"Ski Touring at Canterbury Farm is the real ski experience".

Our trails were specifically designed for cross country skiing. Opened in 1985, the property is family owned and has been under a forest stewardship and management plan since 1941. The trails pass through forests, nearby lakes, meander by beaver ponds and cross stone walls where the old growth trees exist. Our professionally landscaped gardens are open to the public during the summer weekends.

Lodging at Canterbury Farm

Our historic B and B lodge provides our guest rooms each with private baths, views overlooking beautiful gardens, freshly made breakfast items, free trail use, garden walks, relaxing atmosphere, hiking or biking right outside your door on 200 private acres. We have the wireless Internet, common guest areas include a fully equipped dining room and a cozy den with a working fireplace, DVD, leather reclining couches, musical instruments, books and games of all kinds. Our breakfast is freshly made and in the winter we make homemade soups, chili, and picnic lunches using many organic and on site grown fruits and vegetables.
