  • The view from the front porch is AMAZING. It's no wonder so many of Mr. Frost's poems were about this area. The poets trail is worth the short hike to be immersed in the woodland setting. We were able to view much of the house. The only areas that are off limits is where the "poet in residence" presides. I love the idea of a poet still utilizing this homestead.
  • A great place to learn and be reminded to the poetry of Robert Frost. Go to the barn for admission to the house. Otherwise, the poetry trail and porch overlooking the mountains is always open.
