We are a small inn located on 15 acres just north of village of Bristo at the foothills of the Green Mountainsl. Only 30 minutes to downhill skiing at Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, 30 minutes to Burlington and 20 minutes to Middlebury.
Our on-premise chef-owned restaurant, Mary's, is open Wednesday-Sunday from 5:30. We have 3 greenhouses and grow much of our produce and herbs year-round.
We pioneered Vermont's local food movement and helped found the Vermont Fresh Network. We live on-site in another building and have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 24 chickens who wander the property.
Our stay with Doug and Linda exceeded all expectations. The place is spacious, beautifully decorated yet still homey. Doug and Linda were warm and friendly hosts, and the breakfast that they offered was one of the best I've ever had (you can't pass up the caramelized grapefruits!) The location is gorgeous nestled in the hills but with easy access to great hiking trails (camel's hump, Mt. Abraham) as well as Burlington, not to mention just near the cute town of Bristol. I would recommend this place to everyone I know!
This was a lovely spot, nice and quiet although on a numbered route. Room was spacious and nicely furnished with extra pillows and blankets, fell asleep quickly to the sound of crickets chirping. Linda and Doug were very kind about my arriving at 10:30 pm, later than I anticipated! Doug cooked me special breakfasts to accommodate my dietary needs which were much appreciated and delicious. The small shared refrigerator in hallway was helpful also in this regard. Would love to return soon!
Great location surrounded by awesome hiking trails, good food, rushing rivers and picturesque towns. Perfect location for day trips to Middlebury and Burlington. There was so much to do, we hardly spent time in the room! Very comfortable bed, accommodations and friendly hosts.
We booked a room during Winter Storm Nemo weekend. While some other people cancelled we kept ours and Doug and Linda rewarded us with an upgrade to a better suite. Great breakfast and dinner. Great hospitality. A nice, cozy room with tv, gas fireplace, and stunning morning views. I would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks Doug and Linda!
I was very happy here! There was an unexpected upgrade to the room and I had a big space with cushy bed and gas-burning fireplace, which I enjoyed for many hours. The food and hospitality were excellent; the hosts even lent me snowshoes to go wandering in the forest.
