What We Love
About ECHO LEDGE FARM

  • The trails and the land - walking the dogs off-leash, riding horses or snowshoeing.
  • Floating in the pond in the summer or taking in the views from the pondside stone bench.
  • Sitting in the sun-filled living room by a fire and looking out over snowy fields.
  • Cooking and entertaining in the open kitchen which flows into the main living spaces.

Location, style, amenities: Just west of Woodstock Village, a hip renovation of a classic white clapboard farmhouse and big red barn, on 91 acres threaded with lovely trails, meadows, pond, gardens and thoughtful set up for horses. Completely renovated in 2004 and 2007, the 1850 farmhouse has a contemporary style by award winning AIA architect Michael Ertel and the texture and attention to detail of master builder Hank Savelberg. Sensitive to the integrity of the original farmhouse, integrating all modern amenities, there is an open floor plan with walls of windows that bathe the spaces in natural light. The master suite and 2 additional bedrooms are on the second floor, as well as additional expansion space. The 3-stall barn has a wide center aisle and heat throughout, except hay area and loft. The barn includes an office with high-speed internet.

The farm, once part of thousands of acres owned by the Robinson family, was eventually split up and passed down through each generation. This house was owned by Jumbo Robinson who could lift and carry 2 heavy dairy cans down the hill to be picked up by the milk truck every day--the cans are still in the little corn crib with the original cider press. The edible landscape of today includes apples, plums and pear trees. 

Daily pleasures range from a plum fresh picked eaten at the outdoor table overlooking the perennial gardens to walking, riding, skiing, mountain biking out the back door on the miles of carriage trails built by the team who builds and maintains the trails at Billings Rockefeller National Park. There is a clear, cool swimming pond for humans and a second swimming pond for horses. The 72’x150’ indoor arena is used for equestrian pursuits, but it could be converted for other activities. Five minutes to Woodstock Farmer’s Market, near skiing, golf and other recreational activities. 2.5 hours to Boston and 4.5 hours to New York.
