail on our property loops just below the cabin down to the Dog River. The trail from the cabin and back is just about ¾ mile. Explore, but leave no trace.
If you'd like to venture off property, the options are endless... Hiking, biking, paddling, skiing and exploring options are available in any direction. Sugarbush and Mad River Ski Areas are only 25 minute drives, for some prime skiing or snowboarding. Blueberry Lake and Warren Falls offer exceptional summer refreshment. Lincoln Peak, Hunger Mountain and Sunset Rocks are some of my near to us favorite hikes. Good Measure Brewing, Bent Hill and Lawson's are great first brewery stops, or just stop into Randy's at Roxbury General Store or the East Warren Store, to stock up on regional cans or wine and head back to the cabin. We would love to explore options with you further!
