Hosted By HurdlandFarm
Vermonters on the Road Details: We have a small family dairy farm on the Canadian border. We host boondockers (Hurdland Farm) and love meeting fellow travelers. We no longer milk cows but we still live on the farm. In the winter we travel around the south and the southwest in our motor home. Home Town: We are located in Newport Center, Vermont (note: NOT Newport City which is 10 miles east of us). Newport Center is very rural with lots of farms. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We love boondocking in the Arizona and New Mexico deserts. Skills or Expertise to Share: We love visiting and sharing travel stories. Vern is a "jack of all trades" as most retired farmers are. Judy loves quilting and talking about it.

This is a gem of a location in northern Vermont, just a stone's throw from Highway 100 and a short distance to the Canadian border. The farm is well situated in a broad valley overlooking Jay Peak and other mountains in the distance. The hosts are extremely welcoming, proud to showcase their region and state with great ideas on activities and locations to visit. Vern and Judy are wonderful to sit and chat with, sharing their experience farming the land and traveling the country. What a great place to visit with lovely hosts!

we had a very good stay. we stayed 2 nights. the place is very quiet with a magnificent view. The hosts are extremely nice. they were always there to check if we were well and came to meet us to discuss despite the language barrier being difficult because we are French and do not speak English. without hesitation, we will return.

The farm is a fantastic place to disconnect and relax while being a prime location for exploring the Northeast Kingdom. The hosts were exceptionally hospitable and friendly, their dog was playful and very curious, and the incredibly helpful welcome packet was a wealth of information! The half-mile gravel path to the pond was excellent, especially considering the non-stop rain we experienced during our stay.

This is such a beautiful location with the most wonderful hosts. The communication and hospitality was perfect. The hosts are full of great information and interesting to talk to. Their dog is cute and sweet. The spots they offer are very easy to access. The walk to the pond is short and gentle one and the pond is relaxing. I highly recommend these hosts and their stunning location as a place to stay. Thanks again for everything!

Our stay and our hosts at Hurdland Farms was outstanding. The whole experience was such a great example of Boondockers Welcome. Electricity and water were as advertised. The hospitality was above and beyond. We were greeted with a warm welcome and a pamphlet of local information. There was much sharing of travel stories and learning a little bit about dairy farming was very interesting. The views across a valley of beautiful farm land to the Green mountains and Jay peak were stunning as were the sunsets over those mountains. The morning walks up a small hill towards the swimming hole were a 3 times a day event for our dogs who loved the farm. The area has allot to offer, Newport city, biking and a list of others included in the pamphlet. Sharing of some bounty from he garden added to our meals. It was a wonderful visit!
