We stopped here while traveling up Route 7a during our recent trip to Vermont. I wanted to visit this house to learn more about Robert Frost. I was also interested because he wrote my favorite poem here, "Stopping By Woods on Snowy Evening." The house is located right near the road, so not in the most peaceful setting, but it is a lovely home and area none the less and there are fields and woods near the house. The house is not large, therefore does not take long to see as you can only view the downstairs rooms, which are about two or three. There is memorabilia regarding Frost; a few furnishings, pictures, letters and information on his life which was interesting to read. There is also a section devoted to the illustrator who did woodcuts for Frost's books. There is one room devoted to his poem, "Stopping by Woods." One of the rooms (former kitchen) functions as an entrance and tiny gift shop that sells books, audio, video, etc. I bought a book/CD combo that was read by Mr. Frost. I had read there was an apple orchard on the premises that Frost planted but apparently there is only one tree left to view. The rest of the orchard has fallen into disrepair and is somewhere at the edge of the property. A new orchard has been planted though. I would recommend a stop here if you are a Frost fan or want to learn more about this poet. I was glad I stopped but would not suggest making the long trip to come here as there is not a great deal to see.
