Annalisa and her companions were as welcoming and warm as the autumn colors we came to see in the surrounding woods. Our room was the perfect Vermont farmhouse room that Norman Rockwell himself would've painted. We would definitely stay there again.
Staying with Annalisa was a great experience. Her house is tucked away in a beautiful stretch of woods. It was very peaceful there, my boyfriend and I went for a wonderful short hike around the woods and creek. Her dogs are also total sweethearts as are the horse and pony! Had a great time.
Annalisa is a gracious host. I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay.
Gracious, gregarious and generous. I recommend her highly!
We really enjoyed staying at Annalisa's farm tucked into beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. Her place is cozy, clean, comfortable and great for anyone who wants to experience Vermont in a farm setting. We hopefully will plan to return next summer.
Annalisa was such a welcoming host for me and my friend during our long weekend at the farmhouse! Her home was cozy and comfortable for our stay, and she provided us with a light breakfast before each day's adventure. She was very respectful of our privacy but also let us come in and hang out with the dogs and other pets when we wanted. Her recommendations for local stops in the area were helpful, and she was willing to gather suggestions from neighbors on the best hikes and places to go. We hope to stay with her again soon!
Regretfully we only had one night at the 1780 Mountain Farmhouse. Annalisa is simply wonderful, we really enjoyed chatting on the porch with the spectacular view of the Green Mountains as Sam the Norwegian Fjord horse grazed across the way. It is such a unique setting to stay in and a great night sleep listening to a storm roll in, just a one of a kind place. We chose the spot because of the convenient location near the Berkshires and had no trouble finding it after a day on Greylock. Readsboro, surprisingly, has a lot to offer! The fennel sausage pizza at the Inn is delicious, as were the blueberry pancakes at Always Emmas for breakfast. Highly highly recommended. Hope to return some day!
We stayed with Annalisa in order to be near Mass MoCA and it ended up being a great stay as her home is secluded and welcoming and clean. Her farm is beautiful, and the ride to either Vermont or the Berkshires isn't too far.
A friend & I stayed at Annalisa's beautiful farm last week. We found her friendly, kind and helpful. She welcomed us, had comfortable beds prepared and coffee, juice and muffins for the morning. Her home is interesting, comfortable, and a retreat without being far from town. We wanted to stay for days!
