  • Beschreibung


    Katharina is a transplant from Germany and came to Vermont via California. Glenn has been in Vermont since the 1970s. Presently, our animals are: dogs Bela & Bernie, cats Tesla & Cosmo and Greta & Hedy, a team of Haflinger horses.

    Overlooking the White Mountains in the distance, our place is nestled into the Green Mountains of Vermont, high on a hillside, variously known as Blood Mountain or Michigan Hill. We are three miles outside of the little town of Washington and about 18 miles south of state capitol, Montpelier.

    Workawayers will probably stay in a little cabin, aka the "Hobbit House,” where we lived for two winters while building our house. It has a terrace with a view, outdoor shower and a sauna. Our house is a barn structure from the 1800s that Glenn and his friends moved and rebuilt. Our land spans about 40 acres, bordering over 2,000 acres of wildlife preserve. We also have a pond that is great for swimming on those hot summer days.

    Our area is off the beaten path, rural and very beautiful. We love to get to know folks from different cultures. We do have a pond to swim in, plenty of trails to hike, and you are welcome to borrow our kayaks.

    We continue to focus on keeping newly cleared areas open for future pasture areas. Weed whacking to keep woody plants down and allow grass to thrive will be a regular thing. Katharina has some veggies and berry plots, as well as perennial flowers and various fruit and nut trees. Glenn may appreciate help with construction projects or caring for the team of horses. Our ideal workawayer likes to cook and help with house cleaning :)

    If you have experience in any of the above, we’d love to have you. You don’t need to be an expert – we can learn and figure things out together. Most important is that you are a DIY type person who is able to do, and not afraid of, physical work. Our winters are pretty long, so we are looking for Workawayers during the months of May through October (weather depending).

    Note: We live on a farm and need to care for animals. Workawayers should be ok with rising early to get chores done and also not shy away from physical work. We are looking for self starters who are able to follow directions.

  • Unterkunft


    You would be staying in a cabin about 150 ft away from the main house. The cabin has running water, outdoor shower, fridge, two-burner stove, wood heat. No WiFi at the cabin. Arrangements can be made to use WiFi on the porch of the main house.

    Katharina is Vegetarian, but Glenn eats meat sometimes. Depending on individual needs, some meals can be shared, or, if preferred, you can cook your own meals. Alternatively, you can work less (2 hours a day or 2 x 7 hour days) and purchase your own food.

There are all kinds of festivals throughout summer, something for every taste, and lots of hiking trails and swimming holes. As mentioned before, the area is rural. There is NO public transportation.
